We’re still not barbecuing steak this summer…

Haha…NOPE! We can’t do it BECAUSE that would be just plain MEAN!!

Today marks ONE YEAR that my sweetie has had braces on!!

Yes, it’s a lot more of an ordeal for a 52 year old than a teenager or even a 23 year old ( when James had his braces) And unfortunately it’s gonna take a little while longer than 1 year…sorry hon!

Poor David has had a few challenges with braces poking his cheek and busting brackets. We’ve teased him a bit that he needs a standing appointment each week just to get things fixed after the adjustments. He’s a trooper though. Β He LOVES food probably more than I do BUT there is a BIG difference. He’s not adventurous and doesn’t really care for all the “green” that shows up in dished when I cook. He LOVES what I call “junk food” Anything sweet and sugary and not good for you. And he he’s very slim and trim…how is that possible?

BUT with braces this last year he has been good about not eating so much sugary food and of course there are things he just can not eat. Actually, he’ll tell you eating has NOT been “fun” this last year. And he’s lost weight. Poor guy…everyone comments that he’s gotten skinny. haha.

So today is ONE year! ONE down! AND hopefully not too much longer!!!! But I am so proud of you hon that you made it this far!!!

In the meantime…enjoy those soft treats that you enjoy…

There’s plenty of time for BBQ steak…when the braces come off!!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.

  1. Aww! I have to know- does he get to enjoy steak now?!? It’s been a couple months! Hehe. Either way- I love how he faces it with such a smile on his face!
