Need a friend???

My mom testified at church one time, and she shared something that I had NEVER heard before!!! It was soooo neat I just have to share it with you all!!!
She said that when we lived in New York, before we got in church, one of the things that prompted her to EVEN go to church at all, was that she was looking for a friend. She said that although there were people our family associated with, she didn't feel like she really had her own friend.
She was hoping for someone that she could do stuff with or just talk with on the phone! So when the Kathy, the lady across the street from us, invited my mom to church, one of the things that prompted her to go was she thought..."Maybe if I go, I'll find a FRIEND!!!"
She said that there were a lot of people that she met at church that she enjoyed fellowship with, BUT she said the friend she got, wasn't THE FRIEND she had been looking for. She said that when she got the Holy Ghost, she got a friend that has NEVER left her side. We were only at that church for nine months before we moved to AZ, she left behind her friends at that church, BUT Jesus, came right along with her!!! All her life long till she died she had Jesus, and she said that Jesus is STILL the best friend she has ever had!!!
Are you looking for a friend?
 JESUS wants to be YOUR friend!!! GO TO JESUS!!!
♪Oh, What a friend we have in Jesus! 
... a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
(Proverbs 18:24)

A month or so ago, I was teaching my Sunday School class about heaven and I was telling them that the beauty of heaven is unfathomable for us to truly even be able to comprehend in our minds. I was like, I want you all right now to close your eyes and think about THE ABSOLUTE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING you have everrrrrr seen in your life!!!
Sooooooooo all my kids closed they're eyes thinking and thinking...AND THEN...they're teacher, Sister Mary, had a very MARYISH MOMENT while they were thinking about the most beautiful thing they had everrrrr seen...
I was like, okay, okay, okaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy now, don't ALL OF YOU ALL at once be thinking about...
Then I patted myself on the back!!! 
Good one Sister Mary!!! GOOOOOOD ONE!!!! 
Then we all just busted up laughing soooooo hard...I guess I kinda ruined the serious moment, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut that's what it's like having me for a Sunday School Teacher!!!!

You know I'm in heaven IF...

You know I'm in heaven if you ever hear me say...
If you hear me say that, there is ONLY ONE REASON...
I'm IN HEAVEN!!!! 
I'm alway either on a diet, taking a day off (Or a day that turns to a week;) Or going back on a's just LIFE...I've excepted that this just the make up of me!!! There are some thing that are just ALWAYS a struggle ...buuuuuuuut Heeeeeeeeyyyy a struggle is okaaaaaaaaaay, because as long as there is a struggle, you are STILL FIGHTING!!!  There is NO STRUGGLE when you give up!!! Between genetics, cooking skills, and the life of an avid foodie-THE STRUGGLE IS REAL FOLKS!!! 

♪♫There is coming a day, when my Jesus I shall see...♪♪
♪they'll be no more dieting there, ♫

Foodie Friday! (Macy's Coffee House Review!)

Flagstaff, AZ

Do you like animals Mary??? Ummmmm...well i'm NOT really a pet person, buuuuuuuut...I love stuffed animals and juicy burgers!!! (Okay, ok, nobody throw anything at me...I would NEVER hurt a dog or cat...I'm just NOT a pet person! The hair, the drool, the smell, THE's just NOT my thing! I'm a people person! A baby person! I value humanity so don't judge me until you have changed as many diapers,-old and ME! Jus sayin;)
Sooooooooo what's a meat-lovin-girl like me doing 5-staring a vegetarian coffee shop???? Weeeeeeeelllll, that alone, the fact that a meat-loverrrr is floored by the taste and quality of the food at this shop, speaks for itself!!!
When i realized that this was a vegetarian coffee shop, despite the high ratings, i really hesitated to try it!!! However, the to-go line going all the way down the street lured me in!!!
The good news is that although they are vegetarian and vegan friendly, they do not competely disregard all dairy! It seems that they do use products that animals produce, they just don't use anything that kills a animal! Soooooooo REAL Cheese and REAL eggs !!!
All the baked products here were amazing!!! You have to get the biscuit with their homemade jam and butter!!! You have to get the grilled
 cheese with pepper jack, cheddar, provolone, spinach, and onions!!! 

Don't even get me started on all their epic desserts!!! WOW!!!

You must and i do absolutely mean, MUST,  get the Macy's Special house signature coffee drink!!! Omw it is soooooooo astoundingly, amazingly, deliciously good!!! It's like a Espresso, steamed hot chocolate- topped with a marshmalllowy-whipped-cream!!! and they have all homemade sauces and flavors!!! Annnnnnnd personally, I think it's one of those drinks thats just better hot!!!

The main downside to this place is that I've neverrrrr been in line for less than 45 minutes!!! Also, I would recommend that WHEN they use a meat substitute, that they say on the menu that it is a meat substitution. I read a lot of complaints about that in reviews. Not everyone realizes that it is a vegetarian coffee shop! If you say bacon, bacon lovers are expecting REAL BACON! For people like me that are willing to try something new, buuuuuut still wanna know what I'm putting inside of me! When you say, "Vegan" biscuits and gravy, I wanna know what is used in it instead of sausage!!! Jus sayin!!! 

Can't wait for another break to head up to flagstaff!!! I hear a Macy's Special calling me for a sip of deliciousness!!! The 2.5 hour drive is worth every sip and every calorie!!!!! How amaaaaaazing will this drink be in COLD COOLER weather!?!?!?!

Too much chocolate???

 Sooooooooooooo recently, I've endeavored to learn how to make a Boston Creme pie-which is really a cake!!! Two layers with a heavy vanilla custard in between!!!! The first time I made it I thought it was PERFECT!!!! However, the cake turned out REALLY dry!!!! i WAS SOOOOO SAD!!! 


Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut of course I did NOT give up, I just said, okaaaaaaaay Boston Creme Pie, CHALLENGE EXCEPTED!!! Annnnnnnnnd let me tell you all something, this time it came out


Don't judge the taste of a Mary-cake by their looks!!! Jus sayin!
If you want the recipe hit me up!!!!

The one and only problem was that I decided to double the icing recipe and then without thinking it through, I just poured the whole thing on top...


Have you ever heard of those episodes where the bride gets all these crazy pictures in her wedding dress?????? They call them, TRASH THAT DRESS!!! Let's just say I was liiiiiiiiike, annnnnnnnd ON THIS EPISODE OF TRASH THAT KITCHEN, Mary destroys the kitchen by flooding it out with CHOCOLATE!!!!
Buuuuuuuut then to my sister, I was liiiiiiiiike, buuuuuuuut really, 

My sister was like, If it's dripping off the cake, onto the plate, off the plate and onto the counter and off the counter onto the floor, 
You can have to much chocolate!!!
♥Mary Frances :)
P.S. The the best messes are the one's you can lick clean!!! Hee, hee!!!
