Friday favorites

by Emily Betzler June 20, 2014 2 Comments

Happy Friday! Here are a few of our favorite things from the last two weeks.

To Experience:

The miracle of caterpillar life:Butterflies You can get your own Butterfly kit on amazon.  They come in the mail as caterpillars so you can watch the caterpillar-butterfly life-cycle first hand. H loved it, and it was a great reminder of how amazing our world is!!

To Eat:BJ_PHish_Food

Should I be embarrassed that we have ice cream most nights in the summer? :/  It's easy to do when you live right across the bridge from the local ice cream shop!  When we aren't supporting the local guys, we are happily to putting our money behind Ben and Jerry's (and even more happily stuffing our faces with PhishFood!!!!) as they have a committed to sourcing all the ingredients from Fair Trade Certified Sources! They are a little bit more expensive than the other brands but if I am lucky enough to eat ice cream weekly, let alone nightly, I can certainly afford to pay more to support them for standing up for what I believe in; freedom, fair wages, social justice, environmental responsibility!

To listen to:

To Read :

Looking for a great summer read?  My book club just finished reading These is my Words: The Diary of Sarah Agnes Prine, 1881-1901 (P.S.)  Everyone loved it! Don't let the title fool you (it totally turned me off!) the book will draw you in and you will fall in love with the main character; a strong, smart, capable, kind women - so refreshing! Have a beautiful weekend.

Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands
Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands

by Emily Betzler July 14, 2019

 As you know, we are in full-on BABY mode over here (and loving every minute of it)!

It seems like the baby game has changed quite a bit since our last baby- there are so many new ethical, small shop, sustainable and giveback brands and products that we've begun to fall in love with! While we still turn to 2nd hand/hand-me-down items as our first resort for finding items for our kids - (it is most economical and sustainable), it has been encouraging and fun to see the myriad of new options! We've loved trying out and supporting some of these brands as we shop with an impact, and are excited to share our recommendations with you! 

Here are our favorite ethical, small shop, sustainable giveback baby brands - and the products we have been using and loving in our everyday life!
