What’s up love bugs! My grandma used to call me “hita” and “mija,” “punkin,” and “little hot dog.” She was, and to this day remains, the coolest person I’ve ever known. She would share her Double Bubble with me as a little girl and taught the monumental lesson of blowing bubbles with said Double Bubble. […]

Boozy Pancake Brunch

The Pioneer Woman is my hero. My best friend and I frequently obsess over her ridiculously delicious recipes, her show, her giveaways, her lifestyle, and her all-encapsulating awesomeness. Brunch is also quite high in my list of favorites – who doesn’t love brunch? You can see why I was overjoyed, then, when I was gifted […]

Mama’s Humbled Heart

I Just Put Jesus Christ Superstar On for My Toddler

I just put Jesus Christ Superstar on for my 21 month old. I’m three weeks postpartum and recovering from an emergency c-section and needless to say, it’s been a challenge keeping up with my 21 month old son. This magnificent specimen of toddler is, to say the least, an incredibly spirited child. On one hand, […]
