I am being provided with complimentary tickets to LEGO® KIDSFEST. All opinions are my own.

Over the last year, my boys have seemed to collect more LEGO bricks than I ever could imagine. Since they are only 3, 4, & 5, I know that collection will continue to grow for years and years to come. I don’t mind though. My husband built a custom table for them to play on and we have plenty of LEGO brick storage.

While the bricks allow for endless creativity and fun, we also use them for adding, color sorting activities, and more.

That’s why I was thrilled with I learned that LEGO KidsFest is FINALLY coming to St. Louis!

We are down to just under two weeks until the big football game…. who’s excited?!? I know we are, because it’s a great reason to get friends and family together and eat amazing food. It’s time to get out the decorations, cupcakes, and delicious game time snacks for a fun Sunday tradition!

Goals are important to me. Goals of all shapes and sizes. Yes, I love having big goals, but at times, they can be a little overwhelming. Then there are the little ones. The ones that are just baby steps leading to a larger goal. More often than not, they are even more important.

Over the past year, I discovered that I really wanted to start running again. Not only is the exercise great, but for me, it is a huge stress-reliever. No matter how exhausted I am after a run, I feel great. No matter how much pain I may be in or out of breathe I am, it was worth it. As I get back into it, I have found a few things that help me stay motivated and keep pushing me.

Happy New Year!

New Year - New Look - New Goals

I know I haven’t really been around much over the last week or so. However, I have been working behind the scenes giving Nifty Mom some updates and a whole new look. I am excited to finally make the changes live!!

Most of the other things won’t change, but you will be seeing more recipes in 2015, as well as more DIY/craft posts. Since home organization is something I love, I am also working on bringing more articles and tips for the home. If there is anything you would love to see, please let me know!

Here’s to a magnificent 2015!

Going into the new year there are many things that are always on my list to revisit. I try to stay on top of my tasks for around the house, but days get busy and those things get pushed down the list. One of those things, which I actually enjoy doing, is home organization.
