My GameDay Soup For Souper Bowl Sunday #GameDayTraditions

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/P&G



   My husband and I are not huge football fans, but we love watching the big game at the end of the season. Our GameDay Tradition is to watch the big game at church with all our friends and family. Our church goes all out for the big game and throws a wonderful party. The party includes the game on a big screen, plenty of food, and plenty of conversations. There is also plenty of fun too. Our church members love to cook also, so we always have some sort of contest for the best food. One year the food contest was for the best soup. My husband and I both love to cook, we also try to out cook each other with our cooking. So we each made a soup for our Souper Bowl Sunday party at church. I made a wonderful Vegetarian Mushroom Barley White Bean Stew and my husband made one with meat. I don't remember if our soups won or not and don't ask me which team won that year. All I remember is the fun I had eating and talking with my friends. I may have watched some great commercials too.

     My GameDay Tradition starts off with a trip to Walmart to pick up all the ingredients to make my soup. While I am shopping for food, I also use this time to pick up a few items that are needed for my husband and I to look our best for the big game. We needed some toothpaste to keep our breath smelling fresh for all the conversations that I will be having during the big game. Into the cart went my favorite toothpaste. Crest Prohealth Advance Toothpaste does a great job of keeping my gums healthy. Crest also gives me stronger teeth.


 While I was shopping for toothpaste, I discovered a cool rechargeable toothbrush that I just had to have. I love that the Oral B Vitality has a round brush to remove more plaque than my manual toothbrush. It also has MicroPulse bristles to clean between my teeth. The two-minute timer will help me to brush longer and a rechargeable battery means I don't have to replace batteries. Another cool feature to this toothbrush is the indicator bristles that fade to let me know it is time to replace the head.





 While I was shopping at Walmart for all my other GameDay Tradition items, my husband called me. He was out of razors and needed me to pick up a new one for him. My husband did not need to tell me which kind of razor to get as he will only use Gillette Fusion ProGlide on his face. I don't complain at buying him a new razor as I love a clean shaved face on my man. My man needs a smooth, clean shaved face while watching the game if he wants any touchdown  kisses from me. The Gillette Fusion Proglide has all these cool features to give my man a smooth face.



                                                                          FlexBall Technology for maximum contact
                                                                          Precision trimmer on the back for accurate edging
                                                                          Gillette's thinnest, finest razor blades for less tug and pull
                                                                          Enhanced Lubrastrip for smooth glide

  6. So glad this is a vegetarian option that will still fill you up. Perfect now that it's finally getting a bit cooler here in FLorida. PS: I love the smaller head on the Oral-B Vitality; better than others I've tried.
