Arnetta over at This May Sound Crazy But... awarded me the Happy Award. This is my first award being back in a long time! So THANKS girl! What a way to hop back in the saddle.
Rules are: List 10 things that make you HAPPY. Then tag 10 Happy bloggers you really dig.... ya dig??
10. Collecting Pens makes me happy..
I have a weird obsession with collecting pens. Mainly the uni-ball gel ink ones. I never use the old ball point faded looking ones anymore. They no longer suffice. The larger the collection the better. I like all colors with a fine tip, housed in a humorous coffee cup of some kind. lol
9. Happily utilizing my Green Thumb
I absolutely love gardening. I discovered it after I lost my baby. I wanted to plant some perennials in the fall to come up in the spring in remembrance. I've never thought I would like it but I just fell in love with it. I just hope everything comes up in the spring, that would be the biggest treat this year could offer.
8. Converse Happiness
Chuck Taylor Converse shoes make me happy. I'm so conservative and by the book and then Friday comes peeking it's head around the corner. I'm the office in my jeans, chucks and feeling nice. I might be pushin 30, but I still feel like the old me. I actually went to a birthday dinner at Fogo de Chao in a 'Sex In The City' Charlotte type knee legnth black skirt, a torqouise cardigan, clutch.....and my chucks. I never been hit on so much in my life! ( I would of had the heelz on, but my dawgs were already barkin from the night before, and you know you can't walk cripple in a sexy pair of pumps!)
7. Happiness is in Arts & Crafts
I never was in the girl scouts I just stole their badge but Arts and Crafts are SO relaxing. To have the hands on project to help you clear your mind is great. Anything I want to buy to either give to someone or decorate, I ask myself if I can make it first. Recently for Valentines Day me and my 'just as equally crafty' bff made our own red sexy candles. Even decorated them with red ribbon and I orchestrated a blooming red flower on mine with the rose petals we had left over. Good shit, I must tell ya.
6. Comedies! = Happy
Whenever I'm not happy.. a good gut bustin chuckle will always get me back on the saddle to happiness. I am a comedic enthusiast. I watch all the comedy specials, shows, movies etc. One time I had such a bad day at work I came home and fell into my hands and started crying, I turned on the TV and America's Funniest Video's came on and I was at first smirken a little bit, then at the middle of the show I chuckilin, then towards the end I was all the way into and laughing at the most stupid stuff, but it surely turned my frown upside down.
5. What's happy w/o Delectable Desserts
I have like a SERIOUS sweet tooth.. and they make me happy. Call me an emotional eater if ya want too, but my serotonin levels stay spiked while indulging on some goodness as this. Apple pie is my absolute fave, ice cream didn't come with this pic but I surly can't separate the two. I'm also a mean baker and can throw down. My favorites to bake are Bread Pudding w/ Rum sauce, Pineapple Upside Down biscuits, Banana, Walnut, Cranberry bread creation and many more.
4. Writing: Getting your happiness out on paper.
There isn't noting like creative writing. I've been drawn to it for forever now. It's a release, creativity, imagination, all in one. I remember when I was in 4th grade I wrote 370+ notebook & pencil pages (which was the very thick lined old school paper lol) about all kinds of short stories. I was a child who enjoyed being alone in my room with my radio playing and writing as much as my mind would allow, or how big the callus was on the inside of my middle finger. lol
3. SUMMER IS HAPPY
Life would be life-less without the summer. I just love it. The whole season is just a big smile on my memories. I was born under the JULY sun, and 5 days earlier so was my husband. We love the heat, the sweat, barefoot breeze's, nights and everything else that goes with it. I think since I from Kansas and we get all seasons and more here I'm extra appreciative of summer. I don't know how I would act if I had it all the time. I just know when it FINALLY comes around that's when the party starts.
2. Love is more than happiness..
...but I just adore it. It literally makes the world go round. Makes me still crazy about my husband, makes me call my mom and pet my dog until he falls asleep resting in all my lil nooks and crannies. I call myself the 'Lovers Lover" cause I'm just so bad ass at it. Be careful how close you get cause I just might love you too.. lol <3 The greatest love-John 3:16.
1. MUSIC is dancing in the happiness..
