My week in a few bullets

  • This week I started wearing contacts.  I thought I was a die-hard glasses-wearer, but it turns out that people don't like nerdy-chic at weddings.  Thus, due to massive amounts of peer pressure from my loving cousins and sister, I picked up my first pair of contacts on Monday afternoon.  It took me twenty minutes to get them out of my eyes that night, but I'm down to about 5 minutes as of Thursday night.  Getting them in is getting easier, too, as long as I take it slowly and use lots of lubrication.  (Snap!)  Anyway, I feel like a real grown-up now, and especially appreciate all of the endearing texts to help get me through this first ridiculously difficult week of no-glasses!  I have such a cute family.
  • Speaking of wedding stuff, this time in two weeks I'll be getting my nails done in anticipation of marrying John Paul.  It can't come soon enough!
  • I finished Friday Night Lights on Thursday, and am really bummed that it's over.  The Taylors became like family to me, and my new mantra in times of difficulty has become, "What would Tami do?"  I got so attached to some of the characters (there is a very special place in my heart for Tim Riggins), and hope they're all doing well in fictional Dillon, TX.  Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose. 
  • Oh my good gracious, I just heard that the follow-up to The Passage will be released on October 16, and I already have my calendar marked.  Squeal!  I can't wait to read this post-apocalyptic thriller!  Read more at EW.


  1. I am proud of you for "leaning into your discomfort" in terms of the contacts. It does get easier and you can still wear your glasses when you're feeling nerdy! xo

  2. I certainly did not mean for you to feel peer pressured into contacts for the wedding! But after seeing you take your glasses off for every photo at your Bachelorette party, it seemed like something to consider! I second Mommi--I'm mostly proud of you for facing your fear of eyeball touching :) (love, haley)
