I recieved a Versatile Blog Award today

I recieved a Versatile Blog Award today

Thank you! You really made my morning today. There are so many great blogs out there, I am truly honored that you picked mine as one of them.

As a recipient, I am asked to choose 15 of my recently discovered blogs to pass the award along to, and I must follow some rules. Therefore, if you receive this award from me and you choose to accept it, these rules are for you too…

1. Thank the person who awarded it to you, by linking back to them in your post.

2. Share 7 things about yourself in your blog post.

3. Pass this award along to 15 recently discovered blogs (contact the owners to let them know too!)

So, on to the next part of the Versatile Blogger Award, sharing 7 things about me…

1. I love to craft, cook, paint, and biology. I tend to have too many things going on at once

2. I am in love with the series of books called “The Parasol Protectorate Series” By Gail Carrigar.  One because Gail’s style of writing is so utterly witty, and two because I tend to be as practical as Alexia Tarabotti. In fact, I don’t think I have really ever related to any fictional character before.

3.I am a total foodie.  I can eat something at a restaurant and re-create it at home, which is super awesome. But the on the other side, I am extremely picky when it comes to going out to eat. I’d just rather not eat at all if it’s going to bad and well most things taste bad to me.

4.  The not so fun things about me. I have a pacemaker, hoshimoto’s,  I’m allergic to cats, shellfish, latax, & pork, and I am still afraid of the dark.

5.  I day dream way too much and I tend not to take things too seriously.

6. I really dig the pinup look of the 50′s. So when I go out on the town, it’s all retro baby! Victory rolls, makeup, pencil skirt, heels and all.

7. I love colors. It is actually hard for me to choose bland clothing or bland anything for that matter. I always gravitate to the brightest colors there are in a store.

The Silver Diner’s GF Menu

The Silver Diner’s GF Menu

Both our boys never have been able to sit still for a very long periods of time, before they are climbing all over us and sometimes the poor poor people who sit behind us. Thus, we don’t take them out very much.  We know they have Aspergers, ADHD, and all the sensory issues that come with that, we know their threshold is low, and we know most people don’t have the tolerance for our fidgety children.

But the Silver Diner has always been an atmosphere that has been welcoming for the boys. Honestly, we don’t get out there but every 4 months or so. But it has always been  the boys choice. From the friendly staff, to the music that they love to sing and dance to, to the little quarter machine, and the Tuesday Nights Kids Night.  They love being able to craft, walk around, watch a movie and get balloons.

Well even though we love this place. We stopped going because of the lack of GF food. Honestly, we have sworn off all fast foods as well. Over the Fall, we found out that they had  GF menu. It was sooooo exciting to eat GF that wasn’t too bad, enjoy the night out with the kids, and not have crazy little monkeys in the morning.

Gabe was able to eat a Grilled Teriyaki Chicken, rice and salad off the Kids Menu. And Zeke got to eat the GF waffles and Turkey sausage. It was really awesome that I didn’t have to choose from crappy pizza, corn dogs or fries.  It has long been one of my major beefs with restaurants is that the kids menu is nothing but junk food. Frankly I don’t want to pay $10 per kid to eat crap.

Not only did they have GF foods, they  also had  a Vegan menu, and an option to choose from produce that was locally farmed.  So we went from really liking the Silver Diner to Loving it.
