You want my face on your wall?

Guess what? 

Halloween is on Monday. Tuesday is November 1, and then it's time to get serious. I've been in training for Thanksgiving for about 6 weeks now; hitting the gym 6 days a week and doing some serious water drinking to stretch the stomach and all. I don't mess around. I bought Christmas pajamas for my boys today, matching ones. They are adorable if I do say so myself. I'm not going to tell you how many shopping days are left until Christmas because I don't know. I do know that it's time to pick out holiday cards, oh yes it is. 

Now, last year I hooked up with Shutterfly for our cards. I've hooked up with them every year actually. We're involved. They gave me 50 free ones to talk about it, and they're doing it again. I like that. Except I only need about 50 more to call it good. What? I'm popular, VERY popular. I personally am a fan of photo Christmas cards because seriously, what is the point of a Christmas card with no picture? Glad tidings? Whatever. An entire wall in my kitchen was covered with the Christmas cards of our family and friends and it gave me a little thrill every time I walked past. Seriously. I love Christmas cards. 

This was our card last year:


Look at us, we snowboard! But where did these grownups come from and where are my real children? Where am I? Paul? Is this a joke? Oh wait, not us. Picture instead my attractive family with a baby in a bear suit and another in a faux fur hood because that happened. Oh, it was this photo:


Mayhaps you received one. Mayhaps you'll get another this year. Send me your address. I lost it, guaranteed. Anyway, here's the part where I tell you to buy your cards at Shutterfly. But really you should because they have great stuff and quite regularly send out promo codes all the time to customers for stuff like 50 free prints and free photo books and the like. I've got at least 3 photo books and 200 prints laying around that I got for free because you know, TREAT YO SELF.

The holidays, they're coming.

I can't wait.

I ALMOST FORGOT! The first 3 people to comment on this very persuasive post get 25 free cards from Shutterfly. Look at me making it rain with tidings of great joy. You are welcome world.

don't care about the cards so much as wanted to alert you that dave is considering NOT doing one this year- so if you'd like to see his gross stomach or hairy upper man thigh i would commence with the badgering.

For the first time in 3 years, I am sending out Christmas cards. I feel like people are going to jump for joy when they see my card in the mail.

Funny, I was just looking yesterday or Wednesday, I forget at some Christmas card options...I'm getting excited for the festivities!

Steph said...

Luckily I already have pictures of you hung all around my house. In a completely stalkerish extra creepy kinda way.

Mayhaps I will just walk over and take one of your precious cards and make many copies of it so that I can have them all over my house and car and office and purse.

I will be sending out hand drawn cards of our family. They will be provided by the 4 year old. I will have him draw your family too. Or just give you one of the fifty drawings he has already done of all of you including Gus. Mayhaps.

Dagnab. I wanted cards. And I loved yours last year. This year we got PROFESSIONAL pics. Because I realized that we had never taken one non-camera-phone photo of Buster. Poor middle child.

Girlfriend, you know I do. I also want your butt parked next to mine on a bench at Mountain West Burrito sometime soon. xo

Greer, that's awesome!

shoot me an email so I can send you the promo code. I tried replying to your comment with no luck because you haven't synched your email up with your blogger profile.

I love Christmas cards and would love your face on my wall! I just throw away the ones that don't have a picture and have a family of penguins wearing holiday scarves on the front.

I'll email you my address now.

p.s. I want in on the shutterfly 50 free cards thing. I did it last year too and it's the only way I can print as many cards as I need without paying too much for cards. Can't find the promo for bloggers...is there a secret or are you just cool?

I remember seeing your darling christmas card on Shar's wall, and i'm thinking this year if you have enough, we should trade too! So I can feel all special seeing your families cute mugs! :)
