A little turquoise - boots, earrings and dinner plates

Dave Rasmey says if you want it put it in the budget

So I am still dreaming about my belt, but I have found a few other things to satisfy my turquoise addiction in the meantime. Dave Rasmey and I are getting along quite fine in my Financial Peace University classes so far. He is always talking about rewarding yourself by saving up for the things you want. And if you plan on buying than stick it in the budget. So budget I will.

My friend Nicole had a pair of these on at NCBA. Had no idea they weren't boots until she pulled up her pant leg. Problem is, although I took 12 years of ballet you would never know it by watching me try and walk a straight line (but I sure can dance one) and that would likely mean me twisting an ankle or some other embarrassing outcome in these shoes. So I pass these onto my other not so clumsy friends. ps. They are on SALE right now at!

So I finally stopped at Roy Frey Western Lifestyles in Topeka. I have only drove past it a million times on my journeys to K-State. Their western home furnishings department was awesome! One day when I get married or finally have my own house these babies will be mine. Stay tuned because more postings from Roy Frey to come. 

And these earrings that I discovered on A Classy, Southern Bride's blog (it's a good one!) So from what I can figure out Stella & Dot boutique is home based jewelry business that has some awesome stuff, and many more turquoise pieces than just these fabulous earrings. Going to have to spend some more time on this website. Anyone else heard of Stella & Dot before?


  1. Love these finds Crystal!! Excited to hear more about your Dave Ramsey course. I've seen Stella & Dot at a couple trade shows up here and a friend hard a party awhile back that I wasn't able to attend. Have fun browsing and budgeting ;)

    Thanks Crystal for the shout out! I love th mules, however, they are hard to walk in and I wouldn't recommend them if you are planning a wild night out on the town. And why does it seem like after I've purchased something they go immediately on sale?!!

  3. Crystal, I started following your blog a couple of weeks ago. We both share a passion for agriculture (I work for the corn side but I think that we are all in this together). I really like your blog. I'm commenting because I know you asked about Stella & Dot. I actually started selling their jewelry and LOVE the Charlize earrings you posted today. Let me know if you have any questions. I'm guessing that you are in Missouri (if you are working for the Angus Association) and I'm in Iowa. I know that you are talking about saving money but if you ever want to host a virtual jewelry party you could earn free jewelry. Hope that isn't to forward...but I know what it's like trying to save money and you see stuff that you love!

  4. Robyn I am going to have more on ole Dave this weekend. And Nicole thanks for the advice. mec thanks for following the blog, I agree agriculture is in it together. Do you have your own blog? Or an email address that I could reach you at?

  5. I also do Dave Ramsey! I learned this from my cousin who paid off his car 2 years early by doing it. Did you see the clothing booth right by the food area at NCBA? I wanted all of those clothes!!! But I resisted :)

  6. Hi Crystal,

    I don't have a blog yet, but have been thinking about one :). Just trying to get settled into my new job with the corn growers.

    My email address is I look forward to hearing from you!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from all my readers. Hope you have a fabulous day.
