I've been a tad absent from here lately but I've been buried under Christmas preparation. What, you say? It's not even Thanksgiving yet!
I get that but the boys, their significant others and families will be converging on our house this weekend and we'll be celebrating our Christmas together on Sunday!
Why so early, you ask? It's the only common time amongst all of our schedules we had between now & Christmas. How sad is that? But hey, it works and we just go with the flow around here. The most important thing is to get together not when we do right?
So anyway, I've been shopping and decorating like a mad woman since we just decided Sunday was the date 2-1/2 weeks ago!
I love online shopping, I just gotta say. No stress, no crowds to deal with (therefore no bail money needed - unfortunately patience doesn't run very deep in me when it comes to dealing with crowds), orders delivered right to my door, how much better does it get than that?
Speaking of online shopping, check out this deal for Bloggers over at Shutterfly! If you blog about Shutterfly and their fun gifts, 50 Free Christmas cards can make their way to your door. How slick and stress free is that??? No bail money needed while shopping for Christmas cards either and aren't photo cards fun to receive? I'm always excited when they come in the mail. Just look at these designs. This one is a favorite of mine or maybe this one. How can I possibly decide?
Or wouldn't these mugs be fun to drink your hot chocolate out of during the cold winter months?
How fun would it be to create a photo calendar like this?
The folks at Shutterfly do such an awesome job. Awhile back we ordered a photo book for a retiree where I work. The online designing was easy peasy and it came lickety split. It turned out so cool. The recipient loved it and it will be something he can always look at and remember. What is that saying? A picture is worth a thousand words!
I just have to reiterate, I LOVE online shopping!
