A little bit of sunshine on this Monday...

I am beyond flattered right now, y'all.  Like for real.  I had seen this little award floating around last week in blogland and instagram, so imagine my surprise when I was reading one of my fave blogs yesterday and I see my name flashing back at me in her post!  I was seriously tickled pink!  I was nominated by one of my favorite bloggers, Lori at FATTOFIT41, for a Sunshine Award.  I have followed Lori since she first started blogging and instantly fell in love with her!  She is real.  She is driven.  But most of all, she is an inspiration.  I can only hope to one day share a glass (or two) of wine with her! :) 
Anyway, the rules of the award are as follows:
The award is circulated to those bloggers to let them know that their posts brighten your day.

1. Include the award logo on your post or blog
2. Link to the person who nominated you - Lori @ FATTOFIT41
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
4. Nominate 10 bloggers to receive the award. Link your nominees in your post and leave them a comment letting them know that they have been nominated.

There you have it!  Now on to my 10 questions:

1. Your "first time", regret or no regret:  Well, I would hope I don't regret it...because I'm going to let you in on a little secret here...considering I started dating my husband when we were 15 and 16, he's the only one I've ever been with! (cat is outta the bag!)  So, that said, I definitely don't regret it!! ;)

2. Best concert you have ever been to:  I would have to say it was the Jason Aldean concert I went to with my Mom and Sister this past April...even though I love Jason, it wasn't so much him that made it the best concert, it was the bonding time I got to have with my two favorite girls!!

3. Vanilla or chocolate:  Chocolate.  Hands down.  (I literally am devouring the last fudge brownie from a pan I made on Friday afternoon as we speak...whoops) #innerfatgirlishappy

4. Dream Car:  Y'all.  I will own this car someday...
A Black Cadillac Escalade with chrome wheels and trim.  She will be mine... ;)
5. Have you ever been in a fist fight:  Three words: I hate confrontation. (I couldn't hurt a fly!)

6. Tropical vacation or ski vacation:  Give me a beach, a cocktail and a swimsuit and I am as happy as a clam!  (That, and I'm uncoordinated as all get out, so I wouldn't be caught dead on the ski slopes!!)

7. Do you still speak to your high school bff:  Well, considering she is my first cousin and I see her at all of our family functions, I do!  We definitely aren't as close as we used to be, but I do still love her!
8. Cake or pie:  Give me a big 'ol piece of strawberry or peach pie with a giant dollop of fresh whipped cream and I couldn't be happier!

9. Gin or Vodka in your martini:  Vodka.  Gin makes me gag... 

10. Have you ever peed your pants, as an adult:  I'm going to be flat out honest with this one...Even though I haven't full out peed my pants, I have definitely made my underpants wet from laughing too hard...the things that happen to your body "post-child birth" are nuts...

There you have it!  Now y'all have a little more random insight into who I am...

Now here are my nominees:

1.) Stefanie @ Stealing Sweet Kisses
2.) Christi @ The Chapters of Our Lives
3.) Ashley @ {Texeira Tales}

6.) Darci @ {the good life blog}
7.) Amy @ A Balancing Act
8.) Amy @ Mrs. T's Wild Ride
9.) Colleen @ Meet The Sullivans
