it's the most wonderful time of the year

Ever since Lila arrived, I have been quite the coupon clipper. Because baby stuff BE EXPENSIVE. Did I tell ya'll about the time I used like triple coupons to get a big box of Huggies wipes for $.90? Because I did. And then I bragged to the Target lady checking me out. She was not impressed.

And then I realized to myself when walking through the mall in early October and viewing the Christmas decorations already on display (looks like that mall decorator jumped the gun just a tad) that I would need to start looking for some awesome deals on Christmas cards. Because everyone needs to see my cute baby! Like everyone I have ever met. Which is going to rack up in Christmas card costs super fast.

And then I found these fabulous Shutterfly cards...TA DA! My favorite thing about them? There is lots of room for pictures. Because honestly, who can choose just one baby picture to show off?
I like that this next one has room to write on the inside. Plus it has our monogrammed initial, a plus for any southern lady. And a fabulous song quote. Done.
I think this last one is my favorite. I love to write letters in our cards but then I see that big sheet of paper and start filling people in on unnecessary details like our favorite movie of the year or Brian's new obsession with bagels. This looks like it will limit me to important details only.
They are having a 25% off sale until Wednesday which rocks my socks off. Or you can get 50 free holiday cards (like I just did...full disclaimer cause I like to keep it honest ya'll) by blogging about their holiday cards. Super easy, visit their website for more information.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go
Take a look at the five and ten glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door
~"It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas" by Johnny Mathis
