It has been a while since we had a good giveaway around here, yes? Today I’m excited to share Paper Culture with you and give someone a chance to win a nice big gift code right in time for the holidays (and a SWEET discount code for everyone)! We used our awesome newborn photos that my friend Stacy took to create our announcements. It was hard to choose which card because they are all so beautiful. I think I designed about 8 different options before we agreed on a two sided one with room for 5 photos. It was really easy – just upload the photos you might want to use then fill them into whatever designs you want to see them in. It was simple to move them around, and you can also edit them – zoom, make them black and white, enhance – to make your card exactly what you want it to be. The cards are printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper, and I love the rounded corners and how thick they are. The photos printed beautifully, too! With every purchase, Paper Culture plants a tree, and you get to dedicate that tree to whomever you’d like, which was fun. To date they’ve planted over 300,000 trees. I love their modern designs and that you can get not only holiday cards and announcements, but birthday invites, Halloween party invites and stationery. They recently added wall decals that are super cute, too. They offer free addressing and mailing – give them your address list and they print yours, theirs and mail and all you pay is postage along with your order. YES PLEASE. My hand hurts just thinking about Christmas cards. Today Paper Culture wants to give one of you a $150 to spend any way you’d like! Entering is easy – simply go visit Paper Culture and leave a comment here telling me what tickles your fancy. That’s it! I’ll draw a winner this Friday. In the meantime, they’re offering everyone 30% off their order! Simply click here to collect your voucher and just be sure to use it by December 15th. Thirty percent! Boo yah. Full disclosure: Paper Culture provided us with our announcements at no charge. All opinions are mine, all mine, and no other compensation was received for this post. Good luck to all!

My family and I finally saw The Croods (Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and DreamWorks Animation). We missed it at the theaters last spring, but watched the Blu-ray over the weekend. The kids, my wife and I loved it. The animated film made us laugh through out the movie. My kids loved it so much that they watched it a second time on Sunday. The Croods is available now on Blu-ray and DVD. BTW, for a limited time only, the Blu-ray and DVD comes with a lovable Belt toy (Belt is one of the characters in the film).

Well hello! I think I just opened my laptop to legitimate dust on the keyboard. It’s not the only dusty place in my house, that’s for sure. Because newborn. Who’s not really a newborn anymore I guess? I don’t know or remember the specifics but I think he might be an “infant” now. Hmph. It’s been many many weeks since I came by here, which is unfortunate, but very necessary. I had forgotten (read: pushed out of my mind) how intense and rough the first three months can be after birthing a baby. They call it the 4th trimester? Shit knows I wouldn’t want to continue being pregnant for another 3 months, but part of me wouldn’t mind considering it if it meant these babies could come out just a tad more prepared for being alive. The gas! The reflux! For the love of Justin Timberlake, let these poor babies be fully functioning when they exit. It’s sad to watch and very hard on us parents who get the babies who don’t deal well with it (Harper was a baby that dealt okay with it, at least that is what my amnesia brain tells me). It’s been rough. Smith is the cutest baby alive and with great cuteness comes great responsibility to be the fussiest baby alive to even things out. His cuteness is his defense mechanism against getting sent to the cute baby circus at 3am. Slowly, s.l.o.w.l.y., things are improving but it was touch and go there for a while people. I cried when he did. We did all the things, yet nothing helped. I had days where I literally held and wore him all day while he screamed near my ears and by the time Scot got home I was at hot mess level orange and Harper was sitting in front of the television eating her third pack of fruit snacks because whatthehellever kid I’m just so sorry your brother loves screaming like a banshee and your mom cries a lot. Super sorry. I have to give her huge props. All things considered, she has done so well with this transition and ADORES her brother beyond words. She’s very tolerant of him crying and helps me out a bunch. He’ll be 8 weeks old this weekend (okay?) and I have to say things are looking up? Like not directly up but definitely a 45 degree angle. It happened kind of suddenly last weekend when he started smiling a lot and I don’t know if his reflux and his intestines decided they could smile too or what, but it’s been better. I feel like if this were my first baby I’d be long gone by now in the abyss of my own tears and wine trying to figure out what is wrong with him and wondering if it will ever end. But I’ve had one of these things before, and even though I think she was a different baby than him, I do know that all babies even out eventually and that there is a light somewhere down there. I’m hanging in there because I know that. But I know there are many new moms out there in my spot who may feel alone and overwhelmed and so to you I say, you are doing amazing. This too shall pass. It will get better. It feels like it won’t but it will. No one can promise when, but it will. I’ve found that as he slowly gets better, I also get better at coping. After being out of the newborn game for so long I found myself feeling really anxious about Smith and becoming kind of neurotic about what might be wrong with him. He does have the reflux, but nothing is really wrong with him that we can “fix”. He’s a baby, he’s new, and he cries. Some babies are just like that. It doesn’t make it any easier, but coming to terms with that lifted the anxiety. Knowing that I’ve done all the things I can to make him comfortable and that after that he’s just going to yell if he wants to, has made my days feel easier Accepting that this time is so short in the grand scheme and that my house will be a mess and I will be a mess right now and someday maybe it won’t and maybe I wont, has helped. And I can’t be sure but I think my rela

I’m a fan of New Girl, which stars Zooey Deschanel (remember her in Elf and 500 Days of Summer?). The third season just started, but I missed a few episodes from last season. Fortunately, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent me the second season DVD set for review on my blog. Now I can catch up on the episodes I missed in season two. If you have not seen the show, you should. It’s very funny. BTW, New Girl: The Complete Second Season is available now on DVD. It has a list price of $40, but you can currently purchase it on Amazon for about $23.
