Updating Glasses

November 29th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in headlines

I think it’s about time for me to go back to the optometrist. I haven’t been since the March before our wedding, in 2007. It’s time for another check-up, and probably check up on my prescription. While I love my current glasses, it gives me a thrill like no other to shop for new ones every so often. However, because prescription eyeglasses can be so expensive, I’ve been discouraged to get new ones until my old pairs disintegrate at the mere touch of a finger. Heh. But with Optical 4 Less, I found out that many glasses are only $15 online!! I would never have to go into another store again! Who can afford to buy quality $200 glasses when we’re doing so poorly in our economic woes, right? For $15, almost anyone can afford to have a different pair everyday of the week. However, since I’m a creature of habit, I probably would still only have one pair to wear all the time. I need them like I need water — practically blind without my glasses. Heh. I’m surfing through this site now and there are so many to choose from. I may give this a shot after I get my prescription updated! I can’t wait to see which pair I choose. It’s always exciting getting used to new glasses. It’s like a new hairstyle or something. I can’t wait!

Spending Time With Her

November 29th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in gratitude

Ah the weekend is here again, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s awesome being able to spend all this time with our lovely little girl. Yesterday, for the first time EVER, I was able to take Lily Bean somewhere by myself. Yes, I know that sounds weird, since I’m the Mama, but Dave, the Daddy, has been so protective because he could (since he’s on parental leave for a year) since Lily’s been born. Granted, I only took her to the doctor’s, but it was such a sense of pride and awesomeness being able to take her on my own and just be with her, just the two of us. It was so great to feel. We were only gone for about an hour, but still! I take what I can get. Heh.

When sisser gets here next month, for Christmas, we’re going to take her everywhere with us! :D Yay!

Eliro

November 28th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in headlines

I’ve been looking for an awesome watch — preferably a eliro watch from The Watchery, or a Movado one. They’re so stylish and cute, I love them! Oddly, ever since getting pregnant with a baby girl, I’ve been more and more gravitated towards the color pink. That’s odd because I’ve always been into the “earthy” colors, like browns and greens. However, after looking through some of these watches, I am really veering towards the cute pink ones, like this one in the picture I linked! It’s a lovely Omega Deville woman’s watch, and it is just so chic and cute. Not to mention very pink. Heh. One day, I shall be able to afford something like this. While it’s name brand, it’s also very durable and hardy. I tend to use products over and over again until they disintegrate into my hands, so something long-lasting yet expensive is definitely right for me. I like something that will last a lifetime because I really *use* my watches. I wear them everywhere, so it’s hard for me to find a really durable watch. It looks like this one would be quite durable and last me a lifetime. Woo!

Maintenance

November 28th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in being

Sometimes I feel like I have so many websites, I can hardly keep up with all of them. I have 4 websites. Can you believe it? Mindmirror was my first and it will forever be my baby and brainchild. Lily Bean’s website will also be one that will stay forever, I imagine, since it’s hers and maybe one day she will want to do something with it when she’s all grown up and stuff. Having four websites can be difficult to maintain, especially when new softwares keep coming out, and old ones keep needing updates. Sometimes I need to figure out the conversion rate optimization for all the websites, so that they run on maximum force. And stuff.

Okay I think I need to go eat. I’m losing my mind and I don’t know what I’m talking about anymore. Heh.

The Bright Side

November 26th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in gratitude, reflection

You know what I’ve realized during this time of being horribly sick? I realize that with all this coughing, it’s a great fat burner system. My abs have never felt stronger and my tummy is actually “sore” from all the coughing. You know, the “I just did 300 sit ups” type of soreness. Strange. I skipped yoga last weekend because I was too sick to function outside of the house, so I missed my weekly workout routine. The good news is that with all this coughing and trying to hack up the phlegm (yes I know, I’m so sexy with all this sweet talk), I feel like I still got my good workout in! Go figure.

I guess it’s good to look on the bright side of things. Heh.

Being Healthy

November 22nd, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in headlines

There are so many ways to lose weight these days. In our society, where a huge percentage of us is overweight and obese, it’s important for us to finally look after our health. The key to happiness is not thinness, or beauty, but good health. With it comes beauty. When you’re so much overweight, you don’t feel healthy because you can’t do everything you may want to do. Likewise, when you’re underweight, it’s not good either because you may not have enough energy to be able to do everything you want to do. When you’re healthy, you’re right in the middle. Now, for those of you who need to lose a bit of weight, in order to both feel good and look good (because when you’re happy, you automatically look good to everyone, including yourself), there’s fenphedra. Along with exercise and eating well, taking fenphedra can be the key way to losing weight for you. The product has many advantages, and it is known to help a lot of people. Do your research, and if this is the right way for you to lose weight, I say go for it!

How Time Grows

Well, the weekend is here, and the husband and I are both sick. However, Lily Bean is still holding on strong and she hasn’t caught out cold. It’s a miracle, as we’ve both been sick since Monday. Knock on wood, but I think we have a super baby on our hands. Heh.

Tomorrow we have an awesome birthday party for our niece, Chelsea. She is turning 9 years old. Wow. I remember when I first met her and she was just a little itty bitty 2-year-old. She just stared and stared and stared at me, like I was the strangest thing since sliced cheese. And from there, we were practically inseparable. My little golden girl, she is. I’ve always held a special place for her in my heart. We see her for a little bit about once a week, when Nana brings her to visit us. She’s very interested in Lily Bean, which I like to see. Lily Bean will see her cousin Chelsea as this “cool big teenager” in just a few years. It’s so strange to think of that, especially when I can still see Chelsea in my mind’s eye as this chubby little baby. How odd.

It will be good to see the family again.
