I promise I'm not trying to hijack this community. I just have a wonderful friend who could use some positivity in her life.

My name: Brigid
Their name: Nichole
Their relation to you: Best friend
Age/gender/location: 23/Female/Oklahoma
Their story: Nichole’s had it rough in a lot of ways (lots of family trouble), but she’s the toughest person I know. She’s the type of person who makes the best out of every situation, always with a smile on her face. She’s just so strong and selfless. However, that often means she suffers silently or just doesn’t think about what’s bothering her. Last month, her husband (they married in January) got shipped off to Iraq. I know she didn’t want him to join the Army to begin with, but she’s doing the best she can to be supportive. She’s been so lonely ever since he left. She moved back home after he left, but even surrounded by friends and family, she’s sad all the time. I wish there was something I could do to make her feel better – not just make her smile. I can’t bring Billy back from the war, but I thought some happiness from Cheery Crafts might bring her a little bit of sunshine.
Favorite hobbies: She loves to watch movies, shop, get her nails done, go out to bars, swim/tan, and spend time with her three-year-old son. She’s also big into the idea of being an “Army wife”.
" color(s): She likes all colors. She’s strawberry blonde so doesn’t wear much red, but I know she likes blue, pink and green a lot. She also wears blacks, browns, and neutral.
" music type/artist(s): She loves country and pop music. Some of her favorites are John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Rascal Flats, Miranda Lambert, and other stuff like that. (Sorry, I don’t really know country music very well.)
" animal(s)/pet(s): She has a corn snake (Waffles) and a lab puppy (Mia). She loves animals in general.
" candy/snack(s): She doesn’t really like sweets at all. I know she loves chips and other munchy things. She would always pick vanilla over chocolate (because she’s insane, but I still love her).
Do they have a "style"?: She’s a jeans and tee kind of girl. Her favorite store is Aeropostale because she likes their shirts and their jeans come in short sizes (we’re both kinda little). She also likes Hollister, Abercrombie, and most of the trendy places. She loves jewelry and giant sunglasses.
What you think they would really appreciate: She loves cutesy stuff – stickers, stuffed animals, etc. She loves things she can wear or decorate with. Oh, and she loves pictures – taking them and displaying them – so photo albums or frames would be good, too. I bet she’d love most anything.
What you think they would absolutely hate: Like I said, she doesn’t like sweets, so that’s not a good idea. She wouldn’t really like anything you can find at Hot Topic.
Any allergies or pet peeves: She has normal seasonal allergies, but nothing out of the ordinary or severe. She has pet peeves, but nothing you guys would encounter.
Clothing size: Medium, maybe large sometimes in shirts.
Shoe size: 6 or 6 1/2
Any wishlist(s): None that I know of.
Any blog(s): She’s never on Live Journal, but it is coles0841. Her MySpace is www.myspace.com/coles0841.
Mailing address (do not change this): Comment with your e-mail and I will send it to you.



Thanks, everyone!

She identifies as Christian, and I know she prays a lot and wears crosses sometimes. She was raised Baptist. She's not hardcore evangelical, but she's fairly religious.

Thanks!

I'm thinking that maybe I wrote the addy down wrong. Is there anyway you can mail it to me again?

Sure, I'll email it to you once I get to work this morning. Sorry about that. I'll double-check it, too. :)
