So these are my first successful experience with buying online glasses... You may not consider it a success if you have a thing against orange/white glasses with swirls on the arms... and if so you are just wrong! I love em... Including shipping they cost me 14 dollars! Including the prescription lenses! next time i'll for sure put the anti-glare coating... but I figured i'd just do cheap n easy to see if they were gonna be real crappy quality.
Some hints if you're thinkin bout buying online:
1.ZenniOptical seems to have the best customer satisfaction. Just make sure your prescription is correct (the 1st time i ordered one of the -'s got left off a # and so it was all funky. Not their fault... it was mine).
2.Also make sure you get your pupillary distance from the optometrist if they didn't write it on your prescription. (only takes a sec and they should do it for free. DONT guess.)
3.Check the size of frames you are buying. Most glasses put the size on the arm of the glasses so you can just check yours... if it's rubbed off, just go try on some frames at Wallyworld or wherever and see how big/small of frames you need. (made this mistake with the 1st pair also... i didn't look at the size and they were WAAAY too wide for my head.)
That's it! It's really simple but doing the above saves you from the learning curve. I just bought an expensive pair of glasses at Costco the same day I bought my cheapo ones online... the online ones came sooner.. and i'll probably like em more!

sooo... we are having a push to get the girls to read the scriptures more... finding ways to remember to read them each day... yaddayadda. One of our cute little girls on Sunday told us how she puts her scriptures under her pillow so if she forgets... her head it's em and tHEN she remembers... anyhew so I ended up making them these pillows with pockets to give em... we used em at mutual and played scripture taboo... whoever gets it first got 1st pick of pillowcase... Ended up being pretty fun.
They are pretty easy to make so it'd also be great for a activity if ya ever need one... (turns out making them all yourself takes a while!! especially when you gotta make 17 of em! ;)

I ENDED UP POSTING EM ON FACEBOOK CUZ I THINK MOST OF YOU ARE ON THE FACE THAT MIGHT WANT EM... THEY ARE JUST IN A ALBUM IN MY PICTURES... ;)
So this is mostly for the girls... I know alot of you mentioned you were in YW... I made these a while back... we made em into posters... figured I'd post em on here in case anyone wants to use em... I have all of em but couldn't post all em at once so I just did 4 on here... If they don't copy well off the blog, just let me know and I can email all of em to you... they are in jpeg format
I've never been so excited about Bailee Poop in my life! Let me explain...
So... the little pup I wrote about before is out of our lives :( Turns out the lady that we got it from was NOT a very good foster family... THe pup had parvo... and even though Bailee was supposedly up on her shots she managed to get it too!! It was a VERY traumatic experience... we LOVE our little baileegirl. Luckily we caught it early enough and Bailee is bigger so she had a better chance of survival! But it was still scary... and expensive! There's no guarantee of survival with the treatments... We were able to choose outpatient treatment so it made it a little better...
So i've been serving babyfood, pedialite, lamb, chicken, hamburger, cottage cheese, yogurt, scrambled eggs for a week... IN case you don't know much about Parvo its a disease that attacks their intestinal tract... they can't eat and throw up alot and get naasty diahrea... Puppies have like a 80/90% fatality rate. Bailee's over a year old and wieghs over 40 lbs so the odds were better... I've been montoring her 24/7... checkin her bowel movements and etc... anyways she hasn't thrown up in almost 5 days and her stinkies and getting more solid... and she's eating tonns of food and just wants to play ALL the time... so we are officially declaring VICTORY over PARVO! ;) I wish it on NO ONE. It's such a sad, sad thing. When you adopt make sure you have all the information from the agency and make sure it's VALID so you can turn them in if they sell you a dog that is infected. Our little guy had it when we bought him... They are legally supposed to check before they sell you one. I've turned em in to eerywhere I can find... hopefully they won't allow any more pups in that lady's house... Parvo's a VERY contagious disease (canine-specific) and lives for months, sometimes YEARS untreated. ANyhew... lots of information so i'll quit!
OH YEA... YOU CAN'T SEE IT... BUT HER SHIRT SAYS "ONLY CHILD..." SHE GETS HER WAY AGAIN CUZ WE WON'T BE ADOPTING ANOTHER PUP FOR AT LEAST 6-7 MONTHS (UNLESS WE MOVE;)
