Happy Earth Day+Let's GO TEBOW!!!....from a FRENCH TOAST FANATIC!

Happy Earth Day!

I'm really trying to be more "GREEN" and I love this beautiful Earth God created for us to enjoy! We need to give our planet some lovin'! I'm trying to do better by:

1. Making my own laundry detergent (it works GREAT and is SUPER DUPER CHEAP!)
2. Using less paper towels
3. Trying to RE-USE EVERTHING if possible! I rarely through anything away that still 1 has some value! I even used my one leftover carrot shaped treat bag from Easter to take mini bagels in to work all week *proud!*
4. I try to walk when I can instead of driving which is hard to do in my town but when I can I Love it!
5. I hang clothes to dry as much as possible so I don't have to use the Dryer.
6. I try to remember to use my fabric/reusable shopping bag

I hate to stop at random # 6 and I guess there are some other little things I try to do but I can't think of them right now...but I know I can do better...I'm keeping my eye out for ways to be more Green...

I'm really thinking about having a GIVEAWAY soon on my blog so keep tuning in!!!

Today was good...I've been feeling super TIRED lately...not sure why...so I took my normal afternoon nap but I was ready to get some stuff done when I woke up around 7:30. I accidentally forgot about my bible study tonight so I didn't set an alarm and woke up when it was already half way over...BOO HOO! I was disappointed but there was nothing I could do so I decided to get some things done around the house. Got all our dirty clothes washed and most put up...just a few of mine left hanging out to dry...and got some cards written while I watched some of the NFL draft with Trav....SPILLER #9 OVERALL PICK...YES!!! And WAY TO GO TEBOW...such a great guy! Good luck in DENVER!

Tomorrow will be a very pleasant Friday workday because I'll be in a Foster Parent Association Conference in Greenville all day and last year it was pretty good...learned some neat stuff...and they had some good fresh fruit...little things mean a lot when it comes to perks on the job! haha!

Well...gotta go check and see how the Draft is going and start getting ready for bed. Hope you have a FAB FRIDAY!

Love,
Laura

P.S. I am now officially addicted to French Toast! I have had it for dinner atleast 7 out of the last 10 days! LOL! So simple and so low in points (that's Weight Watchers Talk!)

4 pieces light bread
2 egg whites
cinnamon
1 pkg.splenda
sugar free syrup
Pam spray

Spray skillet with PAM.
Dip bread in egg whites and place on skillet (I use my big, flat skillet).
Sprinkle with cinnamon and 1/2 pkg. splenda
After a few minutes, flip and sprinkle cinnamon and splenda on the other side.
Keep flipping and cooking until the toast turns golden brown and toasty
Plate up, cover with Sugar free syrup and ENJOY!!!

But don't go overboard like me! My hubby said he needs to stage a french toast intervention!
