Momma Told Me: Memories make things, things don't make memories.

As you know, this year I'm actively focused on collecting memories, rather than things. Things clutter up my home, and my life, and ultimately give me a sense of panic and lack of control. In the end, memories are all we really can take away from things anyway- objects are just shrines that solicit the replay of experiences in our minds. I guess I'm lucky I live in such amazing, modern times, where memories can be captured and shared with virtually anyone, in a matter of seconds. However, it still shocks me to hear some of my family and friends aren't enjoying the same freedom to capture and share memories as I am through Walmart Family Mobile Unlimited Talk and Text 4G LTE plans.
People can be critical of our society's reliance on mobile devices- but it's a simple fact that the smartphones are connecting more people, in exceedingly dynamic ways, than any other invention before them. I've seen a father on his second tour of duty face time with his toddler back in the states, a Mother of The Bride help her daughter pick out the perfect wedding dress through photo texts and phone calls, and heard how an exhausted couple salvaged their vacation from Hell with a last minute hotel booking on their smartphone. But, let's be real, all this tech is only useful if the network is strong and the consumers can access it. Well, Walmart Family Mobile is accessible to virtually anyone with a Walmart brick and mortar nearby, and activation from online orders is just as simple as walking into the store. Check your local signal strength on their service coverage map here.
My smartphone, and Walmart Family Mobile, were there when my nephew was born last year and snapped one of the very first pictures of him and has mother. Then again, in December, it helped document and share the new family's first Christmas together for Aunts, cousins, and grandparents across the country. And, when he started crawling I received a mobile alert, a video capturing the special moments, just minutes after. While we may be in different time zones, those are some adorable pings I'm never annoyed to get!
Of course your mobile service is only as effective at capturing those memories as the device is capable. Jay and I both have Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphones from Walmart; though there are many other smartphone devices currently being featured with rollback pricing. It's hard to use 'I can't afford an upgrade' as an excuse with amazing phones like these, at such amazing prices;
  • ZTE Zinger - $29.88 starting 4/15
  • 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)
  • LG L90- $99.82 (was $179.88)
  Brand New To Walmart Family Mobile:

Memories aren't just made with family though. Memories are experiences collected through a myriad of interactions, events, an activities. This year I'll be doing a lot of traveling as a blogger and as a consumer. I've already made it to 2 SoFab U On The Road day conferences and my smartphone service has helped me from mapping the drive to the venues to connecting with my fellow attendees on mobile applications. In Phoenix I was able to capture some amazing food styling and photography tips when I chronicled a live educational seminar with Food Stylist Kim Krejca and Food Photographer Rick Gayle. When my laptop's WiFi went on the fritz I was able to keep it alive by turning my phone into a Mobile Hotspot!
Next month I'll be taking Sabrina (12) up the Pacific Coast to spend the Summer with her grandma in Oregon. We have several fun activities planned here in CA before our departure, including a trip to Universal Studios where I know the mobile app on my phone will help me schedule show times and navigate the park's map. And I know her mother will be at ease as we check in, on our road trip, with Instagram snapshots and status updates- after all, the only thing worse than a blogger with a smartphone and 4G LTE is a tween with a smartphone and Walmart Family Mobile 4G LTE service! At the end of our trip I'll be stopping in Scappoose, OR to spend some time with Momma, herself, a trip I haven't made in a year and a half. I cannot wait to reconnect with family and capture the natural beauty of Oregon!

We've certainly racked up a lot of #MobileMemories to share this year, already, and I can't wait to create and capture new ones as we head into Summer! Walmart Family Mobile has been our family's preferred smartphone service provider for a year and a half now, and their plans just keep getting better with Unlimited Talk, Text, Data, and Web 4G LTE service starting as low as $29.88 a month for the first line! I know some of you are waiting for contracts to end to make the switch; just think of all those memories you could be capturing an sharing on this great network. In fact, I'd love to hear about those Summer plans- tell me what events and activities you'll be capturing and sharing with family and friends this Summer!

What Daughter Says: Memories can be created on a moment's notice, don't be caught without service when they happen!
