Sunshine Blogger Award

    Sunshine Blogger Award

    Kay the Barefoot Minimalist nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger award. Thanks Kay :-)

    Now, on to Kay’s questions. If you read Kay’s blog, you know that they are going to be interesting….

    #1 Be honest. What is the highest amount of Oreos (or a similar type cookie if you don’t like Oreos) that you’ve ever eaten in one sitting?

    A row. A sleeve. A third of the package. Whatever you want to call it.

    That would be 12 cookies.

    I had to stop by Wal-Mart to figure out the actual number because counting the number of cookies I consume contradicts my “I don’t eat too many cookies” stance. And that is why we don’t have Oreos in our house anymore. :-)

    Did you know Oreos have their own Instagram account?

    #2 How old were you when you had your first kiss and where were you at the time?

    I was 12 and it was in the tree house with Robbie :-)

    #3 What did you want to be when you grew up and did you end up being it?

    I wanted to be a lawyer, which I find quite humorous now because I’m painfully shy and hate speaking in front of people. So I became a CPA – the perfect job for someone who wants to hide in a corner with their computer.

    #4 What was your favorite toy when you were a kid?

    My Cabbage Patch Kid. Do you remember those things? I thought it was the coolest doll ever!

    #5 How old were you when you had the most fun you can remember?

    How old am I now? I try to do something fun every year and raise the bar. It’s a little challenge I gave myself when I turned 40 :-)
