Hey Friends!

I'm Nicole and it is soo exciting to be here. I have always been a lover of all things girly.  I love blogs.  I have been following, reading, and loving several blogs for a long time.  I never considered having my own until recently, when what felt like the 100th person told me "you really should have a blog," so now here I am.  I'm a 33 year old wife, and stay at home (for now) mother of three.  I am a high school teacher by trade, but am taking some time off to be with my little ones.  After struggling with infertility for 3 years before having children via a gestational surrogate I made a pledge to myself to live life to the fullest and never take things for granted. After talking with friends who have young children I have found that as young moms we all often struggle with figuring out how to transition from our old "self" into our new "self." What I hope to accomplish and share with you in this blog is that your old "self" is still there. I don't plan to post overly styled or unrealistic images of what my daily "momlife" is; however, I do get satisfaction out of being stylish, preparing a great meal, and crafting up like crazy for my kids' birthday parties. I hope to offer tips on fashion, home decor, party planning ( I love a good theme), food, fitness, and all things woman!
