Long Live Summer - Shutterfly Sweeps and What I made C for her Birthday!

Shutterfly has asked me to spread the word about their Long Live Summer – Facebook Photo Contest (for US residents only).  It began on 7/9 and continues on until 8/12.  It is a multi-week summer themed photo sweepstakes with instant win prizes.  Enter using this website: http://bit.ly/sweepS
The top prize is a trip for four to The Bahamas and a professional photo shoot.  All you need to do is upload your favorite photo and caption based on the theme of the week.  You even get a gift from Shutterfly just for entering!

You can enter at any point during the 5-week sweepstakes period.

Here are the PHOTO THEMES:
•       Week 1(7/9): Americana - ended
•       Week 2 (7/16): Great Outdoors - ended
•       Week 3 (7/23): Water Fun – current week
•       Week 4 (7/30): Sports & Activities
•       Week 5 (8/6): Parties & Celebrations

Here is a run down of the best part... the PRIZES!
•      Instant win prizes just for submitting a photo!
•      Weekly prizes (contestants can enter one time/week)
•      Weekly featured photos: up to 5 weekly entries will be selected from the gallery and featured on the Facebook fan page.
•      Grand prize: trip for 4 to Bahamas, 4 nights, family photo shoot

Okay, so Shutterfly was kind enough to give me a free photo book for promoting their contest.  I have used that credit yet, but I wanted to quickly share with you the photo book that I made for Caroline's upcoming 2nd birthday.  She is all about the alphabet now, so I made her an alphabet book complete with pictures, people, and pets from her very own life!  Here is the final product, from a to z. :)

 (whoops - left out V & W in my photos!)

Thanks to Shutterfly, I'll be able to make one of these just for Vivi too!  Thanks Shutterfly!
Wishes and Walruses,

Currently Coveting...Cruise Clothes!

Soooo, I am getting REALLY excited.  The Knight and I are going on a cruise for 5 nights with two of our fave couple friends next month.  Both couples also have 2 littles b/w 14 and 18 mos apart, and I am certain that they need a break as much as we do! 

My parents are coming to stay with our girls which is SUCH a blessing.  We don't have to travel 7 hours one way to drop them off, they can sleep in their normal crib/beds, and my parents can use daycare during the day (if they want a break themselves!). 

I am so sick of shopping for work clothes (another wool blend pencil skirt? yawn.), so I find myself (almost daily) searching for the perfect outfits for our grown-up, kids-free vacation!  I have to say that I have been so successful in procuring a fun, cruise-worthy wardrobe, I might have to take two cruises, just so I can wear everything.  What can I say? I lead a very troubled life.  :)

Here are just a few items that I have picked up along the way that are going to be perfect for the AFS 2012 cruise (as well as a few more I am dying to buy, but so far have maintained a firm, responsible grip on my debit card...no promises it will stay there, though!).

This dress (in Gray and White) - got it on Zulily for $17.99!

This Esther Williams bathing suit (modcloth.com)
Beach Blanket Bingo One Piece in Red

These shorts from Anthroplogie (in coral):

I adore this print from Lilly:

And this coverup:

Less than 20 days, and we'll be cruisin'!
