This is getting ridiculous!

Twice in one week, I have had a serious allergic reaction to food. Tonight, it was Oatmeal Raisin cookies from Pillsbury. You know, the break apart dough that you just throw in the oven. Apparently, they are made with walnut flour. Now, what are the odds of that? I had no idea, bit into a cookie, and wham! It was Thanksgiving Day all over again. So, I am now living on a benadryl-drugged-mommy-brain. Can’t get much worse! But, bear with me if there are lots of grammatical errors in this post. I can’t be held responsible for what I say while on benadryl. I usually check ingredients before I buy anything, but I never, ever thought about walnuts (or walnut flour!!) in an oatmeal cookie. Guess I learned my lesson for next time!

In other news, I received another package from the baby shower on Saturday, and one today. The package on Saturday came from Beadiful Items. She sent me a gorgeous spatula and serving spoon set. I love the gems she used on them. They really are very pretty. Here’s a picture:

The other item that arrived today was from Seventh Generation. I’ve seen their diapers and such in our grocery store, but I’ve never tried them. I’m excited to test out everything they sent – a pack of diapers, wipes and refill, a reusable bag, and even laundry detergent! Look:

Please take a minute to check out Beadiful Items and Seventh Generation!

We also got a nice surprise today: SNOW! It doesn’t usually stick when it falls, but it coated the mountains beautifully today. Look how pretty our cow pasture is:

I know we moved South to get away from snow, but this snowfall made the kids’ day! And, if I have to be honest, it was really beautiful. I have to admit that much.

    I have been lucky enough not to have any food allergies however my butt and thighs don’t think it is so lucky. I can and will eat about anything! LOL!

    Allergies are so weird (and scary). Maybe you should get an epi-pen from the doctor, just in case?
