2012 Cherry Festival

This weekend my sister and I packed up our families and our cars and drove down south to Alamogordo.  This is our second time working the High Rolls Cherry Festival in the beautiful mountains of New Mexico, and we love it.

We also worked the Apple Festival in High Rolls last October, and it was fun to see how we've built up a little bit of a customer base that looks forward to us being there each year.  I think this will become a regular tradition in our business!

We had many enthusiastic shoppers and even had a bunch of people show interest in joining our team.  

You can see my car was packed tight.  The little boy was asleep before we made it out of the drive-way.


Imagine having this as your office for the weekend.

One of our new customers walked into our booth and saw the bar display and said "I'm in heaven. If I wasn't in my right mind I would buy one of each!".  

Our poor mountain communities across the state are suffering from extreme forest fires and extremely dry conditions.  We loved seeing Smokie the Bear out at the Festival. Smokie says no to forest fires and Scentsy says no to house fires!   Saturday it rained and it poured during the afternoon.  It was hard to be upset about the rain because we knew our forest needed it so badly. Pray for our state and those whose homes are in jeopardy.

...and the best part of this trip is that we get to spend quality time with our Queen, our Granny.  The kids didn't want to leave this morning (I'm sure it has something to do with her amazing cooking and all the fun things to do there).

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…

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…

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…
