Happy Blog Award



Thanks to Karen over at I'm Always Write blog for nominating me for the Happy Blog Award.

Awesome.

So the deal is I list 10 things that make me happy and then pass it on to 10 blogs. However I think I will limit it to 5 blogs because I'm a bit of the same mindset as DL at Cruising Altitude, and ten seems like an awful lot...

Things that make me happy and why, in no particular order:

1. My dogs. Because I love them and they make me laugh


George. AKA Porge



Yvie. AKA Miss B



Tula. AKA Toots





2. My Family. Because I love them and they make me laugh





3. Naruto Shippuden. Because it's a great continuation off the first story line and it makes me want to be a ninja.



4. The weekend. Because, dur, I don't have to work.



5. Shopping. Yay! spending money makes me feel good temporarily!


those bags don't look very full...



6. Food stuff. Because it tastes good.



this is a crappy pic of some of the sushi Twin and I had this last Monday on our day off. mmmmm




6. The MN renfest. Because I get to do #5, #6, bring #1 and #2, all while dressed up.


that's exactly what it looks like. take it all in...



7. Swimming. Because I think it's fun. I wish I lived on a lake or had a pool

little did you know, this is where I actually do my swimming. jealous?



8. Reading. Because it's fun and makes me want to write better.



9. Board games. Because they're fun and I often win

to be fair, I don't know if I've actually won this game yet...



10. Badminton. Again, because it's fun.

myself, Twin and Mom can play for HOURS






And the 5 blogs I will pass this on too (feel free to participate or not)

1. Palindrome at Musings of a Palindrome

2. Teebore at Gentlemen of Leisure

3. Joan Crawford at Things I Yell At You

4. Sandi at It Started With a Ritz Cracker

5. Anne at Piedmont Writer

Your Friendly Neighborhood Palindrome said...

Oh, I'll participate. I'll blow your mind with how much I participate.

DL Hammons said...

You have two #6's. CHEATER!!!

:) Congrats to you.

Falen said...

Palindrome - BRING IT!

DL - HAH! Let's pretend I did that on purpose to see who was really paying attention. Yeeesss that sounds logical... Unfortunately the only prize you get is my embarrassment...

Piedmont Writer said...

Thanks Sarah, but I've already won this award. I was going to send it off to you but someone beat me to it, congrats.

Teebore said...

Thanks! I'll participate, though I doubt anyone I'd pass the award on to reads my blog, especially since you stole two of the people to which I'd give it. ;)

Your dogs crack me the eff up. I love Frenchies.

In all the years I've been to Renfest, I've somehow missed the wee man riding a tortoise.

Shopping makes me feel good too! Yay capitalism!

Finally, the world needs more bacchanal swimming holes like the one you pictured.

Joan Crawford said...

Thanks, Lady! Yeah! I too enjoy various things!

Falen said...

Joan - sorry, this is kind of on the heels of your most recent post - I already had this scheduled when i read your post yesterday and i was waaaaayyy too lazy to change it

Teebore - you should totes get a frenchie, it would match Poe the dachshund nicely. Yeesss...

Lizard said...

Congrats Sarah!!! (OK I just panicked and checked to make sure your first name wasn't a secret). I got you and twin's xmas card btw when I got home, and it's so cute. Maybe I'll send out a similar themed one next year featuring my laptop gallivanting in the snow. P.S. I'll let you figure out who I am based on my mysterious username.

Falen said...

Lizard - YAY! I'm glad you showed up! I'm also glad you got our card. In hindsight, we could have just given you one when you were here...

Nicole Ducleroir said...

Great list -- loved the photo illustrations! What's Renfest?? Looks like a blast :))

Falen said...

Nicole - ohhhh Renfest is this magical place with delicious food, delicious men in tights or kilts and shopping! Also you can dress up as a pirate or wench or gypsy and no one thinks it's wierd because they're all dressed up too!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Congrats on your award. And yes, I'm jealous of your lake. And of your mad skillz in board games. I never win. Not even in Sorry, and that's pretty lame.

Falen said...

Carolina - yeah, but Sorry is tricksy, and it's mostly luck. For some reason i always win at Monopoly. No one, not even me, knows why.
And there's plenty of room at that lake ;-)

Karen Denise said...

You're welcome! And great list. You can't go wrong with visual aids!
