Our family needs a 72 hour kit. Does anyone have some good ideas for food they put in their kit? I would appreciate some good ideas.

Here are a few interesting websites I received from a friend. I have some good friends that are helping me be more environmentally conscious. Another thing I have learned from my gardening research is become a coffee addict. Just kidding you don't have to drink it but you can pick up coffee grounds from Starbucks, crunch eggshells into them, and put them around your plants. It helps fertilize and keep pest away. And you also decrease the chances of chemicals from fertilizer getting into the water.

For someone like me that is very thrifty with different items I like this list of organic foods because then I can buy those things organic that contain chemicals and feel like I am helping out in some way.

I have finally decided to start mine and Brandon's blog. I feel kind of silly thinking anyone would want to read about what we are doing. But I know I have enjoyed viewing Beth, Katie, Ali, Amanda, Autumn and Amber's blogs. Maybe I have a good chance that someone would want to know what I am doing. Thanks to their blogs I have been able to see also other old school friends that I never get to see.
Brandon and I are living in Cary, NC which is a suburb of Raleigh (the capital of NC), with our two adorable girls. Brooklyn is almost three and Camden is 4 months. Brandon is working for IBM and I am at home with the two girls running a lot and enjoying my garden. We really love it here but I am not excited about the humidity and heat. We were living in Pittsburgh, PA previous to NC. Brandon recieved his masters at Carnegie Mellon University. I have learned to really embrace where we live. I don't know if we will ever live in AZ again. So I have learned to embrace that and enjoy my visits to AZ. Well I hope I can keep up with this blogging without getting addicted.
