Ultimate Blog Party: It’s That Time Again

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

I can’t believe it’s been a year already since I participated in my first Ultimate Blog Party via 5 Minutes for Mom! I had a great time meeting new people across the blogosphere, that I decided to participate again.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m Natasha Nicholes, Chief Everything Officer here at Houseful of Nicholes. I am married to a wonderful man, Mr. Houseful (Shomari) and we have four beautiful children. The cellist (12) the ladybug (4) and the Twizzlers our two year old twins.

My blog has been kind of a melting pot of everything. Finding things to do around Chicago, traveling, reviews of products I love, a little bit of homeschooling, and sewing.

I love new friends, and I love when those friendships actually last longer than the party! Stop on by, and I promise to hit your spot up as well!

Now, let’s PARTY!

    I’ve met so many moms of twins through this party, how fun πŸ™‚ I too talk about a bit of everything on my blog, and I love sewing and we’re homeschooling too.

      Hi Sandra,

      Apparently the twin water was running rampant the year that I had mine, because I tell you, they are EVERYWHERE! It was like a sonic boom happened when everyone was, uh, you know! Sewing is really therapeutic to me (no matter how much I have to take my seam ripper out) and homeschooling is going better than I anticipated. I just need to get the darn posts up! Thanks for stopping by!

    I like how you refer to your blog as “the melting pot” of everything.. Love that expression.

    Your sewing looks dynamite! I’m 25 years old, and I’m still asking my mom to make quilts for me ^_^
