Happy girls are the prettiest girls


Friday Happiness

Happy Friday night lovelies! Sorry about this going out so late, I just finally sat down to write and it happened to be after 7pm!

I have all sorts of fun stuff to blog about today, so keep reading to find out who WON my Golden Giveaway from last week, see one of my weddings featured on a very well known wedding site, and all sorts of New Year's stuff that I have taken forever to get to. 

First of all, happy blogiversary to Happy Girls are the Prettiest Girls! This little blog turned 2 on New Years Eve, and I happened to let it slip by without so much as a peep. Last year I did a 2011 year in review post to commemorate the first birthday of my blog, but I am a little lazy this year so you're welcome to go back through and read the posts from last year if you want.

This New Year's eve was spent in the company of family, as usual, and was quite nice to lay low, watch movies, eat tons of yummy food, and ring in 2013 together.

I've been thinking a lot about my goals for 2013, and I have a blog planned to really go into depth on that. It wasn't an easy goal setting year like the last 3 years, where I clearly had a goal in mind which I was able to achieve. 2010 was the year of the 5k, 2011 was the year of the sprint triathlon, and 2012 was the year of the half marathon. Knowing I don't want to run a full marathon, there weren't too many options to go with this year.

My last giveaway of 2012 was a popular one, and now I get to crown a winner as my first big act of 2013! Thanks to rafflecopter for making giveaways easy and fun, and congratulations to Julie of Tri-ing to be Athletic for winning the Golden Giveaway!

And now some super exciting news for me, business-wise! I am squee-ing with delight that the beautiful and well know wedding site Style Me Pretty featured a wedding that I had the wonderful pleasure of styling hair for last June! Wendy and David's wedding took place at the Los Altos History Museum, one of my favorite locations. And now I get to use the cute button below!

Want to see some photos from the SMP gallery?! Here ya go, but make sure you click the Style Me Pretty link above to see the whole write up, and leave comments there too! Wendy was absolutely adorable and so fun to work with! There are some gorgeous shots in the gallery on SMP, you HAVE to check those out!
