hello, hi

remember how I was going to have a back to school giveaway? welp, school has started. Is the hype over? Do you still want it? {I kinda still want to do it....}

I have this bad habit of biting off more than I can chew.
I'll probably kill myself by overdoing life.
My tombstone will say

here lies Claire
the girl who did too much

not that I accomplish a whole lot (just ask my pile of dishes, undone homework, and under-kissed husband). But I want to do too many things. sigh...it's my downfall in life and I'm afraid I'm not willing to give it up. which means this blog will never have a constant stream of posts and will often have yet-to-be-fulfilled promises. I hope you can deal.

so giveaway?
circle yes or no
(if you fight yes for the giveaway and I get enough interest to do it, I'll count all the comments from this post as an extra entry! thats a hecka deal people)

hope you are having a lovely thursday evening :)

big kiss, little kiss, little hug

p.s. to my dear friend who said "you can't take a bad picture!" if these photos don't prove you wrong, I don't know what will....

seriously, I have the worst luck with ID cards. I'd share more, but I'm pretty sure I burned my highschool/jr high IDs. and is it just me or did they zoom up in my grill for my drivers license? when I compare it to others, my head is twice theirs in size...


  1. YES do a giveaway! And honestly, I think you look great in your pictures! You are so pretty I don't think you could look bad in them. :)

  2. Giveaway! And I'm a bite off more than I can chew type of person too. Especially when it comes to blogging.

  3. I vote that you still do a giveaway! I don't know anyone who absolutely loves their school ID picture, so you're not alone. :)

  4. Um if this giveaway is in anyway resembling a family shoot, do it! I could use some new family pictures since the little man joined our family :) and the only thing worse than having a bad ID picture is having a good one and then losing it. Happened to me. Then I took a really bad one that I kept until graduation. Lame!

  5. I don't know what the giveaway is, but yay for free things! do it. and I think you look cute in your pictures! my IDs on the other hand...now those are scary.

  6. Mommy loves your big head up-in-your-grill pic. At least you don't look like an alien (anymore).

    Oh, and big yes to the give-away!

  7. I just got a new license and the top of my head is cut off. How's that for zoomed-in? Please do a give-away!

  8. i feel the same way about my drivers license! it's as if they wanted to be able to count every last zit on my face. and giveaway? is that even a question?! of course we want your giveaway!

  9. Of course we would love your giveaway girl! And you are amazing to do so much. I am in the same boat. I LOVE Elder Uchtdorf's talk about simplifying and read it so often! http://lds.org/general-conference/2010/10/of-things-that-matter-most?lang=eng

  10. Do the give-away. I love your BYU ID picture. It shows so much personality. It reminds me so much of your mom in our younger days.
