Today, I’m excited to welcome MaryBeth from Occupation Housewife to Live the fancy life! Give MaryBeth some love in the comments… especially because she was brave enough to share some pretty intimate photos. Welcome MB!

A rare night out without the boys.

Hello! I am so excited to write my first guest post for Jessica. We met a few years back through mutual friends, but our friendship has grown more recently with our shared love of babies and blogging!

While Jessica never wore braces, it was funny to learn we both shared a similar story related to teeth. Even though I wore braces, we both had wisdom teeth make an appearance in adulthood. What did that mean for me?

Thousands of dollars spent on braces were wasted due to crowding in my four front teeth. I don’t consider my teeth terribly crooked, but they aren’t as straight as they used to be. I have often inspected my teeth in the mirror wondering what I might be able to do to make it better.

Here is me, awesome and awkward in my metal braces circa 1995!

And now in all my mommy glory!

I really don’t think I could go through all that again. I remember getting out of class in 8th grade to walk to my orthodontist appointments. I remember the pain of tightening, the ripped lips, headgear, and of course, how attractive I was as a brace-face. Add that to early 90s fashion and it was not a good look.

Thankfully, we don’t have to go through it all again if we choose to correct our teeth as adults or help our children! Invisalign offers an easier, less painful and much more attractive new alternative to braces.

Invisalign has now treated 2 million smiles! This solution is a modern approach to straightening teeth.

Jessica told me this when we chatted about teeth last week. Yes, we had a conversation about teeth. :) “I personally really want Invisalign because of my wisdom teeth issue and really don’t want to be a 30 something mom with braces.” Ain’t that the truth?

Check out the Invisalign Smile Assessment. It can help you determine if the system is right for you or your children. I know Jessica and I both plan to hop on over there.

Now, if only Invisalign could take care of my mom-jeans rut and frizzy hair. Wouldn’t that be fantastic?
