A room for our big girl

Kate has been settled in her new big girl room for a couple months now and it's finally close to being complete! I went for a super simple shabby chic look all while making it a perfect place for a little girl to play and let her imagination go wild.

A trundle bed complete with the Shabby Chic bedding by Rachel Ashwell from Target
and of course her family of pigs.

Kate's reading area. The kid is a book worm. 
I especially love the bookcase. It was my grandpa Marshall's moms.
We painted it white, can't believe how perfect it is in her room. 
I still need to fill all the frames and add a couple more touches but we're getting there.

Her little couch pulls out into a bed which Kate thinks is super cool!

The other side of the room has a toy box that is filled with all her favorite toys along with her rocking pig.

The Details

We had a custom window shade made for her room which has a built in black out shade.
Very simple and girly.

A sweet piece I found at Home Goods

Bought an extra pillow sham that goes with her bedding, cut it up, assembled and added glass knobs to match the ones on her closet doors.

Ordered these from this Etsy shop

I'm looking for something to go over her bed and a TV for the wall and then it will be complete! 
One of my favorite things is snuggling in her bed and reading stories together. It's so peaceful.
I also love that as I look around her room I am reminded of so many loved ones from things they either gave her or have passed down to us.
The best part of all is how much she loves it and will sit and play in there for hours. 

This is what her room looked like before when it was our office.

Our little house is complete!!!

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

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…
