    10 Out Of The Box Things Couples Can Do On A Tight Budget

    No matter what your income, we all find times in our lives where we are "broke". Granted starving we may not be, but if you are taking care of your elders, or still paying some bills for your young adult children, and have found yourself tightening your belt lately, like my husband and I, then here are 10 things you can do as a couple that you may not find elsewhere on the web! Trust me, I have searched for things to do with my husband that cost little, to nothing!


    The problem is that I find lists with too many "girly" things that men would not take interest in, or I find the same old tired ideas such as play a card game, or clean out the garage. Yeah, ummm we've already hit on all that.


    So I wanted to create my own, "out of the box" ideas to share with you that are fun for both men and women.


    1. Join a meet up group.

    10 Out Of The Box Things Couples Can Do On A Tight Budget


    Yes MeetUp Groups are still a thing! In fact we found several groups we were interested in the moment we signed up! You can get together with board game fans, try your hand at LARPing, gather with beer or wine aficionados, exercise groups, anything, you name it! If you do not find something you are interested in you can start your own MeetUp Group. 

    2. Start kickboxing lessons from a youtube video - put it on your big screen.

    Paw Tracks - A Not So Wordless Wednesday Pet Post

    I have never participated in a Wordless Wednesday here on the blog because let's face it, it's difficult to shut me up! I tried to just let the photos do the talking but I had so many feelings, thoughts, and emotions run through me when I snapped these pictures that I just have to share what was on my mind. 


    Paw Tracks - A Not So Wordless Wednesday Pet Post

    Within the past year and a half we have lost a number of our fur family, four to be exact, two dogs, and two cats, despite them all having excellent veterinary care. When I snapped these pictures my heart was full because of the cute little tracks our Lyla had left behind. A reminder that we have life in our home, love in our home, and a nice yard for our Lyla to play in.

    Equality For All Let's Change The Conversation!

    I was recently introduced to the organization EQUAL when I received a cute beanie and bracelet from the organization. I talked briefly about it in an article where I asked for everyone to Prepare, Pamper, and Prioritize in 2017



    Equality For All Let's Change The Conversation!

    Speaking on prioritizing I think it is due time we started to open the conversation of equality back up and that is what EQUAL is doing! 



    Equality For All Let's Change The Conversation!


    When it comes to issues of equality it is a wide open gaping topic. From race relations, to gender equality, to gender, and those with disabilities. It is not just a black and white issue. 


    Equality For All Let's Change The Conversation!

    Most people will tell you they feel at some point in their lives they have been discriminated against, that includes men! The all american white male has even faced discrimination in his lifetime.

    When Kindness Comes Back To You And You Are Humbled By It

    I had a humbling experience the other day. 


    My husband and I were donating some clothing and household items we no longer needed to a local thrift shop, since our preferred place to donate was closed. As we were unloading and carrying boxes into the shop, a man held the door open for us. I thanked him, and gave him a friendly smile as I would any other human being. I was impressed with his kindness to stay there a few minutes longer and help us out. 


    After we were done carrying in a few boxes and headed back to the van I thanked him, said have a nice day, and smiled, then started to walk back to our van. 


    The man seemed to be hesitating a little, then approached me. He held out his hand and presented me with a lovely pair of earrings. He said that he had just purchased them in the shop and thought they were special because he is a jewelry maker himself. He went on to explain how the long parts of the earrings were made from porcupine quills. He seemed very proud of them as if he had made them himself. To him they were very special. He said he wanted me to have them. 

    When Kindness Comes Back To You And You Are Humbled By It

    I will admit in that moment it felt a little awkward. Taking a gift from a total stranger is not something I come across every day. I also have another confession ... as I stood there face to face with this man, I noticed that he appeared homeless.

    What I Am Wearing Today #23 Fashionably Rustic In Jeans and Vegan Leather

    Disclosure: Affiliate links are used in this article. 

    As much as I would love to be able to say I am a dress type of girl, I can't. I have filled out style profiles for clothing subscriptions and ticked off the box for dresses numerous times but the fact of the matter is, I am a jeans type of person. I want to be a dress gal, but my lifestyle just does not provide me enough opportunity to wear them, even though I do love them. 


    My every day wear looks something like this ... 


    What I Am Wearing Today #23 Fashionably Rustic In Jeans and Vegan Leather

    Which brings to mind, I need to buy more jeans since I wear them almost daily! These are from Just Black. You can find them on Amazon in various styles. I believe I received mine were in a subscription box a couple of years back. They are a designer brand, and have worn nicely over the past two years. They are my second favorite brand of jeans just after Kut From The Kloth.

    Wearing jeans does not mean you can't look stylish, fashionable, and on trend! My James&Co. vegan leather jacket dresses up my rustic look nicely I think.
