Sunshine Blogger Award, Round 2

Hey y’all!  Alyssa at Here is Love tagged me for the Sunshine Blogger Award (thank you, Alyssa!), so here we go again! ;)  To see my last Sunshine Blogger Award, click here.


1. Even or odd numbers?

I don’t know.  My volleyball jersey number is 25, so let’s go with odd.  Oh, but if it has to do with math, than even numbers are my friends. ;)

2. How many siblings do you have?

Six.  I have 2 older brothers, 2 younger brothers, and 2 younger sisters.

3. Do you prefer listening to small music/singing groups (i.e. trios, quartets, etc.) or larger (i.e. choirs)?

Small groups!  Creating sacred instrumental small groups is my favorite form of music composition.  I love putting different instruments together and hearing their unique styles and how they complement the other sounds in their own unique ways.  One of my favorite small group ensembles to arrange music for is piano, flute, and erhu.  I will *eventually* find some way to record the trio and put it on my YouTube channel so y’all can hear how cool it sounds. ;)

4. Hot or warm or cold weather?

Not hot weather; we get enough of that.  If “warm” means in the 70s, I’ll go with that.  Otherwise, I’m a cold-weather person all the way!  I love the fall and winter months and layering clothing and all that.  However, “cold” down south has a very different meaning than “cold” up north… I don’t like freezing to death, just for the record!

5. Humidity or dry heat?

Neither, please!  Did you forget already?  I’m a cold-weather lover… ;)

6. Caramel or mocha?

Neither of these, either!  I’m not a coffee person in any way, shape, or form, and I hate caramel.  The beverages I drink are condensed to the following: water, chocolate milk (very rarely), orange juice, hot cocoa, punch (the way my family makes it).  I recently ordered a Dr. Pepper at a restaurant because I had to purchase a drink in order to get a special deal.  Blech.  It used to be my favorite, but I’d take water any day over that, now.

7. Would you rather tour Italy or Switzerland?

I’ve never been out of the country and I know very little about either country, so I don’t know which would be better.  I hear Switzerland is supposed to be beautiful, though, right?  So let’s go with Switzerland.

8. Sunshine or rain?

Hmmm, I kind of love rain!  Except then I get nothing done because I feel so dreary. :P  But rainy days are so peaceful.

9. What is your favorite interior design style?

I love the farmhouse look!

10. Flowers or chocolate?

Anyone would melt my heart by buying me either!  I love chocolate.  But it is much rarer for me to receive flowers than chocolate.  So flowers.  I buy myself chocolate, anyway.  It’s not like I’d just go out and buy myself flowers. ;)

11. Flying or driving?

My dad and I discussed this the other night.  If I want to go to Oregon (which I want to, someday ;), there’s no way I’m going to stay in the car for 3 days straight.  It’d be cheaper and quicker to fly, anyway.  If I’m going by myself, I’d definitely fly.  If it’s a closer destination, and it’s our family going, we’d drive.  I love traveling, though, so I’d be thrilled to do either. :) 

12. Has Jesus brought Sunshine to your soul?
Yes, He has!!  Praise the Lord!

Because I already did the Sunshine Blogger Award fairly recently, and I’m pretty sure most of my nominees haven’t even done their post yet, I’m not going to tag anyone.  However, here are couple questions for y’all to answer in the comments below, so I can get to know you a little better!

Do you play any instruments?
What is one random fun-fact about yourself?
How did you first find out about my blog?
What is your favorite flower?
What is one thing you are looking forward to this fall?

    1. Thanks for tagging me! ;) Oh wait where did I miss that you played violin?? xD I'd love to play violin but I'm happy with my viola for now. :) I know a couple guitar chords as well.
      That's so neat you and Laura both found my blog through comments I left on the Bontrager blogs! I didn't expect that. How neat. :)
