I went back for seconds

Happy Friday! I can’t believe its Friday already.

Given that my car was stuck on the coast for repair, I had to go back to get it. I think it planned for it to break down over there. Just so I could return and enjoy myself. I must say, before anything more that God is unbelievably good. The total cost of the repairs were $5,000 and I only paid $18.31. I wouldn’t have paid anything had it not broke down on an empty tank. So all I had to pay for was the $18 in gas they put in.


I feel so blessed. He even said, 'I don’t know how much you paid for that extended warranty, but it definitely paid off right here.’ Oh how right he was. In the past 2 months, its needed $7,000 total worth of repairs and it was all covered under warranty.

I didn’t want to make the trip alone, so I called out to my dear friend to make a day trip with me. This was no small feat as she has 4 kids, but she got the clear to go, and off we went. We picked up my car, and headed to Natural Café in San Luis Obispo for lunch. If you’re ever in the area, on Higuera is this café. Its so good! hippy-ish, but the food is delicious and fresh!

em115I had to take her to Bali’s frozen yogurt, where we loaded up on the treats and sat in the little pavilion, people watching. Completely relaxing, with a slight breeze and cool temps. Eventually, we made our way to Pismo Beach to walk around and enjoy the sea air. It was chillier there, as it always is, but we sat down on a bench and watched the ocean and time pass. No rush. No agenda. Just us and the beach and a breeze.

She caught me in the act {of shooting}.
It’s a tradition for just about everyone who loves clam chowder, that they have to stop at Splash Café in Pismo. If you ever go, you must get yourself in that line and order you some clam chowder! Its delicious. Hands down the best clam chowder around….just don’t look up the calories, and enjoy it for what it is. And of course, get the loaf of bread with it. Might as well, right?
We finally had to call it a day and made our long way back home. It was a great girls road trip. Spontaneous and free. 2 things we are not normally. But its always good to be what you’re not, even for just a day.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends. Until next week!

Pin It Now!

I am so glad that your car is all fixed up!

My financing went through and the other people's did not so it seems that this is my last weekend with "Dusty". Next week I will have a brand new "Snowwhite". I am excited about the prospect of a new car but also a little on the nervous side.

Have a wonderful weekend and happy birthday month!

that's an amazing story with the warranty. we have only bought one (on a U-Haul car hitch, of all things) but when my car was totaled they replaced it on the new car free of charge. good for G-man!

your hair looks so pretty and flowy on the beach. who doesn't love a cheap day trip?

ps ~ as a mom of three I can appreciate what it takes to get "corporate" approval for time away from work. haha!

I love clam chowder so much, if we ever meet, we should go eat clam chowder. Because my man won't eat it with me.

Glad your truck turned out, yay for extended warranties! Except for when you don't use them, and then boooo.

P.S. God has a plan, you know? Jobs, life, money, heart issues. Stand still and let God move. {{hugs}}
