As much as I’d like to muster up some excitement for this week’s WIAW, I’ve got none. You see, I had braces put on my teeth on Monday, and I am in a shit-ton of pain. Yes, I am an adult woman with braces, and it sucks. It took me forty minutes to eat three crackers last night. I’m thinking this could be bad for business.
The orthodontist assured me the gumming down my food phase and excessive pain only lasts a few days, but I’m not out of the woods yet. In fact, I’m still in the middle of the forest beating my head or really just my teeth into a tree. I’d show you a picture of my mouth full of metal, except I’m still way too mortified, so you’ll have to use your imagination.
In any event, I don’t have much to say (I know it’s a first), so I’m just going to share my Sunday eats, which was my last full day of food, eaten with my regular molars, bicuspids and whatever else you can call teeth. As always, special thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons (and maybe even carrots now) for hosting our weekly party.
First breakfast: smoothie with pineapple juice, two frozen bananas and muy mucho strawberries.
Second breakfast: two pieces of toasted Granola bread from the Breadsmith, of course, and then slathered in butter because that’s how I roll.
Lunch: a bowl and a half of homemade Cauliflower Cheddar soup topped with some fresh chives.
Snack: dark chocolate coconut bar; need I say more.
Dinner: a big bowl of pasta. More to come on this little beauty on Friday.
I’d like to tell you more, but I need to go rip my teeth out with my bare hands now because that might be better than braces. Seriously, what was I thinking? Don’t answer that; it’s my vanity, I know. Little diva wanted straight teeth.
Did you ever have braces? Any tips? What was your favorite meal this week? What’s your favorite chocolate bar?
