I entered a photo in the "5 Minutes for Mom Summer Photo Contest" and I found out today that I'm a finalist! WOO HOO!!! There were over 400 entries and they chose 20. And I'm one of them. That's awesome.
The prize is $500. Holy cow. That would make me one happy gal. It's sponsored by Skinny Cow. Again, holy cow. Those folks make some yummy stuff.
I need you to vote for me!!! PLEASE!
Go to this link and scroll down to where you see the pictures. My picture is listed as "3GirlsMom" It's #7 and is this picture of Mary Emma hitting a softball. The theme of the contest is Summer Fun. There are some awesome pictures in the finals and I'm glad to be a part of them.
The contest will end Friday, August 29th at 3:00 PM. So you've got plenty of time to vote. Multiple times. Like a lot of times. Bunches. Daily. Hourly. Minutely. Secondly. Ok, maybe not secondly, because you DO have lives. But any of the other time spans would be nice. Thankyouverymuch.
So head on over there and vote. And next time you're in the grocery store, pick up some Skinny Cow stuff. You will be happy and your waistline will stay small. Or, in my case, your waistline won't get any larger. I consider that a success.
Oh, if there are any of you techy people who would be willing to make me a button that I can post on my sidebar that'll send people over to vote, I would be so greatly appreciative. You know, my techy skills are pretty comical. I'm impressed that I even know what a sidebar is, if that tells you anything. Sad. In return, i'll gladly quote any line from the movie Space Camp, which was my favorite movie in 1986, for you. I can still remember every line. Every single one. I'm all full of useless information like that. And since I'm thinking about it, I might or might not get out my Space Camp VHS tape and re-live the wonder that is Joaquin Phoenix (known by his earthy name, Leaf, back then) as a 12 year old geek who's best friend is a robot. Ahh, cinematography at its finest. NetFlix it.
