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!

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.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
