#SickJustGotReal

Cold and flu season in our house is a nightmare. With 8 kids, they pass germs like crazy! Playdates, school, birthday parties, church activities, even trips to the park and the grocery store expose the kids to more germs than I even want to think about. So, naturally, someone ends up sick. Then, just as one gets better, two more get sick. It’s a viscous cycle that we can’t ever seem to beat.

Thankfully, we can stock up on Pfizer Pediatric products at Target when Sick Gets Real in our house. They help us be prepared for fevers, coughs, and colds that come our way and want to linger in my kids.

captive

Captive is based on a true story about the power of faith over fear. It is the story of how two lost souls collided. Brain Nichols is on the run and desperate to make contact with his brand new baby boy. He takes Ashley Smith hostage in her own apartment. Fearing for her life, and wanting nothing more than to be able to see her daughter again, she finally tuns to Rick Warren’s “The Purpose Driven Life” for guidance. Ashley and Brian come to a crossroads where they discover hope and light in the midst of despair.

I received a copy of Captive for my family, and we couldn’t wait until our next Family Movie Night. I made the choice to allow my older children to watch the movie, (ages 11 and up), but I’m thankful I didn’t allow the younger ones to stay up and watch it.

My husband and myself were able to have some really deep discussion after the movie with my older children, and I was quite surprised by how much they understood and had questions about. There was a lot of drug use in the movie. Lots of violence. Some was scary violence. Brian Nichols was a very scary man. And we all discussed how making one bad choice can lead you down a path of many bad choices. Before you know it, you’re going down a path it’s impossible to come back from. (Luckily, we know that through Christ, ALL things are possible, but that still doesn’t make it easy!)

The story was intense from beginning to end. I don’t think any of my kids moved from their seats. The only thing I wish is that faith had been more of a motivator in the movie, or that God had been featured a little bit more. But, there was enough faith shown that it helped open the door for great discussion with my kids. I was able to talk with them about the choices they make when they’re young, and how they will impact them when they get older. We talked a lot about staying away from drugs and alcohol, and not even trying them when “all” their friends are. We talked about having courage and strength to say NO, and if they don’t have the courage to say no on their own, they can trust Christ to give them the courage they need.

Overall, I did enjoy the movie, and I’m thankful for the discussion it was able to open up with my children. I cannot imagine all that Ashley Smith went through, but I’m certain her testimony has led – and will lead – many people to Christ.

Want to win a copy of Captive for your family? Just leave a comment on this blog post and tell me a time when you needed faith to get through a scary situation. (If you don’t have an example, just leave your favorite Bible verse as a comment.)

Contest will end January 29th at 11:59pm ET. Please use the guidelines in the disclaimer to see if you qualify. Contest open to US & Canada.

#Sponsored: Enter the Store Brand Formula’s Unique Baby Sweepstakes #Contest

sponsoredDisclaimer: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Store Brand Baby Formula. Opinions expressed are my own and have not been influenced in any way.

Be sure to read to the end of this post… I’m giving away a $30 Visa Gift Card to one lucky reader!

As a mom of 8, I understand the desire to cut costs without cutting quality. That’s why I’ve always been a fan of store brand baby formula. When I could no longer breastfeed my children, we made the switch to store brand formula. It has saved us lots of money over the years, and my kids are still healthy, happy, and thriving. Store brand formula is great when you need a little help keeping your costs low.

When it comes to infant formula, many factors will help make the decision of what’s best for your baby, but the name on the container should not be one of them!

What most moms don’t know is that the FDA strictly regulates infant formula to keep little ones safe, so store brand infant formulas, like Walmart’s Parent’s Choice and Target’s Up and Up, are nutritionally comparable to national brands like Enfamil® and Similac® and meet FDA standards, at a much lower cost to your family.

So essentially, the brand of formula you use is not unique, but of course your baby is unique.


Direct Link for Subscribers

To shine the spotlight on the most important part of the formula equation: your baby, Store Brand Formula is launching a “Unique Baby” Photo Sweepstakes in which the winner will receive $5,000 AND a year supply of Store Brand Formula.

Every baby is unique. Show us how YOUR baby is unique. We’re looking for funny, silly, odd, crazy unique baby photos.

sawyer

My Sawyer is definitely unique. My goodness, this child is hysterical! The faces he makes, the things he gets into. He is the funnest little boy you will ever meet. Definitely one of a kind, and definitely one I want to show off to the world. 😉

sawyer

Is your baby making a really bizarre expression?

Perhaps your baby is making an angry face?

Or maybe your baby’s hair is sticking up in a funny way.

Whatever it is, we’d love to see it.

How to Enter
To enter the Store Brand Formula Unique Baby Sweepstakes, simply visit http://bit.ly/1Fd2i6y and follow the photo submission guidelines and the on-screen instructions to complete the online entry form. All entries must be submitted between September 28, 2015 – November 5, 2015.

Limit one (1) entry per person, per day for the duration of the Sweepstakes

One (1) Grand Prize winner will receive $5,000 and a one (1) year supply of the winner’s choice of Store Brand Baby Formula. Five (5) First Prize winners will receive $200 and a one (1) year supply of the winner’s c choice of Store Brand Baby Formula.

Want to win a $30 Visa Gift Card? All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and tell me one way your baby is unique. Bonus entries if you enter the Store Baby Formula Sweepstakes and if you share this post on your social media outlets. (Just leave separate comments each time you share! No limit!)

#Sponsored: Support UNICEF & Enter to Win! #Giveaway

sampleDisclaimer: This is a sponsored post on behalf of UNICEF Market. I received samples in order to facilitate my review. Opinions expressed are 100% my own.

win a unicef market gift certificate

I recently posted about UNICEF here on the blog, and how they have provided more than 6 decades of service for children and mothers. This is a cause that I can proudly stand behind, and one that I support wholeheartedly. Donating to UNICEF is an easy way to help keep this amazing cause going.

But now, there is a better, easier way to donate to UNICEF, and it’s by doing one of my very favorite things: SHOPPING! The UNICEF Market is now open, and you can quickly and easily support their talented artists as well has help UNICEF save and protect children.

The wonderful people behind the UNICEF Market contacted me and asked me to review their new website and spend $50 on their site. Happy to support this cause in any way that I can, I jumped on the chance, and then jumped on the site.

I was truly blown away!

There were so many amazing items! From earrings to furniture and totes to ponchos, they had everything I could even imagine. And every single item was so beautiful and handmade by the most incredible artists.

After browsing the site for what seemed like forever, I narrowed my choices down to two items:

(Please note: I also ordered several other items, but they are gifts for others, and went above the $50 gift card I received in order to do this review, so I will not be sharing them here.)

Knowing the items were shipping from overseas, I expected to have to wait awhile for them to arrive. Imagine my surprise when about a week after placing my order, the items were at my door!

The items were even more beautiful than pictured on the website. I wear the anchor earrings almost every single day now. They are the perfect size and weight and go with almost everything – casual or dressy.

I also use the elephant mug everyday. I’ve started drinking a special tea to help aid in weight loss, and the mug is the perfect size for what I need. Not to mention, it’s just so pretty to look at.

And while I cannot post about the other items I ordered here, I do want to tell you that I love every one of them as well. The UNICEF gift wrap is also a perfect touch so the recipients will know their item helped support saving children. It doesn’t get much better than that.

I am super impressed with the UNICEF Market, and I have already bookmarked several more items for Christmas and Anniversary presents. This may be my favorite new place to shop online, especially knowing my purchase can help make a difference in the lives of others.

The UNICEF Market has also graciously offered up another $50 Gift Certificate to one of my readers. Use the Rafflecopter gadget to enter below. Giveaway Ends April 14th at 12:00am. (Gift code will expire April 30th, so you must shop quickly.)

#Sponsored: Win a Family Vacation Package & #StayCool with Old Orchard

sampleDisclaimer: I received samples of the new Old Orchard Lemonade flavors in order to facilitate my review. Opinions expressed are 100% my own and have not been influenced. I have not been compensated in any other way for this post. Giveaway coupons provided by Old Orchard Brands.

There is a giveaway included in this post for FREE Old Orchard products. Be sure to read to the very end!!

It’s officially summertime. And in summertime, there’s one drink that I think of most: a cool, refreshing glass of Lemonade. I absolutely love lemonade, and it goes great with any meal or any summertime activity.

country style lemonadeMy Review

For this review, Old Orchard sent me samples of two of their new Naturally Sweetened lemonade flavors: Country Style Lemonade and Strawberry Lemonade. I will admit, I was skeptical. I love lemonade, but it has to be homemade lemonade. My mother in law makes the absolute best lemonade I’ve ever had. It tastes like it came from a county fair.

Imagine when my surprise when I took a big gulp of the Country Style Lemonade and it tasted just like my mother in law’s lemonade! I didn’t think it was possible! But, now I’ve got a new obsession. I can’t get enough of this lemonade, and I have it with every meal. 🙂 I also tried the Strawberry lemonade, and it was good, I’m just not a fan of any other flavors in my lemonade. I just want tart, make your mouth pucker lemons. My husband, however, is a huge fan of the Strawberry lemonade, and he’s come home from work with a bottle of it every night this week so far. (The joys of working at a grocery store, I guess. You have access to all the good stuff the entire time you’re there!)

We’ve found a new staple for our fridge, and I can guarantee we’ll be stocked full of Old Orchard Lemonade this summer!

#StayCool Summer Video Contest

I also want to make sure you’ve heard about the #StayCool Summer Video Contest Old Orchard is hosting. Old Orchard wants YOUR videos that capture the essence of “staying cool.” In return, you could win prizes that range from free Old Orchard Brands fruit juice to a chance to win one of two summer getaway vacation packages valued at $2,500 each.

Stock Up on Monster Cereals @Target #Giveaway #Sponsored #MyBlogSpark

Sample ReceivedDisclosure: The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.

monster cereals

It is my favorite time of year: Fall. And with October, comes the re-release of General Mills’ Monster Cereals. Cereals like Franken Berry, Boo Berry, and Count Chocula that make the start to each morning just a little bit sweeter.

I have a weakness for these cereals – especially when it comes to Boo Berry. In fact, for this spark, I received 3 boxes of monster cereals: Boo Berry, Frute Brute, and Yummy Mummy. The first thing I did was take a permanent marker and write, “This is MOM’S. DO NOT TOUCH” across the front of the box of Boo Berry cereal. 🙂 If I’m going to enjoy a bowl of cereal now and then, I don’t want to open the box only to discover the kids have left me less than half a bowl. I want to enjoy it!

Before this spark, I had never heard of Frute Brute, but wow! My kids loved it! Even my husband has declared it his favorite of the monster cereals.

Win a $50 Babies R Us Gift Card

As a mom of 7, I’ve been through the baby registry process a time or two. 😉 I’ve learned exactly what one really needs with a new baby, and what items are just plain fun to have. Having a registry is the best way to make sure you get the items you really want for your baby. From diapers to bottles, pacifiers to strollers, Babies “R” Us has absolutely everything you’ll need to welcome your baby.

Here are just a few of the absolutes you must have on your registry:

  • Car Seat (Whether you decide to start with an infant car seat and then move up to a convertible car seat, it doesn’t matter. You’ll just want to be sure you have the car seat before the baby arrives, otherwise your significant other will be making a run while you’re lying in a hospital bed.)
  • Crib & Mattress
  • Diapers & Wipes
  • Bottles
  • Breast Pump (A MUST if you are planning to breastfeed!)
  • A Nursing Pillow
  • Baby Bathtub
  • Swaddling Blankets
  • Baby Monitor
  • Digital Thermometer, Bulb Syringe, other First Aid Supplies

Again, that’s just enough to get you started. You’ll want to talk to the wonderful folks at Babies “R” Us to get the full list of items you may need.

The two times I needed to create a baby registry, there’s no other place I considered but Babies “R” Us.  Their knowledgeable Registry Consultants provide expert assistance, making you feel at ease and sure of your decisions of which items to put on your registry. Plus, if you register in store, you get extra perks like a welcome package. (The welcome package includes a Baby Registry Planner with a complete checklist of essential items you’ll need for baby, invitation cards to inform friends and family that the parents to be are registered at Babies “R” Us, a $5 off $25 purchase coupon, product samples, and more!) I love registering in-store, just because it’s so much fun to walk through all the aisles and drooling over all of the fantastic items one can find in their stores.)

Right now, Babies “R” Us is offering up their “Sweetest Registry Deal Ever” promotion. Expectant parents and caregivers can earn up to $200 back on any items purchased off their Babies “R” Us Registry that is created between now and November 15, 2013. Moms can also earn 10% back on purchases made off their Babies “R” Us Registry, (up to $200). (Moms will receive an e-gift card approximately 10 weeks after their due date, which will allow parents to purchase more needed products and essentials for baby.)

I want to encourage you to connect with Babies “R” Us in the following ways:

And to encourage you even more, Babies “R” Us is offering one lucky Blessed Beyond Words reader a $50 Babies “R” Us Gift Card! Simply use the Rafflecopter gadget to enter.
