One Awesome Momma 1st blog anniversary - woman wearing Express chambray shirt, Cest Ca New York tulle skirt, fuchsia Sam Edelman heels, Tiffany & Co sunglasses, holding a number 1 balloon

When I started thinking about how much I wanted to start blogging over a year ago, I didn’t know what I was going to write about. It wasn’t until one afternoon a couple of months later, completely out of the blue, when it suddenly hit me. I would like to share my love of fashion, the struggles I’ve overcome and how I came out of them as a better person, and the lessons I’ve learned and have been learning as a mom (and as a person). And on that same day, an absolute spontaneity, my blog was born. It started as a hobby – something I did just because I had the time; I didn’t think I was going to enjoy it. But as the days went by, I found myself loving every bit of it; enough that I am actually making time for it; while I’ve been struggling to make time for myself. How ironic is that? I guess that’s how you really know you love what you’re doing! Today, I am celebrating One Awesome Momma’s 1st year blog anniversary!

Kid Motorz Chevy Bel Air 1-Seater 12-Volt Toddler Ride-On Car from buybuy Baby - The best ride on toy for toddlers! Click on the image to learn more. | ride on toys | ride on toys for toddlers | ride on car | ride on cars for toddlers | ride on cars for kids | ride on cars kids | ride on cars for kids toys

This ride-on car was provided by buybuy BABY for free in exchange for my honest review. As always, thoughts and opinions are 100% honest and my own.

Don’t you find it amazing how our babies grow up so fast? And doesn’t it make you wish that you could stop the time? I know I do! I can still remember how tiny my daughter was and how she was so dependent on me and my husband during her first year of life. But now, she has grown into this¬†sweet, thoughtful, and witty girl right before my eyes. She’s always expressing her thoughts, slowly becoming independent, and learning what she likes (and doesn’t like). While I find that fascinating, I can’t help but feel a bit sad because that means we’re one step closer to the time when she won’t need me anymore. I hope that doesn’t happen anytime soon! With her birthday right around the corner, she told us what she wanted for her birthday – A Pink Car (after she saw a girl driving a pink ride-on car one day)! And so the search for the pink¬†toddler ride-on car begun! I actually got overwhelmed with the tons of options available out there. Imagine how thrilled I was to find the perfect pink toddler ride-on car at buybuy BABY?

Mommy and toddlers kids relaxing at Washington Monument in Washington, DC

Since I was younger, holidays would always get me really excited! Back in the Philippines, it seemed as if we have long weekends every single month! How I miss those! My friends and I would always plan to go somewhere each holiday. Before being a mom, my husband and I would choose to just stay at home and relax to enjoy the holidays; and most of the time, I’d be online shopping because of all the great deals! After giving birth to my kids, I guess my adventurous side got awakened; or maybe it gave me the perfect excuse to force my husband outside our house (he loves to stay at home). I found myself planning family trips for every holiday and for every occasion. Last 4th of July weekend, our family visited Washington, DC to enjoy the long weekend. If you have toddlers like I do, this post is perfect for you. Today, I will be sharing what you can do in Washington, DC with your kids.

Taken at the Washington Monument, in Washington, D.C., Lorissa's Kitchen meat snacks filled with protein

As a mom of 2 toddlers, I’m always on the go – be it taking the kids to a farm or a park, play dates, or going out of town; our weekends are mostly spent outside. Kids are kids; they love to explore, climb on top of things, get dirty, and so much more. To make up for the fact that my husband and I work full-time 5 days a week, we take them somewhere fun every weekend to let them do all these things that they love. Being out and about means that I have to make sure our diaper bags are filled with snacks, tons and tons of it. And it’s not just any snacks, I have to make sure the kids’ snacks are always healthy.
