When Oprah announced to the world that she would be ending her self-titled daytime talk show, my heart crumbled a bit. Yes, I was one of those. I was that woman who devoted an uninterrupted hour of the day to watch Oprah share her views and opinions on various topics. Topics that often left me either clinching a piece of Kleenex in my hand for those "ugly cry" moments or beaming with hope that I may one day appear on her show to hear the words, "you get a car!"
Only one of the two happened. (Side note: I did receive a call from Oprah's producers to appear on a Mother's Day show years ago. That, in itself, was exciting enough for me.)
But my chances to be in the presence of thee Oprah Winfrey have not completely gone away. Thanks to Giant Food and P&G (Procter & Gamble), one grand prize winner will win a VIP experience to attend Oprah's The Life You Want Weekend when it hits Washington, D.C from September 19th to September 20th.

This is followed by a day-long event on Saturday, where Oprah and her hand-picked “life trail-blazers” will lead a gathering of thousands. In the weeks leading up to Oprah’s show, Giant Food and P&G will support women’s empowerment through donations to local charitable organizations through the 11 Weeks of Empowerment campaign.Here is what you all you have to do:

(ARV $198 per prize)I feel like my odds are great considering this giveaway is only open to residents of Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. I should probably go grab my bucket list and a pencil now so that I can scratch: "Meet Oprah Winfrey" off of it. I have to speak it into existence, right?!
