So Happy

The other day, I was so happy to find out that I had won two more blogging awards--the Creative Writer Award (Thanks Corra!) and the Happy Award (Thanks Kristin and Kristi and Lynnette!).

The first thought that popped into my mind after I won (actually, the same thought pops up every time I win an award) was: These people must be crazy for wanting to give my silly little blog an award.

But, then I realized (thanks to Debra and her fabulous idea to insert subliminal messages into posts) my subliminal messages [You love Kimberly and want to visit her blog every day! You also want to send Debra and Kimberly chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate] must be working. Phew. Thank goodness for that! (They're hidden! You can look, but you'll never find them. Bwahahahah...)

The second thought that popped into my mind (again, always) was: Wahoo! Yippee! YAY!!!
Exactly in that order, too.

So, firstly, I want to thank Corra ,Kristin, Kristi and Lynnette for graciously passing these awards along to me! I love you guys and your blogs, too! And before we move any further, please check out these four amazing ladies. Now!

Okay, now that you've discovered the greatness that is Corra, Kristin, Kristi and Lynnette I can move on. Normally today would be the day where I would pass along these two fabulous awards. However, today I am running short on time (we all know how indecisive I am, right?). So, I am going to postpone the award ceremony for a week (hopefully I can make my decisions by then. Hopefully being the key word).

And last, but certainly not least, the Happy Award requires me to share ten things that make me happy. As you all know, today I'm short on time. So, I'm only going to share six (why six? you really think I have an answer for why six? Hmm? Do ya?) (plus rules are only made for one thing: to be broken. HA!). Oh, and I promise I won't list Twilight...because that's like a given, right?

So, here goes nothing: Six things that make me HAPPY!

1) My hubby - it would look bad if I didn't list him first, right?

2) My shiny, new Macbook - it has made me really, really happy this past week!

3) Blogging - enough said!

4) Warm and gooey Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies and Peppermint Tea - YUM!

5) TV - I told you I was addicted, didn't believe me???

6) Writing - all the time, Reading - everything, the Young Adult section of the bookstore - Duh!, and all of the lovely writers and people I've met through blogging - you all complete me. : )

(Okay, some of those should count for more than one. So I didn't break the rules too much. HA!)

I want to thank everyone for reading my blog. I feel sorry for you sometimes...really. Not today, though. No, today's post is made of awesomeness. Now, tomorrow's post??? Guess you'll have to come back and see. You guys are great!

Next week: Awards Day! YAY! Part 2

Enjoy your day, everyone!


  1. I have received these awards but I would still continue to follow you because, awards aside, you write an interesting blog.


  2. Congrats on your awards!! And the new Macbook! That's so exciting! And I'm with you on the gooey chocolate chip cookies! I always take them out of the oven a minute or two before they're completely done. :)

  3. Ann- Awww...thanks! You just made my day. : )

    Kristin - Aren't cookies the best just before they're completely done? So good!

    Thanks, to both of you! I hope you both have a wonderful day. : )

  4. Congrats on the awards! And Debra's right: we do love you and want to visit your blog every day!

  5. Congrats on both awards. You deserve them.

    Lynnette Labelle

  6. One of the many reasons I love your never cease to entertain me and make me smile!!! So...I missed it...where do I send the chocolate??? LOL.

    Love the list and we are totally on the same wave length I swear...althought different hubby's and the Macbook is on my wish list!

    Have a great day!!

  7. Kristan - LOL. I think I might have worded my post a little wrong. I just borrowed Debra's SM idea. The subliminal messages were all mine. (Bwahahahaha) : )

    You are too sweet, though! : )

    Lynnette - Thanks!

    Kristi - You're so sweet! I'm glad I entertain someone other than myself, now. LOL. : )

    Goal #1 - accomplished. YES!

    I'm thinking, maybe next week I'll add some subliminal messages just for you!

    [send Kristi a Macbook and lots of chocolate!] [Now!]

    You might want to check your mail. Your Macbook should be arriving any minute now. : )

    Have a great day, everyone!

  8. Well deserved! Congratulations. See you tomorrow :)

  9. Lisa and Laura - Yes! Mission accomplished! See you tomorrow. Have a great day!

  10. Congrats on the award! I love your blog, too. :)

  11. Now I want cookies! You did that on purpose, didn't you :). Congrats on the awards. You totally deserve them.

  12. Elana - Thanks! I love yours, too. : )

    Eva - Tee hee. I most certainly [did] not. : )

    Hope you have a great day!

  13. I'll second that about the cookies. Cause I'm all about anything with chocolate:) And I still want a Macbook!

  14. Congrats on your awards and great list! :)

  15. Melissa - Cookies are YUM! And you have to get Macbook. Everyone needs a Macbook! : )

    Jenn - Thanks and thanks!

  16. My MacBook makes me happy too! Although when I first got my Mac after being a PC-girl, there were moments of frustration when I wanted to toss it off the back deck. Now, though, it's pure love.

    Just found your blog. I love your profile pic; it seems perfect for the back of a book cover!

  17. Guinevere - It was...different at first. But it didn't take me that long to completely fall for my Mac. Now I know he's the one for me. : )

    And thanks, you're so sweet. I hate taking pictures and that one of the few I actually like. : )

    Hopefully it will grace the back of a book cover...someday.

    Hope you have a great day!

  18. Congrats on your awards!! Between that and your happinesses (and most especially Mack), I'd say you must be floating sky high!!

    And the fact that you broke the rules and only listed 6 things pretty much raises your rank in my bloggie friends list ;) You're too awesome.

  19. Carol - Thanks! I am on a little happiness high. Plus, rules shmules. They're made to be broken, right? : )

    I hope you have a great weekend!
