Wouldja, Couldja, Do You Wanna Vote For Me?

Alright, I’m not so thrilled about doing this, but I’m going to shamelessly plug my photo that I have entered into a Facebook/Rayovac Photo Contest.

This year was my first time, without ANY kids going to Valleyfair. I went with a co-worker and her daughters & friends. Let me start off by saying, I’m not used to riding these rides anymore.

My role in the last 10 yrs is to watch the kids go on rides and ride some of the mellower rides. My tummy isn’t used to all the craziness of some of the adult rides.

Honestly, before we rode the first ride, I thought I was going to die. I was going to have a heart attack right then and there. No, you DON’T understand, I’m serious. I was having a mini panic attack and hid it VERY well…with humor. I’ve never had a panic attack in front of other people so I think my fear of wetting embarrassing myself in front of my co-worker kept me in check.

DSC03712The Riptide is amazing. It spins you around head over feet. People are sitting in a row behind us, too. Getting in the row in front was the best because you see that water coming at us? It totally drenches you!! The people in the row behind us didn’t get the same drenching on their side. Then they spin you around really fast like you’re spin drying! It was scary awesome!

If you could’ve taken my pulse, it would’ve been off the charts! We got on that first roller coaster and I didn’t stop screaming for the next 11 hours.

DSC03721My co-worker laughed her butt off while I screamed myself hoarse! And I’ve signed myself up to go again…maybe. If a group of my co-workers go, I may be going again. We shall see. Just the thought of it makes me anxious.

Anyhow, I entered one of the photos from our day there to a Rayovac Summer Photo Contest. Voting started today for my category and I’d really love some votes.

You can vote everyday if you remember! Do you have friends 18 and over and live in the US? Ask them to vote! I would love to win, even in my category. I’d have to be the grand prize winner to win the camera. A girl can dream, right?!

Here’s the link to my photo to vote.



I super appreciate the time it takes to go vote!! I dig ya. My co-worker is in the middle.

I posted this first at my Woven by Words site.


  1. Hi, Mimi;

    I'll try to vote for you again. I did get your facebook request but I'm computer challenged. I couldn't get it to work or even get to your picture. I'll do it friend. Maybe I'll get my daughter to help me this time.

    Nora :D
