No Gluten In These Shorts...

Yep...I am still alive.  Between getting the boys ready and back to school, to soccer practice and games, the mounds of errands and appointments I ignored all summer due to school and studying for my state certification next week, I just have not had the time or energy to blog...but, I am back in action...outfits, job search and my new gluten free lifestyle.

Since summer temps have finally is about time, since fall is around the corner... I have been styling shorts lately...

If you follow me om Instagram, you would know I am obsessed with these new Gap kicks.  Comfy, slip-on, leopard print...what more can a mom who has too much on her plate can ask for!!

No need for a necklace when you already have on on your shirt!

I probably never discussed it before, but I have had stomach issues for the last few years...I will spare you the details.  Me and my doctor decided a gluten free diet might alleviate my problems.  So, beginning the start of last week, I have been eating gluten free and it seriously amazing how much better I feel already!!  To start, I have lost about 3 inches from my abdomen.  Besides making my feel better in my clothes, the de-bloat has alleviated the pressure and soreness on my scar tissue lump.  Also, ability get food through my body...bathroom issues...have improved amazingly!  

I was worried that cooking and getting gluten free foods would be a issue, but Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and the world wide web has provided everything I need!  Last night, Alex and I made gluten free brownies and they were delicious.  So, darn delicious that I ate the whole pan!  My favorite dinner recipe baked spaghetti squash with vegetables and topped with cheese...very yummy!  I even found gluten free pizza crust today at whole Food's...I was so excited, I might have just done the happy dance right there in the store! 

On the job hunt front...still currently unemployed and taking my state accreditation test next Friday.  I had a job interview last week...thought it went pretty well... I guess I was dice! After I pass my test, I plan to hit the job search hard...fingers crossed I am fully employed at a hospital by the holidays.  

Back to I come...brace yourselves...
