Things Remembered Holiday Photo Contest and Giveaway

Things Remembered has a holiday photo contest going on RIGHT NOW on Facebook where someone will win $200 and their own, cherished photo will be featured in the Things Remembered holiday campaign!

I entered this photo:

This photo was taken during the Twofer's first holiday trip to New York City...a tradition that I had always enjoyed as a child. I was so happy when we finally took them to see The Tree and the angels. It's a childhood memory that now I can share with them.

What photo will you enter into the Things Remembered Contest?

It's easy to enter (took less than 1 minute) and really got me thinking about WHY I love that photo. I'd be thrilled to have Things Remember feature it.

Disney Tangled Review and Another Fun Giveaway (Update 12/14)

UPDATE: Winner is Lindsay / @middymorsel Congratulations!!

In Disney's new movie 'Tangled' Rapunzel's hair isn't the only thing that's messy.

Last weekend the Twofer and I were able to see a preview of the new Disney movie, 'Tangled' in 3D. We all know the story of Rapunzel and her being trapped in a tower with really, really, really long hair.

What I didn't know (and maybe this is the Disney effect) was the co-depent relationship she had with her mother - or really the woman she thinks is her mother but is really her captor. You see Rapunzel was stolen at birth by an old witch who wanted to remain young forever. Whenever the witch comes in contact with Rapunzel's hair, she gets a boost from a youth serum. Thus, Rapunzel is NEVER allowed outside of the tower for it's "Too Dangerous".

It take Rapunzel 18 long years to rebel and sneak outside when an outlaw, Flynn Rider, shows up at the tower and her 'mother' leaves on a 3-day trip.

Rapunzel makes us laugh with all of her firsts

From the very first time she smacks Flynn Rider with a frying pan to the first time her toes touch the grass, we giggle and smile as Rapunzel takes in the world around her. Flynn tried to get her to chance her mind about their 'deal' but Rapunzel, we learn has found her voice and is now very determined, smart and brave.

Enter to Win a Magical Glow Rapunzel Doll!


This Rapunzel doll from TollyTots (value $54.99) has hair that glows when it is brushed - just like Rapunzel did in 'Tangled'! This doll comes with a brush, mirror, shoes and a crown as well.

How to Enter

Twofer Thumbs Up for Avocados!

Avocado is for Babies

The Twofer have always loved avocados. It was a great first-food for many reasons:

it's portable and doesn't need to be warmed

It's got lots of 'good' fat for brain development plus other healthy vitamins and minerals

I don't mind eating the leftovers (only 50 calories per ounce plus sodium and cholesterol free!)

It was also the very first 3-syllable word the girls could say at nearly 1 year of age. (I swear, ask Grandma! She was there!) They pronounced it: ah-bo-ba-doh

Avocado for Bigger Kids

As the girls have grown they continue to enjoy avocado in guacamole, in salad, and on sandwiches.

One of our family favorites is chicken salad with Old Bay Seasoning (very Maryland) and served with slices of tomato and avocado. The saltiness of Old Bay pairs beautifully with a creamy avocado and a juicy tomato.

Old Bay Seasoning isn't just for crabs you know. You can use it with steamed shrimp, on french fries, and in tuna salad too. Here's our recipe for chicken salad with Old Bay to be served with tomato and avocado:

1-2 cups of cooked chicken (boiled, leftover from the grill, rotisserie, or canned)

1/4 cup of chopped celery

1/4 cup of mayo (or to taste)

1 tsp of Old Bay

1/4 tsp pepper

1 hard boiled egg chopped (optional)

Because sometimes I'm 13 again


I may or may not have been known to sing Jonas Brothers songs to myself on occasion.

I may, or may not have been caught watching DTV shows (that's Disney TV, not digital TV) without a child in sight.

I may or may not have totally rocked a Demi Lovato song on Wii Sing It: Disney Sing It Pop Hits

And now I may or may not have agreed to write about the Teen Choice Awards and Invisalign Teen's "Straight to Stardom Sweepstakes" in the hopes of someone I know winning and bringing me along. 

Because, you know, sometimes I'm a 13 year old trapped in a 30-something, minivan driving body.
