Worth The Time (Vol. 1)



I thought I'd try something a little new here and do a once-a-month post about different things that I think are "worth the time".  It could be books, movies, audiobooks, podcasts, articles, blogs, board games...it might be anything.  I'm just going to keep you all on your toes!

The Selection 

I've been really into watching the History Channel lately, and they've had some great new programming over the last couple years.  My latest favorite is The Selection.

This show takes a group of civilians and puts them through something that is like the training for the special forces - Seals, Rangers, Green Berets.  They seemed pretty "easy" on everyone in the first episode and Derek was ready to write the show off as not being realistic (my grandpa was in the army, and we've heard his basic training stories, which were worse than what they did on the first episode).  But I was still interested, so we watched, and it definitely got more intense!  Those instructors are tough! I'm still not convinced that it is exactly like special forces training, because I imagine that would be even more demanding, but it's so interesting to watch and get a taste of what those people in our military overcome in order to be prepared to protect us.  It's fascinating, and it makes me respect our armed forces even more.

It's just starting to get good now - if you get the History Channel, you can catch up on all the episodes here or on the app!

This Recipe

I made this pumpkin streusel coffee cake for our MOPS meeting the other day.  I recently read on Gina's blog that you shouldn't make something for the first time when it's for someone else, guests, etc.  That makes a lot of sense to me, so I made it and decided I would scratch it and make something else if it was no good.  But it was good.  The perfect amount of moistness, and the perfect amount of pumpkin flavor without being too overwhelming.  I used caramel flavoring instead of vanilla extract.  It was a winner!


The Sonicare Section On Amazon 

(Affiliate link below, but only because I really love Sonicare toothbrushes.)


This one is more a "worth the money" than a "worth the time" pick - but hey, time is money, huh?  And your teeth are worth something.  I stumbled across this AMAZING sale on Amazon of Sonicare toothbrushes, and as a dental hygienist, I feel compelled to share it.  You can take the girl out of the dental hygiene world, but you can't take the dental hygienist out of the girl.

Seriously though, these are my personal favorite toothbrushes.  When I brush with my Sonicare, I can feel the difference in my gums.  And I'm not just saying that as some hygienist ploy to get you to buy the good toothbrush!  I can really feel it, personally.

I bought Derek and myself new Sonicare toothbrushes, because the basic model is only $20! That is a great deal!  I've been really missing my old Sonicare since it broke, and I'm sharing the good toothbrush love.

(Check out these coupons though if you want a fancier model, because you can get an even better discount until 1/28.)

Alright, I'll be back again next month with more worth-the-time favorites!  I'm off to watch the inauguration!

  3. Hey Callie! What do your kids use to brush their teeth? I have been debating switching to an electric toothbrush for them...

    1. For my kids I just use a regular toothbrush, and I brush their teeth for them! I think electric toothbrushes are fine, but with kids you just have to be careful that they don't press too hard. Electric toothbrushes are meant to be used with very light pressure, and if you use them too aggressively they can cause wear on your teeth! So just be aware of that!
