So here we are, a month after starting the Listerine Oral Care Challenge, and I'm sitting here with heathier teeth and gums...and waking up with better breath.  (We refer to morning breath as dragon breath...although I feel like mine's more like baby dragon breath instead of what it was before, which was more akin to ...

cookieskids 1

I have heard of Cookie's Kids before- but I had no idea what I was missing. I think I'd heard once that it was a site that offered great selection and pricing for school uniforms, and kind of never took the time to explore. I shopped on their site on December 15th, as part of ...
