Back where I belong.

I just returned back to So Cal from an awesome girls trip Nashville, Tennessee. My mom, sister and I flew out to spend 5 days with our family there and to soak in the southern hospitality and all it has to offer. From the minute we landed to the second we took off, my little southern heart was home.

We celebrated my birthday at Cancun, the best Mexican food I've ever had, which seems funny! We drove down beautiful back roads listening to country music. Pretty sure that is the most natural feeling. The wide open spaces, farm houses, the charming little cottages and the gorgeous cities we drove through were breathtaking. Liepers fork and Franklin are at the top of my list. We might have done a little house hunting! {wink}

We visited the Loveless Cafe not once or twice but three times! Their homemade biscuits are to die for. I'm pretty sure they are missing us and wondering where we've gone.


The pie lady made the Goo Goo Cluster pie for me on Friday. I've been drooling over it on Instagram and asked if they had it in, which they did not so she made it. And let me tell you, it was ahh-maazzzing!
Talk about southern hospitality.

We spent our afternoons driving, exploring, eating, shopping and meeting the neatest people. Our evenings were spent with our precious family and the in between times were spent dreaming about a life here in the south, the heartbeat of America.

happy place

It was an awesome time and so good to be back in the land that I love, all that was missing was my man and our babies. Every time I leave Tennessee I leave a little piece of my heart there. It's hard leaving something you love so much but we look forward to watching the Lords plan unfold for our life and our families! Good things are in store. Thankful for the open heart and promise that God has given us.

Now, will someone please ship me some biscuits and fruit tea?

There's nothing like Tennessee! I have lived here practically all of my life, except for the year we live in Huntington Beach, CA. I'm glad other people see Tennessee as a great state too!
We vacationed in Tennessee in 2008 - our kids loved it. Our favorite day was when we rented a pontoon boat for the day.

Just floated, swam, and fished - so fun!

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!
