Really???

I was busy doing housework yesterday and the news was on. I was half-way listening to it because all of this economic crisis talk is frankly freaking me out a little. I did stop what I was doing for a minute to listen to a story about Sarah Palin's glasses. Evidently, her rimless glasses are causing quite a stir. The man/company that makes her glasses received something like 9,000 orders in ten days! She is beautiful in her glasses, and I can see why people would want them. However, I don't think her bun will catch on quite as fast.

I wear contacts all the time and rarely wear my glasses. If I am not wearing my contacts, I can't even read the alarm clock! Derek, on the other hand, is "Eagle Eye" as I call him. I just hope Evan and Ella Grace take after him.

You can thank me later for the riveting post! Ha! I just thought this was wild. Have a great day!

How crazy is that!? Her glasses are nice--I think she's really pretty. I rarely wear my glasses (maybe because I've had them since COLLEGE--no 9,000 orders for those being placed today!)--I wear my contacts until 2 seconds before I hop into bed and put them back in first thing in the a.m. Maybe if I had some like S.P.'s, I'd be willing to wear them out of the house! :)

So, you're not going to be sportin' a bun any time soon? ;-)

I had terrible vision before getting LASIK a few years ago...I would recommend it to anyone!

Amanda said...

I love her! She pulls off the glasses look better than most!

Heather said...

I saw that same story- funny! I do think she is a cutie in those glasses!

Audrey said...

I had heard this too! Wild! She wears them well though :)

Laura said...

First of all, I wear contacts, too! Something else we have in common!! I am blind as a bat! I can't read the alarm clock either and it's on my side of the bed!!! I'm too chicken to have the eye surgery. Just something about somebody messing with my eyes.....My man has perfect vision, too! Go figure.

I've heard about Sarah's glasses, but I have also heard that wig sales are up, too, for her do. Can you believe that?

Did you see Tina Fey dub her last Saturday night on SNL?? It. was. HILARIOUS!!!!

Meredith said...

I heard about this on tv not too long ago! I think sometimes glasses can make a good accessory! :) Have a great weekend!

Meagan said...

Lol! Nice post! I have glasses I wear sometimes... mostly just at night when I drive or if I am looking at the computer for a really long time! :-)

Michele said...

Oh come on, try the bun... you know you wanna! ;)

Leigh Ann...I'm so with you on Sarah Palin's bun. She looks SO much like a librarian with her hair up like that. But I do like her glasses!

I just followed a search that brought someone to my blog and found yours. I thought it was funny that we both mentioned that we can't see the alarm clock in a post within a day of each other.

Sarah's glasses are great. I heard Joy from The View on Larry King and she was asking "what's up" with Sarah's glasses and what ever happened to contact lenses. Hmmm. Interesting. (the rest of what she said was all about how this election should be about issues and not about personality and then went on and on about what a great sense of humor Obama has).

This is CRAZY!!! I am a contact wearer but secretly would love to get Lasik :)!

Lauren said...

She is gorgeous, isn't she??

I wore glasses since 3rd grade and then got contacts in 7th grade. I am blind as a bat without them.

I have some glasses I wear at night or when my allergies get too bad...David calls them my "secretary" glasses. I think that's a compliment?
