Wowza! I am incredibly honored and grateful to have been thought of for this award by Mel at Crushed Caramel   She’s such a fantastically sweet person and is the epitome of both a Sunshine and Versatile blogger.  There’s something to be enjoyed by absolutely everyone on her blog so pop over and say hello!

The Sunshine Blogger Award

What It Is….The Sunshine Blogger Award is given to those who are creative, optimistic and inspiring, while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.

The rules:

Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog so others can find them. -THANK YOU AGAIN MEL! 💕  Now it’s at this juncture that I’m going to stray.  I’m a rebel, that’s who I am and my cause is laziness.  I will Nominate only 5.  I just think it feels more special to the recipients AND I’ll only ask 5 questions because…..we’re back to the laziness thing. 😊

Answer the 11 (5) questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.

Nominate 11 (5) other bloggers and ask them 11 (5) new questions.

Notify the nominees about it by commenting on one of their blog posts.

List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or your blog site.

Eleven Questions Given to me:

IF YOU AND I WERE GOING TO DANCE TOGETHER – WHAT SONG WOULD IT BE TO?

Happy by Pharrell williams and yes, we’d try to do all the dance moves from the video.  I’d probably break something. 2nd choice, Move Like Jaggar.  I think we could blow these up!

HAVE YOU MADE ANY CONFESSIONS IN YOUR BLOGGING POSTS ABOUT MOMENTS OF MADNESS IN YOUR LIFE OR TIMES YOU WERE ALMOST IN TROUBLE WITH THE AUTHORITIES? (I know that some of my nominees have shared a long list of their confessions already, so please do pick the most outrageous!)

Oh, absolutely not!  And not would I,  at least not before checking the statute of limitations. Although I may have indicated that as a southern woman, I might be inclined to help a friend if she needed to hide a body. 😂 Have a pickup & a shovel? Problem solved.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL OR MEMORABLE DISH YOU HAVE EVER EATEN?

My husband Clay, though he knows that I’m a texture eater, continues to believe he can change me. (What a goob!)  He LOVES oysters on the half shell and insisted that I try one.  He lifts the shell to my lips and slips it into my mouth.  The moment it hit my tongue,  my throat shut and I couldn’t even close my mouth! I did the only thing I could…lean / tip forward where it promptly slid right back out and plopped onto my plate.
Clay burst into wild, wheezing hysterics.  Let’s be honest, these things do in fact  resemble something that should be spat out of the mouth, not swallowed!

ARE THERE CHARACTERS FROM ANY MOVIES OR NOVELS THAT YOUR FRIENDS COMPARE YOU TO?

Clay says I’m an irresistible combination of Cute, Crazy, and cool.  ( Heavy on the crazy side maybe) A wild mixture of Sandra Bullock, Lagertha from Vikings and rocker Lita Ford.

ARE THERE ANY QUALITIES YOU ADMIRE IN OTHER PEOPLE AND WISH YOU HAD TO A GREATER EXTENT?

Oh yeah! I could write a laundry list.  The first thing that came to mind was the ability to smile through…my pain, anger, stress, hurts, worries, etc.  All my emotions play out on my face regardless of how I might wish  not show them but then again, that’s close to being deceptive and I’m ok with giving people my honesty.  I think of myself as being a kind person but I’d like to be even more so.  I believe that it’s a worthy goal to continue growing in kindness throughout life.

HAVE YOU ANY EXPERIENCE OF ACTING, SPEAKING, SINGING OR DANCING ON A STAGE?
Oh sure, I’ve done school plays, gave speeches as the publicity director for Haven Of Hope, writers conferences,  and been asked to do a  reading for Harvest For Hunger.

APART FROM REMOVING ANY PARTICULAR POLITICIANS, IS THERE ANY ISSUE OR PROBLEM IN THIS WORLD THAT YOU FEEL PASSIONATELY YOU WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE?  

Yes,  to stop manufacturers from putting whatever preservatives that they’re adding to bread.  It’s unnatural that bread sits on a pantry shelf for 4 month without a spot of mold and as soft as the day it was purchased! It’s creeping me out! 😂

IF I WERE TO MAKE YOU YOUR DREAM CAKE – WHAT WOULD THAT CAKE BE?

All of them.  It’d be the tallest cake ever with each layer being a different flavor! Lol  I had a neighbor once who was elderly and alone.  I’d visit often and we’d chat over coffee.  She’d bake me the most moist, coconut rich, coconut cake.  It was divine!

WHAT WOULD YOU LOVE TO SEE ON THE FRONT PAGE OF THE NEWSPAPERS TOMORROW MORNING? (other than any particular politician being abducted by aliens)

MIDDLE AGE, CHUNKY & WRINKLES HAVE NOW BEEN DECLARED THE NEW SEXY!  Unrealistic mannequins and emaciated giraffe people are out!

HAVE YOU EVER HAD AN INTERNET ROMANCE OR AN INTERNET CRUSH YOU WERE TO SHY TO CONFESS?

Shy to confess? No. Internet Romance? Yes. I once read a profile that was so witty and funny that I commented on it. This guy and I began emailing letters like pen pals for a few months before deciding to speak on the phone. A few months later, we decided to meet and began dating, chaperoned by my adult children for the next 9 month. On the 10th of Dec. Clay and I will celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary.

YOU ARE ON MY LIST OF NOMINEES BECAUSE YOU CONSISTENTLY MAKE YOUR POSTS INTERESTING, YOU ARE FULL OF PERSONALITY AND YOU SUPPORT THE BLOGGING COMMUNITY SO MUCH – BUT TELL ME, ARE YOU LIKE THIS IN REAL LIFE?

I am so honored to be perceived as worthy of these things by my nominator.  I try to keep my blog and posts, authentic to myself and who I am and in it’s eclecticism, snarky humor and randomness, I think it sums me up pretty well and might be interesting. I can’t say that I’m full of personality but I’m certainly full of something. lol  And, I hope and strive to be a caring and supportive person in life.

  1. I seriously choked when asked the second question about your memorable dish and all I was able to read was “My husband Clay”… 💕😂🤣. I wasn’t able to read past because the tears blurred my vision. And then I laughed some more once I read the rest! (more book material!)
    You are the most amazing human! Thank you! 💕

  2. Oh this was good. I almost spit out my coffee with the oysters. I can’t stand them either, which is weird because I love sushi. I should eat them for man health issues but you’re right they look like come out of your mouth 😂😂
    Congratulations!
