ouch.

So, today was supposed to be my only day off this week and I was excited to relax, go to a coffee shop, and blog about my trip to Idaho. But yesterday on my way to work, this happened:

which then caused this to happen:

Needless to say, things have changed a bit.
My car has been deemed totaled and my right arm (yes, I am right-handed) has two fractures and will be in a cast for 4-6 weeks. It was a terrifying experience and I am very stressed about the financial aspect of this--not being able to work, no car for a while, medical bills, etc--but I am thankful to be alive and not horribly injured. You'll all just have to put up with a big ugly cast in upcoming outfit posts! :)
I would appreciate prayers in the next few weeks as we get insurance figured out and my pain (hopefully) subsides. Right now I am at my parents' house, being babied by my mom: exactly what I needed. Now if only I was allowed to sneak in one of my dad's famous margaritas with my Vicodin...

Oh no, so sorry darling! My best wishes will be with you till you get everything figured out.

I had an accident like that {not as bad however}, but was driving to the bank to put in my check and ran into someone... needless to say the wreck was way more than my check was worth, so depressing.

Keep your chin up though, things will get better!

This is part of the reason that I just don't drive, the possibility of accidents like this scares the hell out of me!
Glad you're alright though, hope your arm feels better soon!
Even with the cast you still look cute in that floral dress!

I'm so sorry to hear about this! You're very lucky that all you hurt was your arm, as terrible as it is. I'm sending all my good vibes and positive energy your way! I hope you have a speedy, simple, and inexpensive recovery. Plus on the bright side, you could post a series of "Style Your Cast" posts.. they could be a hit! =)

Oh my gosh! That must have been terrifying.

I'm sure no one will mind that you have a cast in your upcoming outfit photos. :) Best wishes.

ooooh no! Sorry girl :s I once broke my left wrist (Tank god, cause I'm a righty)in 2 places and was lucky to have no pain :) Still, my thumb is now in a weird position cause at first the doctor didn't notice I had 2 fractures and only treated one, haha. Hope your arm heals with lightening speed and that everything gets okay with the ensurance too :)
