Clothes Dilemma: I'm 24 & a Mom. What Can I Wear?

Why is it so hard to shop for clothes? Well, for me it is. 

Yesterday afternoon, my husband surprised me with a shopping spree. I decided to start at Ross since they have great bargains, and I hardly ever leave there disappointed. I had forgotten how hard it is for me to find clothes, until I started scouring the racks in search of blouses and dresses.

Did You Watch? #ExtremeCouponing New Season Began


Extreme Couponing follows savvy shoppers as they plan and plot their way to unbelievable savings. Witness amazing shopping skills and shocking stockpiles of merchandise, as everyday people go to extremes in pursuit of extraordinary deals. ~ TLC

Season 3 of the infamous TLC series, Extreme Couponing, premiered last night, and yes, I did tune in. I did so for my personal entertainment. You see this show is just that, entertaintment. Just like reality shows with no reality, extreme couponing depicts what producers want to be shown, not necessarily real life. There is nothing particularly educational about the show that a viewer wouldn't have already learned in previous episodes.

Top Tips for Dining Out on a Budget!

I'm a foodie. I love to eat out and try new foods. Eating out can be so expensive, especially when you have a family. Luckily, our daughter is only a toddler, but those kids meals can add up too! I never try to pay full price when eating out. Lately, I have been doing pretty well in this area. Here are my top tips that I use to help save my family money when dining out.

Add These to Your Reading List!

In March, I came across Sandy Rayla's website www.BeautifulWomanhood.com. She was preparing for the Fast-For-Your-Marriage Challenge and I was really excited to participate. For 21 days, I followed along as Sandy guided us through the fasting process, shared personal testimony, scripture and prompts.

My Heart Aches & My Testimony

Today's post is going to be really raw for me, but it is one that needs to be written. It's going to be a spiritual and emotional one.

Marriage's are really under fire lately and it hurts my heart and spirit to see the devil claiming victory over so many of them. I see so many of my Facebook friends' status' change to it's complicated or single. Yes, I actually do care about the people on my friend list. At points in my life, many were really important to me and hold a special place in my memories. These were not people claiming to be married because they thought it was cute. These are real marriages with real children involved. Marriages on both sides of my family are also under fire.

My Mother's Day Celebrating Starts TODAY!

Tonight is National Mom's Nite Out. I was so excited until I discovered that that almost no one here is doing anything special for it. I did find one store that is participating. I really wanted to go at first, but, after some consideration, decided not to. It probably would be somewhat fun, but I think for one store it would be a waste of time. My mall isn't even participating. Ugh...I miss Atlanta. I may have not had a car of our own, but there was someplace to go. Now we have a car of our own, with no place to go tonight. That's the life in the suburbs I guess.

Well, I guess the benefit of staying home is that I can participate in a few Twitter parties. There's a couple of good ones tonight. Maybe, just, maybe, I will win something. Then, I look forward to my mom's group outing tomorrow night and my spa day Saturday. Sunday is for whatever the family has planned for me. As long as I don't have to cook, I'm game for anything. Just playing. I love cooking for my hubby and daughter.

In the meantime, I will be picking up a few freebies this evening from CVS and Walgreen's. CVS is giving away a FULL-size moisturizing body wash (up to $2.37 value). Get it by heading over to their Facebook page here. They will email the coupon to you withing 24 hours, though mine came soon after requesting. Walgreen's is giving away two (2) free 8x10 photo enlargements (5.98 Value). Go to their photo site here and use the code FREE4ME and FREE4ME2 at checkout. You may have to do separate orders. 

What do you have planned this weekend?

Hot New Costumes Including The Avengers!


In three months, my toddler turns 3. Once August comes and goes, it becomes that time of year again. The kids are back to school, the weather cools, the leaves change and fall decorations start going up - my favorite of all being the decorations for Halloween.

Book Review: "Enemies of the Heart" by Andy Stanley

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick;
who can understand it? Jeremiah 17:9 (ESV)
 

Formerly released as "It Came from Within," Andy Stanley's  newest book, Enemies of the Heart: Breaking Free from Emotions that Control"  is a great read for anyone has a heart (pun intended.) Andy proposes that there are 4 primary enemies of the heart: guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy. By offering practical direction, supported with biblical insight, the author seeks to help you break free from their destructive power over your heart...and your life. 

"...just as a heart attack has the potential to destroy your body, so spiritual heart disease has the potential to destroy you and squeeze the life out of your most valuable relationships."

Counting Down to My Spa Day!

 *Singing* "I have a spa day!!"

It all started when I was participating in a great series by Tara over at The Young Mommy Life called the Self-Care Challenge. And there it was...Day #10 – Plan a “Treat Yo Self” day. So, I found a great deal on SweetJack.com and booked myself a spa day this month. Right now it only consists of a massage, shampoo and blow dry but I just checked out their website and am thinking about adding an express mani-pedi too! I'm counting down the days!
