Happy Earth Day AND National Jelly Bean Day

Today is Earth Day. To be honest, I don't really see the point of this. I know that sounds horrible, and that environmentalists probably can't wait to get their hands around my neck, but one day isn't going to do anything. Trust me, I'm all for making our earth a better place, but in the end, it's lifestyle changes that will make a difference, not a one day celebration. For the past few months, I've been wanting to buy cute reusable grocery bags for two reasons, one because it will help the planet with waste and such, and two because we have plastic grocery bags coming out of our ears at home. Luckily our local grocery store has a recycle center for these bags, so I try every so often to take a large bag of them and stick them in the bin when I go to do my weekly shopping. So my goal for the week is to buy 4 reusable grocery bags! I encourage everyone else who hasn't done this yet to do it as well. It's a simple lifestyle change that can make a difference.

On a fun note, its also National Jelly Bean Day. For those who know me, I LOVE jelly beans. When I was three, I got to pick wallpaper for my new room, and I chose jelly bean wallpaper. It was rows of beans with jelly beans in jars for the border. My favorite jelly bean at the moment is pear. Buttered popcorn comes in a close second, as well as margarita. Yum, I could go for some right now.
