Breakfast on the Go: Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats are Our Go-To To-Go Meal!
For those who don't know, we work off a pretty simple rotation of meals.  Eating organic, avoiding msg, artificial food-coloring, and most dairy can make our diets seem pretty restrictive.  Most of the time we eat vegan.  A common question I get is, "What do y'all eat???  What do you feed your family?"  This is a family favorite--overnight oats!  It's easy, quick to prepare, and the ingredients can be varied to create different experiences for even picky taste buds!

I Can't Do It All... And That's Okay...

July was such a busy month in our home!  Abraham turned 6 years old, we continued shopping for and found a retail location for our online fabric shop, I finally began accepting help for my cloth diaper business, and I came to the realization that I can't do it all!

Organic Beauty and Care - Comprehensive List

I get a lot of questions about our bath and body regimens.  For years our family has not used things with synthetic preservatives, artificial colors, fluoride, and artificial sweeteners.  Avoiding these things was really challenging in the years past.  We had to make a lot of our own goods.  Though some of our homemade products were great, others fell short of our expectations.

Delicious Slow-cooker Vegan Chili

Happy Tuesday!

I love making chili!  It's so easy, so delicious, and helps me rid my fridge of veggies I need to use up! Win-win-win!  Plus, it's a great meal to put together when Monday hits and the world seems to be filled with chaos!

There are only a few required ingredients:

Paul's Summer/Fall Capsule Wardrobe

Capsule wardrobes are a bit of  an obsession.  Because of my minimalist and sustainable attitude toward fashion, I have been de-facto wearing a capsule wardrobe for years, but only recently did I vow to do the same for my kids.  The most difficult to do this for was my newest son.  Babies need a lot of clothes, right?

Happy Mother's Day!

Today is Mexican Mother's Day.  This is the day I usually celebrate Mother's Day with my mom.  In honor of this day, I wanted to share something for newer moms.

For whatever reason, post-baby bodies are frequently included in my Instagram explore feed. Women sharing how they are working out at a few weeks post delivery and sometimes even bragging that they are back on track after a week. Posting photos of their trim tummies—absent of any evidence that a life had just grown inside their wombs.

Babies and the Kitchen Sink

Today Paul is 16 months old! Today Paul still fits in the kitchen sink for baths, but not forever and not for long. I will miss these days with all of my heart.

Lay or Lie? Why is English So Difficult?

Let sleeping babies lie

"Lay" v.s. "lie"... oh me, oh my.  Seriously, this has to be one of the most confusing word mix-ups in the English language for me.  I always hesitate in using these words because I always know that I am likely going to use them incorrectly.  Most people will not notice, but it just bothers me that I don't understand the rule!

Breastfeeding a Toddler: Why I Continue Past the 12 Month Mark

Paul and me at 1 year and 3 months.
Here I am again.  My fourth earthly baby has reached the one year mark.  It has come so quickly that it feels like he was born a mere blink ago!  Celebrating the completion of the first year of his life comes with many exciting milestones from learning to walk, and increase in communication skills, and for many babies, weaning.
