Happy Thanksgiving

I want to wish everyone Happy Thanksgiving.

This year I'm going to be at my parents house as every year. And all my siblings will be there as well. Pretty excited about that. Its always nice when were all together.

We don't really have any traditions except to eat until we pass out.

Does any one have any traditions?

This year I am thankful for my family and friends. As well as a place to live and a job. I'm thankful for my puppy and a full belly.

What are you thankful for?

I know. I know. Pick me!

The other day I did a post about a bump on my lip.
Well on Monday I went to the doctor. He knew exactly what it was.
It was a cyst. Can you believe that. A cyst on the inside of my lip.
Well he made a small cut and squeezed out all the puss. (Sorry for the gore)
Then one stitch was put in to close the hole.
But an hour later I was eating with some class mates and one minute the stitch was there and the next it was gone. (So gross and not cool)
O well I guess I wont have to figure out how to get them out in a week.

Lets play what is is!

About a month and a half ago (or so) this bump appeared on the inside of my lip. I didn't think much of it and thought it would go away on its own. (No such luck)
I asked a few people what they thought it would be and they said a cold sore. (I thought that was a little odd since it was on the inside of my lip) But since I didn't know what it was I went with it. I get cold sores about once a year so I called my regular doc to send me a prescription. (No luck with that)
So I asked my father what he thought it was and he told me a canker sore. I called my doc to get a prescription for that but I was told I had to come in since I didn't call it in within 24 hours of getting the canker sore. (Didn't want to have to do that but I wanted this thing gone)
I went in a couple days later for my appointment. I did the regular routine - sign papers, wait, get weighed in, give the usual details to the nurse, wait for the doctor.
My doctor finally came in to see me. She strapped on some gloves and took a look. She pressed down on it and around the area and asked if it hurt. After saying no she took off the gloves and thought for a moment.
She wasn't really sure what it is but told me I needed to go to a dermatologist. So after talking to my sister about her dermatologist I got the number and made an appointment.
I now have an appointment next Monday and I cant wait to find out what it is and get it taken care of.

Lets get sewing!

This last Sunday was a little productive with my quilting.

I completed two more blocks but then got distracted with food (which isn't to hard).

So as the quilt making continues here are the two blocks I completed.

Beard Season!

Its not fall its beard season.

I say this because lately I've noticed more beards and beard talk.

I have a guy friend that calls it "no shave November".

Another guy friend isn't going to shave the entire hunting season this year.

This last one I think is really great. There is someone I know that isn't going to shave their beard until their friend comes home from over seas. And I must say its getting pretty bushy. It'll be interesting to see how long it gets. And I'm not really sure how long he's going to be gone.

Have you noticed this too?

The weekend was one giant snore. But at least I looked cute.

I know I'm a little behind on posting about my boring Halloween night but I'm here now.

On Saturday, the day I dressed up since I had to work Friday, was not as fun as I thought it would be.

I started getting ready around 8 or 8:30 one of the two and had my roommate do my hair. That took about an hour and a half! But I didn't care since it turned out super cute.

Then I went home and threw on my costume (or maybe squeezed into it). Did my makeup and ran out the door.

I met up with my friends Brenna and Beth. They were kidnapping me to go to a party. After I had to wait for them to finish getting ready we had a quick photo taken and then it was out the door.

We got to the town where the party was "suppose" to be but after an hour of searching and the people having the party not answering Brenna's call we decided that they were jerking us around (how childish).

That right there pretty much ruined the night. We also couldn't find anything else to do.

So the night turned out to be a dud and all my prettiness went to waste.

O well there's always next year.
