Lovin' This Deal, Lovin' This Company!

Well, to follow in succession of my favorite blog (This Beautiful Frugal Life) and other friends I am posting about my most FAVORITE recent deal (Yes, I realize "most favorite" is a double adjective). Shutterfly is offering up to 50 free photo cards for posting about how much I LOVE their stuff! When I first saw this, I thought it must be too good to be true. I had already been drooling over Shutterfly's Christmas cards this year wondering just how good of a deal I could get on them!

Many of you know that I absolutely LOVE Shutterfly, particularly their photobooks! I just ordered my third 8 x 8 photobook this year thanks to a sweet Groupon deal I purchased at the end of the summer. Their quality is AMAZING and I have never been disappointed with anything I've ordered from them. I have ordered photobooks from over three different companies and my favorite by far is definitely Shutterfly's books! In fact, my goal is to continue to make an 8 x 8 Shutterly book every season! I love doing it and my new obsession with the camera has lent to quite a few pictures in our iphoto library. My next project will definitely have to be a Shutterfly calendar though. I love their desk calendars and I think they would be another perfect gift idea! I think their stuff is so cute it almost makes me want to have another baby just so that I can order some birth announcements!

I highly recommend checking out their site and even getting signed up for their e-mail alerts. They send out great coupons, which you all know I'm a fan of! ;) I hope this encourages someone to order some beautiful Christmas cards and the next time you're at our house you'll have to check out our photobooks! ;) I just got our newest one (Fall 2010) in the mail last week!

Oh, and don't forget to send me a card! =)

It's been too long and I'm well aware of it. Here's an update for those who have been asking (and for those who haven't... =)! Thank you for your prayers, friends!

I love these two Duck fans like CRAZY!!!

Our Little Frog...

Unfortunately Madi has been a little under the weather this week. =( She came down with Croup on Monday night. Her fever was pretty much gone by Tuesday night, but she is still hacking up lots of yuckiness. We spent the week at home, which felt great! The doctor encouraged us to get out in the cold crisp air as much as possible, so we snuggled up in the frog costume on Wednesday and headed to the park to take some pictures!

I LOVE fall leaves.

... and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE pictures with fall leaves!

At the end of our trip, I let the little frog dive right into her "pond". She pretty much loved it! After she had walked through the puddle a few times she reached down to her soaking "feet" (?) and said, "uh, oh"! =)

She was really into the big girl swing, although that pretty much meant that she just hung there. I didn't really trust her to hold on if she swung at all.

She was definitely ready for her nap by the end of our playdate! =) She didn't want to leave though. She preferred resting her head on the chain. =)

***These pictures pretty much have to replace any "Halloween" pictures because we didn't do much!***
