follow the yellow brick road

I've decided to do one of those kill 2 birds, one stone thing. Call it double dipping I suppose. Here's my reason for this...

I'm jumping in on this again

Friday Follow


While you're here visiting, I figure it's a good time to showcase a particular award I got. Part of accepting this award is to let the blog world know who passed it on and then I have to list 10 things that make me happy.

I figure these 10 things may help you to get to know who I am a little and hopefully you'll stick around for future ramblings.


Award


I received this award from Meg over at Just Another Manic Mommy. I recently stumbled upon her blog and I love it! She is so funny!

Now 10 things that make me happy.


1. My husband who loves me so much, good mood or bad.


2. My kids, GG and Little Dude. Yes they can drive me up a wall, but everyday they do things that make me realize my life wouldn't be the same without them. GG loves to make "I Love Mom" cards at school. Little Dude can be very cuddly and loves to give hugs.


3. Yarn. Yes, I said yarn makes me happy. I guess it's more of what I do with it than the yarn itself. I taught myself to crochet last year and I'm hooked. If you click on "handmade" up above you can check out some of the things I've made so far.


4. Coffee. Actually, caffeine in general make me happy, but I especially love a tall, hot cup o' java from Caribou.


5. Sports. I love football and hockey so much that I probably bleed black and gold. The Steelers not getting to the Superbowl, let alone the playoffs, does not make me happy. But win or lose, I love those boys!


6. Chocolate. Do I really need to explain this one!?


7. TV. I don't have a lot of shows, but the ones I do watch, I'm addicted to. Grey's, Lost, and my new favorites, ghost shows. Especially Ghost Adventures. I love scary stuff, even though sometimes those shows are a little corny.


8. Blogging. I have fallen in love with my blog. I love sharing what's going on with kids, but I also love that I have a place to go when I just need to let it all out. I've also discovered that I love to change the look of my blog. That's just a heads up in you do decide to hang around a while!


9. Anywhere not cold. I will admit the snow can look pretty, but I hate being cold! It's so hard for me to warm back up! If you took away hurricanes, I'd live on the beach for the rest of my life!


10. Tattoos. I have 4 and am trying to get another one. Each one has some sort of meaning behind it. This one is my favorite as of now...



I have my husband hooked on them now. So when I am able to get another one, I guarantee he will be right there with me getting #3.


So there you have it. My top 10...

Oh, that's only 9?
Well let's make being done with that list my #10, k?
That wasn't quite as easy as I thought it would be.

Thank you again, Meg, for the award.

And thank you for stopping by.


Until next time...

I'm loving your tat...and chocolate too. I wish I could convince myself to switch over to dark chocolate. I'd feel a little less guilty!

Don't you hate how expensive tattoos are by the way? The one I had on my blog recently (of my daughter's back) cost her $700. YOWZA!!!!

Caffeine make sme happy too, but not in coffee form. Blech.

Queen Beth said...

Ah yes...yarn. I walk down the yarn aisle and think of all the projects that "could" be made that probably "won't" be made because I never sit down long enough to crochet anything now days. But yes, I love yarn too! :)

Black and gold, all the way!

When I first moved away from the 'burgh, almost 11 years ago now, I wasn't right on the beach, but on an inlet...less than 2 months after I moved, we had a hurricane and my place was flooded with 2 feet of water. NOT FUN.
