Catch up on a few awards

I've been given a few awards recently & kept meaning to share these. And then life got busy. But doesn't it do that for everyone?

Jen over at A Girl in Pearls & A Boy with Toys shared the Beautiful Blog award with me. And I just realized her blogspot is 867-53oh9 - LOVE that song!

Thanks Jen! I'm supposed to share this with 7 other bloggers who have a beautiful blog. This one I'm sharing with my 7 newest followers. If I haven't been to your blog yet, I will - it may be this weekend, but pinky swear.

Cari - Blessed on the River
Patience - A Reason or a Season
Frugal Fabulous Finds
Lara - who doesn't have a blog - so Hi!
Jenn - Jeans Friday
Vanessa - An Exquisite Waste of Time
New Mommy - You, Me and Baby Makes Three

Trish over at Pink Preppy Lilly Lover passed on the Happy Award.

I'm to list 10 things that make me happy & share this with 10 other bloggers.

Easy part first.

1. The spring weather we're experiencing right now. I'm currently jonesing for a warm Friday afternoon after work spent sitting outside at Jack's enjoying a few beers - looking at you DEE.

2. Pepe Cat not throwing up hairballs/foodballs. Thank you sweet Baby Jesus.

3. Long walks outside after work with Hayden in this glorious weather (see #1). Anybody having flashbacks to and those descriptions where everyone listed long walks outside (usually on the beach)? No? Just me?

4. Getting my hair done. Nothing better in the world. When they throw in a free deep conditioning? Heaven!

5. Manicures & Pedicures. Thanks Gwen for sticking that idea in my head. Need spring colors on these toesies soon!

6. Driving my car with the sunroof open & stereo bumping.

Yeah, I said stereo bumping.

7. My Kindle. Love it. Enough said.

8. New Handbags - Thanks Kelsey. I've got this baby stuck in my head. Along with visions of manicures & pedicures.

9. Getting my eyebrows done. My girl is the BEST! If your in CLT & need a person, let me know. b.e.g. - this shout out is for you! Anyone else thought about the "This Bud's for you" commercial? Beer on the brain much?

10. Trying a new recipe & having it be a sensational success!

I could keep going, but that would set the bar pretty high for you all. Since I'm sharing this award with each of you who would like to grab it & share 10 things about yourself.

11. Just because I can - I love getting to the end of a list & realizing I still have things I could share!

Congratulations on both of your awards!!! You totally deserve them. I am loving this weather too and sad that it isn't sticking around for the weekend.

Thanks to you, I have been thinking about those bags too. :) Have a great day.

Long walks are bad, but the worst is how every guy on match talks about how he LOVES to travel. Apparently the men are all jet-setters who travel to multiple countries in a year. I have no idea how they hold real jobs. I am calling BS on the majority of them!
You make me happy!

1) I could totally use a brow wax, pedi, and mani!

2) Wearing flip flops in the office, feet hidden under the cover of my desk, makes me smile like no other!

3) Cheerful people saying hello as I left my interview brought a smile to my face today!

4) Hubs hearing back from people after sending in job applications!

5) Parental visit next weekend & a huge Italian dinner in celebration!

6) Being able to run a hell of a lot farther than I ever thought possible!

7) Kitties that snuggle with me AFTER the alarm goes off in the AM. After being the key operative word in the aforementioned sentence!

8) Coupons in the mail for select stores to go shopping at, once Lent is over!

9) Open windows in the apartment, after an allergy pill.

10) Children's Chewable Allergy medicine. I don't think I'll ever go back to swallowing pills now that I can do this!

YAY! Congrats on your awards! Loving your list, riding around with the roof open is the best. OMG stereo bumping! HAH! Hooray for freshly coiffed hair and mani/pedi!

Oh I am totally stealing B.E.G.'s tip above RE: chewable children's allergy medicine - BRILLIANT!


Jenn said...

Carrie @ Laugh Love Eat Ice Cream said...

Congratulations on your awards!

Re: #3 on the Happy List - Did you meet your husband on match? I met mine on e-harmony and I always enjoy hearing about other couples who met online. :)
