day 12....lauren's got BLING

lauren has always surprised me with the little things in life. when she was a wee little babe, she never tried to walk, just one day (dec.15,2002) she just up and took off... and like riding a bike, she just one day BAM! started riding her bike...

now she has asked a many time about getting earrings...
momma, i want earrings...
no lauren, not yet.

i wanted to make sure SHE wanted earrings and it was not because of a "friend" has earrings.

so yesterday, after church we are eating lunch and she just looks at me and says,
"Momma, i am ready. I want earrings."
okay lauren, but you know it's gonna hurt like heck....
yes i know, but I want them...can we go right now?

so i look at fred and said, it's time...so we finish lunch, (lauren loves Flan)
and head over to the mall....i am still reminding her it hurts like a wasp sting, but she never back down. so in to ICING'S and she picks out her new body jewelry. then ,
LAUREN ARE YOU READY?????



yes, she was ready... not a tear, she actually laughed a bit when she saw them in the mirror.

she was giddy...and could not wait to go home and show Wayne her newest earrings...because he told her that she was be a little lady and not his JO anymore...well he loved them...and she is still JO...


now as any little girl, she is already asking to go earring shopping...i told after 6 weeks we got a earring date, just me and you...

side note: i don't recall the price to getting your ears pierced back in the 80's. but i know my parents did not pay $40.00!

I paid $60 to get Emy's pierced . . . $30 twice. The first time she was way to young and one came out and we could't get it back in.

But no, I didn't pay $30-40 to get my ears pierced when I was in high school. Seriously, it was like $12. Craziness!

Anyway, they look great! I told Emy she had to wear hers for 6 months before we could get any other earrings. LOL

awww she looks so excited. love the story with the photos Lori. I remember getting mine done too. I did it at a fair. I remember my grandparents paying for it. I believe it was five bucks. But I had those ugly bullet things that looked like frankenstien. LOL

I'm sure it didn't cost that much...because I wouldn't have gotten them pierced. lol! She's adorable!! When you gonna get some camo studs so she can wear them out hunting with her daddy? lol!
