SAY CHEESE!

I am almost finished with Invisalign! I had braces twice when I was younger but was foolish and didn't wear my retainers. Having my teeth move and shift made me really self conscious. Last year I shelled out the dough and got myself invisalign. I was pretty lucky because of course the orthodontist remembers me and gave me a great deal on them. He had already racked in like $12K from my parents for the braces remember :)
Anyways, Invisalign really does work and my teeth are almost perfect again. I had to go in yesterday to get new impressions done of my teeth and that sucked!! They have to be absolutely perfect when they send them to the Invisalign place and the girl couldn't get it right! Instead of doing it once on top and once on bottom, I had it done 6 times!! Its the nastiest purple goop that the put on these trays and hold against your teeth for 4 minutes!! I was in tears towards the end because I really was uncomfortable and started to feel like I couldn't breath because I was panicking in my head. Anyways, we will see how many more trays I need next month. Any of you girls use Invisalign?
Tonight I am going to a fun Mexican restaurant for margaritas, chips n salsa, and good friends. I will try and take pictures as I know posts without pictures aren't as fun!
And tomorrow is Friday!! woohoo!!

I remember that goop from when I had braces... they had to do it so many times they felt bad and gave me free tickets to the movies :)

I love margaritas!! Yum! Have fun!

Also, BB - I think I'm the only person watching who kinda likes Brenden and Rachel... what can I say I'm a sucker for drama and showmances, but I do admit Rachel is annoying!
