Paying It Forward!!!

It's been a while since anyone has given me an award. But, my new friend Mandy just bestowed not one, but two, super sweet awards on me! Thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU, Mandy!!!! Let's see --Let me get these rules right -- ya'll know I'm a rule follower!

The first is the Beautiful Blogger Award and here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award
2. Copy the award and place it on your blog
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award
4. Tell us 7 interesting things about yourself
5. Nominate 7 bloggers
6. Post links to the 7 blogs I nominate

SO ---- 7 interesting things about me......I'll do my best.

1. I love to eat Tuna Fish Gravy. I've mentioned this before but there are some new folks out there who will be sufficiently grossed out. ;)
2. I love sticky notes, pens, pencils, paper -- Especially pretty ones from stationary places!
3. I'm drawn to polka dots and animal prints.
4. I love music and took piano lessons for 6 years. I also played the alto saxophone in high school. How many instruments can I play now? None. Sad but true.
5. I wish I could learn to play the fiddle.
6. I LOVE to watch crime shows....especially NCIS. It's my favorite. I like CSI, too. I sometimes watch Criminal Minds -- but truth be told -- it creeps me out. I also like Lost and House a whole lot! No doubt I watch too much tv.
7. I long for a simpler life. Something about the way the Amish people live seems wonderful to me.

Here are the rules of the second award {which looks totally yummy!}
1. Copy the award image into a post
2. List 10 things that make you happy
3. Tag 10 bloggers who brighten your day
4. Put a link to their blogs
5. Notify the award receivers
6. Recipients should link back to the sender's blog {this is totally optional!}

And NOW ---- 10 things that make me happy -----

1. My Kids and Hubby

2. Polka Dots and Plaid

3. Sour candy. I don't eat much candy but I heart sour candy and this is what I want when I eat candy.

4. Dark Chocolate with nuts in it please.

5. Dates with hubby

6. Trips -- I love to travel -- though I don't get to do much of it.

7. Relaxing, Hot Baths

8. Warm PJ's

9. Coffee with God in the mornings
