We take our moments whenever we can, even if it’s just running out to gas up the van and pick up my insulin.
Might not have been a long time out together but it’s nice. We are luck to have a little guy who goes to bed easy and two teens to watch him.
Next time we go on a date night we are trying snowshoeing ( you can rent them for free from the library) if people were looking for free date night ideas!
Chocolate and vanilla bean shortbread cookies. So, so yummy, at least according to my husband.
Funny story... I was staying up late (for me) to finish baking the cookies. For some reason I didnt want to leave them until the morning. So as I was finally putting the last tray to cool, salivating over the Madagascar vanilla yumminess, I get a call on my cell phone. My inner fat girl was full on mentally hula dancing over to the fridge already and looking lovingly at the vanilla almond milk as the person on the other line spoke. It was my doctor's office staff calling with my blood test results.
I have hashimoto's thyroiditis and pcos so I have tests done every three months to check my hormone and vitamin levels. This last time, after having migraines almost every day for almost two months straight my husband decided to ask if allergies can cause migraines. We wondered this because beer gives me migraines and wheat can be a migraine trigger if you are intolerant. So she did an autoimmune and allergy panel on me.
The good news is that I dont have celiac. The bad news is there are no tests for non-celiac gluten intolerance of which one of the symptoms is headaches. The even more bad news is that I now know that I have a slight allergy to wheat. I'm also slightly allergic to egg whites. And I'm not lactose intolerant but I'm slightly allergic to milk. That explains why I've never been able to eat breakfast my entire life without feeling sick.
A major diet change is in order since I just had to get rid of a majority of the staples of my diet... I am always up for recipe recommendations so hit a girl up if you know of yummy noms that are wheat, dairy, and egg free!! Also... no cookies for me. I has a sad now.
