Happy 101

I am such a lucky girl
as I have received an award
from my darling Simone
she is my sister from another mother...

silly me
I thought the 1st awards of the year
were the People's Choice Awards!

Shall I pick out a dress?

Val said she would lend me this one
and she knows I love red!

now for some shoes
hmmmdo you think these will work?

or maybe these...
yes ~ I think these will work
loving the bling!


so along with receiving this award
I must share with you
10 things that make me happy

I had a hard time whittling
the list down to 10
but here we go!


I cannot tell you how much I love to read and
will read just about anything recommended to me
as long as it is good.

I cannot imagine a day without it. My mp3 player
is with me all the time and I love getting out
the vinyl and reminiscing.

Although I do not get a chance to dance much
anymore ~ you can sometimes find me in my
living room rocking out to an old favorite.

What woman does not love chocolate!
I am a milk girl ~ creamy and good.

Good Sheets
I am a sheet snob.
They have to be cotton ~ and feel like butter.

My Furry Kids
I have said before that I do not just love this
little dog ~ I am in love with her.

This furry beast is all boy ~ smart like dumptruck
but I love him to death.

The first thing I reach for in the morning
it is like oxygen in a mug for me.

I have acquired a sweet tooth
and although red velvet is one of my favorites
I am not fussy when it comes to any other kind.

Our Cottage
My little piece of heaven
my do nothing place

Connecting with People
Long distance calls, a card or letter,
an email, a hug
or comments on my blog
I need people ~ guess I am a people person
and I treasure my friendships.

So there is my list
I hope you enjoyed reading it
as I had so much fun putting it together!

I will pass it along to:

Carol at Songberries
Jackie at Home
Cathi at Everyday Adventures of a Curious Gal
Jan at Bobbypins Boardwalk
& last but certainly not least
Becky at Farmgirl Paints

Happy Monday!

Congrats! I do think that you need a bit shorter dress to show off those dazzling shoes. Such a hard choice to make between the two though! LOVE those black ones!

Hi Sweetie thanks for the award. YOU make me happy:) I about fell off my chair when I saw the picture of your red velvet cupcake. I might have to steal that one for my list! Happy day to you Lori.

Cathi said...

Thanks, Lori for the award..! Just as Simone's is so close to my list - so is yours....beautiful photos and list, Lori! I love them all...will get working on my list, but first I must scoot off to work....(not looking forward to it, am still tired from all the festivities!) Have a great day! xxoo

I loved reading this Lori, you made me smile :)

Can you believe I have never had a red velvet cupcake?! I don't think you can get them here at all. Please add them to my list of things I would like to eat when I come to's a long list I know :)

Dear Lori,
Congrats on your award and many thanks for passing the honour onto me. Everyone is so ahead of the game that they are naming all of the things that make me happy too !! I will get onto it right away. I love your 10 things. Your cat reminds me of Robert de Niro's cat in 'Meet the Parents'.... and chocolate, Oh chocolate. I'm still wading my way through the Christmas stash. Well, I'd better go and have a think about my 10 things. XXXX

Can we see more of your Cottage please! I want one too!

Hi Lori! Our lists would be very similar! I love all of those things too! I LOVE to dance! although I'm not very good... I LOVE coffee but you know that! The only thing I would add is shells and the beach. I even love the smell of bookstores! I love books too and don't put enough time into reading.

I'm so happy to see a picture of you! I feel like i'm finally meeting you!
