Wednesday Happies

Happy Wednesday! Congrats on making it halfway through the week. Only 2 more days until the weekend and payday...surely that would make anyone smile!

First of all, I'm so excited because I achieved a personal goal I set for myself on May 7, the day I bought my new bike, and that was to ride 100 miles the first week. The great thing is that C also has a road bike so we are able to do longer rides on the weekends together. I conquered my first ride with "hills" although they were more like mountains....pretty pumped about that!

Last week, Coastal Contacts was giving away free glasses to the first 10,000 new customers to order. I was a little skeptical because hello, that's an awesome deal. I got on their website, found a pair of glasses I liked, and placed my order. Using the coupon code, I only had to pay $16 (in shipping and handling fees) for a $100+ pair of Nicole Miller frames. Coastal Contacts gave me an estimated ship date of May 26. But they arrived on Monday, May 16! I love love love them. It's very hard to pick out a pair of frames online, but luckily they worked out (if they hadn't, CC has a great exchange policy)!

If you are looking to order a pair of glasses, I can send you a referral e-mail that will include a code for a discount off of your first order. Let me know if you'd like it!

These are the glasses I chose:

And here is me in them:

(Sorry for the dorky self-portrait,
just pay attention to the glasses!)

ETA: Coastal Contacts is doing another free glasses promotion, starting today at 12 pm EDT. Visit their facebook page, like them, and click on the FREE GLASSES tab to get the coupon code. I can't stress enough how happy I am with the quality, service, and price of my new glasses and CC!

Other things making me happy this week:

two buck chuck

enough said.

the nba playoffs

did you see the AMAZING one-handed dunk (off of a rebound!!)
by Taj Gibson in the last seconds of the 4th on Sunday?

season finales

sad to see my favorite shows go for the summer,
but can't wait to see what happens next season.

So even though it's raining outside, I'd say my mood is sunny! What is making you happy today?

Wonderful bike and your bike riding goals too! That is awesome that you both are able to ride together. And wow I love that glasses deal and the ones that you chose. So...seriously? All it cost was shipping for ANY pair? I have a very very strong Rx, so wonder if that makes a difference?
We look forward to watching Hawaii 5-O....Of course, they always have a "cliffhanger"!

Blessings & Aloha!
Thanks for stopping by! That is really neat about your dad and the 101st :o) My hubby and son both have tats...I think tats are amazing pieces of art, but am too much of a wimp to ever have one myself :o)

100 miles is awesome and that’s so great that you’re saving money on gas by riding the bike to and from work. I definitely think you did the right thing by getting the bike!

That’s such a great deal on the glasses and they look so cute on you :)

I wish I could get some two buck chuck around here!
