Help A Chick Out?

Hi, all!

Long time, no post. I know, I know.

Things have been pretty rough around here, and just when you'd think they couldn't get any rougher, they usually do. That being said, I figured all of you wouldn't be interested in all the ways I've been jazzing up Ramen noodles, hot dogs, and bologna, so I've let my blog go until I have something worthwhile to blog about. Believe me when I say I haven't forgotten about my blog or my readers, and I miss it dearly.

And now, the reason for this brief message...

This year, I carved three pumpkins for Halloween: a Death Star pumpkin, a Phineas and Ferb themed pumpkin featuring Perry the Platypus with cameos from Phineas and Ferb, and a Nightmare Before Christmas themed pumpkin featuring Jack Skellington. I entered them in a contest at Brickfish, with the first prize being a $500 gift card. The only catch is I need enough votes to make it to the top 5 to even be considered for the gift card. A $500 gift card may not seem like much to some, but for us, we would feel like Rockafellers. We could catch up on our bills and maybe even afford a nice dinner since my hubby and I weren't able to celebrate our anniversary this year and likely won't be celebrating Christmas as well.

All it takes is one click to vote--there is no sign up required. And I would really appreciate all the help I can get. I spent a lot of time on these pumpkins, particularly the Death Star pumpkin, which seems to be doing the best in this contest.

Oh yeah, and did I mention your votes would be benefiting my little helper, as well? Here's Chloe attempting to nom a little pumpkin...

I hope you'll excuse this little bit of spamming, but it's for a good cause, I promise. And hopefully, my luck will change soon enough and I'll be back to post about better, more delicious things.

Thank you all in advance for your help, and I hope to be back soon.
