• Smile!

    July 1, 2010

    Hello! I hope you have a smile on your face this morning! :mrgreen:

    First things first: breakfast! I enjoyed some yummy Overnight Oats in a Jar (OOIAJ) made with old-fashioned oats, Mad Hectic oatmeal, ground flaxseed meal, dried cranberries, walnuts, vanilla soy milk, and, of course, lots of Barney Butter from the jar.


    Mmmmm… best breakfast ever! πŸ˜€


    I also enjoyed some S’mores iced coffee with soy milk along with my OOIAJ.


    I hope you’re enjoying your morning so far, but if you woke up on the wrong side of the bed and need a little pick-me-up, I’m pretty sure this video of Murphy doing “elephant butt” will put a smile on your face. I can’t watch it without cracking up! Smiling is a sure thing with this video! πŸ˜€

    Ok, now that’s you’re smiling, let’s talk about teeth! :mrgreen:

    This might sound weird, but I am sort of obsessed with my teeth. I am genetically blessed cursed with bad teeth, so I take really good care of them. I never miss a dentist appointment, I brush three times a day, and floss every night before bed. Even still, pretty much every single tooth in my mouth has a cavity. πŸ˜• I also haveΒ two porcelain crowns, which later required aΒ minor in-office surgery. I can only imagine how terrible my teeth would be if I didn’t obsessively take care of them!

    A long time ago, my dentist recommended that I use an electric toothbrush instead a regular manual one. Electric tooth brushes remove more plaque, which helps prevent gingivitis, and clean deep between teeth and along the gum line. I also brush too hard when I use a manual toothbrush, which upsets my gums, so I’ve used an electric toothbrush for many years now.

    Awhile back, the nice people P&G and MS&L sent me the Oral-B ProfessionalCare 1000 electric toothbrush to review on CNC. I’m already a fan of electric toothbrushes, so I was more than happy to give it a whirl. Plus, my current toothbrush was old and sort of nasty.Β The Oral-B ProfessionalCare 1000 is a great electric toothbrush. It left my teeth feeling nice and clean and it’s not a noisy as my previous toothbrush, so I like it.

    Giveaway time!!! πŸ˜€

    I know that I’m not the only one who wants healthy teeth, so here’s your chance to win the Oral-B Professional Care 1000 electric toothbrush!!! Just leave a comment on this post about something or someone who makes you smile.Β I will randomly pick a winner tomorrow morning.

    Good luck! :mrgreen:

    P.S. If you read my post about my visit to the conventional dairy farm, you know there was a great conversation in the comment section that followed. Nancy of The Wife of a Dairy Man wrote a wonderful post clearing up some of the confusion around organic and conventional dairy farming. Be sure to check it out!

    Looking at pictures from past vacations (and lots of good times!) never fails to bring a huge grin to my face. Reminiscing is the best!

    My cat Tuppence makes me smile. I got her from a pet rescue centre 2 months ago and she was so frightened that she hid under the bath and only came out when she had to. It’s taken a long time but now she plays in front of me and has started to sit on the chair next to me, but I’m not allowed to stroke her yet. Soon I hope but her progress still makes me smile.
