There is nothing worse than a sharp pain in the middle of your chest. Heartburn . . . it's awful. Do you suffer from heartburn ever? I have been a frequent sufferer of heartburn for the past couple of years and have found the perfect solution that works for me. Nexium 24 HR gives me all day 24 hour relief and all night protection in one little purple pill.

Get Ready for Summer with Nexium #GiveHeartburnARest #CollectiveBias

The past couple of years I have suffered from frequent heartburn. I had even stopped going to restaurants with my family because I was so unsure what food would be a trigger for me to be in some serious pain. During this period I was miserable and in constant pain while trying to find the right mix of medicines that would work for me. I finally found an over the counter medicine that fulfills my needs.

I struggled for quite a while trying to find the best medicine that would work for me and give me all day and all night protection. I would have good days and bad days until I really just stopped going to restaurants all together with my family. I never even wanted to eat food at friend's or family's homes. It is not fun when your family is enjoying time together and you are staying home by yourself in order to avoid any issues with heartburn.

Taking one Nexium 24 HR gives me all-day, all-night protection from the frequent heartburn I suffer. Currently this month you can save $3.00 off the 42ct. Nexium 24 HR at Walgreens. Better still, you can add Nexium 24 HR to your auto-reorder and never be without your purple pill.

 I had periods where I wouldn't eat anything from a restaurant and had to decline so many invites out with friends and family. That period has ended for me! I now take Nexium 24 HR and love that it is available over the counter and is super convenient for me to purchase. I especially love the auto-reorder program with Walgreens.

I am no longer in pain during the day or during the night. One little purple pill alleviates my burning chest issues. A definite first for me!

TV Shows to Stream on Netflix this Summer

While my children are taking a break this summer and not attending summer school, I still want to inspire their learning throughout the summer months. We still school part-part-time three days a week for an hour or so. We do loads of summer reading programs and naturally I look for anything that helps me and my kids keep connecting.

My kids love to listen to any story about myself when I was a child. They will ask me to tell them the same story over and over. It cracks me up. It connects our childhoods; they have something in common with me. There’s something pretty awesome about connecting with my kids over something I loved when I was young.

We also love to connect over all the old-school classics like Scooby-Doo and Mickey Mouse. Cartoons such as the new Netflix original series Inspector Gadget and Danger Mouse are giving us loads to bond over. These new reboots are introducing a whole new generation to some of the most favorite characters.

Must-Watch Throwbacks

  •  Inspector Gadget
  •  Danger Mouse (6/15)
  •  My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
  •  Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends

AND don't forget, there are new shows streaming all month long for parents to connect during the summer months as well. My husband and I recently started to stream Hemlock Grove -- TOTALLY love this show! I was away at summer camp with my girls last week and was able to stream episodes at night while everyone was asleep . . . but shh, because I made the girls have a screen free week! I am also streaming Between . . . have you seen this yet? LOVE it! Another new series that began this month is Sense8. If you haven't' noticed, my husband and I really enjoy Sci-Fi!!

New to Netflix This May #StreamTeam

There's a lot of great series and shows coming to Netflix this month. Like,  Legally Blonde and Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde! And another great Netflix original is being introduced. Grace and Frankie, Netflix's new funny and fearless original comedy featuring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston. It is the perfect example of how today’s families can shift, rearrange and blend in unexpected ways.

GRACE AND FRANKIE  5/08/15 In GRACE AND FRANKIE, Jane Fonda (“Grace”) and Lily Tomlin (“Frankie”) star as two women whose lives are suddenly turned upside down when their husbands reveal they are gay and leave them for each other. Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, they form an unlikely bond to face an uncertain future together and discover a new definition of “family,” with laughter, tears and plenty of mood enhancers along the way. 

BETWEEN 5/21/15 BETWEEN is the story of a town under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody except those 21 years old and under. The series explores the power vacuum that results when a government has quarantined a 10-mile diameter area and left the inhabitants to fend for themselves.  **The show will air 6 episodes. One episode every Thursday at 8:30pm PT, starting 5/21**

JEN KIRKMAN: I'M GONNA DIE ALONE (AND I FEEL FINE) 5/22/15 A Netflix comedy special featuring renowned story-teller Jen Kirkman, best known for her appearances on Chelsea Lately and the award-winning web series Drunk History.
