What I've Been Up To

Oh me oh my!  I have been away for quite some time.  What have I been up to?  I have been working my little hiney off and loving every moment of it! I am so excited about the work God has called me to do in this season.  It is challenging, it is rewarding, it stretches me every day.  It is so important that I usually get in the office around 8:30 and don't check my phone until at least 6.  My goodness. 

I have been itching to get here to write and update you on everything going on.  So I'll start with what I did last weekend over Labor Day Weekend at the Hatch Chile Festival.   

Friday when I left the office I went straight to my storage and loaded my car with all of my Scentsy products.   I came home and made a few more samples and went to bed because I had to be up at 2am for the 3 hour drive down to Hatch, NM.


Saturday morning I jumped up, loaded all my smelly goods that I didn't want to have in my car overnight in case they melted, and hit the road!  If this doesn't show you how much I believe in this opportunity I don't know what will!



So here's a few photos from the weekend! It was hot! Like really really H-O-T.  So much fun though. The Hatch Chile Festival is a staple here in New Mexico, so you should plan to visit this little town next year!  We plan on being there!

    1. Hey Stacy! Thank you. Happy back to school for you! What kinds of scents do you like - fruity, floral, fresh, bakery, deep/woodsy? I have a bunch of great medium scents depending on what you like. I can always send you some samples.

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…

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…
