Earth Hour Fail

I finished up Earth Hour & this time around it was a bust!
Yes I turned off the hardrive, monitor, printer, tv, stereo etc.

So I almost complied.

You see my son has been home for the last few "lights out" events. We've played cards or made up a story in the past, but this time around he's at his Dad's. Actually I lied. He's with his Dad at the Billy Talent Concert (it's official my 10 yr old is now cooler than me).

Now what?

If I would have been smart I could have brought a quart of Ice Cream home & most likely be occupied with that for the better part of the hour, but like they say hindsight is 20/20.

So instead I turned on my little florescent tube in my kitchen & did the dishes. I read on twitter today that florescent bulbs emit less carbon gases than candles, so that must be true right?

So there's my confession. Am I an Earth Hour Fail?

Mabel's Lables BlogHer Contest entry

My entry to the Mabel's Labels BlogHer Search

How I came to be….. ME…..finally!

All my old report cards say “If only Lisa would talk less, she’d do much better in class”
That’s me & that’s why I love the internet! My ability to gab on & on is appreciated here. It took a while to figure this out. I was always a planner. Someone’s birthday, charity event etc, I was always the one to step up to the plate & put it together. Unfortunately all of my creativity would go unappreciated. I’d do all the planning & people cancelled.

I scaled back. No more celebrations. This ended up hurting myself. It was my creative outlet & I became Hum Drum.

One day I placed an online ad wondering if anyone would want to attend a friendship group.

I received lots of responses, it took off & I met my TRUE best friend. Someone with the same values, ambition, & gusto that I have.

We made so many connections that we created our own event. We used Facebook & Blogs to make contacts & create a buzz in our town. The contacts became vendors which then became our friends!

Then I discovered Twitter & found out that we can keep expanding our friends to other areas outside our fair city.

So the internet has helped me come into my own.

By the way there’s a storm a brewin’ that might wipe out the internet. So I’ll just mention this to the Twitter Dream Team.

@KathyBuckworth will drop a line to RIM (they won‘t let their company be left in the dust), @Unmarketing will use the Force (being a JEDI of twitter) & @YummyMummyClub will get 1000’s of Moms together (because Moms can fix anything). Don’t worry pals it will all be fine.

Help Me Out-What Colour Polish?

So Bloggy Buddies...

I need your input.

Over the next couple weeks I have some BIG CHANGES happening!
No longer will I be the PIZZA GIRL (who am I kidding, I'll always be the Pizza Girl in spirit).

I'm slowly going to De-Pizzafy myself.

I'm going to do things that I could never do & am hoping for suggestions from YOU!

Being that I work with food I'm not allowed to wear Nail Polish. After next week that all changes.
No more pizza = beautiful nails!

My question of the week is WHAT COLOUR NAIL POLISH SHOULD I BUY?

You can let me know below, or tweet it to me @those2girls

It's also helpful if you can tell me where to buy it.
