Happy 101 award

What a treat for me to have received a Happy 101 award twice. One from fellow blogger, Erica, at . Her blog has become a daily stop for me...visit her's full of inspiration in a variety of ways! And, from , another blog filled with fabulousness!  
The award "rules" are that I should list ten things that make me happy and list ten blogs I enjoy. I find it a challenge to list either!  Many things make me happy (like getting this award) and picking only ten blogs is hard for me (I'm a gal who did not have bridesmaids because I could not pick just a few of my amazing friends.) However, since those are the rules here it goes:

Hamptontoes top 10 happiness list:
(1) My family; being married to my husband and squeezing in date nights with him, hearing my children laugh that gut-belly laugh and seeing them smile; as well as time spent with my extended family. 
(2) My amazing friends who enrich my life. I'd go to the moon for them.
(3) I'm grateful to enjoy life with good health. 
(4) Being physically active; running, biking, snowboarding, wakeboarding, swimming, yoga.
(5) Interior design/decoration.
(6) Cooking homemade meals. 
(7) Gardening and landscaping, love getting my hands into the earth.
(8) In the summer, showering outdoors and looking up at the sky.
(9) Getting massages.
10) And, finally my newest form of happiness is blogging. I truly enjoying connecting with others who enjoy the fun escape blogging provides. And, I love being inspired by the many talented bloggers who share their knowledge, information, skills, experiences and thoughts with us.

 I will follow Erica's lead and leave out her blog and Casabelladecor's since they nominated me, but of course I love their blogs and have them on my list of blogs I enjoy reading! Ten blogs I love and all for various are your Happy 101 awards fellow bloggers!

Happy Monday to all my blogging friends!

Lisa, I found your blog by way of the comment you left about tables in living rooms on Janell's guest blog at Brooklyn Limestone. I am so glad I came over -- I love what you've got here, and your yard is too gorgeous for words! It's great when you find a new blog that just speaks to you. From your archive list, it looks like you just started this blog this year. Congratulations, and looking forward to reading more.
