Sunglasses and Me

I've never had much luck with sunglasses, so I've never really invested much in them. I've decided now that I'm a big girl, I deserve a nice pair to protect my aging eyes.

My husband bought me a pair of Maui Jim's and they are OK, but I'm not in love, so I'm selling them on eBay (they are currently in the midst of a bidding war so I'm getting good money for them- yeah!) and buying these. Aren't they pretty? I'm wondering if I should get the brown ones or the grey ones? What do you guys think? (these are the brown, but you can see the grey here)

Now if I can just trust myself not to loose them, drop them, scratch them, leave them in a store....Does anyone offer sunglasses insurance? I mean, I have it for my cell phone.

  1. Haha, I am just like you. I ALWAYS lose my sunglasses. My Hubby keeps bugging me to get a nice pair...but I know they'll end up broken or lost..so I get mine at TJMAXX!

  2. I am loving the gunmetal pair, these might could tide me over till I save enough for the Chanel sunglasses of my dreams.

  3. I would LOVE a pair of designer sunglasses but I'm a bit stuck with prescription glasses. For now, my Vera Wang's are good to go!

  4. wow, those are gorgeous! But since I lose, scratch, and break mine on a weekly basis, I'd better stick with Walmart/Target specials!

  5. I always get scratches on mine. So, I've decided not to spend too much on them and to carry them in a soft pouch in my purse. I think Nordtrom Rack has a nice selection if you have one near you.

  6. OH they sure are good looking! Love the fact they combine the tortoise, metal and oversized frame without being too bulky. Great find pretty lady!

  7. Oh - I like these! I was like that too, until I got a nice Kate Spade pair. I've had them for a few years and so far they've lasted. They came with a hard case, which I think has kept them protected. And now, I'm just careful - they always go in the case, instead of just thrown in my bag! Makes a big difference.

  8. I love those! I just got a pair of Ray Bans and I am pretty anal about keeping them scratch free! We'll see!

  9. You are way ahead of me. Forgot my readers when I went shopping and had to buy a $7( the cheapest they had) pair in order to see what is was doing! xo A

  10. I'm too irresponsible for "Big Girl Sunglasses." I'll stick to Target or TJ Maxx for mine, however, I had to chime in and say I like the grey. Very pretty!

  11. Oh wow...those are pretty! I confess that I don't spend over $16.99 at Target. If they are $18, that is too high rollin' for me and my clumsiness.

  12. I'm with you - after losing 3 pairs of expensive sunglasses when I was younger, I took a hiatus from big girl glasses and only bought cheapies for years. I reinvested in some real ones last Fall and so far, I'm still the proud owner. I vote brown- those are pretty!

  13. Those are a friday favorite!
    I'd go brown... with one of those neck chains that librarians wear.

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
