Announcing: The Random Blog Awards

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?

  4. I love this post! And not just because I won, of course :) This is a neat idea.
    And, I DO try to prioritize taste over everything else. Those sugar cookies were actually the most complicated thing I've made in a year or so.

  5. I AM SO HONORED. WHERE DO I BEGIN.

    I love this post!! I also cracked up when you mentioned yourself as funniest blogger. It's good when you crack yourself up. That's definitely something I understand ;)

    Obligatory Newlywed Blog really is a genius blog name.

  7. This is a great idea! I was going to do a 'my top blogs' of 2013 (actually, I already have it drafted) but I actually might steal this idea, as it is must more fun! You don't mind, do ya?

    I'm going to come back and check some of these blogs out when I have more time, I am trying to reply to people's comments and I keep getting WAYYY distracted, haha!

  14. Rachel, I'm so humbled and honored. I've never considered myself a big blogger, but I'm incredibly flattered that you do. I try so hard to make it seem like I'm talking one-on-one to you and respond as often as I can anytime someone asks something or says something that's truly nice and supportive. I'm so glad you see it. This means a lot to me, and made me smile a big-jolly smile today. You are brightening my day. I appreciate you... thanks again!
