Yes You Can! A little election for you.
I know I said I wouldn't post until Monday because my hubby and big kids finally came home after a week away with the youth group, so I guess I LIED.
I didn't lie, really. It's just that now they are all asleep like a pack of dogs, with drool coming out of their mouths and it's only 4:20 pm on Saturday. So...
I thought this would be a chance to ask you something.
Answer me, pretty please.
Lately we've been hearing a lot about change.
Would you exercise your constitutional rights and vote?
Vote for a change?
In my profile picture?
Yes We Can!
We can do it!
Because this picture is looking a little cheesy to me. And I'm tired of it.
So I would really value your opinion.
Would you answer in the comments section and tell me which one of the following you think I should pick to replace it?
And even if you're shy, you can comment as anonymous. That'd be fine with me, and I promise I won't track you down and take your name.
Now, in gathering a selection together of six options for you to choose from, keep in mind what I am going for here. I want something fun, something that says Come on Over And Visit with Me--There's no telling what wonders await you! (Sorry, I got tired of all those capital letters by the end.)
Here are the choices:
CHOICE NUMBER ONE: (ah, the caps lock bar)
I like this one, partly because in my dreams I look like that, and partly because it would embarrass my kids. Also it's appropriate because I will always be pinching pennies unless Oprah reads that year old issue of The New York Times Book Review and decides to take a look-see at French By Heart and falls in love. I got bored today with all this snoozing, found an old underwear ad, and doctored it up a little. I used a magic marker to make polka dots, because Sam came in a covered his eyes and said, "Ooh Mom! That's disgusting! You in your underwear!" So I turned it into a bathing suit. Kind of. So that's your first option.
CHOICE NUMBER TWO:
I love vintage ads, and this lady sure looks enthusiastic. She does scare me a little, but I kind of like that.
CHOICE NUMBER THREE:
I like this because my kids gave it to me for Christmas one year and it's part of my blog banner. Plus with the airplanes and the globe it's kind of appropriate for a former expat like me. Also I just love elephants.
CHOICE NUMBER FOUR:
It's me, but it's not me. Though I would like to be the queen of the house.
This is the only real bathing suit shot I will ever post of myself. Because it's gone downhill since then.
And last but not least,
Remember my 80's perm and my toothbrush? This one is kind of funny and weird. Weird is good!
So there you have it!
I await your opinion!
Though I reserve the right to completely ignore it if I decide to!
Because YES I CAN!
Thanks for voting!
