How I Got 3 Pair of Glasses for $40

You read that right...3 pair of really cute prescription glasses for $40...though 3 pair for $400 would have been a deal too.

I mentioned getting these specs back in October, my apologies for not providing details sooner!

The hubs is a big Clark Howard fan, so he heard Clark talk about getting his glasses on the cheap.  Turns out they were pretty great quality too.  When the time came last year for a new pair of glasses (my college glasses weren't nearly as trendy as I thought they were circa 2001 they used to be) the hubs pointed me in the direction of Zenni Optical.  I couldn't believe it...$9.95 for frames AND lens!  AMAZING!

All you need is your written prescription so that you order them correctly. I ordered 3 pair, all at a $12.95 price or cheaper.  Shipping was really reasonable and I got my new glasses in 2 weeks.  I was like a kid on Christmas morning waiting for them to arrive on the doorstep!

Here's a few shots of the specs...



And one creepy shot for good measure....

Neglect...Plain and Simple!

Hi!  My name is Brooke and I used to blog here. Then I got a awesome job at this really cool company.  Oh...and spring arrived...and next came summer ....the hubs and I have been busy bees!  So to sum it - up I've neglected my blog!


I promise I haven't been hiding...I've been doing this.....


Vacationing (celebrating our 2nd Anniversary!)...




Rafting the Chattooga River....

going....
going....
GONE!  That's me with the Ronald McDonald red shoe!  

Saving lives...kitten lives!  This is Willy Whitesox....he was found in the shrubs at the entrance of my office when he was just a few weeks old.  I called the hubs to see if I could bring him home and after asking if I was serious he said 'Yes...as long as I'm only responsible for playing with him.  You have to do the rest Brooke!'  And so I agreed.... (I'm such a sucker!)

Spending time in the sun....

So that almost gets us up to speed.  Hope you're having a great summer! 

Praise the Lord the weekend is near!  My weekend, though, will NOT consist of bringing home stray cats, wearing awful red clown shoes, class 5 rapids, but I might just be spending some more time in the sun!
