Portrait Confession

I love getting Muffin's picture taken. However, I have a serious problem actually buying frames and displaying the pictures I've just paid over $100 for. Am I alone in this?

I have a shelf on my desk that is literally over six inches high with "to be framed" pictures of my daughter in various cute stages of life. The picture on my desk of the two of us is so old that Muffin is sporting a mo-hawk and I've still got my big breast-feeding boobs. (Damn, I miss those boobs!)

It's not like frames are that hard to come by - I've seen some great ones in Kohls and TJ Maxx. However, every time I go near the frame section I start to get overwhelmed with the choices! Do I want wood, silver, bronze, one with a cute phrase, one with intricate details, what do I want!?! Before you know it I'm freaked out and moving on to the shoe section (because damn, who can't use more shoes!).

Still, we just got some great family pictures taken and there is a super cute one of me and Muffin. I'm going to pull on my big girl panties and make a choice. Today. Whew.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one to get overwhelmed by the frames. Not only are there too many choices, but I want all my frames at home to coordinate! Which is hard.

I have a bad confession to make. I haven't had Punkin's picture made professionally since she was 6 months old. She is now almost 3. We just haven't been able to afford it, but I feel terrible!

Yes, coordinating frames are important - yet stressful. Why must it be this way!

I look for coupons from JC Penny and take Muffin when I can get prints for $3.99. Score!
