National Tequila Day!!!

Karma Diem, babies.

Karma Diem, babies.

How exciting to be celebrating our first National Tequila Day with our very good friends at KARMA Tequila!!! We are extremely lucky to have such nice people in creative places. Sponsorship by Kotex while lovely would not be as fun in the Swag Department, you know what we’re saying here?

And it’s equally as wonderful to announce our FIRST EPISODE FROM SEASON 2 is finished and will air this week. Walk the dog, cop a squat, pour the Karma and good things will follow. The very cool, very fun JESSE BRUNE came by to share some sweets and deets. Jesse is a life transformation mastermind; skilled chef, personal trainer and life coach. Jesse is the real deal and more on him soon, we’re sweet on him. Stay tuned and come hungry.

Oh, and just a quick note here. Today also happens to be our dear Marie Pettit’s birthday!! We know, so much Joy in one post today. Wildly exciting!! Marie is our AD, PA, Muse and Production Manager for DIO! She is the fiber in our reader’s digestion, the cream in our coffee. Plus she has the director Chris Gregson’s ear. She got the rest too, by marrying the man. We have a marvelous team and choose to celebrate every step of the way. Much JOY and love to Marie!

Not Hiccup, Jicama!

Hot enough for you?

If that ain’t the strangest thing to say I don’t what is. Oh right, jicama is pretty strange to say. Jicama, sounds like it should be a Club Med destination resort. Jicama, God Bless you the people at the store will say to you. Jicama, Jicama, Jicama goes the magic incantation. Jicama, you so crazy, I think I want to have you for lunch.

And we did! Everyone knows what jicama looks like right? It’s that disgruntled looking root thingy found near the potatoes and onion and not far from the melons. Jicama is from semi tropical to tropical climates. It’s skin is like a thin bark texture, and it’s bark is worse than it’s bite. (I went there). The health values of jicama are wonderful, it being high in vitamin content, antioxidants and low-calorie. It’s also known as Mexican Water Chestnut and Yam Bean. But, I think Jicama is more fun to say. Jicama. Jicama.
