I did it!

I did it! I know I was going to take one of you with me, but I couldn't wait. Randy came home early today from work and I was needing to get out of the house for a little while. I told Randy I was going to do it and he blessed me to go.

Oh, my gosh...can you believe I got my nose pierced? This mother of five that you know with a running schedule that is crazy and has life group in her home every week got her nose pierced? I can't and I was there!

I drove over there with butterflies in my stomach.
I told myself to get out of the car and go inside because I knew if I went in that I would leave with a nose ring.
I went up to the counter and said, "Hi. I would like to get my nose pierced please." You would have thought I was shopping for make up or something.
So, the cool guy calls me over to another place in the shop, and he just starts getting stuff out of his cabinet. He got distracted by another guy that came into the store. The other guy brought him a guitar rag for his guitar. The cool guy was very excited about this. Cool guy gave the other guy a sticker from his band.
Meanwhile I'm talking to a guy that I know that works there. Two years ago Randy and I went to the Czech Republic on a mission trip and that guy went with us. We talked about kids and stuff. He wanted to know why I didn't bring in the crew. I told him that I didn't think that the tattoo place was a great place for toddlers to hang out. He told me that I would be surprised.
Okay, well, cool guy was done with his little visit so he told me to have a seat.
I had not even had the chance to pick out anything when he was getting ready to do my nose. I was like, "Uh, I don't know what you have picked out there, but I wanted a little diamond stud." He said, "Well, that's what you're gonna get. I've got it right here." OK.
So, I sat in a chair and I told him that I wanted it on my right side. He said, "Are you sure?" I asked him if it made a difference and he said that it did. He said that some people get it done for political, religious or sexual preferences. He said the left side was the "normal side" to get it done. I voted for normal. Plus, he said that nose jewelry was designed to fit on the left side so it wouldn't irritate my nose. I agreed. He marked a spot on my nose with a little marker. I checked the spot and said it was good. Next, he stuck a very small piece of cork in my nose. (strange) Then, he told me to take a deep breath and then to let it out slowly. When I took a deep breath he jabbed a long hollow needle through my nose. *It hurt, but really only for a second.* It did bring tears to my eyes. It hurt a little more than a shot, but not too much more. Remember...I've had 5 children, and several without drugs so a little needle through the nose wasn't much to complain about. So, he let the needle sit there in my nose for a few seconds and then he took it out and put the ring in my nose. He cleaned a little blood off my nose, gave me a couple of instructions, and requested his $35. That's it.

I came home and it was still bleeding just a little bit. I messed with it for a little while, but it looks good now. I can't really feel it in my nose. My eye keeps catching it. It's small, but my eye isn't used to having something in my nose yet.

Randy thinks it's adorable. (Yea!!) He says that it fits my personality.
I was most worried about Joey. He didn't want me to get it done. He never would give me a good reason for not doing it except that he liked me the way I was. When he saw it he said, "That's it? I thought you were going to get one of those things that goes through both sides of your nose! I like what you got." He thought I was going to get some kind of tribal stick through both sides of my nose. He was most relieved to see my little diamond.
Spencer told me he liked it, but he kept acting like he was going to try to take it out.
Jocie loved it. Her friends mom has one.
Melody didn't say much about it.
So far that's all that has seen it.
Oh, except me...I think it's adorable! I'm so glad I went. I feel brave and cute and a little funky.

I think you look absolutely adorable. It does suit you. Except that I have this picture in my head of you at church and someone like Candi Halford coming up and saying, "Oh, you have something on your nose. Here, I'll get it. Oh, wait, it's sparkly. It's one of those jewels people are finding everywhere. But wait, it seems to be stuck there..." You get the idea. I can't wait to see who does that at church on Sunday!

LOVE it! I told Cole I wanted to do it, too. He just laughed his "yeah right" laugh. Oh well, I've got too many freckles anyway. It would look crowded on my face. It looks awesome on you! You're the coolest mom ever!

ummmm.... you are a very brave girl. you always know exactly the the thing to do to remind me that I am terribly old fashioned and not cool at all!
I am very glad that you are happy with it. I am NEVER happy after getting a needle in any form whatsoever.
