Brace Yourself...

I could kiss my ortho on the mouth. But I won't. At my appointment yesterday, he told me my teeth look beautiful and I am 6 months ahead of schedule!!!! He thinks he can have my braces off by Christmas! Christmas!!!!!!!!!!

If you've never had braces, this probably doesn't mean a whole lot to you but trust me, it's a big deal. Being 35 and having braces is a little odd, even though it's much more commonplace than it used to be. Even so...Christmas!!! That would be the only present I needed.

He did some minor adjustments to move my canines forward a bit and so today my lower jaw is achy but the rest of me is tickled hot pink!

Christmas!!!!!!! Woohoo!


  1. Awwww... I can't call you brace face or metal mouth anymore.. pooh.

    Well, that's great news for you and now I have to think of something else clever to call you... besides, Amazon and Xena... :P

  2. I'm sure your warped mind will come up with something.

    I had braces when I was 16/17 so I KNOW how thrilling that news is for you! Yaaaaaaaaaaay Kristen!

  4. Although I never had them, my sister did, and I suffered through every moment with her. :) YAY FOR YOU and MERRY CHRISTMAS!! :) ps/ And congratulations on the Golden Heart finalist placement, that's just AWESOME!!!

  5. Hope they come off by Christmas! And congrats on the house. :)

  6. I've had braces twice, so I know what a big deal this is. CONGRATS!

  7. Happpy day for you!!! You'll have to post a pict of the biggest smile in Fl. I'm looking at getting them on again. My wisdom teeth pushed them all forward. I of course have to get the wisdom teeth out. Yay. Ahh, the price of beauty.

    Just wait until you run your tongue over your super smooth straight teeth. It's worth it.
