our blog award

September 23rd, 2010

We were surprised to receive an unexpected weighty package in the mail today. Strange, I thought, I don’t remember ordering anything. Low and behold aisle dash delivered as promised–we got our Waterford crystal award! Keep in mind that it’s not your traditional award like a plaque, medal, or statue but it’s just as nice and fancy.

Here’s the box itself. Thick and sturdy!

The opening of the award box–feels just like Christmas!!

VOILA! Presenting our award, errr–bowl, if you may.

Yup, it’s an heirloom crystal bowl with an engraving on the side. In case you can’t read the tiny print it says:

Best Real Bride’s Blog
Thao & Robert – Our Wedding Blog

Here is a stock image of the bowl. It’s valued at about $300. Not too shabby for an amateur blogger’s award eh? Especially for doing something that was completely for fun.
