Hello all, happy Friday, we’re off to get our Christmas tree this weekend and spend a few hours in San Fran enjoying the spirit of the season.  I’ll be on KPIX Channel 5 tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m. talking about the Gift of Good program I’m participating in benefiting military families, so if you’re local turn on your TV!  Speaking of the Gift of Good, please please take a few seconds to hop over and vote for my nominated family (Lee and James) on Facebook ~ they have a chance to win $20,000 in much needed home repairs courtesy of Home Depot. 

I have a great giveaway for you this weekend from an online boutique for women and children: Tea Collection.  If you’re a mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, aunt or uncle, or basically if you know a kid and need a great gift, this is the giveaway for you!  So many adorable gifts and clothing choices for children, and ladies, there’s some really nice selections for us too!

  43. I never heard of that website before, so thats cool. At first I was like “score!” with the bento boxes, then I read they weren’t glass and was a bit disappointed. Then I saw the Zip-It game and thought “yeah I could diy that and it would be cool”; I even pinned it. Then I saw the wardrobe sets for little girls and I thought “oh yeah, that would so help my morning-impaired/dysfunctional dd (why does school have to start in the dark in the winter???) pick her own clothes and not look like she jumped in the closet in the dark with her eyes still closed (which hmm, is what usually happens).

  44. I love Tea clothes! My favorite is the Bird of Paradise dress. Although it was hard to pick just one favorite! :)

  45. Loving everything! The Dance party dress would be such a big hit with my three year old and I would LOVE the Suntuoso Stripe Cardi for me!

  48. I love it all! With 3 kids Tarjay, hand-me-downs and consignment stores are where we shop this would be a treat. I particularly love all the wrap dresses, especially the Latana dress.

  49. I love the Santuoso stripe cardi. It looks so soft and cozy. The colors are just beautiful!!

  50. I like the citi blocks in the cool colors. My son would love them! Thanks for the chance to win.


  51. My daughter and I love the girls wardrobe sets, but so hard to pick which one they are all so cute!
