#SickJustGotReal $25 Target Gift Card, 20th Century Fox DVD, and Pfizer Pediatrics Prize Giveaway!

Disclosure: This post has been sponsored by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare and 20th Century Fox. All thoughts and reviews are my own.


#SickJustGotReal but we're making it better with time to recuperate, a DVD,
Pfizer Pediatrics and a giveaway for you!
My youngest and I have been knocked out by the 72-hour flu. It totally ruined Valentine's Day, made my son miss one night of his weekly sport activity, and one of his dance lessons. He did not like missing his dance lesson at all. The boy has a new love of football that is unquenchable, but it doesn't top his love of dance. Right now he's in Hip-Hop and loving every second of it. Missing that block of time really bummed him out, but he knew he couldn't make it, and he knew for sure by looking at his mama too, that there was no way I was fit to drive him anywhere, period. We really had it bad!

AMAZING Valentine's Special Running at Hotels.com

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Like many people, travel is one of my most favorite things to do. I like to travel abroad, across the U.S., and even sometimes near home. Recently I wanted to do the latter (can't venture too far away when school is in session). I signed on to Hotels.com, my go-to site when I travel and with the $50 gift card I had, booked a room in no time flat. My out-of-pocket cost? $52 total. Now granted, I had that gift card, but for the room we got, in the stellar location we wanted (and got), it would have been a magnificent deal, even without it! The hotel was in a word: all-around-awesome (okay, maybe that is three words, but I hyphenated to make it one).  ;)

MyCharge HubMax: Get Your Valentine Something They'll Love Year Round!


What do you do when you have both Apple and Androids in the house? Well, one thing you can do that is very smart, is get a MyCharge HubMax that will charge both (at the same time!). Even better? You don't have to worry about finding/toting/storing USB cables because with this device they are already built in! That makes it absolutely perfect for travel, but it also makes it ideal for home.

Welch's Fruit Snack Hearts: Perfect for Valentine's Day!

Each little heart-shaped fruit snack has an emoji face on it (that's cool, right?!)
The packets say, 'to' and 'from' on each one too, so they're perfect for Valentine's Day in the classroom!
Welch's Fruit Snacks are my son's favorite brand, and now they've come out with heart-shaped ones just in time for Valentine's Day. Each little heart has an emoji face on it. I think that is such a cute idea, and emojis are definitely all the rage right now (with the kiddos and adults)! Made with real fruit, and coming in individual/single-size packets with a 'to' and 'from' space already printed on the wrappers, I think these will be the perfect gift for my son (or any child!) to share with his class on the holiday, It is definitely an awesome alternative to candy. AND they come with 28 in a box, which is almost perfect for any class size (don't you hate buying something that has 20 items and then there are 22 students, so you have to buy two and have a bazillion left over?!?). Truly, Welch's has thought of everything. I'm not surprised.


Of course no Valentine's Day would be complete without a little crafting, so we (I say 'we' but honestly, I was just eating those cute little hearts) set out to do both some fruit snack eatin' and some holiday gift makin'. My son took out his sweet little stickers that Welch's sent him, along with some other handy, dandy supplies perfect for creating, and he got busy.


He's nine-years-old now, but thankfully still likes to do things like this (as does his sister who is now all grown up). ;) In this picture you can see the actual colors and shape of the fruit snacks. Of course they taste delicious too (fruity, and not too gummy!), like Welch's always does. They were a great addition to the crafting session, because we did this after school, and everyone knows that kids want/need an afterschool snack (it's the first thing they say when they walk in the door).


He's also not too old to forget to go light on the glitter glue. ;) This always happens initially, and then we back up (wipe off the glue) and try again.


Ah, that's better...


The scissors are the kind that make edges on whatever you're cutting, so that was fun for my son. He likes to add that extra touch of special to things when he's crafting. ;)


He made a hanging heart for me, his sister, his aunt, and his little niece. Pretty sure we're going to all love them so (I don't get mine until February 14th, even though I've clearly already seen it). He's tough like that. ;)



Welch's Fruit Snacks are gluten-free, fat-free, and have no preservatives. They also provide you with 100% of your daily recommended value of Vitamin C and 25% of your daily recommended value of Vitamins A & E. Keep an eye out for the sweet little heart-shaped fruit snacks, and maybe instead of sending candy with the kids on the big day at school (we all remember what a big deal it was to pass around Valentine's Day cards and treats in grade school, right?), consider these instead. They are a great alternative to all that empty sugar so many will be sending, and the kids absolutely love them!

BEDDI Charge for Valentine's Day!


When you go to the hotels, they often have chargers built into some pretty cool places, like the lamps, the desk, or the bedside table. Wouldn't it be great then, if you could do something like that at home? Now you can, with the BEDDI Charge. Quite simply stated, it's an alarm clock with charging ports built-in, and in a word, it is awesome!


The clock has (3) USB chargers built-into the back of it, allowing you to charge your devices while you sleep (and have them nearby so you remember to take them with you when you leave). That's not all, though that feature alone would make me want to purchase this clock.


The sleek looking BEDDI Charge also has a fully dimmable clock face, a nightlight that changes colors for mood (if you'd like to use it), and an alarm that increases volume to ensure you wake up in time to get to work, or wherever it is that you're going.


It's a simple invention that instantly becomes indispensable. It would also make a great Valentine's Day gift, don't you think? Practical (everyone is charging something these days, and everyone still needs to know the time of day), pretty (the changing light is unique and adds an extra special touch to any room), and functional (this clock works like a charm, every time, and that's important when you need a quality alarm). I love mine, and I bet you will love one too!
