Here's to Happiness- Blog Award!

I posted a blog award that I had one last week....
and then found out I received another from the lovely Rachael.  
Thanks Rachael!
Honestly, I am so honored by all of this.
Thank you to everyone for everything!
seriously, I get the biggest smile on my face from all of your sweet comments everyday.
you have no idea how much this all means to me.

okay, now on to the award!

with the Happy 101 award, I have to not only give this away to 10 friends, but I have to make a list of 10 things that make me happy!
{i love this idea, by the way}

so here we go!

pretty hairstyles

quotes that mean a lot

and here are 10 blog friends that make me really happy

1)  Vanessa
2)  Stacey
3)  Cait
6)  Lissa
10)  Niky


go check out those blogs- they're all incredible and inspiring!  

now i need your help!
anyone know of any good free templates or people willing to design my blog/ blog header for free?
i'd {obviously} showcase their blog/business on the side of my blog 
{kinda like when bloggers have sponsors}  
but i'm kinda strapped for cash.
but i'm looking to spruce up and simplify the blog!
if you know anyone {or if you'd be willing too} let me know!

comment me or send an email at

happy saturday!

  1. I love these pretty pictures! I've never tried that flavor of Tazo - I'll be on the lookout for it!

  2. Congrats on the award... and I loved your list.

    The gal who did my blog design is pretty awesome. Not sure if she would do it for free... but for just a header, she'd probably do it for around $15. Very reasonable...
    Good luck. Hope you find something you like!

    i need to try that tea!
    AND CONGRATS ON YOUR AWARD! you deserve it!
    and thanks for passing it along to me!

  4. Thanks, Jackie! You're so sweet :)

    I can't believe I've never heard of that Tazo flavor--I'll have to try it!

  5. those are great happy things :) and love the pictures!

  6. "the cutest blog on the block" has some cute things for blogs. duh lol.
    i made mine in photoshop with a fave pic and using a tutorial i googled. but i'm no help to you if you wanted an illustration...!


i'd love for you to say hi! i normally try to reply to your comment here! xo
