Award Season...

Howdy Humble Readers!

Well, I missed most of the Oscars last night, but that's okay, because I didn't get to see many of the movies beforehand.  So much for that on my to do list for this year. 

Buuuuuutttt... just because the award season is wrapping up now doesn't mean that there aren't still awards to be announced!

Last week, Soo See over at HolyMoly Toledo(s)  honoured me with Happy 101 award... Thank you so much Soo See!

When you receive the Happy 101 Award, you have to list 10 things that make your day and then list 10 blogs worthy of this award. Post a link to the blogs you nominate, and make sure you let them know that they have been nominated!

I thought, for this round of bloggy love, I would honour some people who have recently honoured me by becoming honourary hobbits (that would be new followers).  Thank you guys for reading, commenting, and joining me on this journey.  I'm still getting to know many of these ladies, but they all totally rock!

So now onto the things that make my day...
  1. Cooking... I know, if you stop by regularly, you are VERY aware of my passion for good food.  I love trying to replicate new tastes, and trying new recipes.  I love love LOVE that my Beloved isn't a picky eater and that he is patient with my experiments. 
  2. Reading... Since I was just a wee hobbit I have been addicted to books.  I adore getting lost in a great story.
  3. The ring tone on my cell phone that indicates I've gotten an email (often comment notifications).  I'm that much of a geek, that I get a thrill knowing that someone has read what I have written and has taken the time to comment on it. 
  4. Green tea lemonade... Venti, extremely light ice.  Yum!
  5. When my Beloved comes home for lunch... at least half the week I work in the afternoon/evening so I don't get to see my Beloved, so he comes home for lunch so that we get some time together every day.
  6. Stolen time... when I am able to sneak in moments for myself.  To read, to veg, to pamper myself with a home facial.
  7. A new do... something I am in desparate need of.  I honestly don't have a great opinion of my physical appearance, but the look on my Beloved's face when I come home with a new cut and colour... that makes me feel great!
  8. Ik.ea... I just recently got a new catalog from them and have spent a fair bit of time day dreaming about how I would love to decorate our hobbit-hole.  It's a good thing that we don't have one of those stores in our little city, because I would be there all the time.
  9. The combination of sweet and savoury... specifically m&m peanuts mixed in with hot buttered popcorn.  It makes going to the movies expensive, but man it's good!
  10. My mp3 player... it makes the hours at work before and after we are open for business


  1. I am the exact same way with #3.

  2. Mrs. G - I totally heart you! :)

  3. It's amazing how many things we have in common. OMG I have never tried #9 but that sounds delicious. I love both of those!!
    Sounds like you and your Dh have a wonderful relationship!
    take care :)

  4. #9 will be tested out when I go see Alice - whenever that is. I've planned for 2 different days, and then something 'business' comes up. And Woot! for new do's!

  5. I'm so excited!! Thanks for awarding me...I'm off to write today's blog then..don't know how to pass it on, but sure happy to fill out 10 things that make my day! :D


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
