Life is TOO Short to Worry About the Little Things

My heart really can not comprehend all of the changes, but time isn’t going to wait for it to catch up.  There are many things that I worry about in the future and I am thankful that affording a cell phone and data-something I use every day as a blogger-will be more attainable.


Life is TOO short to worry about the little things. *Like data.

When life throws you curve balls, as it tends to do, you can either jump out of the way or swing for the fences.  I for one am smacking those balls right back to where they came from.  Good riddance.

Now, I choose joy.

I choose happiness.

I share my happiness with my two munchkins through interpretive dance.  That’s right.  Interpretive dance.


Em Breaking IT Down

When our song comes on(there are MANY that we claim to be “ours”) we shake it and BREAK IT DOWN.  To many this looks like one of us was hit by lightening and to other’s like we’ve lost our ever-loving minds.  To this day I do not regret stopping and DANCING with my two kids whenever our jam comes on.

I make it my mission for “our” songs to make an appearance whenever we needed an extra hop in our step. One song and five minutes later we are all hysterically laughing and fall into a giant group hug.  THIS is what I want them to remember.

Not the pain and the sadness.

I want them to remember what it feels like to just truly love a moment and to not be worried about what anyone else is thinking.  Frankly we ALL know that it doesn’t matter what other’s think, but they need someone to show them what that looks like.


Streaming Music

Now that the future looks tight where finances are concerned I know that the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan will save me a lot of money.  I keep up my social media marketing throughout the day as I care for my two munchkins.  I stream music, upload videos, send photos, and keep track of all of my social media accounts during the daylight hours.  This typically happens while we are out and on the go which can be bothersome as I tend to eat up a BUNCH of data.  Thankfully with the new Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan I no longer have to worry about keeping up with work while on the run. The Walmart Family Mobile PLUS = Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE plus a free movie on VUDU every month, per line for $49.88.

Walmart Family Mobile PLUS

Last week at Walmart as I grabbed some groceries with the kids I picked up a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Phone- currently on sale for $99.00 (Rollback from $149.00) My sisters and mother LOVE their Samsung Galaxy Phones and now I see why.  Fabulously clear photos and crystal clear 4G LTE service with WFM.


Future Blogger

Emma Marie working on being a Blogger, “Just like mommy,” she says as she continuously chops off her brother’s head in the photos.  Well, I DO see a lot of fashion bloggers doing that on purpose-so perhaps she is on to something.


BEST Break-dancer in the Family

Now when we are taking a trip to San Diego to visit family I can stream a movie thanks to VUDU on my tablet.  Talk about a way to help keep the kid’s entertained while I am staying safe and driving through the desert.  A movie a month is a fabulous perk to this plan for our family!  I already promised them a night of camping(real tent and sleeping bags-but back in real beds before it gets too late) and would love to be able to stream a video and make it a Data & a Movie Night tent side!

Smores? Good.

Tent? Good.

Sleeping Bags? Good.

Movie & Popcorn? Epic.


Best Friends

Camping during the summer with my family is definitely one of my favorite childhood memories and I can not wait to show how special it is to be out with nature.  Just need for them to be a bit older before we hit the real campground.  So backyard camping it is!


Our Little Family

The New Year will bring with it new challenges.  The only thing that matters right now are my two little munchkins.  May I make them proud.

What could you do with some added savings in the New Year? 

Where would you stream your free movie? Camping? Road trip?

I can’t wait to escape the desert when the temperatures heat up here in the desert and hit California! Sand in the toes and waves to chase.
