Well lookie there lil miss HÉLÈNE, AKA HEALTHYFRENCHIE over at http://healthyfrenchie.wordpress.com/ had nominated me this week for the Sunshine award…. So sweet of her and her “Frenchie” self :) She has always had such kind words on my blog so for that I am truly honored to receive this award…. And also it’s my very first award in the world of blogging.  Makes me feel all warm and mushy inside, hell I just may cry.  Okay maybe not, but I am deeply moved and even said “awe” when I saw it.

What I find awesome about the sunshine awards is you get to see other awesome blogs….

Here are the rules:


• Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog.
• Answer 10 questions about yourself.
• Nominate 10-12 other fabulous bloggers.
• Link your nominees to this post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.
• Share the love and link the person who nominated you.



1. Favorite color? Purple and Blue Funny about this question I use to always say blue but I LOVE the color purple too sometimes I think I wanted to deny my girly side.

2. Favorite animal?  Giraffe every one should have one.  What?  You don’t have a Giraffe?

3. Favorite number? don’t have one honestly….

4. Favorite non-alcoholic drink? These days it’s either water and on occasion I like cherry diet dr pepper

5. Prefer Facebook or Twitter? Facebook, don’t use twitter!

6. My passion? This should be plural because I have several…. Childbirth is a huge passion of mine for I some day aspire to become a midwife, carseat safety it’s a huge pet peeve of mine and I am constantly helping others with their seats when I can, my children and family.

7. Prefer getting or giving presents?  Giving, I suck at receiving some how I was not given the trait to where you get a present and you have this wonderful shocked OMG I love it face.  I am the type that gets excited inside but don’t show it well, heck I don’t even know how.  So sometimes people take it as I don’t like what they have done.  I much prefer making others happy instead.

8. Favorite pattern?  Who thought of these questions?  I have no clue lol whatever doesn’t make me dizzy

9. Favorite day of the week? The weekends because I sleep in and Derrick takes over with the baby.  He is such an awesome daddy and spouse :)

10. Favorite flower?  White rose and Lillys
