PINTERESTING GIVEAWAY | 3 Will Win A Free *Custom Design* Inspired & Named After You, from Appy Couple!

Oh, hey, happy late Thursday!  Just wondering… do you want to be the inspiration for a wedding app that’s literally named after you?  Not just abstractly based on your style; I’m talking NAMED. AFTER. YOU.  … you’re listening?  Cool.

Do you wanna win it by looking for pretty stuff on Pinterest (or creating an inspiration board without it, totes your call)?  I’m 99% sure you said yes.

Great.  LET’S DO IT. 

Now, I do hope you’re in the mood for another killer giveaway from Appy Couple AND a story, and not in that order, because here’s what happened to Alison at the market today.  {Fun Tip: even though there’s no rush, if you want me to shut up and just get started with giveaway, skip down to the next section, aptly titled “Giveaway Time!”}

I call this, “SuperMoon.”

I went to my local food shop earlier today and picked out a couple of things.  When I went up to pay, the young lady at the register and I started chatting, which we do every time, naturally.  She asked me if I’d like to sample a chocolate brownie and pointed to the cup sitting atop the counter.  I responded, “ahh, no hehe thanks.  I can’t do chocolate this early in the morning.”  <== weird thing to say for more than just the reason I did today.

She looked at me funny.  Then said:

“Oh.  Well, you know it’s the afternoon, right?”

I guess I didn’t know that.  HOW DID I NOT KNOW THAT.

I said… “oh, ‘course, yep.  thanks though,” with a smile.  And I grabbed the few items I’d just purchased in the time it had taken me to go from a nice girl who shops the store to the total weirdo who can’t tell her mornings from her afternoons.  That’s a characteristic shared with meth addicts you know.

But wait there’s more.  So you know how I grabbed those items?  I did it with my bare hands.  Meaning I didn’t wait for her to hand me the receipt, or hand me a pen for my signature, OR bag the groceries.  Instead I scooped them off the counter seconds after I handed her my credit card.  NOT WEIRD AT ALL.

She goes: “… Do you need a bag for those?”

Now this is one of those times in life, when you’ve got a choice to make: you can either come clean about the fact that you’re clearly insane today, or you can act like you totally meant to do that.

Inside: “YES PLEASE.”  Spoken words: “Oh, no I’m good.”

For some reason my instinct is to fake having meant to grab all of my groceries up into my bosom, instead of just to admit that this is as crazy as it looks and that yes I need that bag please hand it over.

Wanting to prove I’m not actually this crazy normally, I added more conversation.  Usually a bad idea, but when a sane person is feeling like she’s coming off a little crazy, the only thing that makes any sense is to say more words to prove she’s not.

“Do you hear that jack hammering going on all day?” I said.

“Uhh I don’t, no!?  Is there jack hammering?!”

Yeah!  It’s so crazy.  It’ll drive you crazy!”

… Clearly.

And that wraps up Installment # 2 of an unknown-number-of-parts series called, MONTHS-LONG CONSTRUCTION & YOU: “When the Jack Hammering Outside Your Window Stops Being Just Sound & Starts to Impact Your Behavior and Core Beliefs.”

Or maybe it’s just a latent impact of the Supermoon?  Nah it’s the jack hammering.  I am going loco.

What’s that?  Oh, you want me to STFU and stop it with these idiot stories and just tell you about the giveaway already?  Oh, ok sure.  I’m sorry.  I’m sorry about that.

Ok, SO!  The Appy Couple post and free invitation code we brought to you last week turned out to go pretty well, since we completely ran out, you guys swiped ‘em up so fast!  Atta peeps!  Soooo, what does this mean?

Another giveaway!  DOY.  Appy Couple is doing another killer giveaway with us, and clearly the supermoon has had an effect on THEM, but in a crazy good way, because they are kind of doing THE COOLEST + MOST CREATIVE THING EVER:


What You Have to Do:

1) Let us know in a comment below that you think you wanna enter this giveaway (duh)

2) All that’s left to do is create your inspiration board!  Aka have a lot of fun. :)  How to do it: I recommend going to Pinterest, being sure to follow The Knotty Bride where we hang out on Pinterest, and THEN going forth and gathering up all the inspiration you can find that just screams YOU, and putting all of it onto a pinboard!  Well I mean not literally; don’t fill up the pinboard with different ways to scream the word “you.”  Duh.  Wait why am I even explaining this to you like you’re a bunch of toddlers.  Obviously you get it.

Where to Send Your Pinterest Pinboard or Inspiration Board: Send the link to your Pinterest board (or send your inspiration board image made using something other than Pinterest) to –>, and then three will be chosen.  The three (3) most interesting and inventive will receive their own Appy Couple App design, named after them, and added to the design catalog!  HUGE!  So seriously, get excited, because THAT’S awesome.  Oh, and of course, if you’re one of the three winning submissions, you’ll get Appy Couple for FREE. :)


…… did you hear me, I said naaaaaamed after you!!!!!  I’m sorry, I just can’t get over this.  These are the things that excite me in this world.

Deadline: Send links or images before May 15 to:

^ keep that deadline in mind, y’all!

Ok, have fun creating/submitting your perfect pin board!

And hope you didn’t totally effing hate my ridiculous story.  Because WTF, me.

xoxo!  - Alison

P.S. – I took this screen shot of TKB’s account on Pinterest to use in the lead image, and then I was about to put it into this post in full when I realized the word “whore” was right smack in the middle.  Not planned.  Including it anyway.

Best of luck winning, my friendlies!
