Sunshine Award!

Aw! I am bee-yond excited!!! Actually am giddy to the highest level!!

In my four years of blogging, I finally received my first award ever in the blogging world. 
 I got the "Sunshine Award".

Teresa of Smart and Simple Organizing has chosen me as one of her sunshine awardees.  

Like I have said, I've never received a blogging award before and I am so thankful to Teresa for choosing me and for taking time to read my blogs.  I am very flattered...

It's really nice to know that somebody out there is actually reading my blog (i thought  it was just me, lol!)

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.  Favorite color - Yellow! Since I was a child, I've been a yellow color fanatic.  I don't know why but it makes my day brighter ~ like the sun and it makes me feel happier....wink ***

I have yellow belts and yellow ballet flats that I use as my pop-out color on my attire in some days.  I have been on a search of buying a yellow purse.
My favorites are:
Michael Kors Tote - it's $298, gotta save some money or wait 'till this goes on sale!
Gianni Bini Hobo - it's $49.50 on sale at Dillards, originally $99 ( i might get this but have to see it in person first)
Antonio Melani Tote - it's $49.50 on sale at Dillards,  originally $99
Okay! Let's not be sidetracked, on to the next question....

2.  Favorite animal - idk, I am not really into animals or pets, no offense meant to all the pet lovers in the world...but a favorite animal? uhmm...maybe a dog...because they are cute to look at, especially the fluffy cute!

3.  Favorite number -  7! because it seems to be my lucky number...

4.  Favorite drink - Mountain Dew baby!! not the diet one, the regular mountain dew ~ i like to enjoy the "real thing"

5.  Facebook or Twitter - Facebook!  I don't get twitter, it's like texting a message to the whole world.
I haven't tried it though and not a single one of my friends that is into twitter that I know of.

6.  Good book or good movie - Good movie definitely! I like comedy-romance and chick flicks kind of movies.

I am such a huge fan of Channing Tatum, he is such a hottie!!! My husband refers Channing as his wife's boyfried, lol!!
  I used to read good books before I had my husband and my kids, but things changed and I'd rather spend time with them than reading a book.

7.  My passion - my hubby and my kids! They are my everything!! and of course blogging about organizing and designing and anything that pops into my head.

8. Giving or getting gifts - Giving! I love litting up other people's eyes when they get one!
Especially my kids, when I tell them I have a surprise for them and let them close their eyes and then give them a present (little things, like a piece of chocolate, an ice cream bar, etc)....
my-oh-my! I love to see their surprise faces!priceless! 

I like getting gifts too ~ on anniversaries, valentines day and birthdays, we could use some "bling-bling" here and "bling-bling" there! haha

9.  Favorite day - Fridays! Because it's the last day of the workweek and I know that there will be two days after Friday that I could spend fun times with my hubby and my kids!!

10.  Favorite flower - Roses!  I just love roses ~ thorns not included :)

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) Smart and Simple Organizing

2) IHeart Organizing

3) A Thoughtful Place

4) Honey We're Home

5) Decor Chick

6) Lovely Organization

7) Simply Savvy

8) Chaotically Creative

9) Just a Girl

10) Young House Love

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 Teresa for awarding me the Sunshine Award!

On the side note, I had a lot of fun answering the questions and choosing my 10 blogs ~ all of these blogs are my daily inspiration to organize even more.  I don't read the news everyday because it makes me feel down and sad, rather I read these blogs and it makes me inspired!

My life is happier to find some new friends here in the blogworld.
