Sunshine On A Cloudy Day | Anchors Aweigh


Sunshine On A Cloudy Day

Happy Friday!! This week was so eventful for both Parker and me in our jobs, so we are more than ready for a couple of days off. On this lovely Friday, I thought I would answer some questions that sweet Rebecca from Caravan Sonnet asked me when she nominated me for the Sunshine award. There are a lot of little "awards" that float around Blogland, but I think the Sunshine Award might be my favorite. This is an award given to a blogger who brings sunshine to the world. How cute is that?! She came up with some really fun questions that I am excited to answer.

Here we gooooo!

1. What is a dream that you hope will come true in your life?
Being a mother. I feel like God created me to be a wife and a mother, and I pray I get the opportunity to be both. We aren't at a point in our lives where it makes sense to have babies right this minute, but we aren't too far away from that time either. I am excited to see what God has planned.

2. Do you have a nickname? If so, what is the story behind it?
Little girl Chrissy. My twin sister and Nana call me this sometimes. I interned for Enterprise Rent A Car one summer, and a woman got upset because I gave her a car that she didn't want. She went in to complain to my manager, and she yelled across the room "Little girl Chrissy over there tried to give me a small car!". My boss and coworkers were all holding back laughter, and it became a joke for a few of my family members. 

3. If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to?
Hmmm, that's tough! Maybe Caroline or Elizabeth? Honestly, I really love the name my parents gave me!

4. What is the strangest thing you believed when you were a child?
I was convinced that I had cancer as a child. Every time my hair fell out, I thought I had cancer. I went to have a serious talk with my mom one day to break the news of my self-diagnosed illness, and she informed me that chemotherapy is what makes your hair fall out, not the disease itself. She did a good job of holding back her laughter in spite of her hypochondriac 8 year old.

5. What is the most recent compliment you have received and treasured? Why?
That's really hard! We all love getting compliments, but I think for me, compliments mean more coming from certain people. I love it when Parker tells me I am supportive and his rock through the difficulties of flight school, and I love it when my parents tell me they are proud of me.

6. What do you think about more than anything else? 
Babies... or what I am going to cook for dinner.

7. Where is your favorite place to go in your home town?
Easy, my grandparents' house!

8. What is your favorite word?
Love. I know this makes me a total cheese ball, but I love telling people I love them, and I love hearing it from the people that love me. Second favorite word: Jenny.

9. Who is your hero and why?
My parents- they emulate true selflessness every day, and there isn't one thing they wouldn't do for my sisters and me. 

 10. What has been the most terrifying moment in your life and why?
I don't think it has happened yet. Depressing, moving right along...

11. What has been your best/favorite vacation and why?
Greece! Experiencing another culture and country as beautiful as Greece was once in a lifetime. 

And my nominees are (choosing only 11 was hard!)...

Here are your questions! Can't wait to read your answers!

1. If you could trade places with one person for a day, who would it be and why?
2. What is your all-time favorite TV show? *Bonus points if you say Friends ;)
3. What is one talent you are thankful for?
4. We all know I am obsessed with babies. What are your favorite baby names?
5. What is your favorite holiday of the year?
6. What advice would you give the 12 year old version of yourself? For example, I would tell myself to put down the clunky doc martins and wear a shoe actually made for a girl, but I digress.
7. Name three things you can't live without.
8. If you could relive any moment of your life, what would it be and why?
9. If you only had $20 to spend at Target, to which section would you go?
10. What is one thing most people do not know about you?
11. What is one fashion trend you wish would come back in style. For example, overalls. Those babies were so comfortable!
