Cards have been ordered!

I got a great deal (FREE!) on 50 cards - so my personalized cards only cost me $8 in shipping!  Thanks Shutterfly!

I chose one of the designs below - leave your guess in the comments.

Also, if you're actually reading this you're more than likely on my list - please email me your address!

Coming up: our trip to San Antonio and a few catch-up posts from this summer.

Christmas Cards!

Right now I'm surrounded by old pictures - some from the 70's and 80's, a lot from the 90's, and a bunch from the 2000's.  It makes me think that it might  be about time for me to start really thinking about the pictures I take and the memories we create!

Enough so that I might even be convinced to mail out a Christmas Card (yeah right...Happy New Year card) this year!

Of course that means that I'll have to find a picture that includes both me and Mark (no, Rocky will not be in it - he prefers solo portraits....and let's be honest, the amount of grief I would get for sending out a Christmas Card with only our cat on it would be even more than I can handle!) - I'm thinking the big tree in the lobby of the Contessa this weekend will be perfect (hence, the New Year's Cards).

But, the best part about the whole Christmas Card thing is the tons of options that are available -  especially on Shutterfly.  Their collection this year is incredible!

Some of my favorites include: (

(Apparently I have a thing for different fonts)

Which one is your favorite?  Go to to see more!

I guess you'll just have to watch your mailboxes to see if those cards really do get sent out this year!

PS - Shutterfly also has make your own calendars ( and personalized thank you cards ( that could really come in handy this time of the year as well.

The first Christmas cookies are done!

Mark says they are good. I say Royal Icing is a pain.
