A little about myself…
I am a wife and a stay at home mom of two beautiful daughters. I decided to start this blog as a way for moms like myself to find ideas and tidbits in one area. It’s sort of that stuff no one ever tells you about, like how to get free ice cream at Chick-Fil-A or how to visit some of the best museums in the country for free or did you know you can just buy the McDonald’s Happy Meal toys, you don’t have to buy the Happy Meal . These are things I stumbled upon by accident or learned from other moms like myself.
I also love to plan my kids birthday parties. I think it is fun to take a theme and build upon it. I like the challenge of making the cake, and having everything “go” together, from the invitations, to the decorations, to the food and favors, I want their parties to reflect who they are. Don’t get me wrong, many 1 stop party places are great and are perfect for on the go families or those who just don’t want to have to worry about anything. My daughters love those places, but they just weren’t personal enough for me. I found myself scurrying the web looking for ideas, or going to parties and taking pictures and saving ideas that I liked for future use. I had no place to showcase those ideas or parties. So my goal for Things4Moms is to be a 1 Stop Online Idea Shop 4 Moms.
All the ideas may not be mine directly, but they’ll be ideas I love or that my 4 or 1-year-old loves or would love. Along the way I’ll probably stumble upon something that’s just fun and has nothing to with party planning or going or getting something for free, but I’ll have fun sharing it.
