First is the Bliss (Happy 101) Award, given to me by Emma Michaels. Head on over to check out her great blog! The rules for this award are that I have to list 10 things that make me happy, and pass it along to 10 other blogs.

Next is the Kreativ Blogger award, which I was lucky enough to receive from both Wendy at W.M. Morrell's Musings from Down Under and Laura at Reading and Roiboos. Thank you both so much! Now I have to list seven things about myself and then nominate seven blogs...
Seven things about myself:
- This may make me girly, but I actually like to wear the color pink.
- I don't like spicy food. Or cheese, although I'm working on that... I also used to hate mints (I thought they were spicy), but I've gotten over that one.
- Despite being an environmentalist, I use obscene amounts of paper towels in the kitchen...
- I drink 2-4 cups of coffee a day, plus at least 1-2 cups of tea. But I'm not addicted to caffeine (or so I think...)
- I used to want to be a writer, and still wonder about it sometimes.
- I'm a packrat... I can't get rid of anything, especially books ;)
- I'll buy three pairs of new shoes, but then just keeping wearing my old, comfy ones anyway.
