Brittney finds no greater joy than being a mom. She makes crappy cookies, but a pretty mean cake. She tries to be good at everything she does, just so other people don’t have to worry. She doesn’t play any instruments but loves to sing, and can harmonize with almost anyone. She thinks she’s crafty, but she just has lots of crafty stuff that she doesn’t really use. She wants to have lunch with Julie B. Beck, but thinks she would just stare at her in awe and that would be awkward! Her dream calling is Stake Primary Chorister, because then she could just go around and train choristers all the time! She shares her primary sharing time ideas at Primary Singing Time Ideas for Leaders.
Nicole is a (recently) single older mom of 1 adorable daughter, and a blogger at BlessTheirHeartsMom. Her blog is a lot like cooking- a little of this and a little of that, but it all makes the blog better, just like when your Mama or Grandma cook! Nicole posts about books (lots of them), products she loves, crafting (all forms), tales of Louisiana fun/traditions, and of course, cooking! Just like the saying “Bless her/his heart” which she’s heard all her life from her Mom and Southern relatives (yes, there is a Yankee side, sorry Robert E. Lee). She now catches herself saying it. Motherhood does that to you- brings out stuff you thought you’d gotten away from. Nicole hopes you’ll want to sit down and stay awhile, then come back for more! The WELCOME mat is out, some come on in!

“My blog is your everyday, run of the mill, six kids, two dogs, and one husband you-can’t-make-this-stuff-up blog. I run wild with my family, work full time, go to school (come on degree!), and serve in my church callings. I blog because I don’t want to forget a minute of it.”
