Hey, thanks for stopping by Crazed Mom. We are Nicole and Brielle – a mother/daughter blogging team. We are both crazed mom’s and aren’t afraid to admit it. Nicole is the mother and has been writing online for 15 + years now. Brielle is the daugher in the duo and has been writing online for about 4+.
Nicole is a mom to five teenagers through young adults. That seems to define her pretty well, even though she has plenty of other titles that go along with that, including but not limited to taxi driver, lawyer, teacher, chef, nurse, therapist and personal assistant (though she’s working on this last one). Yes, she has 5 teenagers. She also has a toddler and a newborn in her care frequently as well as several adopted pseudo children of various ages who may or may not crash at her home on a near nightly basis. It’s crazy around there, but she loves it.
Brielle is a new Millennial mom to one. Carsyn was born February 22, and his first year has been a whirl wind of learning experiences. She lives in a little apartment in the suburbs of St. Louis where she loves to cook, bake, play Xbox and spend countless hours making Carsyn laugh.
Passion for Cooking:
If you get hungry, they have a recipe for that. Both ladies have a passion for eating… okay so it’s not actually eating, it’s cooking and baking and they love sharing recipes they have created, mostly exclusively from scratch. They love working with brands developing recipes for them.
Both ladies might have their hands full with about a million things, but they also have their hands full of the latest and greatest technology. Call it a hobby, call it an addiction, but they absolutely love technology and they are into trying all of it. Nicole comes from a long line of non-techie people (except her dad, who would be proud!) that just don’t get it, but surprise, surprise… the girls share this together and they love the techy, geeky side of life.
Anti Bullying Advocates:
Bullying has got to stop. It is a serious, life changing experience for many and can and will haunt many for a lifetime. It is their mission, as parents, to arm other parents with the necessary tools and information to help their children in the best way. This is a million near and dear to their hearts as they experienced online bullying throughout Brielle’s teenage years. Online bullying is at an all time high, with all the technology at our children’s disposal. They speak loud and clear, often and anywhere, about anti bullying.
St. Louis Moms:
Well, they live in St. Louis, Missouri and they love the city they call home. Nicole was born in Texas and Brielle in Arizona, but both of them grew up in St. Louis and love it. Both ladies have seen this city through the eyes of a child, a teenager, a young adult and now an adult and mother raising children. They blog often about St. Louis topics, including the history, cool places to go with kids and events around town.
Planner & Organizing Junkie
Nicole is the planner and organizing junkie. She has always been slightly obsessed with office supplies. She never really understood why, but now realizes it’s because everything has a purpose and looks pretty when together. That eventually moved over to organizing. She loves to organize her home and find products that make that easier. Take it one step further, and you have her planner addiction. As in, she can’t go anywhere without her planner.
Too Many Interests:
Between the two of them, they have way too many interests to list. Lately DIY projects, home improvement projects, gardening and some interior decorating projects have taken up their afternoons. They both love chocolate, coffee, sushi and photography, though not necessarily in that order. They are instagram addicts, love the friends they have made online, and both spend entirely too much time on the computer each day.
So that’s about it! We are glad you stopped by and can’t wait to get to know you better!
