Happy 101 Award!!


Jenni from She Can't Decide gave me the sweetest award! This award is for all the ladies in the blogging community that bring a smile to your face. I am so honored that Jenni would think of me!!! So...along with this award I am to list 10 things that make me HAPPY and pass the award on to 10 ladies that make me smile!!

It was hard to only limit myself to 10 things but these were the first 10 things I thought of!!

1. Coffee!! I am so NOT a morning person. Anyone that has been around me in the morning will tell you so. It is a bad trait of mine that I would love to fix but I really don't seem to wake up until around 11am or later. COFFEE is the one thing that I actually look forward to in the morning. I love the sound of the coffee pot and ohhh the smell!! Yum!


2. Photobooths! I wish there were more in KC. There are only two that I know of right now (inside Streetcar Named Desire at Crown Center and inside The Record Bar). If you know of anymore in the KC area please let me know. My favorite photobooth is located inside the City Museum in St. Louis. It prints out the best pictures and only works half the time but it is so charming.

I love squeezing onto that little seat and trying to come up with quick poses. And I love waiting for them to print out!!

3. My Poot!! I don't know where I would be right now without him in my life. I never knew I could love someone as much as I love him. I love his quirkiness, his laughter, his smile, and his sense of humor! And he is soooo handsome too!
Who knew that I would marry the kid that sat by me in 6th grade Spanish class. He likes to tell me that I looked like a gelfing from The Dark Crystal. I guess I will take that as a compliment.



4. Yarn!! I have recently become even more obsessed with yarn!! Maybe it is the cold weather but I always am jonesing to work on a yarn project! I just bought the yarn I am going to use for the family reunion afghan. I am going to have a hard time letting that go in the auction!!I also bought some yarn (Joann's is having a big sale on yarn!!) to crochet some hats!


5. Our amazing group of friends. They are honestly like family to me! I love each and every one of them! We are such a close group and I am very thankful for that. It doesn't matter what we are doing we always have a blast!




6. Baby animals...any kind really! How can they not make you smile or put you in a good mood. They are too darn cute.



7. A clean house! It is such a good feeling to have everything in its place and is always ideal but doesn't happen too often around Poot Manor. Poot reminds me that while I am crafting I don't need to worry about the mess I am making. That is somethig I am working on and am honestly getting better with. I did make a list of things to "clean out" for January and I have already marked our pantry off the list. It was a little scary to find some of the expired things that I did but now I can see everythig we have!

8.New Shoes!! Honestly right now they are the only thing I enjoy shopping for. They don't make me feel bad unless they are uncomfortable! I bought the most perfect pair of black boots this past weekend. I need to get a picture of them soon. I have been daydreaming about them for awhile and found them...on sale too!! I don't think you can ever have too many pairs of shoes! Do you agree?


9. PANDORA!! This website has saved my sanity most days of the week. I don't know how I would make it through a work day without my music. Plus... I have found so many new artist that I just love! If I met the creators of this site I would give them the biggest hug!! What are some of your favorite Pandora stations? I have been listening to Pete Yorn, Joshua Radin, and Coconut Records lately.

10. My Lomo app on my iphone. This app is so worth the $4.99 I paid!! I can not believe the photos it can take. Here a few I snapped on our recent triip to East Texas with the Lomo app.





*I have so many pictures to still show from that trip!
