One Month!

I can't believe I am officially one month away from surgery! I remember reading blogs nonstop before I even had braces on, and thinking 'in one year, this will be me!' I was antsy then, but I can't even begin to describe how antsy I am now. Sometimes I think 1 month sounds so close, almost too close, and other times, it just can't seem to come soon enough!

I had a sorority formal last weekend, so I thought I would share a picture of my lovely boyfriend and I :)

Last night, two of my close friends (and coworkers) had a very small, private wedding ceremony. After the wedding, they held an unofficial wedding reception, as the actual reception is taking place in August, at a nice bar/restaurant in Wisconsin. We were incredibly lucky that the groom's mom decided to take care of the tab :) I work at two sister car dealerships in Wisconsin, and have since high school. I am so lucky that I have grown so close to so many of my coworkers, a majority of the party last night was made up of people I work with! It's kind of like one big family; my sister and her fiancé both work there, as does my boyfriend, and Mackenzie (the bride) and her husband both work here as well! We tend to hang out a lot as a group, but this time, a lot more of the dealership staff was out. SO much fun!

Me, my friend Bree and the beautiful bride Mackenzie :)

That's all for now! xx

    Hey! Glad you had such a good weekend. Cute boyfriend! ;)

    I'm on an emotional roller coaster now, girl! One minute I cannot wait to the surgery to happen. The next, I think omg, i'm destroying my face! I know I need this done for functional reasons, and I can't wait to be able to eat without feeling like a rabid dog, to smile and show teeth instead of gums, to wake up feeling refreshed instead of in pain. But still I am freakin. Ah! I have my admissions labs and blood donation monday afternoon. Wish me luck! :)

    very beautiful picture! you look great!! I'm so excited for you and Tina!!

    haha Jen, I certainly will be enjoying eating as much as I can. With blowing my nose, I have always had sinus issues and still have a deviated septum after two surgeries, so I am very well aware of the congestion issues I will be dealing with post-op!
    Tina, I completely agree. I feel like I am either so excited, or so freaked out, constantly flipping back and forth. I have been spending a lot more time in front of the mirror looking at my teeth and thinking 'I cannot WAIT for these to be where they're supposed to.' Even though I am nervous, I cannot possibly deal with the jaw pain and headaches any longer, so focusing my attention on the surgery in that way helps me feel a bit more ready.
    Tara, I can't wait until Tina and I can both be cheering you on come time for your surgery! :)
