Green Tip Tuesday - Drink Green

Ahhh, sorry I'm late posting, but today was a busy & successfull day. Well sort of... Walgreens was out of some of their deals, but all is well! I spend $0 because I didn't buy anything! Hubs was happy about that! lol

So today I was thinking about what to blog about and then I was talking to my mom about the wedding we went to this past weekend. So I thought I'd post about how to drink "Green!"

  • First... go with GLASS! It's much more prettier, no? And recycling glass is more eco-friendly than recycling cans.
  • Less packaging = Less waste!
  • Buy a Keg! What? Yes, buy a Keg! Why? Well, like the tip above, less waste!
  • No "SOLO" cups. Especially if you have a keg use reusable cups that way those "SOLO's" won't end up not "SOLO" in the landfill!
  • Organic! Yes, there is organic beer. I have never seen it, so don't know if it's much more expensive, but ask about it.
  • Local Brewery... it's always best to buy anything local. Some local breweries may even be better than the ones you drink now!
Some additional wedding tips. If you're going to a wedding and know some of the other guests going, offer to go together (designate a driver) and split on the cost of drinks & gas! Agree on a cut-off time. This may be awkward or weird, but it's never very nice to see a close friend so drunk they can't even stand up.

So next time you go to a wedding be a bit more greener! Oh and if you're wondering, I don't drink. I did go with Hubs to pick out a drink. We went with Crown Royal and we kept the glass, it's so pretty! We had a great time. Hubs got drunk, his cut off was 10pm, but he went till 10:30, lol.

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
