The Sunshine Award

I recently got the Sunshine Award from Janetha. And I think she said it best: “this takes me back about four years ago in old school blogging days when these award things were commonly passed around. now days blogging seems so formal with reviews and tutorials and the like.. so a little award fun is just what i need!” I completely agree!

Sunshine Award



1. Include award logo in a post or on your blog.
2. Link to the person who nominated you.
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
4. Nominate 10 bloggers to receive the award and ask them 10 questions.

Here are the questions Janetha asked!

1. do you believe in aliens? why or why not. No. Why? Ummmm I just don’t? haha. I guess I do believe that life exists elsewhere in the great universe but not like scary, take-over-our-brains, type of aliens. 

2. if you could do ANYTHING in the world and have that be your career and your skills, paycheck, or anything else was not an object.. what would you do? Honestly I really like my current gig – online advertising. But that’s kind of a boring answer – so I guess I’d pick doing something where I can complete flexibility with my hours and location. I’m a total homebody and like to be able to come and go as I please. That doesn’t work in Corporate America! 

3. what is your earliest childhood memory? Visiting my grandmother (my dad’s mom) in hospice. She was in a bed and my parents lifted me up to give her a kiss and she said she loved me. I must have been 2 or 3, I think? It’s the only memory I have of her since she passed shortly thereafter so it’s special to me that’s my earliest memory. 

4. what’s for dinner tonight? No clue. I think I’ll dig through Cook’s Illustrated – I recently signed up for a online membership!

5. what was the most fabulous vacation you have ever been on in your entire life? My trip to Oregon last month is definitely at the top of the list. There was a lot of variety (outdoors, city, busy-ness, relaxation, running, wine and friends!). I also loved visiting Rome, Paris and Switzerland in 2007!

6. if you HAD to give up one of your senses (touch, taste, sight, hearing, or smell) which would it be? ummmm none? I guess maybe smell if I had to choose.

7. would you rather always be super freezing cold or ridiculously overheating hot? (and no, you can’t have a warm blanket or AC to combat the issue!) overheating hot!

8. why did you start blogging? I loved sharing my favorite meals and workouts on my family/friends blog. And when “strangers” started commenting on it, I loved the community I felt. So  I started A Foodie Stays Fit to get even more connected to this like-minded community. And I’ve made so many wonderful friends through it! I love sharing bits of my life and travels too – I don’t think my blog is as health focused as it used to be, perhaps because it’s not an effort to live that way anymore; it’s just become part of life. So it’s just one bit of my life I share here!

9. what was the last compliment you received and what was the last one you paid to someone? yikes I don’t know! 

10. what is your most favorite thing to eat? Mmmmm that’s a tough one. It depends on my mood, but I consistently like seared salmon, a medium-rare steak or really fresh clams/mussels/oysters.
