As my husband has grown emotionally, intellectually and professionally, I wanted to do something to honor his growth. I have enjoyed seeing him rise to the occasion when things got tough during studies while in dental school. I've smiled as he explained procedures that he was once unsure about to being confident enough to teach someone else. 

Being in the front row seats, on the sidelines and backstage crew of his life, is an honor. 

When he had finished his second year of dental school and Midwestern University did their "bridging ceremony" as they graduate from didactics to clinic, I gave Ric his first 'professional' watch. The Dover - Olive and Acacia wood watch from Jord (pronounced Yode) 
Luxury Watches.

When I first came across Jord watches, I knew I couldn't have found a more perfect watch speaking 'Ric'. My husband is a man of the outdoors. Being in the sun, mountains and nature is his happy place. Where he rejuvenates and recharges. A watch made of wood, yes, that's a watch for Ric.

*Fun fact, Ric's wedding ring is also a wood ring.

To keep on with the tradition I had set for him and his 'professional advancements', I knew another watch was in order for a graduation gift. Again, I partnered with Jord Watches to gift him the perfect one. For graduation I chose the Hyde Ebony and Iron. It is super minimal and masculine. We engraved the bottom to say his new title and the date it was earned.

The cedar box they are stored in can also be customized and engraved. These boxes are high quality and perfect to keep the watches safe from kiddie hands. They are beautiful, enough that I don't even mind having it sit on our counter or bedside table!

If you search any 'best gifts for men', 'top ten gifts for the man in your life' or '88 best gifts for men' list and you will always, always, always find a watch. That's because a watch is classic. A watch is timeless -- pun intended ;) They hold their value, they hold memory and they hold meaning. A watch can be passed down from generation to generation and when received is an honor.

If you're special man has an event coming up, honor him. Father's Day is on the horizon too. Do him a solid and buy him an esteemed watch. Because I love ya'll so much, I wanted to give ya a jumpstart on that gift. Jord and I are doing a giveaway to help you give the perfect gift!

the caripro ultrasonic toothbrush will change your life.
that's all i need to say. blog post, over.

really, i should stop there. i could stop there. but some of you will want more, so i will give you more.

switching over to the caripro ultrasonic toothbrush will be one of the best decisions you make in 2019.

this is no ordinary toothbrush, it's not really an electric toothbrush because it vibrates at much higher frequencies, allowing it to be qualified as the worlds first ultrasonic toothbrush.

for comparisons sake, imagine how much damage a 3.0 earthquake can cause...that is the electric toothbrush you are using right now. compare that to the vibrations and damage of a 10.0 magnitude earthquake. 
10.0 brings eerrrrrything to the ground.
well this toothbrush shakes eveerrrything out of your teeth. i'm talking about that poppy seed that gets stuck in the groove of your back teeth....yeah, it brought that

the caripro ultrasonic toothbrush has five different settings:
1. clean
2. white
3. massage
4. gum care
5. sensitive

i have tested all five settings. the top three i use are: 1, 2, and 5. if you remember back a bit ago i did a blog post mentioning my sensitive teeth. i do believe this ultrasonic toothbrush does have a difference between all the modes to feel a difference when it is cleaning your teeth. it is so gentle that the 'clean mode' is sufficient majority of the time, but every once in awhile if my teeth have had a sensitive day, for whatever reason,  and i just want to be safe, then i will use the 'sensitive' mode and have zero issues.

your gums will be grateful.

your teeth will glimmer and shine like never before;

and lets be real, we drop over $$$$ on massages for our body, buuuttt why aren't we treating our mouth with the same respect and luxury. you're mouth helps do everything for you; eat, breathe, smile, communicate.

guys, i told ric when i got this that i had 'found the best toothbrush ever.' and encouraged him to try it that it would 'change his life too'. 
(grab extra toothbrush heads: here)

his response: 'that's a bold statement, amanda.'

me: 'dude, i know, i know...but I AM SERIOUS.'

i was serious then and i am even more serious now. you want to try this toothbrush.

if my word isn't enough...and some of you are on the fence. not sure how you're still there, but i respect ya....i will throw in a discount code.
use: shermanarmytb20 for 20% off your entire order.

again for the people in the back. 20% OFFDISCOUNT CODE: shermanarmytb20

wait there's more 

to make things even easier for one of you. i have partnered with caripro to 
giveaway a FREE TOOTHBRUSH to one winner!! 😄
