Five Fabulous Things: And My FAB-U-LOUS Blog Award goes to . . .

Recently, I recieved a very generous FAB-U-LOUS blog award by fellow blogging pal, Candi from her FAB-U-LOUS blog, Candi's Corner: Wanderlust and Passions. Thank you so much Candi for saying that my blog is FAB-U-LOUS and for the Award! And based upon the company you put me in I feel very honored! So now, I am to share 5 things that I think are Fabulous and then pick 5 blogs that I want to give a FAB-U-LOUS Blog Award to. First, here are 5 things that I think are FAB-U-LOUS!

1. Fabulous No. 1: My Family, Friends, Co-Workers, Blogging Friends and SlowTravel, because they bring me:

(Borrowed from my Why I Love to Slow Travel: One Word, One Image post!)

2. Fabulous No. 2: Travel (I just love it)

3. Fabulous No. 3: Pizza (My most favorite food item-and I'm throwing in a nice glass of prosecco too!)

4. Fabulous No. 4: Italy & Spain

5. Fabulous No. 5: Living near the ocean!

I thought long and hard about the 5 blogs that I would give a FAB-U-LOUS blog award to and here's what I decided. My FAB-U-LOUS Blog Award goes to . . . all of my Favorite Blogs. And why, because I think they're Fabulous!

  1. Great blog entry! You JOY just jumps off the screen at me.

    And I so agree with you about Italy and Spain. :wink:

  2. Hi Deborah, thanks for your kind comments! I love that "joy" so much I just had to use it again! :)

    Italy and Spain! Totally FAB-U-LOUS!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Kathy, you are a fabulous friend and have a fabulous blog! I love your five fabulous things. You can use the JOY image as often as you want. It makes me very happy!

    I'm working on my fabulous entry, just need to find the photos.

    Congrats on a well deserved award!

  4. Great list! I would agree with all 5 (although yet to visit Spain). Fabulous entry!! :)

  5. Kathy,
    I love all your fabulous things.
    And that pizza looks delicious, are these eggplants on top? Yummy! And how generous and sweet of you to give the fabulous blog award to all your favorite blogs, so sweet:)
    And I agree, living near the ocean is fabulous!
    Thanks for a fabulous blog!

  6. I agree, great post! Your five-things list is fabulous and fun. I'm happy to see "joy" again and oh my gosh, that is a pizza in Venice, I do believe. Eggplant pizza? And Prosecco...perfect. Pizza is my favorite food too, I love it!

    And looks like a little pink orb in your beach photo - very cool!

    Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

  7. Hi Everyone, thanks for all of your wonderful comments!

    Leslie, Cool right back at you!Thanks for having such a creative and fabulous blog for me to enjoy and learn from. I'm enjoying your photos, designs and sayings a lot! Hope you had a great weekend!

    Maria, thank you so much and you are a fabulous friend too! All of your wonderful Spain tips that you took the time to send to me, and also for having such a Fabulous blog for me to learn so much from and to enjoy! Glad you like my Joy. When I get that feeling again, it may make another appearance! :) Can't wait to see your fabulous entry too!

    Giraosli, thanks. I like my list too (and one day I hope you get to see Spain). Thanks for your fabulous blog! I always enjoy reading about Hawaii on your blog. Brings back fond memories for me and I enjoy reading about your trip plans! I've learned so much about train travel from you.

    Candi, I'm glad you love my fav things! :) Wow you and Annie are right. That is a pizzza with eggplants on top. One of my favs :)! I don't live quite as close as you do to the ocean or near as beautiful a beach as you do in Maui, but I do love being only a few minutes away and I always seem to get rejuvenated whenever I see and hear the sounds of the ocean. Thanks again for your fabulous blog and I am really enjoying reading and learning so much from you.

    Hi Annie, thanks so much for still liking my Joy! Okay, just saying the word joy makes me think of the Joy Singers and "the" song . . . Let's Get it On. :) I'll probably always associate that song with you like I associate Mamma Mia with Anne. :) You and Candi guessed right, that is a delicious pizza with one of my favs, eggplant! It was in Venice at a Chow Venice recommended restarauant called Dickins Inn in my "FAV" campo, Santa Margherita. Perfect is right (had to add the prosecco). Notice my pattern of cheating on this post by adding mulitiple items .... :)You have a great eye! I did not see that pink orb until you mentioned it and had to look closer to find it. Hmm wonder what angel was hanging out with us at the beach. I think its' very cool too! Thank you for having such a fabulous blog for me to enjoy and to learn from. My trip to Venice would not have been as great had I not read your article and discovered those fabulous churches which I have also grown to love too, especially the Maria Salute!

    I did have a fabulous weekend! And I understand your Tar Heels had a FAB-U-LOUS game yesterday! Whoo hoo, final four!

    Sandra, thanks for your comments. Glad you like my list and thank you so much for having such a fabulous blog. As I did last year, I have enjoyed reading about your trip plans and you also come up with some surprise entries that makes me laugh!

    Thanks again everyone! And have a great day!

  8. Kathy, I love your JOY --it is sort of just you. Italy? Of course, isn't it one of everybody's favorites? I love the beach foto. A great post.

  9. Hi Jane, thank you so much for your comments and I'm glad you love my JOY just like I do! :)Italy does seem to be a definite favorite and for very good reason! It's one of mine too and I think it will always be. That sunset photo on the beach is one of my favorites!

    Have a great week and thanks again for your kind comments Jane!
