Got pictures? Shutterfly can help.

Taking a quick moment to pop in and tell you about a neat contest that Shutterfly is currently having.  I have written previously my love for Shutterfly and Tiny Prints.  Not only do they make gorgeous cards, change of address items, invitations and photo books, but they also get those items to you quick as well!  I have used both of them and highly recommend them.

Like you didn't already know..

This blog is taking a summer break.  It actually started it out as a spring break that has quickly become a summer one.  I want to do some serious revamping of the looks of this site (have you seen my header? my girls haven't been that little since 2009!) but alas it is now summer.  Summer means Miss M is home all the time and wants to do things!  One of those things is not watch me work on this blog.

So...hang in there.  We shall return with hopefully a newer and fresher outlook and such.

In the mean time, stay cool (105 degrees today in Chicago!).
