I recently stumbled upon the greatest deal with Shutterfly! I am super excited about it. Last year (our first christmas since being married) I decided I wanted to make it a tradition to send out christmas cards each year. They are something that I LOVE to reviece around the holidays. My favorites are always the ones with pictures. I think it's a great way for people to see how you've changed from year to year. I love to look back at them every now and then. Last year mine was easy to decide on because I was able to use a wedding photo. This year, the picture is still in question. So anyway, back to Shutterfly. If you are a blogger, they are offering 50 FREE CARDS! Last year I sent out about 100 and this year plan to do the same. For me, that is cutting my cost in half. I am sure my husband would be proud:) For those of you that don't send out that many, or don't send any at all, this is a great deal. 50 FREE CARDS!!! After hearing about this deal, I decided to browse to find some I liked. There were so many to choose from. Side note-Did you know they can print pictures on canvas?!? Anyway, here are some of my favorites:
I have mentioned before that Kevin coaches a grade school football team here in Louisville. Well, this weekend was the big championship game--the toy bowl! Their team went undefeated with a record of 8-0. The final game this past Saturday was a little cold but a great day for football. It lasted through 7 overtime's! That was the longest game in toy bowl history. Here are some of the pictures from the website. I am so proud of the team and especially the offensive coordinator!
I had a super busy weekend. We planted tulips AND mums, cleaned the house, and did some much needed laundry. Let's hope that the tulips come up this spring:) We had 2 cookouts. One with my Dad and his family for my step sister's birthdays. One is turning 9 and the other is turning 20. After that, we headed to the Szabo's (Kevin's sister) because our brother-in-law's parents were in town from New Hampshire. We had a great time visiting with them. Karley was super excited to have all 4 grandparents there. She can be quite the entertainer! We also got to go to the Lady Antebellum concert. My mom, her friend Betty, my sister-in-law, and I went. It was AMAZING!!!
For one of the cookouts, I make a salad that I thought was pretty tasty, Here is the recipe for it:
*use any kind of greens-I used romain
*one sliced pear
*one sliced apple
*parmesan or asiago cheese
*1 teaspoon of dijon mustard
*1/3 cup lemon juice
*1/2 cup sugar
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*2 teaspoons onion
*2/3 cup canola oil
Sorry no pictures but very yummy and pretty too! I hope everyone enjoys their week!!!
