Well, I guess I had this coming.  I have put off the task of uploading, downloading, editing, organizing, and printing pictures since…lets go with….the advent of the digital camera!  It is sad.  Sure, I have them on my computer, but it’s just not the same as having them placed with love inside a nice photo album.  And for our one year anniversary, Matt told me that he was going to get our scrapbook started (he even bought glue-sticks…How cute is that?)  So this weekend I finally forced myself to sit down and get my share of the pictures in order (I still have not printed any pictures from my bridal showers or the honeymoon!)  I spent 4 hours on Saturday editing.  Then I went to Wal-Mart, only to find that their price per picture was outrageous, and every photo kiosk was taken.  I go to Walgreens and CVS and came to the same conclusion:  Printing these photos is going to be a pain in my butt and my bank account!  I spent two more hours Saturday night uploading pics to because I discovered that I could get $0.09 prints by choosing the online service, instead of going into the store.  Convenient, right?  WRONG!  Apparently was not ready for my 538-print order.  The service kept freezing around photo #44.  LAME!  So, in a second attempt today, I spent another 3 hours regrouping the photos into uploads of 20 at a time.  I got about half-way through before I realized that when you add shipping and handling, it would cost MORE than if you just waited in line at the store and printed the over-priced pictures yourself.


Thank God I have Matt!  He quickly intervened and found a brand-new method to order low-priced prints online:  Google!  Of course!  Google does everything short of making babies, why shouldn’t they have a photo service?  Why didn’t I think of that?  Anyways, we uploaded 600 photos Picasa and ordered from SnapFish for around $80.  They should be here by Thursday.  Finally!  Anyway, I thought I’d share a few…There are 596 more where that came from ; )

    Also, Matt just did the math and he would like for me to point out that it comes out to $3.78 per roll when you print your pictures with SnapFish. Also, SnapFish gives you the first 25 pics free. I keep you updated about the quality and such when we get them in…
