Earth Day

Tomorrow is Earth Day and it's easily my favorite day at the College I work at. We have a delicious, organic lunch outside with music and it's so wonderful! Everyone has such a great time and there are so many ways to learn about living a sustainable life.
We have representatives from local and national environmental groups set up tables to educate people (and usually give away free water bottles or something!) We have a table set up from 10,000 villages to buy beautiful fair trade products. We usually have a couple of hybrid cars on show. And we always have our local bike shop here with bikes for sale and demonstrations. But this year, I'm most excited because they're doing free bike repairs! My bike has been out of commission for sometime because one of the tires went all wonky (that's a technical term) on me and I haven't gotten it fixed yet. I never ride my bike because I'm not very brave when it comes to riding in the road and (come closer I need to whisper this) Derek never learned how to ride a bike so it's no fun riding by myself. Also my lack of stamina and total inability to breath after riding really deters me from doing so. I'm going to sell the bike before I move, but it makes sense to get the tire fixed to make the most money.
So those are my plans for earth day - save money and have tons of fun! What are your plans?

Coupon Clipping Fiend!

I never look over and see who's following me on my blog. Mostly because the number never changes so usually looking over is disappointing. I should probably be more interesting if I want people to read this. Or you know, I could post more.
But imagine my surprise when I did look over today and not only do I have a new follower, she happens to be one of my BFF's who has a blog and DIDN'T TELL ME! Which is fine, I'll forgive her. But you should really go check out her blog because A) she's fabulous in real life B) her blog is way more interesting than mine (I'll work on that) and C) this lady can help you save big bucks! I hope that one day I can be as good at saving money as she is. I'm amazed at how much money she saves. She is my guru. Though I'll never be quite as good as coupon clipping as she is because I usually don't plan before going to the grocery store, or if I do I might forget to make a list or actually print out coupons. I'm working on it. Her blog is teaching me well.

So go, visit, and learn!

Stick a fork in me, cause I'm done!

You know how when you're in school and graduation is approaching you get senioritis? Well I have that right now. I'm so ready to move and start this exciting new thing that I've kind of checked out in the other parts of life. It feels like I'm in limbo. I don't like it. If you have any solutions to cure this problem of mine you just let me know!
