I've been on nesting overload. Once Christmas was over and the tree was put away I went full speed ahead to get this place in shape. I spent the last 3 days at Bed Bath and Beyond buying new organizational things and replacing all the towels and drapes in the house. A quick trip to Home Depot and a couple hours outside and our gardens have all new soil and flowers for the winter! This 80 degree weather has been inspiring and also helped washing all the windows and screens not seem so bad. All we have left to do is have the rugs cleaned, steam clean the wood floors, pack bags, have the Jeep detailed and install the car seat which will all be done this week!

Then it's onto the fun things! I'm getting my hair washed and styled weekly by a good friend until our little guy arrives, made appointments to have a couple mani and pedis and then we wait!

My favorite is when Kate tells me "mommy, no more necking" (nesting).
Wonder who taught her that one..
Can't believe it's almost baby time!

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…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
