I admit it...I'm an earring virgin!

As most of you know by now, I got my ears pierced three weeks ago as a celebration for my 25th birthday. Word got out about it, and the reaction I got most was, "Wait, you didn't have pierced ears before?!" Nope. But I do now! It only took me a couple extra decades to get on the train that every other girl got on when she was six or eight...ok, maybe even twelve. No wait...I know a few people who didn't have theirs done until their twenties. I don't feel too bad, then. :)

Growing up, my dad didn't want us to get earrings; I guess he didn't really see the point. He finally gave into my sister, Laura, I think around her 16th birthday or so. By the time I was 16, I could have cared less about earrings and didn't really think they'd look good on me. So I never did anything about it. I guess what really pushed me to do it now is the fact that I'm trying to accessorize more...and this opens whole new avenues.

I'm getting excited to wear different earrings. A couple of my friends and family members gave me a few different pairs for my birthday, so I want to try them out! Only another week until I can take these "training studs" out. What, am I five years old and learning to ride a bike? I have dealt with minor infections in both lobes, but nothing too bad. Once I got past the initial tenderness of the whole experience, everything has been great...

And so, here I am in the earring world. It's kind of funny because I was expecting everyone to notice and fawn, but I realize that if people didn't know if I had earrings before or not, they're probably not going to be making a big deal out of them now. But I've also realized that I now notice women's earrings much more now...and I always think that now I've finally joined the ranks and can be cool like them.

Yeah! I love to get little cheapies like at Charlotte Russe and places like that cause then you can afford to have a ton of fun different ones. And don't worry I still have friends that don't have their ears pierced.

That's really funny! I recently learned to make earrings and although I don't do it often, it's great because I can make earrings to go with any outfit! Hooray! Congrats on your new additions!
