Recycling Greeting Cards

Throughout the year it is easy for greeting cards to pile up in a junk drawer. From birthday, holiday, to special occasion, greeting cards are endless. Instead of throwing them away, how about supporting a good cause and making a difference in a child's life. Send them to St. Jude's Ranch where children will use your old cards to make new ones. These children actually make new cards by removing the front and attaching a new back.
This is an activity you can even get your children involved with and they will know that they are making a difference in another child's life! A friend introduced me to the idea several years ago and I've been doing it every since. For more information visit:

Cards may be donated by sending them to:

St. Jude's Ranch for Children
100 St. Jude's Street
Boulder City, NV 89005-1618

On The Go?

I can understand that being pregnant and traveling may turn into a disaster when you need to use the bathroom. That's why I use when I am on the go! Using your Blackberry or iPhone, locating a bathroom is only a simple click away. All you need to know is the zip code of where you are and several options will pop up. It's also a great site to use while planning a road trip. You'll never have to wonder where the next rest stop is.
