The One Where it's The Moment We've all Been Waiting For!!!

Okay, so maybe all of us haven't been waiting for it, but I sure have!  I got my braces on on August 1, 2008.  I got my braces off TODAY- July 31, 2009.  Almost 1 whole year!  But today was the end of a long, loonnngg journey!  If you've been reading my blog long (and if we are honest, it hasn't been that long haha!) you'll know that I had jaw surgery in December, plus a lot of side affects.  So this "end" has been a long time coming and it closes an interesting chapter in my book.  Now I know you all are just so anxious to see the before and after here they are!

This is me before I left this morning for the orthodontist!  I wore my Clemson Soccer shirt for good luck ;)

This is me with my Aunt Diane at lunch today, the first picture taken of me after my braces were off!  

So what do you think?  Was it a success? :)  

Anyway, the only bummer today is that I have a fever.  I don't feel sick, although I'm kind of tired (but that could be because my ortho appointment was at 7:30 this morning....) but I was supposed to head down to see David tonight, but decided to hold off until the morning to make sure I'm not getting sick.   I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend:)  I'll leave you with this picture!  

This was taken at Jessie's 21st birthday dinner last week!  We had so much fun and I can't wait to do it again!  Love you girls!
