Nie Nie: on being Proud


I can sincerely come up with thousands of reasons why I am proud. I decided to come up with a few vital reasons to share. (Not in any particular order)
I looked up other words that mean ‘proud’ and words like arrogant, conceited, puffed-up, pompous, self-righteous and bigheaded came up. I hope I don’t come off that way…but if I do, I still am proud of this list.
I am proud to say I married the most amazing man on the planet.
I am proud that my husband is SO dang good looking.
I come from the great land of America. How truly blessed I am that I was born here where dreams can be achieved. I am proud to be an American.



I am proud that Christian cuts my hair-no charge (and since I don’t have any money it works out really great, because we find other ways of payment.)

I am proud and confident to say that Christian adores me for every reason possible.
I am proud of my curvy, athletic body that can support my desire to have children. (so is christian)
I am proud of my choice to put off school to have offspring.
I am proud that my father is a representative in the legislature in Utah and fights for values.
