My Oral Care Routine

This shop has been compensated by Inmar Intelligence and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CleanHealthyBold 

Oral health and dentistry has always been an interest to me from a young age. Growing up going to the dentist was one of my very favorite things, I practically begged my parents for braces (and got to wear them for five years), and sometime between graduating high school, going to college, and becoming a mother, I became a licensed dental assistant. The field of dentistry, and keeping my own teeth healthy has been a major priority to me for most of my life. 


As I've gotten older I feel like my oral health routine has evolved beyond making sure I brush twice a day, to focusing a lot more on gum health and prolonging the longevity of my teeth and oral health. Within the last year I've noticed signs of gum sensitivity, so I've been hyper vigilant with keeping them as healthy as possible with three simple steps. 

Using a High Quality Mouthwash: 

I've recently started incorporating the LISTERINE® Gum Therapy Antiseptic Mouthwash into my routine and have been really pleased with the results so far. This mouthwash is ADA accepted which is something that is always important to me when choosing oral care items. I love that it's formulated with anti-plaque and anti-gingivitis essential oils to promote gum health and freshen breath. I also really love that it helps to clean below the gumline where brushing can't reach to help reverse the signs of early gum disease such as red, bleeding, and inflamed gums.

Not Brushing My Teeth So Hard

I noticed for several weeks that my gums were super sensitive, and when talking with another friend in the dental field we'd concluded that I was brushing way too hard. While I love brushing my teeth several times a day, I've been super mindful the last several weeks to be soft and not "scrub" at my teeth with my toothbrush. I've noticed less pain and sensitivity over the last week and I think the combination of LISTERINE® Gum Therapy Antiseptic Mouthwash, and being more mindful of my brushing is really working well together to get my mouth feeling better. 


Flossing Everyday: 

Flossing is the hardest habit in the world to keep up with right? Derek actually started flossing his teeth pretty regularly over the last few months which led to me feeling bad about not being in the habit of flossing, so I've been doing it more just to level up to Derek. Whatever the reason is, I've been doing it, and I definitely have less floss guilt in my life. Every dentist I've ever worked for has said, "You only have to floss the teeth you want to keep..." which sounds cliche, but there is definitely a reason why they say it! 


What do you do to prioritize your gum health? I've been loving the new LISTERINE® Gum Therapy Antiseptic Mouthwash. Be sure to pick some up on your next trip to Walmart!

This year has certainly brought a lot of changes for our little family. A month ago we bought and moved into our new home, I'll be teaching physical education when school starts in August, I'll still be blogging once school starts and working in marketing for another local company. Derek also works 100% from home so with all these major needs, we definitely needed a home office space for Derek to use during the day, and for me to write, lesson plan, and do my other work in the evenings.

Our Favorite Home Office Tools:
I'm typically a very organized person, but now that I'll be teaching grades K-8 in the fall, keeping my classes and lesson plans organized is important now more than ever. I have always been huge fan of G2 line from Pilot Pen. I love that they come in a wide variety of colors so I can use one color for each of my classes. G2 is also proven to be the longest writing gel ink pen that has smooth writing and a comfortable grip. I love that I can purchase the G2 18pk from Pilot Pen and be confident that it can last me through the school year.

Another must in our home office are the Precise Marklighter2 premium dual tip creative marker. The Marklighter2 has a broad chisel tip as well as an extra fine tip designed to deliver ultra-smooth, vibrant, precision highlighting and creative writing experience. I love using these to highlight standards in curriculum that I need to include into my classes, or to mark key elements that I need revisit with my students. The Precise Marklighter2 also doesn't bleed through your paper, which is crucial for any teacher who doesn't want to ruin their lesson planner.

How We Designed Our Home Office:
When I was planning out this office I wanted it to be a space that was aesthetically pleasing for me, but also a place that Derek felt comfortable working in as well. I leaned pretty masculine with the paint colors and furniture choices, and then let my personal style show through in the decor elements.

We wanted to keep everything pretty simple with the streamlined and minimal furniture. I also hate clutter so we chose a desk that didn't have a lot drawers for things to get lost. We never really had a space to store any of our books that aren't children's books, and love that we now have the bookshelf to house them all!

Home Office Decorating Tips:
For this space we didn't want it to be cluttered with things we wouldn't be using, so we really tried to style it with purposeful items. I think books you already own make the best kind of decor, so we brought in a bunch of our favorites and styled them on the shelves. Then we brought in some plants to bring a little life into the room. Lastly, we grabbed this small globe (because every office needs a globe right?), and some vases to add to the shelf and it was complete!

I find alternating the sides of the shelf with books on one side, and other items of the other side, and then doing the opposite on the next shelf is a really great way to balance out a bookshelf.

I'm so glad we have this space finished in time for the new school year, and that I'll be able to keep myself organized with help from Pilot Pen.

Self Care in the Summertime

This post was sponsored by SwimWays as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

We've all been through a lot the last several months, and with everyone being home all the time, I personally feel like self-care is so important for one's mental and emotional well-being. I'm sure we've all felt like we're carrying a lot of the load in terms of our family's productivity, entertainment, and overall wellbeing, which is why it's so important to remember to carve out some time to care for ourselves, even if it's just an hour on the weekend. Providing that space for yourself is crucial.

My Favorite Form of Self Care in the Summertime:
I've always loved going to the beach during the summer whether that was the ocean, lake, or even a local pond like we have near where we live. Being in the water just feels like summer to me, and I love to take advantage of it when possible.

For me, this looks like loading up on sunscreen, putting on my bathing suit, and grabbing my Original Spring Float from SwimWays. The Original Spring Float has a hammock-like style that cradles your body just below the surface of the water, keeping you cool on hot summer days. I love using this float because with typical floats that hold you completely above the water, you get extremely hot a lot faster than you do with The Original Spring Float. Being partially submerged in water is amazing.

If you want something that helps you stay a little more upright instead of laying completely flat, I also really love the SwimWays Spring Float Recliner. You're still partially submerged in water where your seat is, but it allows you to have full upright back support, and a footrest. Perfect if you want to sit up and read a book!

What to do while you're out in the water:
If I'm out in the water floating on my own, I love to listen to an audiobook or some of my favorite music (thank goodness most phones are waterproof nowadays right? I love to let myself aimlessly float around while listening to something that is calming and relaxing. If music or a book isn't your thing, just simply enjoy the sounds of nature and being away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life. This is also a great time to clear your mind and meditate.

Yoga on the beach:
Once you're done in the water, dry off and put your SwimWays float back in it's convenient carrying case, and then take some time to stretch and do a few yoga poses on the beach. This will help you to feel more relaxed before you head back home and get back into your normal routine! 

What is your favorite way to do self care in the summertime? We're so lucky to have several ponds and lakes that we can visit right now, and I'm so grateful to be able to take advantage of them and get a little head space! 

How to Make Money Blogging 2020

Tracking PixelThis post is sponsored by  Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook For Filling Your Websites and Funnels With Your Dream Customers, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

On June 30th thehappyflammily.com will officially be nine-years-old. It's hard to believe I've kept this thing running for that long, and it's seen a lot of variations throughout the years. I had originally started the blog as a family journal and had another food blog called The Flammily Kitchen. Sometime around 2012 I merged the two sites and have been blogging here exclusively ever since.

I made a goal this year to start making a consistent full-time income blogging, and to do that I had to implement a lot of strategies that I haven't done the previous eight years on the internet. I've learned so much about how to make money blogging, and how to market your blog in 2020 that I've been able to hit some huge milestones, the biggest was signing onto a new ad network that has dramatically increased my ad revenue by over 2200%! Crazy right? Here are three things I'm doing to make money blogging in 2020.

Use Pinterest to Increase Blog Traffic:

I've had the biggest love-hate relationship with Pinterest since it's creation 10+ years ago. Every blogger I know says this is their number one traffic source and I just couldn't get it to work. This year I finally cracked the code on Pinterest and have taken my account form 100K monthly views, to over 2.6 million monthly views on my Pinterest account. This has led to a dramatic increase in traffic, and is the main reason behind me signing onto a new ad network. You can read all about my Pinterest strategy here.

Russell Brunson 30 Day Challenge:

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter you might have seen that I'm participating in a 30 Day Challenge. Russell Brunson recently published Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook For Filling Your Websites and Funnels With Your Dream Customers. I've been reading this book the last several weeks and have been implementing it's teachings to help build my site. It's all about identifying who your dream customers or visitors are, figuring out where they're hanging out online, and then being able to convert them to your site and business. By completing the 30-day challenge, you'll learn key strategies to increase your site traffic.

The biggest problem most entrepreneurs have isn't creating content for blogs, or amazing goods and services for business owners, it's getting their customers to discover that they even exist. Businesses start and fail each year because business owners don't understand the science behind getting customers or website visitors to find them.

It's honestly helped me really focus and identify where I want my blog to go in the future, and has given me tangible, actionable steps, that are evergreen and can be carried over to any platform, no matter what algorithm changes or social media platforms rise up in the future. If you're a business owner or blogger, you need to get your hands on a copy of Traffic Secrets.

Learning The Basics Behind SEO:

SEO (search engine optimization) has been an illusive obstacle for me for ages. It's all about identifying the best keywords that people will search for on google, and then incorporating them into your content to make your page rank and have people see your site when they're searching online. Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook For Filling Your Websites and Funnels With Your Dream Customers, has a lot of great hands on activities that you can work through to help you identify what your keywords are so that you can implement this in your own business. I'm currently attempting to go through my old blog posts and re-write them to be more SEO friendly to increase my passive google traffic, which is pathetically almost existent currently. 

Are you a blogger or business owner? What have you found to be the best ways to get customers to your sites? I'd love to hear all about it in the comments below!

Trade Old Cell Phones for Cash with Trademore



This post is sponsored by Trademore. I was paid for this post. 

We are at the point with our move where we're too far to actually start packing, but are taking advantage of this time to declutter our closets and not take anything to the new house that we won't be needing.


We've had a box in our closet with a bunch of old cell phones for as long as I can remember. I had very little interest in bringing this box along for an eleventh move with our family, but also didn't want to dump it into a landfill. We've been taking a lot of steps as a family this year to be better stewards of the environment with recycling, so I wanted to make sure these phones went somewhere where they would be handled appropriately. 

In comes Trademore. I instantly loved that their website mentions all phones being sustainably repurposed or recycled. Their entire process from start to finish was super easy, and I can't recommend them enough if you're looking to get some cash for your old devices.


How to sell a phone with Trademore:

To sell a phone with Trademore, simply go to their website where you can find get the answer to, "How much is my phone worth?" Put in all the information about the make and model of your phone, the condition that it's in, and any other questions they ask, and then they will tell you how much money you can get for your phone.

Trademore will send you a recovery kit in the mail (that includes a return shipping label), where you can safely package your phone and send it back to them hassle free. Your quote that you receive from Trademore is good for 30 days, so be sure to send your phone back promptly when you get your recovery kit so that you don't see a delay in your payment being processed or run into any issues.


How does Trademore issue payments? 

Trademore issues payments through a virtual MasterCard or Paypal accounts. When you go to checkout on their website for your recovery kit, you enter the payment information that you would like to use when they issue your payment. It's a super easy process that only takes a few minutes to get started.

I'm so glad that I decided to make moving a litter easier on myself by getting a little cash in my pocket for selling my old phone, and not having to pack one extra thing to bring to the new house! Be sure to head on over to Trademore's website to find out how much cash you can get for your phone!

Spicy Baked Salmon Recipe

A clinical study showed Mazola Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, visit Mazola.com.

Now that summer is right around the corner we've been firing up the grill on our back deck and have started making some of our favorite summer dishes. A go-to meal that we have weekly in our house is this Spicy Asian Salmon Marinade. It's a meal that I know everyone will eat (including the kids) and is made with simple ingredients that we always have on hand.

How to make this Spicy Baked Salmon Recipe:

The base to this marinade starts with 1/4 cup of Mazola Corn Oil. Mazola Corn Oil is a heart-healthy* cooking oil and creates marinades that make great-tasting food because it has a neutral taste that lets the natural flavor of your food stand out. Mazola has always been our go-to oil because it has a high smoke point of 450º, which makes it great for grilling and stir frying. Mazola Corn Oil also has more cholesterol-blocking plant sterols than other cooking oils* (4x more than olive oil, 3x more than vegetable (soybean) oil, and 1.3x more than canola oil.) Clinical studies indicate that when consumed as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, plant sterols can help reduce the absorption of cholesterol in the gut.

How Long to Let Your Salmon Marinade For:

This is entirely up to you. You can prep this ahead of time by putting your salmon in the marinade the night before, but I typically put all my ingredients together in a gallon sized bag, and then let the fish sit in there and absorb the flavors while I'm waiting for the grill to heat up. I find it usually sits in there for about 10-15 minutes and still yields amazing flavor!

What to Pair with Your Salmon:

When we make this Spicy Asian Salmon Marinade, we typically pair it with brussel sprouts and potatoes! To make these sides, we typically toss the veggies in a bit of Mazola Corn Oil, sprinkle them with salt and pepper, and then wrap them up in foil and let them cook on the grill along with the salmon.

Healthy Pizza Bagel Bite Recipe

Does anyone else find it incredibly satisfying to make something from scratch that you'd normally just purchase from the freezer section at the grocery store? Ever since I made my own everything bagels a few weeks ago, I've been playing with a few ideas of how I could make that bagel recipe into other variations, and then had the idea to make these quick and easy homemade pizza bagel bites.

To make the dough for these bagels you will need one cup each of flour and plain non-fat greek yogurt, combined with salt and baking powder. The minimal ingredients means these aren't processed like what you would get from the grocery store, and they have more protein than your typical pizza bagel bites.

February is Heart Health Month. When I think about my heart health, and overall health in general, I like to think about small easy changes I can make to improve my health on a daily basis. For instance, our family loves pizza, so we know we can make changes to our recipe to better meet the nutritional needs of our family. A big switch we've made in the last year is using Mazola® Corn Oil. A clinical study showed Mazola Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, see Mazola.com.

How to make Pizza Healthier

What better way to celebrate Heart Month, and Valentine's than with a whole wheat, heart shaped, Valentine's veggie pizza? When making our favorite quick and easy pizza recipe, there were several changes we were able to make, in order for our pizza to be a little bit healthier. Three swaps we made were, using Mazola Corn Oil over other cooking oils, using whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour, and loading it up with lots of colorful veggies instead of heavier meats that typically go on pizzas. Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose, cholesterol free cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy* choice for your family. *See Mazola.com for more information on the relationship between corn oil and heart health. It has a variety of uses include baking, grilling, sautéing, stir frying, or mixing up a marinade or dressing.

  5. Pour about 1/2 cup tomato sauce onto your pizza and spread evenly, leaving room around the edges for the crust. Next, add your spinach, before covering it with your mozzarella cheese. Finally, add the rest of your toppings.
  6. Bake the pizza in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes on the top oven rack, allow to cool slightly before cutting and serving.
