Wednesday's with Friends

Many great and wonderful things come out of the work I do. One of the things I am most grateful for are the friendships that bud and then bloom through our daily interactions.

For almost a year now, I have been traveling to Santa Fe to do work for the New Mexico Centennial Foundation. Santa Fe is a beautiful place in and of itself. Rich in art and culture, being there provides a magnitude of beauty not seen any place else. I'm sure you have heard of many movie stars visiting and even choosing to live in the hills of our capital city. It is the oldest capital in the United States.

It is also full of great food. If you've seen me recently my hips will attest to that. Over the past year I have consumed such great food. My life and my hips are grateful.

So back to that friend part. Me and a couple of friends have been lunchin' it up around Santa Fe on Wednesdays for quite some time, and I just got the idea that we are experiencing too much great food for me not to write about. So I'll start now - and I think we're just going to have to revisit some of our favorite places so that I can recapture the experience just for you here.

So - we'll start with this past Wednesday. My friend Sarah asked if I had a craving for something and I did - I wanted some New Mexican food. I've been craving the green! Her family are regulars at a Santa Fe staple - Tomasitas. This was my first time there and let me tell you, it did not disappoint.

I had a combo plate with a Chile Relleno with green chile, a blue corn chicken enchilada with red chile, beef taco, refried beans and spanish rice. The plate was clean except for the beef taco. Not because I didn't want it but because by the time I finished scarfing down everything else I literally had no room to put anything else in my stomach.

Until -

Visiting Ellie's YoBerri is a must! This picture is actually from a few weeks back which was a combo of pomegranate and classic with chocolate chips and caramel sauce. This week I actually had a mix of cappuccino and classic with my usual chocolate chips and caramel sauce. Yum.

So, when in Santa Fe - I highly recommend visiting Tomasita's and YoBerri on Guadalupe Street!

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…

Colin Kaepernick is bae

I really don't need to say anymore.  
I've been saying people with a platform need to take a stand. I didn't want any Black athletes to travel to Rio for the olympics to represent the USA. I realize that is a big thing to ask. That is the dichotomy of being Black in America.  Black athletes representing a country and winning gold medals in the name of a country who doesn't fully see us. 
So Kaepernick gets all my love for taking a stand by taking his seat.  Personal protests have always been the catalyst for greater awareness and action. 
Let me tell you a quick story. This summer at our Scentsy convention, Orville gave a moving and authentic speech that touched on the current times. I could see how he genuinely felt about what he was saying. There was a moment where this quote by a Scentsy consultant's husband was placed on the screen. I realized when he said "he's Black", everyone remained seated, but when he said "and he's a cop" eve…
