woman watching TV Hi! How are you all doing? I'm doing pretty fabulous! Other than the fact that my blog just recently turned 1 and we have an ongoing $250 Nordstrom gift card giveaway (don't forget to enter if you haven't yet), I had updated my blog's logo to convey what my site is really all about. I immediately fell in love with it the moment I saw it! What do you think? This update wouldn't have been possible if not for my dear friend, Haydee Gusler. She also did social media banners to match the new logo! How awesome is she? Her graphic designs are impressive and she also does motion graphics! If you need any graphic work done, she's the right woman for the job!!! Check out all her amazing designs here. Anyway, since this is my first post after celebrating my first blog anniversary, I want it to be about something I love. Today, I will be sharing why This Is us is so relatable for everyone; it doesn't matter if you're a mom, dad, wife, husband, daughter, or son; you'll surely get hooked once you watch it.

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?

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.

Kids' clothes can be expensive especially since you have to get them new ones every 3 months or so (when they're babies) and every 6 months (when they're a little bit older as seasons change); and any practical tips that we can share to each other so we don't have to buy as much clothes would really help, right? Which is why today, I am going to share with you 3 genius hacks to make your...

My daughter used to be scared of water - pool, ocean, anything. Even when I thought she has finally gotten over her fear of water, she really didn't. It wasn't until recently when she started showing interest in playing with water. She would constantly tell me how she wants to swim in any body of water she'd see, even a small puddle of water. How cute, right? We've taken her and my son to an indoor pool near where we live quite a few times during the colder months; and she'd constantly tell me she wants to do it again. So last Memorial Weekend, my husband and I thought it would be perfect to bring the kids to Massanutten Resort.

toddlers wearing Snow White & Star Wars Galactic Cloak Jedi costume from Little Adventures, comfortable, affordable, practical, and washable costumes for kids I adore seeing kids, especially babies, in costumes because they just look so adorable in them. Ever since becoming a mom, I've always been looking forward to Halloween because that means I can dress up my kids in cute costumes. What I didn't like about costumes is that they're so uncomfortable and impractical; not to mention that they're expensive and they get ruined when you wash them. Which is why I've always been an advocate of practical "costumes" that you can wear over and over, like the ones the Inside Out characters have been wearing. But that was until I found out about Little Adventures.

76th & Newbury personalized art for house decoration or gift for any special occasion, family travel map log I adore anything personalized. If you've seen my son's first birthday party, you'll see that I had most of the decorations, even his outfit, personalized. Whenever we'd go home to Manila, I'd have something made that's personalized for my kids if not for our family, like our family hand print on a ceramic plate. I treasure every memory I've made (and yet to make) with my family, and having something personalized captures that perfect moment and ensures that we'd be able to look back years from then and remind us how happy we were or little the kids were at that moment.

My daughter first started showing interest in the potty when she was 18 months. Being the excited mom that I am, I rushed to my nearest Target the first chance I got and purchased this potty. One day, she said she wanted to go to the potty so we just sat her there and she peed on her own. That was pretty exciting for us but we didn’t do anything after that because her school...
