Life & Lovely Chaos is focused on inspiring women & mothers to embrace their chaos, focus on the beauty of life, and to regain their strength (and sanity) by sharing my own lovely chaos as well as words of encouragement. Through the ups, the downs, and everything in between my goal is to encourage women to lead a happy and fulfilling life while, at the same time, finding balance, whole health, and a unique adventure. I am dedicated to sharing the messy, the crazy, and the beauty of the busy life of a homeschooling, adventure seeking family; as well as creating delicious art from inside the kitchen.

Here I target a wide variety of food; from ethnic cuisines, everyday eats, and sweet treats. Oh, and don’t forget about on the grill! Each recipe is a personal favorite & many have become popular hits with friends and family over the years! I also share some of my authentic Hispanic recipes with mini videos to assist. In our home, food is what brings us together! I strongly believe that food is what bring many together. So you can expect that I share with you some of my favorite, and most delicious, dishes.

Mix this with a side of life from a Professional Aromatherapist, Holistic Health Consultant, and doTERRA Advocate & you have one interesting adventure! I strive to promote the benefits of seeking new places & new adventures along with focusing on what changes & choices can be made to reach a healthier lifestyle. With all of the busy that us women deal with on a day-to-day basis, finding balance is key to a happy and healthy life.

Every day is a blessing filled with chaos and adventure as we prepare our little beauties for life. So it is only fitting that I share with you some of my personal experiences, advice, insight, and journey in hopes that you find the inspiration you need to reach that ideal lifestyle & your goals.

Whether you are looking for a delicious new recipe, are a homeschool family or considering homeschool, interested in holistic health,  looking for a new exciting adventure for your family, or you want a glimpse of the survival of a lovely chaotic life… there is something here for you!

With All Of That Said…

Hello & Welcome!

I’m Nikki. A food loving, homeschool mom to four beautiful monsters and wife to the most amazingly complicated man. Since my husband’s time in service has ended, our family has focused on finding a place to call home. We currently reside in the beautiful mountains of Arizona but our upcoming adventures include becoming a full time traveling family. I am originally from Southern California but am a restless soul seeking a unique adventure.

I am a Professional Aromatherapist & Holistic Health Consultant. I am continuing my education in Complementary Alternative Medicine. I am a DoTerra Wellness advocate because I highly believe in, and have witnessed, the life-changing benefits of quality essential oils.

I firmly believe that to live a wholly healthy life you must find balance & happiness. This includes traveling and exploring the outdoors, pursuing things that make your heart happy, eating right (but knowing when to enjoy your favorites), caring for yourself, and living IN the moment.

(The kids and me on top of The Eye Of God in Big Bear, CA. Nature Studies are our favorite!)

          It is actually quite chaotic in attempting to find a balance between all of the daily duties of being a wife, mother, teacher, caretaker to a disabled Veteran, learning to homestead, & working on projects for our future organization Sweet Treats For Our Heroes, advocating for essential oil & holistic health, and working towards a new business adventure- but that is what makes this new journey so interesting! There is NEVER a dull moment.

Right- Top to Bottom: The kids enjoying nature study & examining creek specimens, Sweet Treats For Heroes visits the Big Bear, CA Sheriff station and delivers a thank you basket to our brave men and women, Watching the sunset with my family in AZ- he’s my rock.)

As you can see, it is no surprise that I often get asked that famous question “How do you do it?”. So here I am sharing with everyone my story and passing on my recipes, tips, & Oh-So Exciting Adventure! All in hopes that you find something to inspire YOU to find & follow your unique adventure.


For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power.
