happy birthday nikki

One of my good friends, Nikki, turned 50 last weekend and I was invited to the fabulous bash.  Nikki is a graphic artist and outside of work a super creative artist whose always making great gifts for people's bdays.

While I also landed a creative gene, I got the short end of the stick and can only create words...and I'm always super jealous I don't have the ability to create actual things for people. But this time around I figured maybe I'd give it a go and create something for her...even if it was just a bunch of words.

Then I had the great idea these words would be better spoken and some how convinced myself to read the words out loud to a house full of people.  I also commissioned another creative friend to organize the words on paper for me. 

She asked me to post what I read...so along with an image of what my friend put together...here are 50 things I love about Nikki:

She is creative
& artistic

A lady with an attitude
& a purveyor of some pretty bad ass baked goods
She is a doting daughter,
attentive aunt
& devoted sister

A genuine listener
& a fellow connoisseur of adult beverages…specifically vodka
& has a booming personality

Is a movie maven
a music enthusiast
& a hippy at heart

She has an enormously kind heart
& is a shoulder to cry on

She is one mean mama on the dance floor

Is self made,
self sufficient
& a loyal friend

But…one of the worst spellers I have EVER met
& ends most sentences with a question mark

She is Howard’s hag,
a creator of some amazingly, magnificent treasures,
one foxy lady
& an accessory whore

She is beautiful on the inside & out,
a food fanatic,
raucous,
a lusty wench
& vertically challenged

Will always, ALWAYS tell you what she thinks,
throws legendary Halloween parties
& a savior of small animals…just ask Willy

She is compassionate,
generous,
a dirty girl,
a partaker of trouble,
a love maker
& a vixen

Handles loss & change graciously
& rolls with the punches, no matter how hard they hit

She is a punk rocker,
knows how to properly fly her freak flag,
is sassy lady
& is inappropriate…in the best way possible

She is fantastically funny,
cusses like a sailor,
is vivacious,
displays a lust for life

and is hands down the owner of the world’s most bodacious ta tas
