... As a Clam!

George Sand says: “There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.”

Sara says: "Man, do I feel loved by my fabulous blog friends!"

Ralph Waldo Emmerson says: “Nothing can bring you happiness but yourself.”

Sara says: "Uh, yeah... and blog friends!"

Herman Cain says: “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”

Sara says: "I got nothin' to add to this one. It's so true... Oh, and on top of it I love my blog friends ♥"

In case you couldn't tell from the quotes, and from the award that's been circulating...uh, and the image above... I've been awared the Happy Award! From some really, really fabulous people... So first and foremost, I want to give a huge thank you to HeatherJulieFrankie, Southern Princess, Diana, and VR Barkowski!!

First, here are 10 things that make me happy!

1. This prank call video

Tom Mabe: Eavesdropping

2. When motivation throws itself into my fingers and I have to write.

3. Winter boots. Can not get enough!! Seriously. My friends tease me, but I almost need an entire closet to hold all that I own. The only thing I don't like about warm weather? Not being able to wear BOOTS.

4. My kitties, Piper and Lilah... For pictures of the cutest things on Earth, click here and scroll down to #2!

5. Warm weather... and the beach. (Which is wonderful because I'm going to MIAMI for a week at the end of the month/beginning of February! Oh yeah, check out the 10 day forecast baby!)

6. My family, duh

7. Everyone who's donated to the cause for Haiti. And everyone who does so now.

8. No words necessary.

9. The package I received from Shannon!! (It actually made me squee. The first and only time I will ever do so.)

10. Crossing the last thing off on my to-do list... Which has happened only about four times in my entire life!

And now, I pass this award on to 10 blogs that make ME happy!

1-3 go to my fabulous crit partners... you already know they make my world go round!
 Alexandra, at The publication follies of Miss Alexandra Shostak
 Carol, at Carol's Prints
 Shannon, at Ramblings of a Wannabe Scribe

4. Angie Kate, at Always Write because I crack up every time I read the last sentence of her "About the Author" section.

5. Anissa, at Anissa off the Record because she's really funny!

6. Dennie, at Fledgling Author because she's just starting to blog and I'm enjoying reading about her process along the way!

7. Hilary Wagner because she's awesome in general. Plus she's super friendly and always informative!!

8. Natalie Brahm because she writes kickass kiss scenes gone awry, and she's sweet to boot!

9. Heather, at See Heather Write because she's really cool AND posting summaries of what she learns at the writing workshop she's attending all this week! (And I know you gave it to me, and have already received it, but you were already on my list of 10 and I really wanted to give it to you!)

10. Tere Kirkland, at The Lesser Key because she shares these wickedly informative things with her followers!

And, if you know me at all by now, you know the blogs I link to are always great--so make sure to check all these out. You'll miss out if you don't!

  1. Those videos were hilarious!! Thank you for a good laugh this morning! :)

  2. I just adore you. I do. For realz. You're the best. I'm a total boots person, too. We were meant to be sisters. I'm certain of this.

    And that prank video? OMG, chickie...that was so hilarious. Oh my word, too much fun with a phone.

    Thank you for the award, hon! And I'm not surprised so many people passed it on to you. You make everybody happy. Most especially me.

  3. #8... I'm a dog person, but I loved this.

  4. Awwwww thank you! You make me happy!

    Haha, and I've been wearing my winter boots every day. I'll probably wear them until April, when I will immediately switch to flip-flops (my favorite kind of shoe).

    lol and who doesn't love videos of cats being funny? :-P

  5. Congrats on the Happy 101 award. My brain hurts today, so that's all I can post for now. ta ta

  6. Congrats! The award couldn't go to a nicer person :)

    Sadly, I couldn't watch the video as I'm on dial-up. Let's not go there :(

  7. Love the videos :) Also love crossing the last thing off the list - unfortunately it doesn't happen very often.

  8. Aw, thanks Sara. You really are the best. I know I keep telling you that, but I can't seem to say it enough. I promise I will accept and post this award soon.

    Hope you're feeling better--and sorry for such a late comment. :)


Yay! I love when you have things to add :)
