Luck? Be a Lady, Would You?

I’ve been told matching double digits is lucky.

You know…like 22, 44, 66.

Well it’s 2011.  The year?  is ’11.

I decided when the clock struck midnight and 2010 was gone that this WAS going to be a lucky year.

Also?  In 11 days I turn 33.

Luck is all over that, right?

Well, I am going to totally push that luck.

I have mentioned that I am trying GOING to go to BlogHer in August.  It is a pricey trip.  I have been busting my writing hump to earn some coins to add to the jar…you remember the jar, yes?

throwing in any dollars I can find!

Cort took the jar idea one step further…because he knows that his wife is a visual learner and information processor…and created this for me:

that is a looong way to the top!

So my first Luck Button that I am pressing is the Mom Central grant contest.  You can vote for me to be in the running for a $2,000 grant by voting for me every 24 hours here.  You can also read my proposal there for what I would use the money for.

The other Luck Button I have started pushing has really nothing to do with blogging.  It has all to do with me wanting something beautiful for us.

That’s right, I entered Eddie in a photo contest.  The pictures with the Top Ten votes get put up in front of a panel of judges to possibly win the awesomest piece of art EVER.

This is the pictured I entered…

VOTE FOR ME!

It’s number 94 in the line up on the Modern Bird facebook fan page.  And yes, the lovely Missy took this picture!

What do you think?  Is ’11 going to be a lucky year for us?  It’s proven itself so far with job news for Cortney and bloggy love for me!

Will you help push Luck along for us?
