"Favorite Things" CONTEST

So I got this idea from one of the blogs I stalk....and thought it would be fun! I have been wanting to do some kind of contest to get my readers involved so I hope you like this one!! ANYONE can participate no matter where you live!! Here goes!!

How many photos do you have of your kids smiling? How many do you have of them laughing? If you're like me, you have a LOT! But what are they so happy about? Why are they laughing? How often do you take pictures of the THINGS that make them happy?

So here is the contest:

The Objective
: Shoot your kiddos and their favorite things! Make a list of 5-10 things and take a photo of each one on your list!

The Rules : You can submit anywhere from 5 to 10 photos per child. No more, no less! Your kiddos can be of ANY age (teeny babies and moody teenagers have favorite things, too!) and they HAVE to be in the photos in some way (even if it's just their hands or feet!) Email your images to

What to submit : Your photos and a brief description of each "favorite thing" pictured in them. Your kiddos first names and ages. Your name and the city/state/country you live in.

Sunday, March 1st at Midnight!

The Prize : A super cute camera strap! (may not be this exact one)
This super cute camera strap by vmjess on is 58 inches long, and is adjustable to a longer 64 inches or shorter 52- long enough to be work across your body if you like. The part that loops through the camera is 1/2 inch wide- the widest part of the strap is 2 inches. Each strap is unique- but always fresh and fun.

Here is an example of my kids:

Isaac (my 20 month old) LOVES:
1. His Cars
2. His blanket
3. Putting things on his head: hats, sunglasses
4. Playing outside
5: Elmo

Hadleigh (my 19 month old) LOVES:
1. Sleeping
2. Her blanket and mimi (aka: pacifier)
3. Playing outside
4. Eating
5. Taking a bath

I am going to try to get at least 1 good photo of each of these things in the next week! Maybe I will create a mini book of all these things that I can add to over the years and see how their "FAVORITE THINGS" change!! Keep your eyes on this blog and I will start posting my photos as I get them!!

  1. Very cute idea! I will have to see if I can get at least 5 by march. By the do yo get a picture of the four of you? Are you setting it up somewhere or do you have someone else taking the picture? Either way, they always look so good!
