Our kick off to summer!

Summer has officially started in this house! Finally! Our vacations have begun!

Memorial day evening, my mom, Kate and I packed up and headed out to Palm Desert. It was just us girls the first night until our dear friends Wendy, Rachel, Taylor and Ava joined us on Tuesday. We shared countless laughs, lounged in the warm sunshine and sipped smoothies by the pool. A perfect girl trip.


 After our moms left on Thursday afternoon we got ready for our husbands to join us! Chris and Mark arrived that evening and their baby girls were beyond thrilled to see them..

We stayed at the Marriott Villas, the same resort we go to every year. It is so awesome for families. The girls loved running on the rolling green grass. They would count 1! 2! 3! Go! and run down the tiny hill...for hours!  Playing hide and seek around the tree was also a favorite. Ava thought it was so funny!
 The sprinklers must come on at least 3 times a day. The girls were extremely entertained running through them and getting absolutely soaked. Our intention was to do a little photo sesh with their matching outfits...these are pretty priceless if you ask me..

 Best Friends forever and ever..

 ..kisses..

 We lounged all week by the baby pool. The girls thought it was awesome that they could sit in it and splash like they were so big. Kate was hilarious and kept her hat and glasses on all day by the pool. My little mini me with her windshield of sunglasses..
  
a sweet moment.

oh how I love the desert..

 The Golinos, we love you!

All relaxed after a great week!
We're so blessed to have such great friends in our life. We're already planning to go back next year and make it an annual trip. So fun for the girls to grow up together and have such sweet memories.

Just a couple more weeks until we touch down in my favorite city ever!!!! Any guesses?

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. 

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…
