Sunshine Award 2011


Alexa and I are honored to have received the Sunshine Award 2011 from Kristina over at Beancakes. If you haven't already, be sure to check out her blog!

I loved reading her answers to these fun questions, so here are mine:

1. Favorite color: The color of the ocean in Hawaii.
2. Favorite animal: Ian and I want to get a Boxer.We have been mulling over names and George (after my late paternal grandfather) is a serious contender.
3. Favorite number: 3!
4. Favorite drink {alcohol free}: Arnold Palmer (half iced tea, half lemonade).
5. Twitter or Facebook: Facebook. I find I use it more and more to stay in touch as I get older.
6. My passion: Reading. I have been a book worm my whole life.
7. Giving or receieving presents: Giving! I have been known to purchase gifts months in advance. Confession: I have a few Christmas gifts stored away already. And yes, I realize it's August.
8. Favorite pattern: I will always be a stripes girl, but I have recently been crushing on chevron.
9. Favorite day: Saturday. Specifically Saturday morning when the whole weekend looms ahead.
10. Favorite flower: Calla lilies. After my first visit to see Ian back east (we spent summers apart during college) I missed my flight and didn't arrive home until nearly two days later. When I did arrive, two dozen calla lilies were waiting for me from Ian.

Alexa and I would like to pass along the award to these lovely ladies:

Aww I have a boxer and she is the best (I'm not biased at all lol). They have the sweetest most playful personalities and the cutest butt wiggles when they're excited.
Hope you get one soon :)
