You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Gray

sunshine1Good things come in twos says Fox Crime (or was that Universal?).  After having participated in the Liebster Award nomination, another beautiful lady with an awesome blog nominated me for a You Are My Sunshine Award.  (Squeal!) Such fun! 😀 “Sunshine”, don’t you just love that word? ❤

Emz is an amazing ESL teacher in Cebu, Philippines who wears her heart on her blog. She recently got engaged too, so when you hop over to her blog you might want to congratulate her as well ❤

Emz, daghang salamat for this award 🙂 I accept this too with the broadest grin of gratitude on my face.  (And a spontaneous body roll because ‘sunshine’ is just one of those favorite words of mine. LOL!)

The Rules:

  • Thank the person/people who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions from your nominators.
  • Nominate eleven other bloggers
  • Give them eleven questions.
  • You could check out the blogs I nominated and follow them if you like.

Here are my answers:

  1. Describe yourself in three words. playful, a little eccentric at times, quite stubborn
  2. What do you blog about? pieces of my life that I’m comfortable putting out there
  3. Coffee or tea? Coffee. It’s a love-hate relationship.
  4. Lights on or lights off? Off. I can’t sleep well if it’s not pitch black.
  5. Morning or evening? Morning.  I like to be the first one up 🙂
  6. What can you not live without? Music. I’m very into mainstream pop, upbeat tunes mostly.  The day just isn’t right if I don’t have music blaring from my speakers.
