Light it Up Scentsy Convention Day 1.

We are here! What a day it has been. My trip started out great because the pastor of my son's school were on the same flight. We had a fantastic talk about the Word, our children, and life. He prayed for us before we stepped foot off the plane and I felt in my spirit this would be a great trip!

We checked in to our room here at Treasure Island and then met up with some of our team members at Fashion Mall. We just ate at the food court there and walked around. I know - I come to Vegas to eat at Panda Express. ::serious side eye::

We walked around for a little and then headed back to our hotel to get ready to head to the Convention Center. While at our hotel we heard rumblings from some of our friends that registration was taking 2 1/2 hours. This was almost unbelievable until we walked in to the Convention Center and saw the lines! This has never happened in the two years I've been with Scentsy! Usually you just walk up to the kiosk with your last name and get your registration packet. Here was lesson 1: take what comes at you and roll with it. I came to Vegas to attend Scenty convention. This is the work I love to do. Once we reached the front of the line two hours later - a woman not with me thanked me for continuing to smile. When I got to the kiosk - I thanked the Scentsy staff member for sticking to it. That's what we do in this company. Plus - in sure Heidi and Orville heard all about from their executive team.

After we made it through registration w picked up our commemorative warmers - Ill post a picture soon - registered our smart badges - get ready for massive Facebook updating - and headed to the Scentsy success store.

The kick-off started at 7 and was awesome. DJ (?) opened us up, the. The awesome neon glowing dance group from AGT came to stage and it was AWESOME. Heidi and Orville just enjoy having fun with us! They played an awesome trick on the Shining Star finalists and I already had tears in my eyes listening to the stories of these amazing 7 women. We thought we were going to find out about Brabd X - but if you've been with Scentsy - you know not much will be revealed on opening night.

We closed and all 12,000 of us headed out the center to Hotel Las Vegas for a night of dancing, fellowship, and world-class entertainment.

We didn't go to HLV. We decided to return to our hotel, get our Shining Star that is traveling here with her 8 month, settled, and grabbed a bite at Kahunaville. We're here in the room now and everyone is knocked out while I type! Day 1 of Scentsy Convention 2012 is in the books. More to come tomorrow!

I'm sooo grateful for all of our team members who came with us. I am so excited about how this will light all of our fires!

I'll edit and move the photos around when I get home. I'm posting from my phone right now and can't do that!

Also - my body is now spoiled with eating semi-clean. I look 8 months pregnant in most the photos because I've been bloated all day! TMI? Ok. My bad.

Have a great night from the City that never sleeps.

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…
