Wednesday's Food With Friends

My weekly Foods With Friends post is highlighting two days of good food and great friends. A girl shouldn't eat so good...oh but she should.

My dear friend Cecilia and I usually lunch at The Grove at least once a week. This week, I was feeling like a change. So we stopped by Farina Pizzeria for some sunshine on the patio. We both started looking over the menu to place our order, and as we couldn't decide what we wanted we decided to just share it all. Oh what a great decision that was.

San Pellegrino Limonata? Refresh!

I don't even remember what salad this was - but with crumbles of blue cheese (my fav) & apples. It was perfect.

This pizza was to die for. It had goat cheese (wait...I think that's my fav), italian bacon (I forget the fancy name for it), leeks and some other stuff on it. AHHHH-Mazing.

...and since I call myself a runner now - I feel I deserve all the carbs my tummy can handle. So we topped it all off with some spaghetti & meatballs. Desert was a frozen espresso with cream. I forgot to snap a picture before we devoured it - in a classy way of course!

Wednesday's are what these posts are really supposed to be about, so my trusted lunch group headed to Guadalupe Cafe in Santa Fe for a late lunch before I headed back to Albuquerque. This is a re-visit - and so worth it every time. I go with the Guadalupe Special (I think that's what it is called). Turkey, swiss, avocado, special mayo, noodles on the side. Yes please. Sarah went with a salad (I don't remember which one but look at the size of that thing!). Needless to say - we all had leftovers to take home!

This week's Food with Friends was another HUGE success. Farina Pizzeria on Central in Albuquerque and Guadalupe Cafe on Old Santa Fe Trail in Santa Fe. Two thumbs up!

Until next week....

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…
