I love blogging for many reasons but one of the biggest is the people I get to meet or people I know but get to reconnect with through their blogs. One blogger that I’ve met in the past couple of months is Tabitha from Debt Free Decorating. Tabitha is a homeschool mom that loves to decorate without breaking the bank so we have a bit in common. She has been sweet to give me a Sunshine Award and since I love sunshine and awards, I happily receive it.

The Sunshine Award comes with a few rules:

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

The Questions:

Love or Money?

Ummm, how about both?

High Salary or Job Satisfaction?


Favorite Book?

This is a tough one. I read voraciously as a kid but not so much as an adult. I read “Wuthering Heights” last year but I didn’t really like it. I guess I don’t have a favorite…I loved “Anne of Green Gables”. Ooh, wait, I loved “The Oath” by Frank Peretti. It was creep-tastic…but I listened to that on tape…moving on.

Television character that you simply adore?

I have to pick one? I love Lorelai Gilmore, Sookie St. James, Luke Danes,  Leroy Jethro Gibbs, and Sidney Bristow. You get extra super brownie points if you know what shows their from. The first three are all on the same show. The question should be which ensemble do I simply adore. The Gilmore Girls cast is my number one but the cast from NCIS is a close second. Shoot! And Psych…I can’t believe I forgot about them.

Favorite Music

It depends on the day. Sometimes it’s art music, sometimes it’s pop-ish, sometimes it’s jazz or blues or rock.

Favorite Type of Movie-

This also depends on the day. I usually like happy ones though. I don’t go to the movies to feel sad.

When I feel sad or depressed-

I quit eating sugar. Really. Sugar and I have a tumultuous relationship. There may also be TV watching involved.

Now for the nominees

Of course I have to nominate my dear friend Mary at Calico Dreams she’s been blogging forever and has a great perspective on life and parenting and the Bible.

My new friend and new blogger, Corine at All Things Good and Wise.

And I would love to nominate my friend, Christy at Mess and Happiness but she’s currently a crazy busy mom of two, wife of one, and is a music student in college. So, Christy, only do this if you want to. You should visit and peruse her archives. Her creativity is amazing and it’s fun to read.

Oh, and Darling Adventures…by Ginny. Her Upcycled Cans are pretty popular here but she’s got lots of other tutorials and fun stuff to inspire you.

Thanks again, Tabitha! And to all of you that I’ve nominated…this is just a fun thing to do if you want to, please don’t feel obligated.

    • That’s a gift? Who knew? I like so many things that it’s hard for me to pick a favorite. Puppies. If you asked me what my favorite animal was I’d pick puppies. If you asked me what breed was my favorite I’d pick 20.
      What I do when I’m depressed is pray *a lot* unless my head is mush and then I shut down and don’t talk. Because I’ll probably say something I’ll have to apologize for and it’s hard to undo the damage. So I then I watch tv. But that’s much too inside my head for the general public.
      I couldn’t pick a favorite music but if somebody had a gun to my head I’d say jazz. Not the experimental, clashing, dissonant jazz but the smooth relaxing Miles Davis type jazz.
      Book? My favorite book as a kid was Helen Keller and I’m still fascinated by her life.
      I’d pick love over money or I’d never have married a music guy. And I’d pick money over job satisfaction because the music guy has to do computer stuff to pay the bills. He’d rather not but he’d have had a cow if I wrote that in the actual post. In case someone at work saw it. He’s
      careful like that.
      Now please don’t ask me what my favorite color is :)

      • I still haven’t answered them. I copied and pasted into my blog but it’s waiting for editing. Most of my preferences in life have boiled down to a few things and I love that, but it’s difficult to articulate on something like that…so I agree with your methods for the most part.

        Do you remember how old you were when you read Helen Keller? I’ve been trying to find some non-fiction for Owen to read. He likes hearing about history, but doesn’t really enjoy reading it, so I’m looking for interesting stories. I think I was a little older when I read about Corrie Ten Boom, in “The Hiding Place” but I know he will love it some day. He’s reading “Black Beauty” right now and I think we’ll try to watch the movie this weekend.

        My boys want to know what my favorite color is. I tell them what it was when I was a kid, red, but it’s oh so much more than that now. :)

        • I read a biography that I probably got from one of those Scholastic school book order forms. I read it about 10 times but I couldn’t tell you what the name of it was. Sorry.

  1. Oh, I loved The Oath! It’s been Sooooooo long since I read it, I think highschool?! Have you read the first three he did, something like Peircing the Darkness (about angels and demons)? I need to re-read those also.
