At Home Teeth Whitening That Actually Works!

By on October 12, 2017

Hi guys! Happy Thursday, I hope everyone is making it through the week alright. Mine feels like it is dragging a bit but that could be because I am really, really looking forward to this weekend. I am going to Food & Wine at Disney with my sister so bring on the weekend!

So now onto the goods. I was asked by a Smile Brilliant Rep to try out their whitening product in exchange for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Growing up I always had pretty awesome teeth. They’re pretty white and really strong. But as I got older I have noticed a slight tinge to my teeth. The first Mother’s day after the girls were born I bought a coffee maker and haven’t turned back since. So with the amount of coffee I need to survive on a day my teeth were definitely not as white as they once were.

I have always been leery of whitening products. I stuck to Crest strips when I was younger but they were more of a nuisance when I had 3 children and couldn’t just hide in my bathroom to whiten my teeth. Now I had to actually do things while whitening my teeth because I am either running after children or trying to relax the second they are in bed. And lets be real the strips that are a one size fits all are more annoying than anything. So when I had the opportunity to try custom fit whitening trays I was all sign me up! 

So here is how it went. I got the kit while we were in the process of moving so it took me forever to send everything in. Once I actually did the molds which were super easy, you literally just take the putty like substance, mash it together, place in molds and put it in your mouth for a couple

minutes (insert drool face) and then you pop them out. Super easy. Just make sure you actually follow directions and get the correct mold of your teeth. My bottom mold was too shallow which I suspected and should have fixed right then but didn’t and ended up having the redo mine. Thankfully they ship everything extremely quickly.

Once you get your custom trays it’s all really simple. You use a string to put a line of whitening gel in the tray then pop them in. I really thought they wouldn’t be much different than the strips I have used from the store. Not sure why I thought this but I didn’t realize the custom trays would make it feel like you weren’t wearing anything. The only reason you know you have them in is if you put too much gel on the tray and you need to spit it out which I did the first time.

After the trays are in place you just go about your business. No one can tell you are wearing them which is nice too. My biggest issue with doing this review was trying to get a picture of me wearing them where you can actually tell I am wearing them. Either way they are really comfortable and work! The proof is in the pictures. Now it is your turn to try get yours. Use this link to order them now. You can also enter the giveaway below for a chance to win your own whitening kit! Comment down below if you have ever tried any type of whitening toothpastes or kits and how they worked for you.

The Undeserved Life: Part 2 + Giveaway!

By on September 27, 2017

This two part series from This Undeserved Life is from Author Natalie Brenner. She is a fellow Mom of two babies who were born less than 5 months apart. I am so excited for you to read the second excerpt from her book. She has generously offered a copy of her book to one of my awesome readers. So sit back and enjoy the rest of this chapter and make sure you enter the giveaway at the end.

An excerpt from This Undeserved Life
(May 2016)

People refer to me as Super Mom or Super Woman. But these titles are the furthest from the truth. I am just as much a wreck as any other mom. I am a hot mess and need Jesus just as much. I am unsure how to tear down the false beliefs that I somehow have it together more than the next mom. It is probably the same as tearing down every other false belief and stigma: by being honest.
And so I am. I remind mamas I cry a lot, constantly wondering if I am messing up my child’s attachment forever. I need Jesus. Just like every other mama, I needed Jesus during our “waiting season,” in discovering we were pregnant (both times), as we considered our son’s situation, the moment we said “yes” and trusted He would provide, and when his birth mama chose us. I need Jesus every single moment of every single day and I know when Sage’s little brother arrives, I will need even more of Him.
Artificial or virtual twinning, whichever name society prefers, is certainly not for everyone, but it isn’t set apart for super women either. Raising two babies less than five months apart, in two different developmental stages, is going to be hard. I know this. But I also know He is with me. He prepared me for this. He used the weighty wait to create a hunger in me to be broken and poured out into little humans. He was refining me to invest in these little souls; it was God showing me how to teach my boys what it meant to love and be loved well. If I teach these two how to love well, I will have done my job. It’s easier said than done, and I’m not ready to think I know what I am doing. I simply agreed to take this beloved journey one day at a time, and be honest along the way.
There are so many reasons not to virtual twin and I agree with them. Before I knew I was pregnant again, I had an inkling we would live some beautiful, unique story. When our social worker told us we shouldn’t be trying to also get pregnant while adopting, something in my gut said, “But what if we were made for this?”
As we approached our biological baby’s due date, I relished in our time with Sage as an only child. He will hold this spot briefly: five months if all goes well. He won’t remember being an only child either. For us, this was unique and precious. We had a few months to be parent to one, before inviting our second treasure home. We will only experience being parents to one for a few, short months. This is unique and precious.
We don’t know how the story will unfold, how parenting these two so close in age will work out, but we are thankful for the opportunity to do our best. I fully believe that doing my best means constantly stopping to ask questions, listening to others, hearing from adoptees, other virtual twins, and people of color. More than ever, I am learning that loving my boys well meant listening to others who had already lived a story similar to theirs. I will continue to listen for the sake of my soon to be artificial twins.

I want to give a huge thank you to Natalie for sharing her story and giving away a copy of her new book. Make sure you follow all social media outlets for Natalie and fill out the rest of the giveaway entries below.

Giveaway: Win a Year of McNuggets Happy Meals!

By on August 18, 2016
This is a sponsored post, thank you McDonald’s of South Florida for the opportunity to work with you! McDonald's Logo 

 Us mamas know that our children’s health is our number one concern. That’s why we pay such close attention to what we feed them. Sometimes after a long day, we need a quick meal, but we also don’t want to feed our children foods that contain harmful and artificial ingredients. We recently had a chance to sit down with some local McDonald’s franchisees in South Florida to discuss McDonald’s new and simpler Chicken McNuggets, as well as McDonald’s commitment to provide healthier and natural foods to its customers. The three franchisees, two moms and a dad, explained how they have seen McDonald’s evolve over the years as they grew up in the business. We also had the opportunity to taste test the new yummy McNuggets, which are made with 100% white meat and no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors. Many of us mamas noticed a slight difference in flavor from the McNuggets we grew up with. However, we liked the new taste and we liked the fact that they were healthier, even more. These new McNuggets bring back that childhood feeling without the adult guilt!

Keep reading for an announcement from McDonald’s, more info about the McDonald’s App, and for the giveaway!

Announcements From McDonald’s

McDonald’s USA recently announced a number of moves across its menu as the company continues to evolve. This includes:

  • removing artificial preservatives from several items which also don’t have artificial colors or flavors, including its iconic Chicken McNuggets. Across its breakfast menu, the pork sausage patties and omelet-style eggs served on McGriddles, Bagel and Biscuit breakfast sandwiches, along with the scrambled eggs on its breakfast platters, also now have no artificial preservatives.
  • rolling out new buns this month that no longer contain high fructose corn syrup, including the buns used on Big Macs, Quarter Pounders, hamburgers and cheeseburgers, Filet-O-Fish and McChicken sandwiches. The Artisan roll introduced in 2015 never contained high fructose corn syrup.
  • completing a major commitment to only serve chicken not treated with antibiotics important to human medicine* nearly a year ahead of schedule.

My New Morning Ritual + $15 Gift Card Giveaway

By on February 23, 2016

Happy Mondays! So now that we have beat the Mondays it is time to go after this week and rock it. I have been in a bit of a slump when it comes to my mornings. I have been rushing out of the house and not spending any time for myself. I used to wake up at 5:45 am and have time to really just be by myself and savor the quiet. 
I knew I had to do something to get past this slump and get back my mornings. Here is the perfect morning rituals for any Mommy who wants a little Me time.
1. Wake up before everyone else. I know, I know. You are probably groaning at the thought of getting up earlier than you need to but trust me, it is a life saver. 
2. Get ready for the day. When I get up early and don’t have my kids pulling at my legs I have time to actually put on my make up and do my hair. I feel way better about myself  and put together.

3. Have a delicious and healthy breakfast. I find it hard to find cereals that are not only good tasting but healthy. I just started eating Nature Valley’s Honey Oat Clusters. It is packed with protein so I know it will keep me full and not craving junk later. I add it to blueberry yogurt to really fill me up. 
You can get a coupon for $1 off HERE
4. Be grateful! Starting the day with a grateful mind and heart is so important to me. I feel that it helps me stay positive even when things get tough. Kids can be whiney and making messes but without them my life would not be as incredible as it is. Getting up super early for my job can be tough but it brings me so much joy that I can’t imagine not working. So that is the perfect way to look at it. Be grateful and all things will fall into place! 
Now it’s time for you to enter to win a $15 Pay Pal Gift Card! And when you are done entering this giveaway go HERE for another chance to win a Pay Pal Gift Card!
Head over to Nature Valley’s site and check out the Nature Valley Cereals. Make sure you pick up the $1.00 coupon then come back here and tell me which cereal you want to try!

A Day in the Life + Gift Card GIVEAWAY!

By on February 20, 2016


  I haven’t done a day in the life post in so long so I thought it would be fun to journal what a typical day is for us. I chose a weekend day since the weekdays are not as interesting since I work now. You can see what our lives are like from the kids waking up to dinner time and past bedtime! Make sure you enter the GIVEAWAY at the end!
Thank you to Publix Viva Italia for Sponsoring this post!

7:00AM
The kids are up. Diapers are changed and we head downstairs for breakfast. 
Then it is breakfast time. The girls usually eat waffles, fruit and milk. Ace will eat cereal.

8:00AM
Outside playtime! I love our backyard. We don’t have a large yard but we have a good size patio and the kids have fun stuff to play with making it easier for them to be entertained out there for awhile. 

9:00AM
The kids came inside and played with some of the girls new toys. We did a joint party for them on Saturday. They are all really into pretend play. 

10:00AM
Snack and playtime upstairs. A change of scenery is a must. Branden was cleaning the floors so the kids and I hung out upstairs and did puzzles and other random stuff in their rooms. 
12:00PM
After picking up a RX it was lunch time! We all sit together at the table and eat together on weekends. It’s nice for me since I don’t get to do this during the week.

 12:45 PM

More playtime before naps. My sister came over so the kids played with her and my niece. 
1:00PM
Nap time for the girls and quiet time for Ace. Bran and I watched The Walking Dead while they napped. OMG, no spoilers but OMG!

3:30PM
Girls are up and then it’s snack and TV time again for all three. After they finish their snacks they play some more. 

4:30PM 
Branden or myself will cook dinner. Sometimes it is both of us like tonight. We both kind of threw things in a pot to make some really delicious italian dish for the kids. I always use Hunts® Diced Tomatoes in our pasta dishes because it gives it some more substance. We also had a treat and I made Pillsbury crescent rolls. Another favorite.
Check out Publix for some major savings on their Viva Italia Sale now till the 2nd of March. 

5:00PM
Dinner & Family Time!
 Branden and I try to always eat dinner together as a family. We sit down together, pray, talk and eat dinner. I love hear what Ace’s favorite part of the day is. The girls are still a bit too young to talk much during dinner but they still talk or sing. We also find that if we sit together as a family and eat we have less issues with the kids eating. Ace and Ashlyn usually are our picky ones so this has made it a lot better. This night everyone was happy to eat and devoured dinner. Italian food is a huge hit with them.


 6:00PM 

More Playtime for the kids
  7:00PM 
Bath Time
The kids all take a bath at the same time, which makes life so much easier on me. I don’t know how much longer this will last since Ace is getting older but as of now they all love playing in the bathtub together. 
  
7:30PM
Girls’ Bedtime
We have the same bedtime routine every night. We go into the girls room after baths, get PJ’s on and the kids play for a little bit. After they have played we read a couple of books of their choice then we sing songs, their favorite is The Wheels on the Bus. After that we read Goodnight Moon quietly and then the girls are off to bed. 
8:00-8:30PM
Ace’s Bedtime
Ace’s bedtime varies between 8/8:30. It really just depends on how tired he is. If he has had a busy day it’s earlier. If he isn’t super tired we let him come hang out with us downstairs for a bit then we put him to bed. His routine is we read books then snuggle in bed till he falls asleep. He was having trouble going to sleep because he was really scared so we now like to lay with him till he falls asleep. He usually falls asleep within 10 minutes and it’s a nice time for us to just have a little one on one time with him. I really cherish this time with him. 
8:30PM
Mommy and Daddy time.
If Branden isn’t working or isn’t working on school stuff this is when we get to just hang out together. We have our shows we like to watch so we cuddle on the couch (totally cheesy I know but we do) and I usually fall asleep on him at some point, ha! 
9:30/10PM
BED! 
I am usually passed out at this point. Branden not so much.

Now enter to win a $10 Pay Pal Gift Card Sponsored by Viva Italia at Publix! Check out their delicious recipes and coupons!

How to get through the Flu + GIVEAWAY with Progresso!

By on January 11, 2016

Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays. I was off of work for two weeks and the first week was great. We did a lot of Christmas activities and spent time with friends and family. It was nice to just focus on the kids. 

The second week was not so great. The flu took over our household. That week consisted of high fevers, one of which landing Ashlyn in the ER, coughing and sleepy, whiney kids. As a Mom it is never easy seeing your babies sick. Ace got it the worst and his then turned into croup. At one point he couldn’t stop cough and had trouble breathing and we took him to the ER to get a steroid to help. So as you can see it was a very difficult week. 
So what does a Mom do when all her kids get the flu? Here are some tricks to help you through. 

1. Create a sick couch. If one of your kids has the flu and there is no way to really keep them completely away from the other kids try to keep a space on the couch with their blanket and pillows and that is the sick couch or spot. The other kids need to sit on the other couch or away from that spot. The sick child should only use that pillow to lay on. It’s not a perfect solution but it helps them have their spot to sleep and be cozy. 

2. Have a lot of soup on hand! While our kids were sick they all lost their appetites. They just weren’t    hungry and with coughing their throats would hurt too. The best thing you can give them is soup. It soothes the throat since it is nice and warm and easy to eat. We stocked up on Progresso Light Soups. So while the kids were eating Chicken Noodle Soup I was devouring their Vegetable Soup. Publix has a $1 coupon you can get HERE. I highly suggest stocking up. 
3. Luke Warm Baths for the win. When the fevers make your child miserable a great solution is a luke warm bath. It also was a miracle worker in making my kids feel better. It was like they got in the water and perked up. It was a nice time for them to play since they didn’t seem to want to do anything but lay around when they were out of the tub. 

4. Lots of snuggles. The good thing about the kids getting the flu while I was off work is they had lots of snuggle time with Mommy. I mean who doesn’t want to just lay around with their Mom when they are sick? I know even as an adult that’s the person I wanted when I was sick.
5. COFFEE! What saved me through this was drinking coffee. We had a lot of nights with no sleep and I seriously wouldn’t have survived without a trip to Starbucks. 
How to enter to win a $15 Gift Card
Ends: 1/25/16
1. Now that you have heard my suggestions on getting through the flu season check out the Progresso Light Soups HERE and comment below which two soups you would like to try.
 
2. Comment with your New Years Resolutions for a second entry.
