It’s a Sunshine Day!

It’s a Sunshine Day!

Everybody’s laughing!  Everybody seems so happy today!  That’s a Brady Bunch reference just in case you didn’t get that one. . . .The end of the weekend/beginning of the week is always so tough.  Fun times are over and it’s back to work with an entire week ahead before you can sleep late and do whatever you want all day.  So that’s why I decided to start this Monday off with a little bit of sunshine!  That is, the Sunshine Award!

The Sunshine Award is an award circulated among bloggers to let other bloggers know that they brighten their day. I think this is such a great message and a great way to connect with the people whose words are just as meaningful in our life as those of your friends, family and colleagues whom you see all the time.

I was nominated by Holly from Eat Great Be Great.  She writes a great blog about healthy living and eating.  I especially love the fact that she is a big Zumba enthusiast like me! Thanks so much Holly! 🙂

So here are The Rules:

1.) Include the award logo in your blog post.  See above.

2.) Link to the person who nominated you.

3.) Answer 10 questions about yourself.

4.) Nominate 10 bloggers and let them know by leaving a comment on their blogs.

                                                                                                                                                                                  

So here goes with Holly’s 10 questions!

1.) Any pets?  

Nope!  I have a Bonsai plant and that isn’t doing too well so . . .

2.) Favorite flavor of ice cream?  

Wait, I have to pick just one!?!  Oh this is so hard.  I love anything coconut so I would say that but I’ve also been eating a lot of the Hubs’ moose tracks that he keeps ordering this summer!

Ice cream

3.) Do you prefer cooking or baking?

Oh definitely cooking!  I like to think I’m a pretty good cook but I really don’t bake much.  It’s just not an essential for me.  I don’t crave baked goods very much so the effort of having to actually do the baking . . . no thanks.  Although I did get a beautiful pink Kitchenaid mixer for our wedding that I should use more!

4.) What is your favorite form of exercise?

Ok I love most forms!  My favorite is probably dance classes and barre classes.  I am a Zumba and Physique 57 devotee.  But really I enjoy almost anything except running.  I’m sorry don’t hate me!  I love runners, I’m just always in pain when I run.  It’s so tiring!

5.) What’s your Zodiac sign?

Aquarius baby!  I love the water signs!

6.) What’s your favorite vegetable?

Well I LOVE avocados but I think they are technically a fruit.  So I guess I would choose sweet potatoes!

7.) What are five things you can’t live without?

Well, number one is definitely The Hubs!  I also can’t live without plenty of beach time, tons of chapstick, my iPhone, a good book and a good glass of wine.

Oh and coffee.  Duh.

Beach 7

8.)  What’s your favorite thing about blogging?

As the Sunshine Award suggests, the people!  Bloggers are seriously amazing people and I can’t even tell you how nice it is to feel like you are a part of a community that values the same things you do.  Plus, I have NEVER met a mean blogger! 🙂

9.) Who is your favorite actor?

This is tough because I’m not sure I can say I have one actor that I really like the best but I have been loving Breaking Bad and am excited for the final episodes so maybe I’ll say Bryan Cranston.  He’s great in that series!

10.) Favorite place to relax?

See above– the beach!! 🙂

                                                                                                                                                                                   

My 10 Questions

1.) Where is the best place you’ve ever traveled?

2.) If you could only eat one thing for an entire week, what would it be?

3.) What’s your favorite book?

4.) What’s YOUR favorite form of exercise?

5.) If you could live in any city in the world, where would you live?

6.) What’s your favorite kind of flower?

7.) Atlantic or Pacific?

8.) What would you do if you won the lottery?

9.) Why did you start blogging?

10.) What would your perfect day look like?

    Thanks for nominating us! I also need the beach – too bad I moved away from the coast and to the midwest. At least we have a big lake here! Happy Monday!

    Awwww, thanks Brittany! I can’t wait to write my post now. 🙂

    And i completely agree with the cooking over baking…I always find that baking has more clean up involved.

    I agree that the people are the best thing about blogging! It’s such a fun community.
    We have so much in common based on your answers. I’m actually not big on running but because I gave up my gym membership, I decided to sign up for a few races to keep me motivated to do cardio at home. It’s fun to have a goal to work towards but I’ll likely stop at a 10k because it doesn’t feel good (in my opinion) to put stress on your joints for that long. It’s just not as fun as other workouts but I like the challenge right now.

    I loved learning more about you and thanks again for nominating me! 🙂
