Sandy, you made me blush bright pink! All the good things you've said about me. Awwww... Thank you! You are way too awesome, and I'm sure you know that. *GRIN*

Love your answers! I'm trying to love pink and hope I succeed. LOL!

I hope you're having a blast these holiday season. Merry Christmas and happy new year!

I am so with you on that fear of heights thing! Congratulations on your award!

JoAnn said...

What fun! Risotto and wine...yum. Congratulations on the award and thanks for passing it on to me. I'll do this next weekend!

I think you struck a chord with risotto and wine! It will obviously have to be what is served if there is ever a Blogger Dinner!

Molly said...

Congratulations on such a well-deserved award!

I am off to check out Alice's website now.

Literary Feline said...

Congratulations on the award, Sandy. It is much deserved. :-)

My hair is rather moody too. Why is it that it's on its best behavior when I have no where to go? My pets have been naughty lately too. LOL

Have a wonderful weekend, Sandy.

Alyce said...

This does look like fun! Thanks for passing it on to me! :) Some of those look hard to answer in just one word though. I think you did a great job with your answers.

"Don't follow the rules of awards.." I like that! Sometimes I don't even want to tag people, depending on who it might be.

I definitely share the fear of heights--and the helicopter over Hawaii only aggregated it. i sweat I would never get into one again. I can't think of any other muffin other than blueberry! :)

Ann Summerville said...

I stopped by your blog today.

Julie P. said...
