Sunshine Award: 11 Questions

Sweet Taylor gave me the sunshine award! “The Sunshine Award is given to bloggers who bring sunshine to the blogging world. ”  It’s so sweet for Taylor to give this to me….I love reading her blog with her precious puppies!

She gave me some questions to answer…so here goes! (I have TONS of blogs that I love…and all of you bring sunshine to this world…whether with adorable kiddos, beautiful outfits, yummy recipes, or sharing your heart….so I HATE to nominate people for this sort of stuff because I hate to make people feel obligated to post about it.  So if you are lost for a post for tomorrow, here ya go.  You’re nominated. 🙂  ha!)

1. What is your favorite family holiday tradition? I like our family’s tradition of opening gifts from youngest to oldest.  I used to get to go first until my cousins came along..but this is my favorite tradition because my Gram and Dad get SO impatient waiting their turns!

2. Who is your celebrity crush? Zac Hanson.  You already knew that. 🙂

3. If you knew when you were going to pass away, what would you choose your last meal to be? Toughie.  This would change based on what I’m craving.  Today, it’s pasta…so I would pick dinner at Ermelio’s in Eureka Springs.  Pesto rounds for appetizer, linguine with gorgonzola cream sauce, and tiramisu for dessert.

4. What is your favorite hairstyle that you wish you could pull off but don’t really think you could? Even shorter hair.  I’m all about spunky and easy to fix. Ala Ginnifer Goodwin.

5. If you could travel to any ONE destination and spend a week there, where would you go? Back to Hawaii.  The perfect mix of relaxing, beautiful, fancy places to eat and shop, and adventure.

6. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? A singer.

7. What is your favorite social media site (instagram, facebook, twitter, etc)? Instagram.

8. What’s at the top of your Christmas wish list? Probably a monogram pullover.

9. If you could spend the day with one celebrity who is currently alive, who would it be? I think that Miranda Lambert and I could have a lot of fun together.

10. What is your favorite Christmas movie? White Christmas. 

11. Most of us try to live pretty inexpensively whether it’s taking advantage of a sale, clipping coupons, etc. but what is one item you are always willing to splurge on? Mascara.  I need good mascara.

11 Questions for anyone who wants to play….

  1. Can you believe I have never seen White Christmas? It’s on my list of things to see this season! Also, I think you could totally pull off that hair cut. It’s so cute and one of my favorites too, but I know I could not pull it off!

  2. Ooooh…so what is your favorite splurge mascara? I use mostly nice makeup now but still get super cheapie mascara. Not that I particularly NEED to get snobby taste in mascara too, but just curious what brand might make me change my mind.. 🙂

  3. YAY! I’m so glad you participated! I loved your answers, although I’m surprised by the Miranda Lambert one, I thought for sure you’d choose Zac again 😛

  4. i always like pixie cuts but am so i afraid i could never pull it off! everyone says they think i can but i’m afraid i would have trouble fixing it. i’m so bad about letting my (naturally wavy/curly) hair dry by itself that i think with it that short, it could be a problem. lol
