3rd Annual Christmas Card Post + a GIVEAWAY!

Monday, October 8, 2012

It's that time of year again!  For the past two years, I've sent out Christmas cards featuring my firstborn child, Lilly.  (See here and here.)

2011 - Friends

2011 - Family (it felt weird to send my friends a solo shot of myself)


I've decided to do a little something different this year: assuming the photo turns out like I'm hoping, I'll be making an appearance on the cards this year!  While I would normally show you the designs I'm considering, since I'm pretty sure which card I'm going to order, I don't want to spoil the surprise of those of you who are on my Christmas card list.  

The past two years, I've always forgotten to take a photo ahead of time and end up taking one of Lilly by herself the night I order the cards.  Whoops.  This year, though, I was contacted by Shutterfly way in advance of my usual last-minute ordering.  They shared with me an opportunity for one of my lucky readers to win a $50 off coupon of her order of Christmas Cards this year!  Depending on the card you choose and how many you order, you can get about 25 cards for free!  Even if you don't win, I really encourage you to check out their special offers.  They regularly offer 20% off coupons and free shipping!

Not a Fashion Blogger

Wednesday, October 3, 2012

I'm not a fashion blogger.  Some days, I don't even look like I got dressed with the lights on.  I feel like I've posted my issues with fashion in the past.  Basically, I have no style.  So when I hit on fashion gold, I feel like I have to share.  It's going to be 53° as a HIGH this Saturday.  It's the coldest day this fall so far.  So naturally, I freaked out and rejoiced at the chance to wear actual fall clothes.  I've already picked my outfit out.

It's Wednesday.

Wanna see it?  Cool, because I want to show you!
