Win a Trip to “O You!” (sponsored)

Ever watched Oprah and just wanted to walk into her show sit on Suze Orman’s lap as she redoes your finances and have Dr. Oz look into your ears?  Well, that’s not going to happen, but the next best thing.
you could win a trip to go to  O You! O, The Oprah Magazine’s Signature Event.
Look for the key under your seat!  I’m very excited to tell you that I have been chosen as the only blogger by Clorox to give away a trip to Atlanta to attend this SOLD OUT event.


All day Oprah’s faves..and OPRAH herself will be giving lectures on how to live your life to the fullest.  The tickets, if they were still for sale are $125. Clorox toilet wand is one of the sponsors of the event and is paying for one lucky Cool Mom viewer/reader to fly to Atlanta, putting them up in a hotel for the event October 15th.  I am going as well and will be doing some of my Cool Moming (yeah, it’s a verb) on the ground (Nate, oh Nate, it’s me, Daphne, we did a segment on Fashion Team once, oh Nate!) Here is a partial list of speakers:

Oprah Winfrey, founder and editorial director of O, The Oprah Magazine and CEO and chief creative officer of OWN
The top 20 things Oprah knows for sure

Clorox, the makers of the ToiletWand, reached out to me to help promote this event. I will be attending the event, and my airfare and hotel is being taken care of.  Which means I also get to visit with my cousin Sue-Ellen, so that’s a plus.
So how can you join me – and that Winfrey lady–in Atlanta?

Yes, toilet cleaner, but let’s face it would we be living our life to the fullest without modern plumbing?  I know when we say what we are grateful at Thanksgiving I so frequently mention it at the top of my list my family makes fun of me. To which I say, the pilgrims wish they had a toilet.

  2. I FB liked “Ode to the Commode”. Its funny… today I had sick kids home from school, and Tuesday is .. well, clean bathroom day in my world. I know, sad. Anal even. ha.. sorry. Butt it is. 🙂 ANYWAYS, I do the commodes.. And.. hopefully, I am setting an example for my kids (just like my mom)…. showing them what cleaning is all about. 🙂

  3. I liked ‘Ode to the Commode’…. and I am the number one scrubber in my household…..I love those disposable toilet wands! I’d love the chance to meet you and see Oprah…wow!

    Why do you bother asking who cleans the toilet? Of course WE do! Lol

    Oh, yeah, and I’d love to see that WInfrey lady, too. 😉

  5. I did the same as well, tweeted/followed on Twitter.
    A trip is so needed right now! Universe, I’m putting it out there to you 🙂

  6. I like “Ode to the Commode” on fb…and I am the primary toilet scrubber…the “man” and the “little men” just try to hit the toilet.

  7. I Like ” Ode to the Commode” it is a great site and who would have known? Well let’s get to cleaning the toilet, and it is ME! yes and you know I love a clean toilet so no problem! Sure would be fantastic to go to Atlanta to meet and greet the one and only “Oprah”!

  8. I “liked” Ode to the Commode on Facebook, and the Clorox products are what we use. The toilet wand, makes it easy for my 13 yr old daughter to help with chores. It is up to us women of the house to get the dirty job done!
    On my way to Twitter now for the extra entry!
    Thank you coolmom 🙂

  9. I usually do the toilet scrubbing in my house, but I have become a slacker since I have 3 grown men in the house (ew!) so my husband has become pretty good at doing it as well – lucky me 🙂

    I already “Like” Ode to the Commode on Facebook. I am now following on Twitter, and wrote on the wall.

    So, please “enter me”!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. I like ode to the commode on facebook, and I ike many of the previous women am the one who cleans the toilets in our home.

  11. Of course I liked Ode to the Commode!!! I even liked them on Facebook. Since I am the toilet commander in my home, anything that makes it easier is reason to cause a “like” ….. 🙂 Although after nearly loosing my home due to the an income loss…. I am so happy to have a toilet to scrub.

  12. I just “liked” the Ode to the Commode here and will do it on Facebook also. I am the officer in charge when it comes to the bathroom. Besides if anyone else did it i would FALL over from sheer excitement that i would most likely get hurt. 🙂
    Thanks for the chance to win this. Anything to make the job “more exciting”. 🙂
    Would love to meet Oprah and again, thanks for this chance to do it!

  13. I like Ode to the Camode on fb. I am the official bathroom scrubber. Thanks for the great contest.
    Good luck everyone!

  14. I liked Ode to the Commode on FB. I am the official commode scrubber – and it is quite a job around my house. Three boys and a husband…need I say more! And, to add to the joy, I also work for a drywall company and guess what…I get to clean those toilets too!! I definitely want to use the wand there.
    Thanks for the second chance!

  15. I am a fan of Ode the Commode, I am just happy to have another to enter. I am not a big fan of cleaning the commode so I get the man of the house to do it faithfully. When he’s not around out comes the face mask, gloves, and the ugly face…

  16. I like Ode to the Comode on Facebook and I’ve always liked Oprah.
    I do all the toilet scrubbing in my house. Which I dislike, by the way!

  17. I liked Ode to the Comode on Facebook. I would also love love love to meet Nate! I would love to ask him with I should do with my fireplace mantle gone wrong. Is it bad that I’m already taking pictures for him???

  18. Oh and I am not the tiolet cleaner in my house… I just find that if I wait long enough my hubby will do it! Until he catches on thats my game plan!
