Where Whine Meets Wine


on April 22, 2011

So when I see contests, I usually just skip over them. But lately, I have found myself inundated with requests to “vote for me for this,” “vote for my kid for that,” “like my facebook page so I can hit 555,” etc. And I do it! If it’s for someone I know (whether in real life or in the internet world), I always do it! I am a big fan and supporter of community. Of being a pillar of support for those we are in contact with, no matter how trivial it may seem. Which is why, I’m a little ashamed of how shamless this plea is…or maybe to say I’m a little ashamed of how unashamed I am, would be more accurate. Either way.

We recently went to get out family pictures taken (I have a blog post planned out to tell you all about this event!) and when we went back to view the pictures, we were asked to sign a waiver so they could use our children’s photos in their in-studio (along with their world-wide combined studios) photo contest. I’d looked at their site a few days ago and didn’t see any pictures of my kids, but didn’t think anything of it. Well, last night I looked and saw their beautiful faces!! Unfortunately, before I had a chance to really look into the contest, littlest E woke up and made it apparent that he was only going to sleep if I was also going to sleep.

The unfortunate part of this contest is that you can only vote once, period. So now I’m stuck feeling like I’ve chosen one kid over the other, even unknowingly. Boo! Although, it turns out that if you have more than one browser then you can vote more times (three cheers for loopholes!!) So here it is, my shameless (of shameful, depending on your point of view) …please go and vote!!

You can vote by clicking on the photo of choice or by going here. (Please vote for one of my kids) Thank you!!
