I haven’t been a glasses wearer for my whole life, so in the short period of time after having to get glasses and then getting contacts, I wore some super cute, but reasonably heavy, frames all day every day. I never got used to them resting on my nose and found myself taking my glasses off periodically to give myself a break.

After getting contacts, the old glasses weren’t an issue since I only wore them for a few hours a week. So when the right lens ended up scratched, I had an eye exam scheduled and Firmoo offered me a pair of glasses to review… and shared their newest styles with me, it was perfect timing.

A Weekend Wrap Up and New Shades

A weekend wrap-up on Wednesday? You bet!

I would have posted this yesterday but d-blog check prompted me to write about diabetes stuff.

If you follow me on Twitter you probably saw that I have a brand new niece as of last night. As of now, I have three nieces and one nephew. But soon enough, I’ll have a second nephew! He’s still cooking though and won’t be here until the fall. I love being an aunt.

I put on my spiffy shades and left work early (yay summer Fridays!) to find my in-laws waiting for me at my house (this was planned in case you were concerned).

We had a nice visit with them and appreciated that they came to see us since they were in Cleveland anyway.
