I really don't remember winning first place in anything by myself.

Yes, always. I live in Southern California and usually wear Birkenstocks all the time.

3. What color eyes do you have?

4. Look to your left....what do you see?
My pink plaid sweatshirt material blanket from Mammoth Lakes, CA.

5. Soft cookies or crunchy cookies?
I like crunchy cookies.


Caroline said...

Great answers & I like crunchy cookies too.
Have a wonderful Monday !!

Leslie said...

Love Birkenstocks!! Wish I could wear them year round!

Nice blog! I'm your newest follower! Leslie @ Tranquil Acres of Alexandria

kimert said...

Ohhh I just love the background. It may possibly be my fave on here so far! :)
And since you are a Birki wearer maybe you can help me with a problem I have with mine!?

Nanato4 said...

I like crunchy cookies, too! Have a wonderful week!

Joyce said...

I live where there is definitely winter but I always have my toes painted makes me happy and helps defeat the winter blues : ) Have a nice week!

Rochelle@AFamilyofLooneys said...

I have always wanted Birkenstocks. The look like such a comfortable shoe.

Maribeth said...

Love your answers. I don't paint my toe nails, as I wear shoes all of the time. Bad feet!

Donna @ The House on the Corner said...

I agree!! Cute background! It's new right - or am I really that unobservant?

I wish I had the guts to change my design up a bit but I'm scared to death that I'll mess my blog up so bad that it can't be fixed!!

Mary said...

The blanket sounds nice and comfy!

Anonymous said...

ModernMom said...

My toes are always almost painted too. Toes feel naked without paint:)

Michelle said...

Hi Debby,

I don't think I've ever won anything first place either. I have won giveaways, but don't think that counts.

I love crunchy cookies as opposed to soft.

Rebecca Mecomber said...

I don't think I have ever painted my toes, ever. I live in Upstate NY, and we wear boots half the time, lol.

I played today, too! I hope you can visit me. :D Have a GREAT week!

Janean said...

this works out great -- you eat the crunchy cookies and i'll take the soft. yay!

Amy said...

I so need to get my toes done but they are hiding under socks this time of year. I got first place in a walk once.. I love soft cookies.. Have a great day..

Mara said...

I once came first in a shooting competition. I was the best woman during the preliminaries!

Kristie said...

How fun to be able to wear Birkenstocks all the time! I'm not much for wearing socks and shoes, but with the cold this time of year I really don't have a choice ;-)

Any kind of cookies sound really good right now!! ;-)

blueviolet said...

I'll bet you like a good crisp gingersnap then! :)

Tonja said...

Soft eyes.....toe nails painted only in summer!

Shell said...

I'm a soft cookie girl. :)

Rumtruffle said...

Just hopping by via MMOM. If you have a few minutes spare please pop by and see me.

3. Blue.

Sandra said...

It has been chilly in Phoenix the past couple of weeks so I have been wearing socks and shoes more so the toe nails need some I love your new blog look too!

Norwegian Phoenix said...

Stopping by from Meet Me on Monday. I'm now following you and would love for you to follow me back at:

Have a great evening!

Shawn Becker said...

I love your background, it is so much fun and made me smile when I brought up your blog! I thought the last blog I visited had the best background but , after seeing yours, I will bestow upon you First Place for Cutest Blog on this HOP!!!!
Skye is so cute, what a little photo hound!


Nichol said...

My toes are painted every season except winter. No need to keep them pretty when they are in socks and boots! Hope you have a wonderful week:)

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Debby, it sounds so nice to need to keep your toenails painted year round. (I only do it in the summer - nobody sees my toes in the winter!) Unfortunately, I like cookies - soft or crunchy-I eat them all! laurie

Alexis AKA MOM said...

REALLY crunchy cookies? And I thought we were the same ... hehe :)

Jo-anne "Blossy" said...

I've never heard of Birkenstocks before. I had to google them. They do look comfy.

Leslie said...

Oh, Birkenstocks are comfy.. years ago I tried them, and then the following year took a trip to Germany where they are made and bought many pairs because they were much cheaper. They form to your feet much better than those clunky, hard wooden Dr. Scholls.. Does anyone even wear those shoes anymore after trying on a pair of Birkies?

Technodoll said...

Debby has awesome toes :-D

Life, Laughter and Paris said...

Now I feel guilty about my toes! I'll have to do something about this!

nancygrayce said...

Akk! My toenails aren't painted! When spring comes they will be though! :)

Jules said...

Alright, I know I live up in the boonies here in Wisconsin but I have to ask. What is a Birkenstock?

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

I never heard of Birkenstocks but I don't wear shoes that my toes hang out of so never paint my toenails.

jayayceeblog said...

Those are some fun questions and answers! I haven't tried Birkenstocks but think I'll have to test a pair. =D
