What I've Been Up To....other than neglecting my blog

Trying to save the world, ok?

No, really. I may not be trying to save the world, but I am working my hiney off to save the organization God has entrusted me with.

My days start with getting Munchkin to school at 7:45 and me getting home around 7 - 7:30 pm every night.  I have the best support system in the world in my parents and I'm so happy because I can't tell the difference between Friday and Monday because every day I love what I'm doing!

This all makes me laugh out loud at how God knew exactly what he was doing when He told me I needed to move back home with my parents for a bit. I kicked and screamed and fought Him the whole way home, but being back home with this new crazy schedule has made things a lot easier!  He prompted me to move home before I even interviewed for this job. I get it God. You're AWESOME and You know BEST!

So all is well in my little corner of the world. Better than well.  I want to tell you about the craziness that is me, my sister and my mom last weekend.

Last November I booked a huge show for us all the way in San Francisco.  Of course, when you're booking a show in November for October, it feels like a world away. came. So last weekend my sister, my mom and I loaded up a Uhaul trailor, after I had a tow hitch installed on my car, and hit the road for CA. (to find out the drama of the Uhaul trailor, see my instagram).

We were so excited leaving at 5am, just us girls.  We rode down I-40 cruising, chatting, jamming to our favorite gospel tunes.  We hit Flagstaff, stopped for gas and breakfast, and kept it moving.  We were rolling.

Then we hit CA and CA gas prices! Yes. $4.89 a gallon.  We also thought, oh this is easy, we're almost there. Little did we know that we had 12 more hours to go to hit San Fran. Oh my.  I had a little bit of a breakdown at about 1am where I just got tired of it. I'm glad to report - it was all worth it!

At least Cali brings with it an In-N-Out burger on every exit.  I didn't get to truly enjoy it because I was driving - so I had to scarf down my cheeseburger - animal style!

Here's some photos from our fabulous trip. Best thing - we made it home safely! God is good.

Getting registered.
I'm in charge of warmers, my sister is in charge of sorting all the bars!

A little behind the scenes for you so you can see all we do to get set-up. 

Our Scentsy Superstore!
Winona Judd was one of the keynote speakers.
Me a very happy camper on the last day.
It's possible I was so happy the entire trip because we ate Cheesecake Factory on our first night there.
We did it! My sis and I became pro's at hooking up the trailor hitch!

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…
