I’m dreaming of a white Christmas. 

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetAnd by white, I mean pearly white shiny smile. I used to pride myself on my sparkly white teeth, but due to increased coffee consumption and decreased me time, my shiny white smile has since faded to an interesting apartment beige like color. I’ve never been one for smiling with my teeth… It’s usually because of my ptsd from braces, but lately I’ve been increasingly more bummed out by my less than brilliant smile… Boo.

fullsizerenderEnter Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening. Everything you need sent directly to your front door. Ummmm YES. YES. I definitely think I will. The kit arrives with all your goodies, I am using the sensitive kit. Everything you need to make molds of your teefs, Rocco’s preferred pronunciation. You simply mix the catalyst paste and the base together until they are a solid blue, pop goop in the tray, and pop in your mouth. I have to admit, I was sweating bullets, but they give you enough goop to do 3 impressions incase you jack one up. And it’s really pretty easy. Throw those in the mail and shortly thereafter your perfectly fitted whitening retainers are in your hands. Do we see a trend?!? EASY. And I when you’re a mom. Nothing seems easy. This is ACTUALLY pretty stinking easy!  Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

All I want for Christmas is…

I’ve been thinking of a clever title for this post for 2 and a half hours. I’m giving up… it’s official I’ve lost all brain capacity. Between 2 kids and Hallmark Christmas movies I’m dumber than ever. It’s okay. I’ve come to terms with it. Moving on. Calling all moms. This is the definitive list of all the things that you want this Christmas. Clueless dads, friends, family. These are things that the preggo or new mama needs/wants in her life even if she doesn’t know it. Seriously, I wear most of these goodies daily!!!

These leggings keep things right where you want them, you feel like a million bucks in these suckers. I want like 20 more pairs to wear them every single day. Seriously. And anyone who says leggings aren’t pants, isn’t a real friend. Time to break up. You don’t need that negativity in your life. I also love the original belly bandit!! More on this in a post soon!
