Staying in Touch

I love sending cards.  I love picking out cards.  But gone are the days of leisurely looking through the card aisle for just the right thing.  Usually, I am grabbing bunches of cards from the checkout line at Trader Joe's.  At least they are cute! 

But now, my card sending world has been revolutionized!  There is an app called "Just Wink".  It is run by the American Greetings company. It allows you to pick out really cute, funny cards; personalize them (including adding a picture); and mail them directly from the app for $2.99.  I can't find a decent card under $2.99 at the store, and this includes mailing!

I have sent about 4-5 cards from them (including one to DH, so I could check out what they would look like), and love them!  They have so many different occassions, and tons of different cards.  Most are cute and witty.  And the best thing - I can send cards while I'm in line at the grocery store, on my lunch break, while waiting to pick up the kids, etc.  AMAZING!

This totally works for me, and is one of my favorite app finds of all time!

This is NOT a sponsored post.  Neither Just Wink nor American Greetings have ever heard of me, nor have they given me any money or product or anything.

A few weeks ago, I had to work late two nights in a row.  That meant DH was in charge of dinner - a fact that made the kids squeal, because they know Daddy will give them what they like for dinner. And he did.  One night they had pancakes and one night they had pizza.  But a day or so later I am talking to Big Man, and he is complaining about one of Daddy's dinners.   He then admits that one night he asked Daddy for some vegetables, and Daddy said, no, he had to eat pizza. The Horror!

Big Man argued that he had the hiccups and they were caused by eating too much junk.  So he wanted some veggies to make his hiccups go away.  I don't know about you, but that sounds as good a reason as any to give the boy some veggies!  But no dice, apparently Daddy told him he had to eat pizza. 

Lol. I so love that boy.  I love that when we go to a restaurant he has to debate between french fries and broccoli (and often chooses broccoli).  He loves carrots and edamame.  He likes green breans and asparagus.  What more could you want in a 6-year old boy! 

I would like it if he could teach his oldest sister and his father a thing or two!
