The frumpy flats are back

New Orleans and I obviously don't get along.  I can't believe it either, but it happened again. I wish I was kidding, but I swear on my DVR box(es) that I'm not:

This time I was merely stepping off a curb in flat boots and next thing I knew, I was on the ground.  My ankle twisted and popped and then there were tears.  Some gentleman tried to pick me up and I yelled at him to stop.  Sorry sir, but I just knew I needed a minute to let the shock sink in.

This marks the fourth time this has happened in this ankle.  The first two times were from gymnastics.  Twice now in a matter of a month, so I have an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon on Wednesday.  Odds are I'm going to have to have surgery to tighten the ligaments.  Awesome.

Other than the ankle incident, the trip was so much fun and I can't wait to recap all of our shenans for y'all tomorrow.  I just wanted to check in and let y'all know I am alive, but injured.  I have lots of fun pics; even one to prove that I am, in fact, rocking polygamist hair:  
Please excuse my unintentional "ombre" hair.  It's been 11 months since my last highlight.  

p.s. You may have noticed there was no guest post from Jess on Friday.  She had a little situation Thursday that I'll let her tell y'all about.  I just hope she had as fabulous of a time in NYC as I did in NOLA. 

Full NOLA recap post tomorrow!  Time to catch up on all of your blogs.  I feel so MIA.

  16. I'm so sad for you and your ankle... :( It should know better. Have you tried going to a church that believes in miraculous healing? I mean, you think I'm kidding but I'm kinda not. Worth a shot?? I mean, if not surgery will always be waiting.

    Let's trade hair.

  17. UGH! Sorry about your ankle, I had the same problem, torn/sprained it one too many times and they went in and tightened it all up. I have not sprained it or torn anything since (knock on wood). So hopefully it goes the same way for you too!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your hair looks gorgeous!!! I sometimes go a year between highlights too . . . that shit is EXPENSIVE! And boy do I hear you on the falling. Last fall I was in Napa (a whole lot of wine was involved) and I fell on a stone floor and CHIPPED MY FRONT TOOTH. This year in Napa I fell and scraped the hell out of my shin . . . def gonna scar. We're so graceful!!!

    (Crossing my fingers you miraculously won't need surgery!).

  28. I feel your pain. I fall everywhere we go. I fell so hard a few years ago that I still have a hematoma on the side of my ass that looks like a hot dog. No lie.

  33. Ouch on your ankle. I see lots of foot/ankle injuries bc of work and they're not pretty and usually break/fracture again pretty easily.

    I do love your unintentional ombre hair. Pretty sure the style was invent by lack of attention to roots - totally love it.

  48. The ombre look suits you! That's what I'm going for! I dyed my hair dark and left some blonde highlights that are growing out since I haven't touched them since August.

    I'm really so sorry to hear about your ankle! Feel better!
