Thankful #4

Because I think this is worth sharing.

" role as a man to not just pursue you through the great valleys and mountains, but to fight for you when you are tempted by a serpent, to be a mirror and reflect the beauty that God created you in, to uphold your dignity and not defame it by watching pornography, to point you back to God instead of to my own desires and pleasures, and to treat you as a subject not an object."

I am thankful for hope. That even with wounds and scars, we still have hope. 

Ahhhhhh meee

Now Playing: All Star by Smash Mouth

Today, I am thankful for friends. Specifically for their letters in the mail.
It's an undeserved gift. Friends are such a blessing! Even when they are miles away, the thought that they thought of you could make anyone know that they are loved.


God Bless friends!

-Ahhhh meeeeee

Cookies bring joy!

In all honesty, this is a very non-serious post.

But thinking about it... a life without cookies would form a very sad world.
Okay...okay, cookies are delicious and I could survive without them.

For the cookie lovers out there, check this out!

The foodie in me wants to let everyone know that these tea bags are incredibily accurate in tasting like a sugar cookie (at least to my taste). 
A foodie that needs to study,

Shots on the run


Running outdoors is a way to see the beauty that God created.

Hear the sound of the birds nearby.

Smell the spring flowers.

Feel the heat from the sun.

Touch the branches surround you. (hehehe)

Taste the energy drink? that you bring along your run.

See the sunset.

Happy Thursday :)
It is almost spring break here and the weather is just a bonus. Inspired by this website that has 54 kinds of healthy smoothies (, I created my own tonight.

I call it the Brown Machine. I know it sounds silly, but it tastes really good!
  • Pitted dates
  • Banana
  • Ice cubes
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Chocolate milk
  • Chia seeds
  • Frozen Kale
  • Lucuma Powder

Today I read a post called: To My Future Wife. I think what made his blog post go viral was the author's perspective of the woman he will someday married, and the value he places for her. A personal and sincere love letter. In a general aspect, he had great points. And to think that we all have a personal love letter written for us, it is so incredible. Grasis Dios por la Biblia <3

Pepper, whom I sometimes call Pimienta might be scare of me...
Con amor,

Sunday Cooking Fun

Thank God for weekends :)

I've found that cooking on Sundays for the upcoming week really helps me save money, time, and get my nutrition. Stress reliever too! Wooooooo.
Watching the Cooking channel at the gym has really inspired me this week.
My goal is to not go to the store until I used the food I already have in my pantry. That is, unless I run out of veggies. :P

Prepping the kitchen.

Olive oil, onion, garlic, other veggies, pepper, cumin, salt, red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, and chicken sausage.

Korean inspired dish (goes w/ rice & seaweed). Veggies, eggs, garlic, sesame seeds, sesame oil, soy sauce, and pepper.

Baked yellow fries and purple seasoned baked potatoes.
Being creative with gf cornbread mix. 
Sweet!!! Espresso, cocoa powder, stevia, choc. chips, and corn bread mix.
Nom Nom Nom,

Stumbling Around

Sometimes, it seems hard to live in faithfulness because the attention is focused on being "successful."


Is it our culture? a habit? the devil?

Stumbling towards humility.

God, help us open our hearts. Help us remember our vocations. On our daily duties, be our compass. Let us never forget that we are not defined by our title, income, gpa, looks, failures, clumsiness, weaknesses, etc. Help us remember that we were made by Your incredible love. To live and do everything out of love, to glorify You. That while we may fail in some tasks, and succeed in others, at the end of the day may we be able to tell You: Father, I offer you everything.
