Spread a Little Sunshine...

It has been absolutely beautiful weather in Atlanta for days.... Everything is blooming (sorry if the pollen is driving you crazy but the flowers are all in bloom at the same time and  it's fabulous!!) and it has been in the 80's. My kind of weather.
Only thing better? - this kind of weather at the beach!!!
Before the weather got all sunny in ATL, I got a little Sunshine from Laurie at The Rookie Wife. She awarded my blog this fun little award and I have been MIA from blogging and a bad blog friend as I am just getting around to answering the questions and passing on the sunshine! I'm hoping she'll forgive me and be sure to go visit her blog - she is a beach-loving girl, too!

As a recipient of this delightful award, I have a few rules to follow:
  • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog. See above.
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself. See below.
  • Nominate 10-12 other fabulous bloggers. See my list below.
  • Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated. So happy to share the love!
  • Share the love and link the person who nominated you.

    I'm supposed to share my favorites in the answers to these questions!!
    1. My favorite color?? I love black and white. It is my go-to for everything.
    2. My favorite animal? My Golden Retrievers,  Biscuit and Chloe. Also, my sister owns a Camel (no, not a typo) named Cleopatra and she is pretty awesome and super sweet.
    3. My favorite number?   3
    4. My favorite non-alcoholic drink? My good friends are now cracking up... Chic Fil A Unsweetened Tea with lemon ( gotta have the lemon)   It's an addiction. I drink it by the gallons!!!
    5. Prefer Facebook or Twitter? Facebook all the way.
    6. My passion?  My family, scrapbooking our memories, travel, painting and doodling...
    7.  Favorite Pattern?  Polka Dots!! They are so happy!
    8. Favorite day of the Week??? Friday! everyone is always so happy it's Friday. It has such potential. It's the day I most often see College Girl now and when she was in HS it was football night and then post-game get togethers with friends on our porch!
    9. My favorite flower? My favorite white flower is the Magnolia but I am crazy for Blue Hydrangeas and Blue Morning Glories, too (but I am not a "blue" person in other things.)

      Thank you so much for this friendly award. You made my day. :D I always love your projects ( have noticed you haven't posted as much lately though) :D I do get that sometimes life just gets crazy and good for you that you haven't let your blog take over.
