I almost cancelled this weeks edition of the Word of the Week for Big Breaking News.
However, I reconsidered and decided to incorporate my big breaking news into the post.  I have had a huge smile all day.  In fact, my face is almost sore from smiling.   Can't seem to stop.
Hmmm, are you wondering what is making me smile??  ........................
OK, you twisted my arm - I'll tell you the Big Breaking News
This morning....................I had my braces removed.  Yippee, Woohoo, Hurray etc etc. 
I have my smile back.

Now I have to go and eat everything I can get my hands on.  Lol


  1. Oh wonderful! I remember getting mine off! Everything felt so soft in my mouth. It was weird for a while.
    What are you planning to tackle for forbidden food first?

  2. Kim, I'm so happy for you. It's strange that I was thinking about you and your braces just yesterday and was wondering about when were your braces coming off. My kids call me a witch because sometimes I have a second sense about things.

    I would LOVE to see a SMILING picture of you. That little smiling kitten just about threw me off my chair from laughing. Smile and the whole world smiles with you.

    Go celebrate with your million dollar smile. Hugs, JB

  3. WooHoo!! Didn't even know you had braces ~ but yea!! that they're off - I guess....Never had them myself...but my son did - and I remember the pain of trying to get him to not eat what he wasn't supposed to (think he eats that crap now, though??!)....couldn't have come off too soon.... Yes, we need a real smilin' pic of Miss Kim!!! :o))

  4. Funny and cute post.
    Happy for you the braces are off.

  5. Congratulations, on being metal free! I smiled all day for the sun was shining, the birds singing, and I got to work in my flower garden, this time of year it's my favorite place to be!!

  6. That is a reason for HOOPLA! I am sure that you are loopy that the repair to your teeth is complete and has left you with a relentless smile! Don’t let anyone stifle your new grin. We all anticipate a picture! I never needed braces so I can’t appreciate what you have gone through to obliterate a discombobulated smile. You deserve to walk around with a zombie like grin on your face!

    It was ferociously hot here yesterday – 102 degrees! I was whipped! Of course, the loser AC went out and we groped for space in front of the fan. We were delusional to think that anyone would be out to fix it anytime soon and a migraine set in. I became vindictive and wanted to go and demolish the neighbor’s AC just because it was working! Well, that would have been plain balderdash on my part so I went to the pool. Very chameleon-like, I became a much nicer person when I hit that lovely water. Of course, the temps are now going to be in the 70’s and the AC is fixed. . . . . .WHATEVER!

  7. Hahaha This is your best so far!

  8. well you must be so happy and that is good news. get out the gum and chew away! I smiled today because my husband took me out for a burger. I didn't have to cook and it came with a nice cool "drink" mmmm. I am still smiling!

  9. Oh I am so happy for you, isn't it wonderful to finally get them off. I can't wait to hear what you are going to eat first.

  10. Congrats, Kim! I'm sure you have a beautiful, perfect smile now that you need to share with us!
    Pug hugs :)

  11. HORAY!!!
    It must feel great to have those braces GONE!
    Hope you post pictures of all the fun stuff you eat.
    SMILE ON!!!

  12. Congratulations! I thought, for a moment, you were going to tell us the sunflower sprout came back to life and decided to grow up!

  13. Hooray for you....glad your braces are off. Nothing like getting all that wiring off :)

  14. I had to come see what all the smiles are about over here! That's wonderful Kim! Enjoy and celebrate! Can't wait to see what you sink your teeth into!
