8 More Days...

Til I can eat REAL food! I have been on a pureed/soft diet since my surgery, but I didn't really eat much the days leading up to it, so let's say it's been 2 weeks since I've had a good meal. I am so sick of soups and mashed potatoes! I'm not supposed to have anything that I have to chew. On the upside, I have lost a few pounds. :) Matt has been so sweet. He has been grocery shopping numerous times (many of those just to pick up 1 or 2 things) and has made everything he could think of for something "different" for me to eat. I go for my follow up appointment Tuesday, and I am crossing my fingers for a diet upgrade. :) If everything goes like I'm hoping... It's Outback for the Wilkins' Tuesday night! ...And I already know what's on the menu...

I can taste it already!

Under the Weather

I have been a little under the weather this week. My mouth has been giving me problems, and I had surgery Friday to remove the exostosis above my upper teeth. I thought it would kinda be like getting my wisdom teeth out, but I was a little off base. I have been in lots of pain... :(
Thursday night, Matt took me to one of my favorite places... The Melting Pot. I LOVE it!!

This weekend, I was showered with flowers and gifts... maybe having surgery isn't all that bad! :)

I went back to work today... half day, and I probably should have stayed home. Oh well! I plan on being lazy on the couch this weekend and watching some March Madness... GO SYRACUSE!!

Trip To Russellville

Last weekend we made the quickest trip ever! At the last minute, I needed to get in to see Dr. Dalton (my TMJ doctor/dentist) and he agreed to see me Saturday morning. Unfortunately, another blizzard hit Cleveland that Friday morning... so we had to drive to Detroit to get out of town. Cancellations and delays led to us getting to Russellville at 3 am Saturday morning. UGH! Then, I had to be Conway at 8 and Matt drove back to Little Rock to get our luggage. We were in Russellville for a total of 25 hours... Quickest. Trip. Ever.
Three upsides to this whirlwind:
Jeremy. Jax. Emily. :)
Saturday night was charity ball, so we got to keep Emily. YAY! I loved every minute with that sweet girl.
Seriously, look at those cheeks! We had so much fun keeping her!

I'm not sure who is happier here... I think it may be Uncle Matt :)

We also got to hang out with the boys, but there was too much going on to stop for pictures! Haha! Jeremy and Jax were wild men... and they got every second of play time out of us that they could!

Valentine's Day

I know, I know... Valentine's Day was forever ago! But I'm working on it.
Valentine's Day was wonderful this year. We had plans to go to dinner the Saturday before, but neither one of us wanted to go anywhere! Monday morning, Matt woke me up with breakfast in bed and a big Coach box! :) This was inside...

This made for one happy girl! I love how every year Matt and I decide no gifts, just a night out to dinner, and he ALWAYS ends up surprising me! 
In Charlie Sheen's words, WINNING!
