Packing for College

Its that time of year again. Time to go back to school. Being a college kid that has a significant distance to travel (about 6 hours) I have to pack everything. To do this I took over my brothers room (he stayed and worked at the college he goes to all summer). This is just the start of my packing which tends to take a really long time. Hopefully I will get most of it done tomorrow so I have time to do a few last minute projects I've been planning. I'll have pictures of my dorm up hopefully next week the goal is to do that on Monday.

I really really want to do a giveaway. The problem is, I don't have and followers to give stuff away too. I have quite a few things planned for this, and I really hope I can do one relatively soon. I would be willing to do a giveaway when I hit 50 followers. I have a plan with some jewelry, made by me, some of my favorite beauty items, along with some other fun items. If you are interested in a giveaway and hopeful future giveaways, follow my blog.

Had surgery this morning. It went well, took about 90 minutes. It took me a little while to wake up in the post op holding room. I've been up for most of the day after surgery with a few naps. For being at a hospital I figured getting gluten free food would be easier than it has turned out to be. My mouth and throat are REALLY dry. I have some minor incisional pain especially on my left side but its not to bad. I'm spending the night in Children's because of the long drive home but will be leaving tomorrow morning, hopefully early, its always nice getting home. I'll blog tomorrow and hopefully with in the next week I'll get my H&M haul up.

P.F. Chang's and Surgery

I'm in Milwaukee for the reversal of my Nuss Procedure tomorrow. We left a little after noon and got here around 4:30ish. We went shopping when we got here. My mom and I went to H&M (my favorite clothing store ever) and to Boston Store to look at shoes. Afterwards we went to our hotel room and unpacked the car and decided where to go for dinner. This can be a rather complicated process with me being Gluten Free. So I started looking up menus online. I really wanted Chinese food, so I started with the P.F. Chang's website. I went to the menu page and they had a whole Gluten Free sections, at this point I decided we were going to P.F. Chang's.

The Entry to P.F. Chang's at the Mayfair Mall.

One of the Horses by the door. My parents said I couldn't get one because it wouldn't fit in the back yard. 

What was left of my plate before I ate more. (It was really good)
Gluten Free Caramel Mango Chicken.

The Plates at the end. 

The Gluten Free Chocolate Dome Cake with Raspberry Sauce, Fresh Raspberries and Strawberries. Which I brought back to the hotel to eat.

Just over two years ago I had the Nuss Procedure performed to straighten the indentation in my sternum (Pectus Excavatum). I was having massive amounts of pain before had and my parents and I decided I needed to have the surgery done. I was in the hospital for five days after surgery. I had very few problems with it till this past Thanks Giving when it moved causing pain where the bar is. So it is time for it to be taken out. It will be done tomorrow at Milwaukee Children's Hospital and I will hopefully be going home on Wednesday. 
The x-ray of my chest from November. It was put in at an angle and moved only a little bit.

Birthday Fun

This past week it was my moms birthday. So I figured I would show what I got her. Plus I love presents and wrapping things. I was probably more excited about my moms birthday presents that she was.

The Hoops and Yoyo card I got her from Hallmark.

The present from my brother and I. Lauren by Ralph Lauren Perfume

The Bracelet I made her. Its like one she bought from Twisted Sisters but in different colors. Shes wanted it for a while.
