Happiness 101 Award....I feel the love and I"m happy!

I was busy finishing a project today when I thought, oooh a few minutes with my blogging friends might give me the energy I need to complete it! So wasn't I surprised when I opened my mail and "Katie from "Tote's Life" flagged me for the Happiness 101 Award! I was shocked to say the least!

~The rules are simply list 10 things that make you happy
~Tag 10 other bloggers and link back to the person who tagged you

So in no particular order here are the things that make me Happy!


This is just one pile of books by my bedside table. I cannot get enough. I am a voracious reader and I read everyday. If I don't read I feel lost! Books put a smile on my face. My kids can never say they are bored because they have piles and piles of books too!

Chance by Chanel~

I adore this perfume! My hubby got it for me for Christmas, and when I wear it, it makes me smile!

My finished project~

Ok, so this is what I have been working on. I know this saying has been everywhere around blog land, but I truly love it. So Anna don't curse me for doing it again, lol. I loved your other ideas for sayings and hey, you might see those on here too!
I am truly HAPPY that this is finished. Don't look too closely! I cut each letter out by hand and then had to free hand the crown, ugh! But oh so Happy!

Peanut M&M's~

I get almost giddy when I eat these, just like a little kid at Christmas, honest!

Best Friends~

This is my sister Amy on the left. You have all heard about her many times before. She is my best friend, a fabulous cook, a great mother and seriously one smart cookie! The other is of my good friend Debbie. She is a great listener and one who is always in your corner. Her daughter and my daughter are best buds as well, so that makes me happy!

Halloween~Warning this may scare some~

I love Halloween and I am known around here as the Queen of Halloween! This was me last year at Halloween. I was a crazy witch lady. I dress up every year and the neighborhood kids love it! I also start decorating in August, because I love it so much!

This year I was a Vampiress with fangs. Claire's kindergarten class thought my fangs were real, and wondered how long it took me to "Grow" them! Ha, boy did that make me laugh!

This Little Lady~

I love it when Claire plays dress-up, what a cutie! Star quality don't you think?


I hope I didn't offend anyone, but it is the truth, just ask anybody!

Love it!

This saying makes he laugh! Hmmm, sounds good to me!

Coffee makes me so happy, can you tell?

Exclamation Points~
I probably over use them but they really make me happy! So I will continue to use them!

Decorating with words~
Can you have too many? No, I don't think so! Can you tell I love coffee?

Paris and Crowns~

My husband made this for me in the kitchen. He framed the letters and did the paint job. If you look to the right, its my collection of crowns! Well, I am the queen you know!

I'd like to say the last thing that makes me happy is all of you! I started this blog in November because I felt like I had lots to say and thought it was easier to tell people that I didn't know. I cannot believe the responses I have received and from all over the world. Seriously, did I ever in my wildest think I would be chatting with women in Australia and England? I have throughly enjoyed the friendships this has brought and have loved every minute of it.

Ok so I don't know if I made it to 10 but I'm exhausted, I hope you enjoyed all of them. I need to now give this award out to ten people but this is so hard because you are all so deserving. I will do my best!

A M~

So maybe I did do 11 and not 10 but it was really hard. I hope you ladies have as much fun as I did, Thanks again Katie
