Here Comes The Sun(shine Award)

by Sarah on October 9, 2013 · 10 comments

Does anyone else automatically think of pre-debacle [slash] downward spiral Lindsay Lohan and the fabulous remake of The Parent Trap when you hear this post’s titular song?

My dear friend Brittany nominated me for a Sunshine Award, and of course, y’all know I relish any excuse to talk about myself. [Aren’t all bloggers narcissists..just a little bit?]NewImage1

There are some rules and whatnot, but I don’t do well following recipes rules. I will, however, do my best to answer the questions Brittany asked me. :)


 1.What is your favorite thing about fall?

Persimmons?IMG_4849 (1024x683)

School supplies?

(Yes, I would like a bouquet of sharpened pencils. Thank you.)IMG_5164 (683x1024)

Hey, I wrote a post on this…with a killer Baked Bean Chili recipe. :)IMG_2456 (1024x682)

2. What is your favorite animal?

Baby goats.IMG_4345 (1024x683)

Miniature goats count as well.IMG_5658 (1024x682)

3. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I think the first job I remember wanting to have was a teacher, but in middle school I became obsessed with being a film director–ideally the first female winner of a Best Director Oscar. In my heart of hearts, I STILL want to be a Broadway star.

(I obviously perfected my teacher look and ability to stare down paparazzi at a very young age.)IMG_4987 (681x1024)

4. Sweet or Savory?

Both. Preferably at the same time.IMG_5325 (1024x694)

Eggs and squash and greens and apricot ginger cashew cream and cranberry almond granola…IMG_5339 (1024x683)

Sugar and spice and EVERYTHING nice.

[Which I guess means salt and butter?]

5. Favorite kind of music?

Boys with guitars (or the occasional piano, banjo, or fiddle); pretty much any of the ‘new country‘ played on The Highway via Sirius XM; Motown and beach music from the 60s; bubblegum pop between the years of 1999 and 2007; and anything from a musical by Rodgers & Hammerstein.StateFairCD

6. Who is one person past or present that you would like to meet?

Adam Richman.adam richman

Because I’m really about ready to throw a giant party in my honor plan a wedding.

 (Was I supposed to say something more insightful there?)

7. Favorite TV show?

I am not ashamed to say I love television, and that—much like with movies–I would have to begin to categorize this question.

For example, my favorite reality TV show that holds some legitimacy is Top Chef, as opposed to my favorite reality TV show that I should be embarrassed to love (but am not) is The Bachelor(ette).


Favorite mainstream drama? Nashville. Favorite cable drama? White Collar.

Favorite tween-oriented comedy I adore? Hart of Dixie.

Favorite sitcoms? Modern Family and The Mindy Project.

Show I actually watch the most? House Hunters.

etc. etc.

8. Favorite color?


My phone is green, my (current) clutch is green, my school tote  is green, the lunchbag I keep my camera in is green…IMG_5193 (1024x683)

…at one point in high school my best friend, Liz, told me she was putting a ban on me buying any more green clothing because it was the only color I wore.

9. What is your dream vacation?


10. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I don’t think I’ve been there yet.

[But Austin, Texas came pretty darn close…]
