Allergy Induced Asthma and how to get a custom blog!!

Interesting blog title, huh? lol. First, let me tell ya about my last couple days.

Tuesday was a great day for me. It was a beautiful day, and I was enjoying every minute of it! I decided to take a short walk around my neighborhood to get out and enjoy the weather, but what I didn’t think about doing beforehand was getting some allergy meds in me. To be honest, it didn’t cross my mind, since I was doubtful that there was anything on the short walk around the block that would irritate my allergies. Well- I was wrong!

I felt fine up until I got on the platform at church to sing. I was ok for a little while, but at one point, I felt like there was something in my throat. It was all kinds of irritated. I had my water bottle with me, so I was drinking that, but it was not helping. Then the coughing fits came. I tried to cough up whatever it was that was stuck in my throat, but it wasn’t going anywhere.

Long story short, it wasn’t anything in my throat. It was my airway closing up. So, I hightailed it off the platform, and went into my purse to get my inhaler. I finally got some relief. That had never happened to me before and it totally freaked me out!! I called my Dr yesterday, and he said it was an allergy induced asthma attack, and I’d be smart to take my allergy meds every day, even if I don’t plan on going outdoors. Great.

ANYWAY…. Let’s have something fun and awesome to talk about, huh? :)

I’ve mentioned before that I hired Amber of Stolen Moments Designs to create a custom blog for me. I was more than willing to pay her for it, because I don’t have time to mess with it. Besides, I don’t have a clue what I am doing!!!! I hope that you agree with me that my blog looks AWESOME!!!! So, I wanted to share with you how you can get Amber to make a custom blog for you!!

She has a couple different packages. Here’s the first one (image linked to store). This one is 10 dollars, and you install it yourself.

The second one is the one that I went with. I was more than willing to pay the extra 5 bucks to have her deal with installing it! I am techy, but not about websites or blogs LOL! Check it out! (Image linked to store):

Believe me, you will NOT be disappointed! She does amazing work!!

I haven’t had a whole lot of time to do any scrapping, but I have managed to make a couple pages since the last time I blogged last week. By the way, have you noticed that I have been blogging more?!?!? :) Both layouts are from the photo shoot I had at the beginning of the month. The first layout I did using one of Hummie’s templates. But it is also using the same kit as what is here on my blog. If you like it, info on where to get it is on the lower right sidebar.

The second layout was done with the newest kit from Shel Belle, and the kit is called Lilac Love. You can see how to get that one on my previous post :) This one talks about my allergies and nose irritation issues. Ugh.

As per usual, you can visit my gallery at Hummie’s World for credit info. Oh, in case you do go there, I should tell you that at the moment the site is down, so keep trying to get back on. It’s on the server end, so we’re hoping and praying that it will be back up and running SOON!!!

I may not be able to blog much this weekend. I’m singing at a wedding on Saturday, and singing at church on Sunday, and lots of things in between, but I promise to give you an update soon! Oh, and I am going to start working on a freebie alpha idea that I had. The idea in my head may not turn out the way I want to in reality, but we shall see what happens!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!

I'm glad you were able to get to your inhaler and get some relief. I'm sure that must have been scary. Take those meds before walking next time!
