The Last Few Days Via Pictures

Ok, here are the pictures I promised you over the last few days:

When Nicole and I went to Uptown Village last Friday, we found some really cool stores. I thought this was a really cute bracelet - and we found it at Charming Charlie

Really cute picture of Nicole near a fountain:)
Ok, Now this is when we were in Arlingtong , at my moms house. This is a picture of the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium , which no longer resides in Dallas. I took this from the parking lot of Walmart across the street.

This is my mom, right before her surgery. No, she was not given any good drugs to look like that - that is what her eyes looked like, hence the surgery to remove all that excess skin from her eyelids. She was awake throughout the entire surgery.

This is her about 2 hours AFTER surgery. ( The bruising hadn't started yet). But look how wide her eyes are now, she looks great!

This picture I took about 3 days after her surgery. The bruising was in full swing here. Nicole commented to her that it looked like she had the NIKE checkmark under her left eye.

I promise to post some pics once the swelling and discoloration go away so you can see how totally awesome she looks! Thanks for all the well wishes:))

Have a great weekend!

She looks great, even with all the bruising! I see why she needed the surgery, and I'm so glad it was a success.

Once the swelling and bruising go she is going to look fantastic! She must be so thrilled.
Nicole is sure growing up! She already has the cutest figure! Most parents think it's sad when their kids grow up... but not ME! I like to think of them leaving home!
But then, I've raised (still am) 8 already!

Way to go Marcy's mom! I can see a huge difference and I'm sure you are so happy to have this over with. Best wishes and have fun shopping for eye shadow, liner, etc..;p

Am I the only one cracking up that the Dallas stadium has a Wal-Mart across the street? I love it!

And wow what a difference for your mom. That's incredible! I can't wait to see the all done pictures.

what beautiful eyes! yes she looked (in the eyes ) just like my mom before her surgery... she will be so happy when all the bruising is gone!

Wow what a DIFFERENCE! Surgery has come so far and it's so great that her surgery was deemed necessary, I'm sure it's going to make a BIG difference in her day-to-day life.

And yep, it's so funny that the "Dallas" Cowboys are actually not in Dallas anymore, but across the street from Wallie-World! Don't ya know that they are going to sell out of every Beer, Weiner, Hamburgers and all the trimmings to go with it from all the Tailgate Parties on game days! Your mom will have to do game day traffic updates!
