Pumpkin Carving Competition

Today you are going to learn how competitive I really am. I can find a game in almost anything. B and I can be driving down the road and I will say I bet I can name more songs on the radio then you? (This would actually depend on the station we are on?? If we were on Country I would kick his ass...other wise he would probably kick I would also like you to know that I am not a sore loser - considering how many times I lose to him. If we have played 20 games in the last year I have lost 19 of them. That's how bad I am. I must be a glutton for punishment? However I like to think that I lose graciously, my problem is following through on bets. I'm really bad at that! I'm not sure why?? If I won I'd collect my winnings !! Sometimes I wonder why B is going to Marry me?? I don't really play fair!!

Tomorrow is Halloween and we went Pumpkin picking last weekend for the perfect Jack-o-lantern pumpkins. Brian claims that he is REALLY good at carving pumpkins. In true KL nature I had to take on that challenge. We have set aside this evening for our little competition. We are both going to carve our pumpkins -then let our friends and family vote online for which Jack-o-lantern they think is the best. By tomorrow night we will have the 2008 Pumpkin Carving winner!!!

Please let me know which one you like best??

My Teeth Hurt

First off I would like to welcome you to my first ever BLOG!! This is all very new to me and I will do my best to keep you all up to date on my weekly activities for the wedding as well as the progress on my Teeth situation.

I've always wanted braces... ever since I can remember. When I was young it wasn't cool to have braces and since my top teeth were not that bad I thought I could get away with not having them. Well as an adult I have found that my teeth keep shifting. This has been driving me nuts so once I got engaged (and my fiance was able to add me to his health care plan - not the reason we are getting married - but it sure helps!! lol) I decided it was time to take the plung.

Yesterday was D-day for me. I took half the day off work to get braces on my top teeth. I have to say I am a little vain. I've always idolize people with straight teeth. I love to smile and for me this is going to be a huge self confidence booster. However during the process I have to come to terms with the fact that I'll have these UGLY train track teeth (as my good friend Rob, loved calling me last night :) for the next 9-12 months.

I bet you are wondering when I'm getting married and will I have them on for the wedding? Cross your fingers- if everything goes smoothly then I won't be stuck with these for the wedding... but my dentist has assured me that on Sept 22 ( a few days before my wedding date) if by that time I have not had my braces removed he will remove them, no questions asked. I have to say that I was worried that he would fight me on this one. I'm not sure why, it's not like he's telling me I need open heart surgery and I'm refusing to get it done until after the wedding. They're Braces and I'm paying for them. So basically if I wanted them off tomorrow then I can go back in and he'll remove them. 

So far, the pain is about a 4 out of 10. They are some what uncomfortable and my teeth hurt (to be expected). Right now Advil and Tylenol are my new best friends.

Check back soon and I will post some pictures of the before and after....
