If You Paint a Turd gold, You Still Have a Turd.

'Our' cabin is being painted today. Nevermind the fact that it's damn near falling apart inside, complete with countertops from 1972 & a hole in the floor of the front breezeway. BUT, as long as it looks good on the outside, I guess that's all that matter, right?!   (ggrrr...) It will be SOO nice to finally move outta here, out to Baptism, to our OWN spot, & out of 'Parent-Central' LOL! I've been looking at decorating ideas, paint, etc.. I'm getting excited! Jake says we should be in this summer. (happy dance!) I'm really into Japanese-inspired decor, plants, zebra, Feng Shui, etc.. so that's the type of thing that we're registered for at Target. NOT TO MENTION camper season is here! Time to get up to Itchy-Belly & give our 'Love Shack' it's annual once-over. That camper is about my favorite spot in the summer! I can spend every spare second there. Not looking forward to the ticks & skeeters, but you can't have your beer & drink it too, I s'pose! It'd be nice to get garden up there, maybe more lawn furniture, hmm.. picnic table maybe? AND A SLIP n SLIDE!! All about the Slip n Slide!

Restaurant City

Ok, so I've pretty much eliminated/blocked the FB games/apps that I'm not into. (No Fishville, haha!) But 1 that I still love? Restaurant City! Come be my neighbor! I'm trying to get as many of the Salmon, Rice, Wasabi & Seaweed to get my Sushi Bar - Help me out?

Score Freebies

Ok, I'm kinda of a 'freebie junkie' - I <3 freebies & samples! So here's a couple ways that I found to get your hands on some, & try some new stuff!

Facebook & Twitter - Just search 'free stuff, samples, freebies, etc.. Daily freebie posts
Google 'Free stuff, samples, etc..'
Sign up to be a BzzAgnet at - Consumer WOM site to try & give feedback on new products.
Follow freebie blogs.
Become a 'Fan' of certain brands on Facebook for a freebie. Check their tabs. Aveeno has one :) Bumpits too!
So these are just a couple of the easiest ways to score freebies & samples. If you know of any cool freebie blogs or link, post them. Sharing is caring LOL!!

Nikki's 'Intro' Blog

Well, since Therese did an 'intro' blog, I suppose I will too. Hmm.. where to start? It's really quite simple.. I'm me. A little of this, & a little of that. (I feel like I should be on a TV screen, with my name under my face, speaking to a camera LMAO!) So, I'm engaged to my best friend, who I laugh with almost every second we're together. That really is the basis of our relationship - Humor. He's inside my head, always saying things just as I was thinking them. He says I do the same to him. We love music, celeb gossip (OMG SOO glad he's not reading this!!), fishing, camping, dancing, bonfires, & being w/ our 'people'. We're planning on building a house, on Baptism Lane in Finland. The ginormous garage is there now, with a loft where we'll (hopefully) be living after the wedding at the end of July. (SOO excited, BTW!) My favorite household chore? The chores that Jake does! (wink) My least favorite chore? DISHES!! I don't have a dishwasher (only Jake on a part-time basis LOL), so dishes are the worst. And I always have tons! I'm constantly cooking (Not much of a baker tho.) I don't like rude, ignorant or arrogant people. Nor do I surround myself with people I don't trust. I'm currently working on my Associates in Science Degree in Business Mgmt, with a major in Marketing. I' love school! What can I say.. I'm a Lifer! I have 2 fan-tabulous dogs, Yukina & Tao, who I just adore! My babies! I love penguins, tigers, dancing, purple, Star Wars, Disney Pixar movies, tacos, comedy, sushi, & Captain Morgan (wink wink!) I love photography & am pretty good with a camera. (Hmm.. this would be easier if someone was asking me questions, reality-TV styles LOL!) I can be a pain in the ass (ask Jake), but I'm worth it (again.. ask Jake!) I'm a freakin' K-L-U-T-Z!! My stepmom Margie (who recently passed) said I could 'trip over air' & nicknamed me 'Dizz-Butt'! So, don't follow me, because I'm run into & trip over everything!! (You've been warned LOL!) So, I guess that's Nikki in a Nutshell (now available on eBay, & makes a great gift!) You're welcome ;-)
