the "silly love" photo contest

Sorry, but you cannot enter your photo to this contest anymore. BUT! You can still vote for your favorite "Silly Love" photo by going over to the album on my Facebook fan page and "LIKING" your favorite.


About 6 months ago, I had a "This is Love Photo Contest" on Jen's Love Lessons and it was huge success, with several entries and lots of traffic on my blog and Facebook fan page. And, I think everyone really enjoyed getting their friends to vote for their favorite photos.

Well, I think it's high time for another contest (YAY!).

I decided to title this photo contest "silly love" for two reasons. First, I like to have fun and I think that having fun with your partner (whether that be doing fun things together, laughing on a several-times-a-day basis, or just not taking yourself or life too seriously) is key to any long-term relationship. And second, because my (almost three-year-old) daughter's new favorite phrase is, "You silly, Mommy/Daddy/Brudder." She says it all day long in the cutest little voice that makes you just want to eat her for breakfast. So, since I like to have lots of good fun that is funny (yes, that was a Dr. Suess reference) and since I'm hearing the word "silly" several hundred times a day, it only seemed natural to have a photo contest about having fun in love. Are you interested yet?



Here are the details:
  1. Take a photo (or send me a photo you already have) of something that you think epitomizes  having fun in love. It can be a photo of anything- you and your partner, your kids, your pets, your friends and family, anything!
  2. Email it to me at jenslovelessons {at} gmail {dot} com-- put "Silly Love Photo Contest" in the subject line. Please get your photo to me by March 29, 2012 at 5pm.
  3. I will create an album on my Facebook fan page with all of the submissions on March 30th.
  4. I will then open the album for votes. Anyone will be able to "LIKE" a photo to cast their vote (which means that anyone can vote for as many photos as they want, but they can only vote for each photo once). You can also advertise your photo on your own Facebook page to get more votes (i.e. "likes").
  5. I'll keep the album open for votes until April 13, 2012 at 5pm.
  6. The owner of the photo with the most "likes" will receive a $50 Restaurant.com* gift card!!!
*Restaurant.com is an awesome website where restaurants in your area can offer gift certificates at 15%-60% off their actual value. I will buy a $50 for $25 gift certificate to Restaurant.com and then if you win, you get to go on Restaurant.com and peruse through the restaurants in your area that are offering a $50 for $25 gift card. And don't worry, the selection is pretty decent; especially if you live in a large metropolitan area. In the end, you will receive a $50 gift card to a participating restaurant of your choice.

Sorry, but you can only submit ONE photo to this contest.

Pretty sweet, huh? I think so.

So, get out your camera or start searching through the thousands of pictures on your hard drive for a photo to send me. I'm waiting...

ice loves coco: just entertainment or a lesson about marriage?



I vote the latter. And this is not just because I like the show (which I do).

Based on both my personal and professional opinion, Ice-T and Coco Austin have a pretty incredible partnership. Their E! Channel show (Ice Loves Coco) lets viewers take a peak into their personal life together, which is sometimes crazy, but always filled with love.

Although a lot of people might look at them and think that they're superficial or just a couple of TV stars who are looking for their 15-minutes of fame,
