Our first breakfast of 2012 was waffles…
The kids loved it.
Me? I went for the egg sandwich.
My first activity after making breakfast in 2012 was laundry.
So. Much. Laundry. You don’t do it for 2 days and all of a sudden, it feels like you’re doing laundry for the entire neighborhood. The plus side is that I got some new fabric softener and our clothes smell so good.
First hair do’s for the kids?
This girl has so much hair and she hates having it brushed. I’ll walk by her with a brush and she’ll whimper. I’d like to just say that I am gentle when I brush her hair…it doesn’t hurt her. But she thinks it does. Anyway, the point is that she has a messy bun for most days. Maybe 2012 will be the year of Alice’s first haircut. Or maybe it’ll be the year that mama stops being lazy and get up 10 minutes earlier so Alice’s hair looks great. We’ll see.
And this is the best first of all….and this isn’t just a first for 2012, it’s a first for my blog in the history of Fairy Wings and Dinosaurs. I’m doing a giveaway.
Yep, someone is going to get something for free. Not just something dinky and cheap that I had left over from Christmas. No, no.
One lucky commenter will win this:
Oh, yes, my friends. A 16×20 (sixteen by twenty!!!) frame from Artsy Couture.
If you’re on Pinterest, I bet you have seen the do-it-yourself modge-podge photos on wooden blocks that kind of resemble this. This is not a do-it-yourself modge podge Pinterest craft. Their frames are beautiful. They are beautiful in an 8×10 size, but absolutely STUNNING in 16×20.
As a photographer, I have access to lots of cool companies that offer cool products. Lots of them are the same, though. You can buy canvas from x, y, or z. Books from them, those, or these. SO many choices for similar products (and I’m pretty loyal to a select few companies). But Artsy Couture specializes in unique, adorable products…perfect for my clients.
This is what you have to do —
– Make sure you “follow” my blog
– Comment here, telling me (and all my readers, duh) what you’re most exciting goal, resolution, activity, trip, event, etc. is for 2012.
This would be mine:
“Oh my gosh, your blog is the best on the internet. You’re kids are the most gorgeous children I’ve ever seen in my entire life. And you’re so fashion. And hilarious. And talented. I am going to tell all my friends to check out your blog because it’s the best! I’m most excited for 2012 because I’m going on a 3 week long vacation to tour islands in the caribbean, flying 1st class and staying in private, super swanky hotels. With all my super awesome friends.”
haha I crack myself up. But seriously, leave me a comment telling me about your most exciting 2012 plans and you will get a chance to win a 16×20 Artsy Couture frame that will completely make your room.
(Here’s a plus: if you’re a client of mine, I’ll even throw in a 16×20 print from our session)
Oh, and pass it on. On Thursday, I’ll choose a winner.
