Fantastic Lego Ideas for Your Kiddo’s Bedroom!

Did you play with any fantastic Lego toys growing up? I did, but they weren’t nearly as big of a deal then as they are now! I mean, my goodness – not 45 minutes away from my house there’s a theme park called Legoland!

Here are some fun facts about Legos for ya:

There are 2,200 different elements of Legos (or types of pieces)
Approximately 19 BILLION Lego elements are manufactured each year, or, 2 million per hour, or, 36,000 per minute
Lego elements come in 55 different colors
Lego bricks are made in Billund, Denmark

Fantastic Lego Ideas

Interesting, eh? I know a LOT of kids who are VERY interested in Legos these days, and I’m sure mine will be soon enough, so when Jenny from Terry’s Fabrics contacted me with an infographic full of ideas on how to turn a kid’s bedroom into something magically Lego-themed, I figured you all would want to see this!

Making Memories: 6 Beautiful and Family-Friendly Backyard Ideas!

The twins are now 7 months old, and I FINALLY feel like I’m getting control of my house again! I mean, MERCY! I knew I’d be off my game for a while, but I didn’t realize it would be for THIS LONG! Don’t get me wrong – they are SO worth being off my game for! Nonetheless, I’m thrilled to be back on track.

Inside, that is. I’m back on track on the INSIDE of the house.

Every time I drive up to our house I see a million things I need to handle. Does anyone else do that, or is it just me? And that’s just in the front!

When I look at the back yard, I’m completely overwhelmed. 

We have a very large back yard, for which I am so grateful. It’s nicely fenced with a pretty white privacy fence, and we even have a few things like a pineapple bed, a garden, and several different spots in which to sit – a picnic table by the garden, a screened-in porch and a brick patio. 

But my mind has been turning with ways we can make it kid-friendly, since, before I know it, the girls will be running around out there! (Already one of their most favorite activities is to be outside rolling around on a blanket!)

So when blogger Chloe Taylor contacted me with just that, a post of family-friendly backyard ideas, I knew it was fate! And when it comes to ideas, Chloe has some awesome ones!

Kids absolutely love spending time outdoors; running around and exploring the world. But what if you simply can’t find the time to organize family walks or visits to the playground? Well, what better way to satisfy your kids’ curiosity and adventurous spirit than your own backyard? Of course, the key is in creating a fun and an enticing place for your family, so that kids can play to their heart’s content and stay safe. Play at a young age is a child’s process of learning, which is why you should seriously consider the following ideas for your own family-friendly backyard.

The living room is called the living room for a reason. It’s that part of your home where you can just sit back and enjoy comfortable hours of leisure time with your friends and family. You can watch long hours of television on a snowy day even take a nap every day for some time.

It’s Time for Fall…Inside our Home!

A million thanks to At Home, for partnering with all of us on this Fall Home Tour! #myreason

You may have heard me say that Fall is my favorite. Well, it’s true. I LOVE FALL. But, if there is one downfall of living in Florida, it’s that Fall is pretty hard to come by. I mean, seriously. It’s the beginning of October, and our highs are still in the 90’s. Yeah. 

So, when it comes to my love for Fall, I have to make the season change INSIDE my house. That’s #myreason for doing all this Fall decorating! When the calendar proclaims it Fall, I start baking all things pumpkin. I change my candles and soaps to Fall scents. Hey, I would even crank our air conditioner down if my husband would let me! 

So, if you wanna see, do come along with me for a tour of Fall…inside our home!

First of all, welcome to our home!
