What's Better than a Turkey in the Oven at the Holidays? Two Ovens!

Frigidaire has launched a new range with Symmetry Double Ovens that can hold not one, but two 28 lb turkeys!

We have had double wall ovens for years (not Frigidaire) and they have been what makes hosting the holidays at my house even a possibility. While the bird is cooking in one oven, I can be making appetizers, baking an apple pie, or reheating side dishes that my family members bring.

The Frigidaire Symmetry range is a freestanding ranges, so you don't need the wall space, preheats in just 4 minutes, and has a Keep Warm zone.

Get Turkey Tips, Donate a Turkey to Save the Children

To celebrate the Symmetry and the ability to cook 2 turkeys, Frigidaire has teamed up with Jennifer Garner to help you with turkey tips for this holiday season.  For the first 550 visits to and Jennifer's Turkey Tips, Frigidaire will donate $1 and a turkey to Save the Children to support their US programs and families.

Disclosure: I received a gift card to purchase two turkeys this holiday season as a thank you for continuing to support Frigidaire. I was a Frigidaire Test Drive Mom a few years ago and still am loving my affinity washer and dryer. All opinions expressed here are my own and these posts are neither reviewed nor approved prior to being published. Also, my dad worked for Save the Chilren for a few years and we sponsored various children, so my interest in this program goes way beyond turkey.


What do you call Christmas cards that go out in late January?

Yesterday I was trying to focus on work but kept getting disctracted by the huge pile of Christmas cards that have yet to get addresses and mailed.


I decided to ask my peeps on Twitter what they would do.

I love Twitter.

My friend Dwan suggested I...

 late holiday cards 1


A new friend, Gwen told me her plans...

 late holiday cards 4


But the BEST idea came from another new friend, Lettergirl ...

 late holiday cards 2


 late holiday cards 3


So I ask you, how late is too late to send out Christmas cards?



Christmas clean up complete and I'm reminded why some go for the fake trees

I HATE cleaning up Christmas.

As if it's not bad enough that the house looks bare, the lights get all tangled in the tree, and I can't get everything to pack up in the same bins!

We then have to wrestle the tree out of the house.

Only to be left with...

Christmas,Christmas tree,holidays,cleaning


What do you hate about cleaning up after the holidays?



Fashion Friday for A Fashionable Christmas Tree

To be terribly honest most of our ornaments, while very high in sentimental value, rank pretty low on the fashion scale.

Probably the most hideous is the spiked cone ornament my brother made in cubscouts. It has his little school photo on there take during that "awkward" stage when the front teeth are way bigger than the head can carry.

But I love this ornament. It reminds me of my brother as I remember him when Christmas was all about being a kid.

There is room for fashion on a tree filled with sentiment

A few years ago I decided to start investing in some better looking ornaments. I'm not getting rid of the sentimental ones, but there needed to be SOME more modern, more updates, more fashionable things hanging off of our tree!

Thank goodness for Bergdorf!

The other day I was tweeting with Berdgorf Goodman (I know - SQUEEE!) and realized they have some of the most beautiful ornaments!

Love the Pashmina in this one...

You really must check them all out HERE.

Then tell me which ones you are going to buy!
