Your nickname ... Growing up it was Nikki. When I went to college I ditched it to be more sophisticated with my given name, Nicole. That worked well until we moved back to my childhood hometown three years ago. Guess who I am again? Yep ... Nikki. And there is no fighting it.
Your eye color ... Blue.
Your hair color ... Well, that one's a little tougher. I am a natural dishwater blonde. With a little help, I am a highlighted, sun-kissed blonde.
One fact about you ... Today is my anniversary! Rick and I have been married for 14 years. It's been a great ride and I am excited to see where our journey takes us next.
Favorite color ... Green, mostly lime green. It's my "signature color". Anytime I can buy something in a particular color, I go for lime green. Look ... Rick was even wearing my favorite color in the above photo.
Favorite place ... My house. I could stay here and not leave it ever.
Favorite celebrity ... I have a Top 5: Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Shemar Moore, Mark Wahlberg, any bald guy. I always tell people that if they wanted to spend a ridiculous amount of money on me that I would like to spend an entire day with Tim Gunn. In the movie about my life I want Diane Lane to play me and Vin Diesel to play Rick.
Favorite animal ... I love birds. I just want to sit and watch them all day.
Favorite song ... Favorite songs change constantly, don't they? I have favorite 80's hair band songs, favorite disco-vibe songs (Abba), favorite mushy love songs, favorite contemporary Christian songs, favorite country songs, etc. Right now I am loving the song Take Your Time by Sam Hunt. I am constantly singing it.
Favorite book ... It's hard to pick a favorite, but how about Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. In the past few years I have really loved The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom and The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin. My favorite author is Kristin Hannah. My childhood favorite book was A Room for Cathy by Catherine Woolley. It was my favorite because I always wanted my own bedroom (I shared with my sister) and Cathy finally got hers. I have an old paperback of it on my bookshelf.
