Mommy cards

As you know, my shopping habits are well documented. Between my ebay obsession and wild hairs that I get over the kids' clothes (ex: Jeans! I MUST find jeans for Justin to wear this Fall. And will I wait until August or September when they will be easy to find? Oh no, I must find them now. They will be Gap jeans with the jersey lining. And I will not pay more than I think I should.... I know. I have a problem.).

I was thinking the other day that I wish I had a personal 'business' card to hand out when I meet other moms or try making friends. I've heard of Mommy cards before, but hadn't really thought much about them, as I used to work so much that I had no personal life much less any opportunity to meet other parents with children Malaina's age. Now that my schedule is much more flexible, and we are getting involved in so many more activities, I thought it might be fun to look into. Many of the websites I found wanted a fortune for cards ($35 for 50 cards? Get outta here!), but then I found Vista Print and their very inexpensive cards. I don't know about the quality, but the price was right at $5.99 for 50 cards! This is with shipping, but after I applied a coupon code I found online. Here's what my cards will look like (I blurred out my phone numbers to frustrate all you stalkers out there. You know who you are):

Being the cheapo that I am, I chose the slowest method of shipping @21 days. I'm hopeful it won't be nearly that long. I feel sort of dorky about ordering these, but they are so dang cute that I can't wait to share them with my friends. I don't always like to hand out my regular business cards and I never seem to have a pen to scribble down my phone number. Problem solved!
