    I saved the sustainable restaurants app in my phone notes so I can quick reference it on the go.  Looks like a great source to find newer restaurants around town that I haven't been to before either.  Do recommend.

    This was way more fun than I would have expected.  Loved being a part of the challenge and this team. I walked around to see some of the Spring show earlier today and these girls made my Spring Heart skip a beat...   Happy Spring everyone!  :)

    Scheduled a doctors appointment to get a physical and will request my biometrics blood work when I see him.  I used to get one annually and fell off the wagon.  Appreciate the reminder and incentive with the challenge.  Go team.

    Just signed up for backyard composting workshop hosted by the PA Resource Council!  I'm nerding out pumped I'm finally doing this!  Will be at the East End Food Coop next Wednesday night if you wanna join me.  We can buy in bulk while we're there too.  Yum.  Get in my belly!

    I always felt like a square peg trying to fit in a round hole throughout my construction career.  Constantly feeling like "I do not belong here".  I strived to implement sustainable ways wherever feasible, and typically dealt with groans and negative feedback along the way. I cannot express how great it is to work for an organization that not only promotes a sustainable lifestyle but shows me how I can do better.  I'm so grateful to work at Phipps and having the most amazing group of coworkers. *insert cart wheel here*   It could be cool if we had some kind of internal sub-group to keep this kind of thread and sustainable accountability going after this challenge is over.  Cheers , my fellow green beans!!  (a nick name I was given at a previous job :)

      I endorse somersaults in lieu of cartwheels for those of us who are vertically intimidated. Also: :) happiness is wonderful.

    I’ve maintained some sustainable habits since I was a kid. Love learning new ideas though & becoming more aware where I could use some improvements. Go Team Phipps!
