Motherhood can be incredibly lonely and isolating. Though our ancestors often lived in large extended family units and shared the responsibilities of child-rearing, modern society has told us that good mothers should be able to handle this monumental task on their own. To up the ante even more, 70% of mothers work outside the home. We're SO busy with work, keeping up the house, and extracurriculars that we often forget to prioritize time to cultivate important relationships with our friends. Enter, the Facebook group. While there are many downsides to social media (many many), Facebook groups have been a huge source of connection for moms like me. Some might argue that replacing in-person interaction with social media is a negative...
Raise your hand if your baby daddy is as hard to buy for as mine. I had returned the last two gifts I got for my husband because I got the wrong tool. I didn't realize there were a thousand different drill presses. I refuse to have to return Father's Day! I have done some major research and I am sharing it with you. This is my super simple Father's Day gift guide, broken down into: Louisiana Local, Edible, and Gizmos & Goodies.  Louisiana Local Full disclaimer, some of the gifts in this category are edible. Because, well, Louisiana. All of these have been a winner in this household and support some bomb Louisiana companies. Another disclaimer because I am a...
My birthday is coming up, which makes me feel a bit overwhelmed. I honestly don't give a flip about age; I'm more concerned about how to celebrate and what options are available nearby. With four kids, we're not that interested in (nor can we afford) going away for a long weekend kid-free. So you won't see any of that here. And I'm a bit beyond the big party / clubbing scene (do people still say that?). Instead, here are some options for more grown-up ways to celebrate your birthday around Baton Rouge. Restaurants I love a classic Saturday night out at Superior Grill, where you can combine good food and good music, but I am still such a fan of Ichiban's...
Around town: gifts that give an experience! Christmas has come and gone. Despite my best effort to #konmari, we still have too much stuff! And yet holidays and birthdays continue to roll around. So many people talk about experience gifts versus opening gifts. I have a sister-in-law that is THE BEST at gifting experiences! Every year she’ll ask what membership I think my kids will enjoy this year. And enjoy it they have! So now I keep a running list of experience gifts so when asked, I can toss out some suggestions. I’m here to share all the around town experience gift ideas! Memberships: Knock Knock Museum - For as little as $150 a family of four (two adults and two kids) can...

When looking for a new activity or family outing, I often turn to my family and friends for inspiration. If my fellow moms or best friends suggest it, then it must be good, right? That’s why I put together three things I am loving right now to hopefully introduce something new to you and your family. Red Stick Farmers Market With the cooler weather here, I’m finding our family is spending more and more time outside. One of the ways we love to spend Saturday mornings outside is at the Red Stick Farmers Market. Located downtown on Main Street, this market is home to local farmers selling delicious local produce and meat. From Louisiana strawberries to local grass-fed beef, you can...
Why join a Red Stick Moms Blog Neighborhood group? I wondered this myself when we first moved to Baton Rouge.   About a year and a half ago, my family moved to Baton Rouge. I was trying to meet people and get settled in when one of my friends from out of town asked if I had joined a neighborhood moms group yet. I started looking for one, and right away I found the RSMB neighborhood group on social media. I had already been reading the Red Stick Moms Blog articles online, but it hadn't occurred to me to join a neighborhood group as well. They were having a get together that month, so I nervously ventured out to give it...
Baton Rouge, meaning "Red Stick" in French, is a town full of life, culture and delicious food. Located along the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, Baton Rouge is a welcoming community with abundant French-Creole charm.
