7 Spots to Visit on Veterans Day in Washington, DC


 We recently went to Washington DC for a daycation. We’ve never been, so it was such an awesome experience. We were able to visit the Washington Monument, Holocaust Museum, White House. 
Washington, DC is home to many of the nation’s best monuments, a number of which celebrate those who served our country. What’s great about these places is that you can go visit them at no cost to you. The entrance is free, except the White House of course. I believe for that you need to put in an application to visit. However, we were able to snap a photo outside of it. 
We were not able to visit all of the monuments that day since it was pretty busy. ( I believe it may always be busy. hehe. the kids were tired since we had to walk everywhere because we parked our car inside a parking garage. The parking is not the best, but Washington, DC is such an amazing city. I fell in love with it. We will be visiting again soon and taking advantage of all of these memorials. 
You too can visit these awesome monuments on Veterans day and any other day. I promise you will leave feeling empowered and just grateful to be an American. I highly recommend for you to make a trip out to Washington DC.

A little update on my life.

Life has been a bit hectic, tiresome to say the least. Having two little ones so close in age has taken its tole on me. Too much to do and so little time or no time to do it. I’ve also been trying to lose weight, which is a challenge of its own, trying to coordinate feedings and work outs around Adryana’s school time is hard work. Not to mention once I’m ready and totally into my work out little Edward gets fussy. Which totally sucks because I’m really into it and well he is a baby ‘what do I expect’?? Right ??  I know, trust me – I get it. It’s just a battle I’ve been having to deal with lately. 

Also, our time here in Texas will be coming to an end. My husband will be transitioning back to ‘Sea Duty’ meaning we will be stationed near the ocean and deployments will be on their way. So, we will slowing get things ready to move. It’s going to happen  within the next 4 months, a bit stressful,  but we gotta roll with the punches. 

Am I the only one that feels, like they just can’t catch a break ??

Through it all, I’ve learned to lean on GOD. I get so caught up in my “wants” that i sometimes don’t  see the bigger picture. GOD opened my eyes and just told me to take it easy. Right now my duties are taking care of our little munchkins, once they get a bit older, I will have more time to myself. For now I need to just deal with it as best as I can. {It’s definitely easier said then done} but I’m really trying. Watching them play and giggle seriously makes everything worth it. Right now its all about the special moments, I’ll have the rest of my life to get fit. For now its me and them. 


PS: Sorry there is no BittyBentos post today, Adryana is grounded which means ‘no bento’. On a good note here is a couple of pics of the boys.

Moraki Cloth Diaper Review


California my home sweet home. It’s also the home to WAHM Charlie CEO of Moraki cloth diapers. Moraki cloth diapers have been the talk of the town. Here is a little background of my life and another reason why I love this WAHM. Moraki  headquarters is actually located 5 minutes away from where I used to live. I lived in La Mesa, California a few years back and enjoyed living there. It’s a very peaceful, quite city in San Diego county. It’s so nice to know that their is cloth diapers being made in a place I know and love. Charlie is also a US Navy military wife which was another reason why we just hit it off so well not to mention the love for cloth diapers. I am super excited to tell you all about the NEW Moraki cloth diaper.

Moraki cloth diapers are a very versitile cloth diaper they are a one size diaper. They can be used as a pocket diaper or an AI2 diaper.

Moraki Facts:

  • Fits babies from 7-40+ lbs
  • 4 rise snap rows
  • PUL outer /PUL tummy panel to prevent wicking.
  • Wing snap to prevent wing droop
  • Pocket Diaper / All In Two
  • 100% polyester lining wicks moisture away from baby not to mentions super soft
  • Envelope pocket opening will agitate in the wash
  • Inserts are sold separately. Made of


Lil Bam Bam’s Stats:

  • 15 months old
  • 24 lbs.
  • Sensitive skin
  • Heavy Wetter at night
  • Average baby size he is not chubby at all, more on the lean (small waited) rapidly growing :)












Charlie sent me the American print one size diaper. I absolutely love this print as you all may know because we are a military fam bam and I love to represent 🙂 I received my Moraki diaper with this beautiful tag along with a cute card no plastic pacakaing or anything like that.  “We aren’t eco-friendly and sustainably conscience because it’s trendy.  We are mindful because it’s important.  That’s why your order is shipped in recycled envelopes and arrives with little to no packing materials (packing slips can be provided upon request).  Our business cards and hang tags are printed on 100% recycled paper using soy and vegetable based inks. You’ll also notice our product packaging is as minimal as possible.” 

It was love at first sight with our Moraki cloth diaper as soon as I seen it I loved it. The craftsmanship of this diaper is amazing, from the stitching to the materials used. I am slowly getting rid of my microfiber inserts and converting to natural fibers. Moraki inserts are sold separately and are made of 55% hemp 45% organic cotton these inserts are ready to use no need to ‘prep’ this is amazing quite honestly sometimes I hate prepping diapers I want them to be ready to use, so inserts being ready to use was a huge plus for me not to mention they are so thirsty these inserts are soft and can hold a lot. The fit is great on bam bam, snaps are easily adjusted to babies size. Which might take a few tries if your new at it, but once you get the hang of it, you should be good to go. The encased elastic is awesome we experienced ‘zero’ leaks during the day time, nap time and overnight with all three (size) inserts inside the pocket. The inner lining is 100% polyester which is very soft and wicks moisture away from baby which I love especially at night. I want my lil bam bam to be comfy at night and I wouldn’t want him feeling wet so this is great. Overall Moraki has become one my favorite diapers, it’s a diaper we reach for every time. I would totally recommend it to my friends and family. It is made in the California, US has two options to choose from pocket or AI2, great fit, natural fiber inserts, eco friendly company and just knowing that I am supporting a family owned company that is also military is great for me. Seriously what more can you ask for? The price for the diaper and inserts included is $ 31 which might sound like a lot for some families but if you take into consideration what your getting it makes it worth it. If you want to save some $$ then buy the shell with extra inserts so that you are able to just change out the inserts and re-use the shell. Lastly did I mention that they offer a 30 day wash and wear return policy, if for some reason you end up not liking it you can return it and receive a full refund (shipping is not-refunded). Again such a great company you buy with confidence.









I love our Moraki cloth diaper so glad to have it in our current stash.
