Possibly Make an EXTRA $10+ with Your $50 JC Penney Voucher!


I know several of you were lucky enough to get in on the $50 JC Penney voucher that was offered earlier this week. Your voucher should now be available to use online, so I wanted to make sure you got as much out of it as you could.

Sign up for JC Penney coupons and deal alerts and you can maximize your voucher directly on by combining it with a great sale or coupon on the items you are looking to buy.

If you shop through Ebates, you will get 6% back – usually if you use a gift card you only get that on the amount left after the gift card is applied, but I’m not sure how that will work with this Plum District voucher. It can’t hurt to go through this link and it could get you some cash back.

In addition, right now if you are new to Ebates, you get a $10 gift card of your choice after you make a qualifying $25 purchase. This offer expires soon, and again I can’t promise that the voucher will be “qualifying” but if you’re using it anyway it can’t hurt to try. (That’s generally my motto if you don’t know that by now.) The best deals I get are usually from stacking deals together. Sometimes it’s super easy and every once in a while it doesn’t work, but you should always try.

If you didn’t get the JC Penney voucher, you can still make a qualifying purchase from Ebay, Target, Gap, Children’s Place or any of the hundreds of other stores that have partnered with Ebates and you will still get your $10 gift card!

MD Anderson Arrival - Waiting to See Doctor

Joey and I drove to Houston yesterday . . . after making sure our kids and animals were all taken care of, which is always a bigger deal than I anticipate it being. It's been a long time since Joey and I have had the chance to "get away" just the two of us, so even with the reason for the trip, it was nice to drive and chat and stop at Collin Street Bakery and Cooper Farms store and eat at Cracker Barrel as if we were on a vacation.

If you've ever taken an anti-anxiety medication, you know the strange feeling of knowing academically that the facts should be upsetting to you, but feeling inexplicably calm in the face of those still upsetting facts. It isn't truly inexplicable, though, as you took a medication that is formulated to do that very thing. However, recently I have found myself experiencing this very same feeling without any medication, and I am confident that it is the definition of "peace that passes understanding."

I will say waking up in a …

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…
