Utah Clear the Air Challenge!


My kids LOVE Trax!  They also love taking walks so this challenge has been a blast for them. :)  Utah has started a program where we can all work together to help our air quality.  The Utah Clear the Air Challenge runs from August 1st to the 31st and it's an opportunity to set goals and see how we can improve.

So far we have continued to walk when we can and I've combined my errands so I'm not making multiple trips to various places.  Also I'm not sure how helpful it is but I mowed our lawn using a push mower (non-electric, non-gas).  It's completely powered by me..lol

I have really enjoyed being involved in this challenge because it's helping me to be aware of my little family's impact on our environment.  I also want to show my kids good habits.  I recommend signing up even if it's only to set goals.

Here's what you do:
-Register at ClearTheAirChallenge.org
-Fill out your info and set goals
-Track your progress

There is a tracking system with Travelwise and it helps us see how we can drive less and smarter.  When you utilize this program and meet your weekly trip goals, you will also be entered to win some great prizes!  Last week someone won a bike!!  You can also Like Clear the Air on Facebook to keep up with the program and win some more! :)

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
