Holiday Cards with Minted + GIVEAWAY!!

Shutterbean + Minted

YOU GUYS.

I am done with my holiday cards!!! Wait. That doesn’t mean I’ve addressed them yet… but anyways this is the first year EVERRRRRR that I am going into December with our holiday cards in MY POSSESSION. Last year was so hectic, I almost sent out New Years cards and then realized I would have thrown off my tradition and wouldn’t have a 2013 card in my collection; I couldn’t let myself do it. The thing is…now that we have a child, it’s been a nice way for us to see how much Cooper has grown over the years. It’s kinda like collecting baseball cards. We’ve been using Minted for our holiday cards since 2011 because I’ve always enjoyed their designs. They appeal to the graphic designer in me and their paper quality pleases me greatly. Totally top notch and the user interface is really fun to work with.

Here are some of our past designs from Minted:

Mango Lassi Popsicles

Dust off your popsicle molds! Make space in your freezer (hides head in shame) because popsicle season has begun! I know, I know you can totally eat popsicles year round, but in my brain I feel like it’s only OK to do it when it’s hot outside.

Cooper’s favorite thing to get when we’re out for Indian food is a mango lassi. He also likes “chicka-ma-tikka-man-sala.”  Don’t fight him on this. I want him to say it like that forever.  So here’s my attempt to win his heart with a Mango Lassi in popsicle form!

These pops are super creamy thanks to the Greek yogurt and oh so refreshing/healthy!  Now…I’m thinking my next popsicle I make should be boozy cuz I want one geared around my adult beverage tastes. What are we thinking? I’ve already done Boozy Peach Pops and Pina Coladas. How about Mojitos? Jack & Cokes? Moscow Mules? Let’s brainstorm!
