OK, so if you've not heard of or witnessed firsthand this whole "Geek Chic"
clusterfuck phenomenon, you are clearly living in a hole. Throngs of people everywhere are rockin' 80's frames like nobody's business, and quite frankly, I'm appalled. Observe...
|Do you REALLY think this looks GOOD?!?!?! I'm not convinced...|
|These frames are soooo "hott."|
But because I love you guys, I dug deep in my scary, dark, possibly spider-infested storage room to find that one box which contained my old picture albums. Ahhhh yes. There were some gems in there for sure.
I present to you FIVE blasts from the
|My apologies to my middle school boyfriend-of-the-week, Jordan R., for posting this choice shot. Can I get a "HEEEEEEYYYYY HOOOOOOO" for Forenza & clear frames though?! I'm not even gonna go there on the asymmetrical, permed, super short 'do.|
|Second shot of the clear frames, just in case you missed their awesomeness in the pic above. You're welcome.|
|These feel so natural, as I basically trained my whole awkward tween-teen years for this very moment!|
(Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Mrs. Pocket! I love you, Elisabeth & Maranda!)
|My REAL "Geek Chic" glasses|
|This was a pair of glasses that the doctor brought as a sample to see if they helped the girls see better. Claire immediately focused on the light on the mirror... and probably how freakin' cute she was, too. Diva!|
|AQUA?! You got me AQUA?!|
|Our tiny, naked librarian, Polly P. (Our new nickname for Lola, a spin-off of both Polly Pocket & Pauly D from Jersey Shore. Clearly she needs a little more of the T & L from "GTL!!!") Scott thinks she looks like a racy superhero here, complete with the Robin-esque "mask." How. RUDE!|
|Getting kisses from Jan, one of our beloved babysitters!|
Here are a few action shots (HA!) of the girls wearing their glasses during therapy...
|Claire giving Donna (AKA Mrs. D) hell... half expected to see that middle finger on her left hand! Pretty sure she was pissed because she had to get up before 11:00 am. HA!|
Also, Claire is rockin' her Larkie Lu Bow! THANKS, GINA!
|Thanks to Michelle (Vision Teacher) & Shelly (OT) for all your hard work with our girlies!|
|OVERSTIMULATED MUCH?! Don't be afraid to tell us how you REALLY feel, Claire.|
|Savin' the drama for her Mama|
|Polly Ann looks like a tiny stalker in this picture. If only we could've gotten a dark-ish lens tint on these bad boys...|
|Lola (possibly pouting!) with Andee, our physical therapist (or physical terrorist, as Donna used to say!)|
We are so grateful to all our therapists, doctors and babysitters who help us optimize our girls' lives... we truly are so blessed with such an amazing "team" of people who care! WE LOVE YOU ALL!
