Green Grocery Bag Challenge

After hearing about the possible link of lead in reusable grocery bags made in China, my heart just sank.  After finally getting so many people on board to shop with cloth bags it seemed to be a slap in the face for all the efforts.  However....there is a better way!  I was privileged to learn about the Green Bag Lady from a friend's blog about a year ago.  And now, Sew Mama Sew has put a challenge on the table...the sewing table that is.  Green Grocery Bag Challenge is a way for each of us to really use our resources and abilities to help out one gift at a time this Christmas season and beyond.  Check out all the highlighted links and learn more about this great idea.

ps.  I was fortunate enough to win a Green Bag Lady bag (#8321) for myself and one to give away to a friend last year. 

13,445 Green Bag Lady Bags Given Away!

Green Bag Lady bags are being used in 2415 cities in every U.S. state
plus 349 cities in 206 territories/provinces/countries world wide

It really has made an impact on me and my family to reuse bags and take along our own whenever possible.

DQ Night was So FUN!

 This was after we had already eaten our fill of yummy Dairy Queen Blizzards!
 The place was packed with dear friends and others that had no idea why it was
so crazy for a Thursday night.
Good friends and yummy treats...what more can a girl ask for?
 It took a while to get these guys to stand still for a picture, but how cute are they?
 All pink and smiles and filled to the brim with ice cream.
 Brothers bonding over Blizzards, ahhhh.
 Do the WRIGHT thing.  Thanks DQ and Leanne!
On our way home, one more photo to remember this amazing night!

Friends are Awesome!

Tonight we are headed to Dairy Queen for a special event set up by our wonderful neighbors.  Our local DQ is generously donated some of their profits to help with our medical bills for John.  I want to take pictures to share since I forgot to do that for the Chick Fil A fundraiser last month!  That was an incredible event too.  Some other neighbors spearheaded that crazy day and it was a blast!  Thank you Larkridge Chick Fil A!  You are an amazing resource for our community.
