Tooth Tunes a Fun Way to Brush


School is coming up fast and we want our kids to look their best and they wanna look their best so what better than with Tooth Tunes.

Arm & Hammer Tooth Tunes are a fun way to wake up and jam while brushing your teeth. I like how many songs there are to choose from I got "We will rock you" by Queen,  Kids Bop I love it and "Rock n Roll All Night" by Kiss, my kids wake up and fight over the sink on who gets to brush first now.



The kids really like the Tooth Tunes that they even brush before bed. So now I went from clean kids to really clean because they brush both day and night just because they like to jam out. Each Arm & Hammer Tooth Tune comes in soft head and plays 2 full minutes of music. Thanks to the Tooth Tune toothbrushes my kids also know how long to brush the top and bottom of their teeth when the song is over they know they did a good brushing.

You can pick up Tooth Tunes at your local retail stores. They make for a great back to school gift as well. See which your child would like by clicking here.

Alabama a Place Worth Checking Out...............Giveaway

Summer is almost done but it doesn't mean you still can't take a vacation and when thinking about where you wanna go this year why not think Alabama. As the band Lynyrd Skynyrd says Sweet Home Alabama where the skies are blue.

Alabama is a beautiful state full of live and country. Montgomery, Alabama is the capital of the state, if you need your city life this is where you wanna be. Montgomery has a lot of new building which make up the city as well as older building which really make for a awesome night scene.


If your into Collage Football you know about Auburn, and Tuscaloosa, home of two of the top rated teams in collage football the Crimson Tide Elephants and Auburn Tigers two teams which dominate often in the Collage bowls. If you live in the state you know how divided it is and each team has much supported love from the states people. 

When you think of Alabama what else comes to mind? For me I think country, lots of streams, lakes, and just nature. You can travel throughout the state and find all kinds of beauty like the Monte Sano State Park in Birmingham, Alabama. Monte Sano, Spanish for “Mountain of Health,” rises more than 1,600 feet above sea level. The mountain has attracted visitors since the mid 1820’s with the establishment of the town of Viduta, a derivative of the Spanish word “Vida,” meaning life.  Viduta was home to a sanatorium and a hotel resort, Hotel Monte Sano, which opened its doors in 1887 and closed in the early 1900s due to a declining economy. It is truly a place to capture nature at its best. It cost $2 per person during normal days and $3 during holidays. 

Did you know Alabama has beaches? Since I live in Florida I often forget that other places besides here and California have beaches even though a lot of the country does I just don't think about it since we are like known for ours. But come to find out Alabama has some pretty nice Golf beaches of their own. Orange Beach is a nice family friendly beach which has plenty of ocean for all. It especially has a nice sunset : )


Next time you think of a vacation why not think Alabama.

When did...............

(My little rant its all over the place but I did it release some building stress and figure hey why not)

We as humans become so sad? I mean I was taught so many things yet somehow things have changed and its not for the greater good.

Last night I was watching tv and it was late you know the hours when all the "Live" links, chats and so on come on. So one basically just got to the point which was Ashley Madison which they had a bunch of married men signing "I am looking for someone other than my wife"...................WOW I was speechless! I mean okay we know most people who do that are having a affair but you don't wanna hear about it, because its not right, if your gonna do that don't get married. I mean marriage seems to be a joke now a days. I know growing up ( I am 30 now) divorce was starting to be more heard of and now its like higher than marriage itself.

I had cheated on my husband it was horrible, I was lonely and had 3 kids before the age of 25? so I was still young but yet I was married with 3 kids. My husband never would come home after I would beg and so on he would hang out at his parents and play video games and whatever til late hours of night if he would even show up so I said screw it and did what I did. Long story short finally when I came out and had told him what I had did, (only hoping he would admit to doing the same) we had a huge falling out. I thought for sure things were over. Somehow we pulled through and ended up staying together. Now I face him not trusting me breathing down my back and going through everything in my life as if I am cheating on him again. I promise I learned my lesson and it was not worth it. I mean if you get to this point talk it out first and if you can't come to some agreement get a divorce, because if you think you might cheat or if you did cheat its gonna come out and its sooooooooooooo not worth it. It makes the marriage stronger, yet also the trust more harder.

Another fun thing is I know no matter where I was if a ambulance was coming down the road or a firetruck was coming down the road you would move over now we all kinda lay on breaks but stay in our lanes and keep going. What has changed that we just don't care to move out of the way, I can say personally I think well I am not in the way, followed with if I do, do what is right will the person behind me let me back on the road? Why should I think that???

Fun fact did you know most people would choose their phone over sex? That's nuts to think that we are so dependent on cell phones and computers. I know Charley was a hard reality check. We had no power for a week, which is nothing compared to some but simple things like driving on the road without lights other than your headlights. I know a very busy area me and my sister in law came up on and only knew where we were because of the railroad tracks but everything was so different because there was no lights. Cell phones were hit or miss a lot of us lined up in front of pay phones to make a call to friends and family to say we are okay. Which I used to know EVEREYONES phone number now I am lucky if I know my own. Why because I have a sim card which keeps all that information for me.

I was watching a thing on History about how the government spys on us 24/7. Not sure if you had seen on the news a few months back of someone who hacked a baby monitor and was calling the baby names and so on through the monitor but a lot of our live is not so secret anymore. Almost all laptops now a days have  the built in feature of a webcam, did you know that someone could be watching even if the light is not on? They can turn it on whenever they want, same with cells, you think having a thumb print to get in your phone is great, yeah sounds neat until you think that they are using it to document you.

It just blows my mind how we think we are advancing but really we are not. I challenge you to go without your phone for a week. I have done it not by choice I just didn't have the means to pay for the bill so I went without and it seriously felt like I was going through withdraw because I couldn't text my friend to say omg I just had a thought or call my mom to say Hi because it was quite, but after the week went by I realized I wasn't as stressed and why because I was not on call 24/7 so when I was in my car no one could call me, or text me or whatever I had no means of communication and it was nice. I bet we as humans have much more health issues and high blood pressure than any other generation before us and why because we are always accessible.

Anyhow this is my blog and my personal little rant I like to write things out and why not share when I do. Its a great way to let lose of stress for me personally I hope you don't hate me for who I am or what I right, I know we all have our own opinions and this is mine : )
