A few of my favorite things

I thought it would be fun to share a couple of my favorite small things around the house with y'all. I always love seeing different bloggers homes and favorite things so this is the start of mine. This months favorite things sort of has a theme. See if you can guess..

Jewelry tree that is currently in my bathroom.
It will be moved when I find a new piece of furniture for our room.
I love the nest.























This is a two for one deal.
Birdhouse and candle that reside in Kate's bathroom.























Three for one! Score!
Cross. Candle. Bird.
They are in my kitchen.























A stone carving with Isaiah 62:5, all about the Bridegroom
A sweet treasure found in Old Town Orange.
Oh, and another candle.
This is on my man's nightstand. 























Delicious candle and delicious face I wake up to every morning.
This would be part of my nightstand :)















Fresh cut herbs...
Love the fresh smell they leave in the bathrooms.
























My teeny tiny herb garden.
I am currently growing rosemary,  lavender and tomatoes.
More coming this spring.













Ok, so  I have a thing for birds.
Only the fake kind though. No bird lady here.
And candles, I'm a sucker for a good candle. 

I'm going to leave you with a couple of my favorite pictures from the weekend thus far:


 Lunch with Great Grandpa in Newport.
 Those Ruby shakes weren't too shabby either!

















We had a little monkey in the bed as we were doing our usual Sunday morning washing.

Make sure it's worth watching."

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…

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..
