and so it starts..

I'm a crazy planner, y'all know that. I have my to-do lists and I don't let them sit around long. I have been working like a mad woman around the house this week. Most of the time I just want to sit but when those bursts of energy come I'm up and at 'em! I went around and touched up all the paint in the house last weekend, scrubbed baseboards, replaced the fridge filter, re-planted the garden, bought new flower pots and the biggest and baddest of them all, started cleaning out the office.
The baby isn't due for 5.5 months BUT in the meantime we have Kate's 2nd birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, have to re-model the master closet to be able to fit both of our clothes in there, put together Kate's big girl room and if it's a boy do another nursery. In between all of that Chris will be in busy time at the firm and will most likely be starting the masters program in January.
Sooo....cleaning out the office and moving it to the garage this month isn't really as crazy as it seems.

Wanna see what I'm working with?

It looks like all of our junk threw up in there..





















I cleaned out the bookcase and the drawers in the desk, I've been selling things like a mad woman on craigslist. Everything you see in these pictures (except for the sewing machine) have either sold or are going to be sold.

















I still have tons of work ahead of me. We are selling the gym equipment in the garage this weekend and will buy a new little desk and make my new space out there. I can't wait to get settled! Things are everywhere! This room has always been our catch all room so I'm excited that it's going to be a bedroom and finally have it's place in this house.

Things to do:

Crown molding
New window coverings
New paint color
Make a nursery (if it's a boy)
Make this Kate's big girl room (if it's a girl)


Can't wait to share the transformation with y'all!

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…

TwistShake Baby

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!
