I Received An Award ~ "I'd like to thank the Academy..."


It always makes my day to receive an award from any of my readers, though I must admit (rather sheepishly) that I wasn't really clear that I was supposed to pass them on too!  Oops!  Well, I will not make this mistake again and so here goes...the honor that I was bestowed was the Happy 101 Award!


This award is from The Practical Mom Guide.  Check out all of the great thoughts, freebies and giveaways she has listed on her site!

Here are the rules:
1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
2. List who gave the award to you and use a link to her blog (or hyperlink).
3. List 10 things that make you happy.
4. Pass the award on to other bloggers and visit their blog to let them know about the award.






10 things that make me happy:

1. The first cold front we get in autumn.  (I'm from Texas, so this is a nice refreshing change from the HOT summer!)
2. My family, including my dog.
3. The smell of gardenias.
4. Pants in my size that are somehow too big!
5. New purses.
6. Going for a walk outdoors.
7. Dessert!
8. Going out to eat.
9. Making anything with my two little hands.
10. Checking things OFF my to-do list!


Here are the bloggers I am passing this award to:

The Daily Mom Diaries
Midday Escapades
A Lil' of This and a Lil' of That


Okay, I'm off to spread the good news!  Have a great day!
