Listerine Challenge. 21 Days Later

You know what I hate and have hated since I was a kid? Trips to the dentist, because regardless of what I did, my dentist always had a lot to say about the condition of my teeth. Luckily, these days we have many tools that were non-existent then.
Does it mean my kids are great at their dental hygiene

IN. MY. DREAMS.

Because playing computer games and watching TV is so much more important. That is why I thought it would be important for all of us to take the Listerine 21 Day Challenge

What is it about the cold season that makes us want the comfort food. What do you love? Potatoes? Pastas? Chili? Whatever it is, you know there is something out there, that makes your tummy all happy comfortable. However, when it comes a crowd of gluten sensitive people, we feel the right to enjoy our comfort food, but don’t feel the love when we start looking at the winter recipes. That is until now, because today we are happy to share with you the best classic Comfort dishes with a Gluten Free twist.

MY BABY HAS A COOL NEW RIDE

The next day after I had my beautiful baby-boy, I woke up to an exciting email – we are getting The new Urbini Emi Travel System! Great news considering that we gave away all the baby stuff years ago. I never owned a stroller system, because, based on my 7-year research, stroller systems was a typical rookie move – too heavy, not the best quality, and not maneuverable. However, the time has changed and many brands have entered the stroller market since I had my first child – I couldn’t wait to meet my new stroller.
