Recent Happenings..

Kate and I have been all over town this past week.
Last Friday we went to grandama and grandpas house to spend time with them and help out with things around the house. We love our time with them. They have got to be two of the most precious souls that the Lord ever created.
We enjoyed lunch in their beautiful backyard and Kate relaxed on the swing with her great papa.
 He showed Kate his juggling skills.
 She is the best ball retriever ever.
 Kate gave her GG lots of loves as she isn't feeling well these days.
 Kate and I had lunch at Mimi's with a couple dear friends on Saturday while Chris took the GMAT. (more on that later)
 We met up with my Lo Lo, Leslie, Leah and Sophia...
 Too bad I forgot to take pictures of us!
 Kate and So So
Too cute.
 We've been spending lots of time outside the past week.
 It's been 80+ degrees here in So Cal.
 Loving the sunshine on my face, fresh air blowing through the open windows and birds singing.
 Kate is loving being outdoors!
 She loves airplanes and points to the sky when she hears them fly over..
 We've also been spending lots of time reading books.
I've got the biggest book worm ever.

 Sending kisses

Happy Tuesday Y'all!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

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…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
