Merry Christmas!

I wanted to give a quick report of our wonderful Christmas! Can I just tell you what amazing parents Nic and I have. We were totally spoiled and got so many wonderful things! My favorite gifts from my folks were a wonderful digital camera (which I can now use for my blog pics) and a record player. Yes, I said record player! I collect records. I have all of my mom's records from when she was growing up and I have added some Michael Jackson and other favorites to the stash. I have been using old D.I. record players over the years but this is a brand new one that also has a radio, CD player, and tape player all in one. I also got some great things from my in- laws. Most people complain about gifts from their in-laws but mine really do an awesome job shopping for me--they got me clothes, always an A+! I also got some awesome jewelry and an amazing Italy book from my brother in law to name just a few.

From my wonderful husband my favorite gift was these fabulous shoes, talk about a good shopper! He also got me a monogrammed robe which I LOVE!

Lets Get It Started!

Well I decided to jump on the blog craze! I had a heck of a time trying to think of a I tried to think of my interests and go from there. So, Ashley is my name, and NAF stands for Nic, Animals, & Facts. Let me break that down for you.

Nic is the love of my life, by best friend and eternal companion. You hear of people who have soulmates and are just totally made for each other--yes that is us! He literally is everything I wanted in a husband...Handsome, Tall, Dark Hair, Athletic, Strong, Kind, Hard Working, Smart...I really could go on for days! And its not just me, ask anyone who knows him. Everyday I thank my Father in Heaven for allowing me to have him (and for prompting my best friend to set us up!)Longer story for another post!

Animals. My love for animals has grown tremendously since I have become an adult. I have a pet rabbit (a black minilop if you know your bunnies) and 4 pet chickens (that live at my Father in laws) and I can't wait till I have my own house/property so I can get more. I love photographing animals as well. I will also try to include those here on my blog.

Facts. I have always been a lover of facts! All kinds! For example: "Seaweed extract is used in ice-cream". I'll try to include my favorites in my posts!

Well I think that's enough for the first day! I am excited to get this started and see where it takes me!
