Thursday Thoughts

I'm linking up with [life of love] today for Thursday Thoughts.  Lately it seems I can only manage to write blog posts filled with several random thoughts so here goes. . .

{Gluten Free Eating Update}
Yesterday I went to see a nutritionist at the same practice where my allergy doctor works.  She was very helpful.  Seeing her was a little like Groundhog Day for me.  Ya know he didn't see his shadow so more winter.  Well I see the nutritionist and it is more gluten free eating for me. . . It has been over two weeks now and I haven't noticed any significant differences so she wants me to do it for two more weeks.  Not only that but turns out I'm not getting nearly enough protein (which isn't actually that shocking to me since I don't eat red meat and hardly eat chicken lately).  So she wants me to increase my protein intake both by eating more foods like yogurt, cheese, peanut butter, nuts, and chicken and using a protein powder supplement.  She thinks that with the elimination of gluten and the addition of more protein that I will feel better.  We shall see.  To be continued. . .

{Glutenus minimus}
So I decided that if I am going to continue with the gluten free eating for another couple of weeks that I really needed to find some sweets that I can eat.  I googled "gluten free bakery, Boston" and what do ya know there is a place right nearby called Glutenus minimus!  Woo hoo!  So after reading excellent reviews I knew I would be making a pit stop on my way home from work.  I picked up 2 cupcakes and 3 cookies.  I can't wait to eat them and I'll be sure to let you know how they taste.  Very exciting stuff.

{The Bachelor}
I know you may find this hard to believe but I'm actually getting tired of The Bachelor!  Shocking I know.  Ben is lame.  Courtney is a biotch.  The rest of them are just so so.  Dates are stupid especially skiing in bikinis!  Really girls?  I've read the spoilers and know the outcome.  I won't say anything here since I know many like to be surprised.  So glad that The Voice is on at the same time so I can watch it live while DVRing The Bachelor which I can then watch and fast forward through the stupid parts most of it. 

So if rumors are true the newest iPad will be out during the first half of March which works out well so that I can treat myself to am amazing birthday present.  The real question is - do I spend the full price on the new one or do I save a lot of money and buy the iPad 2 which will drop in price by a lot I'm sure. . . of course I really want the newest one so I'll probably go with that but something to consider. 

{3 Day Weekend}
I'm so excited for the upcoming long weekend.  It will be nice to be away from work for 3 days and I have some fun things planned including Laney's 1st birthday party and a Sam Adams Brewery Tour!  And there will still be plenty of time for other fun stuff too. 

{My New Blog Design}
My blog is currently "under construction" and I am so looking forward to me new blog design!  I am due to see a 1st draft from the designer the first week of March so hopefully I'll have a final version not long after that! 

That's All Folks!  Happy Thursday!


  1. I've thought about going GF, but it seems like a lot of commitment if I don't really NEED to do it. So, I'm following your transition like a test run. Haha.

    I guess it depends on how much more expensive the iPad3 will be and what kind of new features are on it. It might not be worth the extra $$.

    Can't wait to see the new design! :)

  2. I kinda want an iPad but I keep telling myself I don't NEED one. **sigh** Not sure what I'm gonna do. I guess if I ever get extra money I might splurge and get one! ;)

    Between you and Katie (and some other Twitter peeps), I've heard the Bachelor isn't that good this time. Most people are annoyed with all of the girls.

    Spring Training is just days away!! EEK!!

    Happy Friday!


  3. I'm impressed that you're going GF (or at least attempting it). I don't seem to have problems with gluten, but more protein could probably be beneficial for me.

    Can't wait to see the new blog design! Thanks for linking up, Jodi!


  4. I'm right there with you on the Bachelor. Ben is getting a little annoying since he's so in love with Courtney!
