The Big Reveal!


Hey all! 

Hope that you are having a fantastic week so far! The weekend is almost here, too! Woot woot! 

So, you may have been a tad curious about why I chose to interview Maria on braces yesterday. Or maybe you just knew where I was going with this. 


Either way, belly roll please...


That's right, folks! After over three years, one graduation, one wedding (my brother's - don't worry you didn't miss anything), three times out of the country, and many other events, my teeth are finally free!! 

I got my braces off right after Christmas and it feels awesome.

When I first got them off, I went out to eat with my parents and our waiter gave me a bunch of gummy bears before our meal came. That was perfect; thank you cool waiter. So many Starbursts and Fruit By the Foots since I have gotten them off too - I think I put my gummy-loving niece to shame.

 I put an apple and carrots everyday in my lunch this week during work (just so my teeth don't completely rot after all the artificial fruit snacks)  and didn't have to worry about anything breaking. :) 

Plus, I finally don't look like I'm 16 or the inspiration of a 2000's cartoon anymore. (Does anyone else remember that show? Loved that in middle school.) 

So, I just wanted to show everyone my pearly whites! 

Next week will start my post-braces outfits - the rest of this amazing outfit will be shown too! 

Have a great weekend everyone! 

xoxo, 

Laura

Oh my gosh I loved braceface! Ahhh those were the good ol' days :)
The ivories look gorgeous babe! I remember I got mine off on my 16th birthday and it was the BEST present EVER! Braces impede the eating of things that I like so that was a problem, haha. Where I got mine off the orthodontist gave you a bag of snickers to take home with you! haha, anyway I'm glad your free now :) Can't wait to see more pics.

Congrats!!! I remember this feeling! It's wonderful and you look beautiful and so do your teeth! Though hopefully you aren't like me...there are STILL foods I'm afraid of and I break all my food into pieces. Braces sure do change you!

Yay! I never had braces (slightly crooked teeth for the win!) so I don't know the feeling, but I can only imagine! I love your green gloves too - they are adorable.
