Colgate® Optic White® Toothpaste

images-12

Colgate® has always been the Toothpaste of choice for our family. We trust the brand and their products. When I received the new Colgate® Optic White® Toothpaste in the mail, I was excited to try it out and see how the results would work for me. Let me tell you, after using it for almost a week, results are clear to see! In fact I noticed brighter teeth in 3 days! The toothpaste itself smelled and tasted great. My teeth felt fresh and looked pearly white in no time. It really is dazzle without the hassle! It’s so nice to get a noticeably whiter smile without going to the dentist or spending tons of money.

IMG_7340

Recently, I had the opportunity to shop via Peapod in my yoga pants, from my couch. Need I say more? 🙂  Peapod is an online grocery shopping system for Giant. You do all of your shopping online and Peapod will deliver it to your door, or you can pick it up. I don’t know about you, but anything that saves me from taking all three of my children and my ginormous shopping list to the store is a beautiful thing! This is a great service for the busy family trying to spend less time running errands, and more time together.

My family and I had a great time at this year’s Prince William County Fair! It is hard not to enjoy a beautiful summer night, filled with the laughter of those around you. My family and I loved indulging in some fried oreos and watching our kids laugh and squeal in delight as they rode traditional fair rides. There was something for all of us to do and take part in. The magic show and animals were also a huge hit with my family! Fun rides, tasty treats, amusing shows, great local vendors, what’s not to love?! If you get the chance to go, please do. Below is some information to help you plan ahead.

SweetLeaf Water Drops

IMG_7295

Do you ever find it hard to consume your 8 glasses of water a day? I know I sure do! I love to drink tea, soda, and coffee, but when it comes to water, I am always looking for ways to jazz it up. I love adding a lemon or a lime or using fruit infused water bottles, but that can get tiring and you can’t always have those items with you on the go. Thanks to SweetLeaf® and Moms Meet, I found a simple, easy way to give my water more flavor!

SweetLeaf® Water Drops™ are natural, convenient, sugar-free and gluten-free water enhancers. You squirt into water and enjoy the award-winning flavor. The best part is these have zero calories, zero carbs, non-glycemic response and NO artificial sweeteners. That’s right, nothing fake, all natural! Finally, a better alternative to soda and sugar filled drinks!

The Capital Wheel

My family and I love the National Harbor. It is a frequent hangout spot for us. There are so many great shops and restaurants at the Harbor and one wheely cool attraction 🙂 This past weekend my family and I ventured up into the 180′ tall wheel that takes residence at the National Harbor and took in the breathtaking view! It is a must see for the whole family. You feel as though you are slowly gliding through the air, round and round as you take in the sights. From the wheel you can see the Washington Monument, U.S. Capitol, Alexandria, Prince George’s County, and of course the magnificent harbor. My kids were pointing out all the cool things they noticed during our ride.

Last night my family and I entered the big white tent that currently resides at Tyson’s Corner Center. We quickly discovered this is not your average play, or circus tent for that matter. This spectacular show takes place in a 360 tent with an automated set and computer generated imagery. It is like a live action 3D show! To say my family and I were blown away is an understatement.

I had the privilege of attending the Inside Out All Access Event this past Tuesday night. If you are going to see 1 movie this summer with your family, make it this one!

First let me tell you how awesome of a job that Fathom Events does at putting fun events like this together! We felt so special wearing our exclusive lanyards all night 🙂 Not to mention sitting in

the comfiest recliners at Regal Cinemas. We felt like we were getting the star treatment, and we were, everyone in that theater was! Seeing a movie before it comes out is always fun, but getting exclusive gear to go with it is even better! Bravo to Fathom Events and Regal Cinemas! If you get a chance to attend a Fathom Event at a Regal Cinema, do! You will not regret it!

modt-quest1-1

A quick meal, little preparation, wholesome and delicious! Sound like a meal you and your family would gobble up? Let’s face it, we all have that night of the week where going through the drive-thru or ramen noodles sounds like the best choice. A quick, healthier solution is waiting at a grocery store near you. Modern Table Meals understand  just that and have produced a solution to the busy week night dinner scramble. At Modern Table Meals, they believe in feeding wholesome foods to your families. They also believe healthy food can be yummy, too!

So what is Modern Table Meals? It is a pasta meal kit! Everything you need is in the bag: bean-based pastas, dried veggies, sauce, and seasoning so you can customize the flavor.
