GTT: Earth Day + Challenge #ClothDiapers

 GOOD MORNING! and Happy Earth Day! Just about to take Eliada (she's now 5!) to school. Check out my Instagram to see what she wanted me to put on there! I will probably do a life update on my Youtube Channel sometime this week, so head on over and subscribe, if you haven't already! And welcome to my new readers, I saw a jump in numbers this past week. If you are new to my channel, welcome! And just to introduce myself, I'm a mom of three girls, married now 10 years, and we use cloth diapers, baby wear, recycle and lots of other "crunchy" things in our family. The girls don't have any electronic toys, I cook at home 80% of the time and we eat dinner together as a family!

Oh and what the heck is GTT? Green Tip Tuesday! It's a weekly series where I share how you and your family can been a bit more nice to mother earth. If you have any crafts, photos, ideas to share, feel free to email me and you can be featured on GTT!

Moving on.... today is Earth Day and also my sisters birthday! She's two years younger than me, but lives four hours north of us, so we haven't seen her in a while! Miss her tons and she's getting married this December, so that might be a fun vlog :)

So, we're not doing much to celebrate Earth Day, how about you! Leave a comment below or post on my Facebook page what you did to celebrate! Usually some local stores have some sort of offer, giveaway or give out reusable bags, but haven't seen much about that this year.

But, just as you see I wanted to let everyone with little ones know that the Flats and handwashing Challenge is coming up!! How earth-friendly can you get. What exactly is this challenge? Well, first you have to have a baby or someone that is still in diapers and then you have to only use a certain type of diaper called a flat and, last but not least, you have to wash it by hand! Not touching your washer or dryer all week! I have done this challenge twice and it is not hard at all. Head on over to for more information and to sign up for the challenge!

I'm still thinking if I am going to sign up or not. Annaleah, my 20 month-old has already shown signs of potty training and I just ordered her some Grovia trainers, but who knows, maybe flats will help her out a bit. And I was in the same boat two years ago, our first challenge, Eliada was also starting to potty train and I was pregnant with Annaleah and I actually didn't have to wash that many diapers! woohoo!

And if you don't have babies... maybe join the challenge and wash all of YOUR "undergarmets" by hand! How much fun would that be! NOT!


So I hope ya'll have a great Earth Day, and like the pic above says.... "Make Every Day Earth Day!" At least once a week, I load up the girls and we go to the recycling center and they love it! I sooo wish that our area had a recycling program or more eco-friendly initiatives, but there has to be interest first. Be friends with Mother Earth! Would you throw garbage on your friends lawn? I don't think so, so give it a try.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
