My 4 Eyes

Today was a sweet day! Thanks to my hubby being able to work from home (as I am a stay at home mom), I had the opportunity to see an optometrist and get a fresh new pair of eye glasses and contact lenses. I lost my last pair of contacts almost 2 1/2 months ago and I have not worn them since. As of now I'm wearing my contacts and my face feels empty, lonely, bare. I can't wait 'till I get my new pair of eye glasses. These are plastic, but they've got style. They have a tropical flower on the sides... a bit pricey but one of those 'got have it'. I'm so excited, here's what they look like:

It's funny when I think how much I hated my first pair of glasses. They were plastic frames, of course, and mauve pink and very but very ugly, plus I was 13, I hated the idea of glasses as a teen. Now, plastic frames are the 'it' choice for eye wear. Go figure!

LOVE them! My first pair when I was 13 were gigantic green wire frames. I think they covered half my face! What the heck was I thinking?

Thanks Mel... Hey 'wire' was pretty nice. I looked like a major nerd, seriously. I must post a photo... after all, once a nerd forever a nerd!
