Sunshine Award Love!

Sunshine Award

Thank you to Louisa of Art of Being a Mom for giving me a Sunshine Award! The palm trees make me want to dig my feet into the sand, feel the waves wash over me and the feel the sun on my face. Thanks for that short and sweet mental vacation, Louisa. 😉

11 Random Facts About Me

  1. I wear size 6 ½ shoes.
  2. I was named after a beauty queen in the ‘70s.
  3. My juice of the moment is Del Monte’s Tipco Broccoli Juice. It’s not pure broccoli; it’s also got celery, kiwi, apple… but it’s still green. 100% natural. Timmy loves it too!
  4. I can’t sleep with the lights on. Timmy prefers having the lamp on, but I’m teaching him to sleep with all the lights out! Our bodies get better sleep that way.
  5. I don’t know how to ride a bike.
  6. Because I have a terrible sense of balance.
  7. My all-time favorite movie is “Dead Poets Society.”
  8. My favorite Pixar film is “Toy Story 3”.

  10. My morning alarm goes off to “Brighter Than Sunshine” by Aqualung.
  11. I’m sad that is this How I Met Your Mother’s last season, but relieved at the same time because we know it ends happily.

And now to answer Louisa’s 11 questions!

1. What inspires you to blog?
Being able to help others and connect with others through my stories. Hopefully the things I learn about in my life help others make their lives better, more inspired, easier.

2. What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
If you mean NON-LIVING THING by “thing” and not something abstract like love and happiness, then I’d have to say my eyeglasses. I cannot see without my glasses.

3. If you could go back in time what year would you choose and why?
I’d go back to 1994 and tell my freshman college self to get involved in school activities. Try out for the Drama club. Try out for the Fencing Team!!! Crap, I regret not doing that. I had my reasons for chickening out, but looking back they were hardly valid. So yeah, 1994 it is.

4. What food do you run to when you’re depressed?
Chocolate. Preferably Crunchy Almond Toblerone.

5. Are you a saver or a spender?

6. What is your job and do you love what you do?
I’m a Planner by profession. I enjoy what I do. Love is a strong word. I love writing, I enjoy planning. There’s a diff. 😉

7. If you could change your name what would you change it to?
I think my Mom wanted to name me Genevieve. I like Genevieve. It’s hard to spell, but that makes it even more fun to have as a name. :)

8. How do you spend your free time?
Playing games on my iPhone. Seriously. Cooking Dash. Phrases Friends.

9. What is the one place on earth that you would want to be stuck on?
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
There’s no place like home.

10. How old do you feel?
32. 4 years younger.

Ride a car without a seatbelt. Tsk, tsk.

    It’s an honor Ms. Toni that you actually considered my blog and my random thoughts as something worthwhile to read. For this, I am inspired to write more… Things like this make a sunshiny day indeed whatever the course of weather be. Because I look up to you and your inspirations, then it makes my blog in return the product of good vibes you imbibe. Thank you!
