Thursday's Thumbs

Thumbs Up!

Game- Ok, this is the night you've waited for... a game I have in store.... LOL. The other night in my GNO post I mentioned a game that we played that was fun. The game is called Uno Attack! (or in the UK or Canada it's called Uno Extreme). This is not the Uno game of your childhood. There are exciting new cards and an electric card shooter. When you can't play a card (or if certain cards are played that tell you to push the button) and you push a button you may get no cards or it may shoot 5 or 8 cards at you! This is not a game for the jumpy! It was super fun, especially when someone is about to go out and they get a handful of cards shot at them! Yeah! Take that!

Salad- Last night we tried for the first time a Dole Salad Kit. The one we tried was a Caesar Salad. It comes with romaine lettuce, garlic croutons, grated Parmesan cheese and a convenient packaged dressing. It was super yummy! I didn't think I'd like it because I am so picky about my salads, but I am happy I was surprised. I went and bought another packet today. While I was there I also picked up the Taco Toss Kit and we had that tonight with enchiladas. It too was super yummy. It comes with crisp iceberg, romaine, red cabbage, carrots, radishes, crispy tortilla strips, shredded cheddar cheese and salsa ranch dressing. The salsa ranch dressing is YUM!!!

Crest White Strips- Ok, I was really sceptical about these little buggars. I thought for sure that the spaces where my teeth met would be left untouched and that it would do uneven bleaching, but it hasn't! They kind of bubble up with the solution of 14% Hydrogen Peroxide and get in all the cracks. The dentist told me to do it twice a day for 21 days but it only took about 14 days and not twice a day to get my teeth as white as I would like them to. I was very impressed with how quickly they worked and how easy it was. Just make sure not to eat or drink anything but water for at least 30 minutes after each treatment.

Thumbs Down!

I have no thumbs down for this session.

I love uno attack!!! I have wanted to try those strips, but hear they make your teeth REALLY sensitive and mine already are. I guess it may be worth it so I don't greet everyone I meet with a yellow smile *sigh*

Thanks again for stopping by and giving me great motivating comments! YAY! Thank you! I hope you enjoy the recipes. Let me know how they turn out if you get the chance :) . . . I have more to post this week :)

I've played Uno Attack also, but the cards kept getting stuck and after awhile we gave up. :P

I've heard about the whitening strips, but have never tried them. I have the gel I put in containers then put on my teeth. They are a pain and while I don't use them everyday for 4+ hours (who can do that??) I don't see much result. Maybe I should switch to the strips.

Thanks for the recommendations!
