Ayers for sharing her journey and generous invitation to the launch party for her three beautiful books.&nbsp;</i><br /><br />Several years ago, I realized I wasn't okay. I was experiencing anxious thoughts and having nightmares, and old wounds I thought I'd buried were showing up in unexpected places.<br /><br />I made a commitment to myself to make things better. And silly me, I assumed that learning to meditate would do the trick just fine.<br /><br /><br />Meditation certainly helped, but it wasn't the cure-all I thought it would be. So I went on a journey of self-discovery and realized that I didn't like myself very much, especially my body. When I acknowledged her at all, it was to berate her for her wrongness. She was the wrong size and shape and weight and ability and look . . . and the list went on and on.<br /><br />I was horrified when I became aware of just how cruel I was to my body. I have two daughters (ages twelve and ten), and I would be heartbroken if they shamed their bodies the way I was shaming mine. But that’s what I was teaching them without even meaning to.<br /><br />I wanted to change my relationship with my body, and I needed something practical to do.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9X2_ZHdJGXY/XkYBsOr8_3I/AAAAAAAAGAk/6U5UyudJUMsyXargg6-1lpu7QWtLErPZwCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/Love%2BLetters_flat_cover.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: right; float: right; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1036" height="320" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9X2_ZHdJGXY/XkYBsOr8_3I/AAAAAAAAGAk/6U5UyudJUMsyXargg6-1lpu7QWtLErPZwCPcBGAYYCw/s320/Love%2BLetters_flat_cover.jpg" width="207" /></a></div>I've always enjoyed writing notes to people, and writing is how I process my thoughts and feelings. I decided I'd begin to write love notes to my body and all her parts as a daily journaling practice because it's awfully hard to hate something when you're sweet-talking it in a love note.<br /><br />Over the course of months, I wrote hundreds of love notes to my body parts from my crow's feet to my pinky toe. Sometimes my notes were full of love and gratitude. And sometimes they were full of pain and grief. Anger, even. But they were always a real conversation with my body.<br /><br />The transformation was liberating. Body parts I'd thought I hated, I now cherished. I appreciated my body in a way I'd never experienced. And while I still struggled to love some of my parts, I was finally able to accept all of them.<br /><br />One of the best parts of my transformation is the extra energy I now have to experience joy and be creative, energy that used to be spent on trying to make myself fit into society’s definition of “good enough.”'<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-EB__-QStQXE/XkYBscff5KI/AAAAAAAAGAo/Q-B1O0GSwvMwu3eNPMzdo1H-8XEIqaTlgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/Journal_flat_cover.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1237" height="320" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-EB__-QStQXE/XkYBscff5KI/AAAAAAAAGAo/Q-B1O0GSwvMwu3eNPMzdo1H-8XEIqaTlgCPcBGAYYCw/s320/Journal_flat_cover.jpg" width="247" /></a></div>Of course there are days when that mean little voice cranks up with the nastygrams again, days when I’ve taken an unflattering photo, had a yucky dressing-room experience, or just struggled with my reflection in the bathroom mirror. But those moments are less frequent now, and when that voice shows up, trying to make me feel ashamed of my body, I can usually catch her after just a few minutes and shush her. Because I’ve written so many love notes to my body, it’s the most natural thing to place my hands on my heart and send myself love.<br /><br />I’ve realized that decades of conditioning around what makes an “ideal” body is going to take time to unlearn. This process to appreciate my body exactly as she is will be a lifelong journey because she will continue to change as I age and experience life.<br /><br />I love the simplicity of writing love notes to my body, though, because it’s a practice I can revisit whenever and wherever I need to. And it’s a tool that my daughters now have to combat messages that tell them they are anything other than perfect, just as they are. I can’t silence the mean little voices in their minds, but I can teach them how to silence it themselves.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-uM4o3tgLNnU/XkYBSTxeAbI/AAAAAAAAGAU/rIokAjgx-08_FjKxDrdhYsP-ip4bIe8vwCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/empowered%2Bportraits_%2BNicole%2BAyers%2Bby%2BCass%2BBradley%2BFind%2BMy%2BFearless-87%2Bcopy.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1067" data-original-width="1600" height="212" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-uM4o3tgLNnU/XkYBSTxeAbI/AAAAAAAAGAU/rIokAjgx-08_FjKxDrdhYsP-ip4bIe8vwCPcBGAYYCw/s320/empowered%2Bportraits_%2BNicole%2BAyers%2Bby%2BCass%2BBradley%2BFind%2BMy%2BFearless-87%2Bcopy.jpg" width="320" /></a></div>Nicole C. Ayers has been playing with words as long as she can remember. While she's held many jobs in her life, including stints as a server, camp counselor, telemarketer, print shop lackey, bartender, and teacher, editing at Ayers Edits was her favorite, because she combined her love of reading with the fun of wordplay, until she added writer to this list. Now it would be hard to convince her there’s anything better than telling her own stories.<br /><br />Nicole has written three body-positive companion books (SPARK Publications, February 2020) about her journey to accept and love her body: <i>Love Notes to My Body; Love Letters to My Body: Writing My Way to (Self-)Love</i>; <i>Writing Your Way to (Self-)Love: A Guided Journal to Help You Love Your Body</i>, <i>One Part at a Time</i>. She is available for speaking engagements also.<br /><br />Nicole lives in South Carolina with her brilliant and brave daughters, her best friend and husband, a goofy dog, a long-suffering tortoise, and the occasional fish.<br /><br />Contact Nicole at <a href="http://www.nicolecayers.com/">www.nicolecayers.com</a> and connect with her on Instagram at @nicolecayers.<br /><br /><b><u>Launch Party Details&nbsp;</u></b><br />Love Notes Joyous Jubilee<br />Friday, February 21, 2020<br />1040 Angelica Lane,<br />Tega Cay, SC, 29708<br />7 p.m. - 9 p.m.<br /><br />What: Join Nicole C.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day,&nbsp; the follow-up to 2013’s hit Oscar®-winning Best Animated Feature, “Frozen,” comes home, with a sing-along version and all-new extras. “Frozen 2” bonus features include deleted scenes, deleted songs, Easter eggs, outtakes and a sing-along version with lyrics to the film’s forever-infectious songs. Extras invite viewers to go behind-the-scenes to hear personal, making-of stories from the “Frozen 2” cast and crew. Fans who bring the film home early on Digital will receive two exclusive extras: an interview with songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who won an Oscar® for Best Original Song (“Let It Go,” 2014) and wrote seven original songs for “Frozen 2,” and a deleted song titled “Unmeltable Me.”<u></u><u></u></span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="background-color: white; color: #222222;"><br /></div>Lareina Welchhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/03093525664753661161noreply@blogger.com11tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3927092114366579883.post-62802697648676826712020-01-12T14:47:00.000-08:002020-01-16T14:53:08.440-08:00WIN - Digital HD Download Code for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil - NOW available on digital (12/31) and Blue-ray™ 1/14/20<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-SclF9qaC36w/XiDn5O6GvrI/AAAAAAAAF-o/sm0jVOqyhS847cE1sCAFn9LH5DI_Vzd7ACLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/MALEFICENT%2BMISTRESS%2BOF%2BEVIL%2B-%2BTitle%2BArt.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="93" data-original-width="213" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-SclF9qaC36w/XiDn5O6GvrI/AAAAAAAAF-o/sm0jVOqyhS847cE1sCAFn9LH5DI_Vzd7ACLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/MALEFICENT%2BMISTRESS%2BOF%2BEVIL%2B-%2BTitle%2BArt.jpg" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is the thrilling sequel to 2014's "Maleficent," starring Angelina Jolie as Maleficent and Elle Fanning as her goddaughter Aurora.

I asked her how she wanted to spend her birthday and she said by being dressed as a princess, riding a unicorn, on a rainbow! Yes- this is four, and I'm soaking up every last minute of this magical, pink and glittery taffeta speck in time.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-tsd5e3JOiZE/XJlImLOTDZI/AAAAAAAAFy4/Hun3y1ZMNBEOc3dewLyoPTRMKPxvKaBXQCLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_2430%2B3.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1021" data-original-width="1017" height="320" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-tsd5e3JOiZE/XJlImLOTDZI/AAAAAAAAFy4/Hun3y1ZMNBEOc3dewLyoPTRMKPxvKaBXQCLcBGAs/s320/IMG_2430%2B3.jpg" width="318" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-3Lw9oCcaoAQ/XJlAw_DhNEI/AAAAAAAAFyE/0lWvuKdzoDM_IIZRZgkhqx_C4M70OhanQCLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_2430.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><br /></a></div>Since booking a unicorn on a rainbow was just out of the realm of possibilities, we figured that we could knock this LAST 4th birthday party out of the park by inviting one of the perfectly princess talents from <a href="https://www.enchantedfairytaleparties.com/" target="_blank">Enchanted Fairytale Parties</a> in Charlotte (and Miami, FL) to celebrate our littlest big girl.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4g33lwiO0Lk/XJlHcxB2iXI/AAAAAAAAFyg/xre_E-OB5Ak_xlx6ewTVr4Jf0cDCti5kACLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_2407.HEIC" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1200" data-original-width="1600" height="240" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4g33lwiO0Lk/XJlHcxB2iXI/AAAAAAAAFyg/xre_E-OB5Ak_xlx6ewTVr4Jf0cDCti5kACLcBGAs/s320/IMG_2407.HEIC" width="320" /></a></div>Her favorite princess is Ariel, because she's a feisty red head just like her!

Engaging children in shows and story lines that model different ways to handle these big emotions is why Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood has been a staple in our house.

If your family hasn't been rooting for the super-hero like competitors from your couch - it's a silly, high energy show. <br /><br />When we saw the ninja obstacle course that Adventure Air Sports in Rock Hill opened, each member of our family wanted to give it a try. From littlest bits to Dad, they all got a chance to test out their own ninja skills on the obstacles. This obstacle course is legit! My husband was able to make it through the first portion but the upper body strength required for the rest was beyond everyone's ability. We got lots of laughs and some cute photos. <br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Lr9jECn-U_U/XBmUqarhByI/AAAAAAAAFtU/hBjfH0BHGIsFHhO2OXxbtF8tVG63nJepwCLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_2313.HEIC" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1200" height="320" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Lr9jECn-U_U/XBmUqarhByI/AAAAAAAAFtU/hBjfH0BHGIsFHhO2OXxbtF8tVG63nJepwCLcBGAs/s320/IMG_2313.HEIC" width="240" /></a><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-1vt-NsEYxuQ/XBmUwDOR-aI/AAAAAAAAFtY/IDVdEv2nuycV_Q1dSwluw3WiSpXBkL63wCLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_5403.HEIC" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1200" height="320" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-1vt-NsEYxuQ/XBmUwDOR-aI/AAAAAAAAFtY/IDVdEv2nuycV_Q1dSwluw3WiSpXBkL63wCLcBGAs/s320/IMG_5403.HEIC" width="240" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-2kNTS61vWTM/XBmVMJro-pI/AAAAAAAAFtk/zfqju3gPQNs9dbQVrLdFvI1BkzZKbQN2wCLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_0663.HEIC" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1200" height="320" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-2kNTS61vWTM/XBmVMJro-pI/AAAAAAAAFtk/zfqju3gPQNs9dbQVrLdFvI1BkzZKbQN2wCLcBGAs/s320/IMG_0663.HEIC" width="240" /></a><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-_tIeMmTzpTQ/XBmWDPuAsNI/AAAAAAAAFtw/y0PW1syzbDI2r6F70tgnxmfUW8AKCxiLQCLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_3829.HEIC" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1200" height="320" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-_tIeMmTzpTQ/XBmWDPuAsNI/AAAAAAAAFtw/y0PW1syzbDI2r6F70tgnxmfUW8AKCxiLQCLcBGAs/s320/IMG_3829.HEIC" width="240" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">In addition to their killer ninja obstacle course, they also have a TON of trampoline options and So.

Washable paint for water guns. I've always wanted to go to a paint gun range - but the potential welts from high powered guns had always turned me off. I'd never seen a product like this for family fun. <br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-c8THWVd28_g/W0n_oDY9bLI/AAAAAAAAFm0/Ld82dXncBFUFCgBYnSyZyWXNrfyyJGqKwCLcBGAs/s1600/Screen%2BShot%2B2018-07-14%2Bat%2B9.50.04%2BAM.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="902" data-original-width="666" height="320" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-c8THWVd28_g/W0n_oDY9bLI/AAAAAAAAFm0/Ld82dXncBFUFCgBYnSyZyWXNrfyyJGqKwCLcBGAs/s320/Screen%2BShot%2B2018-07-14%2Bat%2B9.50.04%2BAM.png" width="236" /></a></div><br />The idea of a water gun paint battle in our backyard sounded like SO much summer fun -&nbsp; but I've been known to drink the Koolaid when it comes to ideas that SOUND fun but end up being a hot mess. Would everything get stained? Who would get hurt? Would we all look like a bad tie-dye incident for the rest of the summer? <br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-orwPKGb2mAU/W0oB8d_-9fI/AAAAAAAAFnE/6HE8q1jnYNkHiMcXN7XUlA7fv7tunFWWwCLcBGAs/s1600/gun.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1200" height="320" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-orwPKGb2mAU/W0oB8d_-9fI/AAAAAAAAFnE/6HE8q1jnYNkHiMcXN7XUlA7fv7tunFWWwCLcBGAs/s320/gun.jpg" width="240" /></a></div><br />I hesitantly put a few colors into my cart. They were on the best sale that I'd seen (under $5 each) and it seemed like a great way to celebrate my son's summer birthday with the family. We swung by the dollar tree and picked up squirt guns 3 for $1. I also bought a giant syringe to help load the guns with paint.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-qdEWOSiSwIg/W0oCd_96r0I/AAAAAAAAFnM/KnMA-wdNHA0kPKVkbiDdRZk0tC_kzHNLgCLcBGAs/s1600/setup.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1200" data-original-width="1600" height="300" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-qdEWOSiSwIg/W0oCd_96r0I/AAAAAAAAFnM/KnMA-wdNHA0kPKVkbiDdRZk0tC_kzHNLgCLcBGAs/s400/setup.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><br />We set up teams and invited everyone to wear shirts that were ok to be destroyed, in case the washable claims didn't play out. Armed with our paint filled guns, an array of sunglasses to provide some eye protection, music, paper towels, towels and a hose to wash off any collateral damage we headed outside for a battle of fun!<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Ty_fcC25wBY/W0oDTV_ipdI/AAAAAAAAFnY/hoReM5pnOr8NtvxQ_1NPwYeYgCzVq8rMwCLcBGAs/s1600/paintgungroup.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1200" data-original-width="1600" height="240" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Ty_fcC25wBY/W0oDTV_ipdI/AAAAAAAAFnY/hoReM5pnOr8NtvxQ_1NPwYeYgCzVq8rMwCLcBGAs/s320/paintgungroup.JPG" width="320" /></a></div><br />It was an awesome experience. Everyone got covered in colors and luckily everything that the paint touched washed off easily, including my stamped concrete patio, patio chairs, play house and water table. After a soapy shower the color came easily off of our skin as well.<br /><br />This isn't a sponsored or paid ad, just something my family enjoyed. As always, I only share what I love - and the price point, happy shrieks and smiles from everyone was a win-win for this experience.&nbsp; <br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Lareina Welchhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/03093525664753661161noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3927092114366579883.post-26352938453813942862018-07-10T08:45:00.001-07:002018-07-14T08:00:11.008-07:00My Brighter, Whiter Summer Smile<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-DUFmyya2pF0/W0TS6NDNXNI/AAAAAAAAFmE/LQXVIU2fb5EiN7S60cukAAJH8MK7eh7yQCLcBGAs/s1600/After%2BPhoto%2BStacked.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1600" height="320" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-DUFmyya2pF0/W0TS6NDNXNI/AAAAAAAAFmE/LQXVIU2fb5EiN7S60cukAAJH8MK7eh7yQCLcBGAs/s320/After%2BPhoto%2BStacked.jpg" width="320" /></a></div>Mommy hood has blessed me with many hours of cuddles and laughs - but it hasn't allocated me a whole lot of mommy maintenance time. If we've met, one of the first things you'll probably notice is that I smile a lot - so giving myself a whiter brighter smile has been on my to-do list for months now.<br /><div><br /><div>As I investigated my whitening options I was running into roadblocks. The dentist required several hours during the middle of the work week coupled by a hefty price tag. I was barely fitting in work, dinner and quality time with the kids as we shuffled from soccer to t-ball.<br /><div></div><div><br />Store-bought strips had only offered mild whitening improvement in the past, plus my teeth were <i><b>so</b></i> sensitive after use. I needed something to help me combat tooth staining from my lifeblood intake of&nbsp; coffee and occasional glass of red wine. I needed an at-home, budget friendly, <a href="https://www.smilebrilliant.com/product/teeth-whitening-trays#momaboutcharlotte" target="_blank">sensitive teeth system</a>. The future of my smile was looking dim (and stained).&nbsp;&nbsp;</div><div></div><div><br />Luckily, I discovered&nbsp;<a href="https://www.smilebrilliant.com/#momaboutcharlotte" target="_blank">Smile Brilliant</a>. Smile Brilliant provides&nbsp;an at-home whitening system that can address staining and sensitive teeth. Their system is sold in tiers - offering something for everyone including products for light, average and heavy staining. The price point was affordable, ranging from $139-$189 total!&nbsp;</div><div></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9xmfaxQPMww/W0TR7KMIc6I/AAAAAAAAFl4/X7UopFzz8jYzUYm5s-uREr-K5AWMgVyvQCLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_6648.JPG" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1600" height="320" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9xmfaxQPMww/W0TR7KMIc6I/AAAAAAAAFl4/X7UopFzz8jYzUYm5s-uREr-K5AWMgVyvQCLcBGAs/s320/IMG_6648.JPG" width="320" /></a></div><div></div><div>The box arrived with everything I needed to restore my brighter, whiter summer smile - with easy to use step-by-step instructions. I mixed the base and catalyst clays together to make my impressions, and waited 5 minutes for the mold to harden! The entire process from opening, reading instructions and impressions took about 20-30 minutes.&nbsp;</div><div></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div></div><div><br />It was an easy process, and I was able to email Smile Brilliant a picture of my molds to ensure they were done correctly before shipping them back in the pre-paid envelope.&nbsp;</div><div></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div></div><div><br />I received an email that my top impression needed to be re-done and the next day I did the top impression again, confirmed it was correct and popped them in the mail.&nbsp;</div><div></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-_1-088RKaa0/W0TT7RiFpsI/AAAAAAAAFmQ/vlz6dRD3EooVAGdq0bzL3ccqunO-XKELgCLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_6653.JPG" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1200" height="320" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-_1-088RKaa0/W0TT7RiFpsI/AAAAAAAAFmQ/vlz6dRD3EooVAGdq0bzL3ccqunO-XKELgCLcBGAs/s320/IMG_6653.JPG" width="240" /></a></div><div></div><div>About a week and a half later my <a href="https://www.smilebrilliant.com/product/teeth-whitening-trays#momaboutcharlotte" target="_blank">whitening trays</a> arrived and I was ready to whiten! I did 3 treatments in 2 weeks for 75 minutes each as I watched TV with my husband.&nbsp;</div><div></div><div><br />I noticed a remarkable difference and only used a tiny bit of the whitening and <a href="https://www.smilebrilliant.com/product/sensitive-teeth-gel#momaboutcharlotte" target="_blank">desensitizing gel</a> that was included. My pearly whites were significantly whiter and I didn't experience the tooth sensitivity like I have in the past. Honestly I feel like the pictures don't really do the difference justice. I'm very pleased with my results and have more gels to continue touching up throughout the year.&nbsp;</div></div></div><div></div><div><br />After reaching out to Smile Brilliant I was asked to participate in a review, so I received the system at no cost. As always with my blog, I only share what I love - and I feel that you will be just as happy with your <a href="https://www.smilebrilliant.com/teeth-whitening-facts#momaboutcharlotte" target="_blank">whitening results</a> as I am. Plus - if you're not - they offer a 100% money back guarantee.

I lie through my teeth as I start thawing the chicken. There has got to be an easier, healthy way that doesn't include going out to dinner or drive-thru food - and there is. <br /><br />Recently I was invited to <a href="https://dreamdinners.com/main.php?page=store&amp;id=209" target="_blank">Dream Dinners in Fort Mill</a> where Suzanne and staff showed me how to wake up from my nightmare-like dinner rut, and start dreaming with their easy wholesome, tasty meal prep. <a href="https://dreamdinners.com/main.php?page=store&amp;id=209" target="_blank">Dream Dinner's mission</a> is to bring families back together around the dinner table, so they can connect and enjoy dinner time together.<br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-pQ9ZhGKarWY/Workfr7xMwI/AAAAAAAAFa8/jNe9xjDLLOYSloqB-_FDuxhl20-dNq2kACLcBGAs/s1600/march%2Bmenu.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1346" height="400" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-pQ9ZhGKarWY/Workfr7xMwI/AAAAAAAAFa8/jNe9xjDLLOYSloqB-_FDuxhl20-dNq2kACLcBGAs/s400/march%2Bmenu.jpg" width="336" /></a> </div><br />The process is easy. Order your meals online in 3 or 6 serving increments from the monthly meals list - I had a hard time choosing from all the tasty sounding dishes! Stop by the store and put all your meals together in freezer bags or baking pans to place in your freezer. The night before your dinner pop the meal in the fridge, arrive home to fire up the oven or stove and follow their easy cooking instructions, dinner's ready and delicious in 20-40 minutes.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-F5w3rZCJ8Yo/WorlE55k58I/AAAAAAAAFbE/PHOF0UpVlp41csL6pnIzvN_al_aDHA49ACLcBGAs/s1600/recipe%2Bcards.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1200" height="320" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-F5w3rZCJ8Yo/WorlE55k58I/AAAAAAAAFbE/PHOF0UpVlp41csL6pnIzvN_al_aDHA49ACLcBGAs/s320/recipe%2Bcards.JPG" width="240" /></a></div><br />Here are the recipe cards you'll receive when you arrive, they are in either 3 serving or 6 serving allotments.<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-vbWr7iPTxTs/WorlcraLx1I/AAAAAAAAFbI/YEjQIQoz5S8MLDOz8KyNeLKtoEVi-oEIgCLcBGAs/s1600/meal%2Bprep.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1200" data-original-width="1600" height="300" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-vbWr7iPTxTs/WorlcraLx1I/AAAAAAAAFbI/YEjQIQoz5S8MLDOz8KyNeLKtoEVi-oEIgCLcBGAs/s400/meal%2Bprep.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><br />Next, you work your way around the prep kitchen - note there is ZERO chopping, slicing or frustration. Follow the color coded list on the recipe. You'll have both pre-measured ingredients and ingredients you use the color coded measuring tools to place into your bag.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Rqioff7GloI/WorndZ_sCCI/AAAAAAAAFbY/Me6d-0EVDkQWZnQ6vRGQjQn6aBVOUjqPQCLcBGAs/s1600/MealsPREPPED.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1200" data-original-width="1600" height="300" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Rqioff7GloI/WorndZ_sCCI/AAAAAAAAFbY/Me6d-0EVDkQWZnQ6vRGQjQn6aBVOUjqPQCLcBGAs/s400/MealsPREPPED.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><br />Load up all your bags with their simple cooking instructions, pop them in the freezer - and you're DONE. Y'all - I felt accomplished. I prepped 5 meals in less than 30 minutes. What will I do with all that extra pre-dinner time?!<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-81BHMAYT2tk/WoroAabuHpI/AAAAAAAAFbg/OCaRl6ZTEKMyJMwGnN-SYNGWkQRcb4x6wCLcBGAs/s1600/nextmonthmeal.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1200" data-original-width="1600" height="300" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-81BHMAYT2tk/WoroAabuHpI/AAAAAAAAFbg/OCaRl6ZTEKMyJMwGnN-SYNGWkQRcb4x6wCLcBGAs/s400/nextmonthmeal.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><br />As I moved from station to station they offered tastes from next month's menu (this one was Chicken Parmesan), plus ooey-gooey fresh baked cookies and coffee.

I can't help but feel anticipation as we fully embrace fall. The apple picking, the pumpkin spice everything filling the air - and of course, my favorite holiday - Halloween.<br /><br />Our neighborhood is a great place to live, lots of young families who are always busy and bringing in the FUN. A few years ago our neighbors introduced me to the Halloween tradition of being BOO-ED.<br /><br />The kids and I were getting ready to head up for bath and bed time when the door bell rang. We answered it to find a plastic pumpkin head filled with Halloween goodies and a print out with instructions on how to participate in the neighborhood BOO-ING.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-5wBMWUEu2DY/VhLMLkZIrMI/AAAAAAAAELQ/7YFijyAtpdM/s640/blogger-image-368703332.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;"><img border="0" height="300" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-5wBMWUEu2DY/VhLMLkZIrMI/AAAAAAAAELQ/7YFijyAtpdM/s400/blogger-image-368703332.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><br /><br />It said "You've Been BOO-ED!" The kids were delighted at the idea that our neighborhood ghosts and goblins had chosen us to participate in this fun Halloween tradition. After the kids poured over their loot - halloween stickers, pumpkin pencils, glow-in the dark necklaces and plastic spider rings we posted the right hand side of the instruction sheet up on the front door "We've Been BOO-ED" to let our neighbors know that we'd been properly haunted.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VXnl-ee3Ic4/VhLIF5103DI/AAAAAAAAELM/BV4mh_ujwwA/s1600/Booed%2BColor.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;"><img border="0" height="247" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VXnl-ee3Ic4/VhLIF5103DI/AAAAAAAAELM/BV4mh_ujwwA/s320/Booed%2BColor.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Next we chose two neighborhood families to BOO, printed out two of the instruction sheets and hit the store. Each of my kids picked out a few halloween-themed items to add to our witches cauldrons. Went out just around dusk (not too late!), placed our filled cauldrons on the neighbor's stoop, rang their door bell and all ran off like we were ghosts!!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-lr38UFHad5E/V-cdwOd6qOI/AAAAAAAAE1k/X7NYXE_IIJMBNs-FkmH8p0-5vQK5lYdDQCLcB/s1600/IMG_1415.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="240" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-lr38UFHad5E/V-cdwOd6qOI/AAAAAAAAE1k/X7NYXE_IIJMBNs-FkmH8p0-5vQK5lYdDQCLcB/s320/IMG_1415.JPG" width="320" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The kids were laughing and squealing with excitement that they had just BOO-ED their friends - they thought we were SO stealthy!

One of my favorite places to bring company with young kids, especially when it's CLT-HOT is Sea Life in Concord. Not only is it perfectly air conditioned, they have over 5,000 creatures to visit and view in their 117,000 gallon ocean tank, plus Antoinett and I could get some shopping in at the Concord Mills Outlet Mall when we finished our aquatic adventure.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/--OU9AlviYGw/WSB6lPNw3PI/AAAAAAAAFJs/nyEYnqlwI1c0tp-2Ic3GhNa1C_cX5wY1QCLcB/s1600/IMG_1402.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/--OU9AlviYGw/WSB6lPNw3PI/AAAAAAAAFJs/nyEYnqlwI1c0tp-2Ic3GhNa1C_cX5wY1QCLcB/s320/IMG_1402.JPG" width="240" /></a></div><br /></div><div>The colors and vibrancy of Sea Life makes you feel like you're stepping into a totally nautical world. Her 10 and 6-year-old loved the touch pool where they were able to explore sea stars and urchins hands-on. There were many oohs and ahhs as we walked through the Shoaling exhibit where thousands of Pilchards circled around us like a NASCAR race. It's quite a mesmerizing experience.&nbsp;</div><div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GJnSPOJ9Hdk/WSB6uA9rsZI/AAAAAAAAFJw/RYH3OzHh2dAtLOkHGkeGpyeti3_LzDfWwCLcB/s1600/IMG_1405.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GJnSPOJ9Hdk/WSB6uA9rsZI/AAAAAAAAFJw/RYH3OzHh2dAtLOkHGkeGpyeti3_LzDfWwCLcB/s320/IMG_1405.JPG" width="240" /></a></div><br /></div><div>My personal favorite is the sea horse exhibit, they seem so exotic and calming the way they glide and float across the tank.<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-rHcuUyej47w/WSB7aLzDe6I/AAAAAAAAFJ4/rfPj_R3r3NMBRQA0nAf6pjIIgJ2qecaYgCLcB/s1600/IMG_1403.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-rHcuUyej47w/WSB7aLzDe6I/AAAAAAAAFJ4/rfPj_R3r3NMBRQA0nAf6pjIIgJ2qecaYgCLcB/s320/IMG_1403.JPG" width="240" /></a></div><br />Antoinett's son read every single informational post and her daughter enjoyed collecting badges throughout the exhibits with my kids.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-oZ20IJ7T8IQ/WSB7zDELVgI/AAAAAAAAFKA/dn4s5QAR7a4p0hsKbjM6ix69N-h_34negCLcB/s1600/IMG_1406.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-oZ20IJ7T8IQ/WSB7zDELVgI/AAAAAAAAFKA/dn4s5QAR7a4p0hsKbjM6ix69N-h_34negCLcB/s320/IMG_1406.JPG" width="240" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-RfK34p5j_qE/WSB7ynMdFiI/AAAAAAAAFJ8/LC-okx3-8eEOI5hMLAkA8uPvI7Yq5_g_ACLcB/s1600/IMG_1407.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-RfK34p5j_qE/WSB7ynMdFiI/AAAAAAAAFJ8/LC-okx3-8eEOI5hMLAkA8uPvI7Yq5_g_ACLcB/s320/IMG_1407.JPG" width="240" /></a></div><br /><br />I think the kid's favorite was the coral reef, this is where the ocean tanks stretch to the ceiling, and sharks and fish swim overhead as you walk through the middle of the coral reef.&nbsp;</div><div><br />With the heat of summer and the fun of house guests, a trip to <a href="https://www.visitsealife.com/charlotte-concord/" target="_blank">Sea Life</a> is a great way to escape, enjoy and make memories all in a comfortable, educational and fun-filled aquatic setting.&nbsp;</div><div><br />Memorial Day is just around the corner, and with Charlotte expecting the 90's it's a great opportunity to explore <a href="https://www.visitsealife.com/charlotte-concord/" target="_blank">Sea Life</a>!<br /><br />Tuesdays are Toddler Tuesdays where you can break up the long summer weeks and save money. When you buy a full priced ($15 now) adult ticket you get one child ticket for FREE on Tuesdays. Additional children are $5 up to 5 kids. It's a great play date meet up spot!</div><div><br />For more information about Sea Life and stay up to date on special events you can visit <a href="https://www.visitsealife.com/charlotte-concord/" target="_blank">their website here</a>, check out their <a href="https://www.facebook.com/SEALIFECharlotteConcord/" target="_blank">Facebook page here</a> and follow them on <a href="https://www.instagram.com/sealifecc/" target="_blank">Instagram here</a>.<br /><br />Sea Life provided passes to our families to facilitate this review, but as always, all opinions are my own.
