Monday Miscellany

I hope you've had fun with the Blog Anniversary Party! The giveaways are still open, so it's not too late to enter if you haven't already. I'd like to take a moment to thank the sponsors of the giveaways: Fairytale Brownies, Andrews McMeel, Uniroyal, and Stouffer's. The Blog Anniversary Party would not have been possible without them.  And thanks to all of you who stopped by to visit during the week:  it would have been a pretty dull party if I was here all alone!

During the Party week, I saved up some ideas that I'll be posting over the next week or two. I have a few recipes, a few promotions, and a few other things to share with you. I've also been doing some reading, so I'll have some book reviews coming up.

Yesterday my bloggy friend Kerri surprised me with this:

Happy 101 award

You can find Kerri blogging at Kerri's Klutter, where she writes about life, family, and just about everything else.  She's a bit edgy, a lot funny, and always authentic.  We "met" fairly recently, but she's become a good bloggy buddy.
Here are the rules of the award:

1. copy and paste the award on your blog.

2. list who gave the award to you and use a link to her/his blog (or hyperlink).

3. list 10 things that make you happy.

4. pass the award on to other bloggers and visit their blog to let them know about the award.
I've made lists like this before, so consider this list supplemental. :)

Ten Things That Make Me Happy
  1. Hugs from my family and friends
  2. Blue skies
  3. Cupcakes
  4. Bright yellow flowers
  5. Time to read
  6. Praise and worship music
  7. Time to write
  8. Sleep
  9. Wordplay
  10. Making someone smile
I'd like to pass this award along to a few bloggers who are relatively new to me:
  1. Tammy at Not Just Paper and Glue
  2. Melinda at Frugal Grace
  3. Mama E at Home and Hearts
  4. Carrie at Reading to Know
  5. Jules at With Love
Enjoy your Monday!
