Mother's Day

Mother's Day is such a treat. I remember when I was a kid thinking how lucky my mom was to have two days just for her. Her birthday and mother's day. I would always dream about my own mother's day and having two days out of the year to celebrate me. That sounds so selfish looking back but I could have never imagined Mother's day could and would be so wonderful.

I love mothers day for three reasons.

#1. I get to celebrate and honor the woman who means the most to me, my mom. I do my best to show her year round how much I care for her and love her but Mother's day, the spotlight is on her and she deserve every second of it. And mom, I do not tell you this enough... thank you for all you do for us. You will never know how much it means and your never ending love for us fills my heart with so much JOY!

#2. I get to celebrate the wonderful mother in law that the Lord blessed me with. The woman who raised an incredible man that God made just for me. I am so thankful for her and the mom figure she plays in my life.

#3. I get to celebrate being a mommy! There is nothing better in the world than being a mom. Nothing! The joy. The rewards. The constant giggles. The snuggles. The kisses. The getting up in the middle of the night to comfort her when she needs it. It is wonderful and I celebrate the gift of being a mom to our precious Kate daily!

I am so blessed to have a mom and mother in law who love Jesus. Both whom raised their children up in the Lord and have Him as the foundation of their homes. I love this verse. It reflects how Chris and I were raised and we pray that it will remain the same for our children. 

"Teach your children to choose the right path, and when they are older,
 they will remain upon it". 
 Proverbs 22:6

I  had a wonderful mother's day weekend. I had two full days of shopping ALONE. It was so peaceful and exciting. My husband set me free and off I went to pick out new things for our house and new clothes for me. You know you're a mom when a new duvet for your bed is exciting! I was able to sleep in until 8 this morning and had the cutest little peanut run in to wake me up and bring me breakfast in bed. Nutella and banana pancakes with my favorite caramel mocha!

 look how proud my baby girl is

I had a little buddy join me for breakfast in bed

My man took me to Sonic for lunch. Sounds ghetto but it was wonderful. I was pretending that we were in Tennessee. And then I remembered that I will be there in just a few weeks. Oh how I can't wait. {can't wait to see my sweet family who I miss sooo much}

We headed over to mom and dads house for dinner and dessert and spent sweet time with grandma and grandpa.  The men cooked a delicious dinner for their girls and my husband made a smores pie that was to die for. I'll post the recipe this week. Mmm!

 my momma and baby sister

 the most precious soul on earth..
I am feeling so loved and cherished tonight. Thank you Jesus for my Grandma's who were are are fabulous moms, to my mom who is the BEST, to my mother in law who is a sweetheart and to my baby girl for making me a proud mommy. I really never knew life could be so sweet.

And a very happy mother's day to all the momma's out there! To the widowed and single moms, I pray that your heart was filled with an abundance of joy today and everyday. To the soon to be mommies, enjoy every kick and hiccup from the inside! Your arms will soon be full and your heart will be even bigger! I am thankful for all my mommy friends, you fill my life with so much love and laughter.

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…
