Last weekend, I was nominated for a Sunshine Award by Kelly of Transforming A New You. If you are looking for some inspiration to start DOING the things you have always dreamed of, head on over to her blog and you will get it. She is newer to the blogosphere but is making a splash by holding herself accountable to the things she wants from life.
She chose the following questions for me to answer:
1. If you had to get another, or your first tattoo, what would it be of and why?
Honestly, there is no physical design that I like enough to have on my body forever, and just I don't feel the desire to add anything to my body. The closest thing I can think of to working for me would be a very simple, small cross, to symbolize my belief in Christ, but I don't think I will ever do it! I figure God likes me the way I am, so I don't need to mark myself unless I really feel driven to.
2. Where has been the favorite place you have visited, and why?
I loved Costa Rica, because it was so extremely peaceful while also having a lot of vibrancy and wildlife!

3. Wine or beer?
Wine! I get sneezy from certain types of beer, so I prefer to play it safe and go for red wine. Malbec is my favorite. If I am feeling celebratory, I will indulge in some champers!
4. If you could invent a holiday, what would it be?
I think everyone's birthday should be a WAY bigger deal. I am a huge birthday person, so I wish they were more holiday-ish so I could throw a party for everyone I love!

5. What do you do to recharge?
Workout, write, pray. POWER NAP (20 minutes or less)
6. What did you learn from your mother?
How to break into my car when I lock my keys inside, among other things. My mother is superwoman who is simultaneously nurturing and pretty badass, so I can't even begin the list of things she taught me! (Also: she's a teacher. So. Yeah).
|AND she's pretty, too!|
7. What do you love most about the city you live in?
What I love about West Michigan is the summers... it is a beachside paradise of pristine, white beaches and clear water.
Chicago is my other home, and I'll never let it go! I love the excitement and energy I get from that city.
8. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully I will be a published novelist with my marketing consulting business still going strong! But, most of all, I just hope I will have grown my heart, relationships, and skills in some way.
Instead of nominating other bloggers, I'm just going to ask YOU GUYS to respond in the comments! Here's what I challenge you to answer:
1. Spicy or sweet?
2. What is your favorite vacation spot and why?
3. Pilates or Yoga?
4. Are you a morning person or a night person?
5. What is your favorite book and why?
6. What's your TV guilty pleasure?
