I contacted the sweet team at Accessory Concierge to let them know that I was going to be featuring their pieces in my Friday Favorites post, and they said they would reinstate the code!

Hi. My name is Sheaffer. And we have like 20,000 Lego pieces at our house.
I have a 6 year old at home, and we’ve bought him wayyyyyyyyyyyy too many Legos over the past 3 years.
He builds the sets, he plays with the sets, and then he ends up taking the sets apart to make his own things. He’s pretty amazing when he’s building on his own, and I love to
see how his little brain works, but OH MY at the mess.
A couple of weekends ago I got a wild hair and decided we should organize all of the Legos by color.
So we did.
I posted this pic on instagram, and was very proud of myself.
It had taken us every bit of 4 hours, and that was working FAST.
I needed a drink. And some sort of sash or trophy.
And then I turned around and saw this.
A big blue draw filled with another thousand some odd Lego pieces.
Still, we persevered, and after Carter shed a couple of tears (I don’t blame him one bit, I wanted to cry myself), we finished!
So…here’s why the Lego organization saga made it to my post…..
because the Legos now look like this.
Organized by color and neatly stacked away in this chest.
After posting this on instagram I now know people are passionate about how Legos need to be sorted (by color, by size, by set, etc….).
I got some great ideas, but sorting them by color is what works for our little guy.
First of all, sorting by set wasn’t even an option. There were probably 20 sets mixed together, so it was never gonna happen.
Sorting by size? Maybe that would work. But I’m afraid that might have sent me into cardiac arrest.
Sorting by color works for us because after the initial build, Carter just uses his imagination to put things together and no longer follows the instructions.
Now, I would like to share what I learned.
Sadly, I didn’t learn this until the 5th hour (after finding the additional blue drawer).
The first 4 hours I would take a handful of Legos, and I would separate them into the boxes…2 blue…3 red…1 white…etc.
THAT WAS DUMB.
It was MUCH quicker to just look at a large grouping of Legos (that had already been taken apart), and then pick them out by color.
I would decide to go for blue. I would pick up all the blue I could see, and then I would move on to a different color. Did I have to go back to get more blues later? Sure I did. But it was still wayyyyy more time efficient to do it this way.
My wish is that at least 1 of you mammas out there would learn from my mistake.
My friends Shay and Andrea hosted a Kindergarten Kick Off Party for our little group of friends that are all heading off to kn in just a few short weeks!

I was doing a major purge and clean-out last week to get the house market ready, and you might have seen me post this pic on instagram (follow me HERE).
Thanks for the chili bowl mom.
But I thought it would be fun to do a side by side of me with the little man.
Yep, I think he’s mine. 🙂
For the record, we also found some awards I received throughout junior high and high school.
And here’s one for you.
I received MOST IMPROVED in choir in 7th grade……
and then in 9th grade.
Chris and I were laughing SO HARD!
I popped into Target last week for a couple of groceries, but I saw this fringe bag, and it spoke to me.
I’m hoping it’s still there for my Target post on the 17th.
I can’t find this exact bag, but I did find THIS one on sale for $8.74.
I couldn’t find this scarf online either, but I really liked the fall colors!
And THESE shoes definitely look like they could have some potential.
I’m worried about the comfort level (I’m afraid they might pinch and or rub where the gathering is), but they might be worth a shot.
I accidentally left it at the ranch house a couple of weeks ago, and when I had to apply my make-up without it (like I had done my entire life up until about 6 weeks ago), I couldn’t stand it!
Not only does the make-up go on so much smoother with this little beauty, but my hands stay much cleaner too!
So anyway, I went and got another one, because I just couldn’t stand waiting to get back to the ranch to get the one I lost. Now I’ve got a spare!
That’s it for today girls!
Remember next week is going to be HUGE!!!!!!!
Come back Monday and help me kick off my birthday week!!!!!!
LOTS of amazing items…..LOTS of fabulous gift card giveaways!
So put on your party pants and let’s do this! 🙂
