Final Reveal with Next Day Blinds!

First I met with the Next Day Blinds in-home design consultant.

Next she took me through their selection of window covering options that are safe for kids.

Now I get to show you the final product!

We chose fabric roman shades with a looped cord from Next Day Blinds

Photobucket

The looped cord means there is no loose-hanging cord that might be dangerous to young kids. It's a single, continuous cord tightly wound around an anchor that is attached to the edge of the window sill or wall.

The shades I chose are a thick fabric that are also light-blocking...to help The Twofer sleep in longer. And let me tell you, it's working! Because my windows aren't able to have the shades mounted inside the sill, designer Leslie made it a point to measuer a little wider than my windows to cut back on some of the light that spills out from the sides. Brilliant!

Roman shades are perfect for a girl's room

As my twins get older, they are going to want to redecorate their room with a more sophisticated look. Now they don't have to worry about their windows. The roman shades I chose fold up nicely and create their own unique valance when raised.

 There were so many options I was thrilled to have the personal assistance of Leslie, a true professional and terrific designer, walk me through all the options. If you are looking for new window coverings and you are in the DC area be sure to use Next Day Blinds free designer service.

Enter to win $200 to use at Next Day Blinds!

If you haven't entered yet, I'm giving away $200 to one lucky reader to use at Next Day Blinds HERE.

What do you think of the new roman shades?

Holiday Time-Saving Tips

I've been a Bank of America customer for years. I can easily check my account, schedule payments, and set up alerts all without ever having to leave my cozy warm home.

It is especially nice to NOT have to make a stop at the bank during the crazy holiday season. I've got enough stops to make that one more could throw off my whole day.

Speaking of not making another stop, did you know that Mapquest has a "route planner" where you can plug in your stops and it gives you the fastest route? And another tip: before you head out shopping, try and make sure that what you are off to buy is in stock.

Save Time with Bank of America

In addition to online banking, Bank of America offers...

Mobile Banking - download the secure app to locate ATMs, pay bills, even transfer money!

Deposit Image ATMs - how cool! You just insert your check into the ATM scanner (no envelope or deposit slip) and you get an image on your receipt as proof!

For more tips be sure to follow @BofA_Tips on Twitter.

Enter to win a $50 Bank of America Gift Card!

To enter leave me a comment with your time-saving tip that helps you get through the holidays!

PJs for the Cure Helps You Stay Cozy and Helps Kids With Diabetes (Winner Update)

Each year more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with juvenile diabetes

{12/15/10 UPDATE: winner of the PJs for a Cure is - Brett! Congratulations and check your email!

I met a woman a few months ago who's two year old son had recently been diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. She was telling me the stories of having him diagnosed, and of learning how to treat him. None of it was pleasant. Sometimes a two year old just doesn't want to sit still, and when you throw a finger prick in there I can only imagine the screams.

But now I know one fun way to help her and all the other parents out there struggling in their first few years of learning about juvenile diabetes.

100% of Every Dollar used to Purchase PJs from PJs for the Cure Goes to JDRF

Many of us talk about ways to give and one thing we look at is how much of our donation goes to 'administrative costs'. With PJs for the Cure you know that your donation really is going to benefit juvenile diabetes research.You can choose from a variety of fun designs for women, girls and boys pajama sets. They are manufactured in the United States and are priced very reasonably: $40 for womens and $25 for girls and boys.

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

All you have to do is leave a comment telling who you plan to see the movie, 'Tangled' with! Or, if you saw it, what did you think?
