How Lovely

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a lovely weekend y'all~ I just wanted to re-cap on my weekend.  "These are a few of my favorite things...and now I don't feel so bad!!~~"

Did you catch that line?! It's from the Sound of Music!! Only like, one of my favorite films of all time! When I was a wee little child, I remember I watched it 4 times in a row in ONE sitting! Call me cwazy. :P

Anyway, I'll keep it short!

Have you ever tried Seeds of Change Quinoa Rice?! It's sooo delicious! I highly recommend it if you like the chewy texture of rice, along with a gentle buttery taste and a hint of garlic.  I got a pack of 6 at Costco about 2 months ago, and I find it to be very convenient when I'm in a hurry.

In the mix went in:  Tomato pasta sauce, hummus, carrots, Seeds of Change rice, mozzarella, and avocado.  I whipped up this dish within 4 minutes flat using the microwave!  :D

I loaded up on Yerba Mate--one of my favorite things to drink! It's a staple Argentinean herb that we drink for leisure, relaxation, and energy.  Sometimes, it's a great alternative to coffee you know? :P  It's funny because in Argentina, you'll walk by all these people lounging in their comfy chairs out on the sidewalk while drinking Mate.  These people know how to take leisure time seriously!

Greg and I saw our children over the weekend and had a blast with them! They were wilder than usual, but aren't they so adorable? :)

Eh?  What's that car doing here?

Haha! Today's service at the church where Greg has been giving messages, was at Lew Webb's Automobile Center!  This church doesn't have an official building and the usual Synagogue they've been staying at had some deal going on today.  So we had service at this location! Pretty neat huh?

Greg was too excited :P

So we had a potluck today! And so I made these last night and good thing I started early!  Really, because my eyes were getting lazy-eyed all the way into 1 AM while making these. :P

One of the best things over the weekend was seeing all these beautiful souls!  Seeing the people at the church growing and striving to live non-complacent lives was truly one of the greatest encouragements for me!

Oh and one more thing! Remember Lauren from a few weeks ago?!  It's soooo weird....but while driving at completely the opposite side of 'town', I saw her two times over this past week! I don't believe in coincidences and I know this happened for a reason.

But...she's been walking with this sketchy dude and I'm praying that she's alright.  I'm asking God for wisdom as to what He wants me to do.  Perhaps this time, it's just to pray on behalf of her situation.  We'll see.

Have you seen the Irish movie Once by the way?  I watched it with Greg and the storyline as well as the music is so amazing!  Admittedly, there were far too many F-bombs in this film...but once we looked past that, we found that the end message is a very good one, though the ending itself is very bitter sweet. :(

My Question:  What's your favorite movie or movie genre? Did anything bless you this week, that you'd like to share? :) Have you tried Seeds of Change?  What's your go-to food/dish when you're in a hurry?
