Funny story about these glasses. I carried them around school with me in an ugly blue case and one day they went missing. A few days later I saw another girl in my very small class (66 grads) wearing exactly the same pair, and upon further inspection she had the ugly blue case. She stole my glasses! Being the chicken non-confrontational girl that I was, I told my mom who called her mom. She apologized, I got them back, and she explained that she thought it would make other kids think she was smarter. She was a semi-cool, cute, snobby girl that the boys seemed to like but she WASN'T very smart. Dumb enough to wear someone elses stolen glasses in a school as small as ours.
Anyway when I turned 25 suddenly I realized I couldn't see to drive at night anymore. It was like overnight my vision went bad. I got glasses but I was still to vain to wear them much (except while driving) so I only found one picture of me wearing those. This picture was taken late one New Year's Eve so my eyes probably got tired enough to warrant needing them to see across the room.
A few years ago I started wearing my glasses all the time so I could see people sitting across a desk or table from me. I hated it, but it was a necessary evil. I still, however, was too vain to wear them to formal events so there are very few shots of me in glasses until after the baby was born. I guess then I stopped caring so much. Or I stopped being able to take my glasses off for pictures because there was always a baby in my hands.
Two weeks ago I finally broke down and got contact lenses. My goal was to get them before my cousin's wedding, but as you can see from this picture, that didn't happen. But I did get them before my big conference in D.C., which along with a haircolor change and being 30 lbs. lighter led to lots of people not recognizing me. It is taking some time to get used to the contacts, but I love not wearing glasses anymore!!
