grab a drink and stay awhile..

This past week has kicked my but big time. I'm a little feisty tonight and I think you'll understand why in just a moment. And let me warn you right now that this post is not lady like or very cute. Anything is fair game at this point.

Monday afternoon: Kate throws up after her nap. I will spare you the details but it was one of those where I picked her up and put her in the bathtub with her clothes on to take them off and then scrubbed her. And when I went to clean up the disaster I had to hold my breath. Thank God for leather furniture and Clorox wipes. 

Tuesday Night: I went to Yacko aka Bunco but we talked and ate instead of playing. Super fun catching up with old neighbor friends. The last 5 minutes I started to feel sick and 5 minutes after that, it was all over. Y'all I threw up for 14 hours straight! I am not kidding. 9pm to 11am. I slept 30 minutes within those 14 hours. I have never been that sick with the stomach flu before. I can't tell you how many people I prayed for in those 14 hours. It was a great way to keep my mind off of the fact that I would rather have someone poke my eyes out and stomp on me a couple times so I could meet Jesus face to face rather than deal with the pretty porcelain object in my bathroom. Might I also add that Kate was also throwing up. She threw up all over her bed. My dear sweet mom came in and cleaned up hot dogs off her wall.


How cute is she?

Wednesday: I basically looked like I was dead and had a temperature of 103.5
My husband was super man and took care of Kate all day so I could sleep away the flu while my amazing parents kept running up food and different things we needed.

Thursday and Friday: things held steady. I'm getting better everyday and no throw up for Kate!

Saturday: My husband now says he is coming down with something. Has body aches...and such. Awesome. Meanwhile, Kate and I are sitting in the backyard for some sunshine and fresh air when all of a sudden she throws up in my lap. Not just once, but twice. Once again hot dogs were flying and I was holding my breath. Got her all cleaned up and hydrated, did more laundry, busted out more bland foods and pedialite. Motherhood is so glamorous. During this disaster of a day my man is locked away in bed sleeping and woke up 5 minutes after I put Kate to bed. He said he's better. I would be better too after a 4 hour nap. I love my precious husband to pieces but when he is sick or thinks he is getting sick or has sympathy sick pains, he is ultra dramatic and today was not a good day for that. I love you hunny. [yes, he reads our blog]

Oh, and I'm also taking care of our little Bentley boy who is recovering from his big boy surgery.
Declaw and neuter. Another dramatic but sweet one.



Can I just say that I am so tired of laundry, sprite, bland foods, throw up and being thrown up on?! Thanks, that felt good. I am so ready to ditch my sweet little cottage for a day. I'm ready to breathe fresh air without throw up being involved. I am so ready to have chocolate again. It's been 3 whole days. You know something is wrong when I turn down chocolate.


We've concluded that Kate did have a bug and when she has dairy she throws up due to a sensitive tummy. So glad it took me almost a whole week to figure that one out. {Will someone please send me the mom of the week award?}

Y'all it's been a week. I'm tired. I'm grumpy and to top it off my husband just turned off my country music for his video games. I am so ready for a fresh start tomorrow.

Sunday is calling for sunshine, blue skies, friends, football and lots of amazing food [including chocolate].

I can't wait.

Before I end this droopy drawers post I do have something pretty to share. I looked out the window as I was washing dishes and saw the most amazing sunset. One of the best that I've seen in So Cal recently...
Sort of took my breath away.



Tomorrow is a brand new day.
A new week.
Yes!

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…
