New First

I have experienced a new first for me. Today I went to the dentist for my 6 month check-up and I have my first cavity. I had been preparing myself for a couple of days that this might happen because I’ve been feeling some plan for the past month when I chew on the left side of my mouth. However, even with all the preparing….I still had to work hard to hold back the tears as I drove from the dentist office. I’m very sad…I’ve made it 29 years without a cavity. After my last appointment in December I kind-of knew there was a chance that I’d have a cavity soon because they said there was a spot that they wanted to keep a close eye on, but still….I at least wanted to make it until I was at least 30 before my first cavity!

Anyways….enough pouting…It’s time to get over it. I’m very nervous about getting my tooth filled next Tuesday so keep me in your prayers!

Florida Fun

Last week Kristian and I took a little vacation to Pensacola Beach, Florida. One of her friends from high school got married on the beach and she needed someone to go with her….I cheerfully volunteered to join her.

We left on a Thursday and came back on Monday. Our hotel was right across the street from the beach so it was a short walk across the parking lot each day….it worked out perfectly.
We spent most of our time on the beach laying out and soaking up the rays. The beach was beautiful. The sand was so white and fine. The water was nice and warm the first three days…but the last day it was pretty cool. There were also lots of jellyfish in the water the last day we were there.
We ate dinner at a local restaurant, Peg Leg Pete’s, 3 out of the 4 nights we were there…it was delicious! We shared the fried shrimp and we didn’t leave a drop of anything on the plate each day. I loved it.
It was a great vacation with my youngest sis…I’m so glad we had the opportunity to do this together, hopefully we’ll be able to have more little vacations together in the future.
