So I love Shutterfly and love using them for printing pictures, making inviations, and so much more so I was estatic when I saw that they were giving away 50 free cards to bloggers! I was in the process of planning our card out when I saw my friend Lindsay's facebook talking about this fabulous promotion. Now I always feel so akward putting a picture of just me & Adam on the front of the card, (I will feel better once we have kiddos) but I just love how adorable their cards are AND how easy they make sending out a bizillion cards during a crazy busy time :) Here is a little preview of some of their cards... This was the one my sister-in-law used last year - I LOVED it!! Well I am going to keep looking at all of their AMAZING cards online...you should check them out too!! Merry Christmas!

So I won an AWESOME giveaway today and I am just bursting with excitement and filled with joy! Whatever could this AWESOME thing be!?!? Well let me just tell you about it quick...
Sweet Cassie was hosting a giveaway for a Vintage Pearl gift certificate (if you are unfamiliar with The Vintage Pearl, you MUST go check it out...it is amazing!!) and while I do LOVE The Vintage Pearl for myself, I had someone else in mind! An INCREDIBLE someone I might add. A someone who has gone through a lot and has an incredible amount of strength and has truly touched my life! I had been telling Adam that I thought we should get them something from The Vintage Pearl and not too long after saying that, I look and see Cassie was hosting a giveaway! I was like okay I never win anything ever, but I just have to try and see if I can win this for them! (Sidenote: I don't want to say who this someone is yet because I don't want to ruin the surprise!) So I read how to enter and got started. I have never done an online giveaway, but I was somewhat familiar with the concept of how to get "extra points or entries" by facebooking, twittering, blogging, etc. So I don't know how to Twitter or really know what it is, but was determined to do all the other "extra" things as well. I commented on Cassie's blog, became a follower of the incredible Erin (who owns The Vintage Pearl) and then was trying to figure out how to somehow make a facebook status that had a link to Cassie's site. I do realized I sound like one of those silly technically challenged kinda people...well that is because I am! So I was getting kind of bummed and just decided to leave my facebook how it was and just log out when I saw I had a message. It was from Cassie and I know she probably wouldn't want me to bring this up, but I just want to share how precious she is and what an amazing heart she has. She told me she read my story and that she wanted to give me a gift certificate to use for my friend even if I didn't win the giveaway on her blog. She said she was still going to draw a name and she would just talk to me later about getting me a certificate. I teared up when I read that and was touched by her generosity and kindness. What a beautiful heart she has and an incredible eagerness to serve and bless others! Well I looked today and saw I had a message from Cassie, and her first words are "Did you see the blog?" I got goosebumps as I read the rest and she told me that she promised she randomly chose a number, and guess who it was...ME :) I looked on her blog and she was right, she really does enter it into this random number generator thingy and I really was the winner. It was a total God thing, don't you think!! She ended her message with this, "Congrats! God is really good, even in the smallest details:)" Just gives me goosebumps! I will tell you all more about who this "mystery" someone is and about their powerful testimony...it kinda makes this story even cooler, but I didn't want to share all of it in case they read this and saw they were getting something amazing from The Vintage Pearl :) Thank you again Cassie & Erin for everything, you girls are a blessing!
