Christmas Cards 2015

It was a Christmas miracle that I got our Christmas cards designed, printed, labeled, stuffed, stamped, return address stamped, sealed, AND washi taped in less than 3 days. While I love all the designs on the greeting card company sites, I don’t get to design a lot these days so it’s always fun when I can do a project for us. And big shoutout to my printer who has 24 hour turnaround time with free overnight shipping. Love them!

We were able to use a picture from our Santa photo session and I love how it turned out! Here’s the front of our card!

I realized two things while taking these photos last night and then again taking more this morning. 1. Toddlers NEVER stop moving. 2. I really need to take a class on how to use my real camera! Why do I need to take a class? Because 90% of my pictures ended … read more

Visiting Santa 2015

So our visit to Santa this year went pretty much how I expected…

When Santa came into the room Jude wasn’t very impressed. He listened to the story and watched some other kids sit on his lap. But when it was his turn and Brandon took him over to sit on Santa’s lap he tried to climb over Brandon. Even with the offer of a high five (his favorite thing ever)!

So we plopped him down and snapped a few screaming photos (how can you not?!?!).

And then BTR swooped in and saved him! Once Brandon had him he was a happy camper so we snapped a few of … read more

Friday Favorites + A GIVEAWAY!

Hi Friends! It’s time for Friday Favorites + A Giveaway!

Today’s Favorites is more of a currently post because I haven’t done one in a while! And make sure you make it to the end of the post for a super awesome GIVEAWAY


Feeling – like a bad gift giver because I can’t keep a secret and already gave BTR some slippers I bought him. But I came up with another fun idea so hopefully I can keep that one a secret!

Drinking – all the hot chocolate and loving getting free things in the mail from Starbucks Rewards. I have no idea what mailing list I got on, but … read more
