The Sunshine Award

I have received a beautiful award from my new blogging friend Shanique at Belize Naturalist Adventures of a Willow Wimp (love the name). Thank you so much Shanique. I feel so honored to be included on your list.

The Rules that go along with receiving the Sunshine Award are:
  • Display the Award (which I will proudly do)
  • Nominate 10 fellow bloggers and let them know you have nominated them. (I am going to change this up a bit and nominate ALL of my readers because they all deserve a little Sunshine of their own)
  • Answer a list of questions so that my friends can get to know me better.
Here is where I am going to once again shake things up. I guess I just don't want to follow the rules today. To all of my readers I ask that you answer these same questions in the comment section, then we can all get to know you a little better. And once again thanks to Shanique. You rock, girl!

  1. Favorite color? I am currently really partial to the color purple!
  2. Favorite animal? I am really not sure that I have a favorite animal. I love horses, dogs, kitties.
  3. Favorite number? Number 9! That is how many grand kids I have.
  4. Favorite non-alcoholic drink? I am a Pepsi girl
  5. Favorite alcoholic drink? I like ice cold beer and a good sweet wine. I won't turn down a margarita or a screwdriver either....
  6. Facebook or Twitter? I Facebook some. I don't understand Twitter at all!
  7. My passions? My passions are my husband and family
  8. Giving or receiving gifts? I love to receive. Buying gifts for others always stresses me out.
