You better watch better not cry!

Before I start Kate's date with Santa Clause tonight let's back up and look at their date from last year..Ok, so maybe she was only 2 months old but she liked the old guy..
She lounged on his belly and all was well...
Tonight we went to South Coast for dinner at Ruby's. It's a tradition.
 Every Christmas we go for burgers and fries, visit Santa and shop! Kate loved Rubys as always..

We waited in line at the North Pole only to find out that Santa had to go feed the reindeer
 (aka they were changing Santa's! haha)

Hanging out at the North Pole, what did you do tonight?

And then...Santa returned and it was our turn!
Kate watched him sit down in his big red chair and her pouty lip came just by looking at him
I placed her in his lap and this is what happened..

still does not like Santa..

Am I a bad mom for taking so many pictures of my child flipping out in Santa's lap??

Of course not! It was hilarious, plus everyone needs a screaming picture with Santa!
He gave her a candy cane and that solved her sadness for all of 5 seconds until she relived it again
and then again when we walked by the huge tree and she saw a fake Santa next to it..

Yeah, I don't think Santa is coming to our house this year.
I know the year is coming when she will sit on Santa's lap with her list of barbie dolls, purses and animals so this year we are going to enjoy the screaming and wanting nothing to do with the fat man in a red suit and no list.

Speaking of lists....we were close to bringing home this kitchen set from FAO. Kate was obsessed with it. She was baking cookies for her dada and papa and chewing on the spatula in between.

Good thing we don't have room for this in our little house.

She is so precious and has a face that is so hard to say no to.
Let's hope she never asks for a pony!

Poor Santa...maybe she'll like him next year!

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
