2010 Summer Blog Tour!

Hello and Welcome to Ramblings By Nicole! First off I’d like to say a great big thank you to Living My Moment and The Work at Home Woman for putting together this amazing blog tour! I’m super excited about being the very first blog on the tour!
There is a reason I got the “top spot” however- life around here is pretty crazy! I’m a Coastie wife and next week we’reย moving from North Carolina to Boston. I’m also 30 weeks pregnant with my second child, a baby boy, who will be joining our family in July! Because of all of this they were so sweet to let me schedule now, before my life becomes super-duper crazy!
My blog is filled with product giveaways, reviews, all things parenting (going through the potty training phase right now as well!), Recipes, my scrap-for-hire business Artistic Albums By Nicole, and–of course–my ramblings! I hope you’ll hop on in and follow along with all the new and exciting changes that are going on in our lives right now! (who doesn’t love Boston and new babies??!!)
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of the tour!

  21. Beth

    Hi Nicole – nice to meet you on the Summer Blog Tour. I grew up in and around Boston and now live on the Seacoast oh NH. We are actually moving to the San Francisco area in July. if you have any questions about the Boston area contact me. Good luck with your move!

  22. Donna Perugini

    Hi, Nicole…I am really late on this blog tour! I didn’t want to miss you, though. You have become one busy girl! Don’t over-do yourself, girl! Moving is one thing, but trying to put everything in it’s place, hang the pictures, unpack boxes, etc. Just do a little at a time. Your baby will never notice if his room isn’t set up perfectly yet, but he’ll know if you’re too tired to just be ‘wonderful you’.

  23. Susieqtpies
