Halloween Candy Buy Back!

So I got a letter from one of the local dentists in town and I want to share the neat program they have.  They have a buy back on kids Halloween candy.  When a child 12 or under comes in on  November 1st they will pay your child $1 for every 1 pound of candy and they will get a new firefly flashing toothbrush!

So what will the Dentist do with all of the candy they buy??  The candy will be shipped overseas with the help of a local post office to our courageous troops while serving our country.    

Not only do they send the candy to our troops but they are also teaming up with a local food pantry and will match $1 per pound received!  AWESOME!    

"Global sugar consumption for kids increases by about 2 % annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year.  This means parents need to be more diligent right now more than ever before.  Too much candy can lead to weight gain, as well as cavities and other health problems.  In some cases, the wrong type of candy can also lead to broken teeth and damaged braces."

That is a great idea! My daughter always gets so much candy and really doesn't eat that much of it. My husband and I usually eat most of it or he takes it to work. I certainly don;t need to be doing that. lol Wish we had a local dentist that was doing that.

Happy Saturday!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
