a day in ortho

Teeth and kids. Two of my most favorite things.  Two things my job embraces the fact that I love. 

I've shown you where I work before. Its a fun place. Disneyland dentist style, if you will. So today we went a step further in Disneyland. As of today.. once a month we are going to have what we call "Deband Day" in ortholand. That is when all of our patients that are getting their braces off will be scheduled to come on the same day and get their braces off.. and of course, celebrate! 
To pay off all the hard work and great cooperation these kids give us, we figured they deserve a huge party! So Dr. Jason rented a tux. The four girls wore prom get up. We had the balloons all blown up. The goodies that have all been ignored during time of braces were all on display, and then devoured. Pictures were taken. And sparkly white teeth and lots of excitement was revealed!!!

Here is my day in pictures... 

Our Ortho Family.. 

The Goodies...

A little debanding action..

Having braces was totally worth it, right??
I heart my job. Especially when I can wear my sparkles and Uggs to work.. 
Happy Wednesday!!!!

Just a little update..

Well.. Hello!! 

So this weekend. What a blessed and wonderful weekend catching up with great friends in my life. My weekend started off Thursday with dinner with Lauren. Whom of which, asked me over our favorite meal, to be apart of her wedding in May. I'm very thankful to have such a wonderful friend in my life that truly is a blessing.  Friday I kept the boys as usual.. Spider man himself..

Followed by dinner and drinks with a bunch of girls from college.. the only picture taken of the night (I have got to get better about taking pictures of other things other then the kids I play with--Someone hold me accountable!)

Then there was Saturday.. which consisted of running around Fayetteville and enjoying NWA with Annie and Katelyn. Which in addition, was when my purchase of my beloved poncho that I have been looking for high and low for, was made. That evening was topped off with sushi with Rachel.

Sunday.. oh Sunday.. lazy PJ reading Sunday. I heart thee. I have started a new book series. The Hungry Games. Highly recommended by a close friend and her husband in Little Rock. I understand why. There are 3 books in the series, about 200ish pages each. Delightful is what they are!! If you need a good read.. there ya go! 

And today.. 
 it was a snow day today. Sort of. I got a text at 6AM saying "No work!!"-- followed by a text at 8:30 that says "See ya at 10".. it was nice to have a few extra hours. Working at a kids clinic we generally flow with the school schedules. Well.. this time, we kind of did : ) But I did complete my day with a lazy Bachelor watch party with Lauren and some girls.. Oh Drama... Drama, drama that show is!!

Lastly, I leave you with this simple little message. 
Listen to your heart. Listen to the Holy Spirit and what is being spoken to you. My lesson right now that I am learning is so crystal clear. So obvious of what I need to focus on.. the areas where I need to improve.. the weaknesses that need to be strengthened. Not to mention, how this is all being revealed. Is simply amazing! I encourage you to just focus. Its not hard when you are just simply still. Just having faith. 

Jesus tells us in Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5:3
"Blessed are those who have realized their own utter helplessness, and have put their whole trust in God." 

I hope you have a wonderful week!! 
Have a blessed day,
