Wish you were on an Island?. . . Me too!

"An Island Life" has created this fun and fabulous meme for all of us ~ If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below.

My question for this week:
What are 1 or 2 things that you are really trying hard to do on a regular basis to help "Save the Environment and to Go Green"?
(My answer is: I am a very faithful recycler. I try to only use paper bags at the store, or better yet to take my own bag with me - love the ones from Trader Joe's ! Try to use cloths when cleaning and not so much paper towel! Use products to clean that are environmentally friendly!)


Another Wordless Wednesday as I try to catch up!

THIS is where I want to be right now!!!
Amazing. . .no??!!!
P.S. My son took this pic last year when he went to
Kauai for his 30th B-day!!


Wordless Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. . . . . . .

HAPPY SPRING. . . It's coming soon!
The tulips are not quite ready to go yet, but I am soooo ready for Spring this year! These are our tulips from last Spring in our neighborhood!
Off for a few days ~ See y'all when I get back!


Yep ~ It's Aloha Friday time gang!!

Wow ~ I don't know where the week went??!! One gorgeous day on Wed. with temps close to 80* so I did get out there on the golf course! (Even us girlies that work at home have to take breaks now and then!) Ahhh. . . . The start of my weekend ~ I always look forward to it!! Don't forget to visit "An Island Life" for more information on Aloha Friday!! My Aloha Friday question is:

When was the last time you cried and why? (Remember, this can be happy, sad, crazy. . .whatever!!)

Since I knew what my questions was going to be all week, I sorta had my answer planned (which was crying from laughing so hard from a video someone sent me on a budweiser commercial)But, things change. But things change and my new answer is ~ Yesterday I found out a good friend of mine has breast cancer again, so the tears came freely! (Please keep her in your prayers! I am a cancer survivor also, so I know how scary this is for her!)


Did you know? ~ MARCH is Women's History Month!

Did you know that March is Women's History Month?? I didn't! (Thanks to Marybeth over at Blogmania, I have been able to find tons of fun facts and information on this subject!) From WomensHistoryMonth.gov ~ "The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in paying tribute to the generations of women whose commitment to nature and the planet have proved invaluable to society."

A Resolution was passed in 1987 to expand the celebration of Women's History to the entire month of March & has been approved every year since then! This year's theme honors women who have taken the lead in the environmental or “green” movement. Here's to all the amazing women we know!!

P.S. Also, thanks to Julie for the Friendship Award! :)
