Back to pink...

Kate's big girl room aka what used to be the office is almost all cleared out! The new office is 90% done and I am well on my way with Kate's room. It has been an extremely busy week but I'm thrilled with the progress.

I found her bed...

It will against the wall that you see when you first walk into her room and will have big pink fluffy pillow along the back to have a cozy couch like feel. I love that it has a trundle AND storage. I'm thinking it's a perfect place to store cozy blankets and jammies.

The bedding...

Going with the shabby chic look. I won't be going crazy with the style but I was looking for something soft and sweet and this quilt has it. I love that it's reversible and love love the pink ruffle sheets! Those big pink pillows in the back of the picture shown will be the ones along the back of her bed.

The wall color...


Sycamore Green from Restoration Hardware. They have the greatest paint and this color brings out the greens in the quilt and will even out the pink and give the room a calming feel.

Accessories...

I've found a darling dresser (no picture yet)

and a matching Nantucket style toy box/window seat to go under her window..a custom window seat pad will be made to match her bed.


I just need to find a sweet little rug for the middle of her room along with a chandelier type lamp and of course some fun new toys to fill her toy box!

Hoping to have big crown molding installed in the next couple of weeks so I can go full speed ahead!

Office pictures coming soon!

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…

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…
