THROW BACK THURSDAY: So I have a hot pink cast on my left leg.

THROW BACK THURSDAY; ETSYSTALKERS.COM Yep, it’s already Thursday. The eve of Friday. One of the most awesome times of the week. This week I’m bringing you waaaayyy back to last summer. This time last year I tore two ligaments in my ankle and spent the rest of the summer sporting a hot pink cast. Don’t be jealous. So without further ado, I bring you back to last summer. SO I HAVE A HOT PINK CAST ON MY LEFT LEG. Subtle color choice, right? I was going to get a white cast but I got swayed by the pink (sparkly things!)

What happened, you ask?

[The not-so-real-story] Two villains trying to capture aliens + one super strong karate kick = two torn ligaments. [The real story] Carpool line + heavy rains + wedges + dramatic fall to the ground = two torn ligaments. The advantages I’ve found to wearing a cast so far (in no particular order): · Prime parking · A reason to drive one of those motorized vehicles around Target (and yes they beep loudly like a garbage truck when in reverse) · A permission slip to skip the gym · An excuse not to carry Taylor around all. of. the. time. · The ability to actually walk like a zombie If you happen to be stuck in a cast and are looking to bling out your foot, check these out:, etsy blog,, ORIGINAL SLIMLINE POST-OP MEDICAL SURGICAL SHOE CAST BOOT Etsy Blog

Note to self: Do not show your five-year-old a video of what’s going to happen when he gets his cast off.

Thanks for the suggestion Dr. Doom. I get the idea—to prepare him and all. But I now understand that watching a video of a scared kid having a saw come toward his arm is not so comforting. I think his exact words were, “I’m never getting this cast off. Ever.”

Since he plans on wearing this thing for the rest of his life, I’ve decided I need to buy some cast flair from Claire’s Cast Creations.
Sure his arm may start to decay from the inside out after a few years, but the cast will remain handsomely pretty. And truth be told,  appearances are all that matter in this world 🙂

Guess what? Proceeds from Claire’s Cast Creations will be used to donate kits to local children’s hospitals. Look good and feel good? Wednesday is lookin’ up.
