Saturday’s Stairs: Fun Things to Do Today.

March 27th, 2010

A good question to ask yourself on a beautiful Saturday: Are you a twitter addict? TremendousNews! will help you answer that question with The Top 10 Signs You’re A Twitter Addict. Yeah, it’s an older post, but very relevant these days.

Pregnancy & Baby at She Knows is giving you a chance to win a fun Organic Cherish Gift Set from Baby Bear Shop, but you have to enter before this weekend is over.

The Home and Garden Cafe has some very beautiful Spring Inspired Bouquets and Centerpieces to keep you busy.

Cool down with a homemade smoothie. Cookerati has a recipe for a Sunny Fruit Smoothie, perfect for spring.

In case you haven’t heard, today is Earth Hour! However, Jennifer at Growing a Green Family explains why she isn’t observing it. How about you? Will you turn everything off for an hour today at 8:30 pm? It could be fun…



You have until the end of the day today to enter to win the Kitty’s Crumble (Eco Cat Litter) giveaway at Light Green Stairs. (Follow the link to the contest post to enter.)
