Big Announcements, New Projects and a Little Secret

The holidays are here! Can you believe it?

And to thank you all for your support these past couple of months, I would just like to say...

THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart! I never expected anyone to read this crazy little blog but apparently I was wrong. We have created great friendships and I hope that as time goes by we will continue to support each other and see our children grow.

The dirty little secret I want to share with you is... my name. I will continue to refer to myself as Sophia's Mom on this blog but I think that we know each other well enough now that I can disclose it. Just don't tell anyone!

My name is...


Hi! Nice to meet you!

And last but not least, the reason I have been slacking on visiting your blogs. I have been busy with a little projects, after all, I am the Wannabe WAHM.

I have an Architecture degree from Columbia University and a love for all things baby. I have decided to combine these to things and launch a nursery design on a budget site: Chic & Cheap Nursery.

If you have a moment, I would appreciate it if you stopped by. I am still uploading content as we speak but any suggestions, comments and ideas would be appreciated.

If you like the site, please sign up for email updates or follow us on Twitter!


  1. You know what's so funny, I was thinking about that the other day. I don't know your first name! So nice to meet you Nicole! ;)

    And your new business? Hello, can you say AMAZING? As a Columbia graduate myself, I know what it takes to earn a degree, so you are totally going to rock this thing sister!!! Congrats and best of luck!

    SO glad to have "met" you. Have a wonderful holiday!

  2. I love the idea. I'll sign up for email updates for sure! :) Nice to meet you Nicole! :)

  3. Holy crap, I had resigned myself to knowing you as Sophia's Mom, Nicole! Even though everyone else gets to "meet" you too, I do feel like I'm in on a big secret! Does that show how lame my day has been that this has been the most exciting thing that has happened?

    Your new site is, as I suspected, gorgeous. So amazingly professional-looking that I can't believe you designed it yourself (of course I can, you're THAT good. But still). I wish you had started it before I had kids, but that's just one little thing to be picky about.

    Happy Holidays!

  4. You girls are exactly the people I am refering to on this post! You girls keep me togther! It's true!!!

    And while I would love to claim credit for the design of the Chic&Cheap Nursery, I cannot. I like to think I helped a little but it was all Susie from Zee Studio!

  5. Holy cow! It's so nice to meet you, Nicole and Good luck with your new venture! I'm off to check it out. :)

    Your new site looks amazing! Too bad I won't ever, ever, ever, ever be pregnant ever, ever again, but I will tell all of my knocked up friends about it...

  13. Nice to meet you Nicole!! Your site is awesome! I wish you the best of luck. I know how it is to start a new business since I did about 1.5 years ago. My next adventure: making my own website!!!

  16. Thanks for all the well wishes my bloggy friends!!!

  17. Nicole! I'm off to check out your new project. I already think it's a brilliant idea.

  18. Ahhhh how I WISH I lived in NYC! Love love love the city! We're a little to the north, near Albany.

    I feel you on the debt issue. Although I didn't go Ivy League, I'm in graduate school right now and racking up up student loan $$ like it's my job. Ohhhh well, what are you going to do? :)

    Love your blog-especially your new Chic and Cheap Nursery site. So pretty! Great to meet you!

  19. Hi Nicole! Nice to meet you as well. I have been following your blog for a month or so now and have never left a comment. But I just love your blog. I can TOTALLY relate to you. And now that I finally have my blog somewhat up and running I thought I would say hi. Not sure why i thought i needed a blog to comment on other blogs but anyway. Great job on the new venture. Your new site looks great! Good luck.

  20. HEY THERE NICOLE!!! Nice to meet you! I must admit I have often wondered what your first name was especially when I wanted to address you in a post or email, now I know. Now I just have to adjust in my head that 'Sophia's mom' is 'Nicole' Lol.
    Best of luck on the new venture I am sure it will be a great success.

    Have a Happy Holiday!!!
