Sunshine Award from AJ

AJ nominated me (is that the right phrase?) to participate in a 10 question ‘getting to know you’ survey and I in turn have to get 10 more bloggers to do it. I’m not really into the linkup portion BUT I will LOVE YOU very much if you do it on your blog and let me know 😉



    • Who is your celebrity crush?

Hmm well it used to be Heath Ledger during high school with his bad boy character in 10 Things I Hate About You. But since that was many moons ago, and shouldn’t count for a multitude of reasons…..I’m gonna go with sigh. Baby brain has me blanks. Yikes. Better brush up on some movies.

  • What was the first concert you went to?


Yanni. No joke. I went with my mom and her friends and apparently they thought 4 kids would have fun. We did not. Also to show how much time have changed – we also wandered around the Gibson Amphitheater. Lol


  • If someone gave you half a million dollars and one day to spend it, what would you do?


I hope the day starts upon arrival. But I would fly to Bora Bora and buy out the entire island and sleep and get a massage and sight see and eat the best of the best and drink the best champagne ever. Jon would be there too!!


  • What is your dream vacation destination?


Anywhere tropical. Although we are planning a trip to Chile in a few years.


  • Do you have any quirky phobias? (And if so, what are they?)


No I think mine are the same as most – spiders, earthquakes, small & dark places.


  • What is your favorite way to relax?


Quiet place with a glass of wine.


  • How did you celebrate your 21st birthday?


I was the first in my group to turn 21. So at midnight I had a shot at a friend’s house. I think that night we also went to a pool hall where I ordered an apple martini. Then that weekend I headed up to Internet to visit some friends from college (I went there for 2 years then transferred closer to home) and we had drinks and that’s where my celebration truly took place.


  • What is your social media/blogging pet peeve?


People who push out FB notifications to twitter – when they say “link in comments!!” And then never actually post another tweet with the link.


  • If you could go to college for free and study anything you wanted just for fun, what would classes would you seek out?




  • Who are your heroes?


Anyone who is brave enough to stand up for what they believe in. And in the same breathe – intelligent enough to listen openly to an opposing view and carry on an actual discussion.

Check out what AJ posted with her nomination here.


And for fun, If you WANT to do it…








My questions are:

  • If someone gave you keys to a new car, no strings attached, which car would you choose?
  • What’s something in your purse that people would think you’re odd for carrying around?
  • What’s your most favorite meal to prepare?
  • You have 1 minute to put on makeup – what are you putting on?
  • What’s your go-to drink at Starbucks? (or Coffee Bean – or any coffee place)
  • Margaritas – on the rocks or blended? Regular or fruity?
  • Why did you join Twitter? (and c’mon, I know you’re all on there)
  • How much did you spend on your most expensive pair of shoes.  What were they? Worth it?
  • What was your  very first best friend’s name?
  • Where was your first kiss?

So for those I tagged, if you feel like doing this, make sure you Mention me, Post that pic, Answer the questions, Tag others, and Make up your own questions!
