Adrienne

Can I just talk about how my child is some kind of serious? Good. I never know what's going to come out of her mouth. She can sing her whole alphabet, spell her name, and count to 15 in Spanish (thanks Dora!), not always on cue, only when she really wants to. But when I ask her to do something (like after repeating myself four times) she says, "Oh muh gowsh mama, AL-WHITE. I hear youwa." ::blank stare:: She is two almost three. Two almost three year olds aren't even supposed to be able to talk. Oh. They are? I didn't know. This is my first rodeo.

Adrienne is a people person. She makes just about anyone smile from ear to ear. When she stomps into a room, the inhabitants are immediately captivated by her aura. Those people turn into her audience and she puts on a magnificent show.

That said, she's is also bilingual. She knows English and Dance. She can get down like no other child I've seen. She was born into music. Her daddy is a musician, so it's naturally in her blood. As soon as those little ears hear any kind of beat, her ocean colored eyes sparkle so bright, and she cuts a mini sized rug. A hilarious one at that. 

She can also throw a horrendous temper tantrum. Like her head turning all the way around tantrum. Projectile vomit and everything. But a split nano second later say, "Hey, Mommy? Mommy. I love our house," just out of the blue. And like magic, my wanting to drown myself in red wine is gone. My heart gets all warm and fuzzy like, and the need to hug and eat her cheeks envelopes me. Those are the moments I drink in. 


No, actually I devour each and every moment, the good and the bad. Even in times of pure sass like I captured in the photo above. Adrienne is so awesome and brilliant  She's just a cool kid. And boy, is she beautiful. I'm so very lucky that I'm her mom.

Tiny Prints Christmas Cards

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!

If you are pretty sure you are getting a holiday card from me, DO NOT scroll down. Especially if you like the element of surprise. Because I'm about to talk Christmas cards. Our Christmas cards. If you'd like to see them, continue on.

The past two years we've made Christmas cards for our family and frands. I still don't know exactly why I go through the trouble. The taking of one hundred gazillion shots to get my kid to look adorable in just one, the editing, the ordering, the money spent, the addressing all those cards, the stamp buying, the walking to the mail box, just to get a few holiday cards in return. I know Christmas is about giving and all that jazz. But, what can I say, I like GETTING.

Maybe I just don't have enough frands that have kids or family that doesn't get into sending out well wishes via snail mail anymore. Whatever it is, it makes me kind of sad face. So, if you are still reading this because you are nosy and know my address, send me a damn Christmas card already. It can even be a Kwanzaa card. I'm not picky.

Our first Christmas card of Adrienne I used Shutterfly.  The second year I went with them, again. I was happy with the outcome of the two previous years using that company to make my Christmas cards. Both cards did their job by showcasing the cuteness of my kid and being very reasonably priced. But, on the other hand, they looked a tad bit cheap and thin. I guess you get what you pay for.


AnyChristmastimeisstressfulandexpensive, Tiny Prints, a stylish and innovative card company, who merged with Shutterfly last year, basically whipped up my 2012 Christmas cards and shipped them in record time. Me getting them sent out to my peeps as fast as Tiny Prints? Not happening.


The cards I received from Tiny Prints are pretty amazing. The card itself is huge. It's wider than the previous years and looks like an actual card. It's a lot thicker, too. Plus, when you turn the card over, the back has a coordinating color scheme AND three more pictures of my kiddo. Hey-oh. I also love how it fits in a frame, unlike those other weirdly long and skinny Christmas cards from years past. The card just feels more expensive, too. Maybe that's because it is. Their holiday cards range from just under a dollar to a little over four dollars. The particular card I made was $2.39 a piece (depending on how many ordered).




The editing on the Tiny Prints website is exceptional and the customer service is even better. I'm super happy with their product. I am pretty sure I'll be using them next holiday season. I have my eyes on these these circle cards. How awesome would it be to give these out so your receiver could hang them on their Christmas trees? Very.

Cupcake Liners Repost


Last Christmas I made a couple of these snazzy guys. You find out the deets on how I made these by going HERE. They are super easy to make, very kid friendly, and can withstand being boxed up all year. How? I don't know. But this handsome little duo still looks good on my shelf this holiday.
