#WEverb12: GROW


12. toss [GROW]: 2012 was the last time for ________________

I finally, finally, finally went through all the clothes still loitering in my old bedroom at the parents’ house this summer.  There was stuff in there from way back in high school.  Man, I used to shop a lot!  I remember when I worked at Chick-fil-a and I did actually spend most of my money on clothes from Forever 21 and Delias and all those silly mall stores.  It was funny to reminisce about that with Zach because he’s never seen that side of me.  I’ve been shopping at thrift stores and penny-pinching for travel or bigger things since we’ve been together.

I was definitely more fashionable back then, but the importance of if has faded to me, rightfully.  Nowadays I find thrifting more enjoyable anyway because I can find things no one else has!

Needless to say, Ohio Thrift got a huge donation of early-2000s-era fashion after I cleaned out the old closet!

I Can See!


I recently received a Home-Try-On kit from the awesome eyewear company Warby Parker.  They’re a young, hip, new online glasses retailer doing some really innovative things.  They actually give away a pair of glasses for every pair you buy.  And they’ll send you 5 pairs to try on at home for 5 days.  After receiving my 5 pairs, I think I know which ones I like best, but I thought I’d throw it out there to the blogosphere too.  So away we go with some silly Photobooth pics to show you my options!

#1 "Sibley"

#2 "Nedwin"

#3 "Langston"

#4 "Thompson"

#5 "Pierce" Now we're getting silly.

And a bonus goofball shot. Fishy kisses in a fishtank.

So, which pair should I get?  I can only afford one, if that!  Cast your vote in the comments!
