Like the sun coming through the clouds...

Mrs. K, one of my favorite Florida/ tennis nut/ funny Gal bloggers gave me an award to share with my sister the Frau, (we're use to sharing) I am grateful to her because it's nice to be awarded and because I now have a Monday post!

I am always nervous giving awards as I am afraid to leave anyone out... I have so many favorite bloggers! Mrs. K had many of them on her list, so I won't repeat them here. Although you can check them out over at Mrs. K's place,
So, be aware that sometime in the near future I will name more names in regard to fav blogs, if you weren't on this list we will see you on the next!

The Rules:
1. List 10 things that make you happy. (and grateful)
2. Top 10 bloggers that brighten your day. (like the sun coming thru the clouds)

10 Things That Make Me Happy:

1. Healthy and happy husband
2. Healthy and happy children ( although my lacrosse girl just tore her ACL)
3. Long, great paddle matches that my partner and I win.
4. Skiing on a bright, blue sky day, ending with an amazing tailgate with my sisters and their families.
5. Long Beach Island for two weeks with my sisters, parents and our families.
6. Brunch in NYC complete with Bloody Marys, after walking 5th avenue at Christmas time.
7. All my children under one roof.
8. a good book, by the fire, with a glass of wine, music playing softly in the background.
9. A week in Paris indulging in museums, food, wine, and people watching!
10. Watching my children play sports and being proud of their sportsmanship
more than their success playing the sport.

10 Bloggers That Make Me Smile:

1. Joyce's blog NEVER fails to inspire me :

2. MOTR's blog is well written and we have so much in common :

3. Ina is one of my first blog friends, we have even met. Amazing when you realize that she lives in Alaska. :

4. Susan is a new blog friend, but I think we have a lot in common-including five children! :

5.Toad provides the male perspective in a very tasteful and refined way. He was gone for a bit and is now back to blogging, thank goodness! :

6.Somer is our girl! She is tireless in her fundraising for CF and she is truly inspiring. :

7. Meg's blog neverr ceases to educate me, be it design,history or cool places in Baltimore! :

8.Pink Martini is very talented AND thoughtful. Patient too. (she has been waiting forever for an order from me!) :

9.Laura is a treasure hunter. She finds the best stuff and shares! Plus she is a Jersey shore girl, not to be confused with that new Bravo show :)

10.OHN is another terrific, humourous blogger that I can relate to AND I have also met- again amazing as she lives in the midwest! :

Please click on the links and visit my friends and tell them I sent you!


Toad said...

Thank you for the nod. We share many favorite bloggers. Keep on blogging.

OHN said...

Aww shucks. Thanks! I will have to do this in awhile, when I can slow may brain down enough to relax. (work is making me crazier than usual!)

Frau said...

lots of happy things i like them all.

Pink Martini said...

Thanks P2! :) I can relate to your list and I think I'll add the hope of Paris to mine! You're a peach!

Suzy said...

I just found out you and Frau were sisters. How can you talk behind each other's back, which is the hallmark of sisters?

Susan said...

What a lovely compliment. Thank you! I think awards should be given out to anyone who is brave enough to have 5 children don't you? Luckily I have 5 Great Kiddos.

Joyce said...

Thank you Prep- I'm honored!! I love your list too. Many hugs... xo

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Awwwww....thank you! And thank you for clarifying that I am not, nor will ever be, connected with that TV show. ;-) Though it sure does make me laugh...

Mom on the Run said...

Thanks so much. I promise I will get to it and pass it on....soon. Just having all sorts of "omg, I haven't even thought about shopping and everything I want is sold out online!" moments this week.

Our Girl?... I am SO honored! Thank you! Xo
