Updated with Recipe - Dip baby Dip?

If you haven't heard, which by now if you are connected to me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest, you have - on May 1st Scentsy introduced a new brand called Velata.  Velata is a fun fondue company based on the same principle as our Scentsy warmers - simplicity.  Boy has having a Velata warmer and its premium Belgium chocolate at home made desert simple.  Some nights after dinner - Munchkin will say "mom, can we Scentsy". I know he means Velata. Dip. Strawberries. Graham Crackers and whatever goodness we can find.

The other day one of my Scentsy/Velata sisters posted an amazing photo of a chocolate martini and she used Velata chocolate shavings to top it off.  Yummo!

I want to be sure to give Debra Sherman full credit for this recipe!

1 part uv cake vodka (was out of absolut vanilla)
1 part Godiva liqueur
1/2 part of creme de cacao
A squirt of Hershey syrup
Shake it up..and keep shaking. Get that arm workout in'
Shave up velata chocolate (use a grater or food processor) I chose dark chocolate :0) place the shavings In a small bowl.

Rim the martini glass (or glass of choice) with Hershey syrup. I pour syrup in a tiny "bowl" and dip the rim in it.

Dip the rim into the chocolate shavings of choice. Then place in the freezer for 5 minutes (just so it hardens)

Pour your amazing martini mixture in the rimmed glass and top it of with the rest of the velata shavings. I used alcohol infused chocolate whipped cream in the center and topped it off with a velata chocolate disc. Absolutely amazing!

So I wanted to see what else people would dip.  What would you dip in white, dark, caramel milk, or milk chocolate? Leave me a comment here telling me your favorite dipper, follow my blog, and I'll choose a lucky winner of a Velata warmer and bag of Velata premium Belgium chocolate of your choosing!

Pickle? Yes?
Churros...of course!
Chips - delish! Even better if they are bbq.

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…

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…

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…
