This Week in Photos

Doing this helps me find "joy in the journey" as my dear friend Heather Howard Earl would say.

On Saturday, my friend and line sister and I were having a usual text conversation like we do everyday - and the journey of our natural hair came up. I loved this and it's so true!



So out of that came me embracing a little self love. While I love instagram - one of my biggest complaints is that too many people take too many self portraits and it annoys me - but one is not too bad.


That night I was headed to the Alpha Kappa Alpha Salute to Youth Scholarship Award Gala held by the women of Iota Xi Omega. It was a super fun time.

I was honored to do the presentation of the debutantes and gent. It was truly an honor because I remember what a big deal that moment was for me.




Saturday morning I woke up and was dragging about having to get dolled up that night. I just wanted to relax. Then I remember that 10 years ago, I stood in their shoes and it meant so much to me. My high school friends were there. My mom and I had shopped for my dress and spent mucho dinero on getting the lace appliques taken off the body and added to the bottom to be long enough. After a hair emergency and my sister hooking me up, I was ready for this big night.

Saturday morning was also my Scentsy Delivery Day. Love getting the chance to connect with my customers and friends.



I also did a little shopping with Munchkin. He was being silly acting like a mannequin:


New Lipstick: Benefit - I think I Love You
My testimony right now:


Yesterday was gorgeous outside.

....so I ate lunch out there and look at the line already.


Scentsy VIP Scent of the Month Club mailing day -


I LOVE this. I have a strange way of getting to my destiny. At the end of it all you don't have to understand me - as long as my work withstands.


...and just how timely was this. Just yesterday I started asking that question "why" again. Why did this happen? Why did you do this? OH please Niecy - MOVE ON, LET GO and GET OVER IT!

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…

Colin Kaepernick is bae

I really don't need to say anymore.  
I've been saying people with a platform need to take a stand. I didn't want any Black athletes to travel to Rio for the olympics to represent the USA. I realize that is a big thing to ask. That is the dichotomy of being Black in America.  Black athletes representing a country and winning gold medals in the name of a country who doesn't fully see us. 
So Kaepernick gets all my love for taking a stand by taking his seat.  Personal protests have always been the catalyst for greater awareness and action. 
Let me tell you a quick story. This summer at our Scentsy convention, Orville gave a moving and authentic speech that touched on the current times. I could see how he genuinely felt about what he was saying. There was a moment where this quote by a Scentsy consultant's husband was placed on the screen. I realized when he said "he's Black", everyone remained seated, but when he said "and he's a cop" eve…
