Let Me Introduce You To...

Last Saturday I was painting Jakob-turned-Julie's room and had my trusted little pink Sansa hooked up to speakers so I could have me some music.
Remember the Sansa? Didn't think so.

Anyways, the Sansa and I have had a good couple of years. Ben got it for me for Mother's Day after I'd started running...I may have begged for it. Turns out, I'm quite attached to it.

Back to my story...so I was in the middle of painting and suddenly realized that only one of the two speakers was playing music. I fiddled with the chords and then did what any reasonable woman does when she still has lots of painting to do...I tapped the speaker lightly. Nothing. Banged it on the floor several times. Nothing.

The next resort was to call in the husband before I pushed the speaker to its limit. Still, the speaker would not cooperate.

Fast forward a couple days. I sit down at the computer with my Sansa and headphones and guess what!?! The headphones only work out of one speaker. Huh. Turns out, I'd abused the speaker for no reason...it was actually the Sansa's fault.

I lasted a whole two days before I had to go out and purchase a new one. This time, it's an iPod. Cute little green one. And I heart it already. I used money I'd earned babysitting...which makes me sound like a 15 year old. Big surprise.

Meet little green iPod and the earphones that actually fit in my ears:


Try not to be too impressed with my amazing photography skills.

And while I'm at it...I'd like to introduce you to my new glasses. I normally wear contacts, but it had been a good four years since I've had updated glasses *gasp* so, here they are:


Ignore the hair. It got washed, but that's about it. Frankly, it's lucky to be clean.

Here's a terrible shot of the side, but I had to show you because they follow my little bit ugly rule. See, they're alternating black and brown and the frames are plastic but the bows are metal. Weird-o.



Love 'em so far.


Vanity, vanity all is vanity ;)

  6. Hair and glasses are so cute!!

    I LOVE my iPod -- and I'm not really a big person on electronics, but that is like my constant companion. When I leave the house, you can guarantee three things are in my hand: my phone, my wallet, and my iPod.

  14. Your glasses are cute, and if you only washed your hair, I'd say you can cut your styling time out. Your hair is SO cute!!! Seriously, I love the little swoop of bangs, and flippy-dos at the bottom. Is flippy-do a word? You know what I mean though, right?

  15. I'm lovin that you pulled the Barbie and the Rockers t-shirt out. May pull mine out of Grace's pj pile. Have a good one my dear friend. :-)

  16. OK. I've thought this MANY TIMES while reading your blog, Sarah, but I've never said it for fear of being politically uncorrect. But that picture of you with your sassy hair and kicky glasses is forcing me to speak up.

    You, my friend, are the most stylish small town woman I've ever seen. As you know, I lived in a small town a few years ago, and I never saw anyone even remotely as fashionable as you. You must make people stop and star when you walk down the street (and I mean that in a good way).

    You are very, very beautiful, and I love your sense of style.

  20. I need to know where you got your t-shirt. It's kinda rock star and since that's the whole look I'm after... I need to know. KTHX.

  22. Your glasses and hair are super cute. I just updated my glasses too. Maybe I'll post a photo of them soon. Blessings, Susan

  23. Sarah your hair is the best hair ever. Really you need to stop saying it isn't, you want to know why? Someday God is going to bring back the perm just because you tempt him by saying your hair is terrible. Stop it, I do NOT want to go back to the perm. I mean it. Stop.
    Your hair could NOT look any cuter with or with out your new glasses.

    I was so againest ipods until I got a tunes card for my birthday and didn't want to give it to my hubby. I now want the itouch. So I can SEE all my album covers and flip through them, like a normal geek. Pretty green. For some reason I am drawn to that color this season.
    No for real, no more "My hair is blah..."
    IT IS NOT.

  28. Is that really what your hair looks like when it's just washed and you're not trying?

    Really?

    Cuz, if so, I am waaaaay jealous, and totally in a 15 year-old kinda way. Like seriously.
