the sunnies i would do anything stupid for

Today is my husband's birthday, so I'm going to be brief. I am attempting to make this cake before he gets home, and I still need to make a grocery run for an assortment of chocolate candies. He doesn't know he's getting a chocolate heart attack of a cake. 

Do you like my sunnies? I've been moaning about not being able to wear regular sunglasses because I don't wear contacts, but when I saw these oversized, Sanrio-licensed, kitty cat eyes, I definitely had to make them mine. I AM WEAK, yes, yes I know. 

So the funny thing is that I can only wear them if I'm not shopping or driving, which really limits where and when I can tote them around. My solution? Wear my glasses underneath the sunnies until I feel stupid enough to finally just go to the optometrist's and get a contact lens exam. Still not feeling that stupid. 

ps. Follow me on instagram (delightedlaura) to see my cake-making adventures. And other ridiculous adventures, actually. Instajelly?

  1. Those sunglasses are super cute - and I love your cake plan. Have you ever thought about prescription sunglasses as opposed to contacts?

  8. Happy birthday to you hubby! I feel you pain with the sunglasses and prescription ones are so expensive! I was going to get a pair of ray bans made but the lenses were way tooo pricey for me :( Sigh they were really cute too.

    1. I hear you on that! You'd think that with all the people in the world wearing glasses, Rx sunnies would be cheaper, right?

  52. Whoa. That cake is one of the most beautiful works of art I've seen in my life. What a lucky hubby! I know how you feel about sunglasses; I don't wear contacts either so I can't wear them. But when you come across a pair as adorable as those, I suppose it's okay to sacrifice your vision.

    May the force be with you.
