10 Questions... because I'm a Sunshine Nominee!

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

My good friend Emily over at House in the Heights has nominated me for a Sunshine Award! What that means is, reading my blog sometimes brightens her day. What an honor! (Especially because reading her blog brightens my day.) I decorate and design my house vicariously through Emily. She is so creative. Maybe if I read her blog enough, I will learn all the tricks of the trade and finally someday make the improvements to my home that I know it needs! But until then, I shall just follow Emily's adventures!

Anyway... being nominated for a Sunshine Award means I must answer 10 questions that Emily gave me and then nominate some other bloggers for the award and give them their questions.

This is starting to sound like the blog version of a chain letter!

Anyway, Ems gave me some pretty juicy questions... so here we go!

1. How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging on June 5th, 2013! I am proud to say I have blogged every day since!

2. What inspired you to start blogging?

My love of running, lifting, and fitness.
I want to share my love and knowledge of (mostly) healthy living with others!

3. If you could travel to any 3 places in the world, where would they be?

Europe (I know that's a lot of places wrapped into one, too bad!)

4. What's the best concert you've been to?

I would have to say Madonna because at the time,
I LOVED her and it was so cool to see her live- twice- with my best friend!

5. Describe your dream house.

This may sound strange, but I love my house! So I would have to say it's my exact house, except...
- Every room is just a little bit bigger
- It's in the middle of a huge yard, right next to the Appalachian Trail
- The carport is turned into a garage
- There is an annex attached which is a full gym.
- We have a hot tub in the back yard.
- We also have a landscaper and cleaning woman that come with the house.

6. What are some things on your bucket list?

- Travel everywhere.
- Lead a marathon pace group.
- Run all of these races.

7. You MUST change your first name. What do you change it to?


8. Name 5 of your favorite blogs. (Besides House in the Heights, of course.)
9. Name a celebrity you find oddly attractive, someone who wouldn't typically occupy one's 'hot celeb list'.

Seth Myers

10. What is your favorite day of the entire year? Why?

Christmas Eve! Because I love the build up to Christmas Day!

Okay, now it's my turn to nominate some recipients of the Sunshine Award... Let's go with 5 of my favorite blogs!!!

Karen @ Runner Girl Eats

Your job: Answer the 10 questions below (some I stole!) and nominate others for the award.
 If you don't want to do it, that's fine too! 
You are still a nominee of mine because you bring sunshine to my day!

1. How did you come up with the name for your blog?
2. What would your memoir be called?
3. What is your "day job"?
4. What are 3 of your proudest fitness accomplishments?
5. You HAVE to change your first name. What do you change it to?
6. What is the best concert you've ever been to?
7. Tell me some things on your bucket list.
8. Describe your dream house.
9. Name a celebrity you find oddly attractive, one that wouldn't usually occupy one's 'hottest celeb list'.
10. Tell me 5 of your favorite blogs.

Have a great one!


  1. It's not at ALL weird to say that your house is your ideal hour - if anything that's amazing!!! So many people would be envious of that :)

    And congrats on blogging every single day, that's a HUGE FEAT!!!

    1. Thank you! I guess I think it's weird to say it's my dream home because it is nothing special, except that it's where I live and it's where all the people and fur balls I love live. :) Just a little ranch house but it's all ours and it's our home so I love it!

  2. Ohhh lead a marathon pace group is such a good bucket list item! I love that! You should definitely do it! :)

  3. Congrats on your Sunshine Award nomination! Your blog always brightens up my day!

  4. These questions are so fun! I'm going to save them for the new year and make a post to answer them :o) Thanks for nominating me!! I'm so glad I found your blog this year!
