I think I can...I think I can...

To say life has been crazy would be an understatement.

I'd list all that we have been doing but I'm too tired to type and re-live it.

We're two weeks away from moving day, which means just days left in this sweet little cottage of ours. I haven't let myself "go there" but it's all starting to hit me slowly. I'm trying to savor each day and store away all of the memories that have been made as I pack things up and take things off the walls. 

These walls that hold countless and precious memories, walls that were hung by my husband, dad and father in law. This home holds our blood, sweat, tears and countless prayers that have been prayed and answered. There hasn't been a day that has gone by that I haven't thanked the Lord for this home. I'm thankful for the love that has filled these walls, for the protection it provided, for the blessing it has been to others and for the memories we will hold in our hearts forever. 

My job has been packing the entire house while my man works extremely hard at the office and at school. I seriously come across treasures new and old weekly as I sort through cabinets and such.

Oh how I can hardly wait to have a dinner party in our country home and use these!

From one of my dearest friends, Rachel.
We each have a set & plan to drink sweet tea & have skype dates with our redneck  southern girl glasses.
(until we convince them to move with us!)

Boxes everywhere! 
The OCD neat freak inside me is going crazy y'all!

But we're almost there. I see the light at the end of the first leg of this journey. Everything is coming together and we are literally in awe of how things have and are working out. So many things have been confirmed countless times and literally every single one of our prayers have been answered thus far. Our hearts are beyond grateful to the point I'm not sure if I'm crying happy or sad tears anymore. 

Closing the chapter on this book is bittersweet but as we get closer to turning the last page there is sunshine and a whole new story ahead. 

Please keep my sappy heart in prayer these next couple weeks and remind me whats ahead so I can stop crying. 

Love y'all.

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…

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…
