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...

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…

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.
