When Life Hands You Lemons...

...you trade them in for Limes!

And that's just what I did today :) I turned an unfortunate event into a bunch of amazing ones. Your comments gave me a much needed boost this morning!!! I was pleasantly surprised at the movie recommendations... I feel like i'm surrounded by movie buffs with 5 star taste. Although there were a few I already saw (and loved too) ... I made a list of the movies I haven't seen yet, and will get to them ASAP:


Ps. Yuki I always enjoy your comments, they brighten my day; your blogger account is set to private but do you have an email addy? xox

Here's my Day in Pictures... 


Squirrel Mail arrived, with two envelopes for me!


Wanna see an X-RAY of my whacked out chompers? Sorry if any of you were in the middle of eating...


So the good news is I have a new dentist!!! He was so good about my situation and promises to get them out much sooner than the other dentist. The bad news is I have to take antibiotics because I have an infection that is spreading down my jaw and side of my neck. I'm going to the store to pick up some probiotics since I know how important they're going to be in fighting this bacteria.



The other one was a surprise letter from my oldest brother Lee, from Vancouver. I was so excited to open it up and see what was lurking inside!


STARBUCKS gift card! I am so in love with the presentation too! A card from every country... so freaking cute :)

$50.00 balance... oOoOo are you kidding me? Lee this is insane!!! Thank you so much!!! Love you big brother <3

and if you thought my day couldn't get any better.. how about a surprise that will last the weekend....


That's right! I got tickets for the Sidney Health Fair tomorrow! I'm taking my momma with me, we're gonna have a blast! But before you get too excited thinking about all the cool products I will take pictures of... remember that this is a little town we're talking about, and our health fairs are quite low-budget. What I mean is, this won't even compare to the big Health Expo that a lot of you bloggers we're able to get tickets too. But i'll take what I can, and enjoy every bit of it!

i hope this random luck will rub off on each of you this weekend :)

Sweet of your brother!! :)

As for the antibiotics, it does kind of suck, but it really helps it feel better. I was on them before I had my extraction, and it was amazing what a huge difference it made.

<3 <3

I'm glad you've got a new dentist! That would've been horrible to wait so long to get your teeth out.

Wow what a great brother you have!!! Such a nice surprise!!! Have a great time at the health fair :)

So glad you had fun mail to brighten up your cloudy day. Have fun at the health fair, and hope the antibiotics kick in quickly to help you start feeling better.

Starbucks gift cards are the best presents!!!

I have not seen any of those movies, thanks for the list!

Me too...send your good vibes this way! I hope your mouth feels better soon! As for the movies...definitely see Little Miss Sunshine (so good), Almost Famous (awesome) and The Invention of Lying! I haven't seen the rest...but now I feel like I should!

Amy B @ Second City Randomness said... [reply]

Oh you'll definitely enjoy Little Miss Sunshine! It's a favorite of mine!

And how sweet is your brother? Awesome surprise!

Lauren said... [reply]

You are so sweet! I hope your random luck rubs off too...I sure could use some.
I was so sorry to hear about your teeth, but I'm happy that you are getting it all taken care of sooner than you thought. For now, just do what you need to do to ease the pain. And definitely get plenty of sleep- I know firsthand that sleep deprivation can make you a very unpleasant person to be around. Nobody likes me these days because my lack of sleep has turned me into a monster. I'm not mean or anything, just boring and barely functional. Its starting to get on peoples nerves lol.
I hope you feel better and get plenty of rest tonight xoxo

score on that giftcard!

sorry to hear about your teeth. my dentist actually pulled my teeth out (in the front area) when i was young so that my wisdom teeth can just grow in. i am so glad i dont have to do the wisdom teeth thing.

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) said... [reply]

so sorry about your teeth situ. make sure you take probiotics or fermented foods with the antibio's so that your gut health doenst get all whacked out.


hang in there girl!!!!!!!!!!

Danielle (Runs on Green) said... [reply]

I don't even know how to read an x-ray but your tooth looks like it's in pain!! I'm glad you found a new dentist that's treating you well :)

p.s. I don't think those pics are gross at all! Actually, it reminded me that I used to save all my baby teeth when I was younger...not THAT'S gross.

Enjoy the expo tomorrow!

I'm so glad you found a great new dentist that you trust. How funny that this post is about your dentist because i quit my job today to go to dental school in Boston starting in August! I'm sooo excited! hehehe

Yuki said... [reply]

Whoa! I was SO surprised to see my name on this post! It definitely got me stoked on life, too! I didn't even know that I had a blog either.

and yes! my email address is yukiizawa1@gmail.com :)

you are so lucky to have such a generous brother. I'm so jealous!

Simply Life said... [reply]

wow! what fun surprises! You deserve it!

sophia said... [reply]

Seeing dentists suck...my wisdom tooth kinda hurts right now, but I am still delaying my visit...I haven't visited in 9 years, actually.

That is SUPER cool of your bro! And $50, too! The most I've received in $20!! Enjoy your cup of jo's! :D

Joanne said... [reply]

Oh babe I'm so sorry to hear about your throat/jaw infection! you are right to take probiotics though..you don't want other other bugs to make their way into your system because of the antibiotics! The only movie I've seen on that list is Little Miss Sunshine and yes I love it! I am going to have to watch those other ones...apparently I'm movie-deprived as well!

Your brother sounds awesome! Have fun at the expo!

Amanda @ . seek . said... [reply]

A ticket to a health fair AND $50 worth of free coffee? Can I have your older brother? I don't have one of my own, and I've always wanted one :)

Have fun at the fair, hun, and enjoy sipping on delicious coffee :) Hope your teeth start to feel better soon, and good call with the probiotics.

Chelsea said... [reply]

Yay I'm glad your day was filled with awesomeness! What a sweet older brother you have!

Have fun at the health fair. I can't wait to hear about it. :)

Molly said... [reply]

WOW your brother is amazing! 50 dollars can go a long way at Starbucks if you get Americanos like me. That is awesome.

I cannot wait to hear about the Health Fair. Have fun with your mom! I hope you learn and find a lot of new things.

Krista said... [reply]

I'm SO glad you are feeling better, if not pysically, then mentally. You're brother sounds like an amazing person, hun! Have fun at the health show...

Laury Ann said... [reply]

Little Miss Sunshine will have you SCREAMING at the end....OMG....SOOOOO funny!!
Funny people was just ok, but worth watching. Not as great as I thought but it's a combo of funny/ depressing/ entertaining.
Almost Famous is a classic, I remember seeing that in high school, always loved it.
never saw any of the rest.

Sorry about your mouth...went through this a few weeks ago! Definitely load up on probiotics and Kombucha!

Feel better and have a great weekend!!

Katie ♥ said... [reply]

So glad the new dentist worked out, and so glad you are on antibiotics now, that will def help!!!!

Yay for mail!! Love the starbux gift card!!! Sweet brother!!!

Have a blast at the heath fair!!!! Cant wait to hear how it was!!!!

xoxo

Adrien said... [reply]

Oh my god! My teeth were doing the same thing- then I had the surg and I'm golden now!

Have fun at the Health Fair- I didn't even realize it was this weekend!

Make sure to add Life as A House to your list of movies to watch- it's amazing- and a tear jerker, but well worth it!

claire said... [reply]

So glad that you found a new dentist that will help ya out sooner!

What great gifts too lady, you are definitely loved!

Feel better!

Lola said... [reply]

aww what a sweet gift from your brother!

highonhealthy said... [reply]

I hope you get those wisdom teeth out soon, the situation sounds horribly nasty. :( Our body needs to figure out that we don't need those chompers anymore! Or at least give us more room for them.. but I'm not sure if I want a bigger jaw. :P

Do you mind watching sad movies? If not, then the movies Cold Mountain and also Tristen & Isolde are really good! Total tearjerkers but very well made and acted.

Have fun at the fair! I would love to go to something like that one day. :)

runsarah said... [reply]

Tooth problems are the worst, ugh! Starbucks GCs are one of my fav gifts. Make sure you register it - you get free addition of syrups and soy milk if you do so! Cant wait to see photos from the health expo, too.

michelle said... [reply]

That is so sweet of your brother! Mine would never be so thoughtful. And starbucks rocks!

Have fun at the health expo! We don't have stuff like this in my city, tear.
Enjoy!

Megan D said... [reply]

A Starbucks giftcard AND a health expo?! You are so lucky! Cannot wait to see pics of the expo! And you must watch Little Miss Sunshine. Such a great movie. Glad you have a new dentist too!

You totally cracked me up with the Homer Simpson thing.. I definitely googled a picture of him and looked at it side by side with the wrap but just couldn't see it! Hahaha thank you for the laugh though!

Alex H. said... [reply]

my favorite move ever is Meet Joe Black.


sigggggh.

Good luck with your teefers!!

I bought the 4 bikram yoga session....Going to go as soon as I can - so excited!

Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin said... [reply]

Ohhh I'm so glad you found a new dentist!! I'm sure the health expo will be really cool even if it is small - can't wait to see pictures!!

How cute of your bro to send that gift card to you! He loves you a lot :)

I am glad you found a new dentist! I feel bad for you....I know that taking antibiotics is not always the best thing, but if it helps I guess you have too? Take lots of pro's!

Have a great night!

XXOO

Hope your infection clears up quick hun! Take care!!

Have a fantastic long weekend. Enjoy the health fair!
