I don’t know about you… but I am really starting to look forward to enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with my family! Maybe one of the reasons that I am getting so excited about both Thanksgiving and the Christmas holiday is because I have been hard at work on shooting some iVillage videos as a part of their Get Organized for the Holidays Challenge! What? You haven’t signed up for this challenge yet? Well then let’s get going please! Each day of the challenge you will receive an email with a daily task for you as well as a link to the full challenge post. I have had the privilege of previewing the entire program- and let me tell you- it is packed with fantastic ideas that will help you to get organized and ready for the holidays! You don’t want to miss this…. so sign up here!¬†And every week I will share with you my Get Organized Challenge companion video where Amanda Rodriquez from Parenting BY Dummies and I share our tips on getting ready for the holidays!

Okay…. back to some great ideas I found this week around the web that will be perfect for Thanksgiving!

What Jill (from ScaryMommy) is doing is amazing. Matching up Moms that can help with Moms that need help this Thanksgiving is such a great idea. I am honored to be a small part of her efforts!
