♥ Sunshine Award ♥

AHHHHH I RECIEVED THE SUNSHINE AWARD!!

Ok Ok calm down calm down!!…

What have I got to do again??

ADVENTURES nominated me for the Sunshine Award, this is one I have never heard of so I am slightly exstatic about it on this dreary grey Saturday morning!  I have had a rollercoaster ride this past week (explanatory post coming later this weekend!) and this has topped it off no end!  So to the rules…

Here’s how it works:

  • Add the Award to your blog
  • Acknowledge the giver of the award and thank them
  • Answer a few questions about yourself
  • Nominate a few fellow bloggers with outstanding blogs for the award and include links to their sites :-).

ADVENTURES finds happiness in everything.  It’s her tagline, it’s her mantra and it’s what makes her so special as a blogger.  I know I am sometimes prone to a moan, Adventures finds a way of blogging the positive.  She is a great addition to my blogging family and I find her blog not only inspirational but also a darn good hoot!

Now to the questioning…

  • What is your favorite color?
    Coral, it’s such a jewel-like summery colour.
  • What is next on your bucket list?
    I have many things!! Check out my Apocalypse Bucket List .
  • What is your favorite number?
    17, I don’t know why, it’s odd and I hate odd numbers generally, but yeah 17.
  • What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?
    Mcdonald’s Strawberry Milkshake     OR       Lemonade and OJ.
  • Do you prefer Facebook or Twitter?
    I want to prefer Twitter, but I forget about Twitter, Facebook is just easier sometimes!.
  • What is your passion?
    My family and my friends, I wouldn’t be who I am without them.
  • Do you prefer getting or giving presents?
    BOTH!  Giving is just as good as recieving, I’d be lying if I said I PREFFERED giving 😛
  • What is your favorite time of day?
    DUSK, I love it when it feels kinda magical.  Especially in summer, or when it’s snowed.
  • What is your favorite day of the week?
    Sunday, it’s the relaxation day.  It’s my day, the day that is EXTRA, it doesn’t seem like a weekend day it’s an EXTRA day, and it always goes really slowly 🙂
  • Favorite flower?
    I like my flowers but I’m very very very picky!!  I love White Peonies.

Now, Drumroll please, for the nominees for the sunshine award…

Versatile Blogger Award

THE VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD

 
Oooh I feel all goosepimply and special! Thank you so much to CatBird, accepting this gracefully I would like to say a few little words for this wonderful woman! 
 
I first started my blog as a coping mechanism, I have suffered with what can only be described as depression but due to my unwillingness to take prescription medication I wanted to find a healthier and better (for me) way of coping and dealing with my mind. 
 
When I first started I thought no-one would read what I had to write, and I was okay with that, but when I received my frist comment that wasn’t in the spam folder which i convinced myself was real mail haha, it was from catbird.  In my short 3 months as a blogger she has taught me that my blog is my own and no matter what I post, big or small I should find the beauty in all things. 
 
 
On Catbird’s blog she states that she has a ‘photography blog yet she is not a photographer’ it is this beautiful quote that first made me respect her as a blogger and follow her posts religiously, although we like to say pie-giously! Please take some time out to check out her blog and I hope you enjoy her as much as I do… 

SO ONTO THE AWARD RULES AND REGULATIONS!!

  1. You must state and link your Nominator. [done √ ]
  2. You must tell everyone 7 things about yourself.
  3. You must nominate 15 Blogs and let them know

7 THINGS ABOUT ME THAT I BET YOUR DYING TO KNOW *sarcastic face*

  1. I have an overwhelming love for button mushrooms.  No fancy pancy special mushrooms, just normal every day button mushrooms, I bloody love them.

    – Supernatural
    – Criminal Minds
    – Glee
    – Alphas
    – Warehouse 13
    – Desperate Housewives

    and many many many many more, I’m a TV freak
  3. I enjoy listening to music in bed.
  4. I have a kings size duvet on a double bed and I have a grand total of 21 pillows.
  5. I’m terrified of spiders, heights, failure and never being loved.
  6. I love to cook mexican food and make amazing Guacamole.
  7. My biggest wish right now would be to be asked to write  a book and actually get paid to write it, or be asked to act on Eastenders, OR get an apprenticeship as a cake decorator.
