The Sunshine Blogger Award


Thank you to the fabulous Natalie for nominating us for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Check out her blog for lots of fun things Disney. We’ve been so busy lately that it’s been hard to keep up with our blog but know we are trying so keep checking back in for the latest from us. Also check back in to see how our Halloween Horror Nights trip went. We leave the last week in October!


1.Answer the questions the blogger that nominated you.

2.Nominate some bloggers.

3.Ask them some questions.


1.What is a movie you can watch over and over again without getting bored?

Hmmm…. This one is really hard. I typically won’t watch movies over and over again so I have no answer for this!

2.You can be a character in your favorite book for a day. What book would it be, what character would you be and why?

I’d probably choose one of the Harry Potter books because I love Hermoine. Plus I think it would be cool to ride on a broomstick and use magic!

3.What are you most looking forward to this fall?

I am looking forward to all the things pumpkin and apple related. Apple Cidar, apple donuts, apple crisp, pumpkin spice coffee, I love all of it!

4.What is the food you can’t stand at ALL?

Eggs. I won’t eat them and I absolutely can not stand the smell. It also doesn’t matter how they are cooked, the smell will always make me gag!

5.What is your favorite makeup trend?

I don’t really know. I think all the Halloween and Fall inspired nails. Is that considered makeup?

6.Name two of your favorite Disney movies!

Beauty and the Beast


7.Favorite subject?


8.How about least?


9.What is your favorite animal?

Dogs, specifically German Sheperds.

10.Do you have any pet peeves?

I have so many that I wouldn’t be able to list them all. One of my biggest pet peeves is when I paint my nails and end up smudging them. Unfortunately it happens almost everytime I paint my nails.

11.Do you like Halloween? Yes or no and why?

I do like Halloween. It’s Dave’s favorite holiday and I enjoy seeing him have fun with it.

Now it’s time to nominate some bloggers!

  2. Answer the 10 questions your nominator has provided.
  3. Nominate 10 other bloggers.
  4. Create 10 questions for your nominees and notify them of their nomination.

Time for the Questions-

1.Describe yourself in 3 words

Strange, goofy and out-going

2. What made you decide to start blogging?

I started blogging as a hobby, something constructive to do with my time. Now it’s really become an outlet for me.

3. Where do you want to travel the most?

Italy…. it’s on the very top of my bucket list.

4. What does music mean to you in your life?

I enjoy listening to music but I don’t find it much of an outlet for me. I can’t read music and I have never played an instrument before. 

5. What made you happy today?

The way my nail art look came out made me happy. Also the hubby came home early so that’s always a plus!

6. What was the last book you read?

It’s been so long that I don’t even know. I haven’t been able to find anything I’ve really been into lately.

7. Which products (skin care , hair and stuff) you use everyday ?

I use on a daily basis shampoo, conditioner and a heat spray for my hair. I also use facial wipes, cleanser and moisturizer for my face. I am always switching  out the brands though. 

8. What is your favourite food?

My favorite food would have to be stuffing, but I prefer homemade stuffing to the boxed ones. 

9. Do you enjoy blogging ?

I absolutely love blogging. It’s become a very enjoyable hobby for me. 

10. Your favourite makeup product ?

Hmmm….. that’s a tough question! I don’t really have a favorite brand but as far as products I’d have to say heat spray. I use my hair straightener and blow dryer far more than any person should! It’s not really a makeup but it’s used daily. Other than that lipgloss….. I love me some lipgloss!
