Prilosec OTC ~ Everything You Do Without Heartburn

If you are a mom, then I'm sure you know what it feels like to put yourself on the back burner.  Most moms give up a lot of themselves when they have children.  For me, unfortunately it was my education.  I was in my first year of college when I got pregnant.  I did try going back when my oldest was around 1, but it never really worked out.  Other moms give up their career, while others give up there hobbies and passions in life.  Sometimes it isn't our kids that are putting our life on hold, sometimes it is a medical problem ~ heartburn is definitely one that will change the way you live your life. 

I'm sure you have heard of the product Prilosec at some point.  They have been around since 1988, and since 2003 as the very first over the counter (OTC) medication to treat frequent heart burn.  

So as a call-out to all the "passionistas" out there, and as a celebration of things that take us out of everyday stress, Prilosec OTC, dreamed up the "Official Sponsor of Everything You Do Without Heartburn" program.

Consumers will use photos and videos to compete for an average $1,000 “sponsorship” to maximum $4,000 to support their passions in 15 categories, and “take those passions to the next level,” Prilosec OTC brand manager Robert Cleveland said in a press release.

Among the fifteen categories: food and cuisine, arts and crafts, family, home and garden, entertainment and leisure, health and fitness, travel, sports, and professional pursuits.

You need to hurry though -- the deadline is February 22.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Prilosec OTC. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.

I'm an official The View Brand Ambassador

I've watched The View off and on over the years.  I started watching it several years ago.  One thing I have always liked about it, is the topics {Hot Topic especially}~ the debates ~ the information ~ the guests

I hardly ever agree with the hosts anymore, but I love being informed on the topics.  I also absolutely love Joy Behar!  She is funny, and I think I agree with her the most.  Even though, I don't usually agree with a few of the hosts, I love that the show gets me thinking about current events. 

Why my post on The View, well because I have been selected by Mom Central as a Brand Ambassador!  I will probably be posting more on The View over the next 4 weeks.  I think it will be great way to get some discussions rolling, don't you?

Mom Central is also running a great contest right now that I want to tell you about.  One lucky winner will be randomly selected to receive a trip to New York City to watch a taping of The View!  The sweepstakes is open until February 28th.  Here is a link to our sign-up survey for this sweepstakes: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22A5X7KF2CZ

I also have a sneak peek about Mondays show for you ~  Senator Evan Bayth of Indiana will talk exclusively to the hosts of “The View” in his first and only network television appearance since announcing he won’t run for re-election in 2010.  This will happen Live Monday, February 22 on ABC

I am a participant in a Mom Central campaign for ABC Daytime and will receive a tote bag or other The View branded items to facilitate my review.Like this post ~

Alice in Wonderland Scrabble Pendants & Twilight!!!

I am obsessed with Alice in Wonderland right now.  I can't wait for the movie, even though my daughter has her first competition that same weekend.  Total bummer for me & then my other daughter has mandatory dress rehearsal that weekend & her first competition the following weekend.  I swear, they are KILLING ME!  I have no idea when I will get to see this movie, ugh.

Anyways, I found the cutest etsy shop with Awesome prices! The shop is Paper Pistol.  They don't just have Alice either, there are cupcake pendants, Twilight, Peace, Fairy, Keep Calm, Sayings, Alphabets and more.  The prices are amazing as well.  Most of them are $5 with a sale of Buy 2, Get 1 free.  There are also an amazing assortment of tiles at only $3.50 each.

You can read their blog here.
