Christmas Card Success

Yesterday, I tried to do something almost impossible, get a good picture of Munchkin for our Christmas card. Don’t get me wrong, Munchkin is an incredibly photogenic baby, but I can never seem to get a good picture of him when I actually need it. I guess he will never be a model because when someone tries to make him pose, the results aren’t so great, as seen below. Or maybe he just needs a better photographer.

I eventually gave up on taking a good picture and put Munchkin down for his nap and that is when this happened.

I saw a picture of a little baby sleeping with Christmas light next to him on Pinterest and figured it’s worth a shot, and you don’t know how glad I am. After editing the picture a bit, I was in love.

I ordered the cards from SimplyToImpress.com if anyone is wondering. I bought a voucher from Living Social for $15 a few weeks ago that gave me $40 to spend on the cards.

Since we were busy playing photographer, we ordered pizza for dinner. I got a veggie slice from my favorite pizzeria in the world, Rosa’s. I may be biased because this is basically the only place I’ve gone for pizza regularly in my life, but the pizza is amazing.


Today I am heading to the supermarket and to Michael’s to pick up the supplies I need to make my cookies for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! I’m still deciding between two recipes that I want to make. I also need to find some cute containers to ship them in at Michael’s.  I have an idea of what I want to do, but I’m gonna keep it a bit of a secret until I post about the cookies.

My belly is rumbling, so I think it’s time for breakfast!

Cheers to the freakin’ weekend! ;)

Do you make your holiday cards or buy them? What are your plans for the weekend?

  5. Currently it looks like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  6. Thanks! I love the way it came out. I ordered from Shutterfly last year and loved my cards too.
