Double Date Night, Family Style

Chris and I have been blessed with the greatest friends. I've known Rachel ever since we were born but never started hanging out until a few years ago when we both got engaged. Her and Mark were married two weeks before us and we had our babies 10 days apart. We had wedding showers and baby showers together, went through Lamaze class together and are having so much fun raising our girls together.

Rach and I get together at least once a week and recently have been doing family date night once a week this month.
Last week we went to Bruxies in Old Town Orange to introduce our guys to fab waffles and this week we went to Downtown Disney for dinner and free dessert.

After dinner the mariachi band was playing on stage in Downtown Disney, the girls danced and danced and danced until our faces hurt from laughing. Next time we're going back just for the mariachi band with our video cameras. Those girls have moves like no ones ever seen before. They are definitely white.


Between Rach and I, we find good deals and tonight she scored! Haagen-Dazs was giving away free ice cream from 4-8pm. The line was maybe a 4 minute wait and we all walked out with free ice cream cones of our favorite ice cream! x2 because we ate the girls scoops :)

People watching was at it's finest last night. I even got an embarrassing laughing attack because of it. 
I have to say the most embarrassing thing we saw were our husbands...

Synchronized Stroller Rides
Need I say more? They took off weaving their way through the crowd as Rachel and I walked behind {way behind} them and laughed. Our poor girls and their crazy dads. 

Ah, such fun! We love our friends and are so excited about our upcoming vacation with these 3!

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!
