I’m sure I’ve said it before, but I’m saying it now anyway – I love champagne. It’s one of my favorite beverages. I can drink champagne any time of the day, any day of the week, for any special or non-special occasion. It’s a very versatile beverage. You can drink it straight, mixed with juice, in cocktails or even frozen in a slushie. What’s not to love?

My friend Suzanne Vince, awarded me with the Sunshine Award, for no apparent reason. While I am honored to receive this prestigious award, Suzanne is the one who deserves the award most. You see, Suzanne is able to find the silver lining even under the toughest circumstances. You can read about Suzanne’s brave decision regarding breast cancer and the choices a woman must make when faced with the possibility of already having or probably contracting this horrible disease here: http://suzannevince.com/2013/06/russian-roulette-or-mastectomy-my-personal-journey/

Sunshine AwardThe Sunshine Award comes with a set of written rules and is best enjoyed when sharing with others. If you choose to play along, and I encourage you to do so, the rules of the Sunshine Award are:

Include the award’s logo (and rules) in a post on your blog. Simply cut and paste the photo to the right into your own blog post.

Link to the person who nominated you.

Answer the 10 questions below with your answers instead of mine.

Pass the award on to a bunch of “Sunshine Inspiring” bloggers. The rules say 10 people, but choose however many you’d like.

Here are the questions:

Favorite Color:  Red

Favorite Animal:  I guess I’d have to ask domestic or wild. Domestic would be dog, in particular puppies. Wild would be, probably monkeys.

I leave you with this little bit of sunshine courtesy of YouTube. Yes, I’ve finally figured out how to post videos to my blog. Old dog, new trick. It takes a while. (P.S. I now have a YouTube channel. Check me out if you’re so inclined. But, I’m still learning how to create videos, so don’t expect much right away. http://www.youtube.com/user/JansenSchmidt)

Word of the Day:  Appui    (yes we’re back to the A’s)

Fun fact about me: I can wink both eyes at the same time. This trick just sort of came naturally to me. (Tee hee)

Well it’s the middle of the month and time for my February edition of What Haven’t I? Congratulations to January’s winner, Jennette Powell. Question mark

This year I decided to show my readers a little bit more about who Jansen Schmidt really is. We kicked the year off in January where you learned about some of my show business experiences. CupidThis month, in honor of Cupid, I’m going to let you ponder my wicked ways. I look forward to your quesses and I must confess to being very curious as to just how wicked you believe I am. Yes, I will be awarding prizes again this month. You don’t have to know a single thing about me to play. All you have to do is record your guesses in the comments section below.

Remember, three of the answers are things that I have actually done. Only one is something I have not done. Unless there’s a trick question. I’m nutty that way. And, you can’t win if you don’t play. Have fun and good luck!

My responses will be posted on February 21st. The person with the most correct guesses will win a prize (if they check back and acknowledge that they have won by leaving another comment) AND the first person who responds back, regardless of how many responses they got right, will also receive a prize if they leave a second comment.

So without further ado, let the guessing begin:

lace panties#1 – What haven’t I slept in:  a) the nude; b) boxer shorts; c) my underwear; or d) silk pajamas.

#2 – What undergarment haven’t I worn: a) spanx; b) garter belt; c) merry widow; or d) g-string.

#3 – What person haven’t I kissed: a) a cowboy; b) a helicopter pilot; c) a barber; or d) a car salesman.

#4 – What alcohol haven’t I tasted: a) Jagermeister; b) Kaluha; c) Tuaca; or d) Grand Marnier.

#5 – Where haven’t I had a sexual encounter: a) in a car; b) in the shower; c) outside; or d) in a hot tub.

Word of the Day:  Quintal

Fun fact about me: In sixth grade I was the tallest kid in my class. (Unfortunately I’m still the same height today.)
