About Nookgirl (Brandy) and Newlandplus6

Hi! I’m Brandy and have decided to jump into the exciting world of blogging. I am the wife to my husband Jesse of 12 years, (almost 13 at this point)! We met through a mutual friend and for me, it was love at first sight. We have 6 gorgeous children 4 girls and 2 boys, (all born via C-section). Our life can get quite chaotic around here as Alexander (Alex) is 12, Holden is 9 (as a side note Holden is on the Autism spectrum hence quite a bit of the chaos), Grace is 8 (has sensory issues and man they can drive me bananas at times), Jocelyn is 5 (she can be a bit sassy), Gabriella (Ella) is 2 almost 3, and our surprise bundle is Scarlett who just turned 1 in February.

I love to read anything and everything I can get my hands on fiction and non-fiction and have since childhood (my favorite author is Dr. Seuss)! However, I have found that with being a mommy reading time has been put to the side more often than not and switched to bedtime stories instead. I survive the chaos with tons of coffee (Starbucks is my second home).

I will be the first to admit that I have ADHD when it comes to cleaning and organization (It’s a work in progress especially with 6 kids I am finding it is a must). I am an avid follower of FlyLady.net and definitely taking it in baby steps.

I am a down to earth low maintenance girl, (give me jeans, a sweater, and sneakers and I’m in heaven). I am hoping to make this my full-time job by sharing the adventures and trials and tribulations of motherhood of 6 precocious but very different children. Also, I will be learning to make a full-time income from home with a blog and sharing what works and what may not work. Welcome to our life of love, chaos, and most of all family.
