… and they’re off!

 monday: december 10th


wanna know a secret? well, i guess it’s no longer a secret. but it was until this morning…. (NO, we’re NOT pregnant again)…


they’re off. for real. after 2 years, 4 months and 14 days, my braces are finally history. so here is a NOT so great photo of me (with davey) and NO braces:


it’s been a long, long journey. it WAS totally worth it. and the journey isn’t over yet. starting on wednesday, i’ll be wearing a retainer all day and all night for 6 months and then after that time, i get to wear it only at night while i sleep. but i still say it was totally worth it!


here’s a cuter shot of davey. he’s wearing his cowboy outfit from aunt marylou (who lives in oklahoma)! 


my christmas shopping adventure with carrilee yesterday was a huge success. i WAS able to complete about 90-95% of my shopping (including stocking stuffers)! not bad, eh?! yeah! and it even SNOWED again yesterday… just a dusting, but it was beautiful. i loved it, especially since i didn’t have to drive in it!


dave and i bought davey an exersaucer for his "big" Christmas present this year. and tonight we decided to put it together (well, I put it together) to let davey try it out. yeah. he seemed to really enjoy it. i’m hoping it will keep him happy and content while i get things done around the house (laundry, dishes, dinner, work, scrapbooking, etc.). only time will tell. but anything that keeps him upright (check) and lets him stand up (check) should keep him pretty happy.


okay. time to go to bed… i’m pretty tired (it’s 10:51 p.m.)

  1. Congratulations! Your teeth look beautiful BUTTTT they are overshadowed by that absolutely adorable protruding tongue displayed by “guess who”! What a cutie!

  2. Congratulations! That is huge…and you look beautiful! What an incredibly fun relief for you…finally to be brace free again. Definitely worth it! You look awesome!

  3. hey! isn’t it weird to feel your teeth again?? i remember that, even though it was a lo-o-o-ng time ago! i guess you could say i’m “excited” to have some dental work done too – finally getting my front crowns replaced next wk that have never looked the greatest. :) anyway, hope you’re all doing well and that we can chat sometime soon!
