I'd like to begin by thanking my children for making all of this possible. Without them, there'd be no stench, and without the stench, well, there would be no blog.
Secondly, I'd like to publically thank my dear husband, for allowing me time to hide and blog. In him, I have a kindred spirit who, too, realizes this is cheaper than a psychiatrist, or retail therapy, for that matter.
And last, but not least, props go to The Accidental Mommy for presenting me with this award. In fact, I stole the answer to number three from her. Except that I am apparently more needy than she is, so I just lumped it into all one category. Validation. Yes, I need validation, people. I also stole the next paragraph directly from her. See how smart she is? You should definitely check her out if somehow you found me before her.
Now for the fine print. The Happy 101 Blog Award Rules are as follows: List 10 things that make you happy, try to do at least one of them today, and tag 10 bloggers that brighten your day. For those 10 bloggers who get the award, you then link back to my blog and create your list of things that make you happy.
1. Any new (or thrift store!) item of clothing, on sale 2. Online shopping 3. Validation (Love blogging comments and awards!) 4. A clean house 5. Photography 6. Knitting/Crocheting 7. Chocolate 8. Cooking 9. Family (when they're not infringing on one of the other 9 "happinesses") 10. Heaven
Now, if you've been here long you know how terribly non-conformist I am. So I don't know if I'll get around to tagging ten. Let's see.
