Soup Makes the Soldier

Sorry wisdom teeth,
I'm done talking about you...

You're not going to ruin my sunshine!

Or my split pea soup.

And even though you left me with a sore jaw...

 I'm not the one in the trash right now,
 collecting bugs!

Question: Is there anything weighing you down
right now that you need to let go of?

YAH! WOOHOOO! GO KELSEY!!! You tell those darn wisdom teeth girly. YOU JUST TELL 'EM! IN THE TRASH THEY GO. Ha!

Your soft food eats look delicious though. :-)

Also for some silly reason I got really excited when i saw your container (the one containing the strawbs) because I have the exact same one! The one that collapses and looks like a plate afterwards. And it's especially cool because I bought it in BC! It was during my trip there in Grade 12, when my parents got tired of me always carrying around a huge container of salad throughout the trip. So they got me this collapsible one so that at least when I was done I could make it disappear. Almost, anyways. :P

lots of luuuuuv,

I wish I had your positive attitude whenever I got my wisdom teeth removed!! I literally bummed around on the couch for two days worrying about/researching dry sockets. It was absolutely awful! Hope you keep feeling better :)

So glad to see that you are able to eat some soft foods! How wonderful! Hope you are feeling better!

Oh my dear! I just saw your previous post and I'm sorry you had an allergic reaction! It's such an awful thing to happen (I remember I my allergic reaction to a prescribed medication and I was bed-ridden for 2 days). Anywho, enough about that. I am so happy that you are letting your good attitude shine through. In life, your approach to a situation is what counts. It's a time to let your true wonderful self shine through :) And it also helps to have a delicious split pea soup (craving now), and KABOCHA!!! I wish we lived close to each other and I just imagine we'd have such a great time together :) You could take me to that awesome bakery you frequent.. with the funny muffin tops hehehe!

You know, I'm glad you asked that question. I've been talking about this issue with a good friend of mine today, but I feel so overwhelmed lately with thoughts of my future. I'm graduating in a year and since I'm behind, lots of my friends have already graduated. I don't feel bad about being behind, but it's just really eye-opening to see so many of my friends go off into the real world and really start to build their own lives. Especially since some of them are already getting married! Sometimes I feel like I'm still a kid. My parents have helped make my life really comfortable for me and just the thought of being financially independent seems so daunting to me. I already dislike being 100% dependent on them for finances.. and the transition seems... AHH! lol, how else can I put it? But today when I was sitting on the toilet (where most of my inspiration and ideas happen lol it's true) I realized that I really should say my ambitions outloud more often.. or atleast write them down. If I keep them in my head then it'll just be overwhelming and I won't know where to start. Which is how I feel now. But I'm going to do what it takes to get "the ball rolling" as they say :)

XOXO I hope you feel better, love

You are such a trooper, love the attitude. Oh, and god does that soup look good or what! I love how eloquently you put everything that you are blessed to be able to enjoy. It is funny how easily we can come to take these things for granted!

You are such a champ! I would totally aim for more sympathy if I had to go through that. I so I am giving it to you anyway..... poor youuu!!!!! That majorly sucks...

I admire your positive attitude though.

I am completely weighed down with the future.... what to do, school in sept, business, nursing, medicine??? I have no clue!! I am so randomly all over the place. I have no idea what I like. I like everything, but don't love anything.....

Monet said... [reply]

It is amazing how much a positive attitude can do! I hope that you continue to feel better, and I'm sorry you had to go through it in the first place (I'm such a baby when it comes to oral procedures!). Your split pea soup looks yummy...it is certainly one of my favorites!

Great attitude! Looks like you had a lovely day. I hope you are feeling better!

hey thanks for the comment! The bronzer i use is macs bronzer in golden but also NARS Laguna bronzer, they are pretty high end and quite expensive but they are worth it! My NARS was £27 but its lasted 2 years and has no orangey tone about it! Also blends well! :) x

Aw, glad you´re not letting your health issues affect your mood! Stay strong! I´m currently struggling with a lot of things. That´s why I´m suffering from a kind of nervous digestive system... ahem... a little too much information, huh? That´s what happens all the time, when I´m stressed. Oh well, your eats look so yummy- there´s nothing a big fat kabocha can´t cure!!

Cheers hun!!

xoxo Mel

Aww hun, I checked out the piccas of the aftermath of your wisdom teeth extraction and it looks painful! But the worst is over and I love your spirit in not letting it get you down! Keep soldiering on Kelsey! Your gorgeous smile's going to be back in no time!!

Much love
Nat xoxo

I have a lot of stress factors that I need to let go of. It's hard, especially because I'm a control freak, lol.


Megan D said... [reply]

I love the gorgeous, sunny photos!! I think I need to let go of general stress that comes from balancing time between my family, friends, boyfriend, work, job(s), and schoolwork! Wow, that doesn't sound like summer at all. Haha I need to make more time for summer fun!!

Gina; The Candid RD said... [reply]

Oh goodness!!! Such fantastic photos I see below :) Well, I like your new attitude. They are gone, and now you are free to live life again! Wisdom teeth suck, don't they?? I mean what's the point of having them? They always get removed!!! Glad it's over with, and you are feeling better (or at least sort of better??).

Great attitude! I am glad you are on the road to recovery! On the subject of split pea soup, I just made some for the first time last week and LOVED it! YUM! I just need to learn to let things go. I let things eat at me when I have no control over them.

Yay! It looks like a beautiful day :) I'm loving your soup :)

The soup looks so delicious!
I hope that the healing process is going well, and that you and your jaw are feeling better all the time :)

Simply Life said... [reply]

So glad it looks like you're having a better day!

I love that you're not letting your choppers bring you down!

I saw the kabocha and then the split pea soup and thought...kabocha soup?? :)

Chelsea said... [reply]

Wooo! You must be so happy to be free of the pain your wisdom teeth were causing you! :)

Your day reading in the sun looks so peaceful! I love doing that.

I'm feeling a little weighed down with summer boredom... if that makes sense? Haha.

erica said... [reply]

Good for you not letting things drag you down! I wish I had your positive attitude all the time. I'm weighed down by the fact that my wedding dress came in a size too small and can't be let out. So by August the first week of it I need to be down 17 lbs or my dress isn't going on. It's putting me in a whirlwind of depression :/

Enjoy your weekend!

Kelsey, love! Love your attitude. I can definitely take a few lessons from you, because I get absolutely miserable when I'm not feeling the best. All it takes is a headache or a little fatigue and I'm all "grrrrr" to everyone around me. Glad to see you being positive, and I really hope your teeth are feeling better today.

And on a completely random note... now I really want split pea soup...

Anonymous said... [reply]

I swelled up a lot too, it was a while before I could see my teeth! It's ok though, the worst is behind you! Feel better!

alex said... [reply]

my anxiety is weighing me down. and I don't know what to do about it :(

Don't let those teefers (or lack of) weigh your down!!!

Anonymous said... [reply]

uhh such a bummer that you had an allergic reaction to the pain killers. hopefully the pain will sub-side soon enough so taht you don't have to worry about taking them @ all.
something i need to let go of (which i currently am) is my obsession with exercise..and not having to exercise twice a day.

Anonymous said... [reply]

I hope things are looking better for you today lady...I love your attitude though! Reading and eating strawberries seems like a great cure! I have some split pea soup I've been wanting to eat too!

I need to realize that although I am starting a new challenge career-wise next week..I am a quick learner! Hopefully being in a new bigger apt will ease some stress!

You are so strong. I hope you feel better soon.

My professor recently said something awful, this happens to every academic...but, I'm having trouble letting go.

Anonymous said... [reply]

Haha, I wonder what they do with the wisdom teeth after they're pulled?? I mean to ask for mine, but, well, I was a bit too drugged up to remember. ;)

<3 <3

Krista said... [reply]

GREAT post! We have an out of town wedding this weekend that I REALLY do not want to go to. I'm trying to be positive about it, it's been difficult, though! *sigh*

Samantha said... [reply]

You tell those wisdom teeth (or lack thereof, I suppose) what's up! I loooooove split pea soup--i haven't had any in so long!

Anonymous said... [reply]

I let go of worrying about my blog so much and how many hits I get, comments, etc. :) I just keep doing my thang. Feel better girl!!

Anonymous said... [reply]

Lol! Yes, ignore those wisdom teeth because they are gone and soon the chipmunk cheeks will be too.

I've been feeling extremely weighed down lately but writing in my journal seems to help a bit.

I always love your positive vibes! I've been letting something get me down lately and I need to take a page out of your book and put it in check. Done! It's not going to beat me down anymore! Thanks girl!

Anonymous said... [reply]

Way to have a positive attitude, Kelsey! Good job. :) Mmm your soup looks delicious. I think that's what I'll be having today. :)

Kristin (Salty Tooth) said... [reply]

Whew, that is a loaded questions! I have a few things weighing me down, but I'm working on it!

Hope your jaw feels better soon!

Anonymous said... [reply]

Lol you get so many comments, jealous!!!

I do have a little tan going on, it's probably my favorite thing haha.

"save on foods" that's a funny name!!

Christina Butter said... [reply]

Great attitude! I have to stop complaining about working so much. It's only temporary :)

T. Leah said... [reply]

I'm sorry to hear that you had to get your wisdom teeth removed. Ouch! You have such a great attitude though!

It's really weird that i stumbled onto your blog (which I love, BTW), because i was just wondering the other day if I have wisdom teeth coming in.

Hope your feeling better soon!

Anonymous said... [reply]

Hey Kelsey!!! I'm so sorry you were feeling like crap last night but I'm glad you are taking it as optimist as ever!!! sending you all my love and good vibes :)

Glad you're feeling a lot better, and not letting the pain get the best of you.

Nothing's weighing me down right now, especially because I'm on summer vacation and trying to do all of the things I've been wanting to do for a while - catch up on blogs and books, do some cooking, sit and run and walk in the sunshine, and drink my tea on the deck each morning. Life is pretty sweet right now.

Oh my gosh, the dreaded wisdom teeth. I hope you're recovering well! Keep up with that positive attitude and I'll bet you'll recover double time :)

Alycia @ Fit n Fresh said... [reply]

Love this post! And right now, I feel like the only thing weighing me down is myself. I need to reset my frame of mind today! (:
