The sunshine award is an award given to those who inspire us and bring sunshine into our lives.
I was nominated for The Sunshine Award by Ameliorer la Vie
I'm always a bit surprised when someone nominates me for something... Because I'm like..."Wait wha?"... "Me?"... And then I think "Hey, how cool is it that someone even thought of ME!?" :)
There are a few simple rules:
*Include the award logo in your blog post
*Link to the person who nominated you
*Answer 10 questions about yourself
*Nominate other bloggers
My 10 questions:
1) What's your favorite brand of makeup overall?
I don't actually wear make up! Okay wait... I might slap some on if I'm going out for the night. But I haven't worn make up for about 6 months (I'm not kidding)... I love feminine and I love girly...I love jewelry and clothes... I just rarely wear make up. I never wear it to work and I don't wear it on a daily basis. I was blessed with very nice skin and blue eyes. I let it work for me. If I do wear make up... It's only eye liner and mascara. I don't mess with eye shadows, lipstick, blush and foundation. I don't want that all over my face!
2) What's the most fun thing you've done in the past two weeks?
I haven't had ANY fun in the last 2 weeks.
This is almost embarrassing! But I work and on the weekends... I usually spend one day shopping and doing random "stuff" and the other day is spent cleaning!
Double Ouch. I need to have a word with myself!
I've made sure the children have had fun... Parties, fun nights at school, days out... as a mom does, so I have had fun with my angels, just not much "Me time" fun or adult fun.
3) Name something that you are saving up for.
I'm saving for my children and I to move to the UK and to travel.
4) What do you hope to accomplish this fall?
I hope to downsize a bit more, and to get most of my Christmas shopping done.
5) Do you have a workout routine? If so, what is it?
I do not currently have a workout routine, but I know if I did, I would feel so much better about myself. I honestly love to go for walks but in the State of Texas the mosquitoes are so horrendous I just can't take walking out doors until it's cooler out.
6) Describe one of your pet peeves.
Rude people. Rude people irritate me so much that I will often tell complete strangers in public that they are being rude! I'm kind... I'm polite, and I am not rude. I expect the same in return.
7) Which celebrity do you think is very stylish?
Celebrity's? Ohhhh You mean the people that don't actually LIVE in the real world?
I don't really care about style and rich people... If you want to impress me... Do something for the Planet, Save an animal... Help a child.
8) How do you motivate yourself?
It depends on how I need to be motivated. If it's to get out of bed for work on Monday morning... I remind myself that I can't do much without a paycheck :)
If it's to stop eating sugar... I remind myself how awful I feel with it in my diet.
I self talk a lot!
9) What upcoming movie are you dying to watch?
Hmmmmmm. I used to enjoy movies a lot more, now I find most of them worthy of an eye roll... Though I am actually looking forward to the new Hunger Games movie. I enjoyed those books.
Oh and the Dr. Who 50th Anniversary special... whooohooo!
I'm always up for a Sci-Fi or a decent comedy!
10) What is something about your blog that you are proud of?
That it helps to keep me grounded and it's shown me the path to some very awesome women!
There are so many women that blog out there that I completely and totally admire.
But these woman... I've followed them for some time now and they are just so extra-ordinary, all in their very own ways.

One of the reasons that I love the blogs that I follow is because I've grown emotionally from, learned from and have just over all enjoyed following them... They bring out the best in me. They are thought provoking and for the travelers out there, I love to live through them and decide if I want to journey in their footsteps!
