Random Wednesday

Random Wednesday, you ask? But what about Wishful Wednesday? Well, as much as I love Kelsey's WW, this week's topic is one I know nothing about, so I can't really play along...sad day :( But if any of you are Glee fans (I've never watched an episode but hear that it's great), then head on over and join in the fun!

So here's some random facts, opinions, stories, what-have-you's about little ol' me...
(I'll try to be as entertaining as possible)
  • I got a haircut yesterday and L.O.V.E. it! (see pic below... )

  • I HATE being called Nikki. Nic, Cole, even Nicholas is fine, just not Nikki. No offense meant to anyone with the name Nikki, I just don't prefer it for myself.

  • I am a mommy to two little fur-babies. Nala will be 2 in July and I have no idea what mix of breeds she is. She is my little mess and I love her to death.

    Taz is the newest addition to my little family. He is 8 weeks old, also a nice compilation of multiple breeds, and I've had him for 3 days. (Some one was kind enough to dump him on the side of a county road when he was only 5 weeks old to fend for himself in coyote country. How thoughtful of them. Ok, seriously. Just typing that makes my blood boil. What kind of person does that??? A 6 WEEK OLD puppy. Left on the side of the road. Whoever you are, you have no heart, or soul probably. And if I ever found you, I would give you more than a piece of my mind....and probably a black eye...just saying.) Lucky for little Taz, God was smiling down on him and a kind soul rescued him and was looking for a "Forever Home" for him and that's how he found his way into my arms.
    Taz and Nala are BFF already and it's so cute to watch them play. Nala already has protective instincts for him. We're just gonna be one big happy family!

  • I'm missing a bone in each of my feet (yup, I have two less bones than the average human).

  • I recently registered for the Muddy Buddy Race in Austin with my BFF Jennie. I cannot wait! It's going to be so much fun!!
  • I also hate raw onion. If it's chopped up and mixed in something that's cooked I don't mind, but raw onion = yuuuck!!

  • I'm an outdoorsy person. I love to go camping, hiking, rock climbing, etc - if you can do it outside, it's pretty much guaranteed that I'll like it. And if it's a nice day out, I'll find any reason to be outside.

  • I act like a boy sometimes...ok, more than sometimes. I like "That's what she said" and "Your mom" jokes, I use physical threats to get my way ("I'll stab you with a fork...punch in the face....judo shop your arm...roundhouse kick", etc) - not that I would ever actually follow through, it's all bark, no bite, I can get pretty intense about working out (when Jennie and I used to work out together, we'd be in the weight room doing bench press and she'd say things like "Get it Beast!" haha, we got funny looks), I can be uber-competitive - like to the point that I make it not fun anymore, and I have nicknames like Beast and Lumberjack.

  • I am a huge book worm and proud of it.

  • I'd rather pursue hobbies than a career.

  • I have the travel bug, and, boy is it bad! I caught it about 5 years ago and it's been wreaking havoc on my bank account since.

  • I don't watch TV unless Grey's Anatomy, Archer, or Family Guy is on.

  • I really enjoy cooking and wish I had more time to do it. It has a soothing effect on me.

  • I could eat Rosa's bean and cheese burritos every day for the rest of my life and be happy.

  • If I only had one wish, I really would wish for world peace.

  • Becoming a book editor is my dream job...or an adventure travel writer/photographer.

Ok...I'm sure you are bored to death now. :) Hope everyone is having a Happy Hump Day! I'm going out to enjoy the wonderful sunshine!!

P.S. Today is Administrative Assistant Appreciation Day - so if you have one, thank them! If you are one - like me ;) - just know I appreciate you!! Hehe... Adios!!
