Sneak Peek...

Here are a few shots of our new home.

Part of the front of the house

our neighborhood
 the mountain of trees is what we see out our front door

 the kids play room
{with built in toy boxes!!}

There is a whole separate living area downstairs that includes a master suite with a huge walk in closet, bathroom, a family room, kitchen area, a movie theater room and a tornado shelter room. 
That alone is bigger than our little So Cal cottage. 
We're so excited about this area, it's the perfect spot for guests!

The backyard




We had a long list of things we wanted in our Southern home. 
5 bedrooms, a bonus room, laundry room, all of the bedrooms on the same floor, a 3 car garage, a big yard for the kids...This house has all of that and more.
 It feels like this home was built for us. 

I'm going to need to stock up on cleaning supplies, over 5,000 square feet to clean and 5 bathrooms to scrub. Is it too soon to make the kids start scrubbing toilets?? 

Chris' fantasy of having a riding lawn mower is about to come true. Pretty sure I will never see him with his big long list of things to do on the house and mowing the lawn.

We are having all of the wood floors re finished to a darker wood, new carpet put in upstairs and some painting done before we move in.
 We have 4 bathrooms to re model and a simi kitchen remodel ahead of us.

The best part? It's our forever house so we're going to take our time.

I hope our visitors don't mind sitting on the floor because ummm, furniture! 

Now y'all know why there is no sleep going on around here any more between the baby and laying awake at night designing the house and envisioning how to arrange all of the rooms.

I'll update more as things progress.

So thankful for this home.

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!
