respecting the turkey... but still being prepared!

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is just over 2 weeks away. That’s crazy to me. This whole year has flown by, and even Travis (who normally isn’t fazed by such things) sent me an email the other day saying, if Thanksgiving is right around the corner, then so is Christmas. ::gulp::

I made myself feel a little better by putting together my list of people to buy for, and a few ideas for each person. We’re really trying to keep things simple this year, and keep our list small. We mostly want to focus on Gwen’s first Christmas, and making it a nice one. I actually already crossed some people off of our list too, which really makes me feel better.

The other worry, of course, is Christmas cards. I swear our list grows longer and longer every year, even though I try to trim it down. So getting a great card is always a big thing for me... and my favorite, of course, is a good photo card (I know, big surprise there, right?!). Here are a few that I love from Shutterfly:

(I love these both. They are very clean, simply, lovely. But can I really just pick one picture?! Anyone who's seen one of my picture heavy posts would probably guess no!)

I love this one too. Cute, right? And three pictures.   :-)

I’ve used shutterfly for a ton of things in the past… lots of prints of course, but also a mug for Travis for father's day, and a number of photobooks. Their stuff always looks great, so hence my running to them for cards. But this year I’m also running to them for calendars.

We have two grandmothers, and a work bubbie, who all would LOVE a gift featuring their favorite baby (who am I kidding, I'll probably get one for myself too). I can't wait to see all the great photo stuff.

Do you want 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly? (And really, who wouldn't.) Click HERE to go to Shutterfly for information on how you can get 50 free cards this holiday season.


  1. LOL - we were on the same page today!

  2. Those are really cute!I want to do a photo card so badly but there are literally no decent pics of my girls. I think pro pics might be in order :-)I can't wait to see what you decide on.


Leave me some love!
