Sunshine Award

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to do a quick fun post because I was nominated for this sweet award by a very dear blogger friend of mine, Deja.  I adore her creativity, friendliness, and encouragement. :-) She's quite wonderful, so if you have a moment to pay her a visit, please do!

The Rules For This Award 
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Post the logo of the award on your blog.
3. Share 7 facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 5 or more blogs that inspire you.

I don't usually talk much about myself, as I tend to be a rather private person- so I will try to make this incredibly fascinating! ;-)

Let's get started, ok?

1.  About 15 years ago I had a dental procedure that went terribly wrong.  I am now permanently numb from the lower left quadrant of my mouth and chin- this includes my lip, teeth, and gums.
I am NUMB, but obviously everything still works fine.

2. One of my favorite songs of all time is "Little L" by Jamiroquai.   Many songs have tried to oust it from my top 10, but failed.  It never gets old to me.  Never.  Many speakers have been blown in my house and car because of this song. :-)

3. I know that I have had too much to drink when I can no longer recite Shakepeare's
 Sonnet #144 from memory.  Fact.

Hey no one said this was a family show!  Cheers y'all!! Ha ha!!

4.  I was nominated for an acting scholarship in college. I competed for it, didn't win.
BUT I was nominated for an acting scholarship in college!! I performed in many shows years ago, also dabbled in theatrical makeup.

I'm the middle.  This show was called "On the Verge" by Eric Overmyer.  Google it! (I was "Fanny")

5.  Not only do I paint faces, but I also have a history of painting on canvas as well :-)

This is a close up pic of a finger painting I did of a man's torso. The entire painting is about 5 feet tall.

Very bold! I love this one! This one gets a lot questions for sure ;-) 

6.  I have a fabulous Barbie Collection. (2 dolls)
The dolls that I have are:

♥ Scottish Barbie (because of my family's heritage... I love her red hair.)
♥ And Rupaul.  I love you, Ru!  


7.  I am a somnambulist.  A WHAT?

I am a sleepwalker.

I know this because I will wake up in the morning sometimes and I will be missing an article of clothing that I will find somewhere else in the house.  Sometimes I have a vague recollection of getting out of bed and walking around my house.  Strange.  I know.  :-)


Ok, so selecting only 5 bloggers to tag for this is very difficult as there are so many of you that I would love to tag!!  Feel free to participate if not tagged and let me know so I can see your answers!

The bloggers that I will select for this award are as follows:

♥ Erin / The ANYday Blogger
♥ Kalei / Kalei Lagunero
♥ Becky/ Beckawoo
♥ Traci / Drinkcitra

(Feel free to participate or not, I realize everyone has busy lives! Also if you would like to VLOG your response, that would certainly be welcome as well!)

Have a great day, everyone!  I hope this has been somewhat entertaining! :-)
Colleen ♥
