So I love checking out other people’s blogs, and the day that I stumbled across http://www.theleangreenbean.com I was in love with it! Lindsay has amazing posts, all of the time, and she is so entertaining. I definitely recommend that you head over and follow her blog.
After I started reading The Lean Green Bean, I found out that she set up this really cool program called Foodie Penpals! It is so awesome! Basically once a month, Lindsay goes through and matches up the 1,000 people who have signed up to be in the program for the month. (You can decide every month whether or not you would like to be involved in that particular month!) Then you get in contact with whoever you are assigned, and send them a package of food in the mail!

Little Camille at 17 days old <3
Hey guys! I know I haven’t posted for a little while! Things have been so so busy lately. Between the new puppies, working, and assisting a professor at Dixie State College with some of his classes, it’s been a little crazy! However, I have still been able to devote a little time to being prepared! Here’s a quick puppy picture just so you can see how big they are getting!
Today we have a guest post from Francis Lawson. He has found that by preparing for a shopping trip before you reach the store, you can save time and energy. There are some great tips here, and I will definitely be trying to incorporate all of them into my future shopping trips!

I’ve finally managed to reduce the amount of times I need to visit the shops and now have more time to spend doing the things I want to do! Continue reading
One of the gorgeous boys at 3 days old
Hey everyone! It has been a really crazy week! My dog, Juno, decided to have her puppies a bit earlier than expected. They arrived on Tuesday afternoon (Moody Blues, anyone?) but I wasn’t expecting them until about Friday. At the time that Juno went into labor, I was in the middle of grooming a dog for a friend, at my house. She had been showing subtle signs of being close to delivery (temperature drop, starting to show signs of nesting), but she wasn’t displaying any obvious signs of being in labor. I was expecting some major panting, pacing, whining, etc. But nope. None of that happened at all. She was literally asleep one second, and then awake and trying to push out a puppy the next!

Today we have a guest post from Warren Howe! He goes over a few different types of fruits and veggies and how long they can last. He also gives tips on keeping your produce fresh!
The 3 Easiest and 3 Hardest Fruits and Vegetables to Store
By Warren Howe
We’ve all done it – gone to the grocery store or farmers market and bought all kinds of fresh delicious fruits and vegetables, only to have many of them go bad. Avoiding this problem comes down to knowing which fruits and vegetables last the longest and which are the most difficult to store. There are certain types of produce that are very durable while others have very short shelf lives and must be carefully stored. Armed with this knowledge, you can be better prepared for any food storage situation that may come your way.
So, I’m guessing you all heard about the zombie outbreak that happened last week? If not, immediately read up on it here, to avoid looking clueless.
Now, before I started writing for this blog, the writer wrote a post about a zombie outbreak, but I figure it’s high time that I write my own now, with the surge of zombie news we have been seeing. Continue reading
