Sunshine Blog Hop!!!

I have been awarded the Sunshine Blogger Award by Doreena at: A Day in Doreen'a Life  .  Thanks Doreena!  This is a fun blog hop!!  My first that I am participating in!!!  Here is the DEAL-Y-O:
The official Sunshine Blogger Award rules are:
1. Include the award logo in blog post.
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you and include a link back to them.
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself, that you have made up yourself.
4. Nominate 10-12 bloggers and contact them at their blog site to inform them
Easy enough, right???  I hope so!!!  I am going to say that I cheated!!  I googled some questions and I am going with that! 
Let me get started with my 10 questions about myself:
1.)  When was the last time you cried?  I cried on Monday....I was laughing so hard I was crying!!!  My sister told me about a book that is narrated by Samuel Jackson, called " Go the F**K to Sleep".  Yes, that is it's name.  I youtubed it and sure enough, it came right up.  I found it HYSTERICAL!!!!  We might not all say it, but we all have thought it AT LEAST ONCE!!! :)  Funny!!!  You gotta have a sense of humor in life especially being a parent.  And since that was an easy answer, I tell you when I was pregnant, I could not watch "A Baby's Story" without crying.  Much to my husband's annoyance!  He could not understand why it made me cry and why I continued to watch it!!!  LOL!!!
2.)  Summer or Winter?  When I was a kid, I would always say summer.  I love swimming, boating, anything on the water!  But as I have grown older, I get tired of those 90+ days with 100% humidity we get in the south. (the not hair friendly days!)  Now I say winter!  I love to get snuggled up with a good sweater, some leggings and some uggs.  No, I will not give up my uggs no matter if they go out of style!!
3.) Building on question 2's answer, how many pair of Uggs do you own?  At last count, I had 10 pairs of uggs, there is probably more than that now.  And I have my eye on another pair!!!!  Don't I need zebra print uggs????
4.)  Would you break the law to save a loved one?  Obviously there is some grey area here but overall my answer would be yes.  Especially when it comes to my kids and my husband!
5.) Do you believe in soul mates?  Not in the movie sort of way.  I don't think people meet, fall in love, and it is just easy peazy the rest of their lives.  Marriage is work, marriage is compromise.  I think you find someone that accepts you for who you are, and that makes a good marriage.  Soul mates?  I am not even sure what that means.  Clint and I laugh and have fun.  I think after 16 years together that is what gets us through.  We never stay mad long, just not in our personalities to do so.  We say what we mean, there is no grey with us.  If something upsets us, we say so.  And most of all we talk.  We genuinely like one another.  I think most marriages fail because one person doesn't accept the other for who they are.  Women are especially bad about this.  I can't tell you the number of friends I have had that start out saying, when I change this about him, or when he stops doing this.....??? What???  How is that ever going to work?  If leaving the toilet seat up bothers you when you are dating, guess what, it is gonna bug the crap out of you when you are married.  Either learn to live with it.....or move on!!!  (or find a man that doesn't leave the toilet seat up...LOVE YA CLINT!!!)
6.)  If you could be an actor or a singer, which would you be?  Actress.  I can't carry a tune in a bucket!!  But I can cry on cue!  Yes, that little trick used to get my sister into a lot of  trouble growing up!!!
7.) What is your biggest fear?  Spiders.  UGH...I can't even type any more about them!!!! 
8.)  What activity makes you lose track of time?  Reading a good book.  I love to read!  I have reread "Gone with the Wind" about 10 times.  And enjoyed it every time!! 
9.)  If you could do it all over again, would you change anything?  Hmmm. I would like to think I would be smarter.  Smarter in my choices, smarter with my time.  I couldn't change to much because I think we are a product of our experiences.  I like to think that I took something away from all the experiences I had. And that made me better, smarter, stronger. 
10.)  What is the motto you try and live by?  Live and let Live.  My father always gave the best advice.  He could listen and give advice.  He could appreciate that my choices were different from his choices in life.  I try and remember this with my three boys.  They may not always make the decisions that I would make but I can respect them as people as individuals enough to know:
 this journey in life, is theirs to make.  I am only a guide. 
Okay, that wasn't to bad!!!  Now to nominate others to join!  Please visit their blogs as well!!!
