The Sunshine Blogger Award

Hola, I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I know I looked forward to it all week and it’s just lovely. It was made even lovelier when the amazing Aimee Jaine nominated me for The Sunshine Blogger Award. Thank you Aimee, I delighted to be nominated.

Sunshine-Award

So what is the award? It’s an award given to fellow bloggers who inspire others, spread positivity, encouraging, or are creative and entertaining with their writing. But here are the official rules.

The Rules:

  • Thank the persona who nominated you.
  • Answer the question the person who nominated you asked.
  • Nominate a few other bloggers
  • Ask the same amount of questions for the bloggers you nominate.
  • Notify the bloggers you nominated on their blog.
  • Put the award button on your blog.

 

Why did you start a blog?
writing has always been a passion of mine. I’ve blogged on and off for years,however recently I decided I wanted to give it another go and really stick to it. I love to be able to get my thoughts out and connecting with others. It’s something I will continue to do as long as I can.
Tea or Coffee?
Tea is my top pick, but I can drink a good cup of Joe every now and then.
Cats or Dogs? 
I’m a dog lover through and through. I have a Yorkie named Star, a Maltese named Dallas, and a Morkie named Bane. I would love a hairless cat though. Something about them intrigues me so much.
What is the meaning behind your blog name?
It’s a mash-up of some of the things that make me. I’m a geek, love video games, Comic Con, and geeky out over Harry Potter among other loves. I love all things glamorous, and fitness has become important for me.
Do you have any special skills?
My special skill is being a mother to 4 boys ranging from the ages of 15-6 months. I tell you no one really prepares you for motherhood, but I’m loving every minute of it. I’m also extremely good at coming in last on Call of Duty, one day I’ll be on top of the leader board, one day.
Lipstick or Mascara? 
Mascara, never leave the house without applying mascara. It makes the biggest difference with my eyes. Even when I’m tired and wanting to climb back in bed a bit of mascara opens up my eyes a bit more.
Hair up or down? 
Usually up in a bun I have to take down and redo a million times a day. The struggle of having long thick hair is real y’all.
Favourite annual holiday and why? 
It has to be Thanksgiving. There’s family and friends at home, tons of amazing food, and football. How can you not love a day filled with pumpkin pie, good conversation, and the Cowboys.
Favourite quote?
What can’t you live without?
Oh wow this is a tough one. I want to say bacon but I know I would get use to that eventually. I’m going to say my phone. It has everything, pictures/videos of my family, ideas I have for upcoming posts, all my social media accounts, email, and texts. I think it would take some adjustment to be without it.
Favourite TV show? 
Another tough one!! Well The Walking Dead of course. I’m also into Downton Abbey, The Strain, The Leftovers, Silicon Valley, and Hannibal right now. There are others but now these are the ones that occupy whatever free time I have.

Currently…. Saturday Edition

Hello. I’ve recently seen on Instagram a few of what I’m calling “currently” posts in which people lists what they’re currently watching, doing, listening to, et cetera. So I’ve decided to incorporate that idea here. Every now and then I’ll make a “currently’ post and list a few of my currents. I think there may be a link up for this also and if so I would love to be get linked up. If you know of it, or are involved with it let a sista know.

Listening to: The thunderstorm outside

Just finished: My health homework

Weather: Disgustingly humid with on and off thunderstorms.

Anticipating: The first day of school. My oldest starts high school, and the middle child begins middle school. I will be a ball of emotions Monday morning.

Entertained by: Baby Squish is trying to crawl. He gets up on his hands and knees and rocks back and forth until he tires himself out. My baby is trying so hard.

Want to cook: I want to try a cauliflower alfredo sauce recipe I came across. I’ll be sure to post it here once I do.

Feeling: Anxious! I had an important meeting yesterday and am dying to receive feedback.

Watching: Hannibal season 1. I am finally getting around to watching this and I’m so excited. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a horror/suspense fan.

There you have them a few of my currents. I may add a few more categories in future posts.

 

What are you currently doing? Tell me about your current TV shows, things you’re looking forward to, anything you’re currently excited about or looking forward to.
