CoinstarVisit any CoinStar kiosk location between now and September 23, pour at least $20 worth of cold hard change in exchange for an Amazon.com Gift Card and the system will generate a code for a $5 eCertificate for Amazon MP3 credit at the bottom of your receipt.

What I like about Amazon MP3 is that they cost less than another popular download platform we all know, usually by at least 20% for the exact same thing.

Every good deal has it’s terms, but they are pretty reasonable ;)

Dear HEB,

This week, you rock my socks because I purchased That Green Sauce at Hatch week and… I… Am… Loving… It!

That Green Sauce - HEB

It is not for the faint of heart though, a delicious combo of jalapeno and poblano peppers, is of medium heat and gives a sweet kick to begin and a savory spicy punch at the end.

It was a struggle of a purchase, at $4.00 for an 11 oz jar, it wasn’t exactly cheap. However, the many uses and small amounts needed to satisfy my taste buds are worth every penny! I used one teaspoon to top each of our stuffed peppers two nights ago, two tablespoons for dipping Chees-Its [yum!], and for lunch, today, I drizzled one teaspoon to my cheese pizza.

Is your mouth watering yet? I know mine is!

You can find this delicious sauce on the chip aisle year round or with the Hatch presentations going on now at your local HEBs.

PS. Thanks, HEB, for the warning label on the back, which I did not read until half of the jar was gone. It reads: WARNING: Can be addictive! Pour it on tacos, eggs fajitas or just use it as a salsita (dip) with chips… again and again.

It is one thing to dream. It is another to catch a dream.

I made this beautiful Lakota [aka. dream catcher] out of leather, ribbon, turquoise beads and feathers for our newly painted bedroom. I am hoping it will catch all of the poorly narrated dreams I am currently having and producing better sleeping memory’s… those that do not include water?

Dream Catcher Collage - Frugal Stepmom

I found such joy and creativity in making this dream catcher that I am contemplating making more and selling them on SweetgumWay . Check back soon, check back often, you just never know where my wild hair will take me!

Ever have one of those days that the devil creeps in and steals your joy for a moment?

Then you remember the time you went help you brother or sister move something and they got hurt and you couldn’t help but laugh and laugh and laugh?

Growing up you just don’t understand the concept that you’re actually going to be friends one day and enjoy eachother’s company. You don’t understand the process until it is complete[ish].

I share these thoughts because I was just looking for a photo to add to my brother’s contact and this is what I chose:

Soft Kitty

Exhibit A: Soft Kitty

Here, you see a picture from last Easter when I accidentally left my camera at my parent’s house. Now, every time he calls or sends me an email I will see this and I will laugh because I think this picture is awesome and it makes me laugh. 

In the end, Don’t let the devil steal your Joy and Always find something to make you smile!

What makes you smile?

I found a lovely typography print on Pinterest yesterday in my lonely state, thanks for your prayers!

A Parent's Promise by Joel Felix I am not your friend—I am your parent. I will stalk you, flip out on you, lecture you, drive you insane, be your worst nightmare and hunt you down when needed, because I love you. When you understand that, I will know you're a responsible adult. You will never find someone who loves, prays, cares and worries about you more than me. This is my promise to you."

A Parent’s Promise by Joel Felix

It Reads:

“I am not your friend – I am your parent.

I will stalk you, flip out on you, lecture you, drive you insane, be your worst nightmare and hunt you down when needed, because I love you.

When you understand that, I will know you’re a responsible adult. You will never find someone who loves, prays, cares and worries about you more than me.

This is my promise to you.”

Do you think Joel would make this into wallpaper?

Trying to be the good balance of a stepmom/parental unit in our household, but this past weekend the boundaries were crossed and I had to be, what might seem to some, the “bad guy”. I am not Lady Tremaine. It is heavy on my heart that I needed to make the lines clear to my Sweet C.

An amazing summer with our Sweet C ended with the last three days being so difficult all because of a silly pair of jeans. We were so many steps ahead, and because “we” couldn’t communicate, we are so many steps behind. I am not lady Tremaine.

It was perfect timing that I was able to read I Corinthians 13 in my quiet time this weekend, God’s timing is impeccable. I love this girl so much, but God loves her so much more.

We need your prayers. A lot of them. Prayers for my baby to learn from this and grow. Prayers for me to know that I am a work in progress and God is perfect and He is taking care of our hurting hearts.

I would love to hear from you too, if you are hurting today, I would love to pray with you!

It’s SO close, I can hardly contain myself!

My Sweet C is going to be home TOMORROW and her room is coming along, minus the whole ruffle throw thing I promised.

Here is a sneak peek, in case she happens to be reading this week… if so, I LOVE YOU BABY! CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU!

PS. I sent her a joke today: What do you call a fake noodle?

 PPS. This happened to our bedroom yesterday… IDK HOW that got there ;) Guess I’ll be making that ruffle throw after all!
