I can’t believe how 9 months has flown by... Baby Brass Owl is coming in 3 weeks! So it’s bittersweet, but tomorrow (5/25) is my last day working at the store for a while. That doesn’t mean you won’t still see me, I will be waddling around doing projects at the shop before baby. And after he arrives I will be popping in all the time (with him of course ❤️). As I transition out, I am pleased to announce that Briana has been promoted to Store Manager. She will be running the day-to-day operations and helping me with other projects. I will still be doing all the buying, marketing/social media, and events, so bottom line, nothing changes at TBO!
Thank you all for the support and encouragement throughout my pregnancy and our difficult journey. Stay tuned for baby pics in the coming weeks 😱
Love always, Nicole, TBO Owner
PS- check back on social media tomorrow for a Memorial Day Sale announcement! 🤫 #shopsmallastoria#astoria#astoriaqueens#thebrassowl#shopsmall#supportlocal#ditmarsdistrict#ditmars#queens#babybabarlibfeld#37weekspregnant

Becoming a mother has led me to my truth. For so many years, my purpose was focusing on my career and striving for more and more. Although I’m extremely grateful for all that I’ve done and accomplished, nothing has come close to being a mama. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The tireless days and nights have definitely been tough but I’ve learned so much about patience, vulnerability, compassion, and love like I never knew was possible. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s true that your children are your teachers and I feel so lucky to have a baby girl on the way to learn from, love and journey with. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m definitely nervous for the transition of 1 child to 2, and for the many sleepless newborn nights... but beyond that, I’m so excited for your arrival little one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can’t wait to meet you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At the home stretch! Here we go!

#tbt To my last workout before giving birth to my sweet babies - I did this workout the day before my scheduled c-section at 37weeks carrying a 6lb girl and boy 💜💙💪🏼 #twinning •

I am so extremely thankful to be apart of #streetparking - their programming allowed me to stay fit and active throughout my entire pregnancy. From the daily variety, modifications, and social media support groups it was easy to find programming tailored to how I felt on a daily basis. I can’t wait to start their post-partum programming in 6 weeks. •

Until then I plan on going on walks to keep my body somewhat active and enjoying my time off with the babies 🍼🌟💙💜 #twinmom#postpartumjourney#fitpregnancy#37weekspregnant#healthypregnancy#mypregnancyjourney#fitmom#garagegym

I’m so heavy and uncomfortable now, I’m so ready to meet baby girl!! I’m so glad I went out this weekend to shoot some maternity style shots, because dressing up is a chore and I just can’t anymore 😭 2 weeks to go 🙌🏽 #37weekspregnant#9monthspregnant
Anak bayik udah gede ♥️ Bentar lagi kita ketemu ya, Nak. Alhamdulillah hampir 9 bulan ini progress semua nya baik-baik aja. Terimakasih ya kerjasama nya. Satu step lagi nih, kita kerjasama biar kamu bisa ketemu langsung sama Ayah, sama semua keluarga disini. Gak cuma denger suara nya aja dari perut. Biar kita bisa usel-uselan sama Ayah.
Semangaaaaat ya, Nak. Kita lewatin sama-sama. Kita berjuang sama-sama, ya! Apapun dan bagaimanapun proses nya, yang penting kita berdua selamat dan sehat 💪 Love you.
Kayak gini ya rasa nya jatuh cinta sebelum ketemu.... #ceritalintanghamil#37weekspregnant
Sekarang udah 37minggu kamu di dlm perut mama. Kurang lebih 2mingguan lagi kamu akan lahir kalau prediksi dokter.

No matter what is going on in this strange, beautiful, mad world. I'll always carry you with love, and love you no matter what. #37weekspregnant Bismillah..

Yes I’m wearing white before Memorial Day 🇺🇸 is officially here... 😂😂 Is that even still a thing?! 🤷♀️ .
Enjoying the few weeks left we have as a family of 4 🥰 🤰
and heading off to celebrate my grandpas (Tenley’s great grandpas) 98th birthday 🎂!!Crazy to think of everything he has seen/been through in 98 years!
Such a full circle moment to have her next to me, in a similar dress, and have me pregnant with our next child 🙌🏻😭 I wore this same exact dress 👗 and necklace 4 years ago at my #maternityphotoshoot Photoshoot with Tenley in the #outterbanks ! SWIPE RIGHT to see a picture from that shoot 🥰

The other day I was mid workout and needed to catch my breath. I hit pause on my tv and just happened to turn around. When I did, I realized it had been so long since I had read the quotes on the wall behind me. I hung them there about a year ago as inspiration, but since they’re behind me when I’m working out, I rarely read them. Here’s what they say...
-“Actually, I can.”
-“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” -“She believed she could, so she did.” -“You did wake up today to be mediocre.” -“The body achieves what the mind believes.”
-“Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable.” -“You don’t have to be perfect to be amazing.”
-“The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.”
-“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”
And here’s what I realized when I was reading them…these words are so much more than inspiration to me. They are my WHY! They are why I continue on this journey of health and fitness and they are why I made the choice to coach and help other women. Before I started all this fitness stuff, I literally didn’t believe any of this. I didn’t think I could. I didn’t realize that working out and having good nutrition was a lifestyle. I thought I had to be hardcore and I only ever considered exercising and dieting as a means to quickly drop some lbs. I had no idea that my mindset was a mess and I struggled so badly with self doubt. And I certainly didn’t have anything in my life that was setting my soul on fire.
That has all changed now. I made a decision a few years ago to try out this whole “home workout” thing and clean up my eating with the support of my friend and coach. And when I did I was of course only looking to lose some baby weight. Funny enough, I lost the weight, but gained so much more along the way. They always says “it’s not about the end result, it’s what you learn along the way.” I share all of this because I know there are other women out there struggling like I was. (See comments for end of rant ⬇️🤣)
Ready for the comeback -round two 💪🏼👶🏼❤️
Taylor and I had our first #postpartumworkout this morning. Super modified, super slow, and very cautiously, but yano what? I felt amazing! I’m listening to my body but my body is sayin HELL YES to this again 😍•
I’m technically #37weekspregnant today 🤷🏻♀️😂 and Taylor is 3 weeks old... we don’t do things conventionally over here, but we make t work 👍🏼•
Wantto join me on my #postpartumjourney and working my way back to my #happy ? Comment below and I’ll tell you how you can get in on this with me/us 😘
Some of my favourite mornings in Italy were spent walking around the local market picking up fresh fruit, pasta, cheese, bread. I'm so looking forward to warm weather & runs to the farmers markets in Oakville with my little bambino this summer 💛 #37weekspregnant#babykhosla
Pre-birthday treats to myself have arrived ☺️ Figured I best buy a club vest as well as having the tshirt - juuuust about squeezes over the bump, but looking forward to being able to fit properly into them both and get back out there over summer 🥳 🤰🏼🏃🏼♀️ #RTRC#runthingsrunclub#postpartumrunning#37weekspregnant
Halo si kecil lincah kesayangan bunda 👶🏻❤️
Sayang, selama 9 bulan lebih bunda membawamu kemanapun bunda pergi membuat bunda merasa kamu sudah menjadi bagian terindah dan terbaik dalam hidup bunda. Kamu adalah bukti dari keajaiban berkat dan rahmat Allah. Gerakan-gerakan kecilmu dalam perut bunda yang selalu bunda nanti-nanti, kini sudah mulai membuat bunda mengaduh lirih, tapi entah mengapa bunda semakin sayang dan cinta sekali. Tak terasa, perasaan ini semakin berdebar menantikan pertemuan pertama kita. Keluarlah sesuai kemauanmu, sayang, karena bunda yakin jiwa sucimu tahu kapan waktu yang terbaik. Yang pasti kamu harus ingat bahwa kami di sini menunggumu dan akan siap dengan tanda-tanda cinta itu. Kita sama-sama berjuang ya, sayang ❤️ Bunda akan berusaha untuk tetap tersenyum dan pantang menyerah meski di momen kamu harus memutar dan mengencang mencari jalan keluar. Ayo kita berjuang bersama sayangku ❣️
MasyaAllah... Bismillah 🤗💕 #37weekspregnant 🤰🏻

This last trimester has lasted about 3x as long as the first 2 combined, I’m sure of it. #37weekspregnant
4 beautiful ☀️ cape miles this morning 🏃🏽♀️
Another run/walk, however when I ran I used my Garmin to see my pace which I haven’t done in the longest time. I can still maintain a 10 min mile and I was in shock 😳
I haven’t much cared about pace during my pregnancy, I love the no pressure to go out and hit certain paces mentality, which has honestly sparked my love of running again. Not that I lost it but the pressure to hit certain paces and run certain mileage can be draining on any runner.
Happy Saturday friends ❤️ I’m off to enjoy this beautiful day and eat tons of food at Phil’s aunts Memorial Day party tonight 😋
These @crucialcompression socks help so much during my runs, especially with pregnancy. My legs cramp up easily now, so these socks alleviate that 🙌🏽 interested in purchasing a pair!? Use code runthejourney15 for 15% off your purchase! .
We made it to full term... This pregnancy has flown by but I’ve completely had enough now and so ready to meet our new bundle of love. Don’t keep us waiting much longer please little one 💙👶🏼💖 #37weekspregnant
