8. Shopping
9. Cooking

10 MORE things that make me happy:
1. Friends!!
2. Karma...and when it FINALLY bites the butts of those who deserve it!
3. Hearing couple's "love stories". I'm a romantic sap!
4. LOST!!!! Only 19 more days!!
5. Hugs and kisses. They really are magic.
6. Sprinkles - portable rainbows
7. Embellishments - aka Card Bling!! BLING IT ON, BABY!!
8. Flowers, for just because
9. Mozart truffles
10. Coke floats

I don't think there are rules for this I'm gonna make one up, lol! What one thing has been "sunshine" for your week so far??

For me it was last night. I had purchased some flowers from a seller on eBay. The picture was gorgeous but they wound up being kinda....well....ugly. So I emailed the seller, who I had done a ton of business with previously and had been very satisfied, to tell her that I was disappointed and that the actual flowers looked nothing like the picture. I told her I'd just keep them as sending them back wouldn't really be cost effective, but that she might want to take her own photos if this had been a "stock" photo from the company.

She emailed me back, apologizing and said to keep them but that she'd refund the money for them. I thought that was so great because she didn't HAVE TO do that, but was more interested in me being a satisfied customer, than making a couple of bucks! Isn't that awesome??? Just when you think no one knows how to give good customer service anymore!!!! So fabulous!!

So dear bloggy Reader, feel free to take both awards for your lovely blog and pass them along. If you do take them, please come back and link up so I can read what has been making YOU happy!!! Happiness rocks, don't you think?? My birthday Stampin Up order arrived last night so I'm off to the Stampin Studio upstairs...

That seller knows what she is doing. That's for sure!

It made me happy when I attended a meeting last night and my boss kept telling all of the new members of the council what a great job I do.

Allyson said...

Oh how I do LOVE good customer service. I am quick to bad-mouth bad customer service, but forget to reward the good. I think we just come to expect it. Thanks for rewarding the good. And um..what exactly is Mozart truffles??
