A sweet little piece

I am the queen of decorating and decorating again and again...
I think it's safe to say that our little cottage is almost right where I want it.

Our living room is an odd room. It's the first room you walk into when you come in the front door and between the wall space, the tall ceilings and the way the windows and doors are situated, it's been hard to get it just the way we had envisioned.

This is the way it's looked for the past 3+ years.
I've never been happy with the tiny black "entertainment center" in the corner...


So, when my parents awesome neighbors (shout out to the Chunsides!) put out this corner piece I ran over and knocked on their door and they said we could have it...for FREE!
I adore corner pieces.

..Before..

All it took was a trip to home depot for paint and new hardware and and a couple days to paint it...

..During..
I spray painted the new hinges and screws and hand painted the rest

..Ta Da!..

We love it! Our room is still akward but this helps so much with the height and color.
I painted it chocolate brown and added dark oil rubbed bronze knobs.
I still need to add a couple more things to put it in but I'm stoked that we no longer look like the hillbillies with our cable box and xbox sitting out!
I am now on the hunt for another corner piece for the new nursery that we will be starting on next month!

Amazing what a little imagination, paint and muscles from your husband can do.

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…
