My 2nd Sunshine Blogger Award

Hi ❤️


The Sunshine Blogger Award is given to those who are creative, positive and inspiring while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.


  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

A huge thank you to Mani from Mani’s Book Corner for this nomination! If you have yet to check out her lovely blog, you must! She’s such a nice person and her book blog is wonderful.

My Answers to Mani’s Questions:

1. What’s the biggest book you have read?

Probably THIS BOOK…which is absolutely one of the very best books I’ve ever read!

2. What was your favourite book when you were a kid?

The Baby-Sitters Club! I read every single one and LOVED them all. Team Claudia and Stacey forever 🙂 My daughter is reading the graphic novels now and she’s obsessed with them!

3. What’s the last film/TV show you watched?

iCarly! My daughter and I are working our way through the series before the reboot comes out next week! She’s already watched the whole series but is rewatching them with me. We snuggle up in my bed whenever we can fit in an episode. Love it!

4. Would you accept a job as a librarian in an haunted library?

Hard pass.

5. What would be the title of the book based on your life?

Happiness 🙂

6. If they make a movie based on your life, who would you cast as actor/actress for your role?

Not just the actress but the character: Beverly Goldberg from The Goldbergs. Hands down. I feel her in my soul.

7. Who is your absolute favourite writer?

Oh man I don’t have just one! A few that I love: Gabrielle Zevin (she wrote the VERY best book I’ve ever read!), Claire Lombardo (read THIS BOOK), and Liane Moriarty (but only sometimes…read my thoughts on my love/hate relationship with her HERE).

8. Are you keeping up with your 2021 New Year’s Resolutions? (it doesn’t have to be reading goals)

I’m proud to say that I am! Both blog related and personal 😉

9. Is there a book you keep saying “One day I will read it” but you never do?

Love in the Time of Cholora! I’ve owned it and have been wanting to read it for years! Read my thoughts on why HERE.

10. Can you name an underrated book you read and loved?

THIS BOOK. I loved it so much and am shocked it’s not more popular?

11. What’s one movie you want to be novelized?

Eh. None? I would never watch a move and then read the book….but I ALWAYS read the book and then watch the movie! And truth be told, I’m actually not a big movie fan. I’d much rather read a book or watch a tv show.

I nominate:

Anyone who would like to participate! Please tag me so I can read your answers 🙂 Mani’s questions were great so I will keep them for you to answer. Aaaaaaand I didn’t have a Sunshine Blogger logo to use so I just tossed a selfie on the top of this post instead. Basically I followed exactly none of the rules but I enjoyed answering the questions, lol…???

Holiday Happiness

A very Merry Christmas to those who celebrate! I wish you a holiday filled with love, family, and memories. Next year, the first night of Hanukkah will be December 22nd so those who celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas will be able to do so at the same time! It’s always so much more fun when it works out that way. Hanukkah was entirely way too early this year. However, it was better than the year a few years ago when it fell over Thanksgiving…that was just WAY too early.  Eating turkey while playing dreidel?  Weird.

As for me, my husband is home from work until January!!! We have some awesome things planned for the kids over the next few weeks. Nothing is better than family time. Absolutely nothing. I have been waiting for months for these few weeks to get here!

On the reading front, I finished Nine Perfect Strangers (affiliate) by Liane Moriarty yesterday morning! I have lots of thoughts about this book to share with you…blog post coming soon. I started reading The Cast (affiliate) by Amy Blumenfeld last night and I’m already loving it.  Have you read either of these books?
