Nicole's Fabulous 411

Good morning folks!
For some reason I am awake at 5:30am
on my day off.
Like wide awake,
not just a little awake...
I haven't yawned at all and I feel
like I could go run a marathon awake.

So, as I'm laying here all by my lonesome
while Sir Dan galavants off to work,
I decide to catch up on this weekends blog posts.
And I happen to stumble across one from
my bestie Karla (who linked up with Erin)
answering personal-ish questions.
And since I kinda love sharing,
and I'm laying here not willing to part with the fact
that I can maybe still get some sleep,
I decided to answer them too.

1. If you could do one thing differently in your life, what would it be?
Looking back, I do wish I did more things differently- been a little nicer
to people, actually tried to enjoy school, not taken things for granted...
But one thing in particular I would've changed-
I definitely should've followed my passion and gone straight to
Ricci's instead of suffering through school to get a degree I might never use
(and also put myself into $35k worth of debt).
I knew that this is what I was meant to be doing from the beginning,
but I listened more to my parents than to my heart.
I know that the time I spent at college was worth while,
I grew up a lot during those years,
but the thing that really gets me is the money I spent.
Sure it'll look great on a resume when I apply for jobs.
Sure it's where I met Sir Dan and found my soul mate.
Sure I made amazing friends.
But who's to say I wouldn't have if things were different??

2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
These questions get me every time. 
Sir Dan and I have discussed this on a weekly basis.
More so now because we are nearing our one year anniversary
where we said 'in about 5 years we'd start trying for babies'
And now it's more like 4 years which is kinda scary!
In 5 years:
I'll probably be pregnant with Baby Sir NiDan,
which hopefully means we'll be financially stable living in a house
with a dog or two.
I'll have a good client base and great job,
Sir Dan will be teaching and we will have traveled.
Scary to think this might all be happening soon.

3. Do you honestly want kids?
I can honestly say that I want kids.
If I could magically birth them without pain or suffering
would be even better.
That's the only part I do not want to experience.
A while ago if you asked me this same question,
I'm not sure what my answer would've been.
But now I can say that I do-
just not anytime soon.
I like where we are now in our relationship-
I like being able to go out and not worry about a babysitter,
I like using our money for things that we need (and sometimes want)-
not on diapers and formula.

4. What has been the best moment of your life so far?
I've been fortunate to have a lot of these moments- 
especially since I met sir Dan,
and now that I'm doing what I love.
Of course our wedding was definitely top 5,
but also the many adventures I've been lucky to go on
have been as well.
One day stands out in particular:
the day Sir Dan and I really got to know each other.
We spent about 2 hours saying goodbye which was more like
rambling and talking about anything in his car.
Somehow at that moment I knew he was different,
the one.
Definitely one of my best moments.

5. What is your life theme song?
I feel like I have a lot-
depending on what I'm doing that day
and the mood I'm in.
Most of the time I'd say something
that I can bust a move to
or Cher because I am obsessed.
I'm diggin the song 'Scream and Shout'
by Will I Am and Britney Spears...
'Feel this moment' 
by Christina Aug (can never spell her last name)& Pitbull...
Don't Stop Believin'
by Journey or Glee...
Don't stop the party
by Pitbull...
I found someone
by Cher.
There's more but that's definitely a great start!!

6. What is one thing you have yet to accomplish that you want to do before you die?
Again there is many but I'll only name one for now:
Sir Dan and I want to backpack across Europe.

7. If you could choose one thing to be known for, what would it be?
Besides my awesome hair styling skills...
being an outgoing, positive, happy person.
I try to always be happy and outgoing :)

8. If you could do anything you wanted right in this very moment (no consequences, no fear, etc), what would it be?
Travel. Done.

9. What has been the most challenging moment in your life?
Money. It's such a big factor in everything and most of the time
in a negative, gets me down, kinda way.
I do not like money,
even when I have it I don't like it.
It makes life difficult and stressful.
I also believed that it is taken from us wrongly
and put towards the wrong things.
I'm not saying I want to be rich-
I just want to be stable and not worry about debt
and the challenges that are caused by it.

10. Summarize yourself in one word.
it's what happens when you take outgoing, 
bubbly, loving, and legendary and smush it into one word 
for crazy questions like this.

There ya have it...
a little more about me that you probably
didn't want to know
but now do :)
Happy Monday-
time to go back to bed for this chiquita!
