Global Influence 2009 Holiday Gift Guide

Your girlfriend's back from her fun, family-oriented holiday weekend! Did you eat enough turkey? Heaven knows I did! I probably gained 5 lbs. but it was so worth it. My husband made a smoked turkey for the first time this year that was out of this world, while I made my traditional green bean casserole and tried my hand at sweet potato casserole with marshmallow. We also braved the Black Friday crowds - but there was no way I was waking up at 5am! Despite not making it to the outlet mall until 11am, I scored some great 50% off deals at Carter's and Old Navy. It was a great time for all, and I hope that you also built some fond memories this Thanksgiving. But I admit it feels good to be back!

Now that it is officially the Christmas shopping season, I'll be bringing you some great reviews and giveaways. I've got some pretty awesome stuff up my sleeve but in the meantime, I want to introduce you to another great holiday guide and giveaway in the blogosphere, courtesy of the Global Influence network (formerly Momfluence).
