An Introduction

Hello Northern Mama Readers!

I am absolutely elated, ecstatic, and excited to be joining Angela on her very creative, eclectic blog. It is a trill to be able to share my experiences and to review products with all of you.

As Angela has already mentioned we have been friends for a long time. Our friendship was forged in the Arctic and has endured time and distance from each other, and I hope I don't disappoint her in this venture.

Now, I suppose I should tell you a little bit about myself: I am an American/Canadian Mom of two very active boys. Yes, I have dual American/Canadian Citizenship. I was born in Boston, mass and moved to Canada with my family when I was five years old. I was recently sworn in as a Canadian citizen in Yellowknife, NWT on July 1 2008. It was an amazing experience that I shared with people from 32 different countries!

My boys are 6 and 8 years old, although some days they can act like they are 2 going on 13! They are only 21 months apart and are extremely competitive with each other,which makes me feel like I have a professional job as a referee.

I love to spend all of my free time exercising and following different fad diets and life style changes for healthier living. I enjoy walking, running, following different work-out videos and playing team sports, such as basketball. I told myself I am going to start the "abs for life" 6 week plan starting this Monday!

Well, that covers the basics I guess so...thanks for reading!

Nichole or Niki (as my childhood friends and family call me)
