The Sunshine Award

The wonderful Amy, over at Small Budget Beauty has nominated me for The Sunshine Award! I'm so excited and thankful for it, so thank you very much Amy! You're awesome :)

So what is the Sunshine Award? It's an award given to those who inspire us and bring sunshine into our lives. That's pretty cool!

There are a few rules as well:
- Include the award logo in your blog post
- Link to the person who nominated you
- Answer 10 questions about yourself
- Nominate other bloggers

Here are the 10 questions from Amy!

1. What is your favorite time of the year? 
This is a tough question because I pretty much love all seasons and whatnot, but I love the month of December because it's Christmas time, and my birthday! 

2. What do you like most about blogging?
I like that I get to have the creative freedom of writing about what I love. Even when life gets busy, I still love sitting down and writing up a post!

3. Do you match your toe nail color to your finger nail color?
Gotta be honest, I haven't painted my toenails in years! Sad, I know but I can't be bothered with it. I barely paint my fingernails

4. What is your favorite quote?
I'm going with Amy's and that is "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you." We need to have more people in this world follow this quote

5. Do you save old greeting cards and letters, or throw them away?
I used to save old birthday cards and some Christmas cards, but I don't know what happened to them. I don't remember taking them with me when I moved out of my parent's house, so they could've gotten thrown out

6. What is something about yourself that you hope will change, but probably never will?
This question is kinda deep man! Wow. Honestly, probably me wanting to better my life. I think in my head so much that eventually I'll have a better job that I love, I'll live in a nice house and drive a nice car and live comfortably. I just don't have the drive most times to make all that I want to happen, actually happen. Most of what I want is pretty unattainable anyways, but hey, I guess I can still dream

7. What is one of the scariest things you've ever done?
Get married? Lol, just kidding! Sorta. Probably actually going on my first date with my husband. I don't know if I've mentioned on here before, but my husband is my first boyfriend, first kiss, first everything really. It was pretty scary! I never ever in my life thought that when people told me, when you meet the right person you'll know, that they were right! I know this might not seem scary to most people, but for me it was!

8. If you could try out any job for a day, what would you like to try?
Hmmmm, I think being an actress seems like it would be challenging and fun. Little fact about me, when I was younger I wanted to be an actress! My parents have this picture of me standing on steps at our old, old house and I have this dress on with star shaped sunglasses and a little purse pretending to be a movie star. It's such a funny picture

9. Have you ever met any celebrities?
Technically, no. When I was at Cruefest one year, I was sitting right next to the sound area, and when Sixx:AM started playing, Kat Von D showed up there along with Bam Margera and his then wife. After Sixx:AM was finished and Motley Crue went on, James Michael and DJ Ashba from Sixx:AM were literally standing about 5 feet away from me! I was too stunned to do anything, so I didn't say hi or take any pictures :(

10. If you had an unlimited shopping spree at one store, which store would it be? 
Oh man, this is tough! If you gave me categories like makeup, clothing or shoes it would be different. If it was makeup, definitely Sephora. For clothing, it's tougher because I haven't really bought myself new clothes in a really long time. Maybe for one-stop shopping, I'll say Target, because I can get makeup there (even though Sephora is way better!), clothes, shoes, there's even a grocery section in mine (not sure if every Target has a grocery section)

This was so fun to do! Thanks again to Amy for nominating me! Now onto who I nominate:

1. Natalie Loves Beauty
