I'm on a winning streak!

My super sweet blogging buddy, Dawn, gave me this really cute award. (Don't you just love her new layout???) Now, here's the deal. I have to name six things that make me happy and then pass the award along. Here goes...

The men in my home make me unbelievably happy. There are no people I would rather laugh with, learn from or grow old with. And, I truly consider myself blessed to be a part of this family! ( is Neil's birthday!)

Without a doubt, my favorite place to be is the beach! In particular I love the Gulf, as we can be there in less than 6 hours, it has gorgeous soft sand and it's as warm as a bath all summer.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I really love getting a bargain. It's amazing even to me, some of the great things I have found for just pennies. And, for the record, I do think that sign tells the greatest bargain ever!!

Ghirardelli Chocolate...need I say more?!?

If I need a "break", 99% of the time I get on the computer. I love to search for completely irrelevant stuff and feel like I have learned a ton since Al Gore invented the internet. (Sorry...we like to joke about that a lot.) Not to mention, this blog. I've had so much fun writing, posting pics and making friends!

I love to be outside, but I never imagined that I would enjoy gardening as much as I do. I am definitely still learning, but so far, all of my flowers have brought me such joy. This is a pic of a couple blooms off my dahlia. It is just full this year!

I have many, many more things that make me happy, including: my cats, my faith, any type of pampering, a perfectly chilled glass of wine, Fall weather, Patricia Sprinkle books...I could go on and on.

Lastly, I believe that anyone putting time into a blog deserves an award. Therefore, consider yourself "awarded". I can't wait to see what makes YOU happy!

Thank you Dina for the kudos!

Happy Birthday Neil! Hope your day is extra special!

Your list was great! I love bargains too! I've gotten to where I don't like to pull full price for anything.
