So, I wrote a post for my new blog, "The Life of a Coach's Wife" and being the science nerd I am, I couldn't just accept the fact that the recipe told me to put olive oil, brown sugar, and honey together. I had to go further and do a little research. I even came across this amazing article about olive oil helping to reduce forms of skin cancer. So...I decided to share the post with y'all here too!
And please, if you get a chance, go and follow "Life of a Coach's Wife" on Facebook! (I'll be posting there a lot more than here.)
Here is the link to the Brown Sugar Body Scrub!
Hope you enjoy!

Since I have started planning my wedding (you can read all about on South Texas Wedding), I've caught the crafty bug and started making creations. With my mom, we started A & E Creations and recently just made our first sale!
I hope you enjoy the products as much as we enjoy making them!

My Most Recent Wall Art!
How did I make this?
TOILET PAPER ROLLS!!
Now, I'm huge on recycling all forms of paper and cardboard in our home, but how about upcycling?
Toilet Paper Rolls
I cut each toilet paper roll (and one paper towel roll) into about 1 inch strips. I then pushed them flat and hot glued them together. I started with a central 6 petal flower and just kept adding from them with hot glue along the way.
Once the glue dried, I sprayed a dark primer and then a chocolate gloss spray paint!
End result...I love it!!
Very simple project and you can use many different designs. Get creative!!

So, I have a confession...I have stopped couponing!
That's right, until today, I haven't cut a coupon in almost 12 months!!! Ahh!! To fill y'all in, I got engaged! Yep, I started a new blog to follow the engagement, South Texas Wedding. That's taken a lot of time with the wedding planning and blog AND I started my professional career (night shift to boot), we moved into our first apartment, he started his professional career, (coaching so we have games once a week), and traveling back home at least once a month...just to name a couple!
I mean, I still go down the aisles of HEB and take the little yellow coupons that they have on hand, but nothing similar to the way I used to coupon. And...we are on our last bottle of shampoo and last deodorant stick. Our stockpile has lasted almost 1 whole year, but it's exhausted now. Being the Frugal Science Gal I am, I'm having a really hard time paying full price for a bottle of shampoo!
So, here it is...I'm starting my couponing journey again. Since I don't have as much time to plan the shopping trip like I used to so I think I am going back the the coupon file folder. Each week I'm going to go through the ads and cut the coupons of the products that we use. I mean, even if I'm only saving $0.25 on a product that we use all the time, it is better than nothing. Hopefully I'll get closer to the way it was before!
We need to save money for our Wedding!!
