My lil’ Vaca

Hi Darlings! It’s been a phenomenal week and I am going to tell you why! I had a lil’, tiny, mini, much needed, unexpected(!!!!) vacation. It was lovely. I went to South Carolina. It was refreshing and refueling. I was invited to attend an #IAmWoman conference and it was great. I heard so many wonderful…

Why I make bento lunches.

Hi everyone! So, last week I had a lady ask me why I pack Bento bento lunches for my kid. I had been anticipating this question so I chuckled to myself a bit. I gave them my answer and they just said “Oh, ok.” I guess it wasn’t sexy enough for them. It’s quite simple…

Woke up late. Still on time! How, you ask?

Good morning everyone, I am currently sitting in my car. (Ignore that trash by my feet) 🙂 Now, you may be wondering “Why” or “I don’t care that your sitting in your car, Danita” but give me a moment to fill you in. 😉 I went to bed super late last night which translated into…

Routines: Bedtime. The final frontier!

My lover, Pumpkin Soup

One day while roaming the internet I happened upon The Pioneer Woman‘s blog. I immediately fell in love. Its just that simple. I love her blog. Moving on. I made her pumpkin soup and it has since become my lover! This soup feels like a warm, soft blanket, fuzzy socks and comfy clothes on a cold, windy, rainy,…

City life and my men

We took the kids thrifting in NW DC. They found gloves, a down vest and two long sleeve shirts. They were thrilled! After leaving the thrift store we decided to stop by a small organic “bodega” one block away. The kids bought organic grass fed chocolate milk. I snapped these photos on our walk to…

Pack Your Purse!

My mother has always given me the same piece of advice. No matter if I was trying to decide which college to attend, what relationships to end or pursue or if starting a new career would be in my best interest. She has always advised “To thine own self, be true”. I should think of…

Looking through the “Mommy Lens”

Here’s my concern: that you care for God’s flock with all the diligence of a shepherd. Not because you have to, but because you want to please God.
