These dogs are having the time of their lives at their very own pool party! This took place at Lakeview Park in Nampa, Idaho. It's a great idea and the dogs clearly love it.

Our grocery store in town decided to remodel. Everything in a different place, all to improve my "shopping experience". It turned a quick 30 miniute shopping trip to into an hour long extravaganza.

Labor Day brings up images of hamburgers and the beginning of school which signals the coming end of summer. So if  you're hosting a family gathering, taking a trip the beach or sticking around the house,  Labor Day can also be a great time to be green.

Here are the top five tips to make your Labor Day a little more green this year:

(FROM: White Fence) 

#1 What would Labor Day weekend be without a BBQ? Here are some green BBQ tips:

#2. Prepare your home for winter – The extra time off is the perfect time to get your house ready for cooler weather. Potential projects include changing air filters, closing any vents in unused rooms, upgrading your home's insulation, installing radiant barrier, caulking windows and doors and installing a programmable thermostat.  

# 3.Use real plates – While they can be tempting, it's much easier on the earth to skip the paper and plastic plates, utensils and napkins by serving your food with reusable items. 

#4. Carpool – Labor Day weekend is one of the busiest weekends as far as traffic is concerned. Whether you're taking a trip with family or just heading over to a friend's house for a barbecue, see if you can carpool to reduce your carbon footprint. If you're hosting a party, try to arrange a carpooling scheme for your friends.

#5. Serve green food – An easy way to make your festivities more eco-friendly is by serving local, organic and seasonal food. In early September, foods in season include peppers, corn, berries, tomatoes, and onions. Shop at a farmers market to make sure your food is local and check to make sure the produce you are eyeing is organic.  

Thanks to White Fence and Just Energy for these great ideas.

While this sign is probably photoshopped, it also has a ring of truth for both genders.
We've all seen the pictures on Facebook that burn our eyes & we can't "unsee" them.
You know the ones, like this of the man at the beach in only a... 
           ***  image removed due to extreme ickk factor  ***          
Or this pic of the woman walking down the street wearing... 
                ***  content destroyed because... blechh  ***                

So yes, this "real-or-not" sign has the right idea!

When shopping for an area rug, make sure it matches the rug your cat's wearing.

Went into the back of the refrigerator & look what I found.  Expiration date 9/1/04.
Should I try it anyway?

See, it even says, "Longer Shelf Life".... 

I'm game for this experiment.  I'll update this blog with results. 
(If I never post again, then you'll know it wasn't such a great idea....)

OK, so let's not even discuss the drapes right now,
look away from from the windows!
This beautiful room is getting a makeover from the Home Consignment Center
and I'm psyched!

Here's another shot of a super ugly chair that I can't wait to replace.
Heading to the Home Consignment Center and maybe find a couple of wing chairs?
A new rug is definitely in order!
Once again look away from the drapes! LOL

OK, I really need to hang that flag up already!
and the rocking chair...puh leeze!
Can't wait to head to the Home Consignment Center, meet with a designer,
and get this room some serious help!!
Suggestions welcome!!

RED DRESSES everywhere at the 66th Annual Emmy Awards last night!  Did you think red blended in with the red carpet too much?  Or did you like it?   
Personally, I LOVE red.  It's a power color, and I feel empowered wearing it.  
So I guess I'd better hurry before the tide turns and red has fled the runway!
