Some Awarded Bliss

Wow! I am usually a gal of many words, but WOW is all i've got!~ Making me speechless is rather hard to do...

Two lovely bloggy friends bestowed upon me some awards last weekend. I know, awards eh?? Pretty sweet--Everyone loves knowing that something they do makes others happy, and well, today i feel pretty honoured. But i first have a little work ahead of me, to accept these awards...

The first award is the 'Sunshine Award' from Rabea at EllaBellaMozzarella. Kind of ironic- while she gave me this award for my blog 'brightening' her day, i should turn around and give it right back to her! I mean, who can't be happy when reading a blog called EllaBellaMozzarella?? Just sounds like too much fun!

The rules are as follows:
~Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
~Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
~Link the nominees within your post.
~Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
~Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

Here is my list of 12 blogs that brighten my day, each and every time i visit! (In no particular order)

1. Nancy @ Away We Go
2. Holly @ Why Mom Drinks Rum
3. Jodi @ The Bee Hive
4. Michele @ Finding Trinity
5. JennyMac @ Let's Have A Cocktail
6. Matty @ Matty Thoughts
7. Joanna @ The Fifty Factor
8. Miss Grace @ Miss Grace's Disgrace
9. The Girl with Flour in her Hair @ Peeling An Orange With A Screwdriver
10. Braden @ Songs & Cigarettes
11. the Confessor @ Confessions of a Homeschooler
12. Helen @ Feeding Five For Fifty
**13. Special Nod to Unknown Mami (i know you probably have a zillion awards already!)

The second award i received is called the "Happy 101 Award".

To accept the "Happy 101 Award", I need to:
~acknowledge the person who gave it to me - Audrey @ Audrey's Country Crafts
~list 10 items that make me happy
~award it to 10 other bloggers

Here are my 10 Happy Things (in no particular order):
1. The Feeling of Sunshine on My Face
