sunshine award

happy sunday friends!!! today i feel extreamly loved...

why? well, amanda over at marry mint decided to nominate lil ole me for the sunshine award. i have been nominated for the liebster award like three different times, but never the other awards floating around blogland. and it's truly flattering that either someone actually reads what you say or that they just want to ask you a bunch of questions and get your response. either way, i love it.

i'm relatively sure that i stole this pic from amanda, but c'mon it's so pretty!

rules of the sunshine award
-post 11 random facts about yourself.
-answer 11 questions for the blogger who nominated you.

my questions from Amanda...
1 | What is the story behind your blog's name?
i love dandelions and daisys (that would be a great re-brand name!). one day, me and the lil man were taking a walk in the yard. he picked up a dandelion seed flower and blew on it. i always loved the quote "when looking at a field of dandelions, you can either see a field full of weeds or a field full of wishes" and everything just clicked in that moment.

3 | What is your most embarrassing story?
at our wedding, my husband decided to get a little too drunk, so when i wanted to go home, i couldn't find him. i was also drunk and feeling kinda sick, so i went outside and laid down on the cold sidewalk- in my wedding dress. my friend took a picture. needless to say, i finally found my husband, but my dress was so dirty, and is still dirty almost 5 years later (i never got it cleaned or preserved- it's in a bag in my closet).
