Happy, that's easy!

Another award! Woofta! I am feeling blessed by all these fun awards I have been receiving.Thanks to Lauren - she is allowing me to simply list 10 things that make me HAPPY! That is easy enough!
  1. My handsome husband Joshua
  2. Bubble Baths
  3. Watching The Amazing Race
  4. Chai Tea (with soy milk)
  5. Getting pedicures
  6. Learning new things
  7. Photography (everything about it!)
  8. Cuddling
  9. Taking walks in the fall weather
  10. Eating new crock pot creations (hoping our meal tonight is delish!!)

I did not feel very happy this morning though... and this has helped brighten up my day! Trying to "keep my chin up, buttercup" as one reader commented. The construction guy came over this morning to remove the fans from our living room. (If you are new here, see this post) PRAISE THE LORD! They were driving me crazy. He basically said the insurance assessor guy will be back on Monday, but he thinks they'll just put new pads under our carpet - stretch it out and put it back to normal. I am feeling slightly frustrated!! I honestly just think that there should be something out of this for US!??? Is that so wrong? At least - I think they need to be very well cleaned! Ha, I am just trying to be honest here :) I will keep you all posted.

Regardless, I am just wanting our home to be back to normal. It has been real frustrating to have our couches smashed together in the corner and everything in disarray. I just want our home to be "happy" again!

Here are some happy friends, that I choose to give this blog award to (rules say to pick 10 blogs that brighten your day!)

ReJOYce, A Love Worth Waiting For, A Needle in the Haystack, Beholding the Beloved, EmilyMarks, Kreated by Kelsey, Learning to be a Wife, Life as Lindsay May, Newly married and abroad, Prior Fat Girl,

I hope your day is brighter, today friends. Have a blessed weekend! We don't have too many plans. Movie tonight - Seeing my NEWLY married friends tomorrow - Football game on Sunday.

Go Vikings!

Congratulations on your award!! Sorry to hear about the carpet plans... I still think you should get new flooring out of it! But I do hope you get your house back to normal soon!

Ok, our homes are our refuge. When that gets "messed with" I think our psyche can't so much as handle it! Your ten things are wonderful.

Emily Marks said...

Congrats on your award & thank you SO MUCH for passing it on! You totally made my day!

P.S., I got a new crockpot for christmas, we should swap recipes! (ok, I really don't have recipes, I just add random ingredients and pray!)
