You Can Feed America One Meal At A Time

You Can Feed America One Meal At A Time

As a participant in this campaign with Walmart, I have received compensation for my time and efforts in creating this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I was asked to talk about a subject that is near and dear to my heart: hunger.  Did you know that, in America, 1 in 6 people struggles with hunger?  It just doesn’t seem right that in a country where obesity is at epidemic levels, there are people who go to bed hungry and wake up hungry.  Well, Walmart is trying to help feed hungry Americans.  Through Feeding America, Walmart has committed to 70,000,000 meals to hungry Americans.  All you have to do is buy one of the participating products and, VOILA, you just donated a meal to a hungry American!  You can find the full list of participating items over here!

 You can also help by participating in #WeSparkChange!

Easy, thoughtful, and fun. It’s time to get social! Round up your 6 friends, family or co-workers and share your smiles with us.

  • Upload your photo to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter
  • Use the hashtag #WeSparkChange
  • Make your photo “Public”

Walmart will donate $10, up to $1,500,000, to Feeding America for every post shared. Don’t forget to spread the word to your friends in the next 48 hours.

How The Program Works:

1. Customer buys Hunger participating item (ex. Cheerios) at Walmart between April 6 & May 3.

2. Cheerios (for example) scan at the register and is logged as 1 item purchased during the event helps secure a meal* on behalf of a local Feeding America food bank donated by the supplier (General Mills) NOT WALMART.

3. On May 4, Walmart will pull a sales report of total unit sales by store in all 50 states and provide to 6 suppliers and Feeding America.

4. General Mills will write a check directly to Feeding America’s National Office for the dollar amount associated based on the Sales report (General Mills sells 1MM boxes of Cheerios $0.10 per a box => $100K to Feeding America)

5. Feeding America takes $100K from General Mills and divvys the donation among 200 Feeding America Food Banks based on number of Cheerios sold by store (based on zip code). Each store is tied to a Food Bank.

6. Food Banks then use funds to “secure meals” (ie.Acquire food, pay for electricity, gas, transportation, operating costs)

You can also donate at Register:

From April 6 to May 3, you can give monetary donations of $1, $2, or $5 to your local Feeding America Food Bank at the register of any participating Walmart.

Donate next time you visit


DISCLAIMER: Walmart is not responsible for donating the meals, the supplier partners listed above are responsible for that.

I Never Want To Stop Fighting, I Just Want The Attacks To Stop

I Never Want To Stop Fighting, I Just Want The Attacks To Stop

my babies

She has a new diagnosis which means a new specialist.  I’m referring to her as “she” because she’s now 16 and old enough to care that I’m talking about her….in a public place.  Those of you who know me, know who I’m talking about.   She’s been fighting since she was born.  First a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, then epilepsy, then cerebral palsy was retracted, then another type of epilepsy, then Asperger’s, then Factor VII bleeding disorder, then Sensory Processing Disorder; now a new diagnosis.  None of her diagnoses are “that bad” singularly, but compiled together, they all paint a very bleak picture for an amazingly brilliant little girl.

I’m not sharing the new diagnosis simply because it’s not necessary and all of these other diagnoses have already been shared several times.  The new diagnosis is incurable, mostly un-treatable, and will, likely, not cause death or disfigure her; at least not yet.  I am sharing this partly because I’m a blogger and that’s what I do; I write.  I’m also sharing it because I always get messages and emails from other mothers who needed to hear this.  It is unbelievably hard to be the mother of a special needs child….any special needs child.  It is especially tough when your child has multiple diagnoses and sees many specialist; none of whom communicate with each other.

This will just be rambling to many of you, but to those of you who ‘get it’ you get it :D  It is lonely being the mother of a special needs child.  It is lonely because you are always. on. guard.  You are hyper-aware of everything everyone says or does around your child.  You walk a line between telling people why your child acts the way they do and being angry that people can’t just be nice no matter what!  Why do they need an explanation?  Just don’t be a jerk!  Yes, that’s what I want to say most of the time (almost every day).

Not only did we get bad news from the doctor this week, but the speech therapist says that all of the speech therapy she had when she was younger to help with her stuttering; likely caused the speech problems she’s having now…great!  As the title suggests, I never want to quit fighting for her; I just want the attacks to stop.  I don’t want her to have another diagnosis.  I don’t want her to have an even harder life.  I don’t want her to be sad or lonely.  I just want it to stop.

I am the kind of person who gets very angry and withdrawn when something is going on with any of my children.  I say it’s very lonely over here being the mother of a special needs child, but the truth is that, if you offered to help, I wouldn’t let you.  I have an amazing husband, 3 awesome kids, a beautiful home and feel guilty, most days, for feeling sad for her or even myself.  The truth is, I don’t know what to do most days.  The truth is that, even with daily prayer and Bible study, I still feel lost.  I have come to the conclusion that it’s okay to feel lost, as long as you keep on pushing.  Keep on going.  Never stop fighting.  Fight, that’s what every single day is for the mother of a special needs child….A. FIGHT. That I’m determined to win.

About Disneyland’s Tomorrowland:

Here in Tomorrowland, the future is today! So, ready your rockets, boys and girls, as you blast into the twin orbits of innovation and exploration. But Tomorrowland is more than a fascinating collection of gizmos — it’s a spaceport where your imagination lands each day to glimpse otherworldly wonders, embark on fantastic voyages, and witness the pioneering of the human spirit.

tomorrowland disneyland1

From Disneyland:

Tomorrowland embodies the Space Age and the optimistic advancement of humanity, promising the day when we will touch the stars. Marvel at the bold rings and sweeping spires. The “Googie” architecture — a space age look that was enormously popular during the 1950s — first appeared in Tomorrowland in 1959.

Shiny orbs, kinetic sculptures, metallic finishes and mechanical touches also raise your sights skyward, lending a feeling of otherworldliness to the attraction architecture. Further, the plants in Tomorrowland are meant to be edible! The visionary landscaping doubles as a potential farm, projecting an ecologically astute future, where humanity makes the most of its resources.

It’s a great big beautiful tomorrow — here, in Tomorrowland!

DisneyNature Monkey Kingdom Opens Everywhere This Friday

DisneyNature Monkey Kingdom Opens Everywhere This Friday

monkey kingdom opens1

Well, the day is finally here! Disney’s Monkey Kingdom is opening in theaters everywhere this week. My kids are all so excited for this film, but I think Hannah is the most excited :D Every time I show them the trailer for the film she asks me for a pet monkey LOL I’m pretty sure we would be living in a zoo right now if it was up to her though. This is going to be a perfect way to spend Friday night this week.  We have watched most of the DisneyNature films and they are always amazing and unique.  Plus, we can follow along in our homeschool work and learn even more about the habitat of these amazing animals.

monkey kingdom opens

From Disney:

Life is an adventure for Maya, the clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey in “Monkey Kingdom,” Disneynature’s new feature film set among ancient ruins in the storied jungles of South Asia. Maya’s world is forever changed when she welcomes her son, Kip, into her complicated extended family. Like all families, Maya’s has more than its share of colorful personalities—and she’s determined to give her son a leg up in the world. When their longtime home at Castle Rock is taken over by powerful neighboring monkeys, Maya’s whole family retreats, and she uses her street smarts and ingenuity to uncover untapped resources amidst strange new creatures and unsettling surroundings. Ultimately, they will all have to work together to reclaim Castle Rock, where Maya can hopefully realize her dreams for her son’s future.

Featuring a rich variety of characters, including a mischievous mongoose, simple-minded langur monkeys, predatory leopards and monitor lizards, “Monkey Kingdom” is narrated by Tina Fey (“30 Rock”), directed by Mark Linfield (“Chimpanzee,” “Earth”) and co-directed by Alastair Fothergill (“Chimpanzee,” “Bears”). With music from award-winning composer Harry Gregson-Williams (“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” “Shrek” movies), Disneynature’s eighth True Life Adventure—the follow-up to 2014’s “Bears”—swings into theaters April 17, 2015.

Set in the storied jungles of South Asia, “Monkey Kingdom” showcases the adventures of new mom Maya, a clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey who’s determined to give her son a leg up in the world.

For every ticket sold opening week (April 17-23, 2015), Disneynature will make a donation to Conservation International to help protect monkeys and other endangered species in their natural habitats.

AT&T Go Phone Is No Ordinary Prepaid

AT&T Go Phone Is No Ordinary Prepaid

DISCLOSURE: This post is sponsored. All products mentioned and reviewed on this page are compliments of AT&T. All opinions of the products are my own.

GoPhone logo

I was so excited when I was asked to try out the new AT&T GoPhone rate plan!  Can I tell you how sick I am of being in a contract with the cell phone company?!  I have never tried a prepaid rate plan before now and WOW!  Well, I have to make a correction; I’m pretty sure I did use prepaid wireless about 15 years ago when cell phones were still new.  The new AT&T GoPhone is not your ordinary prepaid.  This was awesome.  I didn’t know you could get unlimited talk and text on a prepaid plan.  Gone are the days of counting minutes and text messages.  With AT&T’s new GoPhone plans you get unlimited talk and text and data usage with 1.5GB of data at high speed.

*Data usage exceeding the high-speed allowance will result in reduced data speed of up to 128 Kbps for the rest of your 30-day term. Actual speeds vary by device and location.

When your children are growing and you’re struggling with how to handle giving them the freedom of a cell phone, it can be difficult to decide.  The GoPhone is perfect for our 16 year old daughter.  What’s the best part?  There are no hidden fees!  I won’t be getting a surprise bill because she went over her texting, minutes, or data.  She gets what she gets and that’s it!  $45 a month is also perfect for us.  It fits our budget and makes her happy.  If any of you have teenagers, you know, making them happy is no easy feat LOL  You can view the GoPhone rate plans to see which one fits your family best.  I can remember “back in the day” when prepaid plans were significantly more expensive than contract plans; that is simply not the case anymore.  This plan is actually a little cheaper than our contract plan, which made all of us very happy!

gophone Collage

Five reasons to make the switch to AT&T GoPhone:

1. Staying In Touch Just Got Easier

  • Who doesn’t want to stay in touch with friends and family and post their latest selfie to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram? AT&T has got you covered with new rate plan options from GoPhone.
  • Introducing the new $60 a month smartphone rate plan, a great option if you have family across the border, offers unlimited calling from the U.S. to Mexico, plus nationwide unlimited talk, text and data usage with 4GB of data at high-speed*.
  • The new $45 a month smartphone rate plan, including nationwide unlimited talk, text and data usage with 1.5GB of data at high-speed*.
  • To view all rate plans available, please visit: http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/plans/prepaidplans.html

2. They’ll Have No Excuse Not To Call You Back

  • AT&T offers GoPhone customers service on the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE network, which reaches more than 300 million people, making it easy for your family to stay connected.
  • To find out if AT&T 4G LTE is available in your community, please visit: http://www.att.com/maps/wireless-coverage.html#fbid=Oox4jhMoCbP

3. Because Their World is Constantly Changing

  • With no annual contract, GoPhone customers have the flexibility to choose a plan that fits their needs and budget, and make changes as necessary.
  • GoPhone is the right choice for customers who don’t want to sign a wireless phone contract.
  • GoPhone can provide you with a sense of comfort as it creates parameters around your family’s wireless plans, while also instilling a new sense of responsibility for a new phone owner.

4. We Put the “Smart” in Smartphone

  • GoPhone devices include the latest 4G & 4G LTE Android, and Windows smartphones at affordable prices.
  • The benefit to utilizing AT&T GoPhone service on a smartphone is the ability to take advantage of the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE Network. Now you can also use your smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot to share the data and connect other devices.

5. We Say “Yes” to Hand-Me-Downs

  • GoPhone is compatible with most phones, including iPhones, which allows you to utilize a phone you already own – even if the service was with another provider. Signing up with GoPhone simply requires you to insert a GoPhone-activated SIM card in your current phone, making it very easy to switch.
  • To determine if a device is compatible with AT&T GoPhone, please visit: http://www.att.com/devicehowto/.

Oh yes!  We have a new Featurette from Disney’s Tomorrowland!  I feel like a kid waiting on the toy store to open when I’m waiting for new clips from Tomorrowland :D  This movie, mark my words, is going to be an instant classic.  Between George Clooney, Hugh Laurie and Disneyland, this movie is destined to be great! Just in case I haven’t mentioned it yet; I will be heading to Los Angeles next month to screen Tomorrowland and interview the talent from the movie. I am so stinkin’ excited! This is going to be EPIC!  Okay, I think I’ve officially gone over my allowance for exclamation point usage in this post LOL Be sure to check out the video below.

If you read this blog much, you know how much I love the low prices at Save A Lot.  I’ve been shopping at Save A Lot for many years and just found out that they are now carrying Suave, Dove, and Caress products!  Why is this important to me?  Well, I love any reason not to go to those “big box stores”.  Any time my favorite local grocery store starts carrying national brands, it becomes much easier for me to bypass the larger stores and pick up everything I need at Save A Lot.  This makes me very happy :D  I am always excited to get another project from #SaveALotInsiders!

save a lot Collage3

As usual, our local Save A Lot, in Opelousas, was very clean and welcoming.  I know you have to know that this is a rare occurrence these days for most stores.  I have my favorite stores where I love to shop and cleanliness and customer service are at the top of my list of reasons why I choose these stores.  It was super easy for me to find the new Suave products at the store since they were all right where they should be!  I went right over, picked them up, and tossed them in my basket.  Easy peasy, and now it was time to get my grocery shopping done.

Most of  you know that my husband and I have 3 children.  Our oldest and youngest are girls and both have very long hair.  We could really buy detangling spray by the gallon if we could find it LOL  Our youngest daughter has very curly hair that she is determined to brush herself.  Suave Kids Detangler helps her do just that.  All 3 of our children just love the Suave Kids 2 in 1 shampoo + conditioner because it smells great!  I love it because it leaves their hair soft and shiny without breaking the bank (prices may vary on location)!

save a lot Collage1

I am a hairspray fanatic!  My hair is curly enough to be curly when I want it to be but not so curly that I cannot easily straighten it.  One tip I learned, many years ago, about getting your hair fuller and getting it to hold it’s style; is to spray a little bit of hairspray on it before you blow it dry.  This helps your hair hold it’s shape and it is great for keeping hair pins in place :D
