Hey! I am Nicole and that hunky silver frosted man is my husband, Jon. We have been married for 12 years! We were married before Pinterest (gasp) in our little country church. I married my best friend! He is so patient with me and I learn so much from him!
That beautiful little blonde is my daughter, Emerson. We were blessed with adopting her 5 years ago! She is the light of our lives and she is my constant reminder that God provides.
I am a nerdy stay-at-home mama who loves dabbling in lots of things! Home design & decor., home renovations, DIY, art, books, dogs, organizing, homesteading, God, HGTV’s Fixer Upper, coaching volleyball, antique shopping, fashion, becoming debt free, cooking, essential oils, running, fitness & probably more stuff I haven’t discovered yet. Oh! Coffee, tea and the Trim Healthy Mama Good Girl Moonshine is a daily part of my life! If you made it through that list….kudos to you for sticking it out! We can now be best friends! Yay! Speaking of friends…I have the most precious friends and am SO thankful for them!
We have two adorable pups. Lulu is our youngest fur child. We have had her for just over a year and she has brought so much fuzzy joy to us! She is our white fluffy, snugly Schnoodle. Molly is our seven year old Mini Goldendoodle. She is a goofball and loves to do the most mischievous things. Look at her little brown nose awww!
What made me decide to start a blog?! Let me tell ya……
After renovating two homes with lots of budget DIY’s…I finally grew enough confidence in my creative abilities! Mostly though….we want to share our “not so pretty” stories. Our DIY fails are pretty hilarious! I want to share our journey with hard stuff like infertility, open adoption , adoption losses, becoming debt free & the fun stuff like beauty, fashion, food and really anything else that heads our way.
What makes me the MOST giddy though is everything home design and DIY. We both love beautiful transformations and are in our third house that is needing some love! Stick around to follow our newest adventures in making a beautiful home, on a modest budget!
On the outside, we are a typical little family….keep reading and you will find out we are anything but normal! We love to step out of the box….we thrive on keeping it fresh and following where God leads!
