My name is Niki. Here's where you can get to know me better...
|Me and my sailor|
I am a mother to three children, a set of identical twin girls(12) and a son(10). I am married to a wonderful man, who is in the US Navy.
You should know that I am a ridiculously goal-oriented person. I'll probably talk about them a lot. I love coming up with goals and achieving them. Could be my super competitive side coming out. I may or may not be a sore loser. You'll have to play a board game with me to find out.
I have a new found love of running and am hoping to get through a half marathon in 2014. In 2013 I ran my first 5Ks. I did the Spartan, which made me almost cry and The Run or Dye, which made me laugh!
My Blogging Life
|My three kiddos|
I started Hello Paper Moon in late June of 2012, although I had been thinking of doing it for much longer than that. I used to write a personal finance blog called Debt Free by Thirty in which I challenged myself to wipe out almost $15,000 worth of consumer debt in a year and a half. I did it in a year! Blogs are awesome that way!
I love the personal finance blogging community. I learned so much and made some pretty amazing friends. But alas I reached my goal of being debt free and felt it was time to move onto something I felt more comfortable with. That's when the idea for Hello Paper Moon came into my brain.
So I am starting all over again, with building new relationships through blogging, which is the best part anyway. I can't wait to meet new people and find more interesting things to make and share what we're doing. I am beyond excited!
I Tweet! follow me
And you should too. It's a fun and instant way to have a conversation. I mostly tweet about nothing in particular, but some unique conversations come out of it. See.. weird.
Just found She-Ra on netflix instant. This will be the best. night. ever.
