I Did It!

Fifteen months ago, when Reese came for her annual visit, we took a little trip into Portland where we were both supposed to get our noses pierced. Let me just say that Reese was brave and I wasn't. I backed out on her, but she went ahead with it. I have regretted it ever since. She knows that and frequently has given me little pushes to go for it.

One day last week we were sitting at the kitchen table when she blurts out "I've had a terrible day and would love to watch someone shove a hole through your nose!". Now, that's true friendship! LOL! I wasn't about to jump out of my seat and run down to the piercer because knowing Reese, she would have asked to do the piercing herself to get her aggressions out :) We did have several discussions about it through the week though and I knew I wanted her with me and that time was running short (or so I thought, lucky for me she's still here!). So, Friday I made the fateful decision to go for it. Once I made that decision I was all nerves the rest of the day.

Here I am at home, getting ready to leave.

Walking in for my torture. Dan's comment was "I can't miss this!" Apparently he thinks I'll back out, but I have two tattoos and my upper ear pierced. Although, I must admit, backing out sounded good at the time.
Getting my nose cleaned.
There are pictures of me having it done, but really they are terrible so I think I will save you the bloody details. Let me just add that apparently the piercer said "oops, we've got a bleeder". Yeah, not pleasant.

Here I am admiring my piercing, sorry you can't see it :) Let me tell you, I love it!

  1. This time when you say "really it doesn't hurt", there is no way I will belive you...


  2. LOL!!!!!!!!!! You are so right, it REALLY hurt! :)


  3. Congrats on the new hole in your head! Glad that after the fact you really love it, would stink if you hated it AFTER the pain.

  4. Congrats on your new piercing, Heather! I am just not that brave:)
