Enter to win 'Alpha and Omega' for Movie Night and a $50 credit for Great Wolf Lodge!

Movie night is a great winter activity, even during the day

Actually, movie night has slowly turned into movie day as the weather has turned ugly, schools have closed, and the power has gone out. I was excited to have the new movie, "Alpha and Omega " for the Twofer to see this past weekend.

Both girls love animals and have seen commercials for this movie. They were really excited to watch it.

Twofer Thumbs Up for "Alpha and Omega"

"Alpha and Omega " is one part animal adventure, one part love story, with some "from the wrong side of the tracks" thrown in.

Alpha refers to the head wolf pack, and Omega is, well, not the head. In terms of kids you could say Alpha are the popular rich kids and the Omegas are everyone else. Two Alphas are committed to each other to bring their packs together so they wll be safe (from each other) and able to maintain their territory.

Problems arise when the she-Alpha who is about to get 'married', and a he-Omega are taken away by humans. Feelings are hurt, honor must be protected, yet Alphas and Omegas are falling in love all over the place! Will they be allowed to stay together? Will the lost couple ever get home?

I have no idea if the girls picked up on everything but I did hear LOTS of laughing and giggling so I know they enjoyed it.

Get "Alpha and Omega" and Get $50 off Great Wolf Lodge!

For a limited time, certain packages of the "Alpha and Omega " DVD are specially marked with coupons right on them worth $50 toward your next Great Wolf Lodge stay!

I recently had the chance to stay at a Great Wolf Lodge when I went to Texas to learn more about Cooking Matters. I did not get to play in the water park but I was blown away by what I saw from the lobby.

We are about to get hit again and I can definitely say the warm water playground of Great Wolf Lodge is sounding a lot better than our dark, cold family room!

Enjoy the movie and enjoy the coupon!

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.

 

Photobucket

 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?

Review: Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's 

I have never eaten a whole package of anything in one sitting - in my life.
Not ice cream.
Not cookies.
Not bon bons to play up the old clichÈ.

Until I discovered these...

 

Photobucket

If you haven't had them, Candy Cane Joe-Joe's from Trader Joes are like
like,
like,

Well I decided to ask my friends how they describe them to someone who has never had them.

Here's how they described Trade Joe's Candycane Joe-Joe's

"Yummy chocolate sandwich cookie with peppermint filling that has a yummy peppermint crunch"


"Thin mints on crack"

"Gone."

And my all-time fave, "The love child of an oreo and a candy cane."

Want to know more about Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's?

Visit Trader Joes online and see if there's a store near you.
Become a fan of Candy Cande Joe-Joe's (of course it has it's own fan page) on Facebook

But I hear they are seasonal and only available during the holidays.  You may want to stock up.

And now you know what to get me for Christmas.

Janine

Disclosure: I bought 2 boxes of Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's with my own money and ate one entire box myself. Well, maybe not the entire thing but pretty darn close. All opinions are my own and I have no connection to Trader Joe's other than another trip planned this week to stock up on whatever is left in the Joe-Joe's isle!

Discovery Store Toys that Dads will Love to Play

As part of my involvement with the Discovery Store Toys for a Year Giveaway I wanted to share with my readers a little more about some of the toys you can win. I've decided to group the toys together and for this post I decided to look at toys that Dads will be tempted to borrow.

NASA Space Mission

Discovery Channel Store NASA Space Mission Play Set

Living so close to the Air & Space Museum, I have a soft spot in my heart for all things NASA and especially the Space Shuttle. (Totally random tip - when visiting DC be sure to head to the Udvar Hazy Air & Space Museum where you can see an Space Shuttle up close and personal)

Discovery Walkie Talkie Watch Set

Discovery Channel Store Walkie Talkie Watch SetPerfect for the Dad, I mean kid, that likes to play spy, this set of walkie talkies have adjustable wrist bands, flip out antennaes, and VOX technology that allows you to talk without touching a button! Actually, these could come in handy at the beach, at the mall, or even as we explore Disney. I might get a second set so that each member of the family can stay in touch while we are on the go.

 

Radio Control Iron Eagle Helicopter

Discovery Channel Store RC Helicopter

Dads, be honest. Raise your hand (or leave a comment) if you already have an RC helicopter. The Mister has one, my brother has one. These were big sellers last year for the holidays and I'm guessing it was the dads buying them! Learning to fly it around the house takes some skill and patience, so it's the perfect gift for the Dad that wants to 'help'.

 

Techno Gears Marble Mania Extreme 2.0

 

With over 300 pieces, Dads and their kids can build a different marble run every day AND power it! This is like the Big Boy version of a marble run and I can definitely see The Mister not only building but naming his 'genius' marble designs. Cause, you know, boys like the name things, don't they?

Be sure to enter to win the Discovery Channel Store Toys for a Year giveaway. Click on the red button on the image below before November 20th! Then let me know if you win!

More reviews to come!

Janine

Disclosure: I received the Toys for a Year prize pack from Discovery Store for purposes to review the toys in upcoming posts and as a thank you for promoting the contest. All opinions are my own and this post was neither reviewed nor approved prior to being published.
