Unleash your imagination with the freedom to create unique characters you’ve only dreamed of until now.  You can create on-the-go using the Skylanders Creator App and even print out your own 3-D Skylanders toy!  My son made his own character last week and is eagerly awaiting it’s arrival.  I went through the entire creation process with my son and I was blown away at the level of customization you have available.  You can change every detail from head to eyes to size and even the characters voice and what their catch phrase is when placed on the portal.  (The character above on the far right in red and yellow is the finished product of my son’s creation.  I took some screenshots through the creation process…it was so much fun!  I can’t wait to see what it looks like printed out in 3D!)

If you’re a collector of the Skylanders games and characters like we are, you’re in luck because all of the 300+ characters from the previous Skylanders games will work with the Imaginators as well, how cool is that?  This epic adventure features Crash Bandicoot and Dr. Neo Cortex for an all new level of fun and challenge.

Imagination Come To Life With The Skylanders Creator App #Review #Skylanders


If you haven’t tried out the Skylanders Creator App…YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE MISSING!  I had such a blast helping my son create his own custom character to play with his Skylanders Imaginators game!!   With the Skylanders Creator app, creation will be brought directly to your fingertips and let you create Skylanders on the go!  (I’ve found that this is a great way to keep the kids entertained in the car.  We live in a rural place and the closest store is a 30 minute drive one-way.  Each of the kids’ tablets have the Skylanders Creator App and they love it!)


You can create an all new character directly from the app or even transfer an imaginator that you’ve built in your Skylanders Imaginators game!  There are a few different custom options available but my son was really eager to be able to build his very own character.  I was really surprised by the numerous ways to customize your character and I took screenshots through the process to show you all just how unique and different you can make your character.


The first few steps are the basic customization of the character.  You can choose each feature separately to create a character that will be absolutely unique to you.  Design your character from the eyes to the ears, chest, body and even tail if you want one.  My son had a hard time choosing, so be prepared for a lengthy process!


After you choose the basics of your character you can choose unique weapons, shoulder guards, leg guards, and even make your character as large or as small as you want them to be.


When I told you that you can customize everything, I meant EVERYTHING!  You can pick your own custom colors, themes, and give the character a unique name.  You can pick the phrase you want them to say when placed on the portal as well as even change the voice they say it with.  My son absolutely loved the phrase he settled on, “Fueled by, pizza!”, haha!

The waiting period for the character to arrive is probably the hardest part about the whole process.  It can take 4-6 weeks to receive your customized character so be sure to plan around birthdays or holidays if you’re giving one as a gift.  As soon as our character arrives I will update with pictures of our 3D figure!

Week 31 On Nutrisystem…Inspiring Those Around You #NSNation #Ad


Week 31 on Nutrisystem already?  Time sure does fly when you’re having fun!  This past week I lost 1 lb bringing my total so far to 45.2 lbs lost!  That’s pretty incredible to me…this plan just keeps amazing me day after day.  I guess it must be amazing friends to, I experienced a week full of friends and family asking me millions of questions!


I must be getting to that stage in my weight loss where others are finding the results impressive.  This week family and friends kept me super busy with waves of questions about Nutrisystem and I was SO happy to answer them all.  I love breaking down how simple the plan is to follow, no matter how busy you are.  Even a picky eater like myself can find enough foods to keep me happy and not bored, so I don’t feel deprived at all.  I love explaining the TONS of ways to customize this plan and make it your own, you don’t have to keep it bland and boring…that will get old fast and lead you off track.  I never thought I would be in the position that I am now, as I was told so often this week, a huge inspiration to those close to me that are struggling with weight loss as well.  So far 2 close friends have started Nutrisystem and are loving the results they’re seeing themselves, and I love seeing that they’re going to be happier, healthier, and live longer lives for the ones who love them.

Week 22 On Nutrisystem…Accept The Challenges Presented And Keep Going! #NSNation #Ad


Week 22 on Nutrisystem is here and MAN am I ready to start the new week feeling much better than last week.  Last week I was faced with a really bad case of bronchitis and was down for the count for a few days.  Being so sick really took a toll on me and sadly did affect my loss for the week.  I lost a mere 0.4 lbs this week to bring me to a grand total of 32 lbs!  Still nothing to sneeze at, but I would’ve obviously liked to see the loss this week greater than it was.

There were a couple factors to affect me last week, but this week is a new week and I’m ready to leave last week’s poor loss in the dust.  Eating right is a HUGE part of the Nutrisystem plan.  There is balance and harmony and you need to eat EVERYTHING alotted for the day to have the plan work.  During my bout with bronchitis there were 3 days were I was feeling so poor that I couldn’t really eat much.  Those days I probably consumed a total of 300-400 calories each day, mostly bananas, because that’s all I could stomach when I could manage to get food in.  I’m pretty positive so many days of such restricted calories set my body into starvation mode defeating pretty much my whole week :/ .  As if that weren’t enough to deal with, my ‘lady week’ is on the horizon and that does also affect the numbers on the scale as well (sorry guys!), but it is true.  I was still able to see a decent loss on the tape measure and that’s a loss I’ll be happy to take.


^^These guys right here are why I’m so eager to get back to my old self this week.  Getting healthier for them and being able to take them out and have fun adventures is worth it 🙂 .  I hope you all continue on this journey with me 🙂 .
