We've been loving our time in San Diego with Family and Friends!
We've enjoyed plenty of time talking and playing games, but this afternoon we decided to spend our afternoon snuggled up on the couches watching a great family movie with a wonderful message.
We watched the new release movie at WalMart, War Room, and enjoyed the family time spent together. 
We also very much enjoyed the simple and yummy treats that only took about 5 minutes to prepare!

Hunter has a very close knit family. 
We have a group text constantly going to tell each other everything new that is happening in our lives so we all are up to date.
We enjoy sharing pictures and stories but we also understand that the power of prayer is real and ask each other to pray when we need it.
I love that we are always there for each other in those moments and I also love that we all celebrate with one another when our prayers have been answered.

War Room is all about the power of prayer and how it can change our lives if we let it.
It had such a wonderful message and has really helped me understand that I need to be more prayerful in my everyday life.
The hustle and bustle of life can easily get hectic and doesn't leave much room for alone time.
I loved that this movie showed that if we make time, there will be time to spend communicating and pleading with our Father in Heaven.
We need to have a personal relationship with Him.
One thing that I have decided on after watching this movie is that I need to spend more time alone to have personal scripture study and to talk to my Heavenly Father.
As a young wife and mother that also does all the cooking, cleaning, shopping, and works from home... this can sound like just another task to add to my to-do list.
That is where I want to change. 
My New Year's Resolution for the year of 2016 is to strengthen my relationship with Heavenly Father through daily prayer and scripture study.
I'm so happy that we watched this movie, it really did remind me how important and empowering prayer is.

While watching the movie we enjoyed a super yummy and simple treat.
A salty and sweet combo made with Orville Redenbacher popcorn, Peanut M&M’S® chocolate candies, pretzels, and a chocolate drizzle.
We also enjoyed sipping on Coca-Cola's Sprite throughout the movie.
All of these products were easily found at my local Wal-Mart.

  2. Diabetes Destroyer

    Every prospective parent worries about the health of their unborn child, and that is perfectly normal. In today's world we understand more about genes and it has increased the worry about what can I pass on to my child. Anyone who has type 2 diabetes knows that it is a serious condition and the complications of type 2 diabetes can be dramatic.


  3. Hmmmm.Tasty looking Pop Corns. Pop corn doubles the enjoyment of movies in cinema. Specially when you are watching a supernatural action like Superman. This Character looks awesome on his costume. You can get it at:
