Sunshine Award and Nominations

When Amy from Home Happy Home awarded me the Sunshine Award, I was super surprised and honored.  Amy whips up the most amazing home projects on a budget.  Hello, have you seen her basement reveal?  Head on over and show Amy some love.

                    This award is given to bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others.

Here are the rules;
  1. If you are nominated you must blog a post linking back to the person/blog who nominated you.
  2. You must answer some questions, nominate ten fellow bloggers and link their blogs to the post. If you get the award you can use the image above on your post or blog itself.
  3. You should comment on your nominees' blogs to let them know you nominated them.

Here are the questions;

Who is your favorite philosopher?

I only took a semester of philosophy in college.  I believe the class was at 8:30 AM on a Friday therefore I tried my best just to stay awake.  Sorry, I don't remember much. Now I'm feeling a little dumb.  Maybe I should revisit philosophy 101?

What is your favorite number?

I don't have an exact favorite number, but I love odd numbers.  7 is a favorite because it's my birthday day and also the day of our wedding anniversary.

What is your favorite animal?

Baxter, duh.

What are your Facebook and twitter urls?

Well, since you ask my Facebook is this and my Twitter is this.  I would love it if you'd take the time to follow me.  I'll try not to be anymore annoying than I am here on the blog.

What is your favorite time of the day?

It's a toss up. Right now I love my mornings to myself with my coffee, the blog, and Baxter.  But I also love dinner time when Jake gets home from work. :)

What was your favorite vacation?

I've been blessed to go on some pretty amazing vacations, but hands down my favorite was our honeymoon in Hawaii.  We went to the Big Island and Maui and had the best time exploring the islands, laying by the pool, and eating and drinking.

What is your favorite physical activity?

Depends on the season.  In the winter I like to downhill ski. Right now I'm into golf (Jake and I go a few times a week) and I recently took up running (training for a half marathon).  I also love to dance.

What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?

Who wants a non-alcoholic drink?  JK.  I like flavored seltzer water.  It's healthy and refreshing.

What is your favorite flower?

I really like tulips, hydrangeas, and roses.

What is your passion?

I have many passions some of which are taking care of our home, spending time with Jake, spoiling Baxter, traveling, golfing, reading, eating (yes that can be a passion) and learning.  My newest passions are this blog and home decorating.

My ten blogger nominees {in no particular order, but clearly I have a thing for Jessicas};
