Sunshine Award

Have you ever heard of the Sunshine Award? I love it! It’s an award given to fellow bloggers who inspire others, spread positivity, encouraging, or are creative and entertaining with their writing.

Well, I finally got nominated! Thanks, Karen! Go check her out!

Here are the questions she asked me:

What is the last movie you saw in the theater?

Holy cow! I don’t even remember! Having a new baby and moving over the summer kinda took any free time away to go see a movie. It’s definitely been months since we’ve gone to the theatre!

Who is your current celebrity crush?
David Tennant and Robert Downy Junior have been my crushes for ages!

“All About that Bass.” Do you love it or hate it and why?
I like the beat, but not necessarily the lyrics, although I do kinda think the lyrics are a little funny: “It’s ok to have a bigger butt! Guys like it!” Hahaha!

What advice would you give to someone who really, really needs to get back to the gym? (I’m asking for a friend…)
Bring your tablet and headphones, and escape into your own world. Ignore everyone else and focus on your music, blogs, studying, whatever!

What is your favorite thing about fall?
I love everything about fall: the food, the weather, the clothing, just the overall atmosphere. I even had my students do a formal paragraph on why they like fall!

Do you plan to dress up for Halloween, and if so, as what?
I’m not sure. We aren’t going trick-or-treating or to any parties. But, we will have trick-or-treaters come to us the first time, so I may gather things around the house to make a costume. Rhys does have a costume, though! He’ll be batman!

What TV show are you most excited about this fall?
PARENTHOOD! I’m so excited for this season, but also so sad that it’s the last season.

If you could change one thing about the blogoverse, what would it be?
Interesting question…but I’d have to say, not expecting money to come out of your pocket if you want to grow your blog. In an ideal blogoverse, it would just happen organically. (I know it does for some, but I believe that’s the exception to the sad rule.)

What keeps you blogging?
Definitely the community of blogging. I’m a bit shyer in real life, but I feel that I’ve developed quite a few friendships in blogging. I’ve met quite a few of the Utah bloggers I’m friends with online, but other bloggers I’ve become friends with are all over the country. I’d love to someday meet them!

What is the one blog we should ALL be reading?
Mine! JK. Definitely The Life of Bon. She’s very honest in her opinions, writes to engage, and I love hearing about her teaching and new mom adventures!

Baseball or Football?
Actually, neither. I’m not a fan of playing or watching either, but I will watch the Super Bowl because it’s a social event. I also have the perfect Super Bowl Dish: Crockpot Taco Stew! But, I’d rather watch or play soccer or volleyball!
All right. I tag:

  • Thanks for the nomination! I'll definitely start mulling over my answers! Although the last book I read was Nancy Mitford's "Love in a Cold Climate" and I felt fairly "meh" about that classic piece of British lit. What's your favorite David Tennant role?

    Scott and I were just talking about going to see a movie. I think the last time we were in a theatre was December!
    Thanks for the nomination! Can't wait to answer your questions.

  • Fun answers! I hope you get to a movie soon! And I love that Rhys is going to be Batman. He is my favorite superhero!

    Oh, and thanks for the gym advice. I'll try to get my butt in gear!

  • Thanks!

  • Doctor Who is my all time favorite!

  • Wow! Even in the toddler stage we won't get out much?

  • That's how I've gone to gyms. I'm in shape, but I'm embarrassed to work out in front of guys.

  • I love the blogging community.
