Kreativ Blogger Award

I received an award on Friday from Carissa Taylor.  Thank you so much Carissa.  I am honored and humbled by your support.  Also, I am super jealous of Carissa because she currently lives in one of my dream cities; Sydney, Australia.

7 Nominations:
10 Questions: 
1. What is your favorite song? I don’t like what is your favorite questions if I am required to pick only one.  My brain doesn’t work like that. I could pick one in every genre or one by the top 50 of my favorite artist.  But, to pick one is just unfair.  
-Dangerously in Love 2 – Beyonce
-When Will I See you Smile Again – Bell Biv DeVoe
-Precious Things – Tori Amos
-Walk Like a Man – Tim McGraw
-Empire State of Mind – Jay Z
 2. What is your favorite dessert? Anything w/Chocolate and Peanut Butter
3. What ticks you off? Inconsistency and Negativity
4. What do you do when you’re upset? I get really quiet and then think about it for a day.  Then I bring it up to that person with clear facts and examples to show them how and why they upset me.  
5. Which is/was your favorite pet? My dog Peyton.  He was named after Peyton Manning.  He is a toy rat terrier.  The cutes thing with allergies which I think is hilarious.  He actually has to take 1/2 a Benadryl every day.  He has been living with my two aunts since I moved to China.
6. Which do you prefer, black or white? Black is beautiful
7.What is your biggest fear? Snakes and failing to live the life I am supposed to live
8. What is your attitude mostly? Most of the time I have a positive upbeat attitude.
9.What is perfection? Sleeping in until noon and still having 12 hours of sun light left. Also, a good book and a hot bath
10. What is your guilty pleasure? Reality TV; no matter if it is a competition or just a camera following drunk people around.  I watch it all. 
10 Random Facts
  1. I love Apple products and currently have my iPhone, iPad 3, Mac Air and Mac Book Pro sitting on my desk all on.

  3. I try and quit drinking coffee every month, it only last for a week.
  4. I know over 100 words in mandarin and my favorite word is dui.  It means yes or correct. 
  5. I saw Matt Damon in a play in London a few years ago and have been a huge fan every since.  I sat in the front row and he spent most of the play in his boxer shorts.  He really is that cute in person.
  6. I meet Michael Jordan once at a celebrity golf tournament.  The person who introduced us told him I was in law school.  He said, “Oh yeah, you go to George Washington University.”  I said, “Yep.”  – I actually went to Georgetown.  
  7. If your name is short for something, I prefer to call you by your full name.  Mike – Michael, Jackie – Jacqueline, Lynn – Lynnette, Alex – Alexander
  8. I love sparkling water and drink it at most every meal.
  9. There are shows on TV here in China that I would never have watched in America, but now I just love them.  Sons of Guns and Deadliest Catch are two of my favorite.
  10. I pay a driver once a week to go to town and pick me up a pepperoni pizza from Papa Johns.  After Chinese food all week, it is so good.

  1. Wow! Thank you Sydney! Blush, giggle, grin… thank you! You deserve this award too! And wow what fun stuff about you, Matt Damon, Michael Jordan, I am jealous!

    1. I love the Jordan story. It still makes me giggle. I really enjoy your blog and happy to tell everyone about your greatness. Thank you for your support as well.

  2. Hey there Sydney, I love that you’re named after your dream town – Sydney is indeed a beautiful place, and I hope you make it there oneday. Also, I love that you have a toy rat terrier on Benadryl! I have a fox-terrier chihuahua who is 16 yo and currently on medication for dementia 🙂 Thanks so much for the follow – I’m glad to be brought to your blog 🙂

    1. Thanks Alarna. I was actually named after my mom’s favorite writer. She loves Sidney Sheldon,but thought my spelling was more for a girl. 16 years old. Peyton is just 5. The things we do for our pets.

  3. Congrats on the blog award! Your ten random facts and the answers to your questions are awesome. You quit coffee every month ~ that is totally something I can relate to. Except coffee makes me sick so I really do need to quit it.

    So, that play with Matt Damon… could you see up his boxers? Cause that’s where I would’ve been looking the entire play!

    Your Peyton sounds like my Jack Russell. She’s got allergies too, but is such a sweetheart. I bet Peyton would have fun hanging out with Zora. 😉

    Thanks so much for passing the award to me. Do I have to answer those questions and give ten random facts now? Yikes.

  4. Oh wow, thanks very much! I’m glad you enjoy reading my blog, and I love reading yours too.

    Ha, I do the same thing with T.V. in Spain that you do in China (yay reality T.V.!) And it’s so reassuring to know that Mr. Damon looks just as good in person. 🙂

    Thanks again, that was a really nice surprise!

    1. Your welcome Jessica. Well deserved. We need to share other expat tricks someday. What ever we can do to stay sane. Living in a foreign country can be crazy sometimes. haha.
