To do, or not to do...

Our son is now almost 11 months...after he was born, I had all these grand ideas about being more 'green', eco friendly...especially with products that involve him.
First, I wanted to eat more organic foods myself (since I was/am nursing), I do a little, but the prices of organic food just kill me! I know, I know, it is such a small price to pay to not have pesticides in your body, but my goodness! Organic chicken will TOTALLY break the bank!
Then I wanted to cloth diaper...I researched the heck out of it, found the brand I wanted to try (bumgenius) and then trekked 40 minutes 1 way several times to buy diapers from Cotton I don't have a "full time stash", but enough to probably get me through a day. And I've used them a few times...but I just can't get into it! I think it's because I've been using sposies for so long, and because I'm unorganized...maybe if I was organized and everything was neat and handy I would get into also might have something to do with how poofy my little mans bottom and frontal area looks like with a cloth diaper on...and the fact that I am a little concerned that some of my friends might tease me...not to mention, that when I did use CD's all day one day, the hubs kind of scoffed at me and I felt kinda dumb...but, these excuses may just be my procrastination in disguise...hmmmm.....
Now I'm on the 'making baby food' kick...this one just may stick!! I made sweet potatoes and acorn squash. And, so far Michael has tried both and likes them both! Although, I have peas, carrots and green beans to make and I haven't done it yet...AND I would L-O-V-E to have a Beaba Babycook to use (I'm the sucker who gets sucked into every new/cool product out there, even though my blender worked just fine!!).
This is where my procrastination gets the best of me...actually, I think procrastination has probably gotten the best of me in everything I've wanted to do so far...even the eating organic deal--because that means you have to cook, which I haven't been the biggest fan of doing ever since it became something I had to do, not just something I wanted to do...
To do, or not to do seems to be the question of my life....So, now I just need to find a way out of my procrastination ways...Any suggestions?!?

Thursday, June 3, 2010 Giveaways is currently sponsoring a giveaway for 6-@bumGenius one size 3.0 #clothdiapers. Here is a link to their facebook page so you can participate to win as well!/posted.php?id=56135876030&share_id=122701781103887&comments=1#s122701781103887

Once reaches 5700 followers they will randomly draw a winner from one of the eligible comments.

What I like best about is
1.) Their great giveaways!! It seems like they are ALWAYS giving something away! They even did an impromptu giveaway yesterday (Weds. 6/2/10) for a GroVia dipe!! Now, even though I'm kind of a FB junkie, I totally missed entering by minutes, but the point is....TONS of freebies!!
2.) The deals!!! It seems like at least once a week they have some kind of free, on top of the opportunity to win some free dipes right now, they are also offering this deal:
FREE one size cloth diaper with a $25 purchase at Use code PGNBJUNE (Limit 1 code per order. KC chooses brand and style of diaper. Sorry, no previous or pending orders discounted.)
3.) Other opportunities to receive free diapers when making purchases through It's their diaper dollars rewards program that can be viewed here:

Other reasons to like, especially on FB? They have so many 'fans' that when you post a question on their FB page you have a lot of friendly helpful 'clothies' (that's my word for cloth diapering peeps :P ...just made up, although it may already be used....if so sorry!! ) that give you advise from their experiences also.

Honestly, I sometimes wonder how they can do as many giveaways as they do, but...I'm not complaining!! Things must go going pretty good for them, which is great to see!!

Check them out and see for yourself!

New to this...

I'm new to blogging, so we will see how this goes! Feeling like I'm a little 'behind the times' so I'm trying to educate myself to keep up with the world today!
