In honor of, oh, I don't know, Christmas or the end of 2013, I decided to dole out some awards to a few bloggers who have made this year of blogging merry and bright for me. These awards are totally made up and carry no monetary value, whatsoever, unfortunately, but I hope they do bring you a smile!
Best Unicorn goes to Deanna, because she took a unicorn to the gas station, a place where even our bear has never ventured:
Angel's 2nd Favorite Blog award is for Carolynn. Because you know he has to say mine is his #1 favorite, it's his job.
Best Shoe Collection is for Suzanne. The reasoning behind this is obvious if you look at the photo below. You don't happen to wear a size 7, do you?
Best Emails goes to Angi. For real.
Favorite Brand-Newlyweds is for Erica and Malcolm. In this case, brand-new means they haven't been married a year yet. And her posts about their adventures exploring where they live aren't just fluff like "Ooh, isn't this a pretty picture!" There's real thought involved. Revolutionary!
Cutest Husband Award goes to this lady.
Best Desserts is for Kristin. (I spelled your name right, look!) I don't even like desserts all that much, but hers seem to prioritize taste over excruciatingly long preparation periods, and that I like. I also like sugar cookies.
Prettiest Hair goes to Elizabeth. I mean, I love my own short, curly, brunette look, but going in the completely opposite direction...the girl's got some really gorgeous long hair!
Only Other Wife I Know Who Took Anniversary Photos With Her Husband Wearing Their Wedding Clothes...that mouthful of a title goes to Veronica. Seriously, I'm impressed at anyone who manages to do it. It's no easy ordeal. Although...I could have made it easier on myself had I chosen either a summer wedding date or a long-sleeved wedding dress...
Blogger Who Makes Me Laugh the Most goes to Rachel.
Okay, fine. Funny Bloggers Who Are not Me: Michelle and Misty definitely have to be on that list. I'm sure there are other. The problem is that I laugh a lot.
I Wish She Blogged More Often goes to Anna. I mean, if she can make ice cream look like a potato, what else could she do?
Best at Getting Involved in the Blogging Community is for Susannah. Seriously, I don't know how you do it--the whole community aspect is the hardest part for this semi-introverted writer over here!
Best Blog Name: Obligatory Newlywed Blog. It's genius, isn't it?
Big Blogger Who I Actually Read: Aunie. I don't know about you, but I rarely read 'famous' blogs. For the most part I find it hard to feel any inclination to consistently read blogs written by bloggers who never acknowledge that you exist. But this is one lady who I think does make her readers feel like they know her!
I'm sure I could keep coming up with more, but this is supposed to be a blog post, not a book. If I missed you, please don't feel bad--you're name could be on the list for the sequel. If you were to hand out blog awards of randomness, who would you be mentioning?
