Single moms vacay club

This is the story of what happens when you text your good good girlfriend and say "hey, let's go on family vacay together," and her immediate response is "ok!"

One day I just thought to myself "self, it'd be so cool for you and some of your single mom friends to plan family vacations together so that our kids can have fun with their friends." So our recent trip to Denver was a test on that idea and it proved to be a great idea ( thank you, thank you very much). 

I know my little guy was so excited! All day he kept asking when are we going on vacation. I think the anticipation and excitement wore him out! 

Of course two single mamas traveling with kiddos need lots of God's protection and maybe a good luck charm.  Shae found it in a rest stop bathroom and washed it and everything! 

The boys could not wait to get to the pool when we arrived at the hotel. We must have looked like we had been trying to tame lions rolling into the lobby because the woman at the concierge desk gave us free drink tickets for the rooftop lounge (mommy score)!

Dining in was about all we had left in us.

Of course food must always remain a main attraction when traveling and in life.

And we discovered a way to day drink (disguised as milkshakes for the kids and mudslides for the adults).

Denver has these really neat painted pianos all along the 16th Street mall. They lend themselves to the opportunity for interesting conversations. 

Boys love baseball.

And momies deserve a wind down.

Because mama always said....

They may be friends forever just like their moms are. 


  1. How awesome. Looks as though you all had a wonderful adventure! I love it. Makes for lasting memories and friendships;)

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…

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…
