Blue Living Pledge + Giveaway via Fins and Fluke (CLOSED)

I've been part of an amazing organization called Fins and Fluke since its inception in 2012. I've served as secretary of the board since and I am so thankful for so many things, but mostly my amazing team members and our supporters.

Right now we're encouraging people to take the Blue Living Pledge. What that means is that we are encouraging to make not only "green" choices, but "blue" as well.

  • Reduce your carbon footprint
  • Reduce the use of plastics
  • Strive to be fish-free
  • Become a locavore
  • Avoid chemical sunscreens
  • Avoid purchasing items that exploit marine life
  • Take your water sports off the grid
  • Educate yourself about oceans and marine life!
(explanations and further details on each step can be found here)

Oh yeah, I mentioned a giveaway...

Complete the steps below and you'll be entered to win a Samsung tablet!

Dream home: an ice castle

Spencer and I visited the Ice Castle in Lincoln, New Hampshire today.

I've been dying to explore some ice caves for years and if this is as close as I can get for right now...I'll take it. It was pretty impressive and surprisingly there was no fear looming in the back of my mind of being impaled by a giant icicle. 

  • a 10 year old kid actually tried to push Spencer out of their way
  • holy moly, it was bright! I wish I had thought to bring sunglasses.
  • there was a SLIDE made out of ice...which I didn't go on because I wasn't wearing snow pants and that would've been miserable after the initial 6 seconds of fun.
Lincoln is a little over an hour west of here, and we took the beautiful Kancamagus Highway there and back. Besides getting a bit carsick, it was a great little adventure!

Ran Away to Maine

If you have clicked the little blue Tumblr button on the right side of my page, you know that I also blog at Ran Away to Maine. It's a blog I started in August to basically share/dump the pictures I take all around Maine (and sometimes New Hampshire).

Diana's Bath, North Conway New Hampshire

I have a personal Tumblr account, but I never post any original content there. Having a Maine-oriented, all-original content Tumblr is kind of weird because
  • the people who follow me on this blog are SO different than the people who follow me on my personal blog. That's not a bad thing, it's just interesting to me. 
  • I have tons of followers who are fans of the band The Maine. I don't think they understand what my blog is about.
  • I have learned that when you type "please don't delete my caption" most people (usually the first reblogger) read that as "please DO delete my caption!!!!" and that bugs me more than it probably should.

Mad Men Finale

I finally finished watching Mad Men and I have so many questions and concerns.

*Spoilers ahead if you haven't finished watching, proceed with caution*

I loved this scene. So. Much. 

  • So Peggy and Ted are over? I was expecting them to get back together...I was counting on them to get back together.
  • I was also suspecting that maybe Peggy and Peter would suddenly be in love and run off together...nope. 
  • Stan is in love with Peggy? Peggy is in love with Stan?
  • Trudy suddenly takes Peter back? He was an inconsiderate husband from the start and just out of the blue she agrees to run off to Oklahoma with him?
  • Why is Glen Bishop such a creep? 
  • I truly hate that the show left off with Betty dying and no hope on the horizon. So that's it? She is gonna die soon and the kids are gonna go live with William? Does Don put up any more of a fight for custody? Or does he accept it because he knows he's kind of a crappy father?
  • WHAT HAPPENS TO DON? He shows some of the most humanity we've ever seen from him and that's it? Does he stay in California? What happens?!
  • Does Roger go through with marrying Marie? 
  • I was rooting for Roger and Joan during the whole show...and nuthin'. Well, they had a baby, so I guess that's something.
  • I was always rooting for Joan in general, and I like that the show ended with her starting her own business. 
  • What happened to Megan? Just kidding, I was never really that interested in her character.
