Zany Zenni

There once was a girl named Ann.
She wanted new glasses, man.
When told by a friend
that this wasn't the end,
she looked up with glee in her eyes.

When told of this site,
She had such a fright,
jumped up and ordered some pairs.

The price looked right
the frames so bright
Add one or two to the cart.

Why would you wait?
Before it's too late
And pick up a pair or two (or more?!)

Look, I'm not the most talented poet, but you get the idea. I ordered the above pair in the tortoise for...$8...add a couple bucks for anti-reflective lenses, insert prescription, and they're on the way! For two pairs, WITH prescription, my total was ~$35...hello!!! That's a huge deal!!! If you're in need of new glasses, this is the place to go. Thanks Clare for the recommendation :) Head on over to Zenni Optical...

Did you just freak out the moment you saw these?!?!

I sure did.


Even Renoir is tired today.
Side note: today is hump day. For that I am thankful. I am also already looking forward to Grace coming in town with her hub and celebrating Jen's birthday, margarita in hand on Saturday. Weekend, where are you??

How Tuesday: How to get ready in under an hour

So, we all struggle with this. Getting out of bed in the morning, stumbling to the shower, fighting with your hair, and destroying your closet. This morning I was thinking about the steps I unconsciously take to get through my morning routine as drama-free as possible.

1. Prepare your meals the night before. I like to cook something on Sunday that will be good for the whole week. I also keep oatmeal at work and green tea.
2. Don't oversleep. Now I'm a snooze-two-or-three-times-a-morning-person, so I allow myself more time to actually make it out of the bed.
3. Get your butt in the shower. That always wakes me up.
4. While in the shower-mentally pick out an outfit to wear. If you can't figure out the whole outfit, at least think "I want to wear boots" or "how about that green cardigan". It's a start.
5. Dry off, plug in hair dryer and straightener (or whatever applies), put a towel around your hair.
6. Make bed while hair dries a bit. At this point I also like to turn on the news :)
7. Put on part of your make up (I usually save eye make up for after I've dried my I don't melt my mascara)
8. Fix hair
9. Finish make up
10. Put on clothes
11. Grab lunch
12. Out the door!

How long did that take you? I think this morning it took me 45 minutes because I had to dry and straighten my uber thick hair. Some mornings I use Psssst to save time and skip hair.

Hey soul sister ain't that mister mister on the radio stereo
The way you move ain't fair you know
Hey soul sister I don't want to miss a single thing you do
Heeey Heeeeey heeeey...

Started the morning off with 6:15 yoga and now my favorite oatmeal. Determined to make it a great day.
