This game went around a few weeks ago, but I missed the boat that time and get to play this time! The adorable Emily at Vineyard Vogue gave me the letter "N" to post ten of my favorite things that begin with that letter. If you'd like to play (and missed the boat last time too) let me know in a comment.
I had a hard time with this letter, not sure why. But- here are ten of my favorite "N" things.
Nuzzling. Early on weekend mornings when Boy doesn't have to work and there is nothing pushing us out of bed.
Napping. This could be one of my favorite things, period. As an undergrad, I had secret couch in the Commons that I would nap on every day after early morning practice. If a friend needed me, she knew where to find me. I currently wish I had a cot under my desk, George Costanza style.
Nature. I love being outside when the weather is nice. There is a state park right by where Boy lives and we often take walks or hike in there. I also really enjoying trail runs- I think they are truly cathartic. I'm so focused on not tripping on a tree root, that the time flies by. On one of my runs, I saw a dear and her doe just standing near the trail starring at me like I was crazy. It was so startling and pretty!
NPR (National Public Radio). I know this makes me a bit of a loser, but it's about the only thing I listen to on the radio. It's the best way to get news quickly and succinctly and there are no commercials!
Nuggets (the chocolate ones from Hershey). Mmmmmmmm!
Novels. I love reading and could spend hours cuddled up reading. My ideal vacation is sitting on the beach, drinking umbrella drinks and reading books. My all time favorites are: The Catcher in the Rye and the Red Tent. Currently, I'm reading Gloria. A while back I asked for book suggestions and Victoria at This English Girl's Life recommended Gloria. So far, I am absolutely in love with it and it is really hitting home. It's about a girl in the 1960s during the summer after college and before she heads to Grad school.
Naked. Awkward, yes, but also true. I love to be naked when no on else is around. If I lived by myself I would sleep naked every night.
Napa Valley wine. (ok, this is really a stretch) but I really love wine and none of my favorites start with the letter N. So, I improvised. Some of my favorite memories come from bottles of wine shared with girlfriends. I even collect the corks from important moments in my life, like big dates with Boy. Luckily, I was able to snag a wine cork from Mrs. Stilletos wedding day and add it to my collection!
Night time. I think its the most peaceful time of the day. In the summer, I love to be outside when night falls. In colder months, I really enjoy curling up by myself before bed- it's my me time!
NBC (the channel). Except for LOST, which is on ABC, all of my favorite shows are on NBC. Law and Order: SVU, The Office, and Biggest Loser. And of course...I love the Today Show--also on NBC.
Ok, that's all. Let me know if you want a letter!
