Finding Favor in Penguins!

Adam spent 2 years on a Coast Guard Polar Icebreaker that spent 6 months out of the year in Antarctica! It was on the way back from one of these trips that the ship make a port call in Hawaii, and he came to stay with me for the week. Needless to say, Antarctica is a special thing for him, and for us. So while he'll be in a uniform and not a penguin suit I thought some penguins details could be fun. (I'm incorporating a little bit of Antarctica in an unusual tradition during the ceremony.... but you'll have to keep stalking my blog to find out what!) I just came across these from a posting on It's A Jamie Thing... (a great blog I'll feature in my Blog Bliss here soon!), and I love 'em!

How cute is that?!!

And how cute is he? =) Yup, thats my fiance and a couple of inquisitive penguins in Antarctica. (Image courtesy of another Coastie aboard Polar Star)

I suppose I'll add this new idea to the list of wedding ironies - Tropical style wedding, with penguin accents!! Anyone else going against their own grain to achieve personality?

Hello! I'm so happy you liked the penguins I just blogged about, aren't they great!? :) I fell in LOVE when I saw them...and what a great idea for you both to use for your wedding!

I appreciate the link back, but will you please change the name of the link to "It's A Jaime Thing"? Right now it says another blog, but it's not their link. Thank you!!! Just so nobody gets confused. :)

Happy planning, can't wait to see more ways of how you incorporate everything into your wedding, I'm sure it will be amazing!!! :)

Michelle, thanks so much for coming over to my blog and commenting! I am honored and excited to be an addition to your daily stalkings. I must admit that I have been seeking out a few more Christ honoring brides to be. I enjoy reading other blogs for sure and am not "down" on them in any way. I am just also happy to read people's blogs whose beliefs are similar to mine. We're leaving town so I'll cut this short but I just wanted to say we love penguins too! Our first date was to the Chicago Aquarium! :) Kelly
