Easter 2011

It has been one blessed week. We've been soaking in our time as a family. Spending our afternoons by the pool and playing with friends. Working on the house and doing little projects here and there. Shopping for our summer vacations. Enjoying grilling out in the backyard and SO much more.
BUT nothing compares to what we celebrated this weekend.

My heart always becomes heavy on Good Friday. The thought of Jesus dying for me is overwhelming. Being nailed to a cross with a crown on thorns drilled into his head and hanging next to sinners when He was sinless. It is hard to comprehend and it won't all make sense until the day we meet face to face. I am so thankful for that day.

There is hope because three days later, he rose from the dead.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.

 Thank you Lord!

 So, we celebrated with our closest friends and family on Sunday morning over brunch. It was probably one of my favorite Easters even though we were all inside and cozy due to the rain.


And! The Easter bunny even came to visit.

This kid is still hunting eggs.

Does anyone out there want a basket filled with plastic eggs? Not sure I can do one more egg hunt! The girl is obsessed! As I was gardening out front today she brought out her eggs one by one and placed them on the grass to hunt. Once they were all collected she wanted me to scatter them over the lawn. I'm sure our neighbors think we're nutts. Oh well. At least I'm getting some sun while we hunt for the 125849 time.

Hope y'all had a blessed Easter.

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…

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!
