You like me...You really like me

Yes I know that phrase is cheesy and way overused but its kind of how I feel at this point after being nominated for this (which I'm not sure I truly deserve)

Although I am but a baby in the blogoshpere, Brillig the brilliant, wordly, charming woman that she is thought highly enough of me to bestow upon me this honor. If I could turn around and nominate her I would absolutely do so as she is an eloquent, passionate blogger and a must read for me.

But here goes - and this was a challenge for me as I attempt to spread my wings and learn more about all the talented bloggers out there.

The Instructions:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of this award.
3. Optional: Proudly display the “Thinking Blogger Award” (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog.)

The Nominees:

1)Suburban Turmoil :Lindsay over at Suburban Turmoil is a a very talented, astute blogger that writes with flare. I found her through a Google Search for Dora (The Explorer) Twisty Puzzles of all things and spent the rest of the day reading her archives. Besides the fact that we share some similarities (step-parenting teens) I simply enjoy checking her out to see what thought provoking topic she might post next or what she might post to cause to me laugh out loud. She is seriously a hoot.

2)Rock Star Mommy She cusses like a sailor and even posted about it but I absolutely love her. She is frank ,honest and quite humorous (or for you rsm, shall I say funnier than sh*t)- all things I absolutely appreciate.

3)Crazy and In Charge I'm loving her more and more each day. She's real, she's candid and secretly I want to live her life after this post

4)Redneck Mommy Simply brilliant. She's smart,sassy and honest and truly I'd love to just spend the day hanging with her.

5)The Butrflygarden - Yes I know Brillig already nominated her but honestly she's deserving of multiple Thinking Blogger Awards. I did a double take when I saw her age because at only 24 she's wise beyond her years. She's sensitive and compassionate and I'll always have a soft spot for her because she was the first to comment on my blog

(note to non-blogging friends that are reading but not commenting: I'm really needy so uh...could you comment every now and then? K, thanks !)

Wow...SubTurm herself!!!


I'm such a nerd, I know.


I'm working on my list still from Brillig's nom. It may take until Saturday. They'ra makin me WORK today!

Haha...Again, thank you, seriously! Ya'll are giving me quite the big head, but maybe I need that right now! :)

Brillig said...

Holy cow. I'm duly star struck that Suburban Turmoil was here. Hahaha. I guess I'm just as big a nerd as you are, Butrfly. Maybe that's why we get along...

I whole heartedly agree with your noms that I'm familiar with, and those that I'm not familiar with I'm on my way to check out right now!

Brillig said...

Oh, and what I should have said first and foremost, thank you for what you said about ME!! I don't deserve such praise, but I'll take it anyway :D.

Redneck Mommy said...

Girl, anyone who thinks I am simply brilliant is a girlfriend for life. I'm easy that way.

Really. Toss me a bone and I'll hump your leg all day long. Until you beat me off with a stick, that is. Then I'll just pant and give you big puppy eyes.

No one can resist puppy eyes, right?

Thanks for thinking of me. I really appreciate it.

Really. Now come closer. Your leg looks lonely.
