Sunshine Award

OMG, Apples and Peanut Butter (one of the sweetest blogs on the planet) has nominated The House That Built Us for the Sunshine Award!  I'm so flattered, and this has made my day (and week, and month...).  It's so great that the bloggers in this community are so supportive of each other!


The Sunshine Award is given from bloggers to "Bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere."  Wow, creative and inspirational were two words that I would not have used to describe myself 2 months ago.

Okay, so here's how the award works.  First, you should thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.  Next, answer the following questions about yourself.  Then, choose 10 of your favorite bloggers and link their blogs to your post.  Be sure to let them know that you are nominating them for the award.  Last, be sure to copy and paste the award to your blog! 

Now for the questions:

1.  Favorite color-  Pink, light and rosy

2.  Favorite animal-  Dogs, especially boxers.  So sweet, so loyal, and so crazy!

3.  Favorite number-  29, because I'm going to be that age for the rest of my life

4.  Favorite Drink-  Diet Coke, but I'm trying to quit!

5.  Facebook or Twitter-  Pinterest

6.  Good book or good movie-  Good movie, but at the theater, with $30 worth of popcorn and candy

7.  My passion-  Being a wife and mother, I'm so blessed to have my family

8.  Giving or getting gifts-  Giving, for sure.  I've been known to set my credit cards on fire during the holiday from overuse!

9.  Favorite day-  Every other Friday, the ones that I have off work!

10.  Favorite flower-  Peony

Now, the 10 blogs that I would like to give the Sunshine Award to, in no particular order, are:

Here's To Handy Andy (love her positivity!)
Creatively Living (nicest girl I know)
Quirky Vistas (hilarious storyteller posts)
A Vintage Fairy (magically adorable)
A Pumpkin and A Princess (very talented)
The House Made Home (this girl keeps it real!)
Romance On A Dime (she's a planning machine)
Bare Feet On The Dashboard (sweet southern mama)
Little House In The Big D (cute couple, cute dogs, cute blog)
Twigg Studios (she's seriously amazing)
Raising Oranges (a true giving soul)

(ok, so I did 11)
 Check these lovely ladies, they are all so inspiring to me and I'm sure you'll agree!
