Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone

10 October 2013

So I was nominated for a Leibster and Sunshine award by several of my favorite bloggers. I am so grateful that you lovelies would even think of me so thanks. I have been nominated for the Liebster award before but I have a few new readers and honestly I can't pass up the opportunity to talk about myself. Haha! I won't be nominating anyone because my favorite bloggers were the ones who nominated me. I will be answering the questions for both the Leibster Awards and Sunshine blogger award questions so here we go!

Questions from Kasey at Stupid Broken Eggs, Kasey nominated me for a Liebster Award

Who is you favorite person or people to confide your innermost secrets in? My husband and next to him my mom.

If infertility weren't an issue and finances are taken out of it how many kids would you have? I would have seven, 5 naturally and 2 adopted. My husband always says he wanted enough children to fill a soccer team. In the beginning I used to tell him he needed another wife. Now I would gladly give him that many children. SIGH

Questions from Aimee at Dear Harper Blog, Aimee nominated me for a Sunshine Award

What is your biggest fear? Not accomplishing my dreams.

If you could change your name, would you? To what? I always wanted to change my name as a kid just because I could not find it at Disney World on a magnet. My Dad wanted to name me Misty and I really liked it then. Now as an adult I can't picture myself being called by any other name. I like the challenge of living up to the name Charity.

If you had to dress in only one color for a month, which would you choose? Even though pink is my favorite color I have to say yellow looks best on me. I would totally wear yellow for a month.

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? My favorite ice cream flavor is butter pecan. It's so yum!

If you won the lottery would you still want to work or would you quit your job? I would totally keep going. I love photography I just wouldn't do it as much.

Books or movies? This is a tough sell, I would have to say books because they are always better than the movie.

What is your biggest pet peeve? Negligent parents and pet owners. Anyone who neglects to instill basic etiquette in their child or pet. Both things are big responsibilities and I think some people don't realize it.

If you could live in another era in time, which would you choose? I would totally live in the 1550's if I was of royal blood. I could see myself living during that time there was so much simple beauty!

What is the farthest you've ever been from home? The farthest I have been from home is South America.
What was your favorite board game growing up? Monopoly and it still is.

If you could go back to high school for one day, knowing what you know now, would you? Be truthful to my friends, honesty may not be popular but it's prized above all.
