One Last Hey Girl and a New Face Accessory (in which I finally–and ironically–conform)

I was blown away last week by all of the nice comments about my hot husband on my “Hey Girl” post, so let’s consider this a bit of an encore, shall we? But first, let’s preface it with this delightful gif* from last week’s Community episode. Jeff is the ultimate hipster.

*A GIF is a graphical interchange format which is a popular format for image files, with built in data compression (got that from Google). It is pronounced like the peanut butter…there’s even an authoritative website called if you want to argue about it.

Here’s Kenny’s fictitious (or not so fictitious…) response to my newest face accessory.

Hey Girl Hipster Glasses

Trendsetter I am not (though it is very sweet of Kenny to fictitiously say so), but I did get me some hipster glasses.

I got these  from, where your first pair is free. All you have to do is call up your eye doctor and get your prescription, chose your frames, and use the promo code FIRSTPAIRFREE. I did have to pay $13.44 for shipping and handling, but seriously, where else can you get glasses with prescription lenses for under $15 bucks? These are Joseph Marc in the color “tortoise” but are sold out now, but  if you’re in the market for some big ole’ hipster glasses I’d recommend that brand or their Derek Cardigan brand.

Ordering them was easy; now I just have to work up the courage to actually wear these in public. That will be the hard part. 🙂
