I am getting Invisalign! I’m so super excited 🙂 My teeth aren’t that bad, but I never “needed” braces growing up, so I didn’t get them. Once I was in probably about high school, I started being really self conscious of my teeth… I don’t really like the way they look! Getting Invisalign is something I’ve really wanted for so long, and I’m finally doing it.
My Aunt Lyn just opened up her very own dental practice in Center City Philadelphia last month called Dental Arts of Logan Square. The office is absolutely gorgeous, and since Aunt Lyn will be doing my Invisalign, I got to visit it for the first time yesterday. Anyone in the area should go there! She’s the best!! And even better- my very own Mom is her Office Manager. 🙂 (WE ARE FAMILY… i got all my sista’s with me!)
Last night when I got home from my appointment, I went into the kitchen to make dinner and noticed that our ENTIRE bunch of bananas were brown. BOO! What’s the best thing about browning bananas? That means it’s time for banana bread!
This banana bread recipe is my Mom’s, and one of the first recipes to be added to my personal collection.
It is seriously the easiest thing to make. Since we had SIX super-ripe bananas, I made TWO banana breads. I timed myself both times, and both times it took me just under 5 minutes to whip this up. I love it!

Did I mention how deliciously amazing this banana bread is? I have several recipes saved for fancier BB’s but this one just takes the cake! This is a great example of how sometimes simpler is better 🙂
I brought one of the breads into work today and got rave reviews! I individually wrapped the slices in plastic wrap which makes it really easy to share.
