My mother and I went to “Wine & Canvas” last night, which is where you drink and learn to paint.  I’m already really good at the first thing, but I’m not much of a painter, so I figured I could use a class. Our assigned project for the evening was a pair of flip flops [&

You paint better after drinking than I do sober and properly caffeinated. and who doesn't like labradoodles better than flip-flops? C'mon!

New humor blog post: Why ditzy girls will survive the zombie apocalypse (though it depends heavily on the cuteness of squirrels...) http://www.amyvansant.com/why-ditzy-girls-will-survive-the-zombie-apocalypse-maybe/ 
Turns out I’m kind of ditzy. I’m not saying that to brag. I know it is a thing sometimes for girls to exclaim how featherbrained they are and then titter, pearly-whites flashing, eyes flirty. I hate that.  Being flighty isn’t anything to be proud of, but it isn’t the end of

Humor Post: What do you get the parents with everything? Unleash Balloonageddon!
What do you get the parents who have everything? Do they have balloons hidden all over their house? Some with faces? I didn’t think so. For my parent’s 50th I sneaked into their home with the intention of hanging streamers and then filling their small guest bathroom with balloons so when

We have a fox in the neighborhood now. Share our joy...with the horrifying sounds of a pterodactyl stabbing a woman to death!
My neighborhood, which is already a wild kingdom, has attracted a pair of foxes. The bait was probably the people down the street who keeps chickens. Er…I mean kept chickens. Rest their little chicken souls. At first their appearance was adorable (to me, not so much the chickens). We cau

Guess who has a new novel out! (get a free copy for a limited time…) This is yet a new series (I swear I’m working on Angeli 2 and then Stalky 2 next – I will stop starting new series for a while…) The Pineapple Port series is about a girl who grew up in […]

Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Works home-thumb-custom-whitening-traysWhen I was offered a free Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit, I was undecided. My husband is the white teeth freak. And you can’t throw a stone without hitting a package of whitening strips these days. There are also dentist office options like Zoom that, while expensive ($600ish), get the whole over-time whitening process finished in about an hour. For Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening, I would also have to make a mold of my teeth, have soft plastic trays made and sent to me, and then walk around with solution in them, pressed against my teeth. But I checked my teeth in the mirror, and as a coffee and wine aficionado (not together), realized maybe I could use some whitening. I decided to give it a try. Everything I needed came in the Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening kit (except the white teeth seen in the picture and the clear plastic molds which are sent to you after you make an impression of your teeth). The teeth molding process was easy. I rubbed together two putties that were sent to me in the whitening kit. They were two different colors, and when mixed together, they activated and began to harden. I pretended it was explosive putty and threw a tiny bit on the ground and made explosion noises. That was fun. The dog didn’t think it was that funny, though. Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Ok, so I take crappy photos, but this is before, worrisome string-cheese effect, and then happily whiter. I put the putty into blue trays and clamped my teeth into them to make impressions. I let the impressions harden for an hour or so, and then mailed them back to Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening in the envelope provided. Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening and Sensitive Teeth Less than a week later my rubbery teeth condoms arrived. I went back to the Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit and filled them with whitening gel. Also in the box were tubes of desensitizing gel, which I really thought I should use first. I had tried Zoom before, and I’d been in agonizing pain for days afterwards. Whitening strips often left my teeth sensitive as well. I sent an email to the rep from Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening and told him about my plan to desensitize first. He said to try it without using the desensitizing gel. He said I could always go back and use it afterwards if my teeth hurt. I trusted him. You can wear the whitening gel-filled trays anywhere from 20 minutes to 3 hours. I wore them a good hour and a half before my gums felt a little irritated and frankly, I was tired of drooling. I checked the results and at first, I thought I had left some gel on my teeth. It looked like I’d been eating string cheese all day. That’s when I realized my teeth had whitened unevenly; it looked like I had white gunk all over my teeth. I vowed not to freak out and went back to work for an hour. When I checked back, my teeth were even again. And…definitely whiter! That’s when I realized that my teeth didn’t hurt. Any gum irritation had also faded along with the mottling. All in all, the whole thing had been painless, and now I had the trays and a ton of gel left over to use whenever I thought the old choppers could use some sprucing up. All and all, I don’t have any complaints and I was happy with the results. I’m not the greatest photographer in the world, but the results above are after just one use. The photos on the Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening site are a little suspect – you don’t have to be a Photoshop genius to figure out that the chin and lips of the people in the examples are brighter in the “after” photos as well. But I can tell you, it really does work. I’m going to use it a few more times until my teeth are so white people hardly even notice the lightning bolt scar on my forehead. Stupid muggles. You can get it at the Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening site for $179 – usually $179. This product is apparently the same thing you can get at dentists’ offices for more like $500. What a bargain!

Called at 7:30 on a Sunday and Donny Savoy showed up in Annapolis 1 hour later and had it fixed in 10 minutes. I will never call anyone else!

Good sushi, whimsical presentations, inventive rolls, eager to please staff. What more do you need? Located in a tiny strip mall behind the CVS off of Riva Road you might never notice Katana, but Annapolis' newest sushi restaurant (who knew we needed ANOTHER one!) deserves your attention. We went twice during opening week and while they don't have everything on the menu yet (as of Aug 20th, 2009), what we have had has been very good. Due to the location you can have the place almost to yourself for a while (sorry Joss, love ya but I hate sitting on top of the couple next to me...), so now is the time to go and feel like the emperor!

Friendly, informative service when you're making your decision and once you do buy, the installation was quick and professional. Always there to answer any questions that pop up about taking care of the tub afterwards,too!
