I can see clearly now.....

I gave in and went to the eye doctor. It has been about 7 years and my eyes were starting to really bother me. It wasn't so much that I couldn't see things but that my eyes were tired and watery all the time. It turns out that I am farsighted. I can see things just fine far away but the closer they get the harder my eyes have to work to keep them in focus. So yesterday I picked up my very first pair of glasses. They are to wear while reading or on the computer but he said (as he winked) that if I accidentally left them on all the time that it would be okay. But he would vouch for me if anyone asked about "needing" them all the time. I'm just stunned with how much of a difference they make already. So, without further ado...drum roll please......here I am ...with new and improved eyes. It's my best schoolteacher look...what do you think..be kind (no really, lie if you have to)

That is a hilarious lip pursed face!! I think you look GREAT in glasses! Makes me want to go get a pair of my own. ;0 I need them, but I'm postponing the inevitable!

And Kim - you have perfect skin too! What are you talking about?? :)

Kate said...

Those glasses are PERFECT for you, girl! :) You look great . . . and I LOVE the "schoolteacher" look . . . might be a little more convincing if your eyes didn't give away that you're about to laugh! ;)

You guys are too kind..thank you!

And Kim, it was just good lighting..I promise.

Yvonne said...

I love the glasses. You look great.

I have to agree with Kim--you do have great skin. Wow.

Nancy Face said...

Wow, you picked out the cutest frames! You look so good in them! :)

I am nearsighted and have glasses with cute frames, too...but I always forget to put them on, and I end up squinting at people across the room. They probably think I'm grimacing at them.

Melissa said...

I love them! No lies here - the frames are fabulous! It's about time for me to give in and get glasses... sigh. I don't want to... I don't look nearly as cute as you do in glasses :)

Carrie said...

I love the glasses..and the stern teacher look. I don't think I've ever seen you not smiling before.

Very Very cute.
I'm finally wearing my glasses full time, as I tried the "vain" thing... taking them off when I didn't need to read, see people across the room, drive or, well, ...see.... and decided that it's easier to just wear them.
I hate how I look in them, but I love how I see in them.
*sigh*

I think you picked out some great glasses. Styles are so much more forgiving than they used to be. Though I WAS very hip with my room-darkening ones back in the 80s....

so grateful to be Mormon! said...

Those are very flattering frames, especially with your cute hair! Isn't it like a whole new world when you can suddenly see?!
