So with the thought of wonky mouths on the brain, I thought this week I'd ask ladies their thoughts on teeth. If anyone told me to get braces though, I'd give them the middle finger.

I apologize to RSS readers- this post prematurely went up before I was done with it. This week marks the 1 year anniversary of this blog (January 4th!
