One of my faves Molly nominated for the Sunshine Award so of course I had to play along!
The Sunshine award rules are as follows:

1. Include the sunshine award icon in your post (above)
2. Link to the person who nominated you
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself
4. Nominate 10 bloggers to receive the award
5. Link your nominees and let them know they've been nominated  

Here are Molly's questions!
What is your favorite thing about your significant other? Oh gosh, I don't even know where to start because honestly there's quite a few things, obviously or I wouldn't have married and had two kids with him ;) But one of my favorite things, how hard he works for this family. He's so dependable. And I know that no matter what he will do everything for his family. And he will succeed. Because he's successful in pretty much everything he sets out to do. 

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up? A zoo keeper. I kid you not. In fact I still sort of want to be one. And a lawyer. I was a political science major with the plans of going to law school, but life got in the way. So my love of exotic animals and arguing make sense here huh ;) We had some exotic animals growing up (a cougar, yes in the house, two wolves, a parrot, a cappuchin monkey when we lived in bali, plus the normal stuff like dogs, cats and ferrets) helped fuel that I'm sure! 

It's 5 o'clock somewhere. What's your cocktail of choice? Amaretto sour,sangria, anything with southern comfort or  a white Russian.. Or just a glass of coooold white wine. 

What is your proudest moment in life? The moment I saw each of my children for the first time. 

Have you had your first "I am my mother" moment? If so, what was it? Oooh yes. I find myself thinking I am my mother frequently. Like whenever I use my 'stern' voice and middle name Jasper. "Jasper Andrew you have the count of three to get your shoes on..One..Two..." I also see myself a lot in Jasper. Which means I'm in for trouble. Let's just say he's got the arguing skills to be the lawyer I was supposed to.

Where is your favorite place to shop? I hope I don't have to just leave one place for this one! I love H&M, Gap, Target, J Crew, Madewell, Hazel and Olive and recently have been Loving Stitch Fix and have yet to return an item they have sent me. I haven't had a lot of time for mall shopping in months so online or target when I'm running through there (because come on, I always make time for target) is where I've been getting things lately!

If you won $100,000,000 what is the first thing you would you do with it? Easy. Europe trip with my family! And shop lots and lots while there! 

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? Stockholm, Sweden. Or maybe Goteborg, Sweden. Or maybe Switzerland even though I have  yet to even visit. Or London would do also. 

What is the best and worst gift you have ever gotten? Best.. are all from Drew, he's a good shopper for me! An ipad this past birthday was a good one! Or my 50mm lens last Christmas which really helped my love of photography grow! And worst, I seriously can't even think of one. I don't think I've ever been given a bad gift! 

What is your favorite current fashion trend? Boots! And leggings! Printed leggings! And chambray shirts! So glad those are back. I could live in a chambray shirt and leggings and boots every day.

And I nominate

Erica; To the Sea
Chelsea, Sunny with a chance of Sprinkles
Maria; Micha + Me
Kym, Travel-Babbles
aaaand apparently that's it because nap time is already over for the day! I tag anyone else that wants to answer the above questions as well!

Happy Friday! Here's to another Ikea trip for us, more unpacking/organizing and REAL fall weather!! Anyone else have equally exciting weekend plans?
