30 Hours of Travels + Sunshine on a Rainy Day

Aloha Friday! Between my not-as-aloha Wednesday and Thursday, I unfortunately had to leave Timmy and Hawaii :(
And I endured 30 hours of traveling... which included 4 flights and a day trip to Chicago for work purposes. That makes for a VERY exhausted me.

The weather in Chicago was gloomy while I was there but I still loved being in my soon-to-be new city of residence. It was the peak during my travels. I think it's going to be a great adventure. 

No worries about rainy weather in this space, though, because I've got sunshine on my blog today:) I'm way overdue in posting my Sunshine Award questionnaire. I'd seen it around Blogland recently so I was excited to have been nominated for one by the lovely Rachel from The Professional Army Life! I think these awards are a fun blog activity so I was excited to participate :)

Rachel's Questions:

1. What did you have for lunch today?
A yummy grilled chicken pita. My dinner of a pepperoni pretzel and sour gummy worms were also yummy.. 
2. Since we're on the subject of food, what's your favorite meal?
White rice, red beans, chicken cutlets & avocado. I'm a simple gal.

3. Name the most unusual item in your purse right now.
I currently have a massive amount of things in my bag, the most unusual of which are probably stamps from a Post Office errand run a few weeks ago, or toothpaste and a toothbrush used to brush my teeth this morning. 

4. Tell me something you are looking forward to the most in the next week.

Catching up with family and friends!

5. How about the next couple months?
Moving to Chicago, getting sworn in, {fingers crossed} Vegas with my loves & starting my big girl job!

6. Where did you go on your last vacation?
Does my recent extended stay in Hawaii count? ;)

7. What are your favorite pair of shoes? Can you share a picture too?
I have loved these wedges for going out:
8. What do you love the most about Fall? If not, what do you dislike?
I love Fall! I love the cooler weather ... sweaters, scarves, boots, Halloween, of course Timmy's and my dad's birthdays, and that it's almost Christmastime (my favorite time of year)!

9. Who is your celebrity doppelganger?

I've been called each of the following: Tapanga from Boy Meets World, Selena Gomez & Selena, the late Latina singer.

10. If you found a genie in a bottle, what would be your three wishes?
Well these would have to be "fake" wishes because if I tell my wishes, they won't come true right?;) 1) World peace 2) Lifelong health and happiness for myself and my loved ones 3) That eating chocolate would actually burn calories :)

...And now, excuse me while I relax sleep the day away.
