Vegetarian Tostadas (+ gluten free)
Wow totally got my mind blown today.  It was my first day at the legal office and wow is all I can say.  Its a completely different world in that career field then on the flight line where I've spent the last 9 years working.  Everyone is so cheerful and happy, officers and enlisted are super nice to each other and they work together on cases and legal documents.  Its a completely different atmosphere from where I use to work to where I'm going to start working, its so opposite.
I think I'm going to enjoy my new career, tho I'm going to have to be on top of my A game when it comes to doing research and drafting memos and sentence structure and grammer and spelling and phewww I need a English class stat!
On a different topic, me and the hubby have decided to start implementing a more gluten free diet to our routine. The hubby came across a book called Wheat Belly and it discusses how eliminating gluten and wheat from your diet can help you physically and mentally. Everything from losing weight to exhaustion and more.  So we decided to give it a try, it might even help me with my skin problems.   But now I can't use my morning star products as often as I use to :(
at least I read that corn is gluten free, so you can never go wrong with mexican/tex mex food like corn tortillas =) thank goodness
