going green...

by not driving! yesterday was earth day~ we did a little work in our garden, watched Ratatouille, again, and then decided to get out of the house and do some thrifting. we didn't get far from home, we only got to the nearest starbucks in fact, and my van started making an odd noise. the odd noise very quickly turned into a loud, impossible to ignore noise. we pulled into a parking lot and tony took a quick peek under the hood to find that a belt had come off. so i sat with harper and esme' in the van in the parking lot while tony took a taxi home to get his car (thank goodness we got coffee before the loud noise!) my van was towed so tony's car took us thrifting instead. i found several yards of cotton and cordouroy to sew clothes for the kids and just maybe something nice for myself. tony found a pint glass to add to his collection, and esme' found a dora the explorer scooter.

i spent the rest of the afternoon entering bloggy giveaways~ crunchy domestic goddess is having a great earth-mother giveaway at her blog, and you can find hundreds of fun giveaways at the bloggy giveaway carnival hosted by don't try this at home. good luck!
