Happy, happy, happy!

Question: Have any of you Blogspot users converted to Wordpress? What do you think?

My blog is getting ready to undergo a major overhaul. I will soon be found under domain name and will be a Wordpress blogger (I'll miss the good'ol Blogspot days, I'm sure!). Thomas is the mastermind behind what will ensue, and I am VERY excited about it! I will keep you posted as to what this transition will mean for my posting, but please bare with me!

 The sweet Ashley of Kiwis and Cocktails passed the Happy 101 Award on to me (THANK YOU! Two in a week...this is exciting for an award virgin!)

The rules are:
1. List 10 things that make you Happy

10 things that make me happy (there's a lot!)...

1. Scoring a goal in a hockey game!
2. Seeing my puppy shake like a jitter bug because she’s so excited to see me!
3. A good glass of red wine, Chianti preferred.
4. Going on a long, effortless run.
5. Waking up with not a THING to do
6. Finding new, fun finds at the grocery store
7. Husband playing with my hair
8. Long dinners with my family filled with inappropriateness and laughter
9. Helping others reach their health and nutrition goals

I love to read ALL of the blogs I follow, it was hard to narrow it down! Keep the happiness going by sharing 10 things that make YOU happy and 10 blogs that brighten your day!

On a completely unrelated and shameful note...Jersey Shores is quite possibly as addictive as crack cocaine. Puppy whined at 5:20 this morning (alarm wasn't set to go off til 6:20), and instead of rolling over to go back to bed (what I usually do, especially by Friday!), I got up......AND WATCH JERSEY SHORES BEFORE WORK. I have reached a new level of overly inappropriate TV viewing. 

Run #3 on the new treadmill was a nice recovery run of 3.1 miles with a leisurely warm-up and cool-down. LOVE having a treadmill at home. Though, I must admit, the morning workouts have not ensued as I had originally planned. HOWEVER, the important thing is getting in the workouts whether it be morning, noon, or night...and I'm doing that!

What are you up to this weekend? Shopping, shopping, and baking?

Tonight is husband's Christmas party and we're driving around in stretch Expedition limos to see beautiful Christmas lights, and then out for a wonderful Italian dinner (Chianti, woot!). I'm really excited! Have a WONDERFUL weekend...TGIF!!!!!!


  1. I wouldn't drink Chianti if my tongue was on fire and that was the only liquid around.

  2. Thanks so much for the award! And congrats to you for winning. I'll admit, I'm bad at doing the whole "award thing", but I still appreciate it very much.

    I love Chianti too, by the way, and if my hair wasn't so curly, I'm sure I'd love Nick to run his fingers through it! They get stuck when he tries, haha.

    This weekend we are shopping and I might make some delicious granola! We'll see...

    HAve a good one!

  3. OMG I WATCHED IT TOO THIS MORNING WHILE I SWUNG MY KETTLEBELL! I am obsessed with that show is so BAD that it's good lol

    AWWW Thank you for the award! I will play it forward on my Monday's Post =) since I blog via my phone on the weekends lol. I am all about Number 5 on your list =)

    I tried to do the Wordpress move but honestly I found that there was too much going on, on that site...I am a simple girl and love my simple blogger so instead I just got my own domain and stayed at home with blogger where I belong. BUT I did snatch up Namastemari at Wordpress just in case lol

    The highlight of my weekend will be running over to the GAP in 40 minutes to get a jacket that I want and it's the last one in stock! GASP

  4. I love being on wordpress - it is so easy to use. I hope you have a great weekend! I'm having 20 teenage girls over tomorrow morning for a cookie swap/meeting. Busy preparing for that as you can imagine!!

  5. If we bare, you will have to bare!!!!!! ;)

    You will like WP much better I think. I blog w/ WP for work and it is highly more functional. Blogger is more simple but limited. anyway...

    Happy Friday@!!

  6. I like your list!
    I am going to go do my 5K on the treadmill RIGHT after I leave this comment. I keep getting distracted. I am gonig.
    SO, if you go to wordpress do i need to update my reader?

  7. I might have to check out Jersey Shore..I am a sucker for reality shows. Right now, I'm addicted to Housewives of Orange County.

    I am using Wordpress right now and although I have never used Blogspot, I find it to be pretty easy to use.

    Have a great time tonight. I am doing a little baking and shopping!

  8. Congrats on the award, and thanks for passing it on to me! :)

    I have thought about switching to Wordpress, but it seems a bit too overwhelming at the moment... Can't wait to see your new site!!! Very exciting!

    I'm meeting a friend for our annual holiday tea on Sunday. We have been doing this for over 15 years... Should be fun. Other than that, I have quite a bit of shopping to do!

    Enjoy your weekend! :)

  9. awww congrats on the reward!! and thank YOU SO MUCH FOR TAGGING ME!! for real, i smiled so big when i saw that!! you are AWESOME. im going to post the 10 things tommorow! yay!! you know i love writing about things that make me happy.

    hahaha i just started watching jersey shore yesterday..ridiculous but addicting!

  10. do it now :) the longer you wait the worst it is!

    thanks for the blog award!!

  11. Hi! I took my blog over from Blogger to Wordpress and I love it! I do still pop back over to blogspot to leave a post now and then, but its still a struggle to get people from here to all switch over so I did lose a bunch of readers in the process

    But the new site is way better looking, and I'm a wordpress lover!

  12. thanks for the award and congrats on to new domain

  13. I switched to Wordpress - it is ridiculously easy!! There are still some things I don't get (no surprise), but really, it's so much better than Blogger (or at least, IMO). :-)

  14. I mean, "Blogspot." :-)

  15. Two Peas and Their Pod just made the switch and she's really happy with it. She said there are so many more options. Good luck!

  16. I made a switch to wordpress a few months ago, and I love it. I couldn't ever go back...the switch was really easy too.

  17. Thanks for the award! I will be posting within a few days!!

    Personally, I like Wordpress a lot better than Blogger, which I used for my previous blog. It just runs smoother and is easier to use.

    Thanks for the well wishes, too, I am still fighting it but your comment made me smile :)

  18. Thanks for the shout out! I've had a busy weekend, hardly any blog reading - I need to catch up! :D

  19. Aww thanks for mentioning my blog--I really enjoy reading yours as well!! As you can tell, I am playing serious blog reading catch up :-)
