Nic in a Nutshell

Perhaps the best way to learn a little something about me is through the eyes and heart of my husband.  Below are the top 10 things he “celebrates” about me.  Go figure:)

10. You make awesome egg sandwiches (on the menu at least once a week)

9.You love to squeeze us (us being my husband and our three kiddos-can’t get enough snuggles)

8. You keep our home SUPER clean (a self-proclaimed neat freak. I absolutely thrive on organization)

7. You embrace your faith (always an imperfect work in progress)

6. You are great at ping pong (my father-in-law will tell ya I’m a tad competitive)

5. Your family is your priority (always and forever)


4. You love “cute” and “little” things (over-the-top about all things cute and little)


3.Your heart is filled with compassion (a bit of a softy, I am)

2. You have the mouth of a middle schooler (I live with two of them and am just trying to keep up)

1. You are OURS (belonging to these guys is a gift like no other)
