Our 1st Family Portraits… FINALLY!

I think there should just be an unspoken rule that I’m going to be late to everything because I’m 1) a mom and 2) can’t seem to get anywhere or do anything on time for a wide range reasons/excuses. These portraits for example. I’ve had them since March 2018. It’s now February 2019… Yeah, I’m late… Very late. I’m so… Read more →

Our First Family Vacation

It’s been almost 3 months since our first family vacation and I’m still smitten about it. Lil Bean got a chance to meet so many Disney characters. My parents and D’s parents got their first taste of Disney World. And D and I made some wonderful memories with our baby girl. It was magical and I can’t wait to go… Read more →

9 Months of Lil Bean

Where is my newborn!? Our tiny Lil Bean is 9 months old now. D and I are in the beginning stages of planning her 1st birthday. Every time I think about it, the more and more I yearn for those first few days. Why? She was sleeping all the time, so I had time to do things! She was content… Read more →

Cherry Blossom Season

I really like being able to experience seasons. Back in California we got a dry season and a rainy season. Pretty much all we ever get. But living in DC I’ve been able to watch the leaves turn bright yellow and red, the first snowflake fall, and the tiny buds bloom into beautiful blossoms. I think of all the seasons,… Read more →

D’s Dirty 30

I’ve know D since he was 9 years old. We both were goofy looking, with huge glasses, and awkward gaps in our mouths. Fast forward 21 years and D’s my partner in crime. We’ve also outgrown our goofy looks, huge glasses, and awkward gaps in our mouths! Thank goodness. Haha. For his 30th birthday, D wanted to take a little… Read more →

Bahama mama

I wish I was sipping on one right now. Ah, a delicious Bahama mama. A few weeks ago I posted about our recent decision to visit the Bahamas in January. It was a bit spontaneous considering we didn’t officially know we were going until a few weeks prior to the trip. But again, that’s how we like to roll. (Sometimes… Read more →

When you wish upon a star…

… your dreams come true. Well, maybe… I think I’ve already shared how much I love Disney. I love Disneyland. I love Disney World. I love Pixar movies. I simply love Disney. Something about that company – it makes you believe in fairy tales and happily ever after. It’s silly, but sometimes you need to revert back to an age… Read more →

Great Falls Park

D and I recently took a few day trips out of DC. You know, get out of town to clear the mind and do something good for the soul. One of the last times, we ventured out to Great Falls Park in Virginia. And you guys, it’s gorgeous out there! **I should preface that the day trips have become more… Read more →

Another Vegas Trip

Hey friends and fam. If you were following me on instagram (@mari_delosreyes), you may have noticed that I was in Vegas… AGAIN!!! D and I were in Vegas last weekend to celebrate a friend’s Dirty Thirty. We went club hopping, saw LOVE, ate some pizza, toured a cactus garden, bought some cigars, relaxed by the pool, had a spa date,… Read more →

Clean Eating

One of my coworkers the other day asked me what was for dinner. I laughed and shrugged at her. For almost a year, I’ve been using Instagram to post photos of my food. More precisely, my dinner. My infamous line, “It’s what’s for #dinner” has become my tagline. As my posts continued, my ever-changing cooking and eating preferences also continued.… Read more →
