Shiny Smiley Day!

Guess what day it is folks! Yep. My braces!

As I type this at 7:00 a.m., I'm thinking about what I should eat for breakfast before heading to my appointment this morning. My sister-in-law, friends and acquaintances have informed me of what NOT to eat while wearing braces, and since I will have them on for 2 years, I thought I would pig out!

My breakfast will consist of:
- my usual wheat/dairy-free pancakes with applesauce, almonds & flaxmeal
- nuts - a big bowl full (squirrels love nuts!)
- caramel
- popcorn, not cooked, just the raw kernels
- thick, chewy gooey fudge with LOTS of nuts (drools)
- several ice cubes
- a side of taffy

Okay. So that's a big fat lie! I'll only have my usual breakfast and dream about the fudge.

I was going to have Mark take a before picture of me this weekend, but we completely forgot about it. So I decided to use one of my favorites of the both of us. It was taken 2 years ago at one of my brothers BBQ gatherings. It's not very glamorous, but hey, that's me. Yes, there will be an 'after' photo :)

Not only do I create with silver, but by noon today I will be SMILING silver.

Kind of fitting, don't you think?

Have a happy shiny smiley day!

I hope your braces appointment went well today! I'll send you some take-away-the-pain good vibes :) I've never regretted wearing braces for three years, but luckily I did it as a kid. I don't know if I could take the pain now! LOL
