I hate the Dentist, but I love doing a GIVEAWAY!! :-)

Ohhhh heyyyy everyone!! I see I have some new followers! Thanks so much for stopping by. If you haven't already noticed I am a newer blogger so I don't have much to look at yet! Just wait though! I'm in the process of following you all back!

Thanks so much to my girl Lindsey for giving me some attention on her blog! I didn't even have to ask beg, plead, bargain her! She is also a nurse that only works on the weekend and a mommy! If you aren't already following her go check her out HERE!


The Dentist - does anyone actually like going to see them? I just have the worse luck with the ones I see. I'm not an anxious person, but I get super anxious when I go. I needed a root canal a few months ago and my tooth ended up cracking pretty bad so I had to see a Dental Surgeon. They wanted to do a tooth implant... I looked into it, but once I realized it was going to be at least a thousand dollars (even with dental insurance) I said hell no this working momma would rather buy diapers, and cute shoes. It's a back tooth, and I still have my wisdom teeth so the dentist said it would give my wisdom tooth room to fill in if I got it pulled. So I went back to my regular Dentist to have her pull it and she just walked up to me and puts something into my mouth without even saying a word to me. I'm sorry but that is very unprofessional. I sat there quiet I didn't get anxious girl crazy on her with a q-tip sticking out of my mouth (it was obviously some sort of numbing medicine before the Novocaine) until she walked back over without saying a word with a big ass needle ready to inject. I am not afraid of needles by any means but she didn't even identify me, let alone say a word to me so I freaked. I think I may have scared her but really... I don't care if you are in a rush - you can explain what the fuck heck you are doing to me!! I ended up with a dry socket (a not so common complication) so I have been in HORRIBLE pain. It's finally starting to feel a little bit better- - - 6 days later!!

Here's my crazy little 13 month old chillin' out before bedtime... if I could only get her to stop sucking that darn thumb!!! :(

As promised, now that I got my 10+ follow here's a giveaway of a few of my favorite things!!

First up is a little photo album entitled "friends and family" I am a picture whore lady, and the best way to see progress in a weight loss journey is through pictures. Snap away!
Next is Carmex Moisture lip balm, it's kind of like chapstick and lip gloss all in one. I love it!!
I never used to be an Essie nail polish fan, but I am now! This is called -Pink Diamond- and it is subtle but girly. This pic doesn't do it justice!
One of my favorite on the go snacks - ALMONDS!!
I still haven't been able to find Think Thin Bars (you know, the ones everyone is talking about these days!!) I am a cliff bar girl =)
Have you ever had a sweet tooth, but didn't want to feel extra guilty? Try skinny cow - it's definitely not a Snickers or a Twix but it helps with cravings!

i HATE the dentist too! The thought of having to go just makes me feel sick. Probably bc I have horrible teeth thanks to my parents and ALWAYS need to get a cavity filled.
Where did you find the Skinny Cow bars!? I need to get me some of those! I looove their ice cream sandwiches!
Hope I win so I can try out all the awesome stuff! :)
Thanks for following me back, too!

I cannot find Think Thins anywhere either. And I desperately want to find them cos all the flavors look amazing!

Okay, WAY excited about your giveaway & will DEFINITELY blog about it today. PS...thanks for following me!!!!!

I need to think about doing a giveaway so I can have more stalkers, I mean followers ;-)

I am a weirdo who loves the dentist {I just really like the way my teeth feel after}, but would probably change my mind if I had that same experience you did!

My now 5-1/2 year old was a thumb-sucker. She decided to stop sucking the day she wanted her nails painted & I told her she couldn't until she quit sucking her thumb. She was almost 4 when it finally happen, but hey, it happened!

Tasha Reeves said...

Oh, & I need to try out those snacks!!!!

Katie J said...
