Here are the rules for the award:
1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
2. Name the person who gave the award to you and link to their blog (or hyperlink).
3. List 10 things that make you happy.
4. Pass the award on to other bloggers and visit their blogs to let them know.

I'm super excited!! I received another award! Guys I cannot even pretend like things like this are no big deal. I STINKIN' LOVE IT!!!
Tracy over at Four wonders of Life for some reason thought I deserved this award. Truly, Tracy from the bottom of my heart ... Thank you, and thanks for your kind words.

Now for ten things things that make me happy. There are gazillions! But I'll pick my top ten,

10. Chocolate. This could easily have been higher on my list, but I don't want to look shallow.LOL

9. Shopping. Anywhere, anytime. But it has to be a bargain. The bigger the savings the bigger the adrenalin rush.

8. Music. Just about anything with meaning. I guess that leaves out a lot of today's "big" hits. I love Christian music that rocks!

7. Gardening. I love a day in the garden to get dirty. Planting and watching my flowers grow is awesome. Especially when they do really well, and the backyard just has flowers everywhere. Like the Secret Garden. Well, that's what I'd like it to look like.

6. Crickets! The best thing is a warm summer night and falling asleep to the sound of crickets.

5. Friends, both far and near. Not coming from big family and having all of Peter's family in Poland, we have a family of friends. Couldn't ask for a better "family". Cyberspace friends all included. Don't know what I would do without you all. That is the absolute honest truth.

4. A long and lazy day at the beach, followed by chowder and clam cakes on the way home, ice cream if we have room in our bellies(who am I kidding... if. HA), and babes smelling like the salt air and all asleep by the time we get home.

3.Watching my children sleep. Makes me cry tears of joy and disbelief that these little monkeys are actually mine.

2. My hubby and kids. What a bunch!!! They are all number two, I have NO FAVORITES! I know they'll be checking! I love you all... MORE!

1. Jesus!!! Gotta love Him! And I do with all my heart.

Now the pass off!

Courtney, at The Adventures of Pudge and Zippy If you've never visited this blog, go now, actually run!!! Courtney describes the every day antics of her two amazingly beautiful children with such flair! Truly a therapeutic daily visit for me. I laugh until I cry, then go back to show my hubby and kids and laugh all over again. Love them!!!

Tausha, at Let Your Troubles Roll By , A beautiful mom, with an equally beautiful family. But the show stealer is her son Sam. And if you hurry over there you're sure to get an eyeful! Warning not for the weak of stomach. Got your curiosity going yet? Let me just say, Sam is amazing!

Linny, at A Place Called Simplicity, OK, there's not enough space in cyberspace to tell you how incredible she is. Her whole family is inspiring. Her heart is overflowing with love for the orphan and her home is overflowing with children she and her husband have adopted. Her faith is unfaltering. And you can't help but fall in love with Jesus more and more just by reading her posts. Especially her Memorial Box Monday posts. Go there now and on EVERY MONDAY!!

Patti, at To Love Endlessly , faithful, beautiful , and a constant support to me. Also the mom to Marissa, who is the cutest and smartest , little sweet you've ever seen. And who just happens to have a thing for Splenda! HMMM, you'll have to go over there and search for that adorable post.

Maggie Mae, at Take a Walk on the Happy Side, Here you will laugh until your sides hurt, cry, and fall in love with not one but two of the most adorable little men in the world. I could go as far to say they are the cutest twin boys I have ever met. Not knowing any other twin boys I am not playing favorites. hehe.
Their mom is one of the BEST writers out there and always has a boatload of information. Definitely one of my favorite places to visit.

Yep, I love crickets, too. Not so much when they find their way into our basement or our living room, but I put them back outside where they can sing to me from the other side of the wall.

Kele@ said...

We are definitely friends, LOVE chocolate, the sound of crickets and watching my babies sleep make me weepy as hell!
