You gotta love February. Not just because of Valentine’s day but because of all the wacky stuff that happens in the twenty-some-odd days that it is. Just when I thought things couldn’t get any brighter, along comes Grace from With Some Grace to nominate me for the Sunshine Award.
Apparently, she thinks I’m worthy.
In her post she states the nominees are “Bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”. I think the only thing that’s positive, creative or inspirational about my blog is it’s audience – seriously. Then again, it takes one to know one, right? So here goes…
Favorite time of year: It would have to be Aruba. Yes, I realize it’s not a time of year but at any time of year, it’s better than feeling Minnesota.
Favorite festive movie: The Forbidden Zone. What?! It always gets me roarin’ to celebrate St. Patrick’s day, April Fool’s Day, Halloween and Christmas. It’s got sausages, Chicken-boy, PMS cramps and Herve Villachaiz – you try celebrating without it.
What is your passion: Maintaining a healthy state of mind while living with this guy:
Favorite color: Amber, stout – sometimes pale ale.
Favorite time of day: Hands down – Happy Hour.
Favorite flower: Audrey II. Because she’s the only flower I can actually name.
Favorite non-alcoholic beverage: When there’s a beverage that can’t be mixed with alcohol, let me know. That would be it. For now, it’s probably breast milk because I made it without drinking it.
Favorite physical activity: Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge with kids. It’s mentally challenging as well.
Favorite vacation: Amsterdam – the first and last vacation my husband and I took as a couple and acted pretty much like our kids now. Nothing like roaming the home of Heineken and drinking coffee with space cake to feel like a goober.
What piece of advice would you give to a 20 year old you? I’d say to myself, “Dumb ass, don’t be so stubborn and listen to your mom and dad. Otherwise, it’s gonna bite you in the butt when you’re a parent. Payback is some serious shit.”
