No Cook Thanksgiving

December 7th, 2015

Bashioum Family at Club Med Turkoise

The Bashioum family skipped all the cooking this year for the traditional Thanksgiving feast and traded locales for the sun and sandy beaches at Club Med Turkoise in the Turks and Caicos Islands. It was great to spend a relaxing weekend bobbing in the surf and sharing a celebratory toast to all the wonderful GO’s (“Gentils Organisateurs” or Genteel Organizers) and the friendly staff of local islanders. Shout out to the always smiling restaurant hostess Samara, who snapped this photo for us.

Nose Surgery Expectations

Nose Surgery Series

Jessie thinks about her nose surgery expectations and writes: I am hoping that after my surgery, I will have a decrease in the overall size of my nose. I also want my tip to point upwards, not down as it currently does and of course, to have a straight nose in my profile.  I believe that having this surgery will make me a more confident person and will motivate me to be a healthier person.   What I mean by “healthier” is having a better outlook, being more active and just more beautiful all around. I want to take the extra time for me, spend more time getting ready for the day, walk my dog all over the Twin Cities and be more active at the gym. I know feeling better about my nose will motivate me to make the rest of me better, too. It will allow me to be more confidence out in public. I think being more active socially and physically will improve my life.

I have thought a lot about the recovery and I do not think it will be a problem for me. I do not have any children and I have been able to take time away from work to recover. I am also lucky to have family close by and they have volunteered to take my dog for a few days while I recover. I am expecting that I will be somewhat sore for several days after the surgery and expect the obvious swelling and bruising. I think the minor pain from the surgery will be less than the anguish I feel now from the facial appearance I currently have.

Editors Note: Next time Jessie’s story continues with a video interview the day of surgery, then next week clips of her actual surgery.
