The ABCs of Nora

I don’t normally do memes but I have some new readers (hi, new readers and welcome!) plus I wanted to end the week on a happy/fun note, so this just made sense to me! That and a few of my favorite friends around the blog world have done this so I’m totally jumping on the bandwagon.

Age: 27

Bed size: Queen. I love it! Enough room for me to spread out and Jack in the mornings (he loves to sleep next time between the hours of 5am-when I get up, no idea why. He’s a funny dog).

Chore you dislike: Dusting.

Dogs: Yes, see above! I have one and my parents also have one. I would love to have another one someday

Essential start to your day: Sleeping in. No, not an option? Then waking up to a fun song when my alarm comes on, a nice shower and picking a killer outfit for the day.

Favorite color: Lately I’m into the Navy. Usually, it’s a pinkish hue.

Gold or silver: White gold or silver.

Height: 59

Instruments you play(ed): Piano, flute, piccolo. Not playing now but I used to and maybe could still squeak out a few flute notes.

Job title: Director of Support Services. In English: Contract, Client, Vendor Relations, Inside Sales, Marketing, Logistics and more

Kids: Knight has two; does this count?

Live: STL!

Mom’s name: On this blog? Darling. In real life its something different but I won’t share it here, though it’s a pretty name!

Nicknames: Way too many Nor, Nor-Nor, Beeps, Laylou, Lays, and a ton more.

Overnight hospital stays: Appendix my senior year in college. That was dreadful. Everything else has thankfully been outpatient.

Pet peeve: Overtakers.

Quote from a movie: Love actually is everywhere. Love Actually OR anything from You’ve Got Mail.

Righty or Lefty: Righty

Siblings: one younger brother who rocks.

Time you wake up: Ummm.. should be like 6 am on the weekdays but it never really is. More like 6:30 and sometimes 7, and yes, I’m always rushing around. I like my sleep. Weekends? Depends, anytime between 8-10, usually closer to 8 though. Which I hate.

Underwear: What about them? Do I like them? Sure. Especially if they are 5 for $25 at Victorias Secret. Or pretty colors. Or comfortable.

Vegetables you don’t like: Peas. Carrots. Mostly cause I’m super duper allergic to them.

What makes you run late: The Snooze button. Or trying to get in one last chore or errand before meeting friends/family. Oh, and traffic. (Seriously!)

X-Rays you’ve had: Left ankle, left hand, left shoulder (hmmm), and on my sinuses of all things!

Yummy food you make: Baked mostaccioli, spicy chicken + risotto, an amazing lasagna, cupcakes, and a variety of desserts. I’m kind of in love with cooking/baking again since I have such an appreciative audience these days.

Zoo animal favorite: Penguins, duh.

I hope you learned something new today; feel free to share any/all of your own on your blog or in the comments!
Happy Friday!
