Where To Begin?

As Ive said hubby came home on R&R and we did some things that I wanted him to be there for like Lil C's allergy test. It was a skin prick test and if you have ever had one, you know they suck. They prick your back with dozens upon dozens of stuff you could be allergic to and make you wait there while your back is itchy and hurts. Turns out, hes allergic to pretty much everything he likes to eat: wheat, bananas, oranges, peas, peanuts, oats, soy, peaches, onions, shrimp, corn, squash and probably more. I keep having to refer to the test results because its so bizarre to me. Who is allergic to corn? Special diet here we come!
We also went to see his developmental pediatrician and he was officially diagnosed with PDD-NOS which is on the autism spectrum. I always knew as a Mommy always does but its still hard to accept/admit. Therefore in addition to all the rest of what has to be taken out of his diet Im also taking out dairy/casein. Theres an "autism" diet that many have seen awesome results with and since its only one more thing to take out I figured its worth a shot. It limits an already limited special diet because of his allergies but if it helps Im willing to give it a go. Special diets have been known to help many diseases and help people live the best lives they can so it makes sense to me. Im not going to get too detailed about it. Just know that probably a good 80% of our food is going to come from Whole Foods or online specialty stores which is going to be pretty pricey for a family of 4. Yep, we're all going to do this diet. All for one and one for all.
If you read all this and are still with me, heres a few goodies I have found as of late!

Time Sure Does Fly

Whoa. I havent had a new post in a while. Not that I havent been thrifting, and definitely not because I dont have anything to say, I just, well, got busy, out of the habit, or became lazy. Call it what you will. I also enjoyed 2 weeks of my husband being home! It went way too quick, but only a few more months to go. Ive actually gotten so much within the past month or two, and my hubs spoiled me a lil while he was here which was nice. Ill do my best to catch you up with the goodies, though it might take another post or two. Also some things are for sale! Im thinking about opening up my own Etsy shop but Ive been procrastinating on that as well. I really want to contribute to the fams funds, and if nothing else offset my own *ahem* habits. If you see something thats up for sale, and you want to inquire about it, please do!

I picked up this rhinestone number in the hopes that perhaps I could be June Carter Cash for Halloween or something but it doesnt fit. Labeled a size 16 but fits a little smaller than that. Not a rhinestone missing! It is for sale!

I loved the print of this one.

This dress appears to be home made. I love the neckline but it needs a belt to give it some shape.

Picked this straw bag up at Goodwill and have been carrying it almost everyday since. Look at the inside lining! So cute!

This LBD has a sheer draped neckline and two rhinestone bows on each side! I dont often have a place to wear LBDs to but no this isnt for sale.

Both of these were a total of $1 plus tax. Steal.

These were bought off Etsy via Kitty Von Purrs store. If you havent checked out her goodies, you should. Her sales help pay for her cancer treatments.

I found this basket purse in Goodwill. Seriously, Goodwill has been good to me lately and it usually never is.
OK gals, thats it for now!
