Hi.

I'm Nadine. Thanks for stopping by. The floors are creaky, the kids are loud, but the door's always open and the coffee's always on.

Make yourself at home.

It's Fri-yay! (Jokes. Every day is the same when you have babies.) Wanna read stuff?

The Last Thing Mom Asked (The New York Times)

Heartbreaking.

Pioneer Women Are Roaming the City (The New York Times)

I love Little House On the Prairie. But can I pull off one of these? (Or will I just look like I'm late for an audition?) Always asking the big questions....

The Door is Always Open in This Brooklyn Family Home (Cup of Jo)

This home is LOVELY. 

"What I need, what I need my kids to be raised around, is safe. It’s safe for them to share. It’s safe for them to grow. It’s safe for them to be. I enjoy having people over, and I think a lot of that has to do with a safe space mentality, making a home where people feel comfortable and respected. We do ‘Open House Sundays.’ I’ll tell people my doors will be open from this time to this time so just come! I love having a space for people to have fun and throw it down."

Recipe: Cinnamon and Golden Raisin Bagels (A Beautiful Mess)

I need to make these. Because I LOVE raisin bread. And bagels. And baking. And the kids are on-board with all of the above, too. (Gilbert’s not allowed to bake yet. I have a strict “no bakers under 1” policy. But he can clap when I’m done. That counts.)

Who Will (and Should) Win at the 2018 Emmys (Esquire)

And now you know.

Related: It’s the Emmys on Monday and I want to see this dress. (Or I want someone to buy me this dress. I will wear it to the grocery store.)

Director Paul Feig's Colorful Madison Avenue Apartment Is as Eclectic as His Movie Career (Architectural Digest)

A genius way to get the look you love: buy a fully furnished apartment and change nothing.

“Basically, I said, ‘If I get this, I want them to literally walk away from this apartment. I want them to leave every single thing; from the furniture to the curtains to the books to the plates.’ And they agreed to do that!” 

Speaking of Feig....

From 'Freaks and Geeks' to 'A Simple Favor': Paul Feig's Secret Weapon (The Hollywood Reporter)

"It's always my favorite when Allison calls me up and says, 'I found a real weirdo, you're going to fall in love with this person,'" Feig says. "And she's always right."
