Sunshine Blogger Award

Hello! *waves excitedly*  So last week I was tagged by Sarah at "Life of a Homeschooler" (you really should check out her blog, its adorable and I love it), with the Sunshine Award!  In the past, as you are all well aware, I usually put off writing these tag post thingies for weeks a long, long, long, long time.  But this one looked so cheery and springy and happy that I simply couldn't put it off more than a few days!

This house looks like sunshine, doesn't it?  It looks like a good place to begin an adventure!

Sarah's questions:

1.) Do you like primary, pastel, or neon colors best?
Okay, so I'm not really a huge fan of primary colors.  I suppose I'd lean more towards pastels, but I like bright, vibrant colors, too, so probably a mixture of those together.   


 Like this gorgeous bouquet, actually!  That's perfect!

2.) What was the last movie you watched in the movie theater?
Ugh.  Despicable Me 2.  I did not enjoy that movie, sorry if you loved it!  I saw it, hmmm....3 years ago?  I was visiting my "city" aunt with a couple of my cousins and apparently that was the only movie worth viewing at the time.  Oh well, it could've been worse.  As a general rule, though, I'm not a huge fan of theater movies. I actually kind of go into panic-mode! Between the huge, bright screen in a dark place, strange people, and the incredible volume, I would much prefer to watch a movie from my living room couch!

3.) What is your favorite kind of weather, sunny, rainy, cloudy, etc.?
That is a tough question.  Ordinarily, I would say rainy, although I have a tendency of being fickle about my favorite weather ;)  If I wake up and the sky is brightest blue, the sun is shining and the birds are singing, I'm all like, "I love days like this!".  Then the next day it's dark and cloudy, maybe spitting an occasional sprinkle, I've got a good book, cup o' tea and a blanket, and I'm like, "I love days like this!".  So yeah, don't ask, it all depends ;)

 I'd say this is me in a rain shower, except I wouldn't use the umbrella.  It is common knowledge that dancing with an umbrella is cumbersome and probably dangerous, too ;)

4.)  Who is your favorite Disney princess?  Do they have a live-action movie?  If so, do you like the cartoon or live-action better?
You had to go and ask me this question!  I have three favorites, how can I possibly choose between them!?  Fine, since you're forcing me, my favorites are Rapunzel, Aurora, and Cinderella!

 "But don't you know me? Why, We've met before!"
"We have?"
"Yes! You said so yourself, 'once upon a dream'!"

 As to the second part of your question, only Cinderella has a live-action movie and I thought it was AWESOME!  Such amazing colors and visual presentation!  It was splendid!

 Oh yes I did find THAT scene!

But as far as my favorite animated movie, that goes to Tangled!  That is one of my favorite movies of all time ever!  And that's saying a lot.

5.)  Are you a morning person or do you like to sleep in?
 Uhhhhhhh.... No, no I am not a morning person, at least not on purpose.  Then again, though, I don't really like to sleep in late, either, at least not really late.  Really late for me is like, 9 o'clock!
6.)  What social media site do you use most often?
Pinterest.  Pinterest is social media, right?  I don't know, maybe it isn't.  I don't really use anything else remotely social media related!
7.)  Is there a fictional character who you wish had a blog?
I.....don't think so, no.
8.)  Coffee or tea?
Tea, all the way!!!  Tea is the best.  I do drink coffee on occasion, more often when my sister is around, but not by habit, ordinarily.  I like it, though, especially iced!

9.)  Do you have a favorite teenager post?
I can't say that I have a specific favorite, but I've seen a few I thought were funny.  Like these ones:

YESYESYESYESYES!    Google Image Result for <a href="http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lu8p059zmj1qiaqpmo1_500.png" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">25.media.tumblr.c...</a>i love that but then people think i am crazy and look at me strange, oh well there choice:

10.)  Can you think of a favorite song of yours that has the word "Sunshine" in it?
The first that came to mind was John Denver's "Sunshine On My Shoulder".  It's pretty and I like to sing it, but not my favorite!

 "Loch Lomond", now that is one of my favorites, and there is a line towards the middle about "sunshine".  This is actually the song that got me into Celtic music!  I know pretty much the whole thing from memory, it's so pretty!  Have a listen and let me know if you like it :)

 And that concludes this extraordinarily loooooong post!  Thanks, Sarah, those were super fun questions!  If anyone else wants to have a go at answering any or all of them, consider yourself tagged ;)  If you do, leave a comment or link to your own post, I'd love to hear your answers!
