GreenDay

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Hope you are feeling the luck of the Irish today. I am feeling a bit like a chauffeur today myself. The girls are on Spring Break. We have been on the go all day and really just stopped home for an hour or so for nourishment and to add layers for lacrosse practice. I am planning my route to the field via Starbucks.
Friday night I hosted the Eco-Friendly Bunko. It was a success. For dinner I served Potato Leek Soup, delicious and EASY! Well, let me rephrase that...preparing the soup was easy...heating up to be served was a different story! Really, the following just proves I should not be left unsupervised in the kitchen. I was warming up the soup, so I though, I had it on the wrong burner. How I was not tipped of by the empty BIG BRIGHT RED burner on the stove top, I don't know. Of course, I realized my error after the soup was served and everyone was eating the tepid concoction...classic Heather!
WE had lots of fun anyway! And the "Green" prises were a hit! All products that are organic or promote greener living all wrapped up in these clever reusable bags from here!











MBM is traveling to Boston today. Needham, Mass. to be exact...do you think I would like it there? We are all over the place...should we move or stay put!
Oh, and I finally spoke with my perspective employer...but, I am still waiting to set up a meeting! Patience, Heather, patience!

If you moved to Needham you would live exactly five minutes from my town! I think you would LOVE it! It's about 15 minutes, a quick ride, down the Mass Turnpike right into downtown Boston. Feel free to email me if you have any questions if MBM's situation shapes up in that direction!

Hi-glad your party was a success! The prizes looked great:) I think you would love Needham. I've been there a few times and from what I remember it's great...and so close to Boston. I grew up on the South Shore of Boston (Duxbury, MA) so I don't know too much about the north shore but have plenty of contacts in that area if you ever need any info. Good luck to both of you on the job situation:)

Great gifts - serious great gifts! And I love soups - potato and leek especially!

Such cute prizes, Heather!

I was just going to suggest you talk to Ladybug. :) I think you would certainly like Needham. I suspect that you would also very much like Newton and Wellesley, both of which are very close to Needham.

Those prizes must have been a big hit! Good luck with whatever you decide regarding the move.

I think you would like Needham and the surrounding area! I remember playing Needham in lacrosse in high school...I believe we beat them most of the time!

Needham is a beautiful town! Very close to everthing and great schools. Where is the water bottle from? Great ideas!
