My day was totally brightened yesterday when I opened my email to a note from Ashley that she listed my blog on her Sunshine Award list. Even though google stats tell me that my blog is getting visitors it's still generally hard to believe and I'm sometimes convinced that it must just be spambots. Thanks for reading guys!!!
There are some rules for accepting this award. They seem to be:
1. Thank the person who nominated you. Easy. THANK YOU ASHLEY! Go check out her blog and give her some love, I've enjoyed following her since I found her blog.
2. Answer 10 questions about your favorites
Animal: sheep (they MAKE wool, what's not to love!)
Nonalcoholic beverage: Shirley Temple--they go best with Mexican food
Facebook or Twitter: Facebook
My passion: knitting (possibly this is obvious)
Getting or giving: Getting, presents rock
Pattern: Usually whatever I just finished, therefore Pear Drop
Day of the week: Sunday
Flower: Roses (again, possibly this would be easy to guess)
Country: I haven't been there since I was 14, but I would love to go back to Spain as an adult (if I can be called an adult... I'm still skeptical about that.)
3. Name 10 blogs you love and tell them they have received the sunshine award as well. I follow about 100 blogs (I'm nosey, I like to see what you're doing) so it's hard to narrow it down, but here are a few of my favorites:
Peter's Knitting With a Y
Brianna's Whoa Nelly
Ashley's Make It Love It
Kristen's The Sunny Side of the Street
I don't know who runs The Gauge Wars, but it's great.
Erin's The Knitting Squid
Tawnee's Random Knits
Stacey's Fresh Stitches
Ryan's (yes my Ryan's) An Improbable Fiction
It was fun to open my mail to Ashley's surprise and I had fun revisiting everyone's blogs to gather my list. Really guys, thanks for reading!
