Walkin’ On Sunshine

Posted on

September was a big month for this little ol’ blog of mine: I opened up more sponsorship options, paid it forward bloggy-style, participated in my very first giveaway, and got nominated for not one, but two Sunshine Awards (my very first awards ever)! So obviously, I’m pretty stoked.

On Friday, Miss Kate gave me a Sunshine shout-out, and the very next day, the lovely Nina did the same. I’m feeling so honored right now!


Since they are separate awards with different questions and rules, I’m going to address each individually. I’ll start today with Kate’s, since her nomination was the first one I received.

I have to answer a list of questions provided by Kate, and the nominate 10 fellow bloggers to answer the same questions.

Super simple, so here we go:

Where were you born? In the suburbs of the Steel City – Pittsburgh, PA.

Do you prefer romantic comedies or suspense thrillers? Both – it depends on my mood, but I’m more likely to choose a suspense thriller when I have Mr. B to snuggle up with on the couch.

What is your favorite sport (to watch or participate in)? I love football, both college (Let’s go Mountaineers!) and professional (Steelers, duh). I also like watching hockey (Go Pens!) and playing tennis. And I love to wakeboard, does that count as a sport??

What is your favorite sound? This is a tough one. I’ll go with rustling leaves, peeper frogs or seagulls and crashing waves if I have to narrow it down.

Coke or Pepsi? I don’t drink a lot of pop, but Diet Pepsi every time.

Do you have a special talent? Umm…uhh…no. I can do this gross/oddball thing with my possibly-double-jointed pinkie toe, but I don’t think that counts. And it’s gross. So, no. No special talents for this girl.

PC or Mac? PC, I don’t have much experience with Macs.

What is your favorite vacation spot? Anywhere I haven’t already been. I love exploring new places and trying new things.

Do you collect anything? Not really. If Mr. B would let me I’d collect furry creatures (draft horses, goats, miniature ponies, miniature donkeys, baby alpaca…you know, the pets every girl should be able to bring home), but he’s a spoilsport like that. I used to collect porcelain masks, but they’ve just been taking up space in my parents attic since I left for college. I do have a pretty stellar wine cork collection going on, but that’s just because I like wine and managed to convince myself that I’ll eventually use them for a Pinterest craft.

If you could instantly be an expert in any field, what would it be? Wine. I think it would be so cool to be a sommelier at a fancy restaurant. Or photography. I wish I could capture and share all of the beautiful sights out there. Or psychology. I’d love to know what makes people tick. Or aviation. I want to fly a plane, but I also want to understand the physics behind it. Clearly, my interests are all over the place. I like to learn.

There are so many amazing blogs out there, but I had to narrow it down to ten. I really love all of these blogs and I want to recognize them each for the many positive things they contribute to the blogworld! My nominations for the Sunshine Award are:

Adventures of Kathryn

Always Ashten

Boone + Owl

Dog Hair is an Accessory

The Florkens

The Fussy Britches

The Girl Who Loved to Write

It’s All In The Details

Life Style Love

Mrs. Laura Beth

Stay tuned later this week for more Sunshine-y goodness when I answer Nina’s questions!
