fashion forestry: Ms. Tips $35 vintage shop giveaway

I have been following the fashion of Nicole, aka "Fashion Forestry" for almost 2 years now. I love every single thing she wears, makes, and dreams about. Maybe someday we can go shopping together.

i am having a septoplasty, along with a few other corrective sinus surgeries, performed a few days before christmas this year.

according to my cat scan, all 8 of my sinus cavities are...well, messed up. i have a severely deviated septum, my turbinates are swollen and i have a few polyps.

i still don't know exactly how they're going to go about correcting all these problems. all i know is that because they have to do so many things, i have to wear some sort of helmet with electrodes in it to help guide them around my head. this proves that even during surgery, i am going to be a total dork.

HOLY CRAP! i just google image

searched "septoplasty" and found this picture and now i am freaking out. grossssssssssss.

i also am not a fan of going under general anesthesia. i just always think that they will mess up on the amount and i will wake up during surgery.

life is scary sometimes. even though this is a routine procedure for deviated septums/sinus issues, i am still terrified because i've never had surgery before (other than wisdom teeth extraction).

the surgery is going to be 2-2 1/2 hours long and the recovery time will be 2 or more weeks. yay for a bandaged, medicated and painful christmas.

reasons why i am looking forward to the winter

a.) i can start wearing my long wool skirts and try to emulate lauren bacall.

b.) aaron and kaitlin's return to this continent

c.) more baking

d.) fur hats

e.) cozy dinners with friends

f.) my septoplasty. i.e. being able to breathe like a normal person

books i love
