Twice as Nice

     If you’ve been reading for pretty much any length of time, you ought to know how much I love these adorable blog tagging games!  A few days ago, I was lucky enough to be honored by two – the Sunshine Award and a regular old Q&A game. 
     Mrs. Cuckoo over at The Cuckoo’s Nest nominated me for the Sunshine Award!

Here are the rules for the Sunshine Award:

1. Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog.
2. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
3. Nominate 10-12 other fabulous bloggers.
4. Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.
5. Share the love and link the person who nominated you.

Here are the 10 Sunshine Award questions:

Favorite color?
 
Orange, definitely.  It’s the happiest color I can think of (and it’s just a bonus that it happens to be pretty much the state color of Tennessee)!

Favorite animal?

I love dogs and cats (so cuddly)!  I know it’s kind of cliché, but they’re just adorable!

Favorite number?
 
1.  As long as I can remember, it’s always been 1 – I’m sure that speaks volumes about my personality…

Favorite non-alcoholic drink?
 
“Always, Coca-Colaaaa…” (and in case you aren’t quite as obsessed as me, that was a Coca-Cola commercial jingle from a billion years ago). Just to clarify – NOT diet, NOT cherry, NOT caffeine free, NOT Pepsi – real deal Coke.

Prefer Facebook or Twitter?

I don’t have a Twitter, so I guess that means Facebook, by default, but I don’t really care for either of them all that much (I never update my Facebook). 

My passion?

That’s such a big word; I’ve never thought of it really.  I like a lot of things, but I’m honestly not sure what my passion is.  I’ll work figuring it out, promise!

Prefer getting or giving presents?
I love both of them!  I don’t really have to explain getting, but as for giving…there is something so sweet about spending time thinking about someone and what they might love and then seeing how they react when you give it to them. 

Favorite pattern?

Plaid.  I wouldn’t use it in a humongous way in my home, but I love plaid shirts and quilts – it’s so cozy.

Favorite day of the week?

I love Sundays.  There is just something about going to church in the morning and then relaxing in the afternoon that makes the day for me.  (Also…Sunday afternoon naps and/or Lifetime movie marathons!)

Favorite flower?
I don’t know if they are my favorite, but I love hydrangeas.  They just say summertime in the South to me, and they’re so dainty.

Thank you so much!

     As if that wasn’t enough to make me smile, Megan over at The Remodeled Life tagged me in a Q&A game!

1. What was your favorite childhood toy?
Probably baby dolls…and they were all named Amy – I’m not sure why.

2. What was your first car?
I had a Jeep Cherokee almost identical to the one I have now.  It was an odd indigo color (the one I have now is blue).

3. What is your favorite type of cheese?
All of it.  I could never pick a favorite!

4. If you could spend a weekend in any American City - which one would it be?
I haven’t been to a ton of places.  I’ve always wanted to see Chicago.  I really like St. Louis too.

5. What's the biggest fish you ever caught?
I didn’t actually get it all the way out of the water, and I don’t know what it was, but I caught a really heavy, really mean fish once that broke two lines!

6. If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Hmmm…I’m not sure.  I know that’s kind of a cop out, but I have no idea!

7. Who is the person you would most like to meet and why?
Right now it’s probably Kate Middleton.  She’s so pretty  and classy!

8. If you could go back in time, what would you tell your 16 year old self?
I wouldn’t tell myself anything…I would ask how I did my eyeliner – because I can almost never get it right anymore!

9. When was the last time you talked to your childhood best friend?
A few months ago to tell her about getting engaged!

10. What's your favorite Holiday?
Christmas!  Definitely!

11. What is one thing you have never done but want to?
Go to Europe.

Thank you!

     Now I know that the point of these games is to tag other people, but I’m feeling a little lazy going to do something a little different today!  If you are reading this then you are tagged!
     Thank you both so much! Your blogs are both so great, and I am looking forward to reading for a long time!
