Christmas Cards for Lunch

Afternoon everyone, working on my second cup of joe and I might have to have a cookie too :)

Today’s lunch was super healthy and delicious!

I made a salad full of veggies+avocado and topped with home-made raspberry vinaigrette! Along with a mug full of home-made butternut squash soup, you are going to see a lot of this baby this week!

Going to finish my cookie and get back to work!

Question: Do you mail out Christmas cards? Do you like receiving Christmas Cards?

I am mailing out christmas cards/photos for the first time this year... I look forward to the variety of responses I will get. lol. (I have some cousins that I think might be a bit "opinionated" if you know what I mean).

love getting christmas cards!! I always feel bad because we only sent out 40 (I know, only right??) because we have such a large family, so some friends who sent them our way we didn't reciprocate. But we'll be sure to next year!

i love getting christmas cards but i feel like ppl my age (early 20s) don't do it :(

i always make sure to send them out to my close friends and even though it's so much work (for me) i <3 it. maybe it's so much work because i'm never ahead of the game: haven't started yet!!

I enjoy photo cards or enclosed photos in cards but everyone I know hardly "mails" anything (the old fashioned way) anymore.

Here's a helpful tip for Xmas cards; Order your stamps online at the US post office website directly and they'll mail your postage stamps instantly. I get my stamps that way all the time and get it in a day or so.

Great for packages too. Just enter the weight of package and where you're sending; then Print ship label with barcode and tape it on the package. You can schedule the postman to pick up at your door.

This saves waiting in line at the post office, grocery store, etc.

Order them here:

My family always sends out Christmas cards, I used to hate taking them when I was younger because we would spend like an hour trying to get a picture where we all look good. But now we just take a picture from the previous year of all of us which is much less painful. I LOVE getting Christmas cards too : )

Every year, I say to my husband: "We ARE sending out holiday cards this year!" And every year...I don't get too it.

Sigh -- that's what Skype is for!

This is my first year sending out cards. I think it's more exciting when you have a photo card, but we didn't do that. It's on the schedule for next year though!

I am a fitness instructor too! It is funny when people in the class think that we can just teach forever and not be sore!
