Kate Marie is 3!

Three years ago the Lord blessed us with an incredible gift on a rainy October day.

That gift was you, Katelyn Marie.

I sort of knew what I was in for when becoming a mommy, well actually I had no idea. I did not know that your heart could grow so much and love someone so tiny and whom you just met! Katelyn Marie, you rocked our world on the 7th of October in 2009 and our world hasn't been the same since.

You are so full of love and joy, you have a zest for life that makes me want to see the world the way you do! Your heart is so soft and tender. I know where you go that from. You are a sweet friend, the best big sister, you adore old people and truly care for others. You are our little pistol and have a stubborn side which is a daily reminder that you're mine! Girl, the fits you can throw are impressive. But really I'm not impressed. You constantly want to learn, singing and dancing is a passion of yours which I love and once again, sorry I passed down my white chocolate moves to you.

Being your mommy is one of my greatest joys in life. Each day with you brings new wonders and adventures, you are just what we needed. You love getting dressed up and being girly but you are a total tom-boy at heart. You love getting out in the dirt, gardening and being silly and crazy as any 3 year old does!

I haven't stopped smiling since I found out we were expecting our first baby and when we found out you were a girl the excitement went through the roof. I knew I would have a girlfriend for life and I pray that as you grow older and become a young woman we will always remain close. 

You are precious, Katelyn Marie. 
Daddy and I love you with everything that's within us.

Happy Day, Peanut!


 Love you to the moon and back x3232424123

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…

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..

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…
