earth day (a day late) & fill in the blanks

I was so busy yesterday searching the very darkest corners of the internet trying to find the lowest price on a plane ticket that I neglected my blog. Sorry! So, even though the official earth day was yesterday, there's no rule saying I can't love it today!

Do you do anything "green" on a regular basis, or did you do anything special for Earth Day? I refuse to use disposable dishes (even if I'm at someone else's house), I only drive when it's absolutely necessary, and I recycle anything I can. I love our pretty planet, so I try to help out a little!

Now time for "fill in the blank friday." If you want to play along, you can link up on Lauren's blog!

1. One song that always takes me back to my youth is "paradise city" by guns n' roses. I swear I was their number one fan before I even started school!

2. My first concert ever was sorry, I can't remember the band's name!

3. If I could create my dream music festival I'd want these bands to be there: woods (my current favorite), bat for lashes, blondie, tv on the radio, menomena and you say party! we say die!

4. The best make-out/"boot knocking" song ever is uhh, yeah, i can't say that I've ever "knocked boots" to music!

5. The best concert I've ever been to was Bush.

6. A memorable musical moment for me was when my dad bought me my first cd (soundgarden) for my very first cd player!

7. The song on my iPod that's getting the most play these days is two of them. this one and this one.


  1. happy belated earth day!!!

    such pretty pictures.

    "paradise city" is classic!! and Bush would be amazing to see live cos Gavin Rossdale is GORGEOUS! ;) my favorite song by them is "Come Down."

    blondie would be awesome to see live! and ya... sans music on the make-outs but when i was in grade school it might have been Boys II Men ;)

    #6 is adorable! you are a daddy's girl :)

  2. The photo's are adorable! Love the tree! :)

  3. I adore the pictures you put up with this post.

    On a day to day basis, we use reusable bags for more than just groceries. We'll take one or two with us when we visit the farmer's market on the weekends. We use them to hold extra clothes for the kids should they get dirty on our little ventures out. We recycle everything we can. I have a shop on Etsy making cards and other paper items and will keep the smallest bit of scrap paper in hopes to use it again for something. I am a pedestrian and transit taker - so I will walk or take the bus with my kids wherever I can.

    Well, I think I went on a bit hmmm? Happy belated Earth Day! Thanks for sharing this post :)

  4. Bat for Lashes is one of my new loves. And those pictures are just breathtaking! *sigh* I need to travel more so I can really appreciate this beautiful world.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. WHAT????? i cannot believe you saw bush in concert. i had the most giant crush on gavin rossdale. so angsty...i loved him!

    hubby and i refuse to buy a second car {and will get rid of that one when we move to a bigger city} and we use recycled newspaper kitty litter and i reuse anything and everything humanly possible!

  7. The pictures are amazing! Guns n Roses are pretty cool :) I was a fan of Deep purple in kindergarden :)
