↑ That shot’s pretty damn exemplary of what I have in store for you in the near future.  If you think that’s hot, just wait ’til you see what I’ve got coming… ↓

A few things on the docket today – including a couple of SERIOUSLY AWESOME ANNOUNCEMENTS – certainly not in order of importance…

First: ladies, great news!  Playboy launched a “work-appropriate” site.  (What????)  It’s great because now men who like staring at naked bodies in magazines don’t have to wait until their lunch breaks or their commutes home to pull it out (the magazine, pull out the magazine…).  Now they can read those articles at work, too!  By the way, I meant to say “men, great news.”

Second: I’m premiering the Proposal Story Series this week!!!!!!  I am extremely excited.  Beyond measure.  It may not show, because I find excessive exclamation a bit childish (even though I just did it above, and I do it all the time) and somewhat boy who cried wolf… but TRUST, I’m over the moon.  You’re gonna LOVE.  Reader-submitted proposal videos, proposal photos (yes, of the actual proposals themselves) and, of course, the incredible, heartwarming, funny, fantastic, tears-will-fly-out-of-your-eyes written accounts of just how it all went down.

Third (and most “wedding porn” related): many of you responded to an innocent little request I tweeted for some majorly rad and especially HOT (but tasteful, of course) boudoir sessions.  Well, you brought your A-games.  I CANNOT WAIT TO SHARE THESE BOUDOIR SESSIONS.  Not to mention the stories behind them, written by the gorgeous brides themselves!

Fourth: is Hanson really back?  I saw some old men singing like them in a pretty ridiculously fun and upbeat music video yesterday.  I coulda sworn it was them.  They’re singing under the name Hanson, and I recognize Isaac… because he’s very unique-looking and just very recognizable.  So I guess it’s them?  Here’s the vid; judge for yourselves.  (Please, no hatemail for posting a Hanson vid on the blog.  This is sort of the first one ever that I feel I can tolerate… even bop to.)  (:

Are you guys excited?  What are you looking forward to more?  Magically delish boudoir hotness or the reader-submitted proposal stories/photos/videos?  Or both?  Or none?  Or whatevs, I don’t care, just show me the pictures?

xoxo!  – Alison

    Way excited for the proposal stories! And I love beautiful boudoir shots!
    And, Hanson never left, a friend in college was obsessed with them and they've still been touring and stuff, even since the mm bop days.

  2. Jen @ Blush Printables on July 27, 2010

    I mmmbopped my way through 7th grade. Taylor? DROOL. I can't believe they made a comeback!

    I can't wait to read the proposal stories! Not sure if you every got mine, I tweeted a link to you. I also want to see the boudoir shots since I have thought about doing them myself. Also, in regards to Hanson, I had a serious obsession with them as a teen, it was sad. They have never really stopped touring though, just not as much publicity as before!!

  4. Ashleigh on July 27, 2010

    Haha – I love that you posted a Hanson video on the same post as “wedding porn” – too funny. How great is that video though? I was prompted to download their new album through iTunes – it's definitely growing on me.

  5. Naomi on July 27, 2010

    Genius I tell you, pure genius! You are going to corner the market on men readers with the boudoir sessions. I cannot wait to read the proposal stories! xoxo

  6. Melissa @ The Loveliest Day on July 27, 2010

    Can't wait to read the proposal stories!!! Plus, I'm a big fan of sexy but tastefully done boudoir sessions.

  7. grace @ the cinderella project on July 27, 2010

    can't wait Alison! and congratulations on the AisleDash nominations!

    OMG! hotness.

  9. hindsightbride on July 27, 2010

    I can't wait to see the proposal videos! I have heard about this, but have never actually seen one done.

    By the bye, I too have a love hate relationship with exclamation points. On the one hand, I find them freeing. I have an academic background and academics will shun the fellow who uses one. One the other hand, I too find them a bit silly. I have an academic background and have been trained to shun the fellow who…

    Anyway, you comment about exclamations points hit home. Thanks!

    Hanson!! So random, but it made me really happy. I have officially outed myself as a nerd to the interweb. Fab.

  11. Brit @ Landlocked Bride on July 27, 2010

    Haha – Hanson's back? I'm still grappling over this.

    And, excited for the proposal stories and boudoir stories – good times!

  12. Kristin Gast on July 27, 2010

    Can't wait for the boudoir shoots. I definitely want to do some for my fiance, but am needing some inspiration!

  13. Alicia and Kyle on July 27, 2010

    I'm not going to lie, the Hanson video made me want to dance, arms flailing about and such. They still have a very disney vibe to them despite the 10 year age increase. Maybe they will work out this time. Sorry, you made me forget all about what your actual post was about!

  14. Bret on July 27, 2010

    Piano Hanson totally kills it. I think Piano Hanson is my favorite Hanson.

    I cannot wait for the proposal stories!

  15. Pam Song on July 27, 2010

    Can't wait to read the proposal stories you've got in store!

    That and yes, they're Hanson. New album just got released. =)

  17. Jennifer Buehrer on August 10, 2011

    WOW> I love that bow!!! such a great look.

    Huh.. Hanson… I have to admit.. My booty was shaking… I think the most important question… Was that Weird AL in the background???? In the red pants? I had to watch it a few times…. Awesome.

  18. Earth Bound Brian on February 5, 2012
