Walking on Sunshine

I'm having one of those days - one of those "it's-just-so-good-to-be-alive-and-everything-is-beautiful-and-I-can't-stop-smiling" type of days. I had my 3 month post-op checkup with Dr. U today. My blood work came back great - he's very happy with my weight loss and also with my appearance. He says that I have good color and that I look very healthy. That was great news - I just love that man! So I left there in my cute twirly little skirt and my kitten-heal maryjanes, enjoying this gorgeous, sunny Bay Area day.. I almost skipped to my car! On top of it all, I got the BEST COMPLIMENT OF MY ENTIRE LIFE last night. So - Chris comes home from school last night and tells me that he ran into his classmate Jen. They caught up on how winter break had gone and were exchanging numbers when she saw the pic of me that Chris has as the wallpaper on his cell phone. He told me that she said, "Oh Chris - she's really beautiful. She looks like one of those pin-up girls. What's that artist's name - Varga?" I've never met Jen, but I think she's my new favorite person. I just had to share with you all because if anyone would understand how that made me feel, you all would.

I'm so happy to hear that everything is running according to plan and that life is treating you well.
What a lovely compliment to receive. I agree with her sentiments 100%!
To echo what Shel said, when are we going to see some new pictures?
