Sunshine Award...and everything you ever wanted to know about me!

Hey everybody!  I hope you are all doing well today.  The lovely and gracious Kelsey from Polished Prescription nominated me for the Sunshine Award! :)  Kelsey's blog is one of my favorites because she pays such close attention to detail.  You'd think she was studying to be a physician or something! :P  Kelsey was also my very first blogging friend to "like" my Facebook page, so that's awesome in itself!  Thanks Kelsey! :)

Here are the rules of the Sunshine Award:

- Thank the person who nominated you (that's a given!)
- Post the award logo on your blog
- Share 7 facts about yourself
- Nominate 5 or more other blogs that inspire you

Wow...okay, for the 7 super-interesting facts about myself:

1.  My picks for the last 2 foods on earth would be ice cream and Herr's potato chips.  As a matter of fact, Herr's just put me on their Facebook cover this week.  Is that awesome or what?

2.  My sister and I moved to Tennessee 23 years ago to break into the music business.  Then we remembered we had crippling stage fright.  OOPS!  Now we do our singing in church.

3.  I have written several dinner theater productions.  They're always comedies.  Go figure!

4.  I used to weigh almost 200 pounds.  Then I met a lousy guy who dumped me, and I lost my appetite when he broke my heart.  I lost 62 pounds, met a much better guy, and married him. ;) Heh, heh...

5.  My favorite movie ever is The Last of the Mohicans.  My dream came true last year when I went to the spot where they filmed the climactic mountain cliff scene.

6.  I hate feet.  I don't want you looking at mine, and I don't want to look at yours. :)

7.  When I think about particular days of the week or holidays, I see them in my head as a certain color.  Thanksgiving is always yellow.  Fridays are white.

My Sunshine Award nominations:

Nidia at Lit From Within - this girl is so full of ideas that she makes me feel lazy! :)

Emily at Em's Polish Paradise - the cutest thing about Emily is how she gets so excited about her polishes.  She's a joy! :)

Dani at  From Polish, With Love - Dani is something like 14 months pregnant and is STILL posting beautiful stuff! :)

Perfectly Painted - this young lady is one of the most encouraging friends out there for a new blogger like me...but bless her heart, I don't know her name!  She wants to be incognito, or I'm just not seeing it, LOL! :P

Dema at Dema Pixie - she has great photos and a thorough, succinct writing style.  You can't imagine that her house is ever messy. :)

So there it is.  I truly appreciate the award, Kelsey!  I enjoy my blogging friends so much!  Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day! :)


  1. Congrats on the award! It was interesting reading your facts too :)

    1. Thanks Lisa! I wanted to nominate you too, but somebody beat me to it! :)

  2. I also hate feet! I want to hurl when people post pics of their pedicures. Lol. I thinj it's awesome that you and you sis took a risk and moved to another state. Even though it did not go as planned, I am sure it had a silver lining. I want to move to another state for school but am terrified of doing so. Lol :)

    1. LOL...yeah...feet. My sister and I had a good experience. We were really young and had to grow up and be adults. :)

  3. Thanks so much!! Haha I had to read this post a few times to realize you nominated me! It really brightened my day :D

    1. Clare! Your name is Clare! Nice to meet you! :)

    2. Aww thanks! I'm so glad I found your blog :D

    3. Aww, me too! You'll find that blogging buds are the BEST!

  4. I LOVED reading your interesting facts. That's awesome that you have written dinner theatre productions. I bet they are great to see! You are so talented:)

    1.'re too sweet. My dream job would be on Broadway...singing AND acting goofy! :P
