Earth Day in Murfreesboro

on Friday, April 8, 2011
Yay for me, boys and girls!

I was able to get a booth at next week's Earth Day festival! I will have a booth to display my awesome cloth diapers. I plan to bring a variety of diapers. I'll also have some materials to hand out. I am so happy to have my girl murmurkibbies help me out with these materials. I also contacted Diaper Junction for some materials. I'll let you guys know what I get from them.

I'm am open to feedback with suggestions. I was thinking of bringing a bear or a baby doll for people to practice putting the diapers on. Should I bring cloth wipes and solution?

This is so flipping exciting!

Fortune Fridays

on Friday, March 18, 2011
Sorry for the hiatus last week. My good friend Raisin Girl could tell you exactly why I missed it, but maybe I shouldn't divulge EVERYTHING about my life. :)

My Top Eleven:
*You will be a great success--both in business and socially.
*You will receive unexpected support over the next week. Accept it graciously.
*Do not rush through life. Pause and enjoy it.
*Your talents will prove to be especially useful this week.
*When in doubt, let your instincts guide you.
*Your lost treasure will be found within the month.
*It is quality rather than quantity that matters. Do a good job tomorrow.
*Take no risks with your reputation.
*Take some needed time to relax in the next few days.
*Good things come in small packages. One is coming to you.
*You will discover an unexpected treasure.

The last one is so awesome because someone at the table wrote "in your pants" at the end of it. I love inappropriate jokes!

Again, there was only one duplicate for the day:
*Listen these next few days to your friends to get answers you seek.

*A fond memory will soon lead to a renewed old friendship.

My girl Nicki left me two fortunes with stories to go along:

"You will never ned to worry about a steady income."
The woman that left this was in the military.

"You will have a chance soon to make a profitable transaction."
The was left behind by a high school age boy that had to call his mom to come pay for his mean because his debit card was declined.

And the fortune that signifies the shift:

Your hard work is about to pay off.

Happy Friday! May your weekend and next week bring you much good fortune.

Fortune Fridays

on Friday, March 4, 2011
As promised, I am going to roll out the plan for the fortunes I collect at work.

Each Friday, I will share the best fortunes left behind by customers. I think it's fun to think about how these fortunes could ring true in these customers' lives. I'm just cheesy like that. I love to people watch and wonder how those people live their lives. Not in a creepy, stalker way, just in a I-have-a-very-vivid-imagination way.

Some fortunes will have a backstory, some will simply be the fortune.

Here are my top eleven:
*Linger over dinner discussions this week for needed advice.
*Now is the best time for you to be spontaneous. Serendipity!
*Your ability to love will help a child in need.
*You will be showered with good luck tomorrow!
*Travelling to the south will bring you unexpected happiness.
*The strengths in your character will bring you serenity.
*You could prosper in the field of entertainment.
*Your respect for others will be your ticket to success.
*An interesting sports opportunity is in your near future.
*Remember three months from this date. Good things are in store for you.
*We must always have old memories and young hopes.

There was only one duplicate in the batch:
Be prepared to modify your plans

I have a thing about the number thirteen. I just love it! I was born on Friday the 13th, and I also ONLY believe my fortune if the number thirteen is on the back. On these posts, I will also include the fortunes that have the number thirteen on the back. For my own personal enjoyment.

-You have a strong instinct to take care of people you love.
-Now is a good time for a new collection or hobby.
-Seek out the significance of your problem at this time. Try to understand.
-The respect of influential people will soon be yours.

And the only thirteen duplicate:
-A pleasant surprise is in store for you soon.

I have also decided to choose one fortune that signifies the shift:

Do not hide your feelings. Let others know where you stand.

I hope you guys will stick around enjoy Fortune Fridays!

Sunday Night Feeling

on Sunday, February 27, 2011
Ahhhhh!!! I wait all week for this feeling. I lovingly refer to it as my "Sunday night feeling."

As a working Mom, having a clean house is not always a reality. There are always chores to be done. ALWAYS. I enjoy having a clean house, but it is definitely not my number one priority. I know I won't to look back on Ro's young life and think of how clean my house was!

However, looking around my clean house on Sunday nights gives me a feeling of peace. I feel so accomplished. I know the next day, the house will just begin the journey to clutter town. This does not hinder my journey to the Sunday night feeling. I clean hard and go to sleep in my simple home with every little thing in its own place.

Salmon Supper

on Thursday, February 24, 2011
In addition to being green, I also enjoy cooking. I like to experiment with new recipes, as well as relying on old favorites.

I love to cook healthy and satisfying meals for my man. It makes both of us happy! Of course, not every meal I cook would be featured in Cooking Light.

I generally opt for simple but delicious meals. Tonight was not exception. We had salmon (wild caught, of course) and roasted garlic brown rice. I didn't hear a single complaint from Voltron!

Not a huge gourmet meal, but I am satisfied.
