Krispy Kreme is giving away a free donut if you go in and talk like a pirate, and if you dress like a pirate you get a free dozen!! Hmmm, Chase is going to be a pirate for Halloween...I wonder if he wears his costume he would get a free dozen donuts?!?!?

I was recently given the chance to try the Oral-B Professional Precision 1000 toothbrush. I was using the Sonicare Flexcare toothbrush, which I liked but was having some issues with. It seems I am always trying things to make my teeth feel more "healthy". I put up my Sonicare and after the Oral-B was charged I gave it a whirl. My first reaction: "WOW!" The power of this toothbrush was amazing!! And yet it wasn't so powerful that it hurt. I could really feel the bristles getting a good, deep clean. I had noticed with my Sonicare, if I appiled the tinniest bit of pressure to my teeth when brushing the head would stop working all together. Not the case with the Oral-B! Even when applying moderate pressure (just to test it out more), the head kept spinning and was still gentle! After brushing, I could really feel the difference in my teeth. They haven't feel so smooth and clean in a very long time!! Even when running my tongue across my teeth I could feel how smooth they were. I've also noticed my teeth (and whole mouth, for that matter!) feel clean and healthy alot longer during the day, and when I wake in the mornings my mouth doesn't have that nasty, icky feeling it sometimes gets when I wake up.

After using the Oral-B for a few weeks I can honestly say my teeth have never felt so healthy!  I love how powerful it is, and yet gentle on my teeth and gums. I also love how the clean feeling lasts so much longer than it did with my old brush. I am now an Oral-B brush user for life!

To find out more about the Oral-B Professional Precision 1000, you can visit there website here. You can also visit the Twitter and Facebook pages out as well. Also, Oral-B is offering a $20 mail-in rebate on select power toothbrushes July 1 through September 30, 2012. Just visit their site for more information.

Gone are the days

....where I could give Chase mix-matched socks to wear. This morning we had a wonderful conversation about socks and how they have to match. Doesn't this child know how hard it is to keep up with socks?!? And his are still so small, they are even easier to lose than regular socks! Plus, no one would see them to notice they didn't match, so why worry about it?!?!? Needless to say, after lots of digging and hunting I finally found a pair that matched....and then I get this:

Me: "Here you go babe, socks that match...."
Chase: "I not BABE, I CHASE!"

- Christmas Search and Find book/Yardsellr (Ty will LOVE this, as he loves I Spy and just about any search and find book he sees!! Thinking about letting him open it on Christmas Eve...or maybe a few days before.....)

**Ok, so it pays to read!! I read the insert that came with the bag and it said it was a gift for being a subscriber to Latina Magazine!! (I won the subscription a few months ago but thought I had declined it, that is, until I got an issue in the mail) Thank you Latina Magazine!!!

InboxDollars and SendEarnings

A few years ago I had signed up for a site where you earn money for doing surveys, clicking on links, signing up for things and also for just clicking links in the emails they send. It was InboxDollars. I liked it, but I was having computer issues (had dial-up and a really slow computer) so I just let my account go. Recently I decided to give it a shot again and it is SO easy to earn cash! Granted it can take awhile to have the money add up (cash out is $30) but for what little bit of work you have to do it is worth it! I mean don't get me wrong, you can go gung ho and make quite a bit of money quickly, but some of the offers require a credit card. But, if you were going to do something along the lines of the offer anyway (like research car insurance or sign up for certain sites) then the points can add up quickly. They also send emails where they pay you just to read the email. (and it may only be .01-.02 for each email, but it does add up over time!) They also have a feature where if you do a search through their search engine you can earn money for that as well. Plus you earn when your friends sign up under your referral link.

If you are interested, here is my referral link to sign up:

You get $5 just for signing up! Now, as I said they do send emails from time to time so I would suggest using an email that is just for doing sites like this.

Also, there is another site that is EXACTLY the InboxDollars and it is called SendEarnings. Again, it works exactly like InboxDollars and is also just as easy to earn cash. Here is my refferal link for them:

Again, you won't make a ton of money but it does add up over time....and with Christmas coming any little bit will help!!
