Hi There! Nicole here, to tell you a little more about myself. Hopefully you’ve already read my blog introduction, if not, make sure you check it out! Now, we’ll delve a little deeper into why I love all things that are cute. What better way to do that than a little Q & A?

Let’s get started with some of the basics:

Q: Favorite place to go on a Saturday afternoon?
A: The dog park! I absolutely LOVE the dog park! I could spend hours there, with the right group of dogs. And if there’s a puppy, Oh My Goodness, DAY MADE! 

I am blessed enough to live near the park below that happens to have a dog park!

Q: What’s your dream car?
A: My dream car is a Tesla Model S. These cars are GORGEOUS and Eco-friendly! And in case you didn’t know, the Model S is also super safe. Seriously, it tested 5.4 stars out of 5 (what?!) and has the best safety rating of any car ever tested.

If you want to learn more about this amazing “Magical Space Car,” I highly suggest reading the hilarious Cartoonist’s Review of the Tesla Model S by The Oatmeal.

What do you like the most about your job?
Currently I work as an Account Manager at RepairPal in San Francisco. I like that I’m able to assist and educate others within my job. I enjoy being an advocate for my customers, and I love hearing their success stories!

Also, I like that my job has helped me learn more about the auto repair industry. I no longer have any issue talking with auto mechanics. I even know some “shop talk” and to ask if they’re ASE Certified and offer a warranty.

The next time you need to take your car in for an oil change or repair, try using to find a trusted & certified mechanic. You can also look up general repairs to get an estimate for what the repair should cost. Be informed, and don’t get ripped off! 😉

Q: What’s your favorite salty snack?
A: Pickles! I absolutely love pickles! I recently discovered a deli that has the best cucumber, tomato, and onion salad. It’s so sour, crunchy, and overall amazing. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it, and I’ve become a regular at the deli!

Q: Where do you most want to travel, but have never been?
A: Thailand looks phenomenal. Apparently their hotels are pretty awesome, there are lots of beautiful beaches, and you can visit a multitude of animals at the Elephant Nature Park or by going on a Tiger Temple Tour. Also, I recently discovered how much I love Thai food. The curry covered vegetables, crunchy peanuts, and sweet sauces make my mouth dance in happiness!

Additional places I would like to travel: Italy, Greece, Japan, Australia, and Costa Rica

 If money was no object, what would you do all day?
A: Play with puppies! Seriously, I would do that now if it paid better and the puppies didn’t poop all day. Haha!

Q: What is the longest car trip you have ever taken?
A: 6 days! Well, we broke the trip into 10 – 12 hour days with breaks every few hours. My husband and I have driven across the country THREE times. West Virginia ~> California, California ~> West Virginia, and our FINAL move from West Virginia ~> California – with many stops in-between.

My favorite stop along the way was Denver, CO. The mountains and clouds captivated me with their beauty. And we also had killer cheeseburgers that night!
