I have been officially recognized! This is so cool! I don't know what to say...
Oh wait, I do know, I need to introduce The Fabulous Sugar Doll Award I received!!! Isn't it neat?!
I'm very new to this, but apparently the rules to receiving this award are that you thank the person who gave you the award, share 10 things about yourself, pass the award on to 10 bloggers you've recently discovered and think are fantastic and then contact them with the good news! :D
Awesome! Let's start! Thank you very much Lyndsay! You're a great storyteller, I got a great feel for who you and your fiance are right from the start! Your blog is really cute and fun, I hope to hear more wedding planning tales from you soon!
10 Things About Myself:
1. I'm kinda a klutz XP
2. I think Finding Nemo is freaking awesome!
3. I can fold an origami crane, box and frog on demand.
4. I proudly eat frosting right out of the can.
5. I get wayy too into movies.
6. Favorite fictional lovable dorks: Philip J. Fry and Ethan MacManus.
7. If you speak Spanish, I will instantly love you more! (I don't speak it very well but I love to practice!)
8. The only history that interests me is in the B.C. years. (Egypt = Win!)
9. I have a strange fascination with the crazy and massive following of Twilight. (Why the hell do so many people like it so much?!)
10. I LOVE MUSICALS!!!
Crap, I just realized that any friend reading this who didn't already know it was me, now will have no doubt that it's me. Please don't tell my boyfriend! XD
Since I haven't been blogging for that long and haven't been exploring too many wedding blogs, some of these are already very well known and kinda obvious? But this is realistically what I have read in the past month, so bear with me...
And the winners are...
2000 Dollar Budget Wedding
I feel that every bride needs to be pulled away from all the wedding glitz, glam and bling for a day and come back to the true emotions and core of what a wedding is all about. A must read about two people who truly understand who they are and not afraid to show it.
These women really aren't afraid to show everyone who they are, and they create really fun weddings in the process! Being a computer major myself, and my bf being a Star Wars/Star Trek/gaming/computer geek as well, this gives me so many wonderfully nerdy and fun ideas to consider! A must-see for any bride who doesn't want the standard wedding!
A Practical Wedding
I will admit, I have not been able to read as many posts as I would have liked from this blog, but I love how this is another blog that takes the time to go past the pretty flowers, invitations, dress, etc. and goes on to the emotional side of weddings and marriage in general. I greatly look forward to reading their insightful and inspiring messages!
Can't Stop Making Things
I found this through her DIY Tiara post. Look through her previous crafts, and you'll get really clever ideas that can be applied to your (possibly long) list of DIY projects! As a graduate student, I don't get to do crafts very often. :( So blogs like this one help me (vicariously) use my pent-up creative energy! :D
Elizabeth Anne Designs
A beautiful blog with equally beautiful wedding recaps and DIY projects! This blog reminds me a lot of Style Me Pretty, but I do love how the DIY page is more user friendly, with easily-seen photos of the projects listed, and all organized by category! Plus this is one of the few blogs that have posts about Boldt Castle! Definitely a win in my book :)
Haven't read too many posts from this one, but this is another gal who's not afraid to blog about weddings without the engaged or married status! Plus she gets inspiration from musicals!!! Must. read. more. XD
The Broke-Ass Bride
A fundamental blog for a bride on a budget! So many clever ideas that won't break the bank! Like she says "it's not about how much you spend, it's how you spend it!" So many posts to read...so little time! :D
A WeddingBee bride blog that I didn't know existed until I recently stumbled upon it! I was already following Ms. Argyle's posts anyways, and her personal blog is lovely! I absolutely adore the Tuesday Shoesday! <3
The $15,000 Urban Wedding
$15,000 budget. 'Nuff said. But I'll say more anyways XD I'm almost mad at myself for not reading this sooner, I mean we have the same budget goals! Reading a post here and there it seems like this gal has a great sense of humor! Save for later reading, check!
With such a deliciously technical name, I just had to take a peek! Have to love the freebies category, with lots of clip art, templates and fonts for a bride's crafting needs! She seems to have a more vintage feel to her style but definitely worth taking a closer look!
Wow, I think I will forever be reading blog posts now XD
