Sunshine Blogger Award



Thank you, Laura Beth at Hotshot Headlines and Siobhan’s Novelties, for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Laura Beth nominated me back in April and I’ve been ridiculously slow in getting to this. When I saw Siobhan nominated me, I thought it was the perfect time to get to it, combining both awards into one post. Thank you both!!

Laura Beth’s Questions

  1. If you could only listen to two artists or bands for the rest of your life, who would you choose, and why?
    Miranda Lambert and Foreigner – They’re my two favorites and I love the majority of their songs.
  2. What is your dream novel, or idea for one?
    I said this on Instagram once – I’d love for someone to write a book about two people falling in love through their Little Free Library. Maybe they write notes back and forth in the front of the books they’re sharing with one another. If I was a better writer, I’d write it myself!
  3. Do you remember the first book you ever read?
    Yes, it was a book about telling time and had several clocks on every page. I don’t remember the name of the book though.
  4. If you could live in any sitcom, which would it be?
    That 70’s Show. Donna and I would be great friends. 😀
  5. If money were no object, where would you be living?
    The English Countryside
  6. If you could INSTANTLY become an expert in something, what would it be?
    I would love to speak multiple languages fluently.
  7. Who are three people, living or dead, that you most admire?

  8. Is there someone you would love to see live in concert?
    Pistol Annies
  9. What was your favorite subject in school?
    English and History
  10. It’s “Self-Care Sunday,” what are you doing?
    It’s not Sunday now, but I am taking a rest day from working out today. I just started a new weight/running work out and the past two days left me feeling pretty sore.
  11. What historical time period would you like to visit?
    The 1940’s! It’s my favorite era.
