I Heart ProActiv

Funny things happen in my life and sometimes the weirdest things occur as a result.  The best example of it is an impending commercial I am going to be on.  Yes... I am going to be gracing the little screen with my presence and telling the story of my skin on a ProActiv commercial!  It all started on a late night whim when I saw an infomercial for ProActiv and I was hooked (as I often am with infomercials - they are just so convincing!).  When I finally got my order in the mail, I was so excited to start using it - I have had mediocre skin since my awkward teenage years and was so looking forward to promised perfection!!!  I read the entire information brochure in detail and was anxious to get started.  There was a part where it told you to take before and after pictures and write your story for some free product.  Since I am always up for "free" I took the required photos and started using the product.  Turned out I didn't need to use the "60 day money back guarantee" because I fell in love with it!!  So I mailed in my pictures, waited for my free product and thought nothing more of it.  Then I got a very random phone call from the people at ProActiv asking me to tell them more about my experience.  As I was still babysitting, I was thrilled for an adult convo and diversion, even if it was talking about my acne!  By the end of the conversation, Tamra said, "You have informercial written all over you and we would love to fly you to San Francisco to film you!"  



Stunned silence....



"Huh?"



The commercial is set for July (my MIL Clare is going to watch the kids and can't do it until then) and Paul and I will fly down for a whole week of near childless bliss!  (I think Ezra, aka "Saskatoon Fats" will be crashing I mean joining us.)  Heaven thank ProActiv!!!! 

Now if only I could lose 30 lbs of  "having 4 babies chub"...

That's Fantastic!! And in SF too! What great luck. I've always looked at those products - and wondered if they are any good. I'm sold already - just from your blog.

Will you meet Jessica Simpson???

And last I saw you, you look wonderful - 30 lbs??? You wouldn't exist!

You will make a fabulous spokesperson for Proactive...although, I always thought you had beautiful skin - even as a teenager!

We should get together while you're in Cali...although, we're planning to be in Calgary for most of July so I might miss you.

In answer to your questions: For St. George's Medical School, all the theory and class work is done here in Grenada. The clinical rotations are completed in affiliated hospitals throughout the USA.(So, it's still a 4 year program) We were fortunate enough to be placed in a hospital where we won't have to move for 2 years - New Jersey!! Then we've officially graduated and move on to residency.

Does that make sense? Are you still confused?

Enjoy the holiday.
