Something to Smile About!

Me+Teddy (1 of 1)

My third baby (Teddy) was born at the end of September and he has brought so much love and joy to my family! He is a super happy baby and I can’t help but smile when I look at him. He has completed our family in every way. But adding another child to our crew has definitely not been easy! In fact, it has been extremely challenging in many ways. I’m just having to figure out how to prioritize, balance, and do things a bit differently now that my life is even more crazy busy.

One thing that is especially hard is making time for myself. But I’ve realized that I can be the best mother to my kids if I make sure to fill up my own tank. So, I try to get to the gym at least a few times a week, get a mani-pedi or massage every now and then, and most recently I made time to whiten my teeth. When I was pregnant with Teddy, I started to feel like my teeth needed brightening after years of running on coffee! Now that I’m out of the newborn haze I felt like I could dedicate some time to make that happen. I am really happy with my results after using the Smile Brilliant teeth whitening system.

The system was super easy to use! After I received the kit in the mail, I made my impressions using the paste which only took about 15 minutes. Then I placed them in the prepaid envelope and mailed them back to Smile Brilliant. The lab then created my trays using an exact model of my teeth from the impressions. Once I received the customized trays, I began the whitening process – about 45 minutes with the whitening gel followed by 20 minutes with the desensitizing gel. I completed about 10 treatments to get my pearly whites!

How to Whiten Your Teeth



Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom – Giveaway + Discount Code for Teacher Gifts!

StorefrontSign (1 of 1)

I really can’t believe that the school year is almost over! Most local schools are all wrapping up within the next 3 weeks. I’m sure I’m not the only mom who feels like the year flew by! And this was just our first year with a Kindergartner, so I have a feeling it will only get faster from here on. Thankfully we were blessed with amazing teachers and I really want them to know how much we appreciate them. So for our end-of-year teacher gifts we went to Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom in North Bethesda, MD.

Clarastorefront (1 of 1)

Seasons Taproom is a small, family owned business located in the Pike & Rose neighborhood in Bethesda. If you haven’t been yet, I highly recommend a visit soon! They also have locations in Annapolis, Bethlehem, PA, Lancaster, PA, and Morristown, NJ. If you love cooking, then you will be in heaven at this store and if cooking isn’t your thing, you will still be able to pick out the perfect gifts for your kids teachers!

Store1 (1 of 1)

The store is beautiful – sparkling clean and well organized. You are encouraged to sample all the many flavors of olive oils and vinegars. Some of the different flavors of olive oils are Blood Orange Fused, Cayenne Chili Fused, Lemon Fused, Rosemary Fused, and Garlic Infused. These are just a few – there are many, many more unique flavors. Seasons also carries whole fruit balsamic vinegars, dark balsamic vinegars, white balsamic vinegars, and wine vinegars.

OliveOils (1 of 1)

Seasons carefully selects the olive growers that they work with to ensure they are only selling a fresh, quality product. They also directly import their products to deliver a high quality product at a low price. I will never again buy my olive oil from the grocery store after tasting Seasons oils! There is such a huge difference in the taste and quality and the price is comparable to the local grocery store.

OliveOils1 (1 of 1)

The manager at the Bethesda store is Lamia and she is so incredibly knowledgeable about all the products they sell. If you have any questions at all, she will be able to answer them! When my girls and I visited the store to pick out their teacher gifts, Lamia first had us tell her about each of the teachers. Then she helped us select an appropriate gift for each of them. For the teachers who enjoy cooking, we selected a bottle of olive oil and a bottle of balsamic vinegar. For another teacher who doesn’t particularly like cooking but has kids to feed, we selected a gourmet pasta and a sauce to go along with it for a quick and easy meal. And for one of my daughters preschool teachers we chose an olive oil lotion and soap. We had 5 teachers to buy for this year and we were able to get each of them a nice gift without breaking the bank. My girls are so excited to give them to their teachers and I think they will love what we picked out!
