I've Got Sunshine....

On a cloudy day.....Don't even pretend you weren't singing it!

Ashley at A Cup of Ash Tea nominated me for the Sunshine Award last week! I feel so special and honored. If you don't know Ashley, you must hop on over to her blog and check her out! I am pretty sure that if she didn't live all the way up north that we would be hanging out on the weekends having Mario Kart competitions and be best friends. Why haven't we invented a way to travel quicker (cheaply) yet?
the rules are:
1. Include the award logo in your post.
2. Link to the person who nominated you.
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
4. Nominate 10 bloggers to receive the award.
Ashley's Questions:
1) What is the best book you've read recently?
I have been reading the Harry Potter series and am currently on book 4. I have never read these books before or seen the movies, so I am amazed at how wonderfully they are written and how much I enjoy reading them. If you haven't given them a try, you really should. I thought they were lame kids books....but I thought wrong! (It hasn't been known to happen often....)
2) What's something that you do every day?
Wash my face. No matter how tired I am or how much I don't feel good, I ALWAYS wash my face before bed.
3) What are you most looking forward to this fall?
Football season, pumpkin spice lattes, Halloween decorations, apple everything, fun seasonal beers, cooler weather, Thanksgiving food, Black Friday shopping with my mom, watching the leaves change colors, the crisp morning air, fall clothes, fall colors, sooo much more! Did I mention cooler weather?!
4) Share a link to your favorite post you have ever written. 
I am not sure which post is my favorite, but I do like my 10 reasons why I will never be a grown up post I did last month when I turned 30.
10 Reasons I Will Never Be A Grown Up

5) If you had to live in a decade other than the current one, which would you choose?
The 1920's looked like fun with all the flappers and jazz music.

6) Starting with the oldest picture on your phone, what is the 6th photo you have saved?

My Gracie doodles! There was a 98% chance it was a dog picture....

7) If you could travel anywhere and money was no option, where would you go?
I would visit Europe. Eat in Italy, drink beer in Germany, go shopping in France and then come back to the US and go to Disney World!!!!

8) If you had to choose one food to eat the rest of your life, what would you pick?
Oh my that is a difficult one! Probably my mom's Pierogies. 

9) What was your favorite toy when you were a child?
My care bear. I took her EVERYWHERE!!! My grandma Jerry got her for me when I was 2 and I slept with that bear every night of my life until the year after I graduated college and got Gracie. Any stuff toy was game to Gracie...so I had to start keeping Love-A-Lot in my closet. She is still in my closet to this day!

10) Tell me something that you like about yourself. (:
I like that I am real. I don't ever try to be someone I am not. I would like to think others appreciate that about me too!

My 10 questions:
1. If you could be any animal on the planet, which would you choose and why?
2. What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
3. What is your favorite TV show of all time?
4. If you could have any job in the world and it didn't matter how much money you made or what qualifications you needed, what would it be?
5. What is your favorite holiday movie?
6. Suggest a new blog for me to read.
7. What is something that you are loving right now? (This could be anything! A new top, something on Pinterest, a book you are reading....anything!!!)
8. What is your favorite nail polish color?
9. What is your favorite season?
10. Tell me something that most people don't know about you.

  1. Um, Mario Kart every weekend? YES! Count me in! We need to have a little blogger IRL community so we can all be neighbors. It's not fair we live so far away! Or while we're at it we can be neighbors in the 1920's because that is a decade I've always loved too :)

    My phone is filled with pictures of my cats. And I'm sure if I had a dog as cute as Gracie face it'd be filled up with pictures of her too! Hehe. Jealous that you still have your care bear. I wish I would have kept my old toys, I'm finding myself on ebay lately trying to buy some of my older toys back... but it's not really quite the same as having the original. :)

  2. I'm posting my answers tomorrow! =)
