Things I’m Giving You

Remember when I said I wanted to have a Reverse Shower and Giveaway Day? Well, you all agreed with me and thought it was a fabulous plan and started filling out the form and sending things. Take a look at what’s here already, these are products from folks I’ve followed on twitter for years. They’re from people who have been in my home, and from corporations that really want to be part of the online conversation without being obnoxious about it. Thank you. All of you. I’m setting a date …

Homecoming

We’re back from nine days of family time. We left San Francisco early this morning so that Jane could get to a party that started at 4.30.

I love my bracelet and I know y’all do too because I get unsolicited compliments on it all the time. Dillon Rogers has a new line out …

These are the Aunties

A few months ago all us Gottliebs were in New York City for Snowpocalypse ’11. The last night we were there I had a handful of friends meet for drinks at the hotel while Mr G and the kids hung out and watched a movie. As I was preparing to go down to the bar Alexander was taking out his contact lens. Or at least he was trying to. His eyes were so dry from the cold and wind that he was having a real struggle, and since neither Mr …
