Rested, Relaxed, Restored, and Rewarded!

I'm home from my weekend getaway, and it was wonderful. I ate delicious food, enjoyed the company of my friends, tried a couple of new drinks (a mojito, which was pretty good, and a coconut rum and Coke, which was delicious!), rode Chuck Norris' horse (totally serious - he donated the horse to this place about a month or so ago and I RODE CHUCK NORRIS' HORSE!), got my first massage ever (but not the last! It was heavenly!), learned some new cooking skills, tried Yoga, chilled by the pool, and yes, I took a nap! I learned some things about myself, restored my soul, and enjoyed just "being away from it all"! But I truly did miss Hubby and the kids (and those rascally doggies of mine!) so it was good to get home today. Two nights away from them was enough.

While I was gone, Well Behaved Krissy gave me this award!

Here's how it works:

1. When received, you may post the Premio to your blog.

2. Link to the blogger you received it from.

3. Give it to 7 bloggers.

4. Link to those 7 blogs.

5. Leave those seven bloggers a comment about receiving the Brilliant Premio.

I'm a Libra too! Baked into pies, lol, that was funny! Me too! Although I have to go with a cherry pie, though, if the question were actually 'pie' xoxo

Aww, shucks. Thanks! And is it just me or did we do this little quiz before (with no award attached)?

I think so, cjh. But it's fun, so I did it again! ;-)

Thank you so much for the award! It's the first one I've ever gotten. Sorry it's taking me so long to not only respond here but to get it up. I will get it up this week on my blog.

I'm a Libra, too. I guess I missed this post because I don't know where you went, but I really want to know! It sounds so fun.
