Well hello there..

August is here and almost gone and we are just getting home.

The first week was one that I was so looking forward & dreading at the same time.

Chris and I slipped away to Cabo San Lucas...

 just the two of us..







Missed our babies like crazy but I will say that I didn't cry, not once! (thanks to our Skype dates!)

 We ate our little hearts out, drank all the yummy drinks, napped, slept, enjoyed actual conversations without having to shhh babies and  napped some more.


After a few days of arriving back in the States, we packed up the kids and flew to Seattle for a week.

We went to visit Chris' grandparents and went knowing there's a very good chance that it would be our last visit with them. Our time with them was so good, we soaked in every minute, conversation and hug.
We also got to spend a lot of time with his aunt and uncle and cousins. Love them all so much!














 We also celebrated my man who turned 31 on the 18th!



This month has been a blessing.
We got to see so many beautiful sights & spend time with those we miss and love dearly.

After all that, I'm ready for a vacation from our vacations.

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!
