This and That Thursday, v. 2

Thursday, December 13, 2012

So THIS happened. I have this condition, and I have for a while now, it's called: I'm as blind as an elderly cyclops bat. Staring at a computer all day to edit grammar is hard on these old crusty crusts of mine; I found myself swimming in contact solution only to still feel like my eyes were pooping itty gritty cement turds all day.

So, glasses! It brings me back to THAT horrifying time in my sixth-grade years where blue-rimmed spectacles were my jam. I got these digs from Firmoo, seriously one of the best eyeware sites ever. They're having this amazing deal right now where all first-time buyers get prescription glasses for free! Check it out here, and you too can embrace your inner hipster, Einstein, nerdy, I-should-probably-have-a-cup-of-jo-in-one-hand-and-a-copy-of-Hemingway-in-the-other shades. (Phew, hyphens!)


THIS guy may or may not have taken a solid ten minutes to notice his new four-eyewinkered wife. Pretty stinkin' cute. It used to bother me when he didn't notice things like big ol' brown things on my face (that sounds like poop, doesn't it?), but now I just think it's part of his quirky charm that I love so much. 

Here's one of 12879 failed Christmas card attempts. ("I am the Walrus," anyone?) I don't know, guys. I feel like a Grinch who's taking a dump on holiday cheer cause I'm just not THAT into Christmas cards this season. Our first Christmas together, I was all about it. Remember ours and my father-in-law's awesome pop-up card featuring us? With the move and our inability to take a decent picture, I'm about as motivated as Lindsay Lohan is to clean up her trollish ways. Besides, who wants to go to the post office at this time of year anyway? (Ohhh, she's an angry elf.)

Link up with the lovely Katie and me today!

Katie said...

You look awesome in those specs! I need to get a new pair as well. You talking about your blue rimmed glasses reminds me I had rainbow speckled glasses when I was little. *shudder*

Ashley said...

I'm seriously SO blind, too. I got a pair from Firmoo as well...and I'm pretty sure they're the same pair!

Kate said...

Cute glasses! And I love that you've come to appreciate the fact that he doesn't notice right away. I'm still like "hey you notice anything, like around my face? Maybe around my eyeball area? You know... like the square things maybe?" He usually doesn't... maybe it is cute?

Nicole Gilbert said...

Amy said...

Katie Did What said...

Love your glasses, girlfriend!! And I probably had the exact same blue glasses as you in 6th grade. Oh, the horror.
Also, I looked at your Christmas post from last year. That's it. I'm having a marshmallow gun war this year!

Jena, I've been having the same issue with my eyes, so I've been wearing glasses all week! I feel so out of sorts those first few days even though the prescription is basically the same! Anywho, your glasses look so fun and cute v/s my geeky pair, I'll definitely have to check Firmoo out (thanks!).

Btw: I'm in the same Christmas Card slump...no idea what I'm going to do this year and today is the 13th! *sigh* I should probably get to it now!

I feel like everybody is thinking the same thing as you this year...we have only received TWO cards so far this year! I feel like everybody forgot our address or something haha.

Helene said...

not everyone can pull off glasses that well, you my friend, can.
i have no cards either boo/

Sara said...

I have been wearing glasses lately as well, just for convenience, and by convenience, I mean I am lazy and don't like to take the time to take the contacts out or put them in. You look great in those glasses! :-)

Courtney Carlton said...

Um, I love your glasses. Please don't judge me for buying thick black square frames with clear lenses from Claire's in the mall because I wan't SO BADLY to be part of the glasses gang.

If you decide you want some cards designed, let me know :) I'd be glad to do them for y'all! Totes free. Duh. In the spirit of Christmas and feeling like cards are the best part of it... aside from, of course, the birth of our Savior, the giving and receiving of thoughtful gifts, the holiday decor, the feeling of joy and merriment shared by all, Christmas songs on repeat on the radio, enough food to stuff my face and baby C's for the next full year...

So maybe cards aren't the BEST part. But one of my favorites! :)
