IntelliDent Product Review

How Clean is your toothbrush, no really? Most people don't think too much about the cleanliness of their toothbrush. To tell you the truth I never thought too much about it myself until I tested this product out and started doing some research into just how nasty the things in the bathroom can get. If your family is like ours we all have our tooth brushes in a little cup type holder to keep them all together. That is fine, but what about when someone in your family is sick or starting to get sick. After they brush their teeth they just toss their toothbrush in with the rest of the toothbrushes and splatter germs all over the rest of the family's toothbrushes, getting everyone else in the family sick as well.

What is nice about the IntelliDent is that it will block all the germs that would normally make it to your toothbrush so you don't have to keep getting the family sick and passing all the germs around. It is also good just to keep all the other germs off of your toothbrush as well. Have you ever wondered what happens when you flush the toilet, you would be surprised at all the germs that escape the toilet bowl.

 The IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield was tested to be a 99.9% effective barrier against airborne and surface bacteria, by the Nelson Laboratories, Salt Lake City, UT. Nelson Laboratories is a leading provider of full, life-cycle microbiology testing for the medical device, pharmaceutical, and natural product industries.

This amazing product is worth the pennies a day that it costs and is a great investment in you and your families health. They also have guards for mouth pieces as well so you can keep those nice and safe and free from all the same bacteria as your toothbrush. Can be purchased at Walmart, Walgreens or at I would recommend this product for everyone and anyone because of the price and how great the product is. I did receive this product for free for my honest opinion and review.

Book Review of The Subtle Beauty (Crowns of the Twelve Book 1)

I wanted to like this book because I love to read and very seldom come across a book that I do not like or can't finish.  The book didn't make a lot of sense and lost me before I was halfway into it.  I wanted to stop reading after the first 20 pages but wanted to try to give the book the benefit of the doubt.  I ended up throwing in the towel shortly after being half way through the book.  I just could not get my brain to continue reading any longer.  I would not recommend this book unless you are wanting something to ready that might challenge your brain. I got this book for free for my honest opinion and review.

Product Review For Gorsun Headphones

Product Review For Gorsun Headphones

The Gorsun C Series headphones are leaps and bounds 
better than most all of the headphones I have used in this price range and even better than some more expensive headphones that I have used.  The sound quality is surprisingly great, has some nice deep bass and the treble is excellent as well, overall a great range for most all of the music that I listened to.  I tried them out with rock, country, pop and some classical music.  They are very loud head phones and I was able to listen at a lower volume then normal and still have them sound great. 

They are extremely comfortable and after wearing them all day for listening to music and phone calls I forgot that I had them on at one point in the day.  The loop that you can use to wrap around your ears to make them not fall out while exercising is a great feature as well.  I was able to do some running and weight lifting without even worrying about them falling out.  It is nice to be able to retract that part as well and have them look sleek when just using them normally.

I used them for a few days as a hand free set to make and receive phone calls as well and was surprised to say that the sound was great and I didn’t have anyone complain that they couldn’t hear me from the microphone.  I even had it under my shirt so the cord wouldn’t snag on anything while I was at work and the microphone still performed better than expected.  I wish the cord was a little longer so I could have the microphone and controls on the outside.  Having a volume up and down button would have been a nice added feature as well.

I normally use Bluetooth headsets to listen to music and for my calls on my cell phone but sometimes need a corded set while my Bluetooth is charging.  I will defiantly keep these handy for my back up pair. I am giving them 4 stars because the lack of volume control on the cord. I was provided these at a discount for my honest review and opinion.

The kids were able to go to Jump In for just a fun Modern Woodmen activity. I love that they had fun and especially that we were active for a Monday night activity.

I was so excited to celebrate our 15th year family anniversary with the family by going to Provo. The reason why we chose Provo was because the Provo City Center Temple had an open house going on right now. Perfect timing for us!!!

We left on Friday and headed down to Provo to our hotel. Our kids just LOVE staying in hotels. We don't get to do that very often, but we have been staying more often than in the past. We decided on Red Robin for dinner and met Laura and Jason, along with Sam!!!

Dinner was not great, but we did enjoy each other's company. After dinner, we took a dip in the pool and earned more points for our fitness challenge.

Saturday morning, we beat the morning rush to breakfast and headed to the temple. It was quite the rat race going back in forth in the lines in the underground parking lot. Luckily the standby line was quick.

After waiting for a little bit, we went into one of the theater rooms, put on the famous booties and watched a 10 minute video of why temples are so important to Mormons. It was beautiful.

It was beautiful. Kate was so touched at the baptismal font that she asked if she could be baptized for cousin Maze when she turned 8. I had to explain to her that girls are only baptized for girls. And then Robyn reminded me that children under 8 don't need any temple ordinances. He is perfect. It still gives me chills just thinking about that perfect nephew. I can't wait to meet him again.

Here are some pictures from online since photography is not allowed.

After the temple, we went to Spanish Fork to see Laura's apartment. We had a good laugh about how narrow her kitchen was. Dishwasher in the back, across from the fridge and then the stove. It's cozy!!!

The kids then played the wii and tried out several things. It was very fun!!! Here they are bowling!

the Peterson family!!!

 After the time in Spanish Fork, we went back to Provo to visit with the infamous Thomas family. We like to call them the Fa'aga'i's. Haha!!!

We had a wonderful time visiting at a lunch/dinner!

They brought up back to their cozy apartment. I had to take a picture of their picture frame!!! 
We all signed their frame while we visited even more.

After we were done visiting, we headed up to the Jolley's to visit with our cousins. We had dinner and then played card games while the kids played too. I love that they all get along and love each other.

Dawson, Jony, and Kate

Too much fun!!! Sunday, we attending their full block of meetings at church. I really loved it so much!

The weekend was so much fun and worth every minute of it. I hope the other kids loved it as much as I did. Here's to another 15 years!!!


(Caution some Spoilers)
The main character’s name is Blaise and he is an outcast from the Sorcerer's Council after the Council was responsible for his brothers death. He is dead set on making it so even the lowliest person in the kingdom will be able to do magic and help improve their lives. He set out to accomplish this by creating a magic artifact that would allow anyone to wield the magical powers that he is able to wield. The outcome of his project ended up being more complicated than he could have ever imagined. There was not an artifact in the middle of his room there was a completely Nude young women in the middle of his room where the artifact should have been.

The Sorcery Code is a great mash up of Magic and computer coding from my gatherings after reading this book over the weekend. My Family and I were going out of town and being the book junkie that I am, I needed to get a new book to read/Listen to for the drive to go see family. The first thing that caught my attention is how the sorcerers had to make cards that were basically a shorthand of the magic spell. They referred to this as “Coding” and it reminded me of website coding for making web pages

 I love fantasy and Sci-Fi books and this one had been on my list to read when I had finished a few other series on my wish list. I was able to get the #SorceryCode for free in exchange for my honest opinion, so I decided to move it to the front of my list for my weekend trip. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the story caught my attention and kept it up until the end of the book, leaving me wanting to hurry and get the second one to find out what was going to happen.

There could have been some more time spent on developing the characters a little more but over all it was not a complete downfall of the book. I imagine that in the 2nd book there will be some more character development to get to know them better. Gala after all was just created so there is not a lot to her character yet. I am excited to see how her magic progresses and expands and be able to see all the things she might be able to do.

Over all I am very happy with this book and the author's writing style. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a great book that is not very hard to read. I used the narration on it so I could listen to it and drive at the same time. I personally love listening to books more than reading but then again I am always driving it seems so it makes it nice to be able to listen to books. You can get this book from this link #SorceryCode
