This Gets The Gold

I love me some Olympics.

Joel and I have been snuggled up on the couch each night - rooting for people we don't even know and tearing up when they win.

And have you noticed how every single commercial is also branded with the Olympics? Heaven forbid we just drink a regular Coca-Cola during the broadcast. :-) I'm not mocking it so much as simply enjoying the fact that I am a marketers dream during this time, and here is my favorite commercial so far:

HOW do they do that? How do some people sit around in a conference room and come up with a marketing strategy that will have my eyes well up in less than a minute and ready to buy Tide and Crest?

I'm such a pushover. :-)

Another gal I follow which you probably do too since you follow Angie...did that make any sense? :) Anyway, Jessica Turner posted this last night too. I hadn't seen this commercial, we don't have TV. But I love it, thanks for sharing it. I've started getting emotional about Mackenzie getting ready to turn 3, this commercial made me feel like that's ok.

I (randomly) came across your blog recently and I really enjoy it. You have the rare gift of transparency, and it is that transparency that not only connects people to your writing but, more importantly, allows them to feel more comfortable being transparent and vulnerable to those around them. And I don't know about you, but the more that others make transparent there own struggles, the more comforted I become in mine. Keep up the good work.

P.S. Glad to see that your Olivia is doing so well, mine is too.
