Proctor and Gamble were excellent business men and a modest candle making business turned into the empire that now owns Pampers and many many more brands. We know this company as P&G and I love working with them. Pampers paid for my travel expenses and accommodations to their headquarters where I took this photo of the Candle Boxes and then Soap!.
In honor of Family Movie Night brought to you by P&G and Walmart on April 16th Fox will be airing “Truth Be Told”. You may have already have read my Truth Be Told Review and know that it’s going to be a great movie. A little misunderstanding, turned into a lie and that lie was a lot of fun. Watch as things come together and fall apart and…well you’ll just have to watch and see how the movie ends.
Starring Candace Cameron Bure, David James Elliott and Ronny Cox, Truth Be Told plays upon the old adage, that “honesty is the best policy,” and according to Colorado’s leading marriage counselor, Annie Morgan (Candace Cameron Bure, "Full House" and "Make It Or Break It"), honesty is the key to successful long-term relationships. Ironically, Annie has never been married and doesn’t always follow her own advice. Truth Be Told will take viewers on an entertaining yet touching journey as Annie begins to realize that the truth may have its consequences, but ultimately it’s what opens our hearts and brings out the best in each other.

I’m so excited about the next installment to Family Movie Night with P&G and Walmart on Fox. On April 16th Fox will be airing “Truth Be Told”. This family safe movie stars Candace Cameron Bure, a woman already well known for her family friendly past and best selling author of a new book. Also in the movie David James Elliott, "JAG" and "Scoundrels", and Ronny Cox, "Stargate SG-1" I’m a HUGE Stargate Fan! HUGE, I recognized him right away. Oh and you’ll see someone from Star Trek at the end of the movie. LOVE IT!
Growing up, we watched Full House every Friday night, when TV was safe to sit down together and watch. I loved the memories of spending time together as a family, laughing and just enjoying each other and the shows were much different than they are now. Now, I don’t let my kids watch any of the programs that are on. We just don’t enjoy TV the way we used to. Which is why I whole heartedly support the return of Family Movie night. Be, a TV show that lasts only 30 minutes or an entire movie, I want wholesome family programming to return.
In “Truth Be Told” Annie Morgan (Candace Cameron Bure) is a very successful marriage counselor who believe in long-term relationships even though she’s never been in one. An opportunity falls into her lap, she is offered a job from Terrance Bishop (Ronny Cox) to be a radio host for marriage counseling. The catch is she has to bring her family that doesn’t actually exist. So she convinces and old college friend Mark Crane, who Terrance actually believes is her husband anyways to go along with her on a lie so she can get the job. Mark’s teenage children go along for the ride. Of course they have quite an adventure together but was it worth it to begin with a lie.
This is a super cute movie and I really enjoyed it. It’s completely safe for the whole family, the only question is how much lying is ok? In our family we’re completely against lying at all. And in the movie, no one was ok with the lie. Annie, kept trying to tell the truth but she always let something get in the way. And for some reason, Mark felt it was Annie’s responsibility to tell the truth. I don’t want to give too much of the movie away but there is a lesson to be learned, and they learned their lesson.
Tune in to the premiere of “Truth Be Told” on Saturday, April 16th on FOX at 8pm/7ct.

I often wonder why people jump to conclusions and judge each other. Like me, yeah, I’m guilty of judging other’s and when I do, I stay up all night worrying about how cruel what I said was. Being a blogger, it’s reversed too. People don’t know anything about me other than what I write on this blog. But they are so quick to judge and write cruel comments. I know, I’m putting myself out there, but it still hurts. You should take a walk in My Shoes before you make a comment that could hurt! That’s advice that you should use on anyone you know, even strangers. Especially strangers, talking about the way people are dressed, or how they talk or look is just wrong!
This weekend, I had the opportunity to watch preview A Walk In My Shoes this weekend and it was really good. What a thoughtful way to enter the lives of a triangle of people. In A Walk In My Shoes Trish (Nancy Travis) a mother that is way to busy to pay any attention to her family becomes Cindy Kremer (Jana Lee Hamblin) a doting mother not able to make ends meet. When Trish becomes the mother of Mikey (Jackson Pace, a really cute kid with a lot of spunk) and Justin (Cameron Deane Stewart, who has family local to me) they are kicked out of their house with an eviction notice. To help Trish out, a crazy lady Molly (Yara Martinez) and a Marine Jake (Philip Winchester) trying to adjust to civilian life. Family movies always make me cry and this one had me crying in the first five minutes. It was a great movie of a family finding out how to deal with the death of their father, and finding a way to get back on their feet with the help of another family. This is not your typical “Freaky Friday” type of movie. Here only one person makes the trade as she learns not to judge someone before taking A walk in their shoes.
Filmed in Portland Oregon, A Walk In My Shoes is the next installment of Proctor & Gamble and Walmart’s Family Movie night. A Walk In My Shoes premiers December 3 at 8/7c on NBC. I was on the movie set of A Walk In My Shoes in Portland and I learned a lot about how Walmart and P & G plan on bringing Movie Night Back.
While there, I had the opportunity to meet the cast and some of my piers as we were on the set of A Walk in My Shoes.
I was amazed at how it seemed like each person on the project felt like they have a stake and it is there personal responsibility to bring quality television back.

For family night to truly return to television, it is up to the viewers, the viewers are going to have to demand it. Unless we want to watch quality TV and refuse to watch crap, it won’t change. Help Family night make a come back and watch A Walk in My Shoes December 3rd 8/7c on NBC. You know, A Walk In My Shoes could become a great TV Series, tell me what you think?

Once a month Proctor and Gamble put out a coupon booklet called P & G BrandSAVER. This insert contains great money saving coupons to purchase Proctor and Gamble products. This week there will be certain items selected to be part of a new campaign: Have You Tried This Yet?
Have You Tried This Yet? will be supported through a variety of consumer touch-points. On Sunday, October 31, P&G will distribute a brandSAVER, a complimentary coupon booklet that features more than $113 in savings on the campaign’s featured innovative products, in local newspapers throughout the country.
In a national survey conducted in September 2010 among 1,000 nationally representative women in the United States, 48 percent state the majority of their daily stress occurs inside their homes, with more than half saying they often feel overwhelmed with all the responsibilities they face in caring for their loved ones, including shopping for all their families’ needs.
In addition to the insert, from October 22 – 31, a free, interactive Have You Tried This Yet? Pop-Up experience will be open to the public in New York City. Located at 101 West 57th Street (near 6th Avenue), the Pop-Up will be open Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. and Saturday – Sunday, 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. and will offer free demonstrations and product samples from brands such as Tide®, Bounty®, Pringles®, Charmin®, Febreze®, COVERGIRL®, and Olay®, allowing consumers to experience first-hand the innovations and value each product offers.
“At P&G we are committed to responding to our consumers’ needs and providing straightforward solutions for everyday issues,” says Nataraj Iyer, Associate Marketing Director P&G U.S. Operations. Fifty-one percent of women said they feel overwhelmed when shopping for family essentials. “The Have You Tried This Yet? initiative offers many of P&G’s most innovative products, which can help moms conveniently meet their daily needs, as well as those of their families.”
I love Proctor & Gamble, we use so many of their products and I love that we can save money while doing it. I was interviewed by Proctor and Gamble at BlogHer and they asked me if I was familiar with all of the products Proctor & Gamble makes. I’m very familiar with their brands because of the BrandSaver and all of their opportunities on-line to try products for free. For budget friendly ideas from value blogger Kim Danger, as well as additional information on the Have You Tried This Yet? campaign and the NYC Pop-Up experience, visit www.pgtryit.com.
Proctor & Gamble sent me product samples featured in this month’s coupon insert in exchange for this post! Be sure to check out the savings and save some money.
I hate visiting the dentist and have to report that I go very irregularly. I went to the dentist last week right before a bottle of Crest Pro Health mouth rinse showed up on my door step. It was four years since the last time I went. And four years ago I knew I had some cavities that I needed to take care of, I just didn’t want to. They don’t cause me any pain so I just didn’t bother. My visit actually was quite pleasant as far as dentist visits go. The entire office was nice and no one pressured me about how long it had been since my last visit. My results were quite good considering my past. I have three cavities that I need filled and the dentist said they are all very small and will be easy to take care of.
I’m still a little nervous about going back though and having those cavities filled. The dentist recommended that I brush more on the inside of my mouth where my tongue is, use an electric toothbrush which I already do, and visit the dentist every six months.
I decided to start using a mouth wash in addition to their recommendations. I have always enjoyed using a mouth wash, my mouth just feels so much cleaner after I use one.
Provides Excellent Oral Care for a Better Dental Check-Up
Through the Use of Fluoride
Crest Pro-Health Complete contains fluoride to help prevent cavities and strengthen enamel.
Crest Pro-Health Complete provides six benefits in one and helps users achieve a better checkup at their next dental visit by strengthening teeth and helping to prevent cavities.
Crest Pro-Health Complete strengthens your teeth, cleans your mouth and fights bad breath – all without the burn of alcohol!
Since I received the Crest Pro Health at this perfect time, I’ll actually be able to see a difference before I go to the dentist again. I’m quite excited about a few different things. One, the color is beautiful and you know it’s Zoe’s favorite color, so I didn’t even let her see it. She’s just going to want to drink it and I can’t let that happen. Two, it is supposed to re-build enamel while preventing cavities, cleaning my teeth, freshening my breath all without the burn of alcohol. And there is no burn. I’ve been using it for four days now. The Third thing that excites me is that when I spit, it’s chunky, so it makes me think that it is actually working. Yeah, it’s kind of grouse too, but not really because it’s purple!
“I wrote this review while participating in a test drive campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Crest and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.”
Tonight on NBC the second movie from Proctor & Gamble, and Walmart, The Jenson Project will be airing at 8/7 Central. Tune in with your entire family!
I spent a few days in June with Proctor & Gamble and Walmart in Portland Oregon on the set of the third Family night Movie, “A Walk in My Shoes”. I was joined by 5 other bloggers for actor interviews and project discussions. The importance of sitting down together as a family weighs heavily on parents minds, on set and off. During the interviews the actors expressed how they were all very excited to be working on this project. Working on a family oriented movie that their families could be proud of was very important to them.
We watched the process of filming a scene, and how the producer watches it from behind. They film it with cameras in different locations and then move the cameras and film it again. Then they repeat this about 20 times to make sure they got the shot and then the magic happens.
They made this same kind of magic happen for me. During the day they followed us around with cameras all day. I was interviewed on camera and they pieced this together. Check me out!
Support Family night by watching The Jensen Project tonight on NBC.
P&G and Walmart are in the movie making business. What’s their motive? Other than the obvious, they want to bring back family night on TV. Remember when TV used to be decent and everyone could sit down together as a family and watch TV? I do!
Now, I don’t even trust the Disney Channel after Playhouse Disney goes off the air, as soon as you hear Ooh and Aah sing, “So Long, Far Well” I run for the remote. You may think I’m crazy, but I know other parents feel the way I do, at least my neighbor across the street as does. So I applaud what P&G and Walmart are doing.
On Friday, which means in five days from now, the second movie The Jenson Project will be airing on NBC. Tune in July 16, 2010 at 8/7c. Among the cast of The Jenson Project are two actors I remember watching as a kid with my family. Kelly Martin from Life Goes On, Christy and ER, and LeVar Burton from Reading Rainbow and Star Trek. I loved all of those TV shows! Randy Jackson produced the soundtrack featuring Brooke White and Jordin Sparks. The movie/soundtrack will be available in a combo pack the day after the movie airs at Walmart. I was unable to attend the premier in Hollywood but I did receive a behind the scenes look at the movie. I can’t wait until I can view the entire movie, it’s fast paced like 24, and very high tech, double life-like Alias.
The thrilling science fiction plot of ‘The Jensen Project’ focuses on the Thompson family, who are reintroduced to The Jensen Project, a secret community of geniuses conducting advanced underground research to solve the world’s most difficult problems. The family is forced into a frantic pursuit to keep a potentially dangerous technology from falling into the wrong hands, and rediscover the importance of honesty, courage and being there for one another. The film features Kellie Martin, Brady Smith, Justin Kelly, LeVar Burton, Patricia Richardson and Alyssa Diaz.

This giveaway is a sponsored product post and giveaway. I have a relationship with Family Movie Night (P&G and Walmart), having been sent to Oregon to go behind the scenes of the third movie, having been invited to see the movie premier of The Jenson Project, and I received press materials for the first movie, the second movie and hopefully the third movie. Disclosure is everything!!!
