Nicole Porter Family, Life 1 Comment

With Arizona producing some incredible weather this time of year, there is still no denying the lack of abundance of things to do here. Hiking, shopping, eating and you have about covered it all. But there are several events happening around here that many people don’t know about so I’ve decided to put together a calendar of things to do …

Nicole Porter Family, Home, Life, Travel, Uncategorized 3 Comments

I can’t believe 2017 has come to an end. Looking back on the year, we seriously squeezed 2 years worth of stuff into one year and it was crazy! It was full of love, laughs, tears, learning new things, exploring the world, spending time with family, growing a business and getting married! Here are some of our favorite highlights from …

POLAR EXPRESS EXPERIENCE

Nicole Porter Family, Life, Travel 3 Comments

The Polar Express in Williams, Arizona, which is about 3 hours from where we live, has always been on my bucket list of things to do around the holidays. The problem is that it sells out very far in advance (sometimes even an entire year prior) and we never plan our lives very far ahead. So this year I thought …

THE ONLY THING WE HAVE TO FEAR…

Nicole Porter Life 41 Comments

A couple weeks ago (actually during the TruTour weekend), I came across this quote: “Your growth scares people who don’t want to change”. And ever since I read it, it has constantly been in the back of my mind. I feel like it has been weighing on me heavily recently and I have finally decided to share it because I’m …

I am so excited to announce that we have launched several new Socomm Apparel products! We have added 3 shirts, 2 different style hats and an iPhone case! Probably the thing I’m most excited about is that we now have hats!!! We have two flex fit hat styles – a snapback flat rim hat that is “one size fits all” …

MY FAVORITE DIAPERS, HONESTLY!

Nicole Porter Family, Life 3 Comments

With my son, Beckam, being 15 months old now, I have gone through my fair share of diaper trials. Before I became a mom, a diaper was a diaper and they were all the same. I couldn’t tell them apart just by picking them up and I definitely didn’t know what leaks and blowouts really meant. But oh how the …

WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE TRUNITED 3.0

Nicole Porter Life 9 Comments

This past year has taken my breath away. Was it really just a year ago that we traveled to Colorado for the Trunited Prelaunch? Have we really grown this much in such a short time? And if so…are there any limits to what we can accomplish going forward?I honestly believe this beautiful concept of Socialized Commerce that Nic created is …

OUR LABOR OF LOVE

Every Labor Day, patients from across Arizona and Colorado line up around the block of every Risas Dental office for an event called Labor of Love. And every Labor Day my heart swells with pride and my eyes tear with joy. For the Porter family, Labor Day is one of the best days of the year. It has marked a time to …

SIXTYFOUR – A PROJECT CLOSE TO MY HEART

Nicole Porter Beauty, Family, Life 5 Comments

Sixtyfour is here!!! A year ago when we launched Trunited, we searched and searched for the perfect products and brands to be a part of it. And while we were able to connect with some incredible companies and offer their products at the same prices that they were already sold at, it soon became our mission and desire to create …

OVERNIGHT OATS 3 WAYS

Nicole Porter Fitness, Food, Health, Life 5 Comments

My normal breakfast is usually just a quick bowl of sugary cereal, but now that I’m on my new healthy fitness journey, I really wanted to ditch the cereal and replace it with something hearty, quick and delicious for breakfast. Enter overnight oats! These little jars of deliciousness are so easy and quick to make, making it the perfect addition …

Nicole Porter Fitness, Health, Life 2 Comments

Every new diet and exercise plan has to begin on a Monday, right?! In my world, it is the only day of the week that I can force myself to start something new so with it being Monday, I am starting a new adventure. Beckam recently turned one year old on June 19th and I loved spending this last year …

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

Nicole Porter Family, Life 0 Comments

Food, fun, fireworks, FAMILY… 4th of July has come to be one of my favorite holidays. Spending time with the ones you love outside all day and ending the night cuddled up under the stars watching the explosion of lights in the sky is my idea of the perfect day. It’s a holiday that brings our family together and reminds …

FATHER’S DAY AND BECKAM TURNS 1!

Nicole Porter Family, Life 2 Comments

A year ago today, our son Beckam was born on Father’s Day. It was so special to celebrate Nic and all he does as a dad on the same day that our son was born. So as our honeymoon approached its end, we flew straight from Rome to Los Angeles and made it just in time to celebrate both Father’s Day …

Nicole Porter Family, Life, Marriage 0 Comments

What do you do after spending three glorious nights in Lake Como? I mean, how do you top that? Seriously, we didn’t have the answer! When our final day arrived we were faced with the dilemma of where to go next and we were clueless. We did know, however, that we needed to get back to Milan for the convenience of …

.jpibfi_container img

Planning an entire wedding in 45 days didn’t leave much time for planning a honeymoon. All we knew on the day of our wedding was that we were going on a honeymoon. Everything else was undecided – what countries we would visit, how we would get there, where we would stay, what we would do. After our magical few days at …
