Sunshine Blogger Award

I would like to thank both Eve @ Eve Messenger and Jess @ Belk Books for nominating me to do this! They’ve got amazing blogs so y’all should definitely go check them out!

The Rules:

  • Answer the 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you.
  • Nominate some wonderful bloggers and write 11 questions for them to answer.


Eve’s Questions

What are three things that make you laugh?

Will Ferrell movies, my mother, my hilarious sarcasm. 😉

What’s your favorite daydream?

The one where I move to Ireland and open up my bookstore and whiskey bar.

Would you rather have the power to shapeshift or to make yourself invisible?

Make myself invisible so I can sneak into movies for free and watch them in peace.

What’s one of your favorite stupid pun jokes? (Example: “Why did Adele cross the road? To say hello from the other side.”)

I can’t think of one off the top of my head.

Do you like stickers?

For sure! I really want to order some for my planner.

What’s your favorite social media and why?

Probably Instagram, because I enjoy looking at pictures.

Do you sleep with the light on or off?

OFF. I have to have total darkness and will never understand those people that sleep with the tv on. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!

If you performed in a talent show, what would your talent be?

Probably dance but more likely, I’ll throw up and run off stage in fright.

Have you ever handwritten a letter? If yes, to whom did you mail it and when?

No, not yet. But I will be soon for a part of the bookstagram traveling card.

What’s your favorite thing to do with friends?

Just going to a bar and sit around having a drink and talking.

Big or small, what’s something you’ve done that you’re really proud of?

Moved to Prague all by myself to live for a year, no knowing anyone there.


Jess’ Questions

Do prefer frozen yogurt or ice cream? Which flavor?

Both for different things – I love cake batter yogurt with rainbow sprinkles and then cookies n’ cream ice cream. So yummy!

What’s one thing you enjoy about your life today?

Today as in Saturday April 2nd, 2016? Book blogging, haha! 🙂

What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do?

Revert to Eve’s last question.

If there’s two professions that you absolutely do NOT want to become, what are they and why?

Doctor/Nurse – I can’t handle blood and stuff like that. News reporter – Being in front of a camera scares the shit outta me.

What is the last thing you ate?

Chicken strips!

What is your Zodiac sign?

Aquarius – Aquarius is the sign of visionaries, unconventionality and intellectual independence. Aquarius are the people who deviate from the crowd and go their own way. They are always after intellectual stimulation, constantly discovering something new, forming new opinions and stubbornly traveling their way regardless of what other people think. Aquarius are filled with paradoxes, they are interested in the opposite ends of the spectrum, they like to be alone yet are social butterflies, they like to experience both sides and see both opinions as they formulate new ideas with their forward thinking, active mind. Aquarius have a ‘live and let live’ policy where everyone is free to be themselves, an Aquarius never judges others because as human beings, we are all equal and entitled to our own opinions. They are verbally skilled and very witty, they observe people and learn how to interact with others through observation. They can be masters of manipulation justifying anything they do or think. As a result, they can deal with any type of personality and adapt to any situation. They welcome change because boredom is their enemy. Anything new is an opportunity to Aquarius. Aquarius can act as an expert on any topic, they are very good at inflating their own importance, they feel it is deserved because their eccentricity makes them unique. Conventional people beware, Aquarius likes to shock and deviate from the norm, this is how they live. Aquarius is known to pick at anyone they find weak or dull-minded. It is simply an easy target for verbal exercise for them, no harm is meant but it might be taken from the other person. Deep inside, Aquarius would never intentionally hurt anyone, they have respect for every human, even thought this might not seem apparent to the more emotional types.

Yup, that’s pretty much me in a nutshell.

If you had a brainwashing machine, who would you use it on?

Hmmm, how about all of the bad people in the world?!

Do you have a favorite holiday?

Christmas. Not even a close call!

Have you ever gotten a tattoo? If not, do you plan on getting one?

No, I know what I would get if I could though… A small silhouette of Peter Pan and the Darlings flying to Neverland behind my ear. Or a book quote.

Winter or Summer?

Winter, because CHRISTMAS!

Do you always eat breakfast in the morning?

Not at all, I’m not a breakfast person. I’m never hungry when I first wake up either.

  1. Ahhh!! Thank you for nominating me!!! I’m a little backed up on tags, but as soon as I have it up I will be sure to let you know! Such an honour :3

    Fellow Aquarius babies! We’re the best. Hands down. And it is so amazing that you went through such a big move/change all by yourself. I could never do that. High fives!! 😀

  2. I love that tattoo idea!! I’ve been thinking of something like that, too, just not behind my ear. I freaking love Peter Pan. I’m wanting to get a HP one too… 😀

      1. It didn’t hurt me at all! Just all depends on the placement. I have a friend who has a tattoo behind on ear & she said it didn’t hurt much, either.

    1. You’re so creative. What a good idea for a tattoo. I’m too much of a baby to get a tat. My favorite comedy is Old School. I’m a Will Ferrell fan, too. And Step Brothers…love that movie. What did you think of Anchorman 2 though?

      1. Thank you! I’ve just always been obsessed with the story of Peter Pan… Yesssss, I love Old and Step-Brothers but I also really love Talladega Nights and Zoolander (though technically he’s only the villain in that one). I kind of got bored with Anchorman 2 though. It was a bit of a letdown. They’re actually filming Step-Brothers 2 about 45 minutes from house and I really just want to go hang out around the set so I can meet him hahahah!

      2. I broke out my paperback copy of Peter Pan around Christmas. I’ve always loved that story. We were really excited about Anchorman 2 and were bummed that it wasn’t anything like the first one. They had some of the best one liners in the first movie. “I love lamp.” Lol. I heard about Step Brothers 2. I must’ve watched that movie 100 times. The bunk beds scene… There are no words, only laughter. “So many activities!” I laugh so hard I cry every time I watch it and hear him say that. Haha! Maybe you can get on set for the day as an extra. When I lived in Cali, people used to do that all the time. That would be so cool to see them film that movie.

      3. I know! And yes, that scene from Step Brothers and the ones where they get beat up by the kids and where they start fighting in the front yard cracks me up SOOOOO MUCH!.. I’ve really been thinking about signing up to do extra work because they film a whole lot of movies around this area.


  3. Haha, thank you for answering my questions!! I LOVE Christmas and Winter as well & I am always in the mood for chicken strips 😉

  4. Thank you for nominating me! What a great daydream, who wouldn’t want to go to a bookstore with some whiskey on the rocks 😉

    Liked by 1 person

    1. You’re so welcome! And I know, right?! There’d have to be a massive fireplace with some really comfortable chairs in the corner as well, so you can enjoy your books and whiskey. I’ll be sure and invite you to come see it when I finally bring this place to life! 😉
