Today's the day...

...that I get these stupid jerkface pre-cancerous cells out of my body!  I'm not really nervous or scared anymore.  I'm just really anxious.  I want to go & get it over with & know that the bad cells are gone.  

(Backstory: I had an irregular pap again this year, the cells came back as stage-2, I'm having cryosurgery tonight to have the bad cells frozen off of my cervix). 

My appointment is for 6pm & apparently it will only take about 10 minutes for the entire procedure!  I ate a super healthy breakfast & plan to have a salad for lunch so I can splurge on dinner tonight aftewards :)

Keep me occupied ladies.  Two things:  1) What's your favorite splurge meal?  2) Name 1 place you're dying to travel to.  

SUPER EXTRA BONUS POINTS FOR PICS (pictures make me happy)!

    Thinking about you! You'll do fine and it will be over before you know it. Definitely splurge on dinner and drinks tonight :)

    1) What's your favorite splurge meal?
    A pint of ice cream. And yes, it's totally a meal. Don't judge.

    2) Name 1 place you're dying to travel to.  Only one? Ok fine...Norway. TK ate my pictures so here's some links

    Good luck tonight!!!

    Answers to your questions:

    1. Lobster.  OMG I love lobster.  It's just too damn expensive.  BF and I tried to go out to a nice dinner Monday night, and the lobster tail dinner on the menu was $47.  Holy mother of Jeezus.  We ended up walking out though.  The gluten free menu had stuff on it, but everything was completely dry.  They took freaking CAPERS out of the lemon butter sauce.  Ridiculous.

    2. Greece.  Although at this point I've been informed that I am going.  No getting out of it.  This is where BF's family lives:

    Good luck! Ten minutes doesn't sound bad at all!! I think that pint of ice cream sounds good. I think my ultimate snack food would be nachos and chocolate milk. I've been craving nachos lately though, so that may not be what I'd choose every day. Cheesecake sounds good too, lol. I'd love to travel to Ireland, New Zealand and again to Spain.

    ETA: Sorry about the weird issues with the pictures, lol.

    [QUOTE]Peek - what part of Greece is that?? Not that it matters, it's all gorgeous and lovely. 1. Favorite splurge:   I'm a fat kid at heart, there are so many:<strong> mac and cheese</strong>, a delicious lemon chicken I make, pierogies with sour cream, waffles and ice cream.  Everything I can't eat on WW because one meal will be my points for the day. :P 2. Place I'm dying to go: Anywhere hot - Mexico would be nice. <strong> My shower was lukewarm this morning and it was miserableeeeee.</strong>  I just want hot.  But also - I want to visit the places in Greece I didn't get to see last time I was there.

    I think nachos are awesome because you can put pretty much any topping on them and they're still good.

    I think we should have an Ireland NEY G2G some day! : ) We can just wait until we all have some money for something like that, lol. Did everyone give up on the cruise ship idea?

    <div>I think I'm the only person ever to feel this way, but I just did not love Paris.  Maybe I built it up so much in my head before getting there but I just didn't like it as much as I thought I would.  I was disappointed to find out that the rumors about French people being rude was true, at least to us they were.  And I speak a little bit of French so we were actually making an effort to speak the language while we were there. It was a major let-down for me :(</div>

    My favorite splurge meal by far is boneless wings from BWW and their fried pickles, yum!

    I so wish I could win the lottery, but I'd be boringly responsible and pay off loans before doing anything fun, lol, and then I'd put money down for a house. Yeah, I'm boring, I know, lol.

    Just a random thought: Does anyone know what year TK was established? I just have this funny vision of us all having a G2G when we're all gray and wrinkly, lol. I wonder how long people have been keeping in touch since it's been made ... because obviously we love it too much to leave even after we are engaged/married, lol.

    Good luck tonight! I'm sure things will go great.

    I can't pick one favorite meal, but I'm so excited for a meal I'm having this weekend. We're going into Philly for restaurant week, and we're going to this place I went once before, and ate what was possibly the best meal of my life. No pics, but here are the menu descriptions of what I plan on eating:

    Caprese Mozzarella
    tomato with fresh mozzarella, basil and roasted peppers

    Gnocchi Gorgonzola

    Pollo Fantasia
    chicken cutlet sautéed with asparagus, topped with mozzarella cheese in lemon white wine sauce


    Tiramisu


    It's definitely going to use up all of my weekly points, but it's going to be soooo worth it. Yummmm.

    Travel wise, I'd love to go to Ireland:


    And, wherever this is (found the pic on Pinterest...looks amazing, right?)

    My travel destination is still in debate.
    My S/O and I both want to go to Ireland to visit his family, but I also want to go to Greece to visit mine.
    It'll be a toss up but I'm likely to enjoy either place.

    My splurge meal would be a big plate of mashed potatoes.  Or may be a huge piece of chocolate cake, chocolate cake IS a meal.


    I must take BF to Paris I've told him , unfortunately with going to 5 weddings this year 2 of which are out of state it's not possible.  I want to go to Rome, (again) and Ireland a lot.   I know I can't choose just one place, especially when it comes to travel.
