We think that a good way to end this year is answering the questions of our nominations to the Liebster awards by the loveliest Mariko at Gamerwife and the Sunshine blogger by the sweetest Jane from Always With Yoo, to give you all readers & fellow bloggers a huge and warm thank you!
These type of blogger awards usually involve answering a series of questions (or explain random facts of your life) and then proposing new questions to ask to some of your favorite blogs.
As a new comers to the blog world the rules of these type of awards leave us very confused, so we will steal the idea from the wise ones that have tagged us for the awards, and based on the rules we have seen and read, we are going to create new ones. In addition this decision will create more confusion in the future for other bloggers; added fun! :)
Our new rules: We are going to explain 5 random facts about us for the Sunshine blogger and then we will be answering 5 questions (3 for the Liebster and 2 for the Sunshine). After that, we will end it tagging 5 of our favorite bloggers (for both awards!) asking them 5 of our own questions (be aware! ;P).
01 – She: As a kid I had a huge obsession with the Lion King and knew all the dialogues and songs by heart in English!, which is extremely weird here as Disney movies were doubled to Spanish (even songs!). Every single day for a year or two the movie was playing non-stop in background while I did my school homework or played or anything. I guess my mom ended not being such a big fan as myself. Hakuna Matata to all of you!
02 – He: I used to be scared of cats it’s not only the name of an awesome blog but a shocking fact about me. My family has always been more into dogs so trying to understand cats, after dog behavior, induced me into thinking they were mean and dangerous (lol). Everything changed one day when, going to work, a little kitty gently approached me and caressed my hand. One year later Juno made her great entrance into our lives and another crazy cat dude was born ;)
03 – She: I have a love relationship with boxes. I like to tidy things inside boxes and admire a lot the people who is able to have all the things perfectly stored and classified. When I see in a blog or Pinterest some tidying tip with boxes I run to Dani with excitement to show him what we should copy for our home :)
04 – He: I became interested in photography thanks to the cinema. As a little boy I used to shoot homemade video movies with my brother and cousins (zombie-terror movies and stuff like that). While growing up, I started noticing that my parents’ video camera didn’t shoot images like the ones in the movies (I had good-looking actors but not blurred backgrounds!), so I bought my first DSLR (my beloved Canon 400D) and started learning about photography. Damaris has an awesome instinctive knowledge about pretty things, so she quickly fall into photography as well and we have been learning and learning more about it since then.
05 – The cat: Although Juno has a large amount of cat toys (several mice, balls, feathered sticks…you know what type!) her favorite “toy” in the whole world is a simple plastic straw. Every time she hears the blending machine while we are preparing a smoothie or fruit juice, she runs to our side and demands, meowing very loud, her own straw.
01 – Pirates or Ninjas? (by her): Just by looking at this picture it is obvious I would make an awesome pirate (in fact Guybrush is my middle name ;P) However the story after the wooden floor of the Nijo Castle (at Kyoto) would make me re-consider it. How awesome it would be to enter wearing all black (à la “Audrey Hepburn Funny Face” style) in the back doors of the castle trying to avoid the nightingale floor tramp!
02 – Where is your happy place? (by him): The answer to this one is easy: Since we started dating we have always been day-dreaming about a journey to Japan (living there for a long period of time is also in our dreams!), so being with my loved-pretty-awesome girl in the most amazing country in the world after being married made it for me!
03 – What did you eat for lunch today? (by her): This question is so funny because that’s exactly what my mom asks me every day (no matter what) in our daily phone call :) Sometimes it is the only thing she cares about to know, moms! :) Today we had a delish homemade pizza with cheese and Spanish ham (Iberico!). Nowadays Dani has a huge obsession with Italian food, and he has started with the most famous dish.
04 – If you were a superhero, what would your powers be? (by him): I think I would be a sort of male version of the Catwoman, the “Crazy-cat man”, with the power of being adorable (xD) and defeat the bad guys with my hard mustache.
05 – How do you unwind from a stressful day? (by the cat): Juno has obviously a very relaxed life (lucky gal!), she only gets stressed when there is lot of new people at home. On those days the same routine applies, she usually calms herself staying behind the curtains. When she is calmed she moves towards the sofa and stays under it for a while, then after a few minutes she climbs to the top of the back of the sofa and voilà! unstressed cat :)
We are going to tag five of our favorite bloggers to keep the awards rolling on: Fiona from Burntfeather, Louise from 00:23am, Mei from Ice Pandora, Deniz from Photostorming and Yasmine from Sugar&Dinosaurs. You girls rock! :)
And our questions for the charming ladies are:
01 – Which is your latest guilty pleasure?
02 – Do you have any special piece of clothing or complement? Which one and why?
03 – Which were your three favorite toys when you were a little girl?
04 – Which type of apocalypse would you have more probabilities to survive: zombie or alien invasion?
05 – How do you see yourself in 5 years?
Looking forward to see your surprising answers!
And as a bonus track our Christmas best wishes picture Making of! Juno was definitely not in her most collaborative mood :P
