Sunshine Blogger Award

Becca, of Married Cat Lady fame, has very kindly nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award! This is a particularly lovely award to receive, as it is so nice to know that you can make someone smile with your blog 🙂 Becca’s blog is a great mix of honesty and hilarity, and you find yourself laughing a little too loudly at The Lawful Brothel and The Deathly Vinos! Before continuing on, I will give you a few moments to make your way through Becca’s blog!……… Now that you are back, let’s get to it!

Sunshine Blogger Award

Rules for the Sunshine Blogger Award: 

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated them and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated them.
  3. Nominate 11 other blogs and give them 11 new questions to answer.
  4. Notify your nominees and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post/ on your blog!

Onto my questions now!

What is your favourite* thing about blogging?
Being able to connect with people and be a part of a larger community! I love “meeting” new people and being able to follow along with whatever journey they want to share with us. Blogging is pretty global and I’ve connected with people halfway across the world that I otherwise wouldn’t have ever met.

How did you come up with the name of your blog?
I have three degrees in history and still consider myself a historian by trade. And I just like to get out and do things! Henceforth, An Historian About Town was born!

Where do you write your blog posts?
Either at our dining room table, or on a couch in our three season room or living room! If I’m travelling, I usually get a whole whack of writing down in airports and on planes.

Which Hogwarts house would you be sorted into? (Here’s a link, if you need it.)
No link needed, Ravenclaw to the end! (I was that person spending half an hour at the tiny rack of Ravenclaw merchandise at the HP Studio Tour.)

Are you a cat person or a dog person? (Or neither?!)
DOGS. DOGSDOGSDOGS. (Westies or Huskies, preferably, but really any dog in the world.)

Backstreet Boys or *Nysnc?
*Nsync, without a doubt. I think once you compare Justin Timberlake and Nick Carter, the choice is pretty obvious. Also, No Strings Attached and Celebrity are two of the greatest albums of all time, sooooo there’s that, too.

What is your favorite TV show to binge watch?
Hmmmm, Parks and Rec or Outlander. Two very different shows but both can keep me entertained for hours!

Describe yourself in 3 words.
Small, tenacious, ridiculous.

What is the last thing you ate?
Rhubarb crisp. And it was delicious.

Who would you pick to be your celebrity BFF?
Ooooo, this is a difficult question. Anna Kendrick is still pretty high up on the list- she’s hilarious, she’s not going to make me feel short because we are both 5’2″, and she can sing pretty much anything!

My brother, my nephew, and Loki and Thor being crazy!

    Congratulations on your Sunshine Award! How awesome AND you deserve it! 🙂 Your answers are well thought out and I liked learning more about you. Ravenclaws are great in my (not so) humble opinion. Also, your celebrity BFF is a great choice! Anna would be a hoot. Also, your pictures enhanced the post.

    I am incredibly humbled to be nominated. I’m wondering if you wouldn’t mind if I answered here? Because I feel if I keep up with the nominations it will break my daily posting flow. But I promise to go in-depth, even if I lack all the cool pictures. Thank you for the nomination!! ❤

    1.) My favorite boy band singalong track…hmm…this is a good question! Either Pop or Bye Bye Bye by *NSYNC if I'm being truthful.

    2.) I feel like a terrible person if I say I have a single fave blog. But if I must, my dearest friend M (https://babieslifefamilygoodfood.wordpress.com/) is in my top.

    3.) Ice cream counts as food, yeah? Pasta if ice cream doesn't meet with your approval!

    4.) Ooooh, this is fantastic! I have a thing for the old Orbit commercials (specifically the Cootie Queen one). But if they're dorky and cheesy I more than likely find them hysterical.

    5.) ALL THE DANCE MOVES! I took dance classes for roughly ten years of my life and I heart dancing. I like anything with a twist, jump, or a hop in it. 😉 hahaha

    6.) Hmmm…I truly like Halloween because of the weather and because everyone dresses up. But I truly like the ambiance of Christmas.

    7.) I am a shoe hoarder. But I love my Chuck Taylor's. Any heels I have a thing for. I also have these adorable black ballet flats that cross up my ankles that are awesome. It's a bit of a problem. Between books and shoes, I'm a bit of a hoarder 🙂

    8.) My almost five year old cousin. He's the best creature on the face of this planet.

    9.) I have waaaaaaaaaaay too many faves to choose. Part of being apart of multiple fandoms, I am afraid. 🙂 But, almost any Sherlock or Harry Potter ones are right up my alley!

    10.) Teen movie? Yikes. My first response is Harry Potter, but that implies as a young adult I shouldn't be watching it still, sooooo. I'm still going with the HP series.

    11.) Let's see if I can think back all that way. I'm not sure if this counts, but I quite liked the Disney Channel stars making the Mickey Mouse logo and saying "You're watching Disney" and the swoosh of their colored wands.

          Did Halloween even happen if you haven’t watched Hocus Pocus?? I’m not a huge Halloween fan but Hocus Pocus is a MUST!

            Nope! I am 100% certain that it never happens unless Hocus Pocus has been watched! 😁

    6. Favourite holiday? Christmas!!

      The house hippos are just about the greatest commercial in existence! I watch it probably once a week- no matter what the question is!!

          I’m a lot sad that’s not true- every time I see a baby hippo, I’m waiting for a zookeeper to whisper “She’s actually full grown” to me
