Sunshine Blogger Award

Saturday, September 19, 2015

Julie at Jewels Wandering nominated me for the sunshine blogger award. I love her blog of awesome travel! Also I try MY VERY hardest to answer questions when I get nominated because the questions are fun to answer. You are really supposed to nominate 11 bloggers! Aah the pressure. I am horrible at that. And they are supposed to link back to you and you are supposed to write your own 11 questions. So I'm just going to borrow Julie's questions!  
I am going to nominate my friend Sandy at Confessions of a Sane Mama. She just started blogging and she shares some funny stuff! She and I have been friends since middle school! so crazy. 
And also Mckenna at of  Seas and Sundry I just love her heart and her writing.
Anyways- here are the q&a's.

1:  If you could be one flavor of ice cream, which one would you be and why? 
I'm not sure I would pick an actual flavor- but hook me up with a pecan mudslide from Dairy Queen any day. Salty and sweet. so good!
2:  What are your nicknames? What do you prefer to be called?
I was called "sissy" growing up. My name is so short that I really never had any nicknames, my little niece calls me "shooshi" because she couldn't pronounce sissy. lol. 
3:  What is the strangest thing you believed as a child?
I feel silly answering this, but as a teenager a very close friend of mine had me absolutely CONVINCED that there were bodies buried at the Italian American club that his dad was the president of. I still kinda believe it to this day. Italian Mafia anyone? ha ha
4:  What does high maintenance mean to you?
I would say it means putting all your effort in to your appearance and how "things" look. I am NOT high maintenance at all- lol I like to look put together but I also love top knots and sweats :)
5: What is your one constant daydream?
I really want to eventually speak at christian women's conferences. It's a big dream of mine to encourage other women in their story!
6:  What are the top three qualities that draw you into someone new?
kindness, being genuine, and also I have to like how they react and behave towards my babies. I'm a mama bear I guess :) 
7:  Do you remember your dreams? Did you dream last night?
I took a pill for my back last night so i was out cold, so no dreaming for me. But a lot of the time I do remember my dreams.
8:  What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?
coffee and letting the dog out. also Thank you Jesus for another day <3 p="">
9:  What are your best characteristics?
Patience and maybe kindness. I really believe in being kind always. always. always.
10:  Would you break the law to save a loved one?
Honestly, it would depend. On who it was and what I had to do. For my kids- definitely!
11: Any new and exciting things you would like to share?
Nothing new over here. I wish I had something awesome to share though! I will say only 2 weeks until the Balloon Fiesta and I. CAN. NOT. WAIT! My 20 month old is going to be ridiculously thrilled!
