I got an Award!

How awesome is that!!! I am like bouncing off the walls right now!! I am so flattered!! Thank you!! Jessica from Me and My Bucket awarded me this beauty!! Thank you thank you thank you Jessica!!! You all seriously need to go over and visit her.. She is so stinkin cute... Some day I hope to meet her (in person). She has great ideas and the cutest baby boy with " pinch me, kiss me cheeks"!! Gotta love it!!

Anyhoo, So with this award I need to tell you all 10 things about me that make me happy... Huuuummmm (wiggling fingers in front of me).

So here goes:

10 Things that make me Happy........

1. Anything Twilight... Yes, I am a Twihard!! I admit it.. The hubs thinks I am crazy but that is okay. Go Team Edward.... :O) (Have you heard R Pats sing? I likey!! ) I read all 4 books in like 2 weeks.. I even reread the last few chapters of the 4th book twice... Yes, obsessed is my middle name!! :O)

2. I love to sing. I might not be good at it but singing just makes me happy!

3. I am a huge Reality TV freak! Right now I am watching both Housewives of NY and New Jersey! My life is pretty much drama free (which is fine by me) so I live vicariously through these ladies... I am also soooooo excited that Big Brother is starting soon... Happy dance!!

4. Chex mix makes me happy! Now my fav is the regular kind but I do like the sweet n' salty one too. I am trying to wing myself off of it though...

5. My memory foam pillow. The hubs has tried very hard to steal this from me... NO ONE can use my pillow!

6. My kids! I can not get enough of their hugs and kisses... They bring me such joy!

7. My husband! I can truly say that I love him more today than I did 13 years ago when we got married... He has sacrificed so much for us and i am so proud of him... He just finished his 2nd degree in College!! Yeah Jason!!!!!!! :O)

8. Shoes! I wear them always... Well, mostly flip flops even in the winter... When I find a pair I really like watch out because that is pretty much the only shoes you will see me in.. (BUT, I hate feet! Go figure?) I had to have a moment of silence last year for my most favorite pair. I had them since my 2nd child was born... He turns 8 next month.. It took me like 3 weeks to find a suitable pair to replace them... I am very picky when it comes to flip flops!

9. Cherry Dr. Pepper... Now I am trying very hard not to drink it... I have cut back to 2 cans a week... I wish it was in fountain form but it is probably a good thing its not.... Instead I like to drink Fruit2O. The raspberry one is fab!!!

10. This one puts me over the edge! The hubs knows I am definitely nuts due to this one... I am a HUGE INDY FANATIC!! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!! Just finished watching the qualifying for the Indy 500... So happy that it's next week!! Go Helio!! He just earned $175,000. 00 for getting the pole position... I NEED HIS JOB!!! Team Penske all the way... Did I mention that Team Penske qualified all 3 of their cars in the TOP 4 spots... Team Target/Ganassi took position 3 but Penske has positions 1, 2, and 4!!! Super fast!!!

I wish to add one more thing that makes me happy!!! It's all of you that take the time to read my rantings and check out what I have been up too... Blogging has brought me so much joy. It is an outlet that I never knew I needed... You all keep me inspired to do more, be more, and enjoy more... So here's to you!! BIG HUGS!!!!! :O)

Now onto who I am giving this same award to.....
