10 Things That Make Me Happy...

I received the Happy 101 Blogger Award from Aphrodite , and Jordy and have been a terrible blogger and not had time to sit down and actually write about the ten things that make me happy. Part of this is because I wanted to answer them the best I could and not half ass it, so as today is my day off I had a chance to finally sit down and write....


1. My lovely boyfriend Jeff "Wolfgang" Schmidt. He is my everything. He cheers me up when I am down, calms me down when I am upset, makes me laugh, cooks me dinners, walks me down to the car every morning before work and is my personal photographer.

2. Family. My parents and sisters are my best friends. I have just as much fun with them as I do with anyone else if not more so. They keep me grounded and, although they don't live very close, would be by my side in an instant if I needed them.

3. Puppies. I am obsessed with dogs, pictures, videos, real life, I'll take anything I can get. Unfortunately I can't have one in my current apartment. So I just fawn over other people's

4. My baby blanket.

5. Hiking- it clears my head.

6.Vintage Shopping-I don't really think I have to explain this one!

7. Pesto

8. Random adventures.

9. Crime Dramas. I don't know where my enjoyment of these shows stems from but I could watch them for hours on end and not get bored. I'm not even picky, sure I have my favorites (Law & Order SVU and C.S.I are probably my top choices) but I will watch any of them.

10. Blogging. You are all so inspirational, and it makes my day reading your comments and personal posts. It's crazy that this weird little nitch we are in has blossomed into something so welcoming, nurturing, and inspirational. It blows my mind that each of you take time out of your day,s even if it's just a minute, to look at my little blog. I have met so many friends that I would have never had contact with if it weren't for this blog. Thank you all so much!!!

Now it is my turn to pass it to 10 of you...

And here are a couple of pictures from today. The weather was crap yet again, it was particlarly windy, so I was forced to take pictures on my balcony where I was parcialy sheilded. Please look past my crazy hair and lack of photo quality. These pictures are really about the vest, I got it yesterday and just adore it. It's going to be perfect for the summer time. I can picture myself throwing it on before a day at the beach and enjoying the sunshine...

Hey! Nice to read your top 10's. Wolfgang? Any dude named Wolfgang has GOT to rock. I need, need to check his blog out asap.

What a treat to see my name in your list. Thank you for the honor!

Now on to your outfit. Vest is cool, but you seem to make everything rockin', girl. It's how you style things that make the whole thing work. I like the shorts and the tights and the rip somehow adds sooo much charm. Shows you're not taking things to serious, which brings me to that vest. FUN. Goofy and fun. I'm sure we'll see it again this summer on your blog.

Cheers!

I loved reading your "ten things." It's interesting and endearing to know these things about one of my favorite chictopians.

I'd never have guessed that you're a hiker though haha. And we share the fascination and enjoyment of watching crime dramas. I don't really why I like them so much myself. I even bought this 6-dvd CSI box thing haha
