Given the current midwinter weather, we’ve long said goodbye to the beautiful golden glow our skin had all summer.

Celebrate In Style With Zulily!

While you’re out painting the town on New Year’s Eve, there’s no reason not to start your little ones with a New Year’s tradition, too. Why not let them dress up while you’re donning your finest party wear? One of my friend’s favorite memory is New Year’s Eve when she stayed with her grandmother. She dressed up for her own party and she and her grandmother made confetti and rang in the New Year, too.

With today’s sales at zulily, you can find plenty to make that New Year’s celebration extra special. And if you spend $50 or more, use coupon code GA8967 to save $5 on your order.

Tutus are all the rage for little girls, and I see them featured in a sale almost every day. But I don’t think I’ve seen this line before . . . Featured at zulily today, you’ll find some of the cutest and most affordable tutus I’ve run across!

When Amanda Moreno Duke’s little girl was invited to a princess party, Amanda made her a fluffy tutu to wear. Of course, everyone loved it. Before long, Amanda was making tutus for other little ones, and Cutie Pa Tutus was born, fulfilling Amanda’s dream of being a work at home mom. Her signature Pa Tutus are full of twirly, girly, pom-pom-filled whimsy that tiny princesses everywhere will adore. Reasonably priced at $21.99, they come in Small, Medium, Large and a size for infants. Just right for your cutie-patootie!

Get a jump start on that perfect Christmas dress for next year. I love smocking, but sometimes, the price on smocked clothing is a real put off. But not so with these dresses by Candy Land. Enjoy super savings and gear up for next year’s holiday season with frocks full of Thanksgiving turkeys and Christmas cheer. $28.99 to $29.99 for these beautiful dresses and jumpers. I love this one for the spring and will probably wind up getting it for my granddaughter!

And while we’re talking smocked dresses . . . check out these year-round styles from Rosalina. With cute embroidery on heirloom fabrics, these sweet outfits are timelessly adorable. I remember the smocked dresses my mom made for me when I was a wee lass! A lot of love went into those dresses! Tiny tots love them because they are comfortable and easy to wear. This sale also includes fabric toys and calendars – so many possibilities, so little time! Dresses range from $26.99 to $28.99. I think this dress would be a perfect Easter dress.

When her daughter tried squeaker shoes, Mooshu Trainers’ creator was thrilled to find that they fit correctly and helped with stability and balance. Plus, the squeaker encouraged her daughter to walk heel to toe (that’s the only way the squeaker works). Now, Mooshu Trainers bring the benefits of squeaker shoes to your kiddo with a focus on width and flexibility while maintaining cute style. Aren’t these boots adorable? Prices range from $9.99 to $14.99.

Best Christmas Cities for Children

In the minds of children–and lots of adults–Christmas morning should be snowy and cold. What could be better than waking Christmas day to stockings stuffed to overflowing, presents piled beneath the tree, and then later, trying out some of your new toys with other kids?

The Martin Prosperity Institute, the world’s leading think-tank on the role of sub-national factors – location, place and city-regions – in global economic prosperity, has developed a list of the 20 best cities to be on Christmas day. The Institute looked at four criteria: (1) the over-abundance of other children in the region; (2) the number of toy and game stores per capita; (3) the number of candy stores per capita; and (4) the probability of having snow on Christmas Day.

Well, I’m saddened to say that not a single Southern state made the list. Although I’ve never spent Christmas anywhere but South Carolina, I think the South is a pretty good place to spend Christmas and I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be. So, I’m not singing the lyrics “It’s December the 24th and I’m longing to be up North . . . ” I’m not and I never will!

I love my Northern friends, but I don’t want to live in a place where it snows all winter. I think snow is beautiful, but day-to-day life seems to be a whole lot easier in the absence of it. As far as the other criteria, they sound pretty cool and I can see why they would make a city kid-friendly.

The truth is that no matter where we live, we reflect on the Christmases of our childhoods and long to be there (or somewhere that reminds us of that place and time). So whether or not your city made the list of Best Christmas Cities for Children, I hope you’re spending Christmas day with the people you love and cherish. And if you gotta have snow, maybe you can convince Uncle Harry to climb on the roof and sprinkle down some flour or something.

Merry Christmas all from the sunny state of South Carolina! May your Christmas be merry and bright–and white if that’s what you really, really want!

Christmas Cheer In Camouflage~Allen in Iraq

Marci’s husband Allen is serving in Iraq and won’t be home for Christmas. A National Guardsman, he’s been away for a little over three months. This is Allen with his daughters–twin six-year-olds and a four-year-old. Aren’t they adorable?

As a National Guard Reservist, Allen took time away from a civilian job that paid more than he is making while he serves our country in Iraq. To help with expenses, Marci has been selling things on eBay and doing whatever she can to balance her family’s budget.

When Marci shared this information with me, she made it clear that she wasn’t whining: “We are proud to serve!” She stated that her family knows they will have to do without some of their “wants” to take care of their needs. Without question, military families make huge sacrifices in service to our country!

Marci says that her girls have been asking their daddy to send them a soldier doll for Christmas. Santa looked for the dolls, but couldn’t find one that fit his budget.

After reading Marci’s story, I found myself wishing I was able to give more than one bear per family. Phone calls are infrequent—because Allen’s mission is classified, Marci can’t call him. So, she and the girls anxiously await his phone calls. And as the mom of a soldier, trust me, juggling time differences–especially with little ones and bed times–is a difficult task.

Marci and girls, I hope this Cuddletunes Bear helps you to miss Allen a little less when you are able to hear his voice with a squeeze of the bear’s hand.

Merry Christmas and God bless you, Marci, Allen, and girls!

Marci is one of six winners of a Cuddletunes Bear. Find out how this giveaway took on a life of its own by clicking here.
