FAVORITE THING ABOUT BEING MY MOM?
Being able to call whenever I feel like it, tell you things that are sometimes a secret, shopping is always the best, and sharing food recipes or food related stories. Always a listener when I need it with a good answer or help to me.
WHAT'S A DAY IN THE LIFE OF NANCY PETRONE?
Up early, coffee, newspaper and its puzzles, workout with trainer, a walk in the neighborhood, phone calls with children, lunch with friends, a PEO meeting, packing a suitcase for Oregon, or unpacking, laundry, a glass of wine, make dinner, talk with my husband, then watch tv, especially the HGTV station. Life is good!
WHAT'S YOUR GREATEST ATTRIBUTE?
Happy and positive disposition.
Favorite thing about living in Palo Alto? You're moving to Oregon soon - what are you most excited about?
Being able to walk out the door on almost any given day and enjoy the great weather, beautiful trees and wonderful neighborhood.
Living in Eugene where we will be right down the street from the University of Oregon and being a part of all the action. I love knowing that I can have the opportunity to be in both places whenever I want!
IF YOU COULD ONLY HAVE ONE KIND OF FOOD AND DRINK FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Chocolate has to be the food, in any form, and my dear Chardonnay!
AM I YOUR BEST FRIEND? WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NICKNAME THAT YOU CALL ME?
My best friend had to be my sister as she was always a phone call away until she passed away. You and your other two sisters are my current best friends, and I call you Carlycakes!!
WHAT'S YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE?
I love wearing workout pants for leisure, and when dressing up, jewelry, hair and always makeup.
FUNNIEST MOMENT WITH ME THAT YOU CAN REMEMBER?
Driving to Balboa with you and my leg in a cast. Having to drive part way myself with the cast on my left leg. Pretty funny!!
Be happy and try to see the positive in people and everyday challenges!
