About Me

Hi, I’m Nicole! I’m a newlywed, so I’ve got lots of fun toys to play with in the kitchen thanks to generous relatives and friends. I’ve also got this brand new little family (consisting of my husband and me) that I want to keep healthy and happy and well fed.

I hope this blog becomes, in no particular order:

  • a place where I can share recipes and cooking techniques
  • a place where we can discuss health issues and food policy
  • a place to explore the world of marriage and what it means to be a wife

(Here's a photo of me one week into being a wife, playing with some new stuff.)

About the name: the Pixar movie Up means a lot to us; we used soda cap badges in place of corsages and boutonnieres at our wedding. Though I know that Grape Soda itself is not a very healthy food; for us it represents a shared sense of adventure and dream-following.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Had no idea you had a blog….love being able to follow how things are going from away.

  2. Just found your blog-I was searching for other pregnant ladies who have also had their appendix out while pregnant-I was 8 weeks when I had mine out (now 35 weeks!) and it was the craziest/scariest experience of my life having surgery while pregnant and being scared to death by the anesthesiologist (lucky me!). So ready to meet our baby though-thanks for posting your story-i’ll be checking back in!
