Posted in Awards, Random Happiness

My First for 2017 =)

I’m excited to receive my very first blog award for this year.  Thank you Andrei for nominating TheHappyLife101 for the  One Lovely Blog Award. 🙂

THOUGHT AVENUE: Speak Your Mind is one of the most sensible and thought-provoking yet humorous blog that I’ve seen. I strongly encourage everyone to visit Andrei’s blog and I guarantee that you will not be wasting your precious time.


  1. Thank the person that nominated you and leave a link to their blog.
  2. Share 7 facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate at most 15 people.
  4. Tell your nominees the good news!

7 Facts.JPG

  1. I am comfortable going out without wearing any make-up on. I’d rather spend an hour reading an interesting book, than spend an hour in front of the mirror  putting make-ups.
  2. I can cook a food that I’ve never cooked as long as I’ve tasted it- One of my many amazing talents! 😉
  3. I’m a better Writer than a Speaker. In person, I stutter a lot!
  4. I have a notebook where I write my thoughts for my daughter. She’s only 5-years old now so I could not really talk to her in a more mature way. But there are things that I want her to know from my experiences with her. So I just write them on my “Dear Gaby” notebook, and hopefully I will not lose it until she’d get to read it when she’s older. 🙂
  5. Sometimes, I use my “travel time” to the office to pray. And I do randomly pray for  strangers.
  6. I could live a day (or a week) without my cellphone with me. It’s true.
  7. I love planners. I still own an actual planner even if I could schedule upcoming events on my cellphone or Outlook. 🙂

It’s great if you guys would participate, but it’s also okay if you chose not to. Just know that I find your blogs lovely and they deserve the recognition. 🙂

      1. Gaby will be proud too, for sure! 🙂 Please forgive the typos, my ipad has a mind of its own! I’m typing one word, it’s displaying something else, lol


  2. Congratulations, Nina! A well deserved blog award. You most definitely write One Lovely Blog. And, thank you for my nomination I am honored to be a recipient of this blog award. I enjoyed reading what you wrote about yourself. We are two peas in a pod, except for the cooking part.

    1. Thank you Nikki! I have thought about doing it before but wasn’t able to… this time I’m really doing it! :)…and you definitely deserve the nomination! Your blog is one of the best! 😉


      1. Thanks Nina, that’s very kind but do you know what, I’ve kind of given up on awards. I think that we ALL inspire each other in our own unique way. There simply aren’t enough awards to go round! 😊 And I mean that in the nicest possible way.
