That is how many Novocain shots the dentist had to give me to numb my gums today.
[Yeaaaah. Heard that quite a few times.]
If you didn’t know, I had to get all 4 wisdom teeth out today. Needless to say, I am sitting here completely numb, drooling, and with ice all over my face. I’ll spare you from seeing a picture…its not pretty.
Overall the procedure wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but still pretty gnarly!! I’m not one to be afraid of needles or blood, but all the digging and pulling definitely was a little uncomfortable! Especially the tooth that took TEN MINUTES to get out.
For the next few days I’ll be resting it up and eating tons of soft foods!
But don’t worry…I have been saving all of my food pics from the past few days so I could still participate in WIAW!! Believe me…you do not want to see what I’ll be eating over the next few days!
I reached out on Twitter last night for some ideas:
[Too bad I can’t stand jello! Am I the only one out there?!]
Thanks for all the suggestions ladies!!! Smoothies, soup, yogurt, and cream of wheat here I come!!
Enough tooth talk though…let’s get on to the good eats!
It’s gonna be painful to look at all these yummy pics…I am already missing all my crunchy food
At least I will be able to go along with the theme of WIAW this month! It’s spread the veggie love month and I foresee many pureed veggies in my future…
What I’ve Been Eating:
PopChips was nice enough to send me some of their new sweet potato chips to try!!
You all know my love of sweet potatoes…so I expected to LOVE these! And they did not disappoint…perfectly sweet, crunchy, and flavorful!
Pretty good nutritionals too!
Thanks PopChips for the Valentines Day present!
[Got these free samples with my latest iHerb order!! So cool!]

[toast with laughing cow and jam, baked eggplant, juicy pear]
[cottage cheese and jam english muffin]
[more chopped salad love]
What I Wore:
Today was all about comfort for the big operation
[Whom I kidding…EVERYDAY is about comfort. Senioritis…]
Well I am off to keep icing and am hopefully gonna attempt to go eat something! Wish me luck!
Have you ever had surgery before?
This was my first!
Have you had your wisdom teeth removed?
Please feel free to share some advice or experiences!
What’s your favorite liquid/soft food?
Happy WIAW! (even if I am a little early )
