A Sporty Little Christmas - Laura (Mama Lego!)

When I first read Laura's name, I instantly thought of structures such as Buzz and Woody which then made me think of Disney World (which, of course, THEN made me want to go to Orlando!) 

Mama Lego is blogging her life of fitness, parenting and healthy eating over on Be sure to check out her site for some great reads! 

What is your favorite sport?
Chasing my kids?! Haha .. I am a new runner and absolutely love it, and yoga .

What is your favorite race distance and why?
I adore 5K runs .. They're slightly longer than my comfort level and give me lots to work towards!

How long have you been running?
6 wonderfully challenging months! :)

What advice would you give a reader who has never run a race before?
Train properly and keep pushing forward. Whether you think you can or you think you can't: you're right! Just believe in yourself and you will achieve your running goals! And save lots of money for registration fees .. Running races will be an addiction you soon come to love and you'll need every penny! :)

What is your favorite race memory?
Finishing my first ever 5K and crossing the line - right into my husband's arms :)
What are you most thankful for this Holiday Season?
Coffee? (ha!)

My incredibly supportive Team Lego. My kids and my husband are my biggest fans and I am so thankful for their love and encouragement - and also incredibly thankful that they are all healthy :)

Inspirational Quote:
She believed she could, so she DID!

Our Visit to The Little Farm

If you live in the South Florida area and have young children, I recommend filling a car with some friends and family and heading down to Goulds for some fun at "The Little Farm".*
As a mom of young children I'm always searching the web for fun (free or inexpensive) adventures for our family. It was on one of these searches that I found The Little Farm. 
I was skeptical at first because it was 5.00 just to park the car, but... when you've been cooped up in your house with three kids for a few weeks you start to look for opportunities to get out. 
At The Little Farm you will find lots of animals to look at, a cute photo opportunity ($12.00), pumpkins, petting zoo ($4.00), butterfly garden (free), horse and pony rides ($3.00), a play area and food for purchase. According to the website, proceeds from the food and pumpkin purchases during the pumpkin patch event are given to charity.
Our family had a lovely afternoon playing on the farm. We decided not to go inside the…

Tips for taking your Toddlers to the Magic Kingdom - AFTER Bedtime!

Hiya Pals!

In an attempt to capture as many beautiful memories of the days when we traveled through Disney with three toddlers, I have brought my Youtube Channel back to life!

In my most recent vlog, I share several tips on how to have an amazing time in the Magic Kingdom with your toddlers after they are typically in bed. You can find three of the tips listed below.

Tip 1  Make sure children are well rested. Since we live about 5 hours from Walt Disney World, our children are often asleep most of the time we are driving. Since it's next to impossible to get them to go to sleep once we get to our hotel room, we opt for a few hours of fun in the parks. 
Tip 2 Have a plan.  We decided to grab fast passes for the Princesses and Peter Pan because those activities typically have a long line. In order to make the most of our evening, we only did things located inside Fantasy Land. This helped maximise our time inside the parks. 
Tip 3 Utilize the Baby Center!  We always head to the baby c…

MOM HACKS: Postpartum Hair Loss & Regrowth!

Remember when you were pregnant, and everything seemed to glow? 
If you, like me, find yourself sweeping up enormous amounts of hair from you floor, or constantly cleaning your shower drains and vacuum cleaners, fear not. 
You are NOT alone. 
Our hair goes through different cycles. There will be times when your hair is in a state of rest, and then will shed. According to what I've read, when you are not expecting, you loose about 100 hairs a day. However, once you become pregnant, your body slows down the cycles. Thus, keeping those 100 hairs nicely on your head.

Once your beautiful baby is born, and your hormones start to go back to normal... the cycle returns and your hair begins to fall. With all three of my pregnancies, this happened between 3-5 months postpartum. It's quite unfortunate that just about the time I was feeling like a human, and getting the hang of motherhood my hair started falling out.

Now that I've gone through this process three times, I thought I'…
