Sunshine Award

It's been a lucky week!  First I was awarded the Liebster Blog Award and then I was also awarded the Sunshine Award! 

Carri at Simply Done Wright was so sweet to give me this award.  It's a privilege to have her supporting my blog.

The Sunshine Award is given from bloggers to bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.  I'm touched that you feel I inspire others through my blog Carri!  Thank you very much for this award!

So here's how the award works:

First, you should thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.  Next, answer the following questions about yourself.  Then, choose 10 of your favourite bloggers and link their blogs to your post.  Be sure to let them know that you are nominating them for the award.  Last, be sure to copy and paste the award to your blog!

Here are my answers to the questions:

1.  Favourite colour - I LOVE purple (can you tell from all the purple on the blog?!)

2.  Favourite animal - polar bears

3.  Favourite number - hmm...haven't had one of these for awhile... let's say 21 because it's my birthday

4.  Favourite drink - I actually only really drink water these days.  I love how refreshing it is and it's so healthy for you!  I also have the occasional glass of white wine :)

5.  Facebook or Twitter - totally Facebook.  I will eventually probably get on Twitter but I just don't care to spread my online time too thin right now and I'm loving having a Facebook page for the blog!

6.  Good book or good movie - I love both!  All time favourite movie is Sound of Music.  Can't pick a favourite book...there are just too many to choose from :)

7.  My passion - organizing things!

8.  Giving or getting gifts - Giving.  Love making someone else's day.  But I have to say getting gifts from my hubby and kids is pretty special too :)

9.  Favourite day - Saturday.  It's the only morning we aren't rushing off somewhere and we usually have a nice slow start (i.e. sleep in!)

10.  Favourite flower - tulips (and anything purple!)

So there are some things you probably didn't know about me.  These awards are a neat way to share things about ourselves that wouldn't necessarily come up in our posts or "about me" pages. 

Here are the 10 blogs that I would like to give the Sunshine Award to (in no particular order):

1.  Debt Free Mommy
2.  Smart and Simple Organizing
3.  Naptime Review
4.  Bean Bug Crafts
5.  Domestic Bliss Diaries
6.  Two in Diapers
7.  Our Delightful Home
8.  Cornerstone Confessions
9.  Motivated Mommy of Two
10.  Adventures of a DIY Mom

I find inspiring things on each of these blogs!  Please check out their wonderful blogs and see all the great things they have shared.

Congrats to all of you.  You deserve it!

Thanks again to Carri for awarding me the Sunshine Award! 

Happy organizing!
