Look of the Day: Sock Hop

Today was my most active day so far, there were parts of the day when I almost felt normal, almost. I spent the morning with my sister, she has been doing a fabulous job taking care of me, and I am so happy she is in town for the weekend! After my usual 12:00-2:00 nap Casey took me downtown to get my Lung exercise walk in for the day!! It was so nice to be out and about for a bit, even if I was kind of out of it.
After some walking we met my Mom, Sister and Gma for some late afternoon salads out on the patio. It was the perfect weather to sit outside, eat veggies and spend time with my family. Eating out seems to be the best activity to get me out of the house for a bit and honestly with all that is going on neither Casey or I have the energy or desire to cook, so thank you Mom for treating us to dinner.
When we got back home Casey's Mom, Sheila, came over to deliver a special care package/birthday presents. I am so lucky to have an amazing Mother in Law. She reads my blog and always knows EXACTLY what to get me. Sheila missed out on having her own daughter so she loves to spoil my sister in law and I with fun girly things. She brought over the cutest package for me, including fancy new socks to spruce up my catheter cover!! She didn't think it was right for me to rock an ugly cover and ruin all my outfits, love it!
Casey's Grandma sent over some feathers and sparkles, because I love that sort of thing.
My new socks arm bands to be!
And a treasure box...
Full of pink!
Sheila set me up with fun girly stuff and all sorts of accessories to spruce up my arm bands.
I may just be starting a trend here.
And of course some get well activities and my own little bug to keep, because all the bugs in my body need to go away =)
And some lovely Gerbera daisy prints so I am never without my favorite flowers!

It's hard to tell in this picture, but it's purple and it's a bit ruffly!
Miss Pennie Lane needed some attention.
I'll be back to wearing real outfits one of these days, I promise.
Rocking an old Urban Outfitters Vest, and my Jbrand Jegging jeans.
Seriously if you don't have a pair of jeggings yet, you need some! I don't know how I lived without these things before.
Yay for Pink, Mother in Laws and sweet arm bands.
