New Year's Evolutions

The week between Christmas and New Year's Day is one of my favorite times of the year.
The shopping is done, the house is decorated, the gifts are wrapped, and unwrapped, and everyone is off from school or their job. There are relatives to visit, parties to attend, and time to relax a bit. This year was  busier than last with  Doctor visits for both kids, whom now seem to be on the mend. 
The New Year brings so many resolutions and hope to make life better in someway.  Diet plans, exercise machines, health clubs, storage solutions, and home improvement thoughts are all over the place.  I could pick a diet to follow, OR  just eat better food.  I could pick an exercise machine out to use, OR go outside for a walk.  
  Perhaps for me, my resolution is not a resolution but an evolution to improve upon conservation of natural resources.
 Paper and Plastic goods is a place for me to start. I was following  Project Green Bag on Twitter one night and found myself the lucky winner of a tote bag from this company.  The bag is made in the California, !00% biodegradable, 100% cotton, washable, and offered in different styles.Check out their web site to order your own bags and read about their news.  It is a roomy bag, easy to load up at Target or the grocery store.  The Project Green Bag has made me take note to all the bags I am accumulating since stores are offering reusable bags.  Either way, you need a bag, made from some resource, so pick out a natural material bag.  Here is the evolution for me, use  bags I already have, All the time.
I forget the bags,  so here is a solution to that: The Tote Buddy , organization. 
It keeps all your bags together, from falling out of the car, out of the shopping cart, and flying away in the wind.  The binder type organization keeps the bags flat and comes in different patterns.  Swing on over to her web site to see how it works, and the Woman behind this great idea.
HAPPY NEW YEAR

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews. My kitchen sink has never shined so much, the bathrooms are cleaner, and now Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care is now here! It is new, it smells nice, and it is so easy to use. Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara. Easy to understand directions are on the back of the box, and don't forget to cut out the Box Tops For Education Label before you toss the cardboard into your recycling bin.   How to make this warm hearty meal for your family: open a box of Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet. I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o
