Day 14: Let's Get Ready to Rumbuuuuul!

2011 Earnings so far: $1,625
Toady’s contest:  Caribbean Travel and Life Magazine: St. Lucia Vacation
Prize:  A vacay to the Jade Mountain resort in St. Lucia
Rules:  Enter a brief one liner about why you need to put down your smart phone and leave your laptop go to on this getaway.   There are no TVs or phones in the rooms of this resort.    Instead what you look at is the ocean and mountains.  In fact there is a completely missing wall so you're fully immersed in the environment. It's spectacular.  
Onto the Main event

  Jazzhands The Snowman              VS                  The Michigan Ice Storm

This is the ultimate winter photo contest showdown between  my snowman and the Ansel Adams-esque Michigan Icescape submitted by Jessica Ice-Bergmann Lettuce (that's her clever on-line vegetable screen name)  Well I am ready to fight for this title belt and Salad Shooter down.  
Over the last 36 hours, I have been feverishly trying to collect votes to win this  photo contest on Facebook (luckily I don't have a husband and can order in food, so I didn't have to leave the house and there was no one to comment that I should probably step away from the computer)

 Up until yesterday, Ms. Lettuce had a strong lead with 88 votes.  Jazzhands slid past that in the wee hours of the night.  Lettuce woke to a surprise that someone had skidded by her ice patch.  That’s when she started picking up steam.  Since this afternoon, she has upped her votes to 144.  I’m close behind with 133.  There’s 24 hours left to go.  She’s fierce and on a mission to win.  But two can play at this game.  Lettuce see who’s fiercerrrrr….

So I still need help voting.  It’s super easy to do on Facebook. Here’s how:

American Idol Runner Up Justin Guarini

  1. I saw Nancy Kerrigan skate on "Splice" at Disney World. It's a plastic form of ice. Regardless to say it didn't work well. When asked by a child if she ever had an embarrassing fall, and how did she get over that, she said "No, that never really happened." She also said her favorite food to make was pasta because that was the only food she knew how to make.

  2. AHHHHH!!! the suspense is KILLING me, and i just snowboarded all day yesterday, so honey, i am on my last leg!!!!!

  3. Sorry it took so long! I just "liked" the image, cause I LOVE your blog. ;o)
