Of Braces, Cupcakes and Fashionistas

Last week Grace and I began our day with her orthodontist!
It was "Braces Off  Day"!

And because her strange Mom thinks we need to celebrate everything
we played hooky and had a Mom/Daughter day!
We started off with a great lunch at Central Perc Cafe and followed that with 
a stop at Moore Dessert Please for cupcake and caramel apples!
Hey, the braces are off folks! Caramel can now rule!

That afternoon we went window shopping at The Greene
and stayed for the big fashion show!

It was hosted by supermodel Emme who is as 
sweet and friendly as she is gorgeous!
She's been named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful 
People" (1994 and 1999)
 and Glamour magazine's "Woman of the Year" (1997).
 Ladies' Home Journal selected her as one of it's "Most Fascinating 
Women of the Year" (1997) and as one of it's 
"Most Important Women in America" (1999).
Her first book, True Beauty—Positive Attitudes & 
Practical Tips from the World's
 Leading Plus Size Model, was published in 1997. 
Also in 1997, she was invited to speak before a
 Congressional subcommittee about eating disorders.

What a wonderful role model for young ladies! She spoke to the crowd
about loving ourselves, and being beautiful, no matter our size, age or color! 

It was quite the thrill for my fashionista daughter!

Emme lifted Grace up here so they could chat "eye to eye"!
I thought this was so cute.

She wrote the nicest things to Grace who will always
 treasure meeting her.

Emme has a beautiful web site 

Grace also got to meet one of our beautiful local 
celebrities, Marcia Bonhart. Ms. Bonhart is an anchor at
our NBC affiliate.

The lovely Marcia Bonhart

Fashion has been  inspired by The Hunger Games
 trilogy and movie.

After the show we found Grace a great pair of wedge shoes and then
had a delicious dinner at Mimi's Cafe where we talked and laughed for two hours.
Spending such times with my kids is something I cherish.

It was such a wonderful day and one both
 Grace and I will remember always.

Hoping your Fall is starting off with a bang! Ohio has been blessed
by sweet temperatures of late...oh how I am enjoying it!

Till next time...

What a day! You must have been tired when you got home. I remember well the times both of my kids got their braces off -- especially Jenni. She started orthodontia in first grade and got her braces off in February of her senior year - what a mess her mouth was when she started!! Beautiful smile now, however. That was a day to celebrate, I'll tell you!!! Have a good week, sweet Sue. Sally

First of all, hurray for Grace in getting her braces off! I know my daughter was so happy to see her teeth after 3 long years! Yay for caramel apples!

I have been a long time fan of Emme, as I definitely don't look like one of those food deprived models we see so much. She is such a positive person and a perfect role model for women of all ages. I'm so glad Grace got to meet her at such an impressionable age. Great pictures.

What a wonderful day you had. I am sure you will both remember it forever!
