I finally figured it out, and I can't tell you why this worked.
As I said I could not do anything with my device other than boot into recovery. So I started looking everywhere in TWRP in and out of the different menus, and for some reason decided to wipe the system again.
After I wiped the system again I connected my device to my mac, and punched a couple commands. Next thing I know I hit enter with my fingers crossed, and my serial number pops up.
after that happened I was able to side load a ROM, and I am now currently back up and running slightly ashamed, and fully aware never to check the system button on a device without an external SD slot.
