Sunshine Award

Saturday, October 19, 2013

I have been loving reading Chelsea's blog Anchors Aweigh! She is so sweet! Yesterday she was nominated with the Sunshine Award and she nominated me as well. She has given me 11 lovely questions to answer.

1. If you could trade places with one person for a day, who would it be and why?

I would have to say John. I realize that he mostly tells me about his day and everything but we often get into discussions about how tiring his day is and why he wants to come home eat dinner and go to bed at 8:30. Boo! I think he sometimes likes to be a drama queen.

2. What is your all-time favorite TV show? *Bonus points if you say Friends ;)

NCIS has been my long running favorite TV show, but I've come across so many others that I also enjoy.

3. What is one talent you are thankful for?

This is kind of difficult, but I think dance would be one. So many times during high school I was frustrated and I would just dance it out.

4. We all know I am obsessed with babies. What are your favorite baby names?

John and I often talk about this and I thought we had agreed on Tanya Alexis, but he later reneged on Tanya. Apparently he doesn't like the name. But he definitely wants Alexis for his cousin who was killed in a car crash before she could even turn 2 years old.

5. What is your favorite holiday of the year?

St. Patrick's day! What can I say, I'm half Irish! But on a serious note, one of my favorites is Thanksgiving. Every year it gets even less credit than it deserves. But I think we should all be thankful for what we have.

6. What advice would you give the 12 year old version of yourself? For example, I would tell myself to put down the clunky doc martins and wear a shoe actually made for a girl, but I digress.

My advice would be to not get too wrapped up in the friends you have now, if they aren't nice to you it doesn't matter. You will make new ones soon.

7. Name three things you can't live without.

God, my family and my doggies

8. If you could relive any moment of your life, what would it be and why?

I don't really think I have a moment I would want to relive. None that I can think of now at least. I just try to enjoy everything as much as I can in the present (I think I've been watching a little too much Continuum and futuristic shows)

9. If you only had $20 to spend at Target, to which section would you go?

Probably the stationary or cosmetics. Those are the two things I've been really into lately.

10. What is one thing most people do not know about you?

I suffered from depression for about a year. Some people know, but most don't.

11. What is one fashion trend you wish would come back in style. For example, overalls. Those babies were so comfortable!

Oh, overalls were comfortable! I still have a pair in my closet. I guess that would be my answer.

I think I was supposed to nominate 11 blogs and write out some questions, but I don't want to just choose 11 blogs. I love all my readers and the blogs that I read so just know y'all are great!

  1. I am obsessed with the stationary section at Target haha.

  2. Isn't Target the best? I need to visit the stationary section next time I am there. And I am so jealous you still have a pair of overalls! Best invention ever. Loved reading your answers!
