Sunshine Award

The beautiful Jen from The Adventures Of Our Army Life, who is currently enjoying some family time in Las Vegas, nominated me for this beauty:

Being sick and feeling like a blop, this award was just a little ray of sunshine in my sickness-ridden days  ;-)

Here are the rules:

1. Include the award logo in your blog post.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
4. Nominate 10 bloggers to receive the award.

Here are the 10 Questions Jen posted:
 1. What is your biggest fear?
Anything happening to the family. This is truly my biggest fear. They are my heart and my life, what would I be without them? 2. Are you a night owl or an early bird?
A very natural night owl.. But an early bird by necessity more often than not I'm afraid. 3. If you could change one thing from your past what would it be?
I believe in the butterfly effect, so I actually wouldn't change anything. Maybe be more careful to avoid some smaller mishaps. What I'd definitely tell my younger self is to be more relaxed.
4. Do you have any pets, if so what kind?
No, no pets yet unfortunately. But we'll have two cats, soon  ;-) 5. Did you do everything you wanted to do this summer?
I wanted to go to the pool more often than I did, and to a theme park, but besides those, yes, I did everything I've planned! 6. What is your favorite song?
I don't have a favorite song, but tons of songs I love. Today, it's maybe "Imagine" by John Lennon  ;-) 7. If you were on a deserted island what 3 things would you take with you?
A ton of sun protection, an e-reader, filled to the brim with books, sunglasses 8. Would you rather cook or go out to eat?
I like to cook, but at the moment I'd rather go out, just to avoid the clean-up.
9. What is your dream car?
For myself? The Smart Roadster, such a cute little car! Right now, I love the family van we have, very spacious. 10. If you could have any job in the world what would it be?
Work as a translator of fiction.

Here are my 10 Questions:
1. What is on your to-do list for fall?
2. Have you bought any holiday presents yet?
3. Pumpkin Spice Latte or Peppermint Mocha?
4. What is your favorite book?
5. Share something embarrassing.
6. What is your favorite animal.
7. What was your favorite toy as a child?
8. Apples or pears?
9. Are you going to celebrate Halloween?
10. Were you a mommy's or daddy's girl?

I'm going to nominate those 10 wonderful bloggers out there:

Melissa at Home On Deranged
Lizzi at Considerings
Pinky at P!nkPers!stence
Kristi at Finding Ninee

Can't wait to see all your answers, ladies!


  1. I'm a night owl as well! :) I'm so glad you accepted the award, hugs friend.

    1. For whatever reason, come 10 pm, I get a flash of energy.. Not so good if I have to get up at 6am ;-) Enjoy your time in LV!!

  2. Why thank you! I could use a little sunshine today. And a topic for a post. :)

    1. You are so very welcome, Christine! Your posts were a lot of sunshine to me, especially the pig chasing ones ;-) When are you getting new piggies?

    2. New pigs won't come until April. Sorry. Hopefully the chickens will get into some mischief I can write about. :)

    3. Given how smart pigs are, I trust that they will get into quite some mischief.. Enjoy your down-time ;-)

  3. Aww.... Thanks so much for nominating me!!! I JUST was nominated by another blogger and posted my post yesterday so I won't be answering your questions. :-( I do want to say a huge THANK YOU, though! I really appreciate it! :-)

    1. You're welcome, Susannah! You totally deserve it ;-)

  4. Oh COOL! This is so sweet of you, Stephanie - especially given my Sunshine post the other day! I shall answer this in my 7 Quick Takes this week. Thank you :)

  5. How awesome is that?! Thank you so very much! :)

    You totally deserve it. And I totally am with you on a little ray of sunshine! I'm super encouraged, really. :)

    1. You, too, deserve this award, Kate! Thank you so much for your continued support over the last weeks!
