it’s the sunshine award!

in random rambles

this is fun! annette nominated me for the sunshine award.. this takes me back about four years ago in old school blogging days when these award things were commonly passed around. now days blogging seems so formal with reviews and tutorials and the like.. so a little award fun is just what i need!


1. Include award logo in a post or on your blog.
2. Link to the person who nominated you.
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
4. Nominate 10 bloggers to receive the award and ask them 10 questions.

here are the questions annette asked…

1. If you could be an animal, what kind would you be?

a bird. more specifically an owl. mainly because i am typically up real late and love the night. also, i just love the thought of being able to fly!

2. If you could travel anywhere (money doesn’t matter), which 1 place would you visit?

REALLY want to get to greece sooner or later. i will get there! but, if money doesn’t matter.. how about i get to travel around the world in 365 days? because 80 just isn’t enough.

3. What is your favorite grocery store?

trader joe’s! my grocery shopping life was finally complete when SLC got one last year! i used to mail TJ’s goodies home from california.. so this is much better. i go every single sunday!

4. Would you rather train your lower body or upper body?

well, i enjoy training my legs more.. but that’s because i’ve got these big ol’ strong legs. but i am laying off the leg training because they are simply too muscular for my liking at the moment. i am focusing on upper body more with lower body training limited to body weight movements (or very light weight.) i do love training my back and shoulders, though.

5. What is your all-time favorite movie?

oh, all time? that’s real tough. i love empire records. watched it, like, 50 times when i had mono in 10th grade.

6. If you’ve loved & lost before, what 1 thing did you learn about the experience? If you haven’t, what are you waiting for?!

this question is kind of confusing to me. probably because love is confusing to me. i feel like anyone i loved prior to marshall and lost wasn’t really a loss, because i had to lose that love in order to find him.

7. Who is your doppelganger?

i’m told hillary duff. i dunno about that… but she is gorg so i will take it!

8. What is your favorite sporting event to watch?

snowboarding or skateboarding.

9. What is one quality you really love about yourself?

i put others before myself. sometimes that hurts me.. and i should be selfish in some situations.. but i still think it’s a good quality.

10. Describe your perfect date?

walking around downtown, popping into random shops i’ve never been into.. not necessarily buying things, browsing is half the fun. a cooking class for two. a concert. and ice cream. always ice cream.

my turn to nominate ten of you! let’s see…

lindsay @ lindsay’s list

laura @ sprint to the table

corrie anne @ corrie anne (haha)

teri @ a foodie stays fit

lauren @ me & the mountains

paige @ your trainer paige

betty @ the sweaty betty

calee @ life + running

kerryne @ bikini bod mama

lindsay @ the lean green bean

my ten questions for you:

1. do you believe in aliens? why or why not.

2. if you could do ANYTHING in the world and have that be your career and your skills, paycheck, or anything else was not an object.. what would you do?

3. what is your earliest childhood memory?

4. what’s for dinner tonight?

5. what was the most fabulous vacation you have ever been on in your entire life?

6. if you HAD to give up one of your senses (touch, taste, sight, hearing, or smell) which would it be?

7. would you rather always be super freezing cold or ridiculously overheating hot? (and no, you can’t have a warm blanket or AC to combat the issue!)

8. why did you start blogging?

9. what was the last compliment you received and what was the last one you paid to someone?

10. what is your most favorite thing to eat?

feel free to answer these questions even if you didn’t get a tag! limiting it to ten is just not fair ;)

tomorrow is friday! yay!

only you would come up with an alien question.

Stephanie September 12, 2013 at 7:58 pm

True story: I have a Marc Sux AND a 1:37 tattoo (that is a weird sentence) inspired by Empire Records. In fact, most of my friends have the 1:37 tattoo, now that I think about it. :-)

Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine September 12, 2013 at 10:27 pm

I can see the resemblance with Hilary Duff!

Lindsay @ Lindsay's List September 13, 2013 at 6:21 am

i might actually post something next week thanks to you!

Madison September 13, 2013 at 6:33 am

Hilary Duff definitely!!! That is a major compliment and you definitely look like her. :)

purelytwins September 13, 2013 at 7:01 am

You do look like Hilary!! both so beautiful :)
and oh the hot or cold issues — we can never decide, as we like both haha

Annette@FitnessPerks September 13, 2013 at 3:22 pm

Oh my gosh, you totes look like hilary duff!!! And she IS gorgeous–as are you, so that is just fabulous.

Greece. Yes I SO want to go there tooooooo!

Natalie September 13, 2013 at 5:40 pm

I love the alien questions, but I’m totally undecided. I started blogging as a sort-of therapy. My friends and family love it, because they can keep in touch with me.

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table September 13, 2013 at 9:52 pm

Thanks for the tag!!! I’m going to have to sit down and do one of these soon. The alien question rocks.

And YES to the Hillary Duff! She’s a totally hot, btw. As are you. ;)

Corrie Anne September 13, 2013 at 10:26 pm

Woo!! I do see the Hilary Duff!!! And yes, always ice cream!!!

Paige @ Your Trainer Paige September 14, 2013 at 10:29 am

I definitely see the Hillary Duff resemblance, and yes, she is gorgeous – and so are you!

Calee February 6, 2014 at 10:03 pm

I feel like an asshole because I just now saw this! I’m updating my CV for a class I’m taking, and was looking for My 3 tips. And I’m going to definitely answer these questions soon.

Glad to see you’re taking a blogging break too. It got to be too much for me! I just write about whatever when I have time to and it’s like my scrapbook / journal.

<3 <3

PS I thought of you today. Found a Blink 182 limited edition tie-dye vinyl. Dunno if you like them (they were kinda douchey), but it was their self-titled.
