23 Things // Birthday

Today is my 23rd Birthday so I wanted to do a fun blog post! I'm going to share 23 things that happened during this past year slash things about me you may not know! This pic was snapped a few days ago from our room on the ocean! 

23 Things // 

1. I am OBSESSED with English Bulldogs like it's probably unhealthy. I think they are the cutest fattest dogs and I reaaaaalllly want one. 

2. I could eat tacos every night for dinner. I make them at minimum once a week #tacotuesday

3. I watched every single episode of Pretty Little Liars since I was in high school and I'm a little bit sad it's over :(

4.  I have over 60 pairs of shoes in my closet yet somehow I still feel there are gaps in my collection #help

5. I love cooking & baking. One of my favorite things to do is make Sunday night dinner at my parent's house. 

6. I refuse to go to sleep unless Kyle rubs my back #sorrykyle. He's rubbed my back every night for the past 3 1/2 lucky am I!!!

7. My favorite place in the world is Disney. Kyle took me there when we were in Florida in April and I was in heaven. Something about that place just makes all the bad things in the world disappear. 

8. Trader Joe's chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter filling are my weakness...If you haven't tried them you need to! 

9. When I was little I made my parents buy me the dog that American Girl dolls had ( a Westie), and subsequently, I named her the exact same name, Coconut. 

10. This past year I accepted my first full time teaching position! 

11.  I have an older sister Danielle who has special needs. I spend 90% of my free time with her. She's the best. 

12. I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education. I am licensed to teach K-6.  

13.  All of my friends and family call me Niki and I rarely react if someone calls me Nicholle in public!

14. My favorite color is blue, more specifically turquoise blue.

15. I cannot watch scary movies because I legitimately will be too scared to get out of bed in the middle of the night to go pee! No thanks!!

16. I took dance for 7 years when I was younger and I pretty much sucked. I would dread dance performances because I had no clue what I was doing! Not sure why I continually begged to take more classes!

17.  I've gotten a perm twice in my life....I do not suggest it.

18. I've watched Princess Diaries & A Cinderella Story at least 50 times...this year :)

19. Kyle & I took a trip to Siesta Key this past April & it was one of the best vacations yet. The water there is incredible!

20. Birds freak me out. Seriously, I'm afraid they're going to charge me and peck me to death.

21. I love tutti frutti jelly beans #yum

22. Swimming in the ocean scares me because I'm afraid the little crabs will bite my toes.

23. I think this is going to be the best year yet :)

Hope you've enjoyed! I'm off to celebrate!


  1. Happy Birthday! Well wishes for another great year!

  2. happy birthday!! Ive watched every episode of PLL too! I am not sad it's over, but wish they would've spent more time in their "older" years because i think the last season was the best!

  3. I think English bulldogs are the cutest too! Something about them just makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. I also am an AWFUL dancer but was involved in cheer & gymnastics up until my first year of college...I am happy that I most likely won't ever HAVE to learn a choreographed dance to perform again in my life (: Happy Birthday Nicholle!

  4. Happy birthday!! I hope you had a great day! I watched EVERY single episode of PLL too - I miss it already!

  5. I love tacos too and lol at your comment about the perm. I have considered it before myself but never made the leap

  6. Happy birthday, girl! I loved getting to know more about you :) Posts like these are so fun.

  7. Happy birthday!!! Disney really is the best place on earth! My hubby and I are going there next month and I'm just so excited!

  8. Happy birthday!! Ughhh one thing I miss about living in Florida is living across the street from a Trader Joes! Their baked goods are so yum!!

  9. I was so sad when PLL ended too! And I no longer swim in the ocean (I live 5 minutes from the beach), but only because I have a fear that a shark will eat me.... which is very unlikely on Long Island haha

  10. Happy birthday! I Coconut is such a cute name for a Westie! I had two growing up, but they were boringly names Chelsea and Spencer lol.
