A Sunshine Award

Thank you Meg for nominating me for the Sunshine Award. I love the idea behind this award. Nominating blogs that make us smile. What a positive award to give away! However, you are limited to only 10 nominees and I'm sure there are more than ten blogs that make you smile! Meg has created 10 questions for me to answer. And my nominees get to answer 10 new questions I've created. 
Sometimes it's difficult to keep these awards circulating. In the name of an award with such a cheery name...I am going to give it my best effort!

Meg's Ten Questions:
1. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

I've always wanted to live on the East Coast. I don't even know why since I've never really spent much time there. It just seems like a place I would like.

2. What are you most excited about this fall?

Living in California, I am most excited for fall because the weather cools off. It's the closest thing we get to seasons.

3. What is your favorite dessert? Bonus points for the recipe.

Hmm... I suppose I would choose cupcakes.
We have the best local cupcake shop, Truly Madly Sweetly.
My favorite, Boston Creme. Yum!

4. What are you going to be for Halloween this year?

I will be the official candy passer-outer. It's sorta my thing.

5. Share your favorite GIF or Meme of the moment.

I'm really loving Military Mondays hosted by Eights On The Move.
Here are the most recent posts: Military Family Planning, Mando-Fun, and 
Military Ranks.

6. Favorite article of clothing? More bonus points for a selfie wearing it!

Love my Old Navy Military Jacket.

7. What is your favorite post you've ever written?

My Take On Military Life

8. What is your guilty pleasure TV show or movie?
I'm currently hooked on How I Met Your Mother. It's a little risque but truly clever. I love clever comedy. I haven't been this in love with a sitcom since Friends.

9. Share the fourth oldest photo on your phone.
