25 books in 25 days

My dear friend and fellow blogger Kathy, over at Wife, Mother, First Lady, issued a 25 books in 25 days reading challenge.  I thought this was such a great idea - as Munchkin and I have been working on phonics all summer long.

Our first book is one we've been reading everyday for the past 2 weeks.  Munchkin almost has it memorized, as you'll see from the audio clip below when he wants to interject his opinion into the story line.  One really neat thing is that he noticed the character had blue covers on his crutches and then a few pages later the covers were red. I hadn't even noticed until he pointed it out!

Day 1:


  1. So great to have you both on board with us. We can use the support!

  2. Oh, I love the sound cloud!! Thomas and I listened to it together!!!

  3. Hi Thomas! I love that. I thought it would be fun since we all connect and bond online but we never get the chance to hear each other's voice. Plus - Munchkin can be quite the character while we are reading. Thanks for inspiring to come on board. I think I have another friend - - who I believe is going to join us.

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…
