“There isn’t time, so brief is life, for bickerings, apologies, heartburnings, callings to account. There is only time for loving, and but an instant, so to speak, for that.”

Mark Twain

This post is sponsored by Nexium 24HR, but all opinions are Matthew’s & mine. Mostly his, but I’m a beneficiary too.  


I’m from Texas. I love Texas. I cook Texas. I love Matthew too. It’s a hard choice between wonderful Texas food and him. I honestly have to choose him, he’s pretty awesome. He’s a wonderful person, a firefighting hero, a great dad and a heart throb! He has his flaws too, not many really but no one is perfect. One of his biggest flaws is his complaining about my Texas cooking. If you’ve ever met a Texan, you understand how Texas proud we are. A big part of being from Texas is food. He really doesn’t complain about my cooking, (because I’m a wonderful cook) but the heartburn that he tends to get after my dinner nights. It was rough y’all, I’m a Taco Tuesday person. Tuesday is such a boring day of the week, spicing it up with Tacos, Fajitas, Burritos, or Texas Chili makes it so much better. I’m a big believer in big bold flavors, I love all of the spices, pretty tomatoes, bright peppers, crispy onions, fragrant garlic, hot sauce and more. These wonderful flavors are also trigger foods for heartburn sufferers like Matthew.    


That’s why I’m excited to partner with Nexium 24HR to encourage people to fight frequent heartburn and join in all of life’s moments- no matter what’s on the menu. I’m partnering with Nexium 24HR because they helped my partner and honestly me too!    


Matthew has been taking one Nexium 24HR capsule every day and it helps him enjoy Texas food without dreading heartburn later. Nexium 24HR protects him all day AND NIGHT! Before Nexium 24HR, he would be up and down all night trying to not disturb anyone else. I am the lightest sleeper in the world, any movement and I’m wide awake. So he would be up dealing with the pain and me being grumpy from lack of sleep, poor guy.   


Nexium 24HR blocks acid at the source, turning your body’s acid pumps off. This will help you sleep comfortably through the night by reducing heartburn caused interruptions.


Nexium® 24HR is the #1 choice of Doctors for their own frequent heartburn. PPIs, such as Nexium® 24HR, are the only OTC treatments specifically approved and designed for the treatment of frequent heartburn.


Matthew did one course of treatment from Nexium 24HR and is now looking forward to Taco Tuesday as much as the rest of us. It’s also great for his love of Buffalo wings and weekend barbecues!   Imagine the thrill of not having to skip your favorite summer barbecue foods because you have to worry about heartburn later. I’ve even caught him dipping into my stash of hot sauces with the insane Scofield ratings.  

So THANK YOU Nexium 24HR for creating this wonderful product that is helping me enjoy Matthew and spicy wonderful food more. Find out more about Nexium 24HR at their website or on Facebook!
