Hay Fever

As you know, my family went to Beggs Family Farm last Sunday.... All last week I suffered with allergies.... It progressively got worse and my eyes were so blood shot, I thought I need to go to the doctor....


Hay fever signs and symptoms usually start immediately after you're exposed to a specific allergy-causing substance (allergen) and can include:
  • Runny nose and nasal congestion
  • Watery or itchy eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Cough
  • Itchy nose, roof of mouth or throat
  • Sinus pressure and facial pain
  • Swollen, blue-colored skin under the eyes (allergic shiners)
  • Decreased sense of smell or taste
I have endured all of these... (

I have been prescribed... nasal spray, steroids, allergy meds, and strangest of all... A nylon sock with old fashioned white rice heated in the microwave for my eyes....

I will give props to my doctor.... This combination has helped but I will be so ready for this to end! :0

Oh fall... It's such a love/hate relationship!

Happy Fall Y'all!

Fall Favorites

This year I have some new traditions to start! Having little Avery in March has made things so much more exciting! For example... going to the pumpkin patch, dressing for Halloween, playing with leaves..... I now have another special person to share some of my Fall Favorites, I can't wait!

My list of things to do this fall:

* Visit Beggs Family Farm in Sikeston, MO. It will be a full day of fun followed by dinner at Lamberts Café.

* Pick pumpkins from a pumpkin patch.

* Take fall photos of my baby
* Play in the leaves!

* Dress her up as the sweetest little rabbit for Halloween. I will be dressed as a 60's Hippie


I will also be baking pumpkin flavored treats!
