This is My Life


Munchkin and I are just returning from one of my sorority sister's homes. I love these moments when we get to spend some time together - because they're pretty few. Munchkin loves the chance to hang out with his friend and I love the chance to hang out with my friend.

Driving home, it made me think about some things that have been on my heart lately. God really has me in an interesting place right now. I don't really desire to go out with my single friends because I'm not necessarily interested in the things singles are interested in, but I don't fit in with my married friends because I can't necessarily go on "date night" with them. Munchkin and me are truly in a season where he is my main focus.

People often comment about how close him and I are. How could we not be? Everything I do right now points back to him. The work I do, the desires of my heart, all point back to making sure he lives a full life and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I'm so grateful for the friends God has placed in my life and for the fact that they serve a very specific purpose in my life in this season.

I wonder how other single parents feel about this.

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…
