Sometime in December 2014, I took JP to see a movie at the theater on a mommy-son date. What did we see? Big Hero 6 of course, when it was first released. When you’re 5, little things get you really excited – like the prospect of going to the theater and mom letting you eat popcorn and candy.

So here we are, a few months later and I’ve discovered that since Feb. 24th, Walmart is offering the exclusive combo gift pack for Big Hero 6! I get so excited when I see these simply because not only do you get the CD – you also get something way more valuable… The digital copy! Simply scan your receipt using the savings catcher in the Walmart app and view the movie wherever you like!! The digital copy is my favorite because you can’t take your DVD or blue ray when you’re on the go, but you can certainly take your phones and tablets!

So the last time I visited Walmart, I noticed it front and center in the electronics department. I knew it would be perfect for the icy weekend we had ahead of us, so I decided to bring one home since he loved seeing it in the theater. The combo pack is just a few dollar more, but I think it’s worth the value when you have anytime access with the digital copies. Supplies are limited – so make sure you one before it’s sold out!

While JP loves getting time on the iPad, there’s something to be said for watching “on the big TV” as he calls it. He likes to climb up into his daddy’s recliner, eat popcorn & play man of the house when we watch movies in the afternoon until he comes home. After we saw Big Hero 6 in the theater, the Disney store was conveniently next door and JP just had to have a stuffed doll from the movie – he still walks around with him all the time!

While candy and popcorn were a given in this equation, I decided to make something a little off-the-wall in hopes of him trying something different. Since I make California rolls from time to time, I thought it would be fun to make a Japanese-ish snack to have while we watch the movie.

First I started with making some sushi rice. Sushi rice tastes like plain old white rice, only its much stickier. it takes about 20 minutes, and you must let it cool a little before handling it. While I had the rice cooking, I took a couple of my favorite hot dogs and boiled them for a few minutes until hot & cooked though. I got my seaweed wraps out, cheddar cheese sticks, a spoon for the rice and a sharp knife for cutting. I sliced both the hot dogs and the cheese so it would be too overloaded in the roll.

With a sharp knife, cut into small pieces and serve! Which brings me to my next dilemma…

Since there was really no Big Hero 6 dinnerware whatsoever, I decided it would be fun to make my own to serve my snack on. I purchased a package of 4 rectangular dinner plates along with a Big Hero sticker book I got from Walmart.com because there was very little Big Hero merchandise in store.

I picked out a sticker that I thought would work best and stuck it to the plate. Next to Baymax, I put his Japanese written name and secured it with clear nail polish topcoat. I would not recommend putting this in the dishwasher or soaking it in the sink… its just for fun purposes! To clean it, I used a damp sponge and light rinsing in the sink. It made for a fun craft that’s easy for kids of all ages.

I must say that we loved our kooky little snack and it was surprisingly tasty. Get creative! You can use just about anything in a sushi roll, as long at its a long. skinny strip!

My favorite thing about checking the mail at this time of year is waiting for that nice tax check to arrive. Depending on the sum, what do you plan to do with it? Our family is looking to invest in another unlimited talk text and data/web phone with service from Walmart Family Mobile, for my husband this time. A few months back, I decided to make a switch from our old carrier to try out Walmart’s service. Since there’s no contract, there was no commitment and I didn’t feel like I was being cornered into something I couldn’t easily back out of if I didn’t like it. After a few months, I was pleasantly surprised at how happy I was with the switch. I basically cut my mobile bill in half, and still can do everything with my phone as I could before.

There’s alot of different phone types to choose from depending on your budget, and they begin as low as $19.84 for the ZTE Zinger – so you really can’t go wrong. I had a really good experience with the LG90, and the best part is that it’s on rollback from $179.88 to $99.82! There’s many more on rollback, it’s just a matter of comparing them to suit your individual needs.

  • ZTE Zinger – $19.84 (was $39.88)
  • Nokia Lumia 530 – $49.88 (was $69.88)
  • Samsung Galaxy Exhibit – $49.84 (was $99.88)
  • Nokia 635 – $79.84 (was $129.88)
  • LG L90 – $99.82 (was $179.88)
  • Galaxy Avant – $149.00 (was $199.99)
  • ZTE ZMAX – $179.00 (was $199.88)
  • Alcatel Fierce 2 – $119.00 (was $129.99)
  • Alcatel Evolve 2- $39.83 (was $59.88)

I thought the LG90 was so sleek when I gifted one to my mom and dad back in December!

If you have been reconsidering your mobile service, be sure to check out Walmart Family Mobile. Why should you pay more for the same service elsewhere?

Gearing up with Graco® just in time for baby to arrive

Finally… I’m in the homestretch of this pregnancy and it will soon be over – I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for this to be done! While I’m going to miss the squirms and kicks I feel on a constant basis, there’s so much more that I’m not going to miss – like the swollen feet, exhaustion and the constant need to pee just to name a few. Most of all, I can’t wait to meet my brand new baby girl and kiss those chubby cheeks! Its definitely going to make all the discomfort of pregnancy worthwhile.

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending a Graco® live event party and I learned all about the Graco® Pack ‘n Play® Playard Portable Napper & Changer™. I’m totally sold on it because the baby’s nursery is coming along slowly and I’m still waiting on certain items to arrive. My back-up plan is to use the pack ‘n’ play as a temporary place for her to sleep until I finish the nursery, should she come earlier than expected. Not only will it help ease my anxiety about getting it all done, it will make a great place to put her down for naps & diaper changes during the day in the living room.  It will be nice to not have to walk far off to take care of her in the early weeks – especially since I’ll be recovering from a c-section.

When she’s not gonna be napping in her Graco® Pack ‘n Play®, there’s also the The Graco® Simple Sway™ Swing to enjoy.My favorite part? It plugs in the wall, so there’s no batteries!! I once had a battery operated swing, and while I loved it at the time, it chewed through batteries faster than I could buy them. In the end, it cost alot of money just to keep it going that I didn’t end up using it that much.

Also, as she grows up and starts eating baby food, I’ve got the  Graco® Swivi Seat™ to look forward to as well! What I love most about the Graco® Swivi Seat™ is that it attaches to your dining chair – similar to a car seat. If there’s one item I remember hating when JP was a baby was a giant traditional style high chair in the middle of the kitchen – I can’t remember how many times I stubbed my toe from it being in the way. Also, as she grows up, it turns into a booster seat – so no need to purchase anything else!

I’m so thrilled that Graco® provided me with these 3 awesome items just in time for my baby to arrive… They’re going to be put to good use!
