Sunshine Award

Elle at Eat, Run, Sail nominated me for a the Sunshine Award earlier this week.  Elle was one of the first blogs I followed and I have always enjoyed it.  She also has a food blog called We Can Begin to Feed where she posts lots of great recipes.  If you haven't already check her out!

The award is circulated to those bloggers to let them know that their posts brighten your day.

The Rules:

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. Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs letting them know they’ve been nominated.

Here are the questions Elle asked, and my answers to them:
  1. Best childhood memory?   Wow this is a hard one.  I have so many great childhood memories. I would say lots of my favorite ones were working on the ranch with my family while growing up.  We spent a lot of time horseback chasing cows, building and fixing miles and miles of fences, and hours were spent in tractors going in circles around fields. 
  2. Nicest time of year? Fall!  Love the cooler temps and the way the air smells.  It all feels so amazing after being cooked in the summer.
  3. Favorite flower? Wild sunflowers.  So cheerful along the sides of the road.
  4. Scary food you would never ever even taste? Haggis, balut, cockscomb, and bat paste.
  5. Zodiac sign? Sagitarius, the archer! 
  6. What spice would describe you? Nutmeg.
  7. Snooze button or jump out of bed? Jump out of bed.  I love morning! I love my quiet time in the morning before anyone else is up.
  8. Morning drink? Coffee with milk.  Cow milk, coconut or almond sometimes with whipped cream.  Just give me my coffee!
  9. Song that means something special to you?
  10. Secret crush? Oddly Tim Tebow, and I am not that big of a football person, I just really thought he was awesome.  So sad to see him not stay with a team, he is a class act.
