Long Weekend

I LOVE long weekends. Mainly because I get to spend so much time with Chris which is my favorite thing in the world to do!

We spent Thanksgiving out at the cabin we just built on our family property, which was a lot of fun. Chris, I and my parents were there as well as my brother, my gma who was visiting from CA, and Chris' dad, stepmom and stepsister. Unfortunately his little brother wasn't there since his mom had him this Thanksgiving. I spent half the day in one of the bedrooms because my pinched nerves in my tailbone are sooooo horrible. We've decided (as a family...no one makes decisions on their own in my family, haha!) that on Monday I am going to the chiropractor against my doctor's wishes. I simply cannot deal with the pain anymore...I can barely walk and I am so miserable. I know my chiro can fix it. I've been going to him for about 6 years and he's wonderful and I trust that he wouldn't do anything that could compromise Brayden in any way.

Anyway, we took a ton of pictures for our Christmas card - this is the first year we are going to do a photocard. I am going to use Tiny Prints and if I'm happy with them, I'm going to use them for my birth annoucements too. I really like their cards. Have you or anyone you know used them before? Were you happy? Here are some pics...
I think we'll use this one for our card:


Yesterday we went to Babies R Us in Joplin and bought our stroller! I have to tell you my amazing deal on this. Chris thought I was nuts but I ordered BRU coupons from Ebay...someone sold a big pack of them for $3.00. Anyway, my $290 travel system cost me $90 after coupons, rebates and that also includes a 2 year warranty! GO ME! I was so proud of myself! I don't have a pic yet because Chris hauled it upstairs but here is a pic from BRU of our system:
Tomorrow we are headed to Oklahoma City to get Chris' new truck. I'm not overly thrilled about a 6 hour drive but I choose to go so I guess I can't complain! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I'm sorry about the pain you are in. I told Scott tonight I didn't see how I was possibly going to make it another 6 weeks. I nearly went into labor (or it felt like it) just trying to shop at Wal-Mart today. I'm pitiful. (SO WORTH IT - but I'm pitiful all the same!)
Photo cards are the best! We've had one every year since we got married and it's my favorite way to do a card! I've never used Tiny Prints but I love their stuff!

Way to go!!You practically stole the stroller from BRU! That's amazing! I'm sorry that you are in so much pain. Hopefully, your can get some relief this week!

I am so sorry about your pain. I really think you are doing the right thing going to the chiropractor. My husband is a chiropractor and it is soooo good for you to go throughout your pregnancy. I am praying that will help you. Your Christmas picture looks beautiful! What an amazing fireplace! Let us know how things go at the chiropractor. :)

I'm sorry about the pain your having. Hope the chiro will help! Great deal on the stroller set! I was worried that you maybe had gone into labor since you hadn't posted. Happy to hear from you!

Your picture is beautiful! And so is your cabin. I hope you feel better after visiting the chiro.

I found your blog through Kelly. I just wanted to say first that your cabin is beautiful and that's a great picture of you and your husband! I have used Tiny Prints several times as have many people I know. I think you will love their quality. They look very professional and look like they cost a lot more than they do.

Sorry you are in pain!!

GREAT deal on that stoller!!! Wow!!

Robin Lynn said...

Not sure how I found your blog but love it and love checking in on your family to be!!

To answer your question I am using Tiny Prints this year. My photographer (my super fabulous friend) uses them. Her card last year was phenomenal. So I am sure you will be super pleased with them!!! And they are so reasonable which helps because I have to send out 200!! hehehehe

Have a great week!!!

I am so sorry about the pain! A friend of mine went to a physical therapist and she said it did wonders ;)!

Your cabin is so beautiful ;)! I think your Christmas Cards will be precious!!!

Go you on the deal!

We always use Tiny Prints and LOVE them!

That stroller is awesome, I am so sorry that you had such a hard time getting pregnant (I can relate) I am so glad your precious little boy is doing better.

Could you give a little more detail as to what the coupons were? We're in the mist of yet another cycle (working on 3 years of ttc) and boy does it add up! I think we've secured my doctor's son's college education. It's the same one my husband and I want so many of our friends have it and love it.

What type of coupons do I need? Can I use all those coupons in one transaction? Did the rebates come with the coupons you got in the auction?
