Kevin had his Well Checkup today.  His "New" Ped has a son that has Nut allergies, he "Gets" it.........It is so hard not keeping your child in a bubble when they have so many allergies......Home is safe......On the outside, I may seem pulled together, but on the inside my mind is working overtime being aware of everything around us.....I am scared, I am scared of letting go...letting him go to school...I am scared.....I just feel like crying about this.  He asked me again today, if he will ever be able to have a nut, and I said, "No, Never."  He then said, "Mama, can you have nuts?"  ...and I said, "No, Kevin, we are in this together."

We did our shopping today so I think I have everything I need, so tomorrow I will be busy in the kitchen getting ready for his party on Saturday.  You all have a blessed Evening XO XO

Epi Pen

This is what the Epi Pen pack looks like.  You get two in a pack and a practice one.  I carry this with me at all times.  Wherever my little boy is his Epi Pen is right there too.  I am forever grateful we have a pen like this that can save his life, it has been with me for over 4 years now.  They expire, so I have to get new ones once a year.  They are 30 dollars with insurance and 300.00 with out.  I asked the pharmacist how much it was without insurance and when he said 300.00, I was shocked!

Anyway, I thought I would share this for those who have never seen one. 

My Birdy Feeder :)

 I just love birds :)
Now, I just need to get some humming bird feeders :)

On Friday I took Kevin to the allergist.  There was a 10 percent chance that he would outgrow his Nut allergy.  Sadly that did not happen.  I have to say that was a very hard pill to swallow.  They did the poke test on his back, and while he was a trooper..I knew immediately that things weren't looking good when the right side of the pokes all swelled up.  I wanted to scream...Yes, I really did.  For a split second I was mad.  I did not scream though, I held in my feelings.  I smiled and told my little boy as I held him, how very proud of him I am.  I know it must have been scary, the fear of the unknown.  He asked me, Mama, will I ever be able to eat a nut, and I said, plainly, No, Never.  It is a way of life, one we have been living for many years and we will continue.  I thank God everyday for all our many blessings.  I work hard everyday instilling in him what he can and can not eat, and he is smart!!  He knows :)

Saturday Post!

One of my errands this week was a trip to Whole Foods!!  I don't think I have to tell you how much I love, love, love that place!!!

One of the food items I bought was these little Spinach Snacks.

Lil' Kevin and I really liked them.

This is what they look like out of the box.
You broil them for 8 minutes, and viola, they are done.  I served them with dinner.

We also had lunch there too.  I had Tofu (it was breaded and seasoned)..It was sooooo good. I also had a side a Kale.  They have a buffet bar, so I put all sorts of things on my plate for Kevin to try.  His favorite was the pizza...LOL...

I also got some Wheat Grass at another health food store in pots, (thrilled about that one...LOL)

For dinner tonight we had grilled steak, baked potatoes and salad :)

Hope you all had a lovely Saturday, and a great week and I hope tomorrow brings you much happiness.  Enjoy tomorrow, it is the Lord's Day!!


On the News!

I am posting this picture, before I forget.  We had thunder storms and Tornado watches and warnings on Thursday night.  I snapped this picture while the news was on.  I don't know if I will get used to Tornado Warnings.  Between you and me, they scare me!!

New Sectional :)

Good Morning and Happy Friday :)
The new sectional arrived, and this is what it looks like in our living room :)
I love it!

The storms were pretty bad yesterday, I am very thankful we have a basement to go into....

Yesterday, we were gone for the most part of the day and then I baked a lot the latter half.

Today I have to drop off the baked goods to MIL's charity for helping Kitty Cats.  She does so much for our furry friends :)

I took out some ground beef for dinner.....
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday!
Today should be another lovely day.

Wednesday, April 10, 2013


I am super excited.  Look at what is coming today!
Over the weekend we went looking for new sofas, and we picked out this new sectional.  I will take pictures once it is in our living room. 
Happy Day!
