- Gluten Free Mom
- I am mom to a 15 year old boy and identical twin 6 year old boys. I am the wife of a wonderful man. I have had celiac disease for 15 years. Those things define me in that order, everything else falls in line! I homeschool because the public school system was just letting my smart child slip through not learning a thing, on the honor roll no less. While I eat a completely gluten free diet I don't keep a gluten free household. No reason to make the kids suffer with me! I am writing a gluten free cookbook (slowly!) because I can't stand all the gluten free recipes out there that use five hundred flours, and I want to eat normal food like non-celiacs do. Just like I used to, I use one all purpose flour that ROCKS, The Gluten Free Pantry's All Purpose Flour. No, I do not get paid to say that ;) Every recipe on my blog can also be made with regular flour, use it just like I use my gf flour!

I LOVE Haflinger Shoes!
Let me first say I NEVER spend much money on myself, and I NEVER pay full price for anything.
My feet have been hurting for a long time... I have very high arches and narrow feet, and a stupid metatarsal arch that no one else in the world seems to have. Hence I have sore feet a lot.
I decided to buy myself a really nice supportive pair of shoes. I went to DSW (lots of expensive shoes, no supportive nice looking ones tho). Then I went to Abba Dabba's, which had lots of supportive expensive shoes but most of them either were WAY not my style (I am only 32) or they were too wide for me. I fell in love with a pair of Dansko sandals, but they didn't have my size. I went home depressed and empty handed, and slipped into my 14 year old wool clogs. Yep, I have had two pairs of Haflinger clogs for 14 years and they are still my only truly supportive comfortable shoes. It suddenly hit me, I should order a new pair! So I did - and how cool are they?! My old pairs are grizzly gray and brown plaid, the new swirly pair is so fun!
I don't have a clue why I don't think twice about spending $100 on a pr of clogs yet I sit for hours being as frugal as possible with our grocery list, I will comparison shop for days for gifts even! Maybe it's because I know they will last another 14 years?
Seriously if anyone reading this needs a really good supportive, last forever pair of shoes try out Haflinger clogs. Not slippers, clogs. I gave a pair to a good friend years ago to help her back, and she raved about them. I couldn't recommend a shoe more!
