Yeahhhh!!! :D :D :D

My braces were taken off today! :)
But I had a permanent retainer put in :(

A good friend said-
"You're halfway home"

I'll take it :)

Now for a set of ridiculously happy photos... -


So- that's it for now. There were more photos...but it got kind of silly~

Thanks for all your comments...It's driving me nuts not to be able to get back to all of you. I was trained by COTA today for the rest of what I needed to know about the PR stuff.

I've made flyers for the concert (May 19th), a brochure, a campaign letter, sent a letter to a local reporter, and hand-out cards for Cadence's web site...and I think I'm still mom.

And now my mouth feels awesome! It's wonderful :D

("She"- I've got a bag of pistachios for my afternoon snack! :) LOL- you slay me! )

You look great Cora!

kate said...

There was something terribly cute about ya with the braces, but you look great without them! =] I totally know what you are feeling! I just wanted to smile and keep touching my teeth for days!

Ohhhhh and the thought of kissing without them... ohhhhh weeeee! =]

she said...

OMG they look terrific!! i bet you keep running your tongue over the smooth surface of them (settle down boys) yay!

Iamnot- thank you. I'm glad I did it- and that it's over, except of course the retainer bit...which is no big deal :)

Kate- you read my mind! I hope somebody will be in the mood for some smooching tonight ;)

She- You got it...feels like smooth marble in my mouth :)
I am so happy to have this behind me. Now- I've got to drop another 20 and have a tummy tuck!
LOL :) maybe not?

The downside - you can't pick up XM radio for free anymore... said...

hey ... how good does that feel? hee hee ... lookin even cuter than ever, cora.

foam said...

wow, nontextured toothies!
you look all marbely now...:)

foam said...

oh, that marbely look goes good with both the black and red shirt, btw.
did you do many more shirt changes?

Sean said...

whoo-hoo! congratulations!

SJ said...

Your smile is looking better than ever. Same Cora without the fence :)

/t. said...

you look
fab, dear!

( the marilyn manson
look was pretty hot, too, but this is even better :)


J Cosmo Newbery said...

Same lovely smile...

Mayden's Voyage said...

You kill me...I'm glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read your comment- It would be on my keyboard! :D

Roxanne- thanks dear :) It is a wonderful feeling!

Foam...I told you the picture taking got silly! LOL- pink shirt, gray shirt, feather boa...'
I'm kidding! :)
I've only recently discovered the "right" shade of red for me. It has a blue undertone. Red with a yellow or orange undertone makes me look sick.
I am sure you didn't need to know all that- did you? ;)
I'm going to the beach for Mothers Day :) Windjammer Hotel!!!

Thanks friend. I don't miss the metal! :D

SJ- You are too sweet. Thank you, very much :)

Leave it to you to make me smile- and then say- "HEY! Marilyn Manson???!!!" Ugh!
You know exactly how to keep me in my place- and I appreciate that!!!

I just went over to your page- it's been ages since I have been there.
I have to tell you- reading that Unicorn post reminded me of why I was so smitten with you.

Like a scent that reminds us of a lover from the past...
I realized that I've missed you.
"Semper Fi"

I see you've changed your profile picture. Forgive me for saying this, but you looked fine with braces, you look fine without them. Nevertheless, I'm sure your mouth feels a whole lot better.

When I taught middle school band, one of the worst assignments I had was trying to help students adjust to playing an instrument while wearing braces. So now, nothing is stopping you from taking up the clarinet.

Bardouble29 said...

Awwww, beautiful smile. Nothing feels better in the entire world than getting them braces off.

Scary Monster said...

A bigger smile and a new avatar.
Mrs.C. You just keep getting better alla time.

foam said...

aha, i figured there were plenty of clothes changes. :) heck, i woulda done the same. red can be a tricky color. reds with yellow and orange undertones also do not look good on me.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Now no one will ever know you ate an entire bag of Oreos!

exskindiver said...

ooooh--nice smile. :)

leelee said...

Million Dollar smile girlfriend...congrats!!

Crashtest Comic said...

Braces off--

Nea said...

Bird said...

kate said...

happy MD Cora!!

puerileuwaite said...

That's good news. Now we won't "snag".

Seven said...

I am soooo jealous. Mine have been on for 7 months and I'm not even half way finished. Soooo jealous, but good for you!

Gawpo said...

At 8:24 you are wearing the red shirt. You then change and then, at 8:30, you are wearing the black one.


Sean said...
