Mi Blog es Brillante!

Sweet! I love a little Spanish love! My Friend Amy said that my blog is Brillante and gave me this fancy award! Isn't it cool?

Amy and I have a little Spanish connection anyway. I "stumbled" across her blog and then discovered that she's the sister of the principal's wife where I went to school in Costa Rica. (did you follow that?) She and her sister, Leah, and their mom also write over at the Friendly Book Nook.

So, once an award is received, the rules are:

1. Put the logo on your blog.

2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.

3. Nominate at least seven other blogs.

4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.

5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

Here are my nominations...

How can you not like any blog that is named after the first line of that famous poem, Jabberwocky? T'was Brillig is one of my "daily" reads. I have to check and see if she's written something witty or just plain inspiring!

The tagline of her blog says, "Sometimes sweet, sometimes tart, but always real" and I have yet to read anything she wrote that wasn't otherwise! If you aren't already, you should really be reading Antique Mommy! (go read the story of why she calls herself that!)

Life with a little one can be challenging at times. Life with a little one with special needs can be especially challenging. But according to Tammy at Praying for Parker that makes it all the more rewarding. She shares her life with us so we can share her life with her sweetheart named Paker.

Cecily has three children. And a husband. And herself! They all provide endless blog fodder for My Chaos, My Bliss. And I love her photo story Fridays (although I can never get my act together enough to participate!)

On the other end of the spectrum is Grandma Henke. She shares memories of her life, funny stories about her grandkids (she's got a new one!) and she's writing a book!

Then there's a blog I just found recently. Heather writes at Autumn At Oak Hollow. She's fantastic! I have so many blogs in my reader already that to add a new one they really have to capture my attention with just a few posts. She did!

and finally... if you want a laugh for the day? Go visit Jim, aka Busy Dad! The chronicles of he and Fury with their legos and their dogs and their... what little boys say are sure to bring a chuckle to your day!

I think that about covers it!

Yes, I know, I'm still out of town. So if I nominated you and you haven't gotten word of it... that's because I haven't left you a comment yet! Will do as soon as I get home! Lots of love!

    Krista, thank you so much for nominating me for this award. I'm honored and have posted about it today.

    I love that you worked at Yosemite. I visited a couple of times with my parents when I was a kid and would really like to go back again someday to take pictures. Maybe when my daughter gets older.

  2. Hey Krista! Thanks so much for this award :) Been trying to catch up after a weekend away visiting relatives, sorry it took me a while to click over here. Dang, now I gotta think up a funny post. I was going to post about the long term implications of the federal interest rate for the US construction industry...
