I'm feeling like I'm short on words these days and always forget what I'm about to say, so before I forget I thought I'd share with y'all that our family is continuing to grow! Baby Andrews 3.0 is on the way and is due early June!!! Hence the pregnancy brain. We are so excited and feel so blessed to have another bundle of sweet joy on the way.

Since life isn't crazy enough with Chris gone 70% of the time, living with the in-laws and a cross county move on the horizon we decided to go for it and be totally crazy. If all goes as planned we will be packing up and moving all our stuff + a preschooler + a toddler + a newborn across the country and trying to settled into a new home and a whole new world. And we seriously couldn't be more excited or ready.
So yes, this baby was planned and already loved and adored. 
Kate is so excited to be a big sister again, I can't wait to watch her in action this time around. Will has no idea what's coming and I'm pretty sure he's not going to like not being the baby anymore. But he loves playing with Kate's dolls, so that's a good start.
I'm soaking in and trying to savor every bit of this pregnancy, I have gone into it with the mindset of it being our last :::tears::: We'll see what happens, things could get crazy in never know! ;)
If I haven't responded to your texts, emails, etc...its' not you, it's me. I feel like a zombie who wants to barf at the thought of almost anything that doesn't have to do with bread. I can't tell if my belly is full of bagels or if it's a true baby belly starting to pop.

I'll leave you with a couple of pictures and a video we took on the night we broke the news to our family. I've probably watched in 20 times and almost pee my pants each time. It happened to be on Kate's birthday with the last present she opened... tee hee hee!

Their reactions we're hilarious. 
Love them so much.
We're excited to share this journey with y'all...

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…
