Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you all! We woke up quite early and opened presents - Dean got me what I've been dreaming of for months, the Michael Kors Camille twisted black watch. Now that my unsightly bump/cyst is gone and my scar is disappearing it's nice to have my wrist being admired instead of inspected.
I hope you got what you wished for and that all the gifts you gave where what they wished for!
Merry Christmas!

New Kicks-Wedge Sneakers

I've been ignoring this trend for a long time but these gray and pink wedge sneakers had enough nostalgia factor to make me a convert. Something about them makes me think of my mother's Jane Fonda videos from my childhood and smile. Plus, they are surprisingly comfy! Expect to see a lot more of these when I get back to my style posts (hopefully soon!)

25 Days Post Surgery - Ganglion Cyst Scar

As promised, here's a look at my wrist. We're at 25 days later and I'd say it's healing quite nicely. It appears that there's some flaking happening on one end which might be normal. The absorbable stitches are hidden inside the scar so I won't need to have them removed. Boxing day will mark exactly a month so I'll try and remember to get that shot then.

Ready for the Holidays?

How did the holidays sneak up on me like this? I feel as if the random snow-gate and my surgery made me lose track of time. I've done most of my shopping but I will be braving some stores tomorrow to get a few final suprises for Dean.
I'll be at work all of next week. My next-in-command is traveling out of town and since I took off last Christmas I thought it would only be fair for her to get this Christmas off. Honestly, I'm looking forward to the excitement of the week.
My wrist is healing nicely and I'll post some pics of the progress. I've been rubbing Mederma on it daily and am fully convinced that I will end up with the smallest scar ever once all is said and done. I have some tenderness around the area, but it seems to be lessening by the day.
I now have a makeshift 'laptop' using my Galaxy Tab 7.7. I got a super-cheap keyboard dock from Newegg ($25!) and it has served me well so far. I'm typing this on it right now! My only gripe is that it resets my default keyboard back from Swift to Samsung.....boo!
This weekend I also plan to catch up on some reruns of DirtySexyMoney on HuluPlus- I loved that show when it was originally on the air and look forward to re-experiencing the awesomeness.
Enjoy the last few days of the holidays and keep your fingers crossed that my Christmas present is the black watch I've had my eye on from Michael Kors. I'm in love with it!!

12 Days Post Op- Ganglion Cyst Removal

It's been 12 days since my surgery and here is what my scar looks like so far. I'm applying Mederma daily and hopefully in a few weeks it will barely be noticeable. My main issue now is working on getting full range of motion back in my wrist... Pointing it down is still a bit tender and I can't make it go all the way without pushing with my other hand. I'm doing the exercises the doctor recommended- progress report later!

Snowstorm 12.6.2013

Woke up this morning to  rare event- snow in DFW! Fortunately I'm on vacation this week so I can stay in my pajamas in bed...except when Seth dragged me out to check out the scene outside. Dean unfortunately had to go to work once he scraped his Jeep out. It is cold!

Here's why Texas weather is insane... yesterday the high was 81 degrees. and today- icy snow! 
On the plus side, it really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Cast Off!

I'm at the doctor's office now getting my stitches out. So far the cast is off and here's what is underneath.

Project Home Gym


For the past few months Dean has been fastidious about working out regularly- me, not so much. I finally decided to get on the bandwagon and we spent yesterday converting part of the garage to our new home gym. We put the Wii out there too so I can have more room to do my dancing. Our plan is to work out together each morning- it will be a good way for us to start the day off right and spend a little time together before we dash off to work.
