I can see clearly now the rain is gone!

Well I have some very exciting news for those of you who don't already know. I no longer need contacts or glasses... thats right I was brave and had Lasik Surgery. Its funny I would have thought I would have been super nervous. However I got a very different reaction.

I woke up the day of the surgery just so excited I was practically bouncing off the walls... for those of you that see me regularly I generally do bounce off the walls but not when I'm going to have a laser in my eye! :)

Anyway I go in to eye center and I was just chatting away with everyone I came in contact with... Also a very different reaction for me... as most of you know I am a very quiet person. Anyway, then the happy drugs kicked in... and I couldn't even tell a difference other than I was super tired... which made the actual surgery a little difficult. When they went to fix my left eye I kept falling asleep. YIKES! but no worries the lasers have been perfected enough to detect movement.

So by the next day I woke up with 20/20 vision yay! The only thing I have to deal with now is very dry eyes but at least thats just temporary! :)

Confessions of a Shopaholic

I've always been one to say "I hate shopping, I'm a get in get out kind of girl. Why would anyone love to shop, theres way to many people and the prices are so high who can afford this... not to mention have you seen the jeans they make these days... yeah right!" So as you can see Shopping was so not my thing any new clothes I got was because it was either my birthday or christmas and someone else went to the store for me!

Well recently I've realized that I love shopping. I love trying on new clothes. I love the smell. I love the joy in finding something that fits just right! I love the quick pick me up after having a bad day. (It's amazing how getting a new outfit will take away the pain of what ever!) I love how on good days I can shop and find something cute just because and it makes the good day even better! I love taking my time and just looking at all of my options. I love the prospect of finding the outfit that feels like it was made just for you. I love the snug fit of a brand new pair of jeans that make you feel like a million bucks!

Luckily I'm very aware of my finances so I don't charge my credit cards up the wazoo! However I can relate to the Confessions of a shopaholic... it is almost lke the stores speak to you!
