Welcome to the EX Café Friday 02.03.2017 the_ex_café
Hi Lauralives! The barista has brewed you something EXtra-spectacular to begin day 5.
Thank you Sweet Pati!! It's so beautiful and I appreciate it. Have a wonderful day and great weekend! Lauralives
Thats_it, okay, here's your coffee. It's a special blend of "you can't quit by trying" and "Amsterdam if I'll smoke again." Hope you enjoy.

Yes, yes it does. Good to see you this morning, susan.m TGIHC - Thank God I have coffee!
c2q, you know it! Thanks for opening the café again. I love starting my day taking the daily pledge, saying good morning to mikecity, checking into the café and riding the freedom train. What better foundation could there be for maintaining your quit each day? Have a glorious Friday!
Good morning all and TGIF! Such a great place to be! Have a wonderful day my fabulous friends!
Hi RachelMB! Glad you dropped by this morning. I got you a cinnamon bagel to go with your coffee.
Mortalzeus these look so good they almost didn't make it to your table!
TristanNani that looks like the perfect start to a Friday to me!
Morning and Happy Friday:) Been kinda keeping away from sugar lately, but I could really go for some beignets and an espresso! Enjoy another smoke free day.
Good Morning everyone and TGIF!!!
In desperate need for a cup of very strong coffee with a croissant. (Warmed up of course with butter)
Wishing you all a beautiful smoke free day!
Coffee for me, too, please!
I'm off to work and will put in my 8 hours if my lungs hold out!
A cold front came in yesterday forcing me into a sick day. But I need to work as this is a new position I'm working into.
A lot of absences do not look good!
Every body have a Great Day and Keep them away from your face!
Good Luck today Thomas, hope ya feel better and get some rest this weekend!
Hi Thomas3.20.2010 I hope the nice weather sticks around for you. Sorry to hear you were under the weather because of the weather yesterday. Happy Friday, Friend.
Good morning everybody,
I am already sipping my coffee, have been up since 5:00 am Phoenix time, and one unfortunate thing about working from home is you start as soon as you get up!!! And many times I'd catch myself reading/responding to emails late at night. Oh, well, it is still a benefit, and look at me, I can take a break and spend it with my friends here over a cup of coffee!
Happy Friday all, Thomas take care of your lungs, they barely recovered from the last pneumonia, please protect them while doing your job! Wear a hat and many layers of clothing!
LOL! Happy Friday Daniela-3-11-2016! I thought we might enjoy this revival of Chorus Line that I found on the web on your next break. Let me know.
Good morning Fellow Exers, how's everyone doing this morning? Are you ready for the wk end and have you got the format all figured out, I'm doing A ok, I'm definitely ready for the wk end and I believe that I am liking this platform and I definitely like being able to post pics, let's be sure to be EXtra Vigilant especially with the wk end upon us because our quits are priceless and needs to remain our # 1 priority.I'm done preaching now! Where's the waiter? Because I need a coffee and a side order of whole wheat toast please & thank you.....
Happy Friday Marilyn.H.July.14.14. The waiter asked me to drop this off.
Thank you very much, I'll be leaving a good tip for the swift service c2q
Gosh, thanks. I hope it is a Marilynism - one of your great quitting tips! Like this one from your post today "Life happens whether we smoke or not," found here. YES for a Smoke Free Life!
I was trying to start a conversation earlier by asking a few questions about the morning and the wk end coming up and how we're all adapting to the platform which I believe we're all doing great, anyway I gotta go for now but thanks for the toast and coffee c2q ,I left a decent tip for the swift service......
Good morning! Stopping in to say hi. Have to go shopping soon for food for superbowl. I love to make different recipes each year. This year its all low carb. Have a great day if i don't make it back on before work.
Hi Shawn! Whatcha making for your superbowl party? Hope you take some pictures to share. My mouth is already watering just thinking about it.
I will definitely take a pic. Anybody cooking on here should post on sunday the food. That would be cool to see. I am making Bacon jalapeno poppers, chili no beans, a dip that has ground meat, salsa, cheese sauce with tortilla chips and pork rinds for me. chicken, not sure if i will put wing sauce on or do a garlic herb.
They are just adorable, thank you, I might come back to visit and see if everybody is full throughout my working day! I am a "mama" by definition, and need to make sure every one eats on time and sufficient to make it through the day :-)
Wholey baloney and give me some of that!
Thanks c2q for the bagel and coffee!
Happy morning everyone! Don't forget to pledge The Daily Pledge February 2017
Hi Everyone I can't stay long just wanted to stop in I quit coffee this week not completely or forever i do like DD iced mocha once in awhile But I am now a morning green tea drinker somehow My taste buds have changed and I like the taste of tea better than coffee ! So some green tea please ?
I am wishing each and everyone of you Ex'ers a great smoke free day get some sun today it will help chase away the winter blues !
BonnieBee.quit.2.8.15, a cuppa green for you. Heck yeah!
Morning, all, I could use a little Expresso to kickstart me this morning. Happy Friday to all...I work every Saturday and Sunday now so somehow, Friday has lost its "magic" for me. Hope everyone has an amazing day and remember to wear red to support heart health for women.
elvan, thank you for reminding us about National Women's Health Day! I've added a link for us to their website. https://www.goredforwomen.org/fight-heart-disease-women-go-red-women-official-site/get-involved/national-wear-red-day/ and their twitter account info GoRedForWomen (@GoRedForWomen) | Twitter
I've got my red on for Women's Heart Health! Help you heart - don't smoke!
good morning all, have a great weekend
Good morning! I see Bonnie is having green tea today and I think I will join her and have some too! Also a bowl of the yummy steel cut oatmeal with some cinnamon, blueberries, bananas and soy milk oh and salt free please.
Woke up to the whiteness of snow and just the perfect amount to cover the ground to make it pretty.
I get to stay home today!! Today I will get the clothes washed, get the house cleaned and cooks up some meals for the week. Going to a pizza place on Sunday for my mom's 88th birthday so will need to go check out their menu and see what better choices I can make for me that doesn't send me off into that addictive food world. That is not a fun place to be. Not one puff of a cigarette and not one bite of addicting foods keeps my life beautiful.
Have yourself a beautiful day! Get some walking in or at least get that body moving today!
Hi tjanddj. I had to step out of the café for a bit. I see that lazy fill-in barista didn't get your order out in a timely manner. How about this healthy pizza for a late afternoon snack instead? It's a Cooking Light recipe - zucchini and cherries with a ricotta base. Maybe it will give you something to compare when you're out checking the pizza menu. Happy birthday to your mom!
Thank you @c2q for dinner and the birthday wishes for my mom. I haven't tried tofu ricotta before I have heard it is pretty good I will give it a try!
Just stopping by to say hi. Have to go grocery shopping.
Every one have a great weekend and being SuperBowl, protect your Quits.
Make a plan of what you could do instead of smoke, like swirling a towel around of the color of your team.
Maybe some poppers!! No smoking
Good Morning, going to have a second cup of coffee now. Looking forward to the weekend! We are heading out for dinner tonight. Enjoy the day everyone!
I don't see enough chocolate here this morning, so I will bring some lunch desserts!
Life is short. Eat dessert first!
I want a bite of each one of those fabulous desserts! LOL
ME TOO! However, since my fabulous quit brought a few unexpected pounds, I will bring these just in case someone besides me is watching their weight (or sugar intake). They are SO good!
Ohhh! I'm going to have to try those, too!
Yummy Russell Stover Chocolates......
My personal favorite! RS and I go waaaaay back.
Trying to stay away from the sugar! however I never say no to coffee!! Have a great weekend everyone!
[hint] what to get your barista on? The maître d is delighted when patrons fill order requests at the EX Café.
And speaking of which, what's everybody's thoughts on running this place?
Thank you so much! I do so enjoy my coffee:) I didn't see any chocolate but I would like that too!
