DIY Shadow Box

One of my favorite things is the DIY Shadow Box. We have 2 - one for our pocket schedules and one for our game tickets. For the longest time, we kept them in zip lock baggies. We waited until Michael's had a special on shadow boxes. (We brought them when it was - buy one get one free or half off.)

We recently had to purchase a bigger one for our tickets. We go to a lot of sporting events - mostly baseball. 

This pile is pretty huge. I love seeing the variety from team to team. It's also great to see different things because part of Gary's job is designing the ticket stubs each year. One of my favorites is from Big 12 Baseball Tournament at Bricktown Ballpark. They were credit card size. 

Every game we always get a few pocket schedules. Some are really bulky and some have bare minimal information on it.

WEEK 20 - Something You Take For Granted

We are back for another week of the Gratitude Journey. Each week is a different topic to reflect on and make us more grateful.

THIS WEEK: Something You Take For Granted

Lately, I have been in a giant size funk. I wish I could explain what I need, but I can't which makes me feel more helpless. A feeling that I absolutely hate. I feel so paralyzed in everything decision and everything that I do. I know that I do have so much to be thankful for but right now it is difficult to see past my current pain. 

I am reminded that I have all the basics in my life right now. I have a job. (I actually have several) I have an apartment. I have food. I have the basics, but still, my brain can't comprehend that. I hope I break this funk soon, because I have been felt like prisoner in my own body.

What is something you take for granted?

WEEK 19 - Favorite Part of My City

We are back for another week of the Gratitude Journey. Each week is a different topic to reflect on and make us more grateful.

THIS WEEK: Favorite Part of My City 

My favorite part of Modesto is the Modesto Arch. According to Wiki, the Modesto Arch was built in 1912 with the towns the 2nd choice logo - Water. Wealth. Contentment. Health. The first choice that was rejected - Nobody's got Modesto's Goat. 

I don't know I love it so much, but anytime we are in downtown Modesto I want to go by. It just brings a smile to my face. 

What's your favorite place in your city?

The Contentment Challenge - Third Month - Round 2

If you are new to this space, I'm in the middle of my next round of The Contentment Challenge. Catch up with the posts below. Check out Preview, January 2019, February 2019.


Part of February was a big whole failure. I was just going through the motions of everything. I was just going from one job to another. Then in between a walk up call to myself and an accountability call I had with Danielle things started to shift. This month I didn't accomplish much on my to do list but I will say I got organized and started to put things in motion. So overall I feel good about the future.

The Contentment Challenge - March 2019

Theme: Determined
Verse: Philippians 4:11
Activity Challenge: Not spend any extra money

I need to remember the reason I wanted to sign up for this in the first place. I want to be better about the finances. I am definitely the spender in the relationship.
