8 Things you know you wanted to know.


I got tagged for this a while back. I feel like you guys will not read OR comment it if I do not post a picture. Spoiled bloggers. So, here is my obligatory picture. I also should be vacuuming, making baby food, doing laundry and cleaning my shower right now. Instead, I am sitting thinking of 8 things to tell you all about myself. Deep, secret things. These lists scare me a little for some reason.. Oh well, here goes nothin'...

1. Every week at my grocery shopping trip, I pick up a bag of beef jerky. And eat the whole thing on the way home. The whole thing.

2. I was voted "most likely to be the next Jenny McCarthy" in high school. Does anyone remember that? Adrianna? Lauren? Anyway, what does that mean? That could be wrong in so many ways.

3. My dream all growing up was to be a writer/actor on Saturday Night Live. I would make up skits and act them out. I really can't tell you why I didn't do it except I guess I was scared. Scared to leave the state. Scared of what would happen in New York. Scared of complete and utter rejection. Still to this day, Brent and I are obsessed with SNL and I always think to myself...I could do that. It makes me feel a little sting even writing about it.

4. I have a weird and strange addiction to milk. I do not like to share it. I get tense if people ask me if they can have a glass with their brownie, I flinch. I know it is weird. I know it does not make sense. I always got plenty growing up. I am so stingy with it. It is like liquid gold in my eyes.

5. I lived in Spain for a summer. I felt like I was in a movie. It would have been a coming of age movie. I learned a lot about myself. However, did not learn much spanish.

6. I am working on not wishing I had talents that I do not naturally possess. I have a hard time with this. I want to play guitar so badly. My hands are literally, literally not cut out for it. I also want to be crafty and sew. I have a sewing machine that has never been opened. I do think I can learn how to at least make a burp cloth or two.

7. My husband, Brent, is my BFFAE. I have had crushie on him since we went to student council camp in 7th grade. We were both officers. He hurled himself over bushes on my behalf and then mooned somebody. I thought it was the greatest thing I had ever seen. He had me at "hey,watch me moon this dude".

Seriously, I think Brent and I are the true essence of how God hand picks people to be together. Who could ever entertain and love me so?

8. I hate hate hate to see people left out. If I ever think anyone feels neglected or left out, it kills me. I want everyone to feel included and have fun. Having fun is important to me. That is why I am blogging and not vacuuming.

Anyone else wanna play? I would not want to leave anyone out, so I tag EVERYONE!

Thanks for the comment! And don't worry about not hiking up the hill--I don't know if I would have done it either! I would love to see you and meet your little Mr. Man sometime soon though! :)

Funny that I knew a lot of this already! And yes, I do remember that about being the next Jenny McCarthy, and yes, you SHOULD'VE gone to NYC to try out, but you also have a great life here in Waco. I enjoy watch your awesome impersonations at least! ALso, I'm in the same way about #8 and the worst to me is when someone gets the feelings hurt. I hate that even more I think!

Melissa said...

This post was hilarious, Nicki! I feel like I know you so much better now! :)

lauren,
you are right about my waco life! who knows what would've happened to me in a big city in the biz...i know the lord had other plans for me! maybe we could start a local show here starring us. i think it would do great in the ratings! we would laugh.

lauren said...

I would LOVE that! We might be the only ones laughing, but it would be worth it!

I was sitting here trying to think of ways you are like Jenny McCarthy (I remember that as well)! All I have so far is that you are both cute, blonde, petite, very funny and have little boys!

walkers said...

you are so precious! I don't remember the jenny thing but its because you are a hottie boom bottie like her probably! and who knows, maybe you and brent and the bits will be on a vacation somewhere someday and you will be discovered!you are a gem! a

amy said...

I had no idea you guys had such a romantic beginning....I mean, nothing says true love like mooning.

Corrie said...

Nic,
I think of you every time I pour myself a big glass of MILK! :)
BTW...What is BFFAE?

cdjenkins said...

WAIT...Corrie, I thought the same thing, and I think I figured it out. BFFAE is...best friends forever and ever! Ha!

lauren said...

You are an ENFP, too?! It's really weird, but I think a lot of my close friends are! Not that I look for that in a friend...I am not a true extrovert like I think you are, but I lean more that way.
