Well, to say that the Round 1 projects blew us away would be the understatement of the year. Guys, I was seriously sitting in our hotel room at our resort in Mexico pouring over them and as each project would hit our inbox, I would gasp and call my husband over to look! He was super nice and pretended to care- I think he thought that would be the best response to get us out on the beach as quickly as possible. Ha! Jess and I are just so thankful that we didn’t have to choose our favorite- the voting was in your hands and you guys picked your favorites as hard as it was.
And here’s the percentage breakdown- it was so, so close in some spots. 1st and 2nd were less than half a percentage point apart and 9th and 10th place were within one percent too. It was a nail biter until the very end! All of these bloggers are Ah-mazing!
