BrytonPick Review


- BrytonPick makes cleaning between teeth easy, fast and discreet
- Designed, developed and tested by dental professionals
- Solution for on-the-go alternative for those that are unable to floss
- Made of flexible stainless steel and plastic holder
- Blunt cleaning edges are as thin as the finest floss (0.0019")
- Re-usable up to 30 days (germ resistant stainless steel)
- Cleanse with napkin or water. Store in it's carry pouch

I recently had the opportunity to test out a BrytonPick. While I must admit, I was a bit skeeved by re-usable floss, I am presently surprised by how well it worked and came in handy. It does take some getting used to and I cut my gum a little bit the first time. Ouchie! But once I was used to it, it was great. Now it hasn't replaced my floss completely, but it's perfect for those times when you don't have any floss handy and something is stuck between your teeth. I definitely reccomend it for those in opportune momments.

If you'd like to purchase, please do so here.

Smile With Me Saturday Blog Hop - Week 10!!!











First off, smile with me :) You made it through another week and deserve a big smile. You've got the whole weekend ahead of you so make it a good one!


This week it's Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse!!




Magical Mouse Schoolhouse


I asked Jodi a few questions about herself and her blog so you could get to know a little bit about her.

1) When did you first start blogging? Why?

I first started blogging in 2008 when I began freelance editing. Magical Mouse Schoolhouse launched about a year-and-a-half later when a friend noticed there were no blogs to let homeschoolers know how to incorporate Disney entertainment into lesson plans.

2) What's your favorite part about blog hopping?
My favorite part about blog hopping is discovering all the new and interesting ideas people are writing about. I have also made some wonderful new friends!

3) What's your favorite hobby?
Reading. I love to read. That's one thing I enjoy about freelance editing: I get to read books before the public does! And, of course, blog hopping provides a lot of new material too.

4) Who's your role model?  
That's a tough question! I'm going to have to name more than one person. My friend Carol Beth Scott is amazingly creative and has overcome huge obstacles to become a courageous, successful woman. My friend Brenna Stull sets high standards for me as to how to be a godly wife and mother. And I greatly admire my husband Richard Whisenhunt for his unflinching love and devotion to us, his family.

Smile With Me Saturday Blog Hop - Week 9!!!





First off, smile with me :) You made it through another week and deserve a big smile. You've got the whole weekend ahead of you so make it a good one!

This week it's Cindy from For One Another!!

I asked Cindy a few questions about herself and her blog so you could get to know a little bit about her. 
1) When did you first start blogging? Why?
I started blogging in September 2010. Years ago I had a dream of starting a magazine called "For One Another".  I wanted it to be a resource of encouragement to others, mostly home schoolers. That never happened.  Until one day  I saw a friend's blog and asked her how to get started. I'm still working towards making it what I dreamed my magazine would be.  Reviewing products has been an added bonus.  I hope to get more involved in reviewing home school products!

2) What's your favorite part about blog hopping?
My favorite part of blog hopping is seeing all the great blogs I probably wouldn't have found otherwise.  

3) What's your favorite hobby?
 I've done a few "crafty" things, but nothing that I would  consider a hobby.  I like to read when I have time. So I'd say blogging is now my hobby as I MAKE time everyday to blog. Sometimes TOO much time :)
4) Who's your role model? 
I don't have a role model.  There are several people in my life with whom I would like to possess a certain quality of theirs, but there is not one person that I would consider a role model.  Actually the only person that possesses every quality I wish I had is Jesus!

A Dog's Purpose Review and Giveaway

A Dog's Purpose is told in first person from the dog's point of view. It was truly fantastic and I simply could not put it down.

The story begins with "Toby" discovering his new life as the puppy of a stray. He learns about feeding and how to wrestle his brother and sister. Soon enough, he is captured by a dog hoarder and kept in "the yard" When the women is caught by the authorities Toby is taken to the pound where he is deemed unadoptable. Sadly, he is euthanized. He then wakes up in a puppy mill where he is a puppy all over again. He remembers a few facts from his previous life which allows him to escape the puppy mill, but he is then captured by a man who nearly kills him by locking him in the extreme heat of the truck. Toby is rescued by a woman and then becomes "Bailey", Ethan's beloved pet. The story doesn't stop there, but you'll have to buy it, or WIN IT, to read more :)

I am so in love with this book. It made me look at my adorable border collie, Jetta, a bit differently. After reading the book I decided that maybe Jetta doesn't understand exactly what I'm saying, the way I'm saying it. I'm sure she has a different interpretation of what I'm doing or saying. A Dog's Purpose also provided me with some comfort in knowing that my childhood pet, Cosmo, may still be living though not with me. I like the idea of thinking that he has a purpose and being with me and my family was just a pit stop in his ultimate destination. I'm delighted to be a part of that journey :)

And now for the GIVEAWAY!

One of you will win a copy of A Dog's Purpose to enjoy!

Smile With Me Saturday Blog Hop - Week 8!!!






First off, smile with me :) You made it through another week and deserve a big smile. You've got the whole weekend ahead of you so make it a good one!

This week it's Sarah from Modern Country Style!!





I asked Sarah a few questions about herself and her blog so you could get to know a little bit about her.

1) When did you first start blogging? Why?
I first began Modern Country Style in May of this year because we're renovating our house and I wanted a place to record the whole process and to share inspiration images and create gorgeous crafts too!

It's why I chose my header, which says Modern Country Style: Renovation, Creation, Inspiration.... I didn't want to just be a design blog or just be a craft blog. I hope readers will like it that I try to combine the best of both worlds!!

Style-wise, I love Modern Country (how did you guess?!): gorgeous, pared-back interiors infused with the warmth of Country.


2) What's your favorite part about blog hopping?
I love it when I'm blog hopping and I see a new blog to completely fall in love with. Isn't it the best feelin? I'm a totally unrepentant stalker!!! :-)

3) What's your favorite hobby?
Oooh, my favourite hobby. That's so tricky to choose just one!! I do love blogging....not just writing Modern Country Style but meeting new friends, and seeing other people's ideas....okay, so now we're back to my stalking habits!!

4) Who's your role model?
My role model?...wow, these are probing questions!! I think I would choose my mum. She's been so supportive of everything I do, encouraging in the good and sympathizing in the bad. I hope I can be like that to my children as they get bigger.

Do come over to Modern Country Style and stop for a chat and tell me about YOUR blog! I'd love to get to know you better!

NYC at Christmas time makes me :)


Last weekend I hopped a train from Philly to my 2nd favorite city... NYC! I just love NYC at Christmas time :)


Yes that is what it looks like. Times Square restrooms sponsored by Charmin. If you are in the area, you must stop in! They have fabulous restrooms which are cleaned in between users. There's a stage to do the potty dance! And there's even an enormous potty for you to sit on and get your picture taken. Sounds crazy right??? Go see it for yourself!







This is Boyfriend and I under the tree in Bryant Park. If you go to NYC at Christmas time you have to check out Bryant Park. There's ice skating and fabulous little Christmas shops to take all of your money :)

No trip to NYC is complete without a stop in the M&M store in Times Square! This is my mom, sister and I in front of the big yellow M&M!

And this is Boyfriend and I in front of the tree at Rockefeller Center. Rockefeller Center is so magical to me and is just the ticket to get me in the Christmas spirit :)

Have you ever been to NYC at Christmas? What does it take to get you in the Christmas spirit?

Glee Gum Make Your Own Chocolate Kit - Giveaway

In 1992, the concept for Verve was born when we visited an economically depressed chicle-producing community in Northern Guatemala. Up until then, we had never really thought about how chewing gum was made. When we realized its origins, we learned that prior to the synthetic resins, chicle was the basis of the entire industry. Our goal was to support chicle-harvesting by purchasing chicle. With this goal in mind, Verve was born, and with it our first and most popular product, the Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit.
Today, Verve provides a sustainable source of income for those communities while simultaneously offering fun, educational, and environmentally friendly activities for kids.

Our pioneering Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit has captivated the imaginations of thousands of children while helping them to learn more about the world around them. They are often used in classrooms where students are studying rain forest ecology, the history of food production, the chemistry of cooking, and the interconnections in our global community.

Verve sent me a few samples of Glee Gum and a Make Your Own Chocolate Kit. The gum had wonderful flavor, but seemed to dissipate rather quickly. The Make Your Own Chocolate Kit on the other hand, quickly became a girl’s best friend!

Mixing elements of chemistry with world culture and history, this delicious kit contains everything you'll need to make 8 ounces of dark chocolate. Can be made on the stove or with a microwave - adult supervision is recommended! Great for class room activities, scout troops, birthday parties, home school, or after school. Makes a great gift for kids (ages 8 & up)!
Inside each Make Your Own Chocolate Kits you'll find: organic cocoa butter, cocoa powder, confectioner's sugar, starter crystals, a temperature indicator, paper candy liners, instructions, and the story of chocolate.
All you have to do is melt the cocoa butter, add the cocoa powder and sugar. Stir, stir, stir until it cools to the right temperature; add the starter crystals so that the chocolate "tempers," and enjoy delicious home-made chocolate from scratch! By the way, you also get some cacao beans - we thought you might like to taste a few. Each Chocolate Kit Makes 8 oz. of dark chocolate!

 

I love love love chocolate! I mean what girl doesn’t?? About a week or so ago I was having a serious chocolate craving. I remembered I had this Make Your Own Chocolate Kit to try out so I decided to give it a go! Not only is the chocolate making kit very educational to do with children or whomever, but you can completely make your own chocolate! I made various little chocolates. Some had crunched up pretzel pieces, some had peanut butter, some had marshmallow and some even had different rainbow sprinkles on top! SO FUN!

And now for the GIVEAWAY! One will win a Make your Own Chocolate Kit! **USA ONLY**
