April Cara Box Reveal


8 comments
This month I participated in the April Cara Box Swap hosted by the Wifessionals blog.  The theme centered around earth-friendliness in honor of Earth Day.  I was excited to discover that my box had arrived to the post office on Thursday.

Normally, I can usually wait to open packages, but I was so ready to open this one to see what had arrived.  Tiffany did such a wonderful job in selecting items that were earth friendly and that matched my style and personality.




You know I just love everything!

To see the package I sent to Elise, you can check it out here.

And now on to a little photo silliness....


Happy Friday,

Earth Day 2013 + The April Conscious Box

I hope everyone had a fantastic Earth Day on yesterday.  Did you spend your Earth Day doing anything special for Mother Earth?  If not, Earth Day really is every day.  So, there's time.  :-)

As for me, I spent Earth Day engaging students in Earth friendly activities.  They transitioned through rotation stations to learn about soil conservation, soil profiles, composting, recycling, and rummaging through my first Conscious Box.  (Yes, I actually won the Conscious Box giveaway that I posted about not that long ago.  And the April one arrived on Saturday!)

The students learned about soil profiles as they created edible soil.  I will post a tutorial about that soon.  But I really want to show you what came inside my April Conscious Box.  I made a quick video after work today and as I browsed through YouTube, I realized that every Conscious Box is not the same.  Yes, some are vegan, vegetarian, and classic, but even when you subscribe to the same type of Conscious Box, you may receive different items.  At least that's what it looks like.  So, take a look inside my Conscious Box.  (I know I have a classic subscription because my box included beef jerky.  *wink*)

Ok, now on to the video:

Happy Earth Day,

Life as I Know It - Weekly Update #33

I officially made one week of work since taking a week off after my dad's funeral.  I felt like I wasn't ready for different reasons at first, but as the week progressed, I felt myself getting back into the swing of things.  Friday the kids did a culmination activity and I was pleased with their performances.  One class created songs about weathering and erosion; the other class created songs about the rock cycle.  Now what I have to do is compile the video clips into two productions so they can see them.  I know they'll be asking at the first of the week.


Well, it's that time again.  Time to go back to the drawing board concerning my clothes closet.  I bit the bullet and went on a shopping spree of sorts back in August and found lots of things at a discounted price.  Now those things are two big, but I've been making it work.  Thank goodness for belts.  But now, it's spring and I can't get by with wool skirts and different variations of black.  So, recently I found these pieces on Pinterest and perhaps I can find some things soon.



Yesterday I was supposed to leave to go to the capital city so I could be ready for the Nu Sol Hair Expo, but we were in a tornado watch and so I turned around and went back home.  Perhaps I can still make it today.  We'll see.

Happy Saturday,
