My cup overflows

I'm in a Bible study that meets every Monday morning at a friends house, we've been meeting for 3+ years and it has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. It's a group filled with women from the ripe age of 20 to 80+, the wisdom that flows and the joy that is amongst us is a gift in itself. They are the kind of friends you can call anytime of the day, no matter what. They know my strong points, my weaknesses, my greatest joys and always know exactly when I need a little encouragement. 
This morning I was blessed beyond what I deserve and my heart is still rejoicing over the gift that today was. They threw Will and I the most beautiful baby shower. The words and verses that were prayed over baby Will were enough to keep the tears flowing. I was completely overwhelmed, I started crying before anyone even started sharing! The gifts were so generous and so much appreciated. 
I cannot tell you how excited we are to meet this precious bundle in just two short months. Having this shower made it seem so much more real. Thank you to my amazing friends Sarah and Rachel for hosting such a beautiful day and to each one of my Monday morning girls for blessing my little family with so much love. I am beyond grateful for you and the support you have given me throughout the years.

Each friend wrote down a word of wisdom or a Bible verse for my precious boy



They are so good to me
I left my beautiful shower with a leap back in my step. I love how the Lord always knows exactly what we need. My heart was encouraged and I have been filled with strength which I've been praying for. The thought of having two little ones and meeting each one of their needs and doing it well is overwhelming. Not to mention the sleep deprivation and temper tantrums that comes along with it. Lots of deep breaths, quiet time with Jesus and time to just be still. I can do this and quite frankly, I can't wait. God has been so faithful and I know that He will continue to give me all that I need to be a great mom to my precious blessings. 
Thank you Jesus for dear friends; for their love, support, encouragement, gifts and loving me though all my tears.
My cup is overflowing.

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…
