Managed to get a picture of the sunset a few days ago. The sky was so beautiful ☀️
First Week of June!
Summer is upon us and this first week of June I’ve been on the search for the perfect fruit cup. Fruit cups aren’t only healthy for you but they’re delicious and simple to make. It doesn’t take longer than 15 minutes, and you can add whatever you like! Here are three simple steps in making my fruit cup:
Summer Fruit Cup
What you’ll need!
- Chamoy Sauce
- Knife and a fork
- Cutting board
- Any other fruit you want
Pick whatever fruit you would like in your Summer Fruit Cup. Cut the watermelon and pineapple into strips and slice the rest of the fruit. Store the leftovers in the fridge to keep them cool and fresh.
Place the fruit strips along the inside of the cup. You can do this however you would like. Then take the diced up fruit, for my case the strawberries and pears and put them in the center.
The final step. Sprinkle Tajin throughout and add some Chamoy sauce to get that sweet yet savory flavor with a little kick. Grab a napkin and a fork. Find a comfy spot and relax!
This tasty treat is healthy and delicious. It’s almost like you could eat this every day for Summer! This is simple to make, can be made in less than 15 minutes and there’ll be leftovers for more! Have fun trying out something new. Enjoy this sweet treat and have a refreshing start to summer. Take a break from the Khaos 💚

Today marks the one, the only STAR WARS DAY! I love how fun this day is. Last year my family and I visited Disneyland and managed to get inside the Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Let me tell you, it is amazing and so much fun! We enjoyed not only the park but the delicious and quirky drinks the Cantina had to offer.
Spent a little time on the darkside.
I cant wait to be able to plan another trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth! 💓 Enjoy your day lovelies and remember, the Force is within!
Some otherworldly food and drinks.
Yours truly. If you can’t tell I am beyond excited!

Day Trip to Richmond, 2018
I know this is a trying time for everyone. I saw this today in the barracks and I felt that everyone should see this. Keep pushing yourself even if you’re stuck at home. We will get out of this.
When the weekends come up, we all automatically go into adventurer exploration mode. During the week we focus on our school, our studies and our duties that we have to do in the military. This past weekend though we explored a little bit more of San Antonio. The weekend of February 22nd-23rd was also Mardi Gras which we had completely forgotten about. Who knew The Riverwalk could get down and party? Well that weekend we explored some new yummy food venues and actually walked around the Riverwalk.
San Antonio is known for its history. The city has The Alamo, the Riverwalk through the city, Market Square and so much more. The Riverwalk is also named Paseo del Rio and is known for its shops, restaurants and lights that line the winding river through the city. You can enjoy the river any time of the year and either in the day or in the evening.
Found an empty spot for a photo.
One of the many stairways that lead back up to street level.
During festivals on the Riverwalk, be aware that it becomes extremely busy. Even though there are many restaurants that line the river there will be a wait. Don’t let that deter you from visiting though, it is definitely a must see.
Treats of the Weekend
When you go out to a new city I think it is always fun to try out new places that you never have been to before. So none of the same chain restaurants or anything, be adventurous. We managed to find a few good spots to try. For breakfast our first stop was a place called First Watch. It was delicious, everything was healthy and delicious. The portions were well sized and they had fresh squeezed orange juice which is always a favorite of mine. They have many healthy options and also have vegetarian and vegan options available.
After having a breakfast/brunch we walked about the city, did some errands and then came across a frozen yogurt place. We had all been craving something sweet and knew we had to try this place out. It was called Orange Leaf. Its similar to my frozen yogurt place i’m used to called Sweet Frog back in Virginia, so I had to see if this place was worth it. It was. This little sweet treat shop was adorable. From its art on its wall to the different flavors of frozen yogurt! We were all glad we stumbled upon it. It even had a map of where their visitors had come from. I of course joined and added my pin to California.
Last but not least, dinner was amazing. We happened by this place because the restaurant we originally wanted had a two hour wait! We were not going to wait that long…ever. So we walked around and found a restaurant called Kona Grill. It was FANTASTIC. The menu was diverse so it fit all our cravings. The prices were decent and the service phenomenal. Everything we ordered came out delicious and we can not wait to go back.
This was one of many weekends that I am able to explore. I can’t wait to see what else Texas has to offer! Here is to more adventures, more food to eat and more memories to make!

Sometimes all you can do is look to the sky and revel. Think about the vastness of it all. Sometimes all you should do is pause, and cloud watch. Let the calming sensation flow into your soul.

Start Off Positively
This year, 2020 has 366 days of opportunity for you. That means 366 days to plan new goals, put them in motion and try your hardest to achieve them. Start off on the right foot. Take all your excitement and energy and channel it into something positive you want to do for yourself. These could be New Years Resolutions you may have made. If you have no idea where to start, have no fear, I have a few that may peak your interest below.
- Get more organized!
- Eat healthier! Start off slow by just doing healthy breakfasts.
- Try Yoga to strengthen your soul and mind.
- Have new workouts at your fingertips.
- Keep track of your finances.
This is just a small glimpse into your adventure ahead of you. Start off slow, and try not to overwhelm yourself. Compile new ideas and resolutions. Do ones that matter to you, not ones that can stress you out. This is about growing, happiness and achieving new things. I hope some of these ideas will spark a flame inside of you or make you remember why you can continue on with your adventure. Show yourself what you are truly capable of, nobody writes your adventure except yourself.
“In the New Year, never forget to thank your past years because they enabled you to reach today! Without the stairs of the past, you cannot arrive at the future!”
