Spectacular

Eyeball update: If you’ve been reading along for a while, you know that I was told to stop wearing my contact lenses about 6 weeks ago since they were causing irritation and gooeyness in my eyes. I quickly scheduled a consultation for Lasik laser correction, but ended up told that I have large pupils and am therefore not an ideal candidate. No Stairway! Denied!

When the doc told me that my pupils are abnormally large, I almost said, “The better to see you with, my dear!” but then realized, well, no, not really. At all.

So all this time I’ve been stuck in glasses that haven’t gotten updated lenses in over three years. I’ve been squinting more than Mr. Magoo and Renee Zellweger combined. I needed new specs in a big way, and I finally got them this week. Allow me to model for you briefly.

Here I am doing my best Stephen Colbert face:

And my best sexy face:

Actually, droopy right eye = not as sexy. Try again.

009

Better?

010

Yeah, I don’t think so either.

At any rate, the new glasses are comfy and fit my big dome even better than my last pair. Calvin Klein’s my boy.

In other news, Galaxy Granola launched their Fruit Not Fat website today. I also got some samples this week—woohoo!

As you might have guessed, Galaxy Granola uses fruit, not fat, to up the flavor without upping the calories of their granola. I’ll admit to being skeptical when I was first contacted about trying this cereal. I’m not one to eschew fat! So long as it’s “good fat,” that is.

This stuff’s really tasty, though, and the ingredient list is short.

Today I actually began AND ended my day with the Not Sweet Vanilla granola. At breakfast, I topped some applesauce with granola to go with a big shake…

002

And I had a little bowl straight up with rice milk tonight for dessert.

021

It may sound cheesy, but I’m a convert! I wasn’t optimistic that I’d want to review this product up in here, but how that I’ve tasted it I know that my samples won’t go to waste. I may or may not have a penchant for playing with my cereal, anyway…

you look so chic with glasses dear!!! I love it!
just for your info: I have a friend who uses a special contact lens at night when sleep that correct something of the eyes. And then during the day he doesn't have to use any kind of lens and sees everything perfectly. I just knew about it. ask your doctor, maybe it works for you.

I'm just reading about your glasses/contacts but am just jumping in...I was having major problems with my contacts all of a sudden and realized eventually that my contact solution had been recalled. Check around and see if that could be it
