Momma Told Me: Fall is the perfect time to discover new things!

This year has just flown by- Just the other night I was driving home from an impromptu cookie ingredient grocery run (you all have those, right?) and thinking the holidays are here. Of course, in my parts you know Fall is here when the Summer Banana Festival banners are taken down and replaced with the annual Fall Harvest Festival and Craft Show signs. These were hard to escape, as even the radio seemed to be reminding me that, while our Southern California leaves wouldn't be rushing to change colors, the new season was here. And, with the new month, meant an exciting new opportunity to highlight Unlimited Talk, Data, And Web with Walmart Family Mobile as a new ambassador!

You have likely seen the numerous posts with Walmart Family Mobile contract-free wireless over the past year; and recall I even gifted Jay with a phone of his own back on Valentine's Day. (Boy, time flies!) Well, as things go, when one lovebird has something awesome, the other lovebird wants it to- so, when I upgraded to the new Samsung Galaxy S4 for my birthday, in August, I was again met with longing gazes and puppy eyes. I could have been offended, but the Galaxy S4 is one sexy smartphone with it's vibrant HD AMLED display screen, intuitive AirView and SmartScroll technology, Fast and Slow video mode recording, and 4G tethering. Just last month our Time Warner internet service hit the fritz for an unscheduled multi-hour blackout and I found myself running a Google Hangout Call and blog post composer off my cell phone service ON my laptop!

As a Walmart Family Ambassador I was provide a Samsung Galaxy S4 along with 5 months of  one of their lowest priced unlimited plans; and Jay and I finally had cohesive mobile technology as last! While he has been like a child in a candy shop exploring all of the phone's many functions, I have been itching to get out of the house and start enjoying fall. As he tested the S4's 14MP forward facing camera I headed online via my mobile browser to buy two adult passes to the upcoming Fall Harvest Festival and Crafts Show. Hosted on the nearby county fairgrounds, and with a brand new exhibit floor map app, we were ready to take out 4G to the streets and enjoy a day of arts, music, and amazing food.

No sooner had we checked in at the main gate, and pulled up the digital map, did the live bandstand strike up a Stray Cats hit and two suspicious looking men wander out into the pathway. They were actually quite handsome for cowboys, but I honestly prefer my men a little taller.... I must admit, however, these miniature cowboys had some amazing moves as they shuffled around on 2, erm, 4 feet to the sound of the Stray Cat Strut. Jay was quick to whip out his phone and capture some video, for Instagram (of course) and a few snapshots to share the festival fun on his Facebook wall.

The annual Fall Harvest Festival and Crafts Show is one of my favorite places to purchase my Christmas gifts for the year. In fact, least year my friends and family were quite in awe to know I had every single holiday gift wrapped and bought by the second week of October. Now my secret is out! Since Momma was a handmade artisan, as a stay at home disabled mother, I feel a great connection with those who trek to these festivals and shows in hopes of sharing their creations and passion with the community around them. Most craft show exhibitions are seasonal, and many handmade vendors rely on half a year's income at just a handful of events! Speaking of Momma- this up-cycled wind-chime reminded me of Momma and her travels along the Pacific Coast; the perfect gift for her front porch!
Disney Snowman Wood Carving at the Ventura, CA Fall Harvest Festival 2014
Some of the artisan's you'll find at the local Harvest Festival will exhibit their work with live creations in progress. It was a special treat watching woodcarver Susan Lake's whimsical snowman carving come to life as she whittled away while talking with customers. Carving for over 20 years, she has made an estimated thousand wood sculptures all individually unique and hand painted. The majority of which deal with snowmen/snowanimal themed characters or the more recent pumpkin-men style pieces. I just adored how the light hit the many surfaces and planes of even her simplest pieces. And, to the left in the picture above, you can even spot some miniature details such as peeking snowmen and tiny hearts added in for additional character and love.

As we had bought our admission to the festival online it only made sense that we continued to use our Galaxy S4 phones to make additional purchases. Not only did we have strong 4G coverage on the Walmart Family Mobile network, but many of the vendors this year were excepting digital payment via Google Wallet, Paypal, and more! I especially loved this because I could easily keep track of how much I'd spent, and even make notations about what I'd spent it on, and who the purchase was intended for. Digital applications, such as Samsung Wallet, are a must have for 2014 holiday shopping, as they allow you to lighten your load and even digitally pull up scannable bar-codes for loyalty shopping cards as well!
Fall harvest festival selfie.
Of course the afternoon wouldn't have been complete without stopping to take a quick selfie at the signed 'Complimentary harvest photo-op and selfie station'! It's truly amazing the quality of images our Samsung Galaxy S4's produce- I never would have seen a selfie as clear as this at high noon on any other previous device! And, with the expandable memory the S4 offers I can easily record countless holiday happenings, family reunions, baking tutorials, and more!

When all was said and done, we kicked of our Fall with a big bang- The Harvest Festival and Craft show was a big success. Ironically, while it was great exercise, our Walking Mate apps clocked us only halfway to our daily 10k step goal- and projected we'd only burned about 2/3 of the calories of that funnel cake! Oh well- we've got the entire Fall to step it up a notch! As you can see, Walmart Family Mobile and their range of Samsung Galaxy Phones has already enhanced our season thus far- be sure to check out the two newest Special Buy WFM devices, the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit Smartphone-$99.88 and Walmart Family Mobile LG Optimus L90 Smartphone- $149.88 (on rollback from $179.88) and stay up to date with Walmart Family Mobile on Twitter via their new handle, @FamilyMobile.

  5. I am always a little late to the game when it comes to technology, so I've never had a smartphone. I have been longing for one though. There have been so many times when it would have come in handy! I have actually looked into the Walmart Mobile Plans and the prices were pretty good. It's nice to hear you had good service as well.
