We headed to Brookings, OR for a long weekend of camping at Harris Beach. Left Wednesday night and got home this evening. What a great weekend we had! We got to Harris Beach Thursday and were greeted with rain. Luckily, prayers were answered and we had beautiful weather during the days and some rain in the evenings when we were sleeping. PERFECT. More pictures to come.....

I participated in Operation Beautiful. People submit uplifting notes that they've posted anywhere and everywhere. You can submit them to the website and they get posted. I posted a sticky note in a book and it was posted today! Check it out here! When you get to the page, scroll down a little bit until you see "Allison said..."

 I want to give a shout to these beautiful ladies (AKA my sisters = Summer and Dani)
I got home from work and had a package on my front door. What did Nic order? Nothing. It was addressed to me! I opened up the box and to my surprise there was a ton of GF food and a card from Summer and Dani! Pasta, cookies, tootsie rolls, and then some! :) How sweet are my sisters?! I have an amazing family! 

Thank you so much Summer and Dani! Love you!

I have been sick for over a week now! Started with a soar throat. Developed congestion. Pressure in my head and teeth. My teeth hurt! A wet cough. I was in and out of work. Didn't go to church. Just thought it was a nasty cold that was not getting better. Luckily for me, Nic works with a lady that also has Celiac's. Just a few weeks ago she had the same symptoms. Nic called me (Monday) and asked me if I had pressure around my eyes. "Well kind of but mostly in my teeth." After he told this lady, he gets back on the phone and tells me to go to the dr immed. He said I have sinusitis. I went to the dr and sure enough - now on a high dose antibiotic (3,000 mg/day!). Right now I want to rip out my teeth and I feel like my head might explode with pressure. Slowly but surely, I'm getting there...
