Wal-Mart Photos

I don't know how many times a year I swear I will never go back to Wal-Mart.  

I always have a bad experience, come home in a horrible mood, and wish I never entered the parking lot.  Three months later their low prices lure me back in.  It never fails.

It isn't only the company that upsets me, it is the shoppers.  I have a theory that once a perfectly lovely person walks through Wal-Mart's doors all the manners, consideration, and politeness he/she has are thrown out the window.  

Yesterday I gave Wal-Mart another try because I found a deal on faux canvas photos that I couldn't resist.  

 I wanted to make a few of Ina's professional pictures into canvas art, but didn't think I could due to Shutterfly's hefty price tag (they start above $60!).  However, Wal-Mart's faux canvas prints start under $15 AND are available to pick up in an hour.

I bought them out.  No, the quality isn't the best I have seen, but they look pretty good considering the price.  Also, I know that we will probably get more professional pictures of Ina at 6 months, then a year, and then every year after that, so I don't really need something that will last a long time.  

Do you know of any other good deal picture websites?  


Abby and I had a mango - kiwi-banana -milk smoothie while waiting for Ina to wake up.  Later I munched on a Fiber One bar and an apple.

Lunch was leftovers from the night before while jumping from one conference call to the next.

Making dinner was a family affair.

We made beef stir fry -

Dan's hates getting stir fry sauce on his Christmas  PJ's.

Another good Wal-Mart find - their (deli-section) egg rolls.  


I snuck in another 3 mile run yesterday morning while catching up on Revenge.

Thought for the day


  1. Sign up for deal sites like groupon, living social, deal chicken, edeals, do a search for others and their are deals for 1/2 off canvas photos all of the time! My friend keeps trying to get me to buy a deal so I'm forced to put some travel photos on canvas. ;-)

  2. my husband does photography and we always used to order prints because it was so much cheaper until we recently discovered that Costco is SUPER cheap! we havent ordered any canvas from there but we did get 50 announcements with envelopes, 6 5X7's and about 30 regular prints all for only $27 after tax. they were pretty decent quality.
