Why We Live and Buy Green – Seventh Generation Green

I've often talked about when and why I started "going green". There is something about having a baby that makes a mama want to protect, prevent and do what's best. Three years ago when I was pregnant with LA I knew there were many changes we needed to make and I was determined to change one thing at a time. We've come a long way in these past three years and I've learned a lot. I am also the first to admit I wish I knew more and I wish I had … [Read more...]

Eco-Friendly Pest Management (Guest Post)

Garden

It may seem the wrong time of year to start thinking about your garden; however maintenance of your flowers and plants needs to continue all year round – even during the cold winter months.

But now we know how damaging these types of chemicals can be, we need to look to … [Read more...]

The Family’s Second Car – What Do You Have?

Four Door Sedan

Seven years ago I didn't have a clue I would be having more babies so when it came to buying a car, I bought a car that was definitely a single woman's car. It is a 2 door Honda Accord. I loved this car when I first got it! I got the sunroof, the 6 disc CD changer (yes, CDs were still in back in 2005!) and it was just a car I loved driving! Now that we are a family of five, it's not a car for us. Over the summer we did get a mini van (we … [Read more...]

An Exciting New Way to Play Bingo!

Bingo

Recently I have been reminiscing about the days when I was younger. Granted, I'm not old, but to think that I was an adult 15+ years ago makes me feel old! Time has been slipping past us as we rush through our busy schedules. My grandmother used to play bingo a lot. She truly enjoyed the game and she loved getting out of the house to go play at a local bingo hall. I remember her having the game at her house and my sisters and I always looked … [Read more...]
