I may have mentioned it previously, but we buy lots of LEGO from CraigsList. It’s how we feed our obsession and play and build the things we want. The only issue with this is sometimes we get too much of one type of brick. Or we get bricks we just wouldn’t use. Not to mention,
Last night, I decided to take The Little Brick to the LEGO store for the monthly store build. This month, it was the cutest mini racing plane. I was *sure* she would love it. I was really impressed with her building skills. She easily and quickly managed to build the model without major intervention from Mr.
We were in the LEGO store last weekend when we ran across the new advent calendars for 2014. Mr. Family Brick and I have been very excited about buying the City advent calendar, since we’re working on a Christmas village for under the tree. Last year we decided to skip buying any of them all together… and
Because everyone likes to know who’s reading their blog posts, I troll the referrers list in my blog stats. Last night while quickly checking, I found my planetary exploration post was referenced in a feminist argument on the EuroBricks forum. I’m not so much concerned about the gender battleground issue, but I won’t lie that I do like
I’m always looking for a good deal on LEGO sets, although I rarely buy something unless it’s at the local LEGO store. However, I was doing a little bit of birthday shopping for Mr. The Family Brick and found the following three sets on sale for $4.95 at Amazon: LEGO Creator Red Thunder LEGO Creator
I love getting responses back from LEGO builders when I comment on their work. Seeing that they care about their fan base and supporters is pretty awesome. The other day when I mentioned the LEGO Ideas Planetary Exploration set, I went to add my support for the build and left the builder the following comment:
We’ve been wanting to build the LEGO Creator Green Grocer for quite some time now. However, it is a discontinued set and as most of you know, a discontinued set increases in price the older it gets in the LEGO world. We’ve found the LEGO Creator Green Grocer on Amazon for $999. We’ve also found the LEGO

I’m not sure if anyone really ran across this article a week or two ago, but the Consumerist wrote about a mom who left her kid at her local LEGO store for 90 minutes while she went shopping… LEGO stores are fun and amazing places for children, collectors, and for human beings in general. However, there
Last weekend, we made a quick visit to our local LEGO store. We’re in the middle of trying to build the LEGO Creator Green Grocer, but not having much success. Once we went through our stash of LEGO, we only had about 33% of what we needed to complete the build. Then trying to
Hot on the heels of the LEGO Research Institute on Shop@Home comes a new LEGO Ideas set titled Planetary Exploration that is gathering a ton of support! I’m in love with the set already, featuring a female scientist/explorer/astronaut, a hover lab, rock formation and an alien! This set is awesome. Tons of fun things to play
Let’s be honest here… LEGO is expensive and I was hoping if I wrote about LEGO on a blog just about LEGO, I could use affiliate links to bring in a little bit of income to purchase more LEGO sets. This blog is to enable my LEGO habit. However… I failed to read the LEGO affiliate program terms
My 41st birthday. The first year I finally had to check the second to last age box. The year I can officially stop denying I’m getting old. Except I don’t want to get old. (Who does, really?) So, I’m always happy when my husband gets me presents that make me feel young… like LEGO. As
