This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Help Me Decide On A Style Of Glasses

As you all know, my glasses broke. I have a prescription for a new pair, but I can not decide! I tried on several. I look in the mirror and I think "nope" "nope" "maybe" "NOOOOPEEE"

I've also looked online at Zenni Optical and a couple other places. Someone suggested to me to try ClearlyContacts.ca because they have a "virtual mirror" which basically you upload a photo of yourself and then "try on" glasses.

So, while they do not have as many options as Zenni Optical, I tried on a few basic shapes which seem to be the most common shapes. I probably won't actually buy from ClearlyContacts, but the styles/shape are available everywhere.

I was unable to upload the photos so I just snapped a shot of my computer screen with my camera, so I apologize in advance for the poor quality of the photos. Please give me your opinion as to which shape looks best on me.

It seems that rectangle glasses are the most available shape, and I don't know, I think my face is too big to wear rectangle glasses...???

What do YOU think?? (and please ignore the bushy eyebrows and messy hair)

I love number 2!!

Lana@The Kids Did WHAT?! said...

Hmm.. For me, I'd say it's a toss up between the first pair and the second pair. I am leaning a little more to the second, only because i personally would choose the rounder frames for myself. I really like them both though.

April said...

This is a toughy, but I'm going with #2, also!

Kristina P. said...

I really like the first pair. I think they suit your face!

Vickie said...

I like the 2nd and the third one. The rounder versions are a better fit:)

Emalee said...

I like one and two!!

Why Do We Even Have That Lever? said...

Again, it's pair number 1 or 4. I think the rectangle shape complements and defines your face, and your face is not too big! You may not look great with a sharp rectangle shape, but I think that the round ones make your face look more round, instead of oval.

I am also all for change and you shouldn't get the same pair you got last time. heh.

Are you sure you want ME looking at them with you? I'm gonna end up suggesting something radicle like pink with purple highlights! ha ha! (Ok, i won't, but they'll be different for sure!)

sandy said...

I like number 1!

Teri said...

I like the first and last pairs -I think the other two are a bit too narrow-set for your face :)

Rocksee said...

I like the 1st one especially!

Jacquelyn, Trevor's Mama said...

Hate to confuse you more, lol, but I like #4.

Let us know what you choose!

Monica said...

I'm all for number 2, too! I think they suit you really well :)

B said...

Just found your blog. From one bereaved mother to another I say hello. Your baby girl died the year after mine did, also in July. I'm glad you are looking for the good in things, it isn't always easy.

For what it's worth I think rectangle frames look good on your face. I like the first pair.

Laurie in Ca. said...

I definitely love #2. They do the best job of framing your pretty eyes:) Looks like I am not the only one who thinks so:) Love you girl.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

Shea said...

I like #1 and then #4. Getting new frames is always fun.

Jessi said...

I love #1 and #4, and in the interest of full disclosure...my glasses look just like #1 so I am be biased. I think I like the square frames with your oval face :)

Michelle said...

I vote number 1.

Yaya said...

They're all cute! But after studying them...I like #2 the best!

Caitlin said...

I vote for one or two! They all look nice though! What a cool feature on that website!

Ali said...

I am thinking pair #1 Good luck!

pam said...

I like the last one! Which one do you like?

What a fun idea this was.

Furious Mom said...

I like number one...it looks great on your face.

Regarding your comment on my post:

I agree they are all very important to me! I don't really consider anything I do unimportant.
I cherish all things in my life. Thats why I didn't tag anyone...unimportant is not a good way to look at anything in life! :)

lisaschaos said...

I like them! They all look very similar - are they different?

lisaschaos said...

Ok, just subtle differences - I like 2!

Joc(e) said...

#1 is my favorite on you :-)

Liz said...

I think #2 is too "normal" I really like #4, I think they fit your face well. It gives you and artsy edge. #1 is my second choice.

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

My favorite... #2. What a cool site!

SWIRL said...

I like 2 or 3... since you asked.
