Splash Award

Stephany, who blogs over at Stephany Writes, gave me the Splash Award last week, and I had planned to save it for a rainy day (no pun intended...okay, I intended it) in which I had nothing else to write about. Thanks Stephany!

Well my friends, though the sun is miraculously shining in Williamstown for the first time in weeks (literally), it is in essence a rainy day for yours truly since I have nothing interesting to share with you all today.

Here are the rules of the blog award!:

1. Put the logo up on your blog.
2. Nominate up to 9 blogs which allure, amuse, bewitch, impress or inspire you.
3. Link to your nominees in the post.
4. Let them know that they have been splashed by commenting on their blog. (I usually wait to do this to see if people find it out on their own, and then I know they would have read the blog either way. Muahaha.)
5. Remember to link to the person from whom you received the award.
6. Have FUN.

For this award, in the interest of "having fun" and to be a little different, 'cause that's what I'm all about, I suppose I will find a blog that does each of the adjectives listed above. It will be fun and probably quite awkward:

Alluring blog: Date Girl is alluring in two exactly polar opposite ways: her stories of terrible dates, ones-who-got-away, and the general ups and downs of dating were hilarious and, honestly, sometimes scary, but she just got engaged (!), and since we all know I'm obsessed with weddings, I am so excited to see the development of hers.

Amusing blog: Duoly Noted. Melissa is one of the funniest people I've ever "known." Also, really funny and sometimes unfortunately funny things seem to happen to her disproportionately more than other people?

Bewitching blog: lists "bewitching" as enchanting, interesting, fascinating. With that definition, I'm gonna go with Shine Out Loud, because the more graphic her posts get, the more I can't tear my eyes away from them. It is great stuff.

Impressive blog: This is gonna have to go to Cup of JO, though she probably doesn't even know I exist (sniffle...); she posts multiple times a day, is classy, witty and charming, and has about a bajillion followers. Goal of my life.

Inspirational blog: Medical School Mrs., because I basically want to have her exact life in 3 years when L. is in his second year of med school, and she seems like such a sweetheart and great wife.


  1. I'm alluring? I love it! Thank you! And yes I have to say my blog is going to turn into wedding planning central. Glad to hear you'll be ok with that. :-)

  2. Hey Lovely! I left you a little something on my blog :) Check it out!

  3. DG- Haha told you the adjectives would get awkward! But yes, alluring you are.

    KA- Yayyy Thanks so much! You're so sweet! <3

  4. Ps. Thanks so much for the award :) I am honored and I will post it some time soon! I never thought my little blog would be "inspirational" but I'm glad that you think it is. I hope you are having a lovely evening! xo, KA
