♥My heart is missing you♥

Did you ever see something from your past that reminded you just at that moment how much you miss someone who has been gone from your life for quite some time.  

I was sitting here tonight writing down all of the books I was reminiscing about as a child and I came across one called the Yearling.  

It was a huge book and took me a long time to read but it was special because it was given to me by a great aunt I was very close to.  All of a sudden I feel the tears flowing like Niagara Falls in here, and your heart aches just to see them or talk to them one more time.  ♥Aunt Wanda♥ I miss you!

Rain, rain go away

I know the old saying rain, rain go away come again another day is a silly little rhyme probably meant for kids.  However with the recent flooding and abundance of rainfall in our area I cant' help but enjoy the rain even in the midst of pending flood warnings and watches in our area.  There is something about the rain that makes me feel it's God's way of cleansing us here on earth of our sinful natures and selfish desires that pollute the everyday streets of our society.  I cant' help but wonder if the recent fluctuation perhaps in our area is some indication of our increasing desires to feed our own needs rather than the needs of others, and to make known our works to the world instead of God's goodness first and foremost.  I wonder if he is cleansing the world along with our hearts?  I try to think that deep down I am a good person, and I want that close personal relationship with God but I know I am human, and I do sin and so for that today instead I think I'll say rain, rain why dont' you stay and cleanse all of my sin away!

Baltimore Natural Health Expo/ IKEA

Traveled to Baltimore this weekend to the Natural Health Expo and found some great amazing new products and business with amazing products that are good for the body & soul.  I am just learning about all these things and am loving the experience, keeping an open mind sometimes is very hard especially when you have a stubbornness like me that I like to hold onto but I am enjoying this new journey in my life experiencing the good nourishing things this world has to offer, opposed to the things that weigh us down.  I for one need nothing more to weigh me down in my life and so starting with number one learning to take care of myself & my family is the most important.  I dont' know how, but I pray to have the energy to keep focused and determined to bring a little more organization to life.   It did help that we stopped at IKEA on the way home...:) 

All the fun little freebies we got to bring home and try!

Here are my designs and I used some items from check them out for great deals on great items for scrapbooking and altered art. 


As I am sure you all know and are aware of the extreme couponing show, and although they are way extreme I have been anticipating my first trip that would compete with the high percentage of discounts they have gotten up to date.  Today was my first haul I was in tow with coupons and list, I was well aware of how much my bill was going to be and in anticipation I was literally shaking with delight as I checked out.  Although I knew my bill would be small, watching her add it up seemed cruel and unusual punishment because I began to worry what if I figured wrong, or what if the coupons don't take (they were legit online coupons but sometimes they get fussy about them if they are printed out).  I saw my bill $84.82, my heart sunk that seemed way too high even for the retail price of my stuff but I quickly moved onto handing her my coupons and hoping for the best because I knew I didn't have that much money with me.  It didn't take long to see the long time awaited benefits I was about to reap when she finally told me my total I was giddy, almost giggly inside.  I had accomplished something that seemed almost impossible, I knew it could be done I had watched every episode of the show but how could I be so organized that one day I would save my family enough money to feel above a 75% threshold.  I did it and here is my proof, it's a good day and I'm going to bathe in this success a little longer so to all of you couponers or non-couponers who are leery.  I am a stay-at-home mom and do have the time necessary to search and research, but I challenge you.  One half of an hour a day, look for the sights on facebook, blogs, check out, smartsource.  You will not be disappointed, even 15 minutes a day will reap you some benefit.  The extra money in your pocket is worth it!  Here is my delightful photo to bask in the glory of today......................

Gone too into football season

So I have been gone so long forgot how to blog, hee hee just kidding but seriously I feel like  I have been out of the loop I have so much to catch up on and feel very overwhelmed but I am starting with this football post.  My friend was baking cupcakes for her little boys football team today and I happened upon visiting her and had to volunteer to taste test, it was agonizing friends, but I did it and survived.  Hee hee!  They were yummy and I had to show how cute they were.  This is my friend with her creation, the final product close-ups and our little taste testers.  I hope you are all having a great summer into fall, I don't enjoy this cold weather but I am going to embrace the beauty of the fall and it's colors.  My daughter and I are coloring pumpkins today, yes that's right coloring hopefully if I get myself in gear pictures and more pictures to come.  Enjoy enjoy!  Until next time, lovies and huggies.  ♥
