Being Green

Be Green with UnPaper Towels

One of my favorite ways to reduce waste is by being green with unpaper towels. Or cloth towels if you don’t know what I mean! There is no need to buy rolls of paper towels wrapped in plastic any longer. Green City Living has perfected their unpaper towel design and you are going to love […]

Rainforest Alliance Roses found at Kroger Stores

Once in awhile I am a lucky girl and Hubby surprises me with flowers. I have to admit that I don’t really think about where they come from, but now that I am learning about Kroger’s Rainforest Alliance roses, I know that nothing less than that certification will do from now on. I think Hubby […]

Dairy Free Fruit Parfait

P’Diddy’s favorite breakfast we call the ‘Chick-fil-A Yogurt’. It is an item he orders frequently at that restaurant because he likes it so much. One day I asked him if he’d like me to try and make it at home and he said yes! I now make it all the time, but with a twist […]

Tips for Talking to Kids about Marijuana

Who would have thought that watching people smoke marijuana, or even more often smelling it nearby, would become such a common thing. It is here in Colorado.

Keep Kids Moving: Pledge No More 24 Colorado

I consider Colorado a healthy place. This is my third state I’ve lived in, in less than eight years, and nothing compares. There are bike lanes on every road.

Warriors Gear from Kids Foot Locker

I know I talk about my sporty boys a lot, but I don’t think I’ve told you about our favorite teams. It’s funny how a family can differ on the teams they route for. Actually, it probably makes it more interesting, right? As they discuss and argue and tease about the latest sports news. O’Bear […]
