Happy 101!

Ok, ladies. First of all, I want to apologize that this has taken 67 forevers. I am so flattered, and honored, and blessed that you all have shared this award with me, and that was like two weeks ago, and I'm just now getting my post up. Holidays, tax season, life, you know how it is. But, here we go!

I received the Happy 101 from TWO mahvelous ladies -


Arizona Momma from Our Daze in the Desert and Tara from The Unkept Cook

These things always come with rules. I'm to list 10 things that make me happy, then share this award with 10 others. 
You know what I like about these? When you list things like Ten Things That Make Me Happy, it makes it nice to know right where that is. You know how it is when you're having one of THOSE days? The ones where you need reminded why you bother? A list like this is fabulous. 

  1. Doing something with the kids with no fighting.
  2. Hanging out with my hubs.
  3. Good food with good friends.
  4. Puppy snuggles
  5. Yelling at sports 
  6. A great book, hot bath and glass of wine
  7. Serious cuddle time with the crew
  8. Smokin' hot shoes and a pair of jeans that make my butt look great
  9. Having a houseful of people - family and friends, for no reason but we want to
  10. Feeling loved and appreciated.
Now I have to share this award with 10 other bloggers!

This is the part that I hate. Here's why:
You guys ROCK.
Seriously. You are my mental break in the day. You tweet fun things, you post great stuff, you share the smiles, the tears, your lives.
In the short time that I've been blogging, I've "met" some seriously amazing women.
I've laughed hysterically over oomlots, joined the ranks of the Crammer Jammers, waited anxiously on the birth of Bitsy, worried about stomach bugs and halo removals.
In the last roughly 3 months, you guys have stepped up and rallied around causes like my own personal fave, the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, and Belli's Mom's current cause, The Bell Center. You've supported each other in goal setting and reaching, from workouts and weight loss to home organization. You've stood up for what you believe in, even when it's been hard to do, and you've helped pick one another up when we're feeling blah.

So, y'all, I'm kinda gonna cheat. Because I cannot, in good conscience, select just 10 of you. I can't.
So, are you reading this?
You ARE!?
Sweet! You WIN!

I know. It's kind of a cop out. But, the award says this:

Thank You
Sweet Friends
Add: Kind Words
Mix In: Sweet Thoughts
Enjoy: Good Times
And YOU have done that for me.
So, go forth, grab your award, and share your things that make you happy!
