Out Of This World

How awesome is my outfit!? I absolutely it! I’ve never been a person who wears bright patterns, although I’ve always loved them. Maybe it was because I never had the guts… but lately I’ve been growing into my own and doing what makes me happy. And let me tell you, this outfit makes me super happy! Life is too short to not wear what you want because of fear of what people might say or how you might look. So, go out and do or be what makes you happy!

I got the awesome leggings here & the awesome matching hoodie I got here.

Deep Dish Heaven

A little known fact about Kat & I, we do not eat any dairy! How can this be? Everything has dairy when you grow up Mexican! Cheese! Sour Cream! I know I know! I thought she was crazy too when she told me she didn’t eat it. But, after a few months, I noticed a difference in not eating it; how bloated I was because of the dairy, and how it affected my mood.

Almost four years later- and we still don’t eat it. Once in a while, when it is in desserts or if someone cooks with it, we will have some. But usually it is not in our diet. At first it was very hard, believe me. But after eating like this for years it has gotten easier and actually I’ve learned that there is still plenty of foods I can eat and still enjoy. How else do you think I’ve been able to keep my plump figure? šŸ™‚

One place that we found to be an amazing place for vegan food is Kitchen 17! On Wednesdays they have the deep dish pizza special, and let me tell you it is so delicious that I don’t even feel like I am missing out on Chicago style deep dish! We ordered the fully loaded and I swear I was in food heaven! If you want to see how awesome vegan food can be, go here!

As you can see we basically killed this deep dish, just us two!

& of course I had to try out the awesome veganĀ chocolate brownie! IĀ love trying vegan desserts atĀ restaurants because itĀ reaffirms that vegan doesn’t mean nasty. Yes, both were very yummy!

A Moment for Our Loved Ones

The one sure thing in life is once our journey/mission in this life is fulfilled we transition to the spirit world. We call it death. It comes at times when we least expect, and other times, it happens slowly. Neither way is harder nor easier.

I take this moment to honor all of our loved ones who had passed on this year so far; including Maria who was an amazing cook & Janina who gave the most loving hugs I’ve ever had, both of who were loved mothers and grandma’s, among other things.

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome. – Isaac Asimov

Stage 5 Clinger

You guys ever have days where you just have major separation anxiety issues? Well, I’m having one of those today. I feel so bad for Kat because I know I must be super annoying with all my texts messages requesting attention. LOL 

I can’t help it, I need extra love sometimes. And when I feel like I am not getting my fill,  my inner stage five clinger comes out and there is no stopping her until she’s had her fill of love and attention. Sorry babe. 

Love me!!!

My First Essential Oils Kit

Kat and I have been using essential oils for a few years now. We’ll use a few drops of Lavender in our bath along with epsom salt or use Tea Tree (Melaleuca) for cold sores- which by the way works like magic! Since Kat and I love using essential oils in our lives we decided to team up with our friend, Janie, and doTERRA, and become Wellness Advocates.

The great thing about essential oils is that you can use them and create many different uses for them. To begin our essential oil journey we bought the Emotional Aromatherapy kit. It includes 6 essential oil blends: Peace, Motivate, Cheer, Passion, Forgive, Console. These blends resonated with us most to start with. As mentioned on doTERRA’s website,

Just a few drops of these naturally complex, fragrant blends can elicit profound emotional responses to help you let go of burdens, find comfort and encouragement, or inspire you to dream with passion again“.

Because of this, using essential oils as an aromatherapy technique compliments the energy healing work that Kat does.

The six blends that come in the kit are: Peace a reassuring blend, Motivate an encouraging blend, Cheer– an uplifting blend, Passion an inspiring blend, Forgive a renewing blend, & Console a comforting blend.

To order yours, or any other essential oil/blend you can go on our Essential Oil Shop.
