Reduce - Reuse - Recycle!

One of the greatest blessings of having sisters is the extra wardrobe options.

But what happens when you get black paint on the white sweater you "borrowed" from your sister while she was out of town?

You find your inner crafter and turn it into a travel pillow of course!

What stain?

Car Trouble?

I decided to start the year off responsibly and took my car in for a long overdue oil change on Saturday.

The nice people at Jiffy Lube changed the oil, washed the windows, and presented me with a list of things wrong with my car that should be fixed immediately, if not sooner.

At the top of the list was a new belt. The old one, they told me, had cracks in it and from the impression I got from the mechanic it could snap AT ANY MOMENT which would ruin my car and maybe even be a danger to my LIFE! But they could fix it for a mere $80.

Unfortunately, I hadn't planned on paying more than the $30 for the oil change. So, reckless as it was, I just drove home, cracked belt and all.

For 3 days I put myself at risk every time I got behind the wheel.

Eventually, Mike and my dad had time to replace the part that was such an endangerment.

They opened the hood and would you believe: the belt was in great condition! No crack. No split. No chance of it snapping and causing havoc without notice.

It was a 2010 miracle!
