Feelin' the Love makes me HAPPY!

A few days (weeks?) ago Celebrate the Malleable Reality over at That's not How You do it was kind enough to give me an award.  I am really bad with these awards.  I get so excited when someone recognizes me with one but then I get too busy and forget to ever blog about it.  But seriously they are like comments with super power.  Anyway I'm supposed to list 10 things that make me happy:

1. Comments/Emails/Mail/Awards from readers- seriously that is the best!  Being able to connect with people I have never met and get encouragement and feedback from them just blows my mind!

2. This guy cuddling in the bed with me:

3. Target- it's my happy place

4. My Bible study girls- at first I thought I would never fit in with my Bible study group.  I almost quit.  I felt out of place and like I didn't belong.  But I stuck it out and now they are some of my best friends.  They encourage me and tell me things I need to hear but don't want to hear sometimes.  We act goofy and crack each other up.  We are all so different, but it works.  They let me be myself and love me just the way I am.  

5. A clean house which unfortunately I don't have at the moment.  I suck at cleaning and I hate it so it is always the last thing to get done.  I need a freaking maid.

6. My new job- seriously 2 weeks in and I am still head over heels

7. Road trips with friends- I am long overdue!

8. Sunshine- whether it is driving around with the sunroof open or laying out on the beach or by the pool, a bright sunshiny day always lifts my mood

9. Strawberry Slushes from Sonic- when I was in college my roommate and I would skip class sometimes and get in her little miata, put the top down, and head to Sonic for a treat in the middle of the afternoon.  Even now stopping at Sonic to get a strawberry slush is such a treat!

10. Hearing from an old friend- there is just something about talking to someone who you haven't talked to in just warms my heart!

I haven't had a lot of time to spend in my reader.  I still try to read every post of the blogs I follow, but I think I have already featured a lot of them here with awards before and I don't want to duplicate and leave someone out.  If I follow your blog and haven't given you an award yet, leave me a comment with a link to your blog.  And if I don't follow your blog yet, leave me a comment so I can discover some new ones.  I know that is the lazy way out, but things have been kind of hectic here!  But I promise to put together a Link Love post soon so you can hopefully discover some great new blogs too!
