Yesterday was a great day! Nannying was a blast as the girls were super excited for the big BBQ they were having at their house later that night. I had to make sure the house and yard stayed shiny and clean, so we did lots of crafts and also some baking!
That was messy, but it was so much fun I didn’t mind cleaning it up. The girls got to mix the dough with their hands which they thought was pretty much the best thing ever. I managed to finish the cookies without eating the majority of the batter…win!
My ‘work’ day ended around 4pm and I swung by the Good Food Store to pick up a goodie that Food Farm doesn’t offer.
My friend Faith suggested I try going gluten free for a while and see what happens with my stomach. Her daughter, Hannah, had very similar symptoms to me that were completely resolved when she gave up gluten. I have to admit I’ve been a little judge-y of the vast amounts of people swearing off gluten, but if there’s a chance it will work I have to try! For 5.99 a loaf this stuff is bound to do something.
At six I picked up my grandmother and we drove to Bonner Park to enjoy some opening night concerts of the international choral festival.
The festival boasts choirs from Australia to Japan and everywhere in between, and is designed as a way for different cultures to bond over music. It was a perfect evening to be outside, listening to great music, and enjoying summer.
Once the concert ended, I planned to meet up with my friend Jordan at Starbucks before catching a late showing of White House Down. However, we didn’t know there were two Starbucks in town so we sat alone and enjoyed beverages while waiting for the other to show up.
White House Down was really really good! So much better than I expected it to be.
It wasn’t just 2 minutes of back story followed by 2 hours of shooting. There was a lot of suspense, behind the scenes action, family relationships, and a great script. If you wrote this movie off as a cheesy action movie and haven’t seen it, I’d suggest giving it a try!
Do you know anyone who is gluten free? Has it eliminated any negative symptoms for them?
What is your favorite type of movie?
