Lovely miss Kle from the great blog accidentally, kle has awarded me with my very first blog award. I feel so honored! Thanks so much Kle!

I just did a bit of a Google search on this award and found different requirements all over. But many Bloggers mention having to list a number of things that make them happy. And hey, I'm all for the lists.

7 Things that make me happy in no particular order:

1. Fresh flowers. They brighten up a room and make a perfect gift.
2. Dresses. I have many many dresses. You could say I have too many dresses. I love dresses. Wearing dresses makes me happy.
3. Dipping cookies (preferably homemade of course) in my tea.
4. Music. I'm a music freak. MrBee used to work in a record store, has a degree in audio engineering, likes to DJ and has about 4000 CDs. So I don't really have a choice... We go to concerts and festivals and we love browsing through CDs and vinyl at stores and fleamarkets together. Yes, I STILL BUY CDs.
5. Food & Wine & Friends. Hands down best combo in the world.
6. Doing the MC Hammer dance. I'm serious. If you ever feel down, put on the CD (OK, I confess I have the MC Hammer Greatest Hits CD but I swear it was the result of a bet and I only ever play the first two tracks!) and dance and you'll feel better instantly!
7. Board and card games. Yes I am a nerd. A highly competitive nerd that is.

Also, I would like to pass this award on to a couple of my favorite bloggers. I'm pretty sure they all must've had an award or two before, but I can't help it, they are my faves.
7 Blogs I love:

- Rachel at Heart of Light writes one of my favorite blogs. She's crafty, she shares great recipes AND she takes beautiful pictures.
- Melanie at You Are My Fave is funny, has six sisters and posts oh so many lovely things.
- Olivia at Everyday Musings has a very witty style and works in a cup cake bakery.
- Helen at The Museum Cupboard is original and sweet.
- Meg is amazing and writes an honest blog that I love. And I LOVE the picture of her mom in the header.
- My dear friend Megan at Saverqueen writes a blog on frugality. She's incredibly smart and her posts are always very insightful.
- Layers of Meaning is a lovely blog with great etsy finds, design ideas and the wonderful Through Her Eyes series.

So there you go. It doesn't really get any better so check 'em out!
