An unforgettable 30th birthday

My sweet husband turned 30 on the 18th of August. We weren't high school sweethearts but he was my sweetheart a month after I graduated. We met when I was at the ripe age of 18 and he was about to turn 23. I remember thinking how old that sounded. Now that he's 30 and I'm right behind him....it doesn't seem so old after all.
This birthday was not only special because he is now another decade older but the gender of our baby was also revealed to him that evening. I waited 30 hours to tell him! It was hard but it was worth the wait. Kate and I took him out to lunch that afternoon at our favorite crepes restaurant and that evening we celebrated a quiet dinner out. It was so nice to just sit and talk and enjoy each others company. I made him wait the entire dinner before telling him if he was going to have a son or another daughter.

Our waitress walked up behind him and this is how I broke the news to him...





A BOY!

My man is going to have a son! He was shocked since he was sure it was another girl. After a shopping trip to Baby Gap after dinner and talking about him it all started to become more real! 

30 years and the best is yet to come!
Although, I'm not really sure it gets better than this...

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…
