Today is Thank-you's Day for me...

I am going to start with thanking a few bloggers who've helped me get my blog going -- I have emailed and harassed these ladies on more than one occasion:

3. Melissa at i swim for oceans.
4. Kimberly at She Scribes.
5. Elaine at Clothed Much.

Each of these women have taken the time to help guide me in this blogging process and I am ever indebted. Also, their blogs are amazing -- so I hope you check them out! Also, the 24th is Melissa's birthday -- so wish her a super happy one!

Next up: I won the Happy 101 Award from both Beth at Thinking of Thinking and Amelia at Imagination in Focus. Beth and I have been friends since second year university, so over ten years, I believe. Her site is awesome -- it deals with the daily life of a woman, teacher, and advocate. Amelia's site is also awesome (for lack of a more fitting word): she does reviews and is most fond of YA fiction. She has a real gift with words and on Mondays always puts up a new and inspirational quote. Please go check their sites out! 

The rules for this Bliss (Happy 101) Award are that I must list 10 things that make me happy, then pass it along to 10 other bloggers.

1. My daughter E.
1.b. nap-time.
2. My husband J.B.
3. Saturday night hubby made dinner and store bought wine.
4. Movies in movie theatres.
5. Working out/DANCING!
6. Writing for this blog.
7. Students.
8. Good friends.
9. Starbucks or Second Cup Skinny Vanilla Latte no foam.
10. Make-up/dressing up.
11. Reading (novels, celebrity smutt, blogs). 

sorry I could not keep it to ten.

Here are ten bloggers who make me happy:
1. Melissa. -- for her consistent posts and constant support.
2. Beth. -- for her enthusiasm and thoughtful posts.
3. Natthefatrat. -- for her ability to take seemingly innocuous material and write the best posts!
4. Elaine.   -- for her kindness and her amazing sense of style.
5. Stephanie.-- for her book selections and amazing comments on my blog!
6. Amelia.-- for her way with words.
7. What a Nerd Would Wear. --for her amazing sense of style and the way she can tie a scarf!
8. Kimberly.--for the immediate responses to posts and questions -- very kind.
9. Lisa and Laura. -- for their d-bag-o meter and other such hilarities. (new word--go with it:-)).
10. and another Beth. -- for her honest posts.
11. (b/c I cannot count) Forever-improving girl -- for her amazing writing gift...I cannot share her site with you without her permission -- but I will ask. I asked and she said YES!!! Oh, you will enjoy it! She's the best writer I know.

***There are actually more I can think of -- which is amazing because not even a month ago I struggled trying to come up with ten. Wow blogging really does make me happy!
