The Weekend a Famous Designer & I Became Insta Friends

I'll explain the title after a brief prologue, but first...I'm back- a fact which you likely deduced from seeing this new {!!} blog post. I had surgery on Friday and spent the majority of my weekend doing this:

Pain medications! Icy Hot! After-care instructions galore!

I'm still really sore, but also very grateful for my doctor. Sometimes it stinks being a girl (men have NO idea what it's like to deal with "girl" issues!) This was an annoying, but very necessary operation and Dr. D made me feel so calm about everything. (As did the anesthesiologist, who looked just like Vicki's ex-husband Don from that show Real Housewives of Orange County. Thank God for that sweet man and his syringe of happy juice.)

Anyway, back to the real point of this very insightful blog post...

So, last Thursday night, I posted a photo on Instagram of a delicious pair of Brian Atwood heels. Here is what that Insta photo and caption looked like:

Saturday morning, two days later, I checked my Instagram and saw that Mr. Atwood himself had replied.

I had to have my mom double-check for me, just to ensure I wasn't hallucinating from the meds.

{I wasn't.}

How crazy, right? Just bananas, bunnies.

I'm off to...well, nowhere. My derriere is staying on this couch until tomorrow when I can return to work. See y'all tomorrow for an outfit post featuring a delicious little faux-leather skirt from Maude Boutique. You'll want to have your debit card nearby so you can purchase one for yourself.

Be blessed, lovelies-
