Review: Genteel Lancing Device, plus get $15.00 off

We are so excited to do a review of the Genteel Lancing Device! We have heard over and over about how wonderful this device is for sore & worn-out fingers. We wondered if it was really worth the price… so Luke tested it to find out! Is the Genteel really painless? The Genteel is most… Continue reading Review: Genteel Lancing Device, plus get $15.00 off

Friday night pizza & Oreos: Chicago’s Downtown Eatery & peanut butter.

During the week, Joel asked if I’d ever heard about Chicago’s Downtown Eatery in Bristol. I hadn’t. But boy am I glad he found it!  They claim this pizza is deep dish, Chicago-style. It has a thicker crust, but I’m not sure I’d call it deep dish. The toppings seemed to be pretty typical. Delicious,… Continue reading Friday night pizza & Oreos: Chicago’s Downtown Eatery & peanut butter.

Friday night pizza and Oreos review: Enzo’s & pumpkin spice.

This week Joel and I decided to actually go out and get our pizza. It wasn’t fancy, but it was delicious! And Luke stayed home, so it was kind of a date!

She’d sneak him a few bucks after he was finished with his spaghetti so he could go and get some… Continue reading Friday night pizza & Oreos review: Mancino’s & candy corn

Friday night pizza & Oreo review: Volcano Pizza

Week two of our new family tradition, we wanted to order Mancino’s, but they wouldn’t answer their phone to place an order. So, we called Volcano Pizza. I’ve never had pizza from this place before. Here are the official unofficial results: As you can see, we weren’t really a fan. We got whatever their version… Continue reading Friday night pizza & Oreo review: Volcano Pizza

Friday night pizza and Oreo review: Paesello’s & lemon thins.

Last week we started a new Friday night tradition- pizza and Oreos. We plan to try a different pizza place and a different flavor of Oreos each week. After dinner, we will rate the pizza and the Oreos… and, just for fun, track blood sugars before and after eating. Our first pizza place for review… Continue reading Friday night pizza and Oreo review: Paesello’s & lemon thins.

Review: GrifGrips

We recently ordered, received, and used our very first GrifGrip to help secure Luke’s Dexcom on his arm. We were pretty excited when they arrived at the beginning of summer. Luke has swimming practice everyday, in addition to running around in the heat while playing. We both thought it’d be a good idea to have a… Continue reading Review: GrifGrips
