My first Blog Award!

Wow! Today is just full of firsts for me!! I am so thankful to have such great blogger friends! Charlotte, that sweet, beautiful mama over at The Charlotte Observer just awarded me this. Stop by her blog when you can, you won't regret it! She is full of joy and happiness and precious pictures!!

Ten things that make me happy:

1. Coming home to my wonderful husband and my sweet dog every night and feeling safe and content.

2. Knowing that I have an amazing God up there watching over me who loves me unconditionally.

3. New clothes. Wait, who am I kidding? New ANYTHING! I just love new things. It could be a pencil for goodness sakes.

4. Making cupcakes. I am new at it but I love trying out new recipes and tasting the final product! I love to be creative and think up new combinations and ways to decorate them.

5. Sunshine, the beach, margaritas... (Don't ya'll like how I snuck 3 in there?)

6. Sitting out on my screened in porch with a good book.

7. Getting my hair, nails, and toes done. It's actually quite superficial but it makes me feel good nonetheless!

8. Kids. I love kids! I love new babies and watching them smile or watching children run around and play. They are so happy and so oblivious.

9. Trips with my family. I cherish every moment we spend together and the memories we make.

10. Laughing and spending time with friends. I love remembering old times and inside jokes. I love having everyone over and watching everyone mingle and enjoy themselves.

Ahhh!! It's over already? I could do this all day! Of course ya'll probably don't want to sit here and read my blog all day so I'll just go ahead and award some of my newest sweet friends with this award instead. Love you girls!
