I don't know if you can notice a difference between this picture and most of the other pictures of me that have ever been displayed on my blog -- but I now have my ears pierced.
I got it done -- for the first time ever -- in early December. Six weeks ago tomorrow, to be exact.
I would've been allowed to do it on my 13th birthday (that was the house rule), but I chickened out. And ever since then, the thought has just never really crossed my mind.
Until one day six weeks ago when I made the spontaneous decision while on my way to a nearby shopping mall. I don't know what made me suddenly decide to take the plunge, but before I knew it I was sitting in the ear-piercing chair getting holes put into my ear lobes.
I have been regulary cleaning them and anxiously anticipating the date that I can take them out and replace them with f-u-n earrings.
And no, I'm not that much of a stickler that I would normally wait e-x-a-c-t-l-y the full six weeks -- in fact, I was really tempted to change them when my girlfriends took me out on Saturday night.
BUT...it just so happens that tomorrow -- when my six weeks are officially up -- is also my birthday. So I decided that it would be a special way to celebrate.
Now the only problem is...which earrings do I wear? The ones I picked out for myself, the ones Les bought for me, the ones Joelle picked out for me, OR the ones Malia picked out for me?
Maybe I'll just change them every few hours so I get to experience them all!
