Single Mom

Disclaimer: I am not a single mom :)

My man is on day 3 of overtime and I already feel like a single mom. It takes a little bit of time for us to get used to his new schedule. He is working 12 hours a day 6 days a week right now. It will soon be 7 days a week. This post is not to complain about his schedule. We actually really like it. Minus the time part. Overtime is awesome and we're thankful for it but goodness gracious, I miss my husband and Kate misses her daddy. She didn't get to see him yesterday and all I heard today was "dada, daddy, dada, daddy". When he called to check in on his girls today she took my phone and ran around the house with it up to her ear and had her own conversation with him. :::hilarious::::

To all my real single moms out there. You are amazing.
Seriously. I don't know how you do it.
I know that at the end of the day my husband will be home and in two months we'll be back on a normal schedule. I don't have to worry about working because he provides for us.
But you, you work to provide for your child(ren), you come home and make dinner, clean the house, grocery shop. I've got nothin' on you. Everyday this week all my single mom friends have been on my mind and I applaud each one of you for making your child(ren) your priority and working hard to provide for them.

I'm sure I could do it if I had to but to be honest I can't picture myself working full time and coming home to take care of kids and doing all the domestic duties that come with it. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

Girls, you rock and you are awesome. Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise.

My countdown is on: April 18th baby!

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…

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…
