Ooooooooh Look! Pam over at Antique or Not gave me an award! (And a bea-u-ti-mous one at that!) Apparently, I am Brilliante, which may or may not be something like Brilliant. Maybe that's like a European spelling, in which case I'm totally down with being internationally brilliant. Or Brilliante. And Premio.
Anywho, here's the dealio. Once an award is received, the rules are as follows:

Put the logo on your blog. (Check!)
Add a link to the person who awarded you. (Check!)
Nominate at least seven other blogs. (See below)
Add links to those blogs on your blog. (Ditto)
Leave a message for your nominee on their blogs. (Annnnnd...check!)

With all that legal stuff dispensed with, let's move on to the moment you've all been waiting for!
Envelope please! And the award goes to:
Rage in the AM- A totally hilarious blog about a high school friend of the Seester who now lives in Korea. Who knew Rage could be so hysterical?
Diverged- This happens to be the Seester's blog, but family associations didn't bias me in the slightest. However, she shares the same warped quirky sense of humor as me, so maybe that's why I enjoy reading so much. It's in the genes.
Fully Alive...Ready to Smile- Erin's Canadian, but we won't hold it against her. (Just kidding!) She's also quirky, and I always get a good laugh when I visit her blog.
Life is a Marathon- Mel is another of the Seester's high school buddies, but she writes well, and even though I'd rather have a root canal than do this running nonsense that she loves so much, I do enjoy reading what she's up to.
Red Shoe Ramblings- I just noticed that someone else gave her this same award already, but I enjoy her blog, so I'm keeping her one as one of my award winners anyway.
The Miss Elaine-ous Life- Elaine is a hoot! I love all the stuff that she gets into! I'm totally engrossed in her life. Like daytime drama, only funnier, and without your long lost twin brother's son in a coma.
Rediscovery- This is my good buddy Nicole (and Eli), and she gets the award because I can totally mother Eli vicariously through her. She's more than a mommy blog though, because her strength and honesty and devotion through the good times and bad is an inspiration.
Ta-da! 7 awesome blogs, all of which make me laugh and think and laugh some more. And all of the Brilliante!

Thank you, Quirky!! Since I hardly ever get awards, I LOVE that I got this one twice, so thank you for not kicking me off your list. I think the spelling of "brilliante" somehow gives it a little flair too. Yep...very Euro. ;-)

Now I need to check out your other listeeeeeeees.

Why thank you! I am so honored! I'll have to get this up on mine soon... I've been a little behind in the bloggy world this week.
