Happiness Tag

I've been tagged by Lauren@Always Me to complete The Happiness Tag.  Thank you very much Lauren!

1. List 5 things that make you happy.
2. List 5 songs that make you happy.
3. List 5 bloggers that make you happy and let them know that they have been nominated.

A. Five things that make me happy:
  1. My family; both my immediate and extended family
  2. Our pets: Cats-Demi and Ichi; Dog-Muffy
  3. Libraries...both public and school libraries are the best deals ever for book lovers like me where everything is free!
  4. Fresh summer fruits and vegetables...right now I am super happy about berries and peaches.
  5. Friends
B. Five songs that make me happy:

1. Pharrell Williams HAPPY
(I can't help it, this song makes me happy!)

2. Weird Al Yankovic, WORD CRIMES
I could add all of Weird Al's songs to this list. All of them make me happy.

Who can remain sad in the face of this song?

4. Pearl Django, BESAME MUCHO
Basically anything music with an accordion makes me smile, it is such a goofy instrument

5. Jimmy Buffett, MARGARITAVILLE
There are so many fun, happy songs. I wish the list was longer.
This song is associated with a lot of happy memories.

C. Bloggers that make me happy
  1. Helen at Helen's Book Blog She writes really good reviews. I want to partner with her. I read, she writes! Ha!
  2. Deb Nance at Readerbuzz. Everything about her blog makes me happy.
  3. Sue Jackson at Book by Book. She and I have been blog friends long enough it seems like we are real friends. Some day I am going to talk her into visiting me here in Washington State. 
  4. Rummanah Aasi at Books in the Spotlight. She is a fellow librarian and we are simpatico in so many of our reading preferences.
  5. Jen. J. at Jen J.'s Book Sheets. Jen's blog appeals to the very geeky side of me and my obsession with starred reviewed books. She does a fantastic job of keeping track of and charting all the books with miltiple starred reviews which helps me decide what to read next.
Feel free to join in the fun even if I didn't tag you specifically. It will make you happy!
