Anyone now where that song is from?
I was so very honored to have received this wonderful award from Sara from Le Petit Village. She is also an American in France and her stories can always make me laugh. Stop by and say 'hi'.
Sadly, this "sunshine" award is the only sunshine I've seen all week. The weather here has been cold and rainy. It's almost as if I'm living back in Manchester...
The rules of this award are that I have to answer 10 random questions before passing it on to 10 more people, so let's get to it.
Favorite Color: It seems that I don't know the answer to this one. This used to be my security question for my password at work, and when it came time to retrieve my password I failed the question. I didn't just fail it once, but many times, so many that my computer was locked and someone had to come and help me. I'm going to say blue, but who knows what I'll answer next week.
Favorite Animal: I love cats. Love them. All kinds. Tigers and Lions, oh my. But I've always wanted a koala, because they are cute and cuddly.
Favorite Number: I'm going to say 13. Everyone says it is unlucky and I like to go against the grain. Besides, it has to be lucky for somebody right?
Favorite Drink: I would love to say wine, especially living in France. If you knew, however, the amount of money I shell out for a can of diet coke at work you might fall over. (FYI a can of Diet Coke costs $2 at my office and that's cheap compared to what I would pay at a cafe).
Facebook or Twitter: I'm a Facebook gal. I just can't keep up with twitter. By the time I feel like I am caught up there are like 100 more things to read. Plus, Facebook makes it so much easier to keep up with what is going on back home.
Your Passion: Traveling. Now if I can somehow be independently wealthy so that I could just travel the world ....
Giving or getting presents? Giving. I love to pour over thinking about the "right" gifts and how excited someone will be when they open it. I am horrible, let me say that again - HORRIBLE, at receiving gifts. Just ask my husband about that.
Favorite Day? I didn't really understand the question. I'm assuming day of the week. I'm going to go with Saturday because it's pain au chocolate day.
Favorite Flower: Oh how I love lilies, but if my husband asks I love roses - lots and lots of roses.
Now comes the fun part. Sharing my little piece of sunshine with 10 other people:
My Memory Art - because she can always bring a little sunshine with her beautiful words and pictures
Femme au Foyer - She is my fellow Clermentoise Expat and she goes to a lot cooler places than me.
Scarbrough Fair - Another American expat living in Istanbul with two beautiful girls
Ava Grace's Closet - I love her style and her family is just gorgeous.
Two Bears Farm and Three Cubs - I could not handle being without power with such grace
