Questions, Awards, And Hunger Games

It’s Friday! I know you’re probably expecting a dose of #AskAwayFriday, but I was a slacker this week and didn’t get a partner. I would berate myself, but since that time slacking was spent watching The Hunger Games and Total Drama Island with my kiddo, I’m calling it a win.

The lovely Tracie, Echo, Stacey, and Christy did jump in and ask me a few last minute questions, and the sweet Sonya nominated me for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award. So I figured I’d combine the two themes for a happy, sparkly lead into the weekend πŸ™‚


Rules for the Award

1. Thank the person who nominated you.

2. Share seven facts about yourself.

3. Nominate 15 bloggers for the award and include a link to their blog.

4. Notify the 15 bloggers you nominated to let them know they have received an award.

7 Random Facts/Answers to Questions

1. If I were to get a book quote tattoo, I’d love to get “da mi basia mille” inked somewhere kinda intimate, like my hip. It’s from the Outlander series, and represents the very sweetest love to me. (Tracie’s question)

2. I would love to have Melissa McCarthy play me in a movie of my life. I love her comedic style, and I think she’d be able to accurately portray my quirkiness. (Echo’s question)

3. You can judge me if you want, but Bruno Mars’ Locked Outta Heaven always makes me sing along and shake it. I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t get enough of that song. (Stacey’s question)

4. If we won an all expenses paid wedding, I think we’d like a destination wedding, assuming those paid expenses included traveling accommodations for our loved ones. In a perfect dream, I’d love to get married in some pretty far away place like Scotland or Italy. (Christy’s question)

5. Our wedding colors are orange/copper and teal/turquoise. It’s a combination of mine and my fiance’s favorite colors and is quirky just like us. We’re also doing a lot of DIY to make our wedding as personable (and affordable!) as possible πŸ™‚ (Christy’s question)

6. I’ve recently been asked to contribute to as a guest expert. Woot!

7. My son has me completely drawn into the world that is Total Drama Island. We’ve just started season 2 and for some reason, I’m hooked. I’m sure this will lead to the further decline of my intelligence…

Many thanks to Sonya for nominating me, it was a big bright spot to wake up to this morning. I’d like to pass the award along to the following:

Tracie from From Tracie

Christy from Uplifting Families

Andrea from Good Girl Gone Redneck

Jamee from A New Kind Of Normal

Echo from Domain Of The Mad Mommy

Stacey from This Momma’s Ramblings

April from 100lb Countdown

Beth from Structure In An Unstructured Life
