They like me, they really like me

So I was nominated as one of 10 favorite blogs of a fellow blogger.  The nice thing about this one is that you learn a little more about me. Oh, you all know you want to... at least I´d like to think so.  Here´s how the game goes:

1. Acknowledge the person who nominated me: 

The Little Hen House : This is a great Mommy friendly blog with funny thoughts and even funnier follow through. She also has a great Shout out section with recommendations of entertaining blogs to check out.

2. List 10 things I like:

1. Mornings on the beach with the fam and friends.
2. A good book that I can´t put down.
3. Sleeping babies. I swear I also like them awake.
4. My husband´s toes. They look like aliens and I love it!
5. My boys´ laughs. All three of them.
6. Take off, on a plane.  It means you are finally heading to wherever it is you are going.
7. Brunch. Enough said.
8. Red wine on a chilly night. I know, I live in the wrong country. Now I just drink it whenever.
9. People watching. I don´t get to do it much theses days but I´ll get back to that hobby eventually.
10. Good food. I love to eat.

Now I have to nominate 10 other bloggers.  In no particular order:

1. Becoming Brazilian : This blog is quirky and well written. You´ll get a good sense of life in Brazil.
2. Danielle in Brazil Another ex-Pat in Brazil. Yes you are seeing a trend.  My favorites are her spontaneous rants about things that annoy just about all us foreigners.
3. Woolgathering : This is a great finding yourself blog. You will feel her and cheer for her and live vicariously through her. 
4. Qualidade De Vida : You never quite now what you´ll get here. It could be an excellent music suggestion, a sassy story, or a well written observation. I check this blog regularly.
5. The Fire Wire : Gadgets, movies, super nerd stuff galore! 
6. Single Infertile Female: You feel her!  She writes incredibly real posts that make you cry, laugh, and sigh.
7. Lori Dyan : I have to thank Hen House for this one.  FUNNY!
8. Rio de Janeiro Daily Photo : I like pictures. I like Rio. I like pictures of Rio.
9. Dlisted I am a secret celebrity gossip reader. Well, not secret anymore.
10. Eyes on Brazil Good English source of Brazilian news/events

Hard to narrow down to 10. I missed a lot of good ones!  I´ll note you guys next time!

So I guess the 10 blogs I mentioned are supposed to do the same thing. I doubt it will happen but it´s always fun to be nominated. 


  1. I appreciate the mention! I'd never seen this blog and it showed up in my referrer list on Wordpress. You make some funny comments and your writing makes me picture you as southern. Are you from the south by chance?

    Ah, I would suggest 10 blogs but I already suggest them on my permanent links page! I'll be adding this one to it in just a second.


  2. Thanks Eyesonbrazil!

    Nope, not from the South. I´m a military brat and have moved around a bit but mainly lived on the west coast.

  3. Thanks for the suggestions, Rachel. I've added the daily photo to my reader. I've already got a few of the others you listed.

    I've been living here north of Rio for about six weeks (plus a bunch of visits). I'm loving your blog! You make me laugh nearly every day.


  4. Thanks Peg! And welcome to Rio! Keep checking out Qualidade de Vida. Jim is going to be putting together a blogger play date.
