Sunshine Award


A few weeks ago I was awarded the Sunshine Award by Anna, from Bean Bug Crafts. If you haven't seen her blog you should check it out. She has all sorts of fun craft ideas and inspiration. She recently blogged about a graduation party she threw for her sister. The theme was Dr. Seuss' "Oh the Places You'll Go". So cute.

The Sunshine Award is given from bloggers to "bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere."



Here is how the award works:  




First, you should thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them. (Ahem...Bean Bug Crafts.)  Next, answer the following questions about yourself.  Then, choose 10 of your favorite bloggers and link their blogs to your post.  Be sure to let them know that you are nominating them for the award.  
Last, be sure to copy and paste the award to your blog!  

Here we go!

1.  Favorite color- Honestly this tends to change depending on my mood. However, I always seem to gravitate towards warm colors--mainly red.

2.  Favorite animal- dogs! We currently have a 10 year old Golden Retriever, Miles and a 12 year old Chocolate Lab named Charlie. They were our first babies and are the biggest teddy bears there ever were.

3.  Favorite number- Can't say that I've ever had one--but I do tend to lean towards even numbers for whatever reason.

4.  Favorite Drink- Diet Mt. Dew--although I am slowly converting to Iced Tea because I don't drink coffee and I need the caffeine but I know the tea is much better for me.
5.  Facebook or Twitter-Facebook. I know I am definitely in the minority but I actually haven't joined Twitter.

6.  Good book or good movie- I love a book that I can really get into but for whatever reason, reading makes me so tired that it takes me FOREVER to finish a book. Probably going to have to say movie.

7.  My passion?  I have always loved being creative--as a kid, in my classroom as a teacher, in my home as a mom and wife, and with my clients as an organizer.


8.  Giving or getting gifts- Giving for sure! 

9.  Favorite day- Friday--always has been. It has always been my most optimistic day and I often get the most done on that day vs. any other day of the week. There is something so motivating about wrapping up a long week (and having a couple days to 
relax).


10. Favorite flower- Gerber Daisies--any and every color. They are so cheerful and fun. 
Just makes me smile thinking about them.

Now that you know a little more about me it is my turn to pass this award onto 10 great newer blogs that I have recently discovered and would love to share will all of you (in no particular order). Congratulations and keep up the great work!!

2. Britni at Hubby Made Me

6. The Shabby Gals at Shabby Gals

  1. Congrats Susan! I love Gerber Daisies too, they are kind of a "treat" in my garden since it's not always quite sunshiny enough or warm enough here in AK. And I used to drink Diet Mountain Dew all the time, it's been years I wonder if I'd even like it now... lol :-)
