I'm a Bad Blogger, And "Hoo's Birthday" card

Recently two wonderfully kind people, Melissa from Those Northern Skies and Ashley from Life After the Aisle, have surprised me with blog awards. I really appreciate that anyone thinks I'm worthy of these and try to do my best to pass them on timely but boy have I been bad about these!And continuing being a bad blogger ( shame shame shame) I'm going to combine the two. Ssshhh don't tell the blog award people!

Melissa passed on the Ms. Bright Side award to me (thank you!)

 and Ashley gave me the One Lovely Blog award ( thank you too!)
The combined rules are:
1. List the top ten things that make me happy.
2. Share with my favourite bloggers and ask them to do the same.
3. Link the blogs I choose and link the blogs of the people who gave it to me.
4. Accept the award. Post it on your blog with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
5. Pay it forward to 15 other lovely bloggers.


Top 10 Things That Make Me Happy (not in order of importance ) 


1.)    Chocolate ( that was a given right? )
2.)    Family and friends 
3.)    Mexican Food
4.)    Sweater and boot weather! Love clear crisp Fall days
5.)    Finding new blogs with amazing creative people like the ones who gave me this award 
6.)    Random acts of kindness
7.)    Starbucks iced mochas all year long
8.)    Creating
9.)    Stashbusting
10.) The end of Stashbusting :)

In the "paying it forward" part, (also something I really really love and believe in) since I have to limit it to 15 blogs, here goes, but it's hard because I follow so many amazing blogs. And if I happen to pick you and you're a blog that doesn't do awards, no worries...I know several don't and  I won't cry...too much...just kidding...totally understand.

I didn't know there was a card making day, thanks for the heads up. And Congratulations! on your award. I agree, sometimes you have to double them up - it can be a lot of work. But good for you! Happy Tuesday!

I am really honored, flattered, and touched that you'd consider me for the award! THANK YOU! I love your list of things that make you happy! I would definitely agree with all 10 (but have a particular weakness for 1 & 3). Ole!
