Yes, I finally got my braces off. I had my second stage of braces on for 4 years and the expectancie was 2 years (never believe what the othodontist says). I was waiting for this moment for a long time. It definitely feel different and a little slimy. But I now have a retainer and that feels even more different, because I have something at top of my mouth. Since I have four missing teeth, two in the front, I hope to get implants when I am 18:)

First Date

I turned 16 on April 7 and a week before my birthday a guy asked me out on a date. Of course I said yes. And he told me that we were going to go to Silver Creek Falls with his sister and her date. His name is Brenden Perez. He is in my sister's ward, so I've known him for awhile. Overall it was a really fun experience. The hike took about 2 hours. After that we had a subway picnic with some oranges and cookies, and then Brenden and I painted one of the waterfalls. We both have never painted on a canvas, so it was a fun experience. During the hike, him and I were both taking a lot of pictures, and his sister was kind of tired of stopping every 5 seconds, so she decided to go ahead of us and meet us at the next falls. Well we get there and of course they're not there. So we just go ahead and see if there at the next falls. We didn't find them until we headed back. We were alone most of the time. We had so many things to talk about. We talked about so many things that at one point we thought we ran out of things to say:)He is the sweetest boy. He let me go first for everything, he always kept eye contact, and he put a flower in my hair, and he was always listening and trying his hardest to keep his schedule on track. There will definitely be a next date, and I'm planning it:)
