PowerUp your Smile with Philips Sonicare

 As some of you probably know by now, I am SUPER scared of the dentist. I mean knock me out for a cleaning scared. Thank goodness I have always been really lucky with my teeth and hardly EVER had cavities growing up, I never needed braces and my teeth have always been pretty white. Then why am I so terrified of the dentist? Well, I had a REALLY bad experience when I was a kid and have been traumatized since. I try everything in my power to prolong the time between seeing the dentist.
When I started having kids, everything went downhill as far as my teeth were concerned. As you can imagine, when I was told I had 7 cavities at my last check up in April, it was a bit of a shock! I cried. Yep, I totally did. After I had half of the cavities filled, I went in for a cleaning. The hygienist was SO nice and pointed out a few of her favorite products. She pointed out a few Sonicare items they had for sale in office but told me any electric toothbrush would do fine for my needs.
Since I can't afford a Sonicare toothbrush, I took her information and left the office. A few weeks ago, I heard about a new toothbrush from Philips Sonicare that I COULD afford! I headed out to Walmart to see what the hubbub was all about. I quickly found the display and at under $20, quickly put a Sonicare PowerUp in my cart!
I was hesitant to try it at first because my teeth are pretty sensitive. The brush I was using was a super soft manual brush. I was only able to find a medium brush and was worried it might be too stiff for my teeth. It wasn't at all! Since I am so used to using a manual toothbrush, it did take me a few days to get used to the vibration of the electric toothbrush but, it wasn't a big deal.
Because you get a month's worth of brush strokes in just one day with the Philips Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush, I know my hygienist is going to be super impressed at my next check up! Oh, and just what do I plan to do with my old manual toothbrush? Well, use it for cleaning of course!

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
