this is the year

In our (almost) 8 years of marriage, Zach and I have sent out Christmas cards once. And they were pretty lame. I don't think Zach was even looking at the camera in the picture. Because he was typing a paper when I took the picture. And I was, as always, overly happy in picture. It was funny, but pretty sad in terms of Christmas cards. But this year I'm determined. And after learning that Shutterfly is offering bloggers 50 free Christmas or holiday cards, (sweeeeeeet) I really have no reason not to!
They have TONS of Christmas cards to choose from (I don't know how I'm going to pick one....). In looking through all of them I surprised myself in liking the more simple ones the most:

Another popular gift idea is their photo calendars, which I'm seriously considering this year. I like that they have tons of different styles to choose from so you can make it as simple or as busy as you want. And I really like that you can put birthdays and anniversaries on it as well. In fact, maybe I should make one for myself.......

Anyways, just spreadin' the good news, giving you guys some gift ideas, and looking forward to actual, real Christmas cards this year! And hopefully I can get a picture where Zach is actually looking at the camera this time.

Hey thanks for the info! I was really sad bc we can' afford to do Christmas cards this year, but maybe free Christmas cards will work!

Haha! You couldn't take the peer pressure, could you? :)
I really like that top one. Simple is good.

ps. I expect a Christmas card.
