Sunshiny Day


My friend Phyllis at Just Bcauz nominated me for the Sunshine Award a couple of days ago. Since I was gone, I am just now getting to this.

The rules are:

  • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog.
  • Link to the person who nominated you.
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself.
  • Nominate other bloggers.
  • Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.

Drum roll please...


1. What is your favorite color?
Purple—the royal, majestic, deep purple.  Not the overly blue-y or overly red-y purple.

2. What is your favorite animal?
None! I am allergic to everything, and I am terrified of dogs.

3. What is your favorite number?
6—but I do love most even numbers. Sometimes odd numbers freak me out. Smile

4. Favorite non-alcoholic drink?
Double chocolately chip blended cream frappuccino

5. What is your favorite alcoholic drink?
I don’t have one. I don’t drink alcohol….never have.

6. Facebook or Twitter?
Facebook—because I get to keep up with all the “drama” and “gossip” without 90 minute phone calls! LOL

7. What are your passions?
Reading, writing, singing, loving my family, serving God

8. Prefer getting or giving presents?
I love to give gifts.

However, I like getting gifts too. I collect salt-and-pepper shakers. At the moment, I have a couple hundred sets. There are no duplicates, and I haven’t bought a single set for myself!! (I have picked some of them out, but I have never bought them for myself!)

9. What is your favorite city?
I really don’t know. When I visit somewhere that city becomes my favorite while I am there, but when I get home, home is my favorite place. So yesterday, Myrtle Beach was my favorite place….until we left. Now that I’m back at home, I am so glad to be back in my bed, my shower, my sofa, my routine!

10. What are your favorite TV shows?
In no particular order...Melissa and Joey, Sister Wives, Long Island Medium, CSI (all of them), Dance Moms, Duck Dynasty….I have a list of shows I DVR each week to watch later. Smile

Finally, I bequeath the Sunshine Award to the following fellow bloggers:

Pamela at Troop Petrie—Her love of family and support of her military husband inspire me.


Amber at Our Blessings and Journeys—She is my niece by marriage. She has done great things with her family—even through a few moves for jobs and other reasons!


A fellow teacher at  The World from My Basement—Her attitude is always upbeat. Her products from the basement are outstanding!


Leah at Single Infertile Female—Her story inspires me. (If you haven’t read her story, you should…she wrote a book about it.)


A fellow Girl Scout Leader at Girl Scout Leader 101—She gives me great ideas to use with my girls. She also supplies “food for thought”.
