Thanksgiving Lovelies










Is it pretty obvious which part of Thanksgiving I like best? :)

A little update. I feel 100% better than I did the day after my surgery. Well, maybe 98% better. I still can't pick Collin up, and that is sad. I can hold him in my lap to nurse, but that's about it. It is crazy but I really missed him during my recovery. I didn't leave my bed all day Sunday. Shane would just carry Collin in to nurse and then I would return to my cocoon of misery and blankets. I got up long enough to take a bath, eat some jello and discover the most beautiful autumn bouquet of yellow flowers. (Thank you Sara and Rusty!)

Monday the doctor took the stints out of my nose (oh the agony) and I started feeling better. In fact, yesterday was a downright great day! Shane still had work off and Lydia was in pre-school so we packed up Collin and went Christmas shopping (found a hedgehog ornament that looks just like Collin!). We went out to lunch, and then to a cupcake bakery.

OH! And did I mention that due to the 3 pounds I lost from not eating for 5 days straight, I can now fit into my favorite pre-pregnancy jeans! Only 5 more pounds until pre-Collin weight! Though the mammoth chocolate cupcake I ate yesterday probably isn't helping toward that goal....

Winners!

So glad you're feeling better! And those pictures are so lovely I don't even need to eat dessert. Well, maybe just a little. Congrats on the weight loss. Those last 5 pounds will come off fast, right? Good luck!

What is Emily spouting about?
Nat, at Thanksgiving, lets leave the kids with the hubbies and go to New Moon AND the cupcake bakery! I've never seen such delicious looking cupcakes! And maybe we can make Creme Brule as well? If you remember your wedding dinner, i ate up everyone's creme brule leftovers.

I have never felt an urge so strong to climb through my computer screen and taste that carmely cheescake. Oh boy.

Natalie Jane said...

Oh please don't do that. That would be way too much like "The Ring".
