MAY...How time flies!

Is May really over?! I can't believe it has been a month since my last post. I guess I've been busy! Getting rid of my crutches has given me so much freedom, so it's hard to keep me down for long. Yes...I got rid of my crutches on May 19 after almost 4 months. Walking in the big ugly black boot has been such a relief! It's been a huge adjustment, but a good one. My leg gets really sore and swollen by about 3:00 every afternoon, but if it means having my arms back, I'll take it! I actually look forward to going out and getting the mail, carrying a normal purse (not a backpack), pushing a shopping cart, and doing normal day to day stuff again. I go back to the Dr. on June 9, and I'll find out about starting PT. I still can't fit a tennis shoe on, so we can't start PT until that happens. As of right now, I swear I'll be wearing pants every day for the rest of my life, but hopefully my scars will start fading soon. I know I'm probably the only one who cares, but it bothers me nonetheless.

Over Memorial Day weekend, Ryan's parents came out to visit. We cooked steaks and chicken on the grill, and Bill helped Ryan finish the storage shed he built. I swear, it took him NO time to build it, and he had no plans to follow. It's not painted yet (because you KNOW I have to paint and decorate it), but I'm still pretty impressed with how it turned out. Now all of the lawn stuff can be out of our garage to make room for workout equipment. Woo Hoo!

I also decided that our front entry needed a little sprucing up, so I did a little bargain shopping and came up with this. I thought it turned out pretty cute...all for under $100...shelf and rug included. (I sound like an HGTV commercial or something.)

Last weekend we threw a baby shower at my house for Kendall and my soon-to-be niece, Hadley. It was so much fun! I took way too many pictures, but here are just a few...

Jack and Harley had to make sure they gave their Cousin Hadley a present.
