REcycling is Good. PREcycling is Better!

This blog is all about my family and me and our journey to be green.  In other words, we’re trying to be healthier, smarter and care for the planet that we have so graciously been gifted.  I consider us stewards that, at the very least, should make smarter choices and clean up our own messes.

No, I don’t go around hugging trees (tree trunks are “scratchy” and don’t really smell that great), but I do think it’s important that we do our part.  And I assure you, I’m not a finger…

Friday Favorites for March 15th

Welcome to another installment of Friday Favorites!  Here, you’ll find three items that help my family in our quest to be green and healthy.

Let There Be Light

Thrift Shop

I’m gonna pop some tags, only got twenty dollars in my pocket…(from the song, Thrift Shop by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis).

As a matter of fact, when they each entered high school (they are two years…

Turn Your Trash Into CA$H

Recycling is not a new concept to most people.  People are now responding to the need for a greener planet by either reusing products around the home or recycling items they no longer wish to keep.  People are doing a better job of rinsing out their plastic containers, glass bottles and aluminum cans for pickup by the recycling agency.  More and more folks are bundling their newspapers and magazines for collection, rather than just throwing them away.  But what about those items deemed…

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
