Welcome March!

I am so happy to see March this year!  It's been so cold and we've gotten so much snow this winter and I am just ready for spring! I cannot wait to take LA outside to watch him discover everything in the world outside! :) It will be so fun! The month of March brings my first Organic/Natural Baby event! This month I will write about the importance of using organic and natural products with your baby. I'll give you my opinion … [Read more...]

Seven months and counting…

 My sweet LA, I cannot even believe I am writing your seven month letter already! I know I just said that at six months, but really? Another month already? Wow. Time is flying and you are changing and doing so many new things! You are SO close to crawling! You get up on all fours and rock back and forth and even move sometimes but you just haven't been able to coordinate all four yet to really crawl! I know it won't be long! You still have the … [Read more...]

Love our Planet this Valentine’s Day!

On a day that the world celebrates love and the small things you can do to make another smile, I want to celebrate our Earth and the small things we can do to make a difference in saving our planet! J I composed this list of many small things that you might not think of, but they will make a difference….let’s get into these habits together! 1)      Don’t preheat your oven and don’t open the door when checking on your food…simply turn the oven on … [Read more...]

Moon Dog Farm Nursing Necklace Review & GIVEAWAY!

I first came across the Moon Dog Farm nursing necklaces in a search I did on Etsy. Anyone who is or has nursed an infant around 4+ months knows how easily distracted they can be. Nursing necklaces give your little one something to look at, feel, and play with while nursing. They can also be of great help to us mamas who have a baby who stays latched on and turns his head when he hears something! OUCH! J When I first looked around the Moon Dog … [Read more...]

How GREEN are you?

Good morning all!  When I logged into Twitter this morning I saw that Kelly Wels posted this link on "How green are you?"....so of course I immediately clicked on the link and was taken to a great site that I didn't know about. And, I took the quiz. Of course you all know that my mission is to be more green this year so I am VERY ashamed to admit I was only a level 2 out of 10! (SHHHHHH!!! - Don't tell! LOL)  But you know what? That just lets me … [Read more...]

You have brightened my world for 6 months!

Dear LA, I can't even believe I am sitting here writing about you being 6 months old already! Time has gone by incredibly fast and I wish it would slow down. You entered this world on my birthday and even though the joke is that I will never have another birthday because it will be all about you from 2010 and on....I can't imagine a better birthday from 2010 on. I was blessed with a gorgeous baby boy that I get to share a birthday with. My … [Read more...]

Are you ready to save??

I have been really slacking on my blogging. I guess this is something to get used to, another responsibility, isn’t it? J I have been wanting to write about the cost savings by using the Filtrete system for over a week and I am just now getting to sit down and write it! I am a total numbers person: I am big on coupons and saving ANY way I can; sales; freebies (yes, I enter all kinds of giveaways and believe it or not I actually win … [Read more...]

No bottled water – update!

So last night I asked DH how he liked using the Filtrete bottles and his answer? "It saves us money." Yup, that's it! LOL He's into saving money. I'm into saving the planet. :)  He did say (not last night, but a week or so ago) that the water tastes better than the water straight from the tap. I'd have to agree. I'm still loving our new system and loving not buying bottled water! I'll post a pic soon of our "new" bottled water shelf in our … [Read more...]

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!!  It of course seems like it flew by! I can't believe it's 2011 already. We had a great Christmas although it was extremely busy. Baby A just loved the wrapping paper. How sweet and innocent and simple is that? It won't be long before he's wanting the latest IPod like big brother did this year!! Well I have started my January mission of no bottled water. It worked out perfectly actually. We … [Read more...]

January – I’m ready!!

So my new change for January is to implement the Filtrete water station water bottles and get rid of bottled water. I am ready - my DH and DS got my water station, an extra filter and 4 extra water bottles for me for Christmas!  Ok, yes, I have been using it already, but I need to start now in order to tell you all my experiences starting in January, right?  :-)  January - get rid of water bottles February - laundry changes....dryer balls, I'm … [Read more...]

Our big change in 2010

The biggest thing we did in 2010 to lessen our carbon footprint was to use cloth diapers. I really wasn't sure how this was going to work out, but it turns out I love cloth diapering LA (my youngest son). After learning that disposable diapers can stay in a landfill for up to 500 years, I really didn't want to use them. Unfortunately we still have to use them for daycare and we keep some on hand at home in case we need them out of convenience, … [Read more...]
