London Calling - Day 1

It is definitely time I start catching you up on the magical adventure I am currently on! Friday afternoon I flew to Baltimore to meet up with my sir for the trip we've been anticipating for a bit now.

Saturday afternoon we set off to the airport to fly off to London for a week long holiday. I was a bit unexcited about the flight because I didn't know what to expect and how uncomfortable/tired/grumpy I would get being stuck on a plane for nearly 9 hours.

Surprisingly, the flight was not bad at all. We arrived at Heathrow around 7am and by 9am we were walking Hyde Park. 
There has been so much amazing here to see. 

Spending the day just journeying with no real agenda was the absolute best thing for us. We saw so many beautiful sights in our neighborhood. It was the perfect start to the trip.

We stopped at a cute restaurant located along the river in Hyde Park. Brian had the full English breakfast and says it was delish!

We also made our first English friend. He was quite delightful.

We have absolutely no shame in being the ultimate tourist. Luckily, Brian is a great navigator so I just walk wherever he says we need to go.

We trailed off from Hyde Park and walked in to a crowd unexpectedly at Buckingham Palace. Apparently, the Queen was in and so we were able to experience the royal hysteria of people waiting to get a glimpse of her in the car as she was leaving. (We ended up walking away but I swear we saw her driving out the back gate where no one else was). 

Ok. I have a ton of pictures and could go on and on. Ill leave it there for now and will post more later.

Good day!

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…
