Crushed Caramel the creator of Crushed Caramel has nominated me for The Sunshine Blogger Award!!  I have written about my hard dealings with things and my down times, so not always sunshine for sure, but I try to make light of most things I share here and have fun.  Caramel is a wonderful blogger and I am gushing that she would choose me as one of her nominees for this award.  Please take time to check out her post below and learn a little more about her:

A reminder of the rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog so others can find them – THANK YOU so much CARAMEL!

  • Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
  • Notify the nominees about it on one of their own posts.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or your blog site.

 

Caramel’s Questions for her nominees:

  1. Do you have any blogging achievements you are pleased with…or a particular post you are really proud of? It seems that many folks go through things I go through. So, I find when I share my fears and problems, I seem to reach more people than normal.  I wrote a poem which had more response than any of my other posts as well. New Me Rising
  2. Do you like parties? I love parties, especially when a lot of my friends are there.
  3. What are your next door neighbours like? Do you get on with them? I really have no “next door neighbors” I am on a street that we are separated by woods and so can’t really interact very easily.  Which is really okay by me.  :p
  4. What would be some of the features of your dream wedding? (if not your own then the wedding of a beloved family member or friend perhaps) To just share the special moment with all I love and then be able to celebrate it in style!
  5. What is your favourite food “on toast”? BLT! Yummy!
  6. Do you have any bad driving habits? Hmmm….maybe getting irritated when there is a lot of traffic and I feel anxious and stressed so let it change my mood to irratable.
  7. What’s the most romantic thing that someone has done for you? Taken me on a trip to somewhere I have never been
  8. Have you ever been harassed at work? No, not that I can think of really
  9. What kind of food / snacks would you take with you on a picnic? Sandwiches, cheese and crackers, almonds
  10. Have you ever been the victim of a crime? No I have not (knock on wood)
  11. If you were a tourist in England, where would you like to visit? Piccadilly or Buckingham Palace

**Unfortunately, I don’t know 11 bloggers yet to be able to pick that many for this award.  But these are the ones I would nominate (and if you have already been nominated, don’t have time or don’t want to do more than answer the questions, that is fine.  Just want you to know I would pick you! 🙂 )

My Questions are:

  1. What makes you the happiest about your blog?
  2. What is your all time top goal?
  3. What is one thing on your bucket list?

White Elephant Party

IMG_5758

Every day The Haunted Wordsmith (Teresa) will be hosting a white elephant party. If you are unfamiliar with what a white elephant party is, it can be summed as as a party where people exchange gifts that are meant to be funny (some are serious though, its up to the gift giver).” She lists 3 fellow bloggers and the gift she gives them.  Then at the end of the day she will share the funniest gifts shared.

I am so excited to be included in today’s Party!! 🙂

So, here are my gifts I choose to give.  I do not know many as of yet, but those that have touched me by comments and sense of community, I give these to you:

To Paula Light

8-extraordinary-people

Free hugs because of all her support and input that means so much!! ❤

 

To Culture Shocks

To Teresa of the Haunted Wordsmith
