Friday Files

What an exhausting week this has been. I am not complaining - but it just has been.  Monday I spent all day in a clients office and it was draining. I returned on Tuesday and felt if I spent another moment inside I would scream. Sometimes all you can do is pray to be the light.  So I stole away for a few moments to enjoy lunch on the balcony. I hope you enjoy the view as much as I did.

I was also packing up my house this weekend in preparation for our move.  I had clothes everywhere. Some had already been moved, some packed, some still hanging in my closet.  I was forced to just put things together - which usually for me creates the best outfits.

You know I can't go a week without sharing good food with friends. That would be like killing a foodie like me.  We were going to try a new restaurant in Nob Hill but decided we wanted Sushi on our way there.

I am so glad to be home now. My little one is taking a nap and I'm sitting here enjoying a glass of Moscato and watching the news of this mass shooting in Aurora, CO.  All day I've been shining a big bucket of light and love on the town and people there. I don't know what the world is coming to, but I am convinced now is a good time to pray.

I hope you all had a great week and have an even better weekend.

What are your Friday Files?  How was your week? Are you excited the weekend is here?

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…
