I'm looking so old!

I started this post in my head about a week ago, after Stu and I had decided to get contacts. I've never had contacts so I wasn't sure I'd be able to get them. I was going to get new glasses at least. Much to my surprise, they do have contacts that work for me (I have astigmatisms in both eyes!), after a week and a follow up appointment, I'm now cleared for contacts and it's awesome!

I need to warn you though, I don't photograph well (and this is where the comment on the kids always making weird faces on my field trip post), not to say that I'm some drop dead gorgeous woman, but I'm not too bad looking, after seeing these photos I may have to re-evaluate that thought ;). I did take these photos of myself too, so that didn't help ;).

Here is a pic of me with no glasses....

And after, with my really cool sunglasses.

I just look so tired and worn down in these photos. I'm sure the, no style hair doesn't help either.

I do have to brag about the place we purchased these glasses from SunGlasses Only
They were awesome to work with and had a huge variety of sunglasses from "cheap" ($50) to "holy crap, how much?" (the most expensive ones I tried on were $350). I recommend them to everyone. Oh and they had these awesome massage chairs too, that's worth the trip in and of itself ;) (many people came in, sat in the chairs and got a massage and then left, it was funny (free to use the chair) ).

I also want to add that I went to visit my parents for the weekend and got a new haircut. I think it looks great! so I'll try to get L to take a pic of me and I'll update this post later today.

I like the new shades and I'm too chicken to try contacts. I always look goofy when I try to take a pic of myself- I think you did a pretty good job. I want to see the new hair though because I'm thinking about chopping mine and need some ideas.
