[Review] Mixbook Photo Cards

Well, summer vacation is over and that pretty much means the year is picking up speed and the holiday hustle and bustle is fast approaching.  Although I always seem so organized in the beginning, it never fails every year, something slips through the cracks.  One of the first things I give up on is my Christmas cards.  Well, this year is going to be different since I already have my Christmas cards designed, ordered and in my possession.
I ordered my Christmas Cards from Mixbook this year and I have to say, I am very impressed.

The Big Move

I remember when I was younger and my mom had been thinking of moving.  I always thought it was an exciting possibility, eventhough, we never actually went through with it.  Maybe it was the thought of starting over somewhere else and kind of leaving your troubles behind.  Maybe it was the idea of just having something new and a new environment.  

The day I turned 18, I moved in with my boyfriend, now my husband.  That was exciting.  I had all of 3 boxes and moved, literally, less than a mile away.  That was exciting to be on my own, paying my own bills (yeah, what was I thinking?!?!)

When I was 20, we moved a mile back.  That was exciting because

Remembering 9/11

Can you believe it's been 10 years already?  Its been 10 years since so many lives were affected.  It's been 10 years since America was changed forever. 

I remember I had just had what I thought was a chaotic weekend with my fiance and a few of our friends.  We were supposed to be gone for just the weekend but the events unfortunately led us to miss work on that Monday.  So, Tuesday, when I finally made it into work, I was telling the girls at the office about my Sand dune/broken trucks/tornado filled weekend when my boss ran back to our department with small TVs.  When he first turned on the TV, I seen smoke coming from the first tower that was hit.  I remember being a little confused because people were saying it was an accident and some were saying it wasn't.  And to be honest, I was 19 and didn't even know anything about the World Trade Center until that day.  Our eyes were glued to the TV waiting for confirmation of the cause as we seen the second plane hit the second tower.  That was our confirmation!  

Such a horrific day!  All of those events on 9/11 have forever left an imprint on America and our hearts.  I've been watching specials lately on TV about the heroes of 9/11.  And I love hearing the specific details of the firefighters on the ground to Frank Di Martini and Pablo Ortiz featured on TLC's "9/11: Heroes of the 88th Floor", to Todd Beamer on United Airlines Flight 93 and his famous last words, "Let's Roll". But, I have to say, watching all of the dramatizations and footage from that day is just as hard to watch today as it was then.  I still get a little choked up watching the twin towers falling and my family wasn't even directly affected by the day's events.

My thoughts and prayers go out to those who have suffered and experienced great loss on 9/11.  Our loved ones and heroes will never be forgotten.  God Bless America!

Do you remember where you were when America was changed forever?

Tag*a*long Review & #Rafflecopter Giveaway

Grocery shopping has always been a struggle for me since I've had the twins and even more now, since having my 4th.  I've always tried to run my errands after my husband was home from work and able to be with the kids for a while.  Conner, being 5, he is able to walk along side me without a problem and Noah rides comfortably in his carrier.  The twins, 3, are still at the age where they wander and can't help but to run circles around me as I go up and down the aisles.  Do I try to keep them close while shopping or try to put everyone in the shopping cart with no room for actual groceries?

And then came the Tag*a*long. I was so happy to be able to grocery shop when I have to, and not have to find someone to sit with the kids. The Tag*a*long easily attaches
