Introducing our newest venture: Mamachic Co.

March 25, 2015

Photo by dirty sugar In my freshman year of college, I dated a boy named Shane. For a week. Like many of my Duke relationships, it started fire-y and fizzled out just as fast. Still a novice to all the “proper” etiquette to dating, I just did what seemed easiest. I stopped returning his calls. [...]

Eva at 1 week old

October 6, 2013

Still basking in the afterglow of Eva’s natural birth while still in Annville, PA, I decided to take advantage of our lush surroundings and get Eva’s newborn portraits done. The photographer I really liked specialized in natural light family portraiture, and she also turned out to be the mother of a schoolmate of Mike’s little [...]

5 Reasons Why the Minivan is COOL

October 5, 2013

Wake up, America! The minivan is COOL! Mike “Pimp My Ride” Hollick Holla! I mean, I get it. It’s not a sports car. It was created with “the family” in mind. Sure, you won’t see a minivan in a rap video or a James Bond film, unless it’s being run off the road in the [...]

Go Eva, It’s Your Birth Day

September 19, 2013

Photo by Bellies to Babies.   I’ll admit it. Part of me secretly hoped Mike would show up for baby girl’s delivery heaving with sweat in his Pumbaa costume, perhaps with Nick (in Timon greenery, of course) in tow for good measure, with some backup singing, lamaze coaching, and general hilarity. Just for fairness sake! [...]

(Baby) Showering Us with Love

August 13, 2013

Often, people are incredulous that we travel full-time, as a family, on tour with The Lion King. What a logistical nightmare, they say. Where do you live? How do the kids go to school? Where do you call home? Does it ever get lonely? No, we say. We travel with plenty of people who are [...]

Building the baby belly, week by week

June 26, 2013

Whooo-hooozzzzzzzz. That’s the sound of me rounding into the home stretch of pregnancy — excited but exhausted. Friends, I’m at 36 weeks now and Baby Girl’s still inside! High five! Now I have to lie down. In order to avoid another premature birth plus theatrics during labor and delivery (as comical as that was for [...]

On Father’s Day, to the big guy I call Dada

June 16, 2013

From Angela: Here is what I think Max would say to Mike on this Father’s Day 2013. Just a mother’s interpretation, mind you, and probably one of the last times I can get away with speaking for my already very verbal kid. So I must grab it!   Hi Dada! For Father’s Day, I wanted [...]

The Insta-Home Challenge: Tulsa, OK

June 9, 2013

Life seems to be moving at light speed now.  I guess that’s what happens when you have kids — every day becomes so chock full of responsibilities, activities and moments to savor, that you have no time to be bored, and scarce time for introspection.  I can honestly say I don’t remember the last time [...]

Pit Stop: Talkin’ Civil Rights in Memphis

September 20, 2012

A guest blog post by Amy CordileoneAngela’s note: To say that Amy Cordileone is an amazing multi-tasker would be a bit of an understatement! This wife to Nick (who plays Timon on tour with The Lion King) and mom to 10-year-old Hero lives in New York City while teaching at New York University, and then [...]
