Help Me Choose My 2014 Holiday Cards, Please?

It’s that time of year again – time to pick out the Douglas Family holiday cards from Minted.com! Can you help me? I couldn’t be more excited about working with Minted this year!

As you know, I’m a sucker for Christmas cards with lots of photo options. Last year, we quite narrowly missed out on sending a comic book photo card, and this year it’s tied for first, but I’d loooove some input from you, as always :)

1. Amazing Comic Book

OMGGGG I want to cry at how adorable and fantastic this is. If we choose it, I almost want to have everyone dress up in super hero costumes for it!

2. Happiness is…

3. Fun Facts

Considering our move, I thought this would be REALLY cute way to update everyone on our year’s travels, y’know? Plus, I’ve always wanted to do one of these newsletter-y type cards that updates far away friends what we’ve been up to on the card.

4. Complete Tree

Oh gosh, I fell HARD for how sweet and artistic this card is, how it pieces together moments from your year and shapes it into a tree. They have one close to this one in the shape of a heart, it’s a toss up for me on these two designs.

5. Our Favorite Moments

I love how this features favorite moments from the year on the card. It’s just so pretty, isn’t it?

Birthday Reflections

birthday love note from hubby

This hasn't been the best week, cleansing out all the yuck from this anti-candida diet. I've said repeatedly to my husband and friends that I didn't even want to celebrate today. But then I woke up yesterday and today feeling... different. Head less foggier. Body less achier. A little sharper, still weak and starving but.. better. And I think I can take this experience (albeit, still in its infancy stage) and say that 38 is going to be just like … Keep Reading

Happiness is ______ {2014-W46} #happinessis

acrostic poem for my son's name

We spent 52 weeks in 2013 celebrating what made us happy, and it WAS a fantastic year. Let's make 2014 the year where we really truly focus on surrounding ourselves with only joy and happiness all year round, every month, every week, every day. Tell me, what makes you happy? What is it that you do that you can't get enough of? What makes your soul shine, your eyes beam, and your insides sparkle? Happiness is so very many things for me, and … Keep Reading

Anti-Candida Diet from H-e-l-l

Anti-Candida Coconut Balls

I wish I could sit here and tell you how WONDERFULLY I'm doing on this anti-candida diet, how marvelously LIFE-CHANGING this has been for me, how purging all the sugar and carbs from my diet has made me feel like a NEW WOMAN. But it hasn't. Not yet, anyway. Right now, it totally sucks. I'm assured I'll start to feel better soon, that right now I'm just "cleansing" the crap out, but to be honest? I feel like I'm starving. Nothing seemingly … Keep Reading

NOT ME! And yet, that's exactly what happens, especially with young kids, isn't it? They have a horrible cough, you pour the cough syrup in order to help, but you end up wearing it because they hate the taste. Parent friends, I know you're right there … Keep Reading
