Mine Eyes

I gave in. I had to. I'd resisted far too long for no reason other than what I guess is vanity.

The last straw landed softly on a recent weekend. I spent the better part of a Saturday curled up on the couch, a fire in the fireplace and college football on the TV. In my hands was a book I'd been meaning to read for months. Reading is fundamental, dontcha know.

So there I curled, reading. Or trying to.

I'm stubborn yes, but an eventual realist.
Now look at me.




It seems for vanity and middle age to peacefully co-exist, one must make concessions.

At least the book did not disappoint.
Five stars!

Suzanne,

You are going to find that some people will find the glasses to be sexy.

I'll bet Wendy does!

And happy birthday, belated, my friend!

Gina said...

Yup, Hubba-hubba likes me with glasses as well. It's that whole sexy librarian thing. Just put your hair up in a bun and you will be irresistible.

Eyes said...

You so cute!!

I hope your spirits are lifted some :)

tiff said...

Love the glasses!

Yep - if I didn't have one really nearsighted eye, I'd be sportin' the reading glasses too, only not as gorgeously as you do.

weese said...

yeah...librarians are sexy.

I have several pairs of these now, in assorted styles colors and locations.

Elizabeth said...

I resisted too. Then, I gave in. Seeing is better than not every day.

Well done.

Excellent look for you, absolutely hummy (hot & yummy):)

scout said...

What may seem to you a concession to age will seem to the rest of the world an uptick in I.Q. Work it, girlfriend.

WenWhit said...

I so find the librarian look hot, babe. Now we need to tweak that topknot into a conservative bun. ;p

agoodlistener said...

Claim they're a fashion accessory--now you can have the latest designer frames. Definitely boost your coolness ratio. ...Well, no, I'm not implying that your ratio is not what it should be...oh nevermind. I'd go out with you.

WenWhit said...

All RIGHT, you bitches (and man-bitches), Suzanne is MINE. All mine. And I don't share. Go find some other sexy, irresistible, cute, gorgeous, hummy, do-able girlfriend to lust.

Heh. Ain't she somethin'?

Mel said...

uBut what was the book?

Man-bitch?

Were you talkin' to me?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

SassyFemme said...

Glasses give one a certain air of brainyness and mystery... I like them!

Jennifer said...

They look great on you.

My eyes are my life, youth and vigor, perimenopause and grumptitude, all at once. Ergo, the reading glasses ARE my vanity.

KMae said...

Very sophisticated.
And cool!

Trop said...

Nice. I think a woman in glasses is HOT.

C said...

At least they're cute glasses : )
Maybe I'll post of pic of me in mine sometime... : )
