About Denverista

Growing up, my grandmother taught me the value of a dollar. However, somewhere along the way I forgot about or choose to ignore it. I am a SAHM of two of the cutest brats and a wife to the most handsome guy in the world. I am remembering and learning how to stretch my dollars more than my grandmother taught me. I guess it is different when it is your money, lol. I love knowing that I am able to provide many wonderful items for my family, without exceeding our budget. Also, knowing how much money I am actually saving while still living a wonderful and adventurous life in beautiful Colorado. I look forward to helping you Stretch Your $'s Mile High! Best Regards & Warmest Wishes! Misty

Welcome to this weeks party of Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party!  Thanks for swinging by.  We are finally drying out here in Texas.  So I am putting my plans on hold of building a big ol’ boat.  Just in time for us to take our family beach vacation.  Let’s hope that the rain stays away since this will be my first camping trip.  I hear camping and rain don’t mix together very well.  Ack!  Just the thought scares me.  Since it is my first time camping, do you have any good camping tried and true tricks that you’d be willing to share with me?  I would love to hear about them if so.

Spring is officially here!  In Texas, we have been dealing with a lot of May rains.  Which kinda messes my new sport up.  My husband and I have been playing softball.  This past week was my first time ever, swinging a bat.  I gotta say, I am not too bad.  I am expecting a phone call any minute from the Atlanta Braves to sign me up to their team.  😉

Let’s not wait any longer, go link up your blog posts and let me see what you worked on this past week.  Have a great week!  And always, Thanks for stopping by!  You’re the best!   (more…)
