Oh Happy Day!

*Update* I totally forgot to pass this award along to the fabulous Kirstren over at Lady Kirstren. How could I forget her?!?! She's my cousin, a new blogger and just all around AWESOME!

Today, I despite everything at work crumbling around me (and that I'm being stubborn and ignoring the sweltering heat. I refuse to put in my A/C until at least May 1) - I choose to be happy. And here is why...

The awesome Tiney gave me an award today! She totally made my day!! Thank you, Tiney! There are rules that go with it, and while I will post the rules below... be forewarned, I opt not to follow them. Heeheehee

Rules are as follows:

  • Accept the award
  • Post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
  • Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered.
  • Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Not all of these folks are "new" to me.

My first awardee is Jill at Jill's Believe It or Not. Tiney, I cheated and stole your sister! Jill is hysterically funny, I read her blog religiously and will occasionally go back and look at old posts for their puppy pictures.

Next is Sara at Unwrap Life. She is most definitely not new to me; in fact this is the second award I'm giving her. She writes AWESOME posts!

I just discovered Hallie at Wonderful World of Weiners when she decided to follow my blog. See folks?!?! I pay attention! She is cute, and I can't wait to see what she and her dachshund do next.

We also have the super cute JLC at French Kiss. What can I say? She's adorable and I envy the her enthusiasm in all she does!

Then there is Kaitlin at Life of a Busy Wife. She truly is one busy wife and just her adorable Puggle alone keeps me coming back for more!

Jane at Moonflowers, Mojitos and Me is new to me. I already enjoy what she has to say and bet it keeps getting better.

D.A.R at Just Another Day in Paradise is amazing. She seems to get handle everything thrown at her - school, running, her dogs and her hubby's deployment with such ease.

Kathryn at Ritch in Love is very cool. Not only is she an amazing flight attendant - she's going to get published in Redbook this month!

Lastly, I have Casey at The Ever-Changing Life of a Military Wife. She was the very first person to give me an award and she definitely deserves this award. Feel better, missy! A whole lot of us are living vicariously through your travel pictures. :-)

I think I'm a pillow snob! I've come across purse snobs, shoe snobs, car snobs... but I think I might be the first pillow snob. A few years ago I was doing a little shopping in Home Goods (FREAKING LOVE THAT STORE!) and decided to upgrade my standard feather pillows for king sized down pillows (What?!?! If you're going upgrade - upgrade). Since that initial purchase, I've upgraded ALL my pillows (all six of them; my pillow addition to be discussed on a later post...maybe). My last hold out of old pillows met the trash can yesterday - and because I'm so picky, I've hit 2 Home Goods, 1 Marshalls and 2 TJ Maxx stores (they are all owned by the same company) in the past week to find my coveted pillow. Today after work, I claimed VICTORY! I have my king sized down pillow with gusseted sides from Hotel Collection and I can sleep happy. :-)

Another happy revelation of the day is a little silly... Grey's Anatomy has partnered with theknot.com and created a wedding web page for Derek Shepherd & Meredith Grey. It is so cute; you have to check it out!

    B. I can't wait to go to a Home Goods. It sounds so fun!
