Avocados from Mexico

If you have followed along with me on Instagram for any time now, you know that I am a big fan of smoothie bowls. I love them! There are so many possibilities when it comes to taste and flavors and there really is no wrong way to make them. These days, I try to pack my bowls with foods that are going to fuel me and help me feel my best. Today, I am teaming up with Avocados From Mexico to share a fresh and nutritious Latin-themed Avocado and Mango Breakfast Bowl. This bowl has all of the latino flavors that I grew up eating as a kid, like mango and guava! It’s also light, bright, and delicious… perfect for the warmer weather that’s headed our way!

I love adding Avocados From Mexico to my breakfast bowls because it adds good fats, good nutrients, a creamy consistency and because they are always fresh and always delicious.

Three tips to healthy skin

One of my 2017 goals was to take better care of my skin. Growing up in a house full of boys, I never paid much attention to the products that I used on my face. I’m now 30 years old, and I’m starting to realize that I no longer have youth on my side and that I have to be more intentional when it comes to taking care of my skin.  Honestly, as a mom of three, it’s easy to not prioritize myself. When I’m able to sneak in a quick shower I sometimes (most of the time) just use soap to wash my face.  Gasp! I know I shouldn’t, but time is scarce. You know what else is scarce? Sleep! I would love to say that getting enough sleep is one of my top 3 steps to healthy skin, but at this point in my life, sleep is just not in the cards for me.

The good news is that we’re into May, and I’m finally feeling on top of my skincare routine which involves daily wash and moisturizing. On top of that, there are a few things that I do to help my skin remain as healthy as possible, and I wanted to share them with you!

I have never experienced spring like I did this past month. I’ve read about the seasons and the change of seasons, but coming from FL where there’s not much alteration in the climate department, it was certainly eye opening.
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to explain what I felt when I saw the first patch of grass change from dry yellow to bright green.  I was overwhelmed with joy.  I saw buds on trees and weeds growing sporadically all waking up and welcoming us to Spring.  I  never thought I would be so happy to see weeds!
And then… the flowers came.  One by one, they graced us with purple, pink, red and orange tones.  I saw tulips bloom for the first time and different shades of green perfectly compliment the bright blue sky. I never realized how much my soul needed color or warmth.
I understand now why poets write about love and the change that takes place within, when winter’s gone. I get it.  You breathe again, you come out of hiding, the birds make their ways back from the south, the smell of soil fills the air and little by little the temperature rises. And here we are, in the thick of Spring thanking God for warmer weather and for allowing us to make it through our first Winter.
Here’s to Spring friends.
Here’s to dinners alfresco, soccer in the back yard, and flowers! All the flowers because I don’t know how I’ll live without those again.
We visited Omaha Zoo last week and here are some pictures of our time there. It was beautiful.

This mama was hanging out with her babe, it was the sweetest thing and so smart of the zookeepers to keep them both behind a fence.  All the kids would have gone crazy trying to pet the baby goat.

She wanted to brush all of the goats and had a blast doing it.

Check out his face friends. He’s so proud to be standing next to that cute little goat.  I’m just glad we had plenty of hand sanitizer.

This is Alex’s sweet mama who visited a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks for reading guys and thank you for always being so kind to me on this space of the internet.
