|This was mere hours after the wisdom teeth surgery...two were impacted...don't judge.|
Yeah, that was a cute look...
I got the wisdom teeth yanked. Besides a little swelling, lots of sleeping, itchy skin from the pain meds, and crying right after surgery when I learned that I couldn't get a frosty because Wendy's was closed, I recovered pretty well. They are still a little sore sometimes, but the gums are healing and I look a lot better than the swollen, ice-pack-age-bandage-wrapped hot mess above.
On to what I really care about:
I SUCCESSFULLY COOKED MY FIRST TURKEY!!!
|Mmmm look at that browned skin!|
I made buttery cream cheese mashed potatoes, cornbread muffins, turkey, buttery green beans, corn, and my auntie's homeade stuffing.
|The dinner plate of glory...sorry, I'm just super proud I made such a big dinner and didn't burn anything!|
And I also made a homeade pumpkin pie.
|I LOVE pumpkin pie!|
It was strange to be away from the extended family for this holiday, but it was so much fun cuddling with my own little family.I so enjoyed watching the parade, the game, snippets of the dog show, all while cuddled up with my man and pooch. Oh, and cooking of course.
I am so thankful for my family, my friends, that I am able to further my education, and have so many blessings that I don't even realize. While the food was great, being able to spend time relaxing with the man and the pooch was what made this day so amazing :)
Love and Blessings,
