Sunshine Blogger Award

This post is long overdue but I am excited to finally get it posted! I was nominated by the wonderfully talented Ellie K and I am very thankful! Thank you so much Ellie for thinking of me during your nominations and guys please make sure you check her out!

The rules of the Sunshine Blogger Award are:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog
  2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs and write them 11 new questions.

The questions Ellie asked me were:

  1. How long have you been blogging?- I have been blogging for about 13 months.
  2. What genre of music is your favorite?-That’s a hard one! I listen to absolutely everything but if I had to choose it would be 90’s hip hop.
  3. Who is your biggest inspiration?Women. All of us because we are POPPIN. Want something done right? Ask a woman.
  4. What movie had the biggest impact on your life?Honestly, I am not a big movie watcher so I had to really think about this one. I suppose it would have to be Hidden Figures. That movie was incredible and those women rose against so much adversity. It was incredible to watch.
  5. What time do you wake up in the morning? Morning? Let’s try 11am and sometimes noon. I am a major night owl…all attempts to be a morning person have been thwarted by a strong desire to sleep. 😉
  6. What are your favorite blogs? A LOT!!!

My nominees:

I love each one of these blogger’s work! And my round of questions for you guys are:

  1. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

    I used to travel a lot in my 20s and 30th and my favorite trip was to Greece. I went on a land tour of Greece for one week and a week-long cruise to some Greek islands and Turkey, Egypt and Israel. Do make that trip as part of your bucket list. P.S. – I’m not a movie fan and am probably the only person in the world who has never seen any of the “Star Trek” movies, and fallen asleep during “White Christmas” and “It’s a Wonderful Life” … is it me? I guess so. 🙂

      That trip sounds amaaaazing! Wow. My husband and I really want to make the time to do a 10 day stay and travel around the entire of Greece. I can’t wait to get there. I’ve never seen one second of Star Trek either! A movie has to be very captivating to keep my attention. I’m currently watching Grace and Frankie on Netflix and I think a big part of why I can watch it is because the episodes are 28 minutes long. Anything longer and I’m zoned out. Thanks so much for reading!

        I’ll look forward to reading about your travels in Greece, a beautiful and historic place. I don’t even have cable TV anymore … cancelled it long ago but don’t miss it. I used to love the various types of TV mini series back in the 90s or so, a lot of good novels turned into mini series but they seem to have disappeared. I like my TV in short bursts as well. Enjoy your weekend.
