Little updates

*The winner of my blogiversary giveaway is Kali! She chose an immersion blender (or money towards it) for her prize. Thanks to all who entered--it was fun to see your choices!

*If anyone is interested, I have a promotion code for $15 off of a $75 Lands' End order through May 31. Just e-mail me, and I'll send you the info. First come, first served.

*Thanks to The Millennial Housewife for honoring me with the Sunshine Award. If you live in IA, check out her blog, as she dishes up great deals in our state!

*As an update to my dental hygiene post, I wanted to let you know that I called around and made an appointment. Shockingly, the first available time at my chosen office is in September, but they put my name on the cancellation list in case. I've started (and pretty well kept) a flossing habit 2-3 times a week. While my kids are taking a bath is an easy time for me to remember to do it, and I'm starting small so I'll stick with it! Eric also scheduled a check-up, so I was glad my little post impacted someone else, as well! Anyone else have any updates in this regard?

Good job on the flossing routine! Have you ever tried a Waterpik? I recently started using one after I floss, and it makes my mouth feel a lot cleaner. According to my dentist it's not a substitute for flossing. But for me it is less 'icky' and quicker than flossing, so occasionally I will skip the floss and just use the Waterpik.

I also use a good electric toothbrush (Oral B Triumph). I'm usually all about simplicity and no gadgets, but for a dental-phobe like me they both have really helped me develop better dental habits.

Yay for Kali! :-)

I just have to let you know that I actually ended up having to cancel my dentist appt a few weeks ago because I had no childcare for the littles, and while they might've done OK, I didn't want to have any problems caused. Oh well, another appointment is in the works... My hubby just got two teeth drilled yesterday. :-)

Glad to hear your update! I like your idea of flossing while the littles are taking a bath...I'll have to try that too!

Have a great day Carrie!

Just took Luke and little Aubrey to the dentist today! Luke's 2nd appt. and Aubrey's 1st. Our family has been blessed with good teeth thankfully. But my problem is I absolutely can not go to the dentist while I am pregnant which has been a lot over the past 3 years. :-) Having the toothpaste in my mouth too long makes me sick..even just brushing at home, so I'm not brave enough to try it there.
