Dental Damn part deaux

Hey remember last year when I got the bad news of my mouth?  You guys. YOU GUYS.  I had no idea what I was in for. NONE.  I want to write this whole post in caps so you will understand how serious I am.  But I won't.

So in my last post about the dentist I was under the impression (punny) that I would be spending a good chunk of money ($2,800) to correct the damage that my little vitamin sucker did to my grill while I was growing her in my womb.  I had plans to have all of the things taken care of within a month of each other.  Then more life happened and of course, no one has any problem putting off a dentist appointment!  So I pushed it back and back and back until they called last week to tell me I had my cleaning.  And I told them we still need to fix this shit.  So they re-scheduled it.  For the 5th time.

After my cleaning I asked the girl if I had any new cavities.  She chuckled and said well I don't see any new ones per say, but unfortunately cavities don't get smaller... I started sweating thinking I was going to have to have a root canal (my ultimate fear).

Once the dentist finally came in to check out the damage he gave me the run down.  He told me I needed more crowns and I am "lucky" I don't need a root canal.  I told him to get a move on and lets do this shit.  Quickly, while I am still calm.  Before starting, front desk girl brought me a paper to sign, showing me the total of my tooth bill.  I shit my pants.  Right there in the dentist chair.  Right when I got handed a bill for $5,600.  FIVE THOUSAND AND SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS.  Guys, the $2,800 from last year was a quote for all of my teeth.  The left side of my mouth was supposed to cost $1,100.  I just cost myself fourty five HUNDRED dollars by putting my appointment off.

So I didn't really shit my pants.  I just cried a little then paid cause hello?  It's not like I can leave after the whole "cavities only get bigger" spill.  Then what?  Then I come back in a year and you all of the sudden have to pull all of my teeth then I suck and can't even eat food because I put it off again?  Ugh..

I was in that chair for 4 hours.  4 hours.  4 crowns and 3 fillings later.  I finally got to leave.

Here I am, 3 days later, a hell of a lot broke-r, and with a mouth half full of fake teeth.  My mouth is jacked. It hurts so bad.  Still.  9 shots of Novocaine will do that to ya.  9.  Yeah that was fun. Not.  Here is a little collage for your viewing pleasure.  Apparently I love me some instagram when high on NO2...

Moral here?  Don't miss your dentist appointment.  And have really good dental insurance...mine only covered $159.00. LAME.



Have you guys heard of Stitch Fix?  I mean duh?  Is that totally old news?  Well I have been following some bloggers as they get "fixed" and I finally bit the bullet and got my own!  What a great concept, and I mean duh, I get clothes in the mail.
Here is how it works.

"Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that delivers a truly personalized Fixof accessibly priced items directly to doors across the United States. Stitch Fix hand picks pieces for each client, to ultimately help them look and feel their best.
Over time, Stitch Fix tracks and learns from each client’s preferences, likes, and dislikes making it the only shopping experience that can know women’s tastes even better than their friends."

(taken from their website)

It rocks.

So does anyone want to see my first "fix?"  Here goes.

 SO you get your package and it is all cute.  Even has a little note from your stylist!  
First up was this necklace.  I knew this was a keeper because a) look at it, b) I have been trying to add to my "fun jewelry" collection, and c) its cute.  (stationed textured circles necklace - $28)

 Next up, chevron maxi.... eh?  I can't really get on the chevron train and maxi's do weird things to me.  Or maybe it is just my ass doing weird things?  Either way, I wasn't in love, on or off of me.   
P.S. each item comes with a little style card to give you some tips on how to wear it!

Maybe you can't tell in the pic but weird lumps were present.

This little cardigan was CUTE but I have like 4 of these and I already don't really wear them.  I feel like I am never really sure what to do with the hangy things in the front, then I just play with them, then I look like a creep.  So it was a no as well.

This one was a keeper before I even put it on!  I tried it with skinny jeans but wore it to work with giant bell bottoms.  And it is cute! (Joss front tie sheer peasant top - $78)

I need help taking photos of myself obvi.

ok, then this happened.  I had to make this pic bigger so you can see what we are dealing with here.  Guys, guys, what the eff is this guys?  How do you wear something like this.  Why is it so short?  Where do you tie that belt thing?  Is this a pink sack?  I am so confused.  Whose body does this work for?  So yeah, this one was no.  

So what I am saying here is that I thought Stitch Fix was a fun thing to do and I'm doing it again!  
I paid $20 to sign up, that $20 went towards anything I purchased so I got the necklace and the shirt for $86!  I'd say it was a win! 

If you'd like to give it a try click this link! (I'll get a $25 credit when you get your first fix so please do)!

Anyone ever tried Stitch Fix or another clothing subscription?  What did you think?! 


Only Child Syndrome

I am about 99% sure my child heard my thoughts yesterday as I looked at her and for a brief second and thought, we should just have another.  She quickly realized she should show me that we should NOT have another.  One is good, one is enough.  Want proof.  I happen to have it.

No less than 30 seconds after the thought crossed my mind, she was on the ground crying about the bubbles on her hands and in her mouth.  She DRANK the bubbles and didn't like the way they tasted.

She quickly decided that chicken wings (her favorite food) are disgusting and she will not eat them.

She threw her cup that was freshly filled with ice and water down on her toe, causing a irreversible fit as well as a black, bruised toenail.

She whined constantly through her bath because "it's too hottttt, I want Ariel, sing the mermaid song mommy, waaaaaaah."

She acted like tonight was the first time in her life a bed time has ever been enforced when she threw her body to the ground at the end of Bubble Guppies, because that has never meant bed time before...

She made me hold her down to brush her teeth because apparently that is the new form of torture, oh and using the bathroom before bed?  Forget it.  She didn't need to go until AFTER she read 2 books.

She woke up the second I laid down and stayed up until 11:30.  She was complaining of a belly ache.  I knew it was legit because it woke me up too...it was gas.  We have both eaten about 3-4 hard boiled eggs a day since Easter... Classy

Needless to say, I am happy with one.  I can't do this shit times 2.  I just can't.  Don't get me wrong, she makes me happy, she just also has the ability to make me stabby all at the same time, espesh at 11:30 at night.  And lets be real, newborns love them some 11:30 pm!

Who's with me?  How many of my readers are done with one, and how many are gonna try to talk me into more?!

Happy hump day & go check out my So What Wednesday guest post at Fun Things To Do While You're Waiting! (you won't want to miss it)!
