Loving the Kitchn!

Yes that's right... it's spelled Kitchn. Thanks to Pinterest, I have discovered my new favorite blog/site for recipes, design idea, DIY type projects... etc

You should check it out and see what it's all about... it's making me feel very inspired to go home and cook and design (and clean! ha, that part's important!)

Also with very honorable mention, I am LOVING Skinnytaste for great low-cal recipes and lots of vibrant pics to go with everything.

Help Save the Tigers!!

Don't Flush Tiger Forests

Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) is destroying the rain forests of Sumatra to fuel the fastest-growing brand of toilet paper in the United States today, as well as its sister institutional brand found in hotels, restaurants, and schools. The brands are called Paseo and Livi.

Stop buying Paseo and Livi toilet paper until APP stops clearing natural forest. Help us ensure a future for Sumatra's forests and the tigers, elephants, and communities they support.

Some exciting things happening at work...

So we are relaunching a long dormant division of our non-profit.... The American Association of Working People... and it's very exciting to be at the forefront of development and execution. I've never gotten to lend my opinions so freely to a project and it's really going to be an outstanding membership association when we are finished revamping everything. Basically, we are focused on providing extensive resources and education for all people... for better health, wellness, financial scenarios and career help... the limits are endless with what we are going to be able to do. 

If you are interested in learning some more about the organization as we grow and change, please follow us on Facebook here

There will be some major changes coming, to both our Facebook page and our website. 

Please place on your bookmarks, but keep in mind it's going to change it's look, vision and mission statement and benefits in the very near future (goal is by week end). You may think this website will have nothing for you, that it's not pertinent to you... but I promise, there will be content and resources for EVERYONE and that is what is so exciting! 

We also have a Twitter feed... Follow us!

Yep, definitely my cat...

Can someone please explain the sudden surge of "Keep Calm and..."

I'm suddenly seeing this trend everywhere, and especially ALL over Pinterest. Where did this whole "Keep Calm and..." thing begin and why is it so popular? 


It's true...

Left for Tumblr... and now I'm back...

So I left this blog behind and tried to start something up on Tumblr because I'd heard so many things about how much easier and nicer it was to use... well guess what? I don't like it. Maybe I just never really "got" it, but it just seems like a disorganized mess to me. Slightly restrained chaos of sorts. So here I am... after far too long away, I'm back. I'm going to need to do a lot of housecleaning with this blog and probably change a lot of things a little bit at a time... but keep checking back. I'll be giving Blogger another try and really hope our relationship blooms a bit more than last time :) 

I still wish there were more options available to me and more things for me to explore and do with this program... but it'll suffice for now.
