Update on the Road to Robyn’s New Smile

Update on the Road to Robyn’s New Smile

Tuesday afternoon I had my first oral surgery for the first step of extractions for my new smile! They took out seven teeth yesterday. Luckily I had IV anesthesia and so I don’t remember any of the actual oral surgery part! That is the way to go for dental work! Such a huge difference and such a much less stressful experience for me. Dr. Loveless of St. Louis West Oral … Continue Reading →

Help Me Get a New Smile!

Many of you know of my dental woes. Today I got my final consultation on getting myself a brand new smile! I am so excited about this, but it costs a LOT of money. Because of this I have put together a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money to pay for the oral surgery and dentures. I would so appreciate it if you could take a moment to watch my … Continue Reading →
Procrastinating Does Not Help

Procrastinating Does Not Help

I’m sure I have talked about being a procrastinator here before. I am really good at it. Sadly.  Hiding out in bed, pulling the covers up over you, none of that makes things go away. However, I have been trying really hard lately to reform my ways. Really, really hard. This does not mean I have overcome my procrastination, it just means I am trying and finally noticing the benefits … Continue Reading →

Win Your Dream Home and Support Kids

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a leader in the treatment of childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. This is a charity that I have always been happy to donate to because I just cannot imagine how devastating it must be to have your child diagnosed with something like this. On top of this no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. We … Continue Reading →
What I realized in therapy yesterday

What I realized in therapy yesterday

Most of you know I am a big believer in therapy. My family and I have been seeing one for quite some time. We started going as a family for my son when he was little and went both as a family, just him, sometimes son and I, sometimes Hubby and son. Our current therapist (there have been several over the years) is my favorite. Therapy can be really hard, … Continue Reading →

Along with working on our bodies to get healthier, we always have to work on our minds. Luckily, we can work on both of those things and they help each other at the same time. Don’t you love when things work out like that? stuff (noun): all of those emotions, triggers, and thoughts that cause you to be closed and not enjoy life as much as possible I was browsing … Continue Reading →
The eyes are the window to our soul and our health

The eyes are the window to our soul and our health

Disclosure: I am being compensated United Health Care to share my thoughts on this topic. Opinions are my own. We have heard the phrase, “the eyes are the window to your soul,” many times. However, we now know that are eyes are also a window to our overall health. Having an annual comprehensive eye exam, including dilation, can help recognize and diagnose chronic health conditions. I’ve talked before about how … Continue Reading →

If you have been reading my blog lately you know that I have been under a lot of stress lately with my son. It is what it is and I am managing to get through it.

I tend to catch colds easier, have more headaches, and even my blood pressure will … Continue Reading →
Foods and Antioxidants as Preservatives: A Primer

Foods and Antioxidants as Preservatives: A Primer

Last week many of you saw my tweets tagged #AntioxidantFacts. This was during a webinar I attend (disclosure: I was compensated as well) with The Motherhood and ConAgra Foods. When they asked if I would like to participate I jumped on the chance because honestly, all of the talk of preservatives and what is and is not good in food still confuses me. I wanted to learn more about the … Continue Reading →
