**We have two winners!
Random: #36 Jazz
Hayley’s Pick: jw4mkc with –> musingsfromblondie.com
It was really hard to pick a winner … it came down to a coin toss with an honorable mention going to: ‘sothisisbrazileh.com’
Other’s that made the top 1o were: southamericansomething, latinledger, hayleyknowsbest (my favorite), whereintheworldishayley, exchanginghayley!
Several months ago, I posted about Hayley (my oldest daughter) going to Brazil next year. She is going as a Rotary Youth Exchange Program. It’s going to be a great adventure, but we will miss her!
She leaves August 11th and will be gone for 10-11 months! AHHHH!
She has decided that she is going to BLOG while she is gone and keep us all updated as to her activities and whereabouts. Easy enough –> OR not! She can’t think of a ‘cool’ name for her blog. Come to think of it I don’t think kids say ‘cool’ that much any more but this is a ‘cool’ mom blog and it belongs to me, so I am going to say, “cool”.
I told her we could have a contest on my site to name the BLOG and believe it or not she thought it sounded like a fun idea.
Put on your creative caps and come up with a blog name for my girl :)
On Thursday night about 9pm’ish we’ll choose two winners – one winner will be randomly drawn and the second winner will be the name Hayley likes the best :) If by chance she doesn’t like any of the names (which I doubt) I’ll just randomly draw the 2nd winner.
To be eligible to win leave a comment with your BLOG name suggestions.
Speaking of cool … I received two awards just recently. I am very pleased :) I think supposed to do more than just mention them here, I have to pass them forward, but for tonight I will just ‘toot my own horn’ and say, “thanks” and then later in the week I will figure out what to do and do it!
Kami @ wer4 gave me this ‘power of schmooze’ award:
Monserrat @ beehive academy gave me this ‘rockin-blogger’ award:
Thank you both!
I’m giving away a FREE product every week day until the end of July. Read more here: Contest Details

Hmm maybe she should could open up a thesaurus, incorporate her name and Brazil? If all else fails Hayley’s Adventure or Adventures in Brazil, lol.
Hayley’s Daily Exchange
Babbling in Brazil
Oh man i could keep going, better stop now. Hope that gets the wheels turning.
Wow, Brazil sounds like fun… and you can’t beat their tans! I am horrible at coming up with good names, so I’ll keep thinking and post again if I come up with something good. For now, I’m going to shop the baby marketplace and see what I can get with my gift cert :)
Rainforest Rotary Ramblings
Blog de Brasil
Blonde in Brasil
While on Exchange
Pindorama (Brazil nickname – from Tupi, “land of palm trees”)
Gringa en Brazil!
What about names not necessarily to do with Brazil, so that when she comes back..IF..she wants to keep it up, the name can stay. I know there are some listed above, but what about a play on Legally Blonde, like BilingualBlonde or BiculturalBlonde ..hmmm
What about BlondeMusings or MusingsfromBlondie – something with a feature, like her hair.. instead of her name..
Are her eyes blue?? BlueEyedBloggette.. BlondeBloggette..
and if she really wants her name, then maybe use her middle name – to add a fun spin to herself.
Good luck.. I will keep my thinking cap on for this..
Hayley’s Brazilian Exchange
Sentiments from South America
Hayley Knows Best
Wow! Brazil for 10-11 months! What a great adventure and experience. I would have loved to do something like that just out of high school.
Wow that sounds like fun. My dd went on exchange to Japan for a summer when she was 14. It would have been great to be able to read her daily blog. She had a super time as I am sure your daughter will. I think flying with Haley would be a great name.
Around Brazil in 80 Days
Adventures in Foreign Exchange
Great idea for a contest! I can’t wait to read about her adventures and live vicariously through them (I’m not a big adventurous person, but I wish I was)!
She probably won’t be able to post daily, but my idea was Hayley’s Daily Brazil Blog.
Sorry, I am not feeling too creative today, I guess! i will try to think of more!
Jane, Pinks & Blues Girls
Brazil, that’ll be an amazing experience for her.. and you! At this point I can’t even IMAGINE but my kids are still so young :-)
Hmmm, I am not that creative but here’s one:
like Hayley’s comet?!
Actually, I’ll just plug some of the other ones… I like the ones that are spin on MommyKnows;-)
What, no Tim Hortons?
Wow Brazil! Fun in the sun! I hope she gets some time to do some site seeing when she is there although I know she will be busy with the Youth Rotary! How about Hayley’s Latin Brazilian Beats…sort of like the 70’s teen magazine Tiger Beat.( Am I dating myself? ha ha) She can chat about her experiences and what life is like for the teen in Brazil compared to the Canadian teen.
Brazil! Wow! The only thing that comes to mind is Waxing Brazilian, but could you IMAGINE the Google searches that would show up there???
Use one of the PG ones above :)
How about Bungalowin’ in Brazil! :) haha…hope she has fun there!
How about Blogging Brazilliant?
Whatever name she decides on I hope she has a fabulous time!
Brains & Beauty in Brazil

How exciting! My step-sister did an exchange to South Amercia (can’t remember details – we weren’t related at that point) but she loved it.
I’m not feeling to creative today. Hmm…

Sounds like quite an adventure. I hope she has fun! :)
OH.. what about something portuguese? That is what they speak in Brazil right? Like..
Bem-vindo a (la?) Blonde(or/Exchange/Traveling) Blogger/Blogette
Welcome to the… whatever she chooses.. Something simple and easy to google for translation.. Even Olafromthe..whatever name she chooses for herself.
Well, good luck finding an awesome name Hayley!
Wow, what fun that will be. I’m not creative today, all I can think of is:
“Bloggin’ Brazilian Style” or just “Bloggin’ Brazil”
Some great suggestions above!
How about “Bio of a Blonde in Brazil” or “Latin Ledger”?
How about “Blazin’ in Brazil”?
Here are some ideas:
Tourist in Brazil
Passport to Brazil
Brazil or Bust
I like the one
” where in the world is Hayley?”
I’m excited for her. I was a Rotary Exchange student myself, way back in 1990, my senior year of high school, in France. I wish her well!
Where Am I?
How fun, Lucky girl!.
