Bling-bling purse/diaper bag

I have been on a personal search for a bag that can function as both a purse and diaperbag. Currently, I am using a black Nine West Hobo Tote and it works well, but I want something summery, durable, with a bling-bling, a little sparkle action going on. It has to be versatile and able to survive a little spilled milk.

Any suggestions?

Building Little Einsteins

I don't remember educational television being so high-tech. On Playhouse Disney, a block of hours on the Disney Channel dedicated to pre-schoolers, there is one show that I adore - Little Einsteins. It is a liberal arts education stripped down to its raw elements in a fun way for pre-schoolers (and the people that love them too), minus the scary puppets that some shows use.

Sleep Deprived and Loopy

Waking up at 3am, 5am and 7am to big brown eyes and a just barely toothless smile is making life very interesting. I'm finding an odd pleasure in the wee hours of the morning. It's amazing what you can see while the rest of the world sleeps. I find that my own schedule is rotating, in a manner of speaking. In my late night adventures, I have found some really neat sites that you might enjoy.

Every Mommy loves a summer sale!

Have been searching for precious, unique baby fashions that you won't see on every baby on the that passes by? Have you ever wanted to bring the baby gift that gets oohs and aahs? Well, here's is your chance. Cosmo-Tots in Clarendon is having a summer sale! (Read fabulous, high quality products at an equally fabulous price.) It's the perfect time to try something new and be sure to check out their website,

Loving Glen Echo Park

There are so many free and educational events in the DC area that it would take me hours to list all the cool ones, but some thing fun and easy to do is to visit the Smithsonians on the Mall or one of the smaller less-touristy one of the sites ran by the National Park Service, one of particular interest is Maryland's Glen Echo Park. It is a fabulous, old-style amusement park with a working carousel. It is really like taking a slice of good-ole fashion apple-pie and a slice of cheddar cheese on it.

1,2,3 Supermom to the rescue

With a rapidly growing 5 month old, a husband, household responsibilities and other things to consider, sometimes the best thing you can do is just take a 7 minute breather to get your head, thoughts, the to-do list and attitude in order. I have found The Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Scovel Shinn,, an excellent tool at helping me do just that, figure out the game, tap into my inate power, recharge and return to my current role of Supermom to the rescue.

A fun site - Take the Daily Stroll

I love this site. It's fun, a quick read and always provides fun trends to enjoy. Check them out on

Sunny babies

As summer creeps in and the temperature (and here- humidity rises), I'm always on the lookout for cute headgear and beach worthy-wear. For Z, I've found a cute little bucket sun hat with ties at my local Target made by Wee Wave. It is precious. They have several colors and patterns for boys and girls. I chose a bright pink bucket to match her already heavily-pink wardrobe. Now, I'm on the search for another and I think I may have found her next hat at One Step Ahead, They have lots of colors and sizes. This is the picture from their site.

Calling DC Area Moms

Welcome to Capitol Moms!!!!

I am excited to introduce a new place for Moms in the DC area to meet, be social and enjoy some of the perks of motherhood.

As a new mom, to a beautful baby girl, I have been searching for a way be social, meet other moms, get-out-and-about and enjoy some of the goodies that I enjoyed pre-baby in a way that is mom and baby friendly.

Suprisingly, in an area so rich and full of amusement for all, it has been pretty hard to find what I've been looking for and thus the birth of Capitol Moms.

There will be randomness, chit-chat, trend-spotting, lots of variety and fun to be had. There will be events, a couple of times a month, to get you out of the house and mingling in a place where you and your child are welcome and sure to have a good time.

Welcome to Capitol Moms.
