Sunshine Award

Well, It happened that I got nominated for the same award twice in one week!  Which happened to be enough motivation for me to sit down and fulfill my nominations!

I was first nominated by EB, and then by S.  Which was really awesome.  Thanks guys!  (um, I mean Ya'll) ;)

The rules, apparently for the Sunshine Award, are not set in stone.  One says to share 11 facts about yourself, and then answer 11 questions.  But another skips the facts part and just does the questions.  So...sense I already have a "Fact About Me" link, I decided that I'm going to go with the rules that say to skip it.  But, you can always visit my "Random Facts About Me" link and indulge in a bunch of random facts that you probably didn't need to know! Also, you have to nominate 10-11 other blogs for the award.  So, here are the rules that I am following, laid out:

1.) You have to answer 11 questions asked by your nomination blogger
2.) You have to nominate 11 other blogs
3.) You have to set (or ask) 11 questions for your nominees to answer

So, after that very long introduction, I give to the Sunshine Award. =)

'For bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere'

*ps. These are Eb's questions.  But I'm pretty much following your rules, S, so I think it's even. =)*

Q1: How Long Have You Been Blogging:

      Well, the easy answer is since October.  That's how long I have been on this blog, (Almost) Perfectly Pink.  I have had others blogs on different sites over the years, but this is the only one that now exists.  =)

Q2: Why Did You Choose Your Blog Title:
      This one is rather funny, actually.  Those who have been with me since October know that my title changed quite a bit at first.  I think it had at least 4 or 5 names.  I have never been good at naming anything.  I have whole books (no joke) sitting on my hard drive and the poor things just have no title.  Anyway, how I finally came up with the name (Almost) Perfectly Pink is because a new clothing store came to our town called Almost Pink. And it got me thinking about how, first off, I love pink, but then also even though some peoples lives online, or even in person may seem "perfect" they never are.  It can be good, but not perfect.  =)  That is my very long answer.

Q3: What Is Your Favorite Color:

       This one is kinda self explanatory if you have laid eyes on my blog, and I mentioned it in my last answer, but pink! =)  I also like reds, violets, and light blues and greens.  =)

Q4: Do You Play An Instrument?  If So, What:

        I wish I could answer yes, but I can't.  I took piano lessons when I was younger, but that was when I was about 6 or 7.  I can play Mary Had A Little Lamb on the keyboard, and that is about it.. =(

Q5: What Color (American spelling, Eb!  ;) Haha!) Socks Are You Wearing:

        Um, white.  Besides fuzzy slipper socks, all I own is white socks.  My sister has all these crazy colored ones. =P  Haha

Q6: What Are Your Hobbies:

         Wow, a hard one!  Haha.  Um, writing and reading at the very top of the list.  Blogging.  Being outside is awesome.  Waking my dog/riding my bike down the road it one of my favorite things to do.  My sister and I visit and elderly lady down the road...She is super sweet...School....Um...Day dreaming? LOL

Q7: Write One Word, Any Word.

        Fictitious!  (Sorry, this makes this answer more than one word, but I love the word fictitious.  A book of fiction is fictitious!  I love that word! =D)

Q8: What's Your Favorite (Another British/American spelling difference!  Haha! =D) Book:
       Oh, Eb, how could you do this to me?  Oh, my, I can't even BEGIN to imagine choosing one...But as far as non-fiction, thee Bible, and a dictionary!  My dictionary is my best friend!  =D

Q9: How Many Books Do You Own:

       Oh, yikes...Me personally, like I bought them, or my family as a whole?  A room full, I suppose!

Q10: What Is Your Favorite Film:

      Yes, an easy one!  Haha   Beauty and the Beast =D

Q11: How Many Elephants Are Ther Underground:

      I think I can safely assume zero.  Living, at least.  Now, if your talking buried, that's completely different! Haha

Whew!  I did it!  Haha =D  Fun questions, Eb!  Now, onto the nominations:

 (I don't know if you can do this, but I'm re-nominating S. and Eb. I figured that I was nominated twice, so you could be too!  Haha.  Of course, you don't have to do the whole question/answer/nominate thing again.)

(Two Different Julias! Haha)
