Smile, and the World Smiles with You!

I'm off to the dentist this morning, to start the process of having a temporary phony tooth made (one that I can wear to my son's December wedding, as the permanent implant will not be ready in time for that), because this is what I look like these days:

 (Only not nearly as pretty as the lovely Duchess, whose face, figure, hair, and wardrobe I would take in a New York minute.  And in my case, the gaping hole is on the top, not the bottom.  But otherwise, this is about right.)

Because my smile makes me so self-conscious, this is how I've been rolling lately:

And I really hope I don't end up like THIS!! 

So that's my big news for today: I have a dentist's appointment.  Aren't you glad you stopped by?

Oh, wait a minute, I do have something worthwhile to report after all!  My very soon-to-be newest daughter-in-law is celebrating her birthday today.  She has the most gorgeous smile, and I'd take her teeth in a New York minute!

Happy Birthday, sweet girl!  Keep on smilin' and showing off  those Pearl-y whites!  ;)


  1. Thanks Renee!! And thanks for the sweet shout out Mom to be!

  2. Hope all went well at the dentist...I hate going to the dentist. I've been putting it off way, way, way too long. Reading this makes me think that I should probably go soon.

    1. I've been so good about tooth care and regular check-ups...but I've either got bad genes or bad luck! I suppose I could have far worse problems than dental woes, though. I've got to keep :)-ing!

  3. Happy Belated Birthday, Katie.
    Laura, if you don't mind my asking, where did you get your red purse?
    I've been looking for a new one, and have had no luck.
    Have a safe and blessed trip.

    1. Gail, I got my purse at TJ Maxx (one of my favorite places to shop!) for less than $30, but it was about a year or so ago.

      Thanks for the well wishes. :)
