Some Sunshine Things

Naming posts might be the hardest thing ever ...

I'm back home from my quick work trip and boy do I miss it! Work doesn't quite seem like a chore when blue beaches are staring at you even as you stand in the court building. I had to take a pic from my iPad when I was leaving because the water just looked so yummy!

Unedited. All those colours are real. And stunning

Anyway,  yesterday morning, Meagan who blogs at All the Joys nominated me for a Sunshine award. Thanks again Meagan! The way it works is that I'm supposed to post 11 random facts about myself and then answer 11 questions from Meagan! I'm always down for divulging random tidbits so here goes...

1. When I sneeze I sound like a small injured animal. Its the most high pitched sneeze ever.

2. I have the shortest toes ever. My little toe is tiny.

3. I have a doggie named Caesar but he lives with my parents because my apartment doesn't allow dogs. I have tried to fight this case ... I will continue to try haha  :(

4. I've always wanted 4 children. But, there is a catch! I want 4 SONS! If I were to have a daughter first or second, the number of children I want drops to 2. I just don't think I can mentally handle more than one or two daughters so I wont ever chance it. (Can you blame me though? I only went to girls schools and I have no brothers). 

5. My favourite fruit is watermelon.

6. I have the same cell phone number that I've had since I first got a cell phone at 16 years old.

7. I can live without chocolate or sweets but juice ... Juice, I struggle with giving up.

8. I have weird eating quirks. I don't drink milk but Ill eat some things that contain milk; I don't eat tomatoes but Ill eat ketchup (once it is already on something ... ketchup by itself? *gag*). 

9. I love wine. and scotch.

10. I love basketball (I'm watching Game 2 of the finals as we speak)

11. I used to be able to really sing. Acid reflux took care of that. If I sing too high or for too long, Ill lose my voice. So I don't sing.
1.  How long have you been blogging?
I started in February so I'm in my fifth month. Not long at all.

2.  What is your favourite part about blogging?
Cliché but most definitely the people.

3.  Do you like where you live?  If no, where would you like to live?
I do love where I live but if I had to move it would be to London (love, love, love) or NYC. My lovely sis lives in Australia and while I'm excited to visit I couldn't live there because its sooooo far from everything and everyone I know. 

4.  What is your favourite TV show - of all time?
WOW of all time? I can't answer this I watch too much TV! I used to love Fresh Prince of Bel Air when I was younger.

5.  Dogs or cats?  Why?
Dogs. They are more open to cuddles and wild play. Cats are too moody. 

6.  What is your favourite season?
Where I live there are two seasons and if you didn't know the difference, you wouldn't know the difference. If I were in a 4 season country it would be Fall.

7.  Are you an early bird or night owl?
Night Owl

8.  What do you think is the best and worst thing about being a woman?
Best thing: The ability to grow and carry tiny humans inside of us
Worst thing: Every month our bodies feel the need to remind us of that fact. Touché lady parts, touché.

9.   If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
hmmm ... Ill have to think about it.

10.  If you were given the opportunity to go back in time and change one thing in your life, would you?
I know I'm supposed to say no way I love everything, life is splendiferous and yada yada. But I don't believe in bullshitting my readers so yes if I had the chance I might go back and fix/change a couple things even though I have a lot to be grateful for. I'm human.

11.  Coke or Pepsi?
Coke but I don't hate Pepsi.

And that's it for the questions!

I'm also supposed to nominate 11 bloggers and give them in turn 11 questions to answer. I know however that a lot of these ladies probably have already received this award. Soooo instead I'm just going to list 11 of my fave ladies and Ill ask that you go check them out and maybe drop them a line. 

P.S. if you ladies want , you can answer the same questions I did above! They were fun!

  1. I am the same way! Ketchup good, salsa good, tomatoes blech! Bizarre.

    Thanks for the nomination, I'm in your part of the world!!!! :)

  2. Dogs are infinitely better than cats. I have both, too.

    I have one daughter, no sons, and two sisters. Girls are TOUGH. If we were to have another, and it turned out to be a girl, I'll just be thankful they'll be 8+ years apart.

  3. Can I tell you that you are SO right that naming posts is the hardest parts? AMEN. I changed the title on my post like 49291 times. Anyways, I had no idea you have only been blogging since Feb! You are totally turning into a pro. And 4 sons?! Damn girl, you are strong. I would lose my mind :) If I go back in time, I would change something too. I love your honesty and realness. Have a great week girl

  4. Thank you for the nomination! xo :)
    I have had only one cell phone number every too, for 11 years now. That's actually kinda crazy to think about. And cheers to being night owls, dog people, and NYC lovers! :)

  5. I totally understand the fact about girls vs. boys. Girls are HARD to raise!! I love that you picked dogs over cats and coke over pepsi :)

  6. That picture makes me miss the beach SO much! Also I have had the same number too! I hope it never changes because I will never remember a new one!

  7. Congrats!!!! LOL!! I hate naming posts! it might be why I have written...lol... I have lil toes toooooo! I am the only black Southern gal that hates watermelon until I hear Beyonce drunk ass say it...lol I would LOVE to live in London...I have a desire for the British and use a British accent at work ...lol...they love it!! I think that after you give birth that reminder should just go AWAY!!!!!!!!!! Ugh! mmmmm Coke....Hi' I'm D and I'm a RECOVERING Coke addict...Coca Cola...I haven,t have on in 1.5 years...*le sigh*

  8. Yeah! Thanks so much for the nomination! Also thanks for all your detective work this weekend ;-) You have no idea how happy I was to open your email and read it to Mark. I was like like "see I do have real blogging friends". That water looks amazing!!

  9. That picture is BEAUTIFUL!!!! and Fresh Prince FTW!

  10. Loved reading your Q&A and random facts. And my first thought was the classic quote of, "I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch scotch. Down it goes, into my belly," a la Mr. Ron Burgundy hah.

  11. Wine and scotch! Yes please!! Thanks for nominating me!

  12. seriously periods are the WORST! why must we have those?!

  13. My sneeze sounds like a giant man sneeze its kind of scary LOL

  14. I don't like tomatoes either but eat ketchup and spaghetti sauce!

  15. Hahaha, I LOVE hearing people sneeze. Nobody has a good sneeze, don't worry about it ;)

  16. I hate thinking of Blog Post titles too.. they are the hardest.. lol.
    Love your children answer.. But i'm the opposite of you, I want all girls.. lol.. I guess because I never had a sister, lol. :)
    Loved your post. :)

  17. Thanks for the nomination, girl! :D
    I loooooove watermelon! I can seriously eat an entire one by myself in 2 days. No joke. With a little salt on it... mmmm!

  18. love dogs. and australia and london!

  19. Thanks for the nom!!! I'm definitely doing this.

    I loved your responses too. I feel the same way about dogs, moving to London, and coke. lol #twins

  20. I WANT TO LIKE SCOTCH SO MUCH. How did you do it? Was it an acquired taste thing? Is it completely weird that I fantasize about actually enjoying scotch? I don't know why -- and I hate how it tastes (I've tried all kinds of it), but still. It sounds so appealing. Me = weird. I have total location envy right now. This frequently happens when I visit your blog...

  21. OH MY GOSH that water is gorgeous!!!

  22. I love me some wine too!

    And that water, sign me up!

  23. Thanks for the nomination, girl! And loving that I'm a favorite :))))

    I always wanted boys, specifically twin boys. But recently, like the past year, I've been thinking I'd be happy with one baby girl. I've realized that living in NYC I can only afford one kid. Ha! Speaking of NYC, I think it would love it if you lived here too :)

  24. Enjoyed getting to know you better. 4 SONS? Have you lost your mind, hahaha. I get it, the drama with girls is a bit of a deterrent. :) Have a great weekend!!

  25. dang, 4 sons? that would be a smelly house! ;) my boyfriend has 3 brothers and when they all have a game night here... yeah, it's not pretty.

  26. Perfect post to get to know you! I too have had the same cell phone number for over a decade, which is one of the reasons I'll probably be stuck with AT&T for the rest of my life.

  27. haha 4 sons. as i'm getting older, i'm not sure about the 4 kids anymore. we'll see ;) omg my sneeze is high pitched too! i sound like a toy dog. and juice. apple juice is the devil. i cannot have it in the house, it wont last more than 12 hours (including me sleeping for 8 hours) haha. thanks for nominating me sweet!
    and im just gonna answer the questions here ;)

    1. How long have you been blogging?
    technically, april 2013. but i wasn't posting much at all (8 posts in all of 2013 lol) until March 14.

    2. What is your favourite part about blogging?
    definitely the people too - when i read blogs that said this, i rolled my eyes, but its so true. people like you!

    3. Do you like where you live? If no, where would you like to live?
    eh. i did, i do, but its harder now that i'm back from my amazing home. but you're right, so far away from everything. i would love to live in london because its so close to many amazing places!

    4. What is your favourite TV show - of all time?
    oy vey. no idea! so many. gilmore girls. charmed. i have too many, for sure.

    5. Dogs or cats? Why?
    cats! and dogs. i love my cats because they are easier than dogs (don't have to let them out, etc). at home, we leave dogs outside, but we can't do that in KY because of the weather. but i still love dogs. i love both, ok!

    6. What is your favourite season?
    summer hands down.

    7. Are you an early bird or night owl?

    8. What do you think is the best and worst thing about being a woman?
    exactly what you said.

    9. If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
    jane austen.

    10. If you were given the opportunity to go back in time and change one thing in your life, would you?
    i definitely think everything led me here and all that jazz, but if i could, the only thing i would change is to not be such a pathetic teenager and not give a shit about the bitchy girls. that's it. all the other mistakes were worth it, but the pain they put me through and wanting to be their friends was not worth it at all.

    11. Coke or Pepsi?
    coke. diet. but i'm trying to be good, so neither. haha.

    missed ya girly! xoxo

  28. Wow, I seriously cannot believe you've only been blogging for five months - that's amazing! Very fun to get to know you a bit better :)

  29. congrats on the nomination. I could not handle 4 sons. I think I want two boys and two girls or at least one boy and one girl. That beach looks absolutely beautiful.


I read all my comments. Drop me a line! I would love to hear from you! :)
