Sunshine Blogger Award!

Thanks Sam Kimberle for nominating me :)


How this works — when you are nominated, you make a post answering the questions posed to you — then tag a bunch of other unsuspecting people to answer questions you make up for them.


Here are the questions that Sam Kimberle posed for me to answer:

  1. Cake or pie? uummmm chips! I don’t eat much sweets unless it is gummy candy like Gushers.
  2. What’s your favorite memory from holiday seasons past? It snowed one year on Christmas Eve. I have pictures of my siblings and I and my cousins with a veil of snowflakes across our smiling faces.
  3. What’s your favorite season? I like Spring — new life inspires me.
  4. What’s your favorite flower? Schweinitz’s sunflower — they are an endangered aster here in North Carolina.
  5. If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why? I would be a debt-zapper. Cape and all. No tighty-tights tho cuz — -yikes!
  6. What is something we probably don’t know about you? I am 5 foot tall and I have tiny little feet lol
  7. When you think about the future, what do you look forward to? Buying a home — God willing and soon, PLEASE. (I need a debt-zapper, stat!)
  8. When you think about the past, do you have any regrets? Absolutely. It took me 10 years to leave my abuser. 10 years too long — but I evolved as a human being and I guess I can be thankful for that.
  9. What was your high school superlative? Literature. On one parent’s conference my mother made her way from class to class and 3 teachers in a row told her the exact same thing about me — that I have “a very analytical mind, a deep-thinker.” Analyzing literature was my favorite.
  10. What is your favorite thing to have for breakfast? I rarely eat breakfast.
  11. What four words would you use to describe yourself? intelligent, creative, self-motivated , mentally-strong
