As of late, this is my favorite picture of Mister Mans...

I mean who doesn't love a good butt up in the air shot! Somebody just wasn't feeling up to being up that morning.

Life just moves quickly, we just had St. Patrick's day and even the First day of Spring (thankfully). Easter will be here before you know it. All the while, we still have over a foot of snow on the ground. Seesh, I am so ready for the snow to melt away. The river opens up more and more everyday. One thing I am thankful for is the slow melt that is happening, so that we don't flood the water tables with all of this snow melt off.

This past weekend we headed up to Lebanon, Maine to the Belgian Meadow Farms for their Maine Maple Syrup weekend. I would have taken more pictures, but it was so gosh darn windy and cold, we didn't spend much time outside. It was a fun time and I would certainly go back, just a bummer that it was so cold and windy. It sounds like many of the maple syrup farms are struggling this year with production. The conditions haven't been ideal for the sap to flow.

Certainly have a busy April on tap. I will be attending two conferences for work. One in South Portland, Maine and then another right afterwards in North Conway, NH. I am looking forward to the latter one. It's put on by an organization that is near and dear to my heart, so getting to spend 3 days with friends and like-minded people in my job field is always a fun time. On top of that Mister Mans and hopefully Ben will be with me so we can make it a little bit of a family trip as well.

Hopefully I can be better about taking more pictures.

Review: Crest Pro-Health: HD toothpaste

I recently received the opportunity from Crest and as a BzzAgent to try out Crest Pro Health: HD toothpaste.

At first I was a little hesitant about it. I am not a fan of brushing my teeth in general. Now here was a two step process. However I was committed to at least trying it for the week to see if there would be a difference in my smile.

I am not a fan of the taste of the 2nd step. It's obviously the whitening part of the process, so there's probably a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide, but the taste was funky. It was all I could to try and keep my tongue out of the way.

I guess it's also in my nature to rinse my mouth and spit, Even though the directions say not to rinse your mouth out between steps, I kept catching myself trying to rinse.

However, after a week, I certainly noticied a difference. What do you think?
