Happy Thoughts and Bloggylove

I was given this award from The Wifey Blogs and The Mommyologist, two awesome bloggers whom I would totally hang out with irl...if only we lived anywhere near each other.
*I'm editing this right now because Jessica gave me this award this morning, too. I feel thrice-loved.

The rules that go along with this award say that you have to list 10 ten things that make you happy. I'm going for the little things here, not even going to list Hubs and the boys, though of course, they make me happy.

1. Sleep. A full night's sleep, sleeping in, a nap. You can probably tell how much I've been dealing with babies and small children, to value sleep this much.

2. Reading a good book, watching a good movie, or watching bad tv: uninterrupted. Anything that I can do where I get to sit on my butt and zone out for a while, preferably with a glass of wine.

3. A well-fitting bra. Not that I've had too many of these, but when I can find one that doesn't make me think all day "when can I take this damn thing off?" - it's magic. And if it makes the girls look perky again, that's even better.

4. Butter. Yes, I know that just yesterday, I resolved to go easy on dishes made with insane amounts of butter- and I am trying to stick to that. But, it does not weaken my love of butter.

5. The beach. Cheesy as it sounds, I love walking on the beach- or even just sitting out there. I'll even take sitting on the deck and just being able to see it. The vastness of the ocean, the sounds of the waves crashing, the smell of the air: I love it all.

6. Getting my hair did. I find it near-impossible to fix my hair, but when I just get out of the hairdresser, I feel like I have FABULOUS hair and am reminded why I didn't choose to shave it all off. Just a note to those of you who think my ponytail challenge from yesterday is impossible: just want to point out that I didn't "ban the bun"- not even the messy one.

7. Date night with Hubs. So we can be reminded that we love each other and we aren't just partners in the war against our kids...I joke, I joke...partners in raising our children, but that we actually love AND like each other.

8. Girls' Nights Out!!!!

9. Losing weight(not the dieting or exercising part of it, but seeing the numbers on the scale go down makes me extremely happy)

10. Bloggyland and all of you. I used to not get it. I remember seeing a onesie that said "My mommy is blogging this" and I rolled my eyes. But, now I get that it is a wonderful community of people that so easily embraces others' stories; it's friendship.

Soooo, now I'm supposed to pass this award on to 10 other bloggers....but since I was given this twice in one week, I'm making my own rules and saying that I can therefore give it to 20(though now I could give it to 30....hmm....nah, I'm too tired for that!)

Hiding From the Kids, Supahmommy, All You Need is Love, Drama for Mama, Everyday in Gray, Foursons, Pickle Talks, kssnnikkel, La Vita e Bella, Ma What's for Dinner?, Mommy Wants Vodka, MommyBrain, Choo-choos, cars, and lipgloss, Stir-fry Awesomeness, The Daily Dribbles, The Mother Load, Princess of Sarcasm, Think Tank Mama, Mommy Matters, and Lessons Learned.

Be sure to check out some of these awesome bloggers!

I love your list! Nothing sweeter these days than a full nights sleep!

hear hear on the sleep! Shoosh... I think I'm beyond the point of actually remembering how it feels to get a full 8 hours - uninterrupted - of sleep. Mostly likely thats my own mental defense at self-preservation.

Congrats on the award! It's always fun to see in writing 10 things that make you happy. Good way to remind oneself of the positives in life.

Have a great weekend

Blogger LZ @ My Messy Paradise said...

I could make a list of 2, and you nailed them first - sleep and a good book. Even better? Falling asleep early while reading a good book. Better yet? Staying asleep all night...
Congrats on your awards!

These are great! How could I have left #3 off my list? I saw a recent picture of me and couldn't believe how bad my boobs were sagging. I'm in serious need of a bra intervention. SERIOUS!

And I've always said that if I ever have a huge bank account, I'm going to the salon a couple times a week to have my hair blown out. I can't stand drying my hair and LOVE having it done!

Congrats on the award. I read your list and thought "dang! her and I could be TWINS!". I can't wait to check out the bloggers on your list. Thanks!

Shell I totally hear you on Number 3. I am a total wreck in that department, especially after baby #2. I need to be paying the lingerie department a visit ASAP.

Happy N.Y. (not new york)

Aww, thank you!!

I agree on pretty much everything you said. Getting my hair done makes me extremely happy. I can't wait to finally get rid of my 3 inch long roots...however, I have to REMEMBER to call and make an appointment first.

Our happy things are almost identical! Maybe I'll just do a post and say "What Shell said." and give you a link. (kidding)
