Blogger Award #1

 First of all I would like to thank Amanda over at La Blondie Peruana for giving me the "Happy 101" Blogger award, which is also my first award.

Now I will stop slacking and fulfill my necessary duties!

"Happy 101" Blogger Award!
The Rules:
*List 10 things that make you happy
*Pass the award on to 10 bloggers that brighten your day

1. Running - I don't know that I would be able to function without it. 

2. Go Girls- My source of caffeine... I definitely wouldn't be able to function without it.

3. Honey Bunches of Oats- I am addicted to this cereal, and my morning would definitely not 
be the same without it. It is like lucky charms for grown ups, but instead of fishing the little marsh mellows out of the box, I fish out the little sugar filled oat bunches. 

4. Eric ( my husband )- Life would definitely be empty without him, and I don't know what I would do without the midnight entertainment of sleep talking/walking. 

5. Hanging out with my brother -We have so much fun together. Unfortunately, I don't get to hang out with him nearly as much as I would like because he lives on the other side of the country.

6. Spending time with my Mom- Whether it is trying new restaurants, taking cooking classes together, seeing new movies, we always have a good time. 

7. Hiking with my Dad- I love spending time outdoors with my Dad, especially hiking and taking pictures..except I am jealous of his camera.

8. Cooking- I enjoy eating the finished product of something I make ( whether it is good..or just plain horrible), but sometimes the process of just cooking a meal is even more enjoyable.

9. Learning- It simply just makes me happy to learn new things.

10.  The beach on a sunny day. When I hear the term "go to your happy place" I automatically picture the beach. More specifically Pismo Beach, on a sunny day, with all of my family. I really don't know that it could get much better than that. 

10 Bloggers that brighten my day-

Cheryl- Confessions of a Twenty Something Year Old 
Sarah Von- Yes and Yes 
Paul - Travels With Paul 
Ashley- Germato 
M - Blackberries to Apples 
Michelle - Oh, Mishka 
Chicken - Tales From The Chicken Coop: A Day in the Life of Mrs. Chicken 

Alright so I am breaking the rules a little bit... as you can see I did not meet my 10 blogger quota because #1 well i'm lame, you should know that...and I am still discovering the wonderful world of blogging. If I am lucky enough to receive another blogger award hopefully I will have 10 bloggers to pass it onto by then.


  1. You should do the blog "Stuff Christians Like blog". It makes me laugh. Also thanks for the shoutout, I miss you and hope we can hangout sometime soon. Seriously, run here Forrest!

  2. Awwww thanks for the nod. I feel like Drew Berrymore when she accepted her Golden Globe! Mostly because I just went to the dentist and the entire left side of my mouth is paralyzed...hey she made a joke about it in her speech YouTube it! I must say Amber that you make me laugh really hard out loud to myself at my desk whenever I read your blog, I get strange stares from co-workers who think that I’ve finally completely lost it, but your blog is totally worth it.

  3. aww haha well it makes me happy to know my blog makes you laugh real life I am sooo lame.

    Oh and I saw Drew's acceptance speech I laughed quite hard at her mouth paralyzation joke lucky for you it is only temporary :)
