Double your fun with Doublemint Gum and #MurphyUSA

I had such a great time this weekend. I went on a little time travel. Ok, let me explain. Do you remember, when you were a kid and when you went to your Grandparent's house your Grandmother always had something for you? For me it was Wrigley's Doublemint gum. Every single time.
I had no idea, when I was asked to do this shop for #MurphyUSA and Collective Bias, that it would take me down a path to memory lane.
I went to #MurhpyUSA and bought 2 packs of Doublemint gum. The packs were different. The price was different, but the smell and the taste were the same. It made me smile. Not a grown up, reserved smile that we learn to do as we older, but that little kid smile like I used to get was I was so excited about something. Funny isn't it? How one simple little piece of gum can bring back so many wonderful fuzzy feelings.
Thanks #MurphyUSA and Doublemint gum. You brought my grandmother back for a visit today, and it was a great one.

On a different, not so sentimental note....
My boys had a great time goofing around today making a video/commercial for me. As you can see below, I have the final video embedded into this post. They were goofy, funny and I almost cried from laughing so hard. The only thing I asked for them to say was the punchline, which was 'double your fun with Doublemint gum'. Easy right? One would think. If you want to see the flubs you check them out here, but the one where they got the line right is below. Look at one, or all of them. I had a ball!

Now take a look at my shopping day, running errands and going to #MurphyUSA, below.
