What can $100 do for you?

I had a recent makeover of sorts.  For me it was a real game-changer.  I got my hair cut...the same way I always do, then the next week, I had an eye exam.  My hubby got me contact lenses again after a five year-baby stage hiatus. (If your eyes freak out during pregnancy, you'll know why I didn't bother for a while.) 

Then the next day, I looked in the mirror and had a startling recollection...I have a really interesting eye color.  Is that completely pathetic, or what?  I had forgotten all about one of my most unique and attractive features!

To make a long story short, that $100 made me mentally go from this...

(No, I don't usually have an axe handy when watching the children)
To this...

Yes, that is a chocolate cake! 
In other words, it got things back to where they should be.  


  1. What a great post. I love it. It's amazing what a pair of beautiful eyes will do. Yours are a really pretty color! And, you have such a funny way of saying things. By the way, I'm really glad to know that you don't carry around a hatchet when caring for the children. That could be dangerous!!!! (Ha, ha)

  2. Do you now walk around the house singing, "I feel pretty. Oh, so pretty. I feel pretty, and witty and joyous!"

    I am going to imagine you that way. That would be so much fun. How would I know???? I'm not telling . . . but, take my word for it. Try it.

  3. Yeah, that sounds totally worth it to me :)
