Liebster Award! + I'm back!

Happy Tuesday!
Confession: it took me way to long to figure out what day it was today!
I guess that's what vacation does to ya!
I just got back from my (a little hectic) 2 week Disney/Cruise vacay  and I still refuse to believe that I am sitting at my desk at work right now.
I would give anything right now to be either in the happiest place on earth or the beautiful Bahamian beaches but alas I have to face the reality that vacation does not last forever and that I start Nursing school in T minus 2 weeks and that my to-do list of things I need to get done before then is longer than my right arm. [Insert mini panic attack here].

I'll have more about that and recap posts very soon, but in the meantime...

I am so very happy to announce that the lovely Shae from Confessions of a Post-Grad Coffee Addict has nominated me for the Liebster Award! Thanks so much Shae!

  2. I must always drink out of a straw. 
  3. I am currently listening to old Disney songs while writing this :) 

Shae's Questions: 

1. What's your  favorite ice cream flavor?
 Good ol' cookie dough for the win!

2. What is your favorite vacation destination?
You probably guessed it, Disney! Or anywhere with a relaxing beach and beautiful view.

3. If you could do anything (career wise), what would you do?
I would love to explore many of the different fields of nursing. The variety of areas the nursing career has is one of the main aspects that attracted me to pursing it.. My dream is to also include blogging in there as well ;)

4. Biggest fear?
Lizards. I cannot even describe my thoughts on those creepy, crawly things.

5. What song best describes your life at the moment?
Rather Be by Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne. I just love the vibe of this song right now! And it's very accurate as well ;)

6. Coffee or tea?
Oh that's so hard! I love both, but I'd have to go with coffee because a day without coffee is abnormal for me.

7. What's one thing you could not live without?
Aside from the obvious, and most important, family, friends, pets, etc. I could not live without my bed!

8. Favorite holiday?
Christmas. It is a holiday the lasts a whole month long (that happens to include my birthday!) and it is always such a happy time of the year.

9. What exotic animal would you want as a pet?
A whale, hands down. I have this weird obsession with whales and would be the first person in line to adopt one the day they somehow become acceptable to own as household pets.

10. Why you started blogging and meaning of your blog name?
I started blogging after spending a lot of time reading other peoples' blogs and just being fascinated by the blogging world itself. I wanted to start my own blog as a creative outlet (since my major is mainly science) and also as a way to document my life through college and, hopefully, beyond.

The meaning of The Brown Eyed Sunshine?
The sun, more specifically sunshine, is one of the things I am so grateful for everyday. There is just something so positive and uplifting when you look outside or out a window and see the sun shining down, lighting up the day. Florida is also the Sunshine State (though it fails to represent its name 50% of the time) so I figured it was a great place to start. And you probably guessed it, I have brown eyes. Brown Eyed... sunshine. It rhymed enough in my opinion  (I was never very good at poetry) and the rest is history!

11. Favorite season?
Since Florida only has two seasons, scorching hot and less hot, this question is a little hard to answer lol! I'd love to live in a place that experienced all four seasons independently so I could actually know what a 'Fall' and 'Spring" and 'Winter" too for that matter feel like.

I Nominate: 

Aly @ Love, Alysha
