Green Girl Jaims

What's shriveled up in my fridge you ask? I think my brain is! Trying to figure out this blogging thing was getting the best of me. But now I got it and now it's my turn to blog the world.

Hello all...This is Jaims. I live in Boynton Beach, Florida very close to the ocean - 9 years - originally from Rockford, Illinois (you can take a girl out of the midwest but you can't take the midwest out of the girl.) I live here with my husband, Jeff, and my dog-son, Cecil Comisky Mershon. (yes, named after the Chicago White Sox ball field).

It's Sunday and rainy here today. Love it! It's rare to have it rain all day - most days it's too sunny to spend the day in sweats (you feel guilty to be inside and it's not the same) soooo, I'm in my sweat pants, drinking my fair trade coffee, and was reading the latest issue of Plenty Magazine (green reading). I also finished up reading the latest issue of Real Simple. They had a cool reference to a website that has eco-shopping in one stop online. - apparently the site has over 20,000 products!

Not bad for green awareness today. And that's the key to this blog when you read it. How 2 people are becoming more aware of taking care of our planet (air, soil, water, food sources, animals, etc.) and the day to day struggles as well. (Because a green life is not perfect - I just turned my air conditioning down because it's SO humid today! But offset this pleasure for no shower (saved water) - but hey?!?!? who needs a shower on a rainy day when sitting in my sweat pants! ;-)

Well catch "y'all" (my only southern attribute I've picked up in 9 years in southern florida) later - going to enjoy my air conditioning with a pot of chili and turn on some football. Da Bears!

Green Girl Aims

Hey everyone! Just thought I would give you a quick intro. about myself.

I'm a stay at home mom with 3 kids and one big kid, my husband. It's a crazy household we live in and I can not keep the darn house picked up! I have WAY to much going on and my brain is always thinking of the next thing to do. In some crazy way though I like it. Hum, who knew? I also think I have developed ADD since I became a mother. Again, I think it is because of all the things I have going on. Tasks, just don't seem to get accomplished like they use to.

Example, cleaning out the fridge. As I was grabbing the butter out of the fridge this morning, (I made pancakes for everyone today, no school.) I found a shriveled up pepper. I had to laugh and even took a picture of it. It was kinda cute. I guess organic peppers shrivel up just like the others! I got some of those Green Bags -Evert-Fresh Green Bags. I'll let you know how they work and if they keep my little peppers from shriveling up. I just have to remember to put my stuff in the bags. I usually just run home quick and throw everything into the fridge. Plus, I think you have to make sure everything is dry when you put it in the bag, no moisture at all.

I belong to a CSA and I'm hoping this will help me keep my goodies fresh longer. It's hard when you get all this good produce and it rots in your fridge because you can't use it fast enough. What a waste eh? Again, more planning that my brain is having a hard time keeping up with! Or maybe it's me. I can't keep up! Ha Ha

Well, hope you all are having a great day! I have to go and take care of my kiddies. A mothers job is never done.

Oh, speaking of kiddies. We are working on a new line of kids tees. They are way to cute! I can't wait to get them out. I hope you will like them. Sizes will be 2, 4 and 6. :) We will keep you posted on how it's going with them. Our creative brains are working. Good News!!

Hey Jaims! How is your day going? Any shrively things in your fridge??

over and out. Aims

Hey Everyone!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out our Green Girl T-Shirt Co. Blog.

We will be writing about "living the green life", or at least trying to, and the challenges we face in doing so.

Ya know, it's a tough world out there and maybe if we share our story, you won't feel so bad! We all have struggles with what food to buy, what light bulbs to buy, what clothes to wear, what to recycle and what to just pitch. It's crazy!

Don't sweat it though! We got your back. At least we are all trying to make a difference. Isn't that what matters most?

We hope you enjoy a laugh or two, life is too serious sometimes, and enjoy finding your own Green Groove!

Carry on,

Amy (Aims), Jamie (J'aims)

oh, about our names. We have been best friends since high school (please don't ask us how long ago that was) , and those (Aims and J'aims) were our nicknames. I guess we just thought they were cool. Maybe we thought we were too, who knows! I guess, they are kinda corny now, but oh well. We still like to use them. It must bring us back to our high school days! Ah, the days of yesteryear! Ha Ha. Don't worry, we're not that old! Anyway, we respond to either or and we may use them interchangeably. :) Have a super day!
