Thanks to everyone for all the help in choosing our birth announcements!
It really came down to the colors in the photo, and I love the way they came out!
Here is the winner:
and the back:
Of course, the text is not exactly what we used on the real announcements, and her last name is not really Awesomebaby (even though I think it should be!) but you get the jist.
What do you think? Do you like them?
Do you love Shutterfly as much as I do?
Now that our new baby girl is here, I want to tell the world! That means I really need to get my birth announcements sent out. And now that I’ve invested in a new camera, I’m a little photo-happy (to say the least.) This works out great since I’m completely in love with Shutterfly and their selection of birth announcements, cards, and photo gifts. I’m always on the lookout for coupons and we use them for easy, thoughtful, and affordable gifts all year long.
I’m not a top notch photographer (yet!), but I think I’ve gotten quite a few that will work nicely for my announcements. The problem I’m running into now is that Shutterfly has sooo many cute options to choose from that every time I get online to design them, I get overwhelmed, can’t decide, and put it off until later.

With all the chaos of Halloween, extreme weather on the east coast, and my little man’s birthday, November 11th nearly slipped my mind.
What’s November 11th? It’s Veterans Day!
Veterans Day has never meant more to me than it does now. My dad is a Vietnam vet, and in recent years he’s started to open up about his experience more than he ever did while I was growing up. As a kid, I guess I thought it was just something dads did. No big deal. Continue reading
My day job is in retails, so there is a lot of talk about holiday greetings this time of year. What exactly do we say to customers when they shop in our stores? The answer differs from company to company, but it is something I think about in my personal life, too.
Because we have friends and family that celebrate so many different holidays, we always send out very holiday-neutral cards in December. Each year, I browse the holiday selection at Shutterfly and I find more Holiday Cards than I could possibly imagine. Last year, I chose an autumn design and added photos of our boy playing in piles of leaves. But this year, I’m not sure. From religious, scripture-based cards to ones that just say “Happy EVERYTHING!”, Shutterfly has something for every card-sender’s style. Traditional, modern, funky – you name it, they’ve got it, and they add new ones each year.
It’s sad, but true. Zombies are eating my brain.
They really are. I blame them for lots of things that have been happening lately.
The countless leftovers I’ve left sitting on the counter all night long. My throwing a brand new sweater right into the super hot dryer. The wrong turn I took the other day that made me late for work.
…and the fact that I didn’t even realize I had the opportunity to offer a giveaway for 25 holiday cards when I did my Shutterfly post!
It’s the zombies, I tell you.
