New specs

Did you know that I wear eyeglasses? Well, I do. I have never owned a pair of contact lens - only glasses for me. I usually buy a new pair of frames every 2 years. A few weeks ago, I looked in the mirror and realized that I HATED my glasses. Time to visit the optometrist.

So, I went to the eye doctor today, and ordered a brand spanking new pair of glasses! I love getting new glasses! I went into the office with the intentions of buying wire frames. Of course, I couldn't find one pair of awesome wire frames. But I did find an awesome pair of plastic frames...My new frames are a honey color, as opposed to the black shown here. I think they look spiffy, even if they do closely resemble my current glasses...

I think the honey color is what made me purchase the new frames. I am tired of my dark frames. A softer color will lighten the mood a little.

I paid a pretty penny for my new frames. I came home and found the exact same frames online for HALF of the price. Grrrr.

I hate when I lose a deal. Damn stores took away your happiness but they are adorable.

I have always wanted glasses. My dad is an optician at a place called Staten Eye Land in Staten Island and he makes my mom glasses all the time. Damn my 20/20 vision!

That is so funny. I got my currently glasses two years ago and this past week have been shopping for new frames. Not for fashion, though. I need to flexible titanium ones because I am tired of being injured when Baby knocks my glasses into my face. I didn't know you could buy frames online!

I wear contacts sometimes, but 99% of the time---glasses. And no, I cannot see at all without them!
