Blog Award

I got a blog award and thought I would post it. Thanks to Elena at

The rules of this award are:
1. copy and paste the award on your blog.
2. list who gave the award to you and use a link to her/his blog (or hyperlink).
3. list 10 things that make you happy.
4. pass the award on to other bloggers

Ok, in no particular order, here are 10 things (besides the obvious God and family) that make me happy…

1.) Exercise!!!! This is my all time favorite past time, hobby, you name it. I love the feeling of an awesome workout!

2.) Reading. I cannot start reading a book unless I have time to read the whole thing at once, I do not like waiting for the end!

3.) Singing alone in my car. I do not sing in front of people, even the Happy Birthday song. Only my car and kids are privileged to witness this disaster!

4.) A clean house. Please do not mistake this, I do not always love cleaning but I love walking into or waking up to a nice clean house.

5.) Organization. Yes I am anal but I like to have a plan, lists and order to EVERYTHING.

6.) Date nights with my husband. I love him so much and we NEED our refresher time with no kids to keep us sane!

7.) Makeup. Superficial, yes. Necessary, yes. I love makeup! Total life saver,

8.) Big Sodas from the gas station. No matter what size, they are all 95 cents with tax. Beautiful invention.

9.) My dog. He loves me, he follows me around the house, cries when I leave the room and will take a nap with me anytime. He's a pathetic 3.6 pounds and the best lap dog ever!

10.) Explanation marks!!!! I overuse them!!!! Most things in my life can be summed up with a simple (!!!) at the end of the sentence!

I am passing this on to:

Jennifer @ Eli's Valley
Holly @ Caring for Carleigh


  1. I love exclamation points too :) I wish I could keep my house clean all the time, its a never ending battle especially now that I'm back at work :P. I love that you have date nights I think its important :). I'm more organized at work. Aww I love that your dog follows you :) that's so sweet.

    love and prayers

  2. I wish ours would stay clean once it is clean. It's a vicious cycle!
