Happy Earth Day, everyone!

I love all things EARTH: traveling it, preserving it, eating from it! :) 

I am no hippie and I am FAR from a gung ho "Crunchy Mama" but I do do a few things in our family to protect our resources and try not to be wasteful.

One thing we have done this spring is plant a vegetable garden. I don't have a green thumb. You might say that while the Midas touch turns everything to gold, my touch kills everything. I put forth a good effort but my efforts with yard work have yet to be successful... until now!

We have peas, squash, and cucumbers beginning to sprout.

Another I try to do is bring reusable bags with me to the grocery store. Not only does it save Wal-Mart from giving me a zillion plastic bags,  but it makes my life easier. I can fit all my groceries in 4 bags if the cashier is a good bag packer. 

Sometimes they just look at me like I'm CRAY CRAY when I ask them to use my reusable bags. Am I alone in this?

My FAVORITE thing we do is drink our water with a Brita filtered water pitcher. I cannot even begin to tell you how much dinero we have saved by doing this. I drink water like none other and could easily drink 8 bottled waters a day. This is so much easier for us and saves us from using countless plastic bottles.

A moment of silence will be observed today at 2:50PM EST to remember the tragic bombings that took place in Boston just one week ago. 

Please pause to remember those lives that were taken and everyone who was impacted.
