blogger love

merci beaucoup to my blogger friend pink champagne
for this fun "i love your blog" award...

since this is a happy recognition of my new favorite hobby,
i'm to list 10 things (in no particular order) that make me happy,
and tag 10 happy bloggers... here goes!

1) my muffy...this girl is my pride and joy.
she makes me laugh every day and tries my patience, too.
it's true what they say,
being a mama is the toughest and most rewarding job in the world!

2) christmas in tennessee with family
from my family of four + muffy and mr. prep to the whole gang for a holiday hootenanny, there's nothing like spending christmas in dixie, together.

3) summer camp. yea, i know i'm too old to go,
but i love the memories and friends i made.
my favorite camp is camp sumatunga in alabama.

4) going OUT to dinner.
i enjoy cooking, when i have time, but i have to admit, i'm not very good at it.
i just love to be waited on, have someone else set up, cook and clean up!

5) the theater. for plays, musicals and movies. i love the drama of it all!
this is the theater in alabama where i first took the stage!
appropriately named, don't you think?

6) southern traditions. from sitting on the front porch in my big white rocking chair to drinking sweet tea, eating catfish, saying hey ya'll to friends...
my home may be in the north but my heart and soul are in the south!

7) church. a place to reconnect, recharge and rejoice!
this is actually the church mr. prep and i got married at in vermont.
8) all things preppy and monogrammed. pink, green, bright and happy!

9) family heirlooms. the tradition and history is something worth celebrating.
this lead crystal bowl and platter is my great-great-great grandmother's
from chicago
and is the centerpiece of my dining room table today.

10) shopping! anytime, anywhere...
from big city boutiques to cute country crafts...i was born to do this!

I tag these 10 bloggers that bring a little happy into my life each day...
