Sponsored: Who Doesn’t Love A Year of Surprises? #MC #MR30

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Marriott Rewards®. I received Marriott Points to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Marriott Year of Surprises

I love a good surprise.  Okay, let me rephrase that, I love a good surprise that I am not expecting.  However, if you tell me I am going to be getting a surprise I will go crazy until I get it out of you.  Thankfully, Marriott Rewards®. is giving a lot of surprises to people, this year, who aren’t expecting it.  Like, for instance, I was so surprised when I was asked to be a Marriott Rewards ambassador, I literally squealed when I got them email.  As part of my ambassadorship, I am here today to tell you some fun that’s going on and will be bringing two more posts down the road!
