Help A Sista Out

I've got friends having babies every month until next June! I'm in need of some tips as this is the first child for all of my friends, I'm not a seasoned "Auntie Tine" yet - yes I'm making their kids call me that.

What was the best meal someone brought you or you've made for someone after having a new baby?

I'm trying to steer clear of the boring casserole route (unless you've got a recipe for a casserole that kicks all other casserole's asses!) but am kind of at a loss! Help please! I want to be able to bring something over that they will actually like and eat!

This made me laugh...maybe I should bring wine instead?
and for all the preggers or used to be preggers - one of Dave's friends whose in his ob residency sent him this:

OK now send me your recipes or tips on bringing food to new parents! Love y'all!

Four Eyed Nerd

I've been wanting a new pair of glasses for a while for a few reasons:
1. You wouldn't wear the same earrings everyday, so why would you wear the same glasses?
2. I wanted to particiapte in the super nerdy big glasses look that's super trendy right now
3. I'm lazy and watch a lot of tv in bed and needed some bigger ones that I could still see the tv through when laying down...

So I was very excited when Firmoo contacted me to try out a pair of glasses with my prescription for free! It took me a while to decide which ones I wanted but when I finally did, they were super quick to ship them and I couldn't be more happy with my free pair of nerd glasses!
I loved that they have the option to upload your photo and virtually try on glasses, it made it so much easier to tell how they would look on. After virtually trying on several pairs, I landed on these: Unisex Acetate Full Rim Frame Glasses - in the brown color.

The only stipulation was that I had to take photos of myself wearing them... so without further ado here is my best attempt at "fashion blogger" poses. Please be nice.

And what's great is that Firmoo has a Free for New Buyer program! Which means you can ALL get a pair of glasses with your prescription in them For FREE! What are you waiting for? Go get yourself an extra pair of glasses! And post embarrassing photos of yourself wearing them so I don't feel all alone.
