I'm off crutches and out of the boot! Whoopie! I've been off the crutches for about a week, but it's my first day back in a regular shoe. My ankle still feels really weak, but I think it's a good decision. Last night when I got home from work I did my regular routine of "watch The Office until Zach gets home". When he got home I stood up and had major pain in my hip. My hip was cramping and felt really painful, and I knew it was from limping around too much. It feels much better today since when I'm not wearing the boot I'm walking almost normal.

Classes start Monday. Crazy. I hope I'm ready!

I've officially decided what our most needed present that we received from the shower was. The new coffee pot. It has a timer, and let me tell you, it's a thousand times more pleasant getting up at 5:30am when there's the smell of fresh hazelnut coffee coming from the kitchen. Yum! We tried it for the first time this morning, and it made all the difference.

I've made a spinach salad for lunch, so we'll see how that goes. In my quest for being healthier I'm trying to eat more greens, but I really hate spinach with a fiery burning passion. I like putting it in my morning smoothies, because then you can't even taste it, but I hate just eating it plain. Something about the texture just really throws me off. I also packed, however, a mini Babybell cheese. I highly recommend those! They're perfect snack size and delicious with these rosemary crackers that I found.

And the Bride wore crutches....

Today was the Bridal Shower that my mom and sister threw for me. It was SO much fun! It was great to see everyone. The shower was 1950's housewife themed, which was super awesome. We played plant the kiss on the Elvis poster and I received some very sweet aprons and other things that proper house wives should own. Zach's family came down, which was really nice of them. I really like his family, so it was good to see them all. It was also nice seeing my extended family, since I don't really see them that often. I really appreciated seeing everyone and the very wonderful gifts they game me and Zach. My mom and sister did a wonderful job of decorating and setting everything up. The party was a hit!

I'm currently on crutches....After I received a black eye from playing softball I talked a lot of talk about how I wouldn't play any more sports before the wedding. That didn't go as planned unfortunately. I recently joined a women's soccer team, and sprained my ankle really badly at practice. My whole right foot is very very swollen and I can't put any weight on it. I'll be okay with wearing flats to the wedding if necessary, but I was really looking forward to rocking some killer heals at the bachelorette party!

I've signed up for classes for this fall! (Because life's just not busy enough...) I'm going to be taking Archeology and the Prehistoric World and Physical Anthropology. I'm so SO excited! I get all happy every time I think about it. It was also sweet getting to buy more school supplies because I'm a nerd and love everything office supply related.

We're currently relaxing on the couch while Zach watches the Packer's first preseason game.
