About Me

 Howdy! I’m Niki.

I have a wonderful little girl that I call Toot. She came into our lives butt first in July 2015. Her dad is my spectacular husband, B. I work full-time, mom full-time, and want to sleep full-time.

I started this blog to share my experiences as a new mom and now as a mom of a toddler. I love to share parenting tips and life hacks to help other tired moms save a little bit of their sanity. Toot was born right before about 15 of my friends had their babies, and I’m constantly giving them tips and recommendations.  If you follow my blog, it’s like being part of my mom tribe.

Even though I’m currently obsessed with blogging, I also enjoy doing my nails and watching as much TV as I can. My all time favorite show is The X-Files. I can totally beat you in X-Files and Friends trivia. I’m quite nerdy but I’m also all about that mom life. I love teaching Toot new things and playing with her as much as I can.

Blogging is a huge part of my life right now, and I love the community that comes with it. I have an ongoing How to Blog series with blogging tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way. If you’re interested in starting a blog, check out my guide to start blogging right now! I want to help new bloggers learn the ropes and learn to make money from their blogs.

There’s a new blog post every Monday and Thursday morning. Subscribe to my email list or follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, or Instagram so you don’t miss anything! Bonus: there’s always pictures of Toot on Instagram!


Wondering why I call my daughter Toot? Well here’s the answer.

My amazing husband, B, came up with the concept and drew it out freehand. And my brother-in-law, Brad, digitized it for us.
