My garden

I have been looking forward to the spring time so I can get outside and start planting my garden and decorating the patio. I love taking it outside when it is warm.  I've been daydreaming of Casa Azul, dreaming up some serious inspo.


Every time I get serious about starting, it gets cold again. I know it's too early to start planting but these 70 degree days make it hard.


So this week I started plotting planters and decided to start on a small scale.  I bought a new plant (it's pink and green) for 50% off because they had had it in their freezers from last year for my office. It makes me happy. 


Then I bought this cute vase from Target with the idea of repotting some succulents I had. That didn't work too well. 


So one more trip to the store and we sorted some things out.

The cute stand was just a standard black plant stand that you know had to get a touch of my favorite gold spray paint. Voi la. 



There's something therapeutic about getting your hands in the dirt and handling living things.  One of my co-workers has been teaching me how to better care for the green life around me and encouraging me to talk to my plants and love on them.  What are your garden plans?

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…
