Yes, this Texan girl is a brace face. Don't worry I wasn't trying to hide it, I just don't have too many pictures of them, and I'm not really a fan of the selfie (except for this one, had to show my mom who still lives in Texas!) I was never able to get braces when I was younger, because my parents definitely couldn't afford it. My husband was so wonderful to help me get them! I am about 8 months in to my treatment and CAN'T WAIT until December (supposedly the time i'll get them off).

I don't ever get the colored bands, just the clear ones, because the tops are ceramic anyways. I feel because i'm older and am in a nursing program, it would look more professional. 
Me and my sister in law, Jordy at the SC Aquarium. 

Some good things about having braces when you get older:  
  • You definitely brush/floss your teeth like your supposed to... my dentist was quite impressed.
  • You get carded at restaurants and the grocery store for wine! (I'll milk that!)
  • People constantly think I'm younger than 22. Hell, I'll take that!! HA!
  • For the first time in pictures, I don't have to worry about what my bottom teeth look like. (oh. my. goodness. you should have seen my bottom teeth before.)
  • I have an excuse if I have something in my teeth! 
I hope everyone has a fabulous friday!!! I feel a Netflix binge coming on... Oh Revenge. You get me every time. 

<3 your Texan Girl
How old were you when got braces? Young? Older?

Did anyone get the crazy colored bands?

How many people actually still wear their retainer?!
