I recently spent a 'First Sunday' checking out the Louisiana Art & Science Museum with our family and some friends. It was the perfect opportunity to experience the museum for the first time since I wasn't sure how much my son would participate (He's only one!). Every 'First Sunday' of the month the Louisiana Art & Science Museum, U.S.S. Kidd, and LSU Museum of Art provide free and reduced price admission to their facilities. We all had a blast that day and it got me thinking of other activities I can take us to experience throughout downtown Baton Rouge. Even if you don't make it on a 'First Sunday', many of the activities are free or reasonably priced -...
If you saw yesterday's post, then maybe you were inspired to declutter...especially before the influx of gifts this holiday season. Simplifying and "getting rid of stuff" is not always the easiest process, but focusing on the end goals help: a more organized home, sending your things to be used and enjoyed by someone else, or maybe even making some extra cash. This is your guide for what to do with all the STUFF right here in Baton Rouge. If you're not sure where to start with a purge, start small. Look for clothes that no longer fit and toys that aren't age appropriate or don't see much play time.  It's ok if you aren't quite ready to get rid of...

Wow! We can't believe how much this blog has grown and changed over the past 10 months! With the recent addition of five new contributors, we thought it was the perfect time to get some new pictures taken and give the site and our Facebook page a fresh, new look. We are SO glad we worked with Tara Marie Photography to capture these awesome shots and wanted to be sure to show our thanks through this photo update. Tara was absolutely incredible to work with.  She found a way to capture 15 crazy-busy, end-of-the-day tired mommas so beautifully and in the best light.  We love that we were able to represent our team here at Red Stick Moms Blog in...
I love free stuff and I enjoy trying new things. So when I heard about the Baton Rouge Fitness Crawl, I couldn’t contain my excitement! From July 15th -30th, several local, fitness centers opened their doors and offered free classes to those who registered with the crawl.  This opportunity to try unique, specialized classes for free was enough to get me out of my comfort zone. I am an active person, but I am more comfortable running the lakes than walking into a gym or fitness class. Actually I signed up for my first marathon before ever having the nerve to go to a fitness class alone! Crazy, right? The Fit Crawl offered a rare treat to try all...
