Digital Scrapbook Page of the Week - Wedding Location

Sexy Nerd and I had our wedding at Molii Gardens in Kualoa Ranch on Oahu. You've probably seen it before - it's where many shows and movies, including Lost, Jurrasic Park, and You, Me, & Dupree, have been fiilmed. Due to the shoddy company we'd chosen online (Above Heaven's Gate Weddings with Captain Howie - we do not recommend them!) we nearly switched everything to Turtle Bay at the last minute (less than 24 hours before the ceremony!)

Luckily, everything (mostly) worked out.

You Voted. The Best in Show Is...


Congratulations, Polka Dots and Pizza! After an early day of frantic, Black Friday deal hunting, you're probably fast asleep right now. No sleep for me, thanks to a 3 hour afternoon nap and half a pan of insanely sugary meringue.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for the Best in Show featured blogger this week. If you haven't visited Polka Dots and Pizza yet, you're missing some great ideas, like:

Be sure to stop by Polka Dots and Pizza with your congratulations. See you tomorrow for the Not "Baaad" Sundays linky and another chance to win the Best in Show award!

Gobbles!

If you've never watched my favorite Thanksgiving special, you'll have no idea what our chalkboard door is referring to:

"Gobbles!" - Timmy on SouthPark
(along with Gobbles less-fortunate turkey friends)

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

And Happy Day Before Black Friday! :)

Nominees for the Best in Show Award

I see you there, fellow blogger, admiring my beautiful buttons.

Option #1 (for the competitive, ruthless, claws-out bloggers - my kinda people!)

Option #2 (you're still my people, but I think you're missing out on a chance to have some fun.)

I bet you're thinking to yourself, How can I get one of these beautiful, super-cute, fancy schmancy buttons for my blog? I'll tell you how! Just swing by LambAround each weekend and link your favorite posts to the Not "Baaad" Sundays linky party. Easy peasy!

This week, we have an assortment of do-it-yourself projects and sugary deliciousness. Who gets to take a button this week? These amazing bloggers:

Making Memories - My favorite thing about these Salted Caramel Butter Bars (!) is how easy they are. Not to discourage you from reading LambAround, but if you take a break to go make these, you could be eating them very soon!

Nancy's Couture -  there is a super-easy tutorial on how to make this hat. Really, when I saw the link, I was expecting an Etsy shop. How impressive would it be to make this myself?

Can't Stop Making Things - isn't the image for this recipe just so sweet? If I had the time (and the energy!) I would put all my recipes into this format.

Polka Dots and Pizza - this dresser makeover only cost $10! Just wait until you see the before image.

Inside BruCrew Life - Starbucks inspired cupcakes sound amazing to me, but adding that green straw push these cute treats right into "irresistable" territory.

Dream Big. Stamp Often. - I love how cute this little turkey is.

Langes Fadchen, Faules Madchen - they had me on the name for this post. What tasty treat is this? Oh, just a little something called white chocolate toblerone ice cream and molten lava cakes (OMG!)

Being nominated for an award is just the beginning of the fun. Vote for your favorite blog post (the poll is at the top of this blog) and stop by on Friday to find out who won the customized Best in Show award!

Congratulations to all the Best in Show nominees and GOOD LUCK!

Not "Baaad" Sundays

*Update*
Stupid Vern Yip! I can't believe he gave my Urban Oasis apartment to some guy. Phooey!


Welcome back, my bloggy friends, to the 11th Not "Baaad" Sundays Linky Party! In case you've forgotten, (can't blame you - it's been a looooong week!) there are 3 things that make my Linky special:

1. This Linky is open to all posts that you are proud of. Did you recently post about a great decorating project, craft, or recipe? That's wonderful if you did, but just fine if you didn't. I just want you to link to a post or posts you are proud of.

2. Do you ever find yourself trying not to duplicate posts on blog hops but aren't quite sure what you posted the previous weeks? Problem solved! The Linky from today will return in the future, making it easy to see what you've posted before (and giving you a 2nd chance to visit any great posts you may have missed!)

3. You are competing with other bloggers for the Best in Show award. Nominees are (almost always) announced on Monday and the world (at least, the sliver of world that visits LambAround) will vote for their favorite linked blog post.

Doesn't this sound like fun? Of course, I do ask that you link directly to your post and include a photo from that post, not just your blog logo. And if you could post my Not "Baaad" Sundays button or at least a link with your post, I'll love you forever! I know I can count on you to get the word out and help make Not "Baaad" Sundays a success! Thanks so, so much everyone!






See you Monday for the announcement of the Best in Show nominees! Good luck!

Best in Show - And the Winner is...

With a million votes, (well, maybe not quite a million, but certainly a lot) this week's Best in Show award goes to the fabulous Three Boys!

Congratulations to the winner! I hope everyone will check out her blog. You'll find nifty posts like:

(Really, with a name like this, how can you resist?)

Thanks to everyone for playing! See you tomorrow for the Not "Baaad" Sundays linky party!

An Ugly Scientist

Sexy Nerd and I recently discovered the awesomeness of The Office. The great thing about having never seen an episode until well into the series is that we have dozens of new episodes recorded. Last night, we watched the episode where Stanley is being disrespectful to Michael, asking "Did I stutter?" during an office meeting. In this episode, Pam has to wear her glasses after forgetting to bring her contact solution to a friend's house.

In other words, no, there will be no photos of myself wearing my new glasses today.

Courtesy of theofficequotes.com:

Michael Scott: Alright everybody-- [noticing Pam's glasses] Oh. My. God. Pam. Those make you look so ugly. Uhh, Pam in order to get hotter you take the glasses off. You're moving in the wrong direction.
Pam Beesly: I don't have my contacts--
Michael Scott: Dah, dah, dah. I can't even hear you. It's just noise coming out of an ugly scientist.


Yeah, ummmm...I like being able to see more than a foot away, but the glasses are not working for me.

What's that? You want to see my new glasses anyway? Fine.

To be fair, I am wearing my glasses in this photo.

Sexy Nerd likes my glasses. He says I look like a librarian.

Huh.

*Update*
Fine. If you really must see me in all my dorky splendor, a blog post where I'm actually wearing my glasses on my face can be found here.

A Couple of Wimps

Last night, Sexy Nerd and I were talking about the scariest movie we have ever seen together. It was a while back and, although it was good, it really creeped us both out! If you're feeling brave, here it is:


Eeeeep!
 
Sure, here it looks like your typical PG, family friendly movie. That's what they want you to think. Even the Coraline website is spooky!

Best in Show Nominees (Finally!)

This week, there were so many wonderful blogs linked up to the Not "Baaad" Sundays Linky that I had trouble whittling down a list of Best in Show nominees.

Also, I was/am feeling lazy.

For you though, my bloggy buddies, I have fought my sleepy, do-nothing-but-lounge-around-in-my-jammies mood long enough (just barely long enough) to announce my top picks. If your blog post was selected, I have 2 cute button choices for you:

 And, in my best Academy Awards voice, the nominees are:








Steep competition! The winner will be announced on Friday morning (I'm hoping to have all this laziness out of my system by then). Good luck!

Sooooo Lazy!

Best in Show nominees?

Yaaaaawn!

I've chosen the nominees and was going to post them this morning before work. Then, I was going to post them first thing after work. Then, I was going to post them right after I got home from picking up my glasses (my first pair of glasses ever!)

The nominees will be announced Tuesday morning...I'm fairly certain ;)

On a side note, I never realized just how horrible my vision was. I finally made an eye appointment after Sexy Nerd said he wasn't going to read the McDonalds menu to me anymore. Now that I can see, I can't believe I didn't get glasses sooner. I just looked out our bedroom window and the lights from the city are hundreds of individial little dots, not just a blur of white and yellow like they've always been. Amazing.

On another side note, a photo with my fancy new glasses (J. Lo brand - aren't I cool?) may or may not be coming soon. I'm still coming to terms with my nerdy look (not to mention that my nose looks huge with glasses!)

Goodnight, my bloggy friends!

Not "Baaad" Sundays #10

2. Do you ever find yourself trying not to duplicate posts on blog hops but aren't quite sure what you posted the previous weeks? Problem solved! Today's Linky will be back, making it easy to see what you posted last time (and giving you a 2nd chance to visit any great posts you may have missed!)

Doesn't this sound like fun? Of course, I do ask that you link directly to your post and include a photo from that post, not just your blog logo.

Winner of Best in Show

The winner of this week's best in show award is...

Pica and Biscuit are eagerly awaiting the announcement of the winners name (or, perhaps, they are eagerly awaiting the moment when I get the camera out of their faces and let them get back to sleep)

...actually 2 winners! 
Congratulations to While He Was Napping and North Dakota Kitchen, who tied with 9 votes each. You bloggers have made history with the first LambAround tie ever (you know, in the entire 3 weeks I've been doing this award!)

Here is a sample of all the awesomeness you will find when you visit these 2 blogs:

Adorable hair clips at While He Was Napping!

Individual pies in jars at North Dakota Kitchen!

Have a happy Friday, everyone!

Sexy Nerd Made Cookies!

Here they are in the cookie dough stage:


Oh wait, that is a photo of them fully baked. Hmmmm...

(Yes, it is fun harassing Sexy Nerd! Besides, considering that he made about 2 dozen of these and right now, less than 4 hours later, they are ALL GONE, I'm sure he knows I'm just teasing him.)

The recipe may or may not be coming soon. I asked Sexy Nerd how he made them and he said "I dunno". So I asked if he used a recipe or just made something up. "I dunno," he said again. To which I, of course, wanted to say  "YOU DAMN WELL KNOW WHETHER OR NOT YOU USED A RECIPE, YOU CRAZY ASS NERD!"


Whoops, that wasn't a very nice thing to write. Must be the sugar talking.

Not "Baaad" Sundays - Come Link Up!

It's time for another fun weekend of blog hopping! As always, the Linky from last Sunday is back, making it easy not to accidentally repeat the same post as before (and making it easy to visit any fabulous links you may have missed while you were busy trick-or-treating).
THE RULES (so serious!)
  1. This Linky is open to all posts that you are proud of, whether it is a creative project, an impressive photo, or an interesting story.
  2. Please link directly to your post, not just your general blog, and include a post-related photo.
  3. You don't want to be the grump at the party who doesn't mingle, so please visit at least two other party guests and let them know you found them through LambAround. I saw a lot of these comments while browsing through the entries this week. Thank you so much to everyone who plays nice! :)
And, of course, I'd love it if you post the Not "Baaad" Sundays button.







Be sure to come back Monday morning, when I will be announcing the nominees for Best in Show!

Winner of Best in Show

Thank you so much to all the fabulous bloggers who participate in Not "Baaad" Sundays every week. I always find wonderful posts that I would otherwise have missed!

The votes have been tallied (pretty easy since Google does this for me!) and the award goes to the blogger who posted this tasty recipe:


It's the super-talented blogger at A Whisk and a Prayer!

Congratulations! And, everyone else, you might want to visit the winner's blog - there is a recipe for Double Chocolate M&M Cookies! Not a bad way to use up some of your Halloween candy.

See you tomorrow afternoon for the Not "Baaad" Sundays linky and another shot at the Best in Show award!
