Seeing Red

If any of you have seen my glasses recently you know I am in dire need of new ones: The protective lens coating has started peeling away, the ear pieces don't match the frames anymore because Chloe broke them a few years ago and they had to be replaced with new ones that didn't quite match, and one of those mismatched ear pieces is currently being held on by a paperclip that I had to cut down because the screw fell out and I couldn't find it anywhere. Embarrassing, I know.

So, I finally got all my vision stuff taken care of. New contacts first (also a major need there) and yesterday I had my appointment to get my new glasses. I wanted them to be fun this time and not stay with the same old black rectangular frames that I've had for the past five years, cool as I thought they were. I was excited to see that the new trend in eyewear seems to be uber funky and colorful.
After trying on orange, purple, green, white, tortoise and green frames I finally went with red, as we all knew I would anyway. They have little purple stripes too and I am SO excited to get them and be done with my sorry specs. Now I can be totally stylin' when I take Chloe to preschool in my sweats.

Yep. Totally stylin' and seeing red.
