Random Questions

So I was reading my friend Lindsay's blog over at Artsy Fartsy Mama, and noticed that my name appeared in her post. Going back and reading instead of skimming (sorry I skimmed Linds!) I noticed that she was passing on an award of sorts to me. I guess you can call it an award, I call it a chance to post random things about myself! Never one to miss an opportunity such as this, here I go, diving right in!

10 Things That Make Me Happy

1. My husband. He gets me, he makes me laugh when I don't feel like laughing. He stands up for me during family drama when I'm the scape goat, and he buys me Diet Coke. He is wonderful, funny, giving, tender, and a whole other list of things. All of which make me happy. (even if he does leave his socks on the couch...)

2. Quilting. I love it. I'm addicted. I see patterns in everything and one of my joys in life is to come home and play with my quilting program and fondle fabric. Quilts, and anything else that I can sew makes me happy. (so long as that sewing does not require being fit around a person!)

3. Re-Runs. Okay I admit it. I love re-runs. I am addicted to Friends (can quote literally every episode), love Bones, and can barely keep up with Gilmore Girls...and I watch a few other religiously. I have the DVDs and go through a rotation. When nothing good is on TV (which happens a LOT!) I pop in a DVD and am good to go.

4. Cooking. I love food, and I love finding new ways to prepare it. My body loves food too and hangs onto it for dear life...but sometimes that's just how it has to be.

5. My friends. I don't just have friends, I have life long, hold on for dear life, will help you bury a body friendships. I don't have in between's. I have acquaintances, and I have the aforementioned friends. Anything in between is a waste of my time. And they make me happy. 'Nuff said.

6. Diet Coke. That bubbly fizzy ice-cuby goodness!

7. Blogging (and all of you!) I have recently discovered how much I love blogging and getting to know so many new fun people!

8. Reading. The lore of a good book continually sucks me in. Sometimes to the point that I forget to feed my family! They come haunting me asking me what's for dinner. To which I usually set out a can of spaghetti-o's and return to the book!

9. December. OKay I admit it. I'm a sucker for the month of December. My birthday, hubby's birthday, Christmas, (and two weeks after Christmas my anniversary,) all fall into this category. I love snow, Christmas music, sparkly lights (okay that's not specific to just December...) all of it...Love it Man...

10. When I see new followers on my blog. I do the happy dance. Literally. It's not pretty. Good thing ya'll can't see said dance or I'd lose followers.

And now I get to pass this on to a few special bloggers.
