The Moving Truck Came! Our Stuff is Here!

For the first time in 7 months, we have a full house. Despite all the lies and disappointments, I have to admit that I was really excited when the moving truck pulled up in front of our house at 8:00 am Tuesday. Sure, it was a month later than we’d originally anticipated, but it did […]


Another Moving Fiasco: Part 4

Today is moving delivery day. Or it was supposed to be. Earlier this month, we decided to have the movers bring our stuff, despite the contract issues and having no idea how we’d pay the balance. I asked how quickly it could get there…Rob said cross-country transit usually takes 3-5 days (which to me is […]


Healthcare Rant: When Quality Care Goes Wrong

As I’ve been dealing with many difficult health issues this past year, the U.S. healthcare reform debate has fallen below the Nicole radar.

When I got to Spanish Fork, the Arctic Circle by the freeway had big banners for peach shakes. Upon each driveby, I was tempted. […]


La Semaine Dernière

Celebrating Mary’s 19th Birthday with Melina and Mary at Boondocks! For the last 3+ years, I’ve lived outside of Utah. When I left, California immediately felt like my home…even though I spent 12 years in Utah and have regularly visited in that time. Michigan certainly didn’t feel like home, and I felt like I was […]


OMG…I’ve gotta go to this…

Would any of you Utah-ites go to this with me if I came out for this concert? I just read about it on Spencer‘s blog. I’m going to the NKOTB concert in March in South Carolina, and this is just right in line with my music tastes of the 1989 era. Now to find tickets […]
