Welcome to I am a Mommy Nerd!

My name is Christi. I am a social influencer and I enjoy writing about my lifestyle, fitness, entertainment and my love of all things Disney. I am a mom of two kids who never let me rest. I enjoy taking pictures and spending time with my family. In addition to this blog, I write for Eat.Lift.Mom.

Did you know that Moms are the most powerful consumer group in the world? Moms are more likely to visit blogs and seek out advice of their friends on Facebook and Twitter. You can view this article from The New York Times called “Harnessing the Power of the Mom Blogger” for further insights on bloggers.

From time to time I will write about family inspired activities or products that I recommend for my family because I am a mom, I have opinions and I like to share them with my readers.
