Springtime, la tee da tee Springtime!

So, I'm still on copious amounts of pain meds. I apologize in advance. You will actually not believe how long it took me to type that first sentence. Or that sentence... Ugh. So, here's a little bit of my weekend... It all has to do with my ankle, shocking! All I can do is sit here and stare at it, so its all I got!

These are my crutches. I've had them since junior year in high school. They have been through 2 knee surgeries, sprained ankles, a broken foot (I kicked a bag of dog food and broken my food, what!?!), and my ankle surgeries. I painted them back in high school. I still love the animal print! Ha!

 I had to take my big boot off because the pressure on my ankle was so bad. The swelling was too much to fit in the boot. It was unbearable! So I rocked my surgery wrap and yellow toes all weekend. 

They had to switch my pain meds on Friday, because what they gave me just wasn't cutting it. The new ones made me sick :( Finally got the pain under control and now I'm feeling much better. I was even able to get my boot back on!

So, I told you HERE that one of my pins fused to the bone and they had to remove a chunk of bone to get the screw to come out... But I didn't tell you that I HAVE the pins! Here are the pins they removed from my ankle. The top one was the one that fused to the bone, bone still attached. It also sent metal splinters through out my ankle when they tried to take it out. The splinters are still in there! WARNING, this next pic is kinda gross:

Lucy is sitting on my lap right now telling me about a monster that lives in in he play kitchen oven. She said he's a nice monster and he like "rashburries" (raspberries) so she shared her "rashburries" with him. She also pointed to the pins int he pic above and said, "Those are swords, mommy!" Love. There are rashburries all over her face!

My Kyle is the best. He has taken such good care of me and done a great job running the house while I've been down. I've been pretty needy, he's been awesome! My parents have also helped out with the girls and brought me a super yummy steak last night for dinner. Kyle got me the most gorgeous roses I have ever seen. Srsly, they are stunning. I have them next to my bed so I can see them and smell them all the time! Makes me happy!

I also changed up my blog this weekend, spruced it up for spring! I think I'm loving it... What do you think? 

Also, don't forget to check out the March Madness special I'm running on blog make-overs HERE!

Poor Kyle.. I'm sure you're a joy right now ;)

I would totally come help out if I could. Or just ship me the girls. I'll send them back eventually!

I love that pic of you and Lucy! So cute. I can't believe you have had so many injuries. That is crazy. I hope the pain is better this week.
I love the new spring look!
