It has been 25 years since America’s favorite unstoppable icon, Energizer Bunny, drummed his way in to consumers’ hearts and homes. (Oh Bunny you are young, I was 15 when your cute pink fluffiness made your way across the TV screen.) Everyday people and pop culture enthusiasts alike have been enraptured with his tenacious spirit and boundless energy. People often compare themselves to the Energizer Bunny because of his never quit attitude (not me though, I get tuckered out long before the Bunny or his products do).

Now that it's November I can start thinking of Thanksgiving and Christmas! We've invested in a ton of LED lights for our home since we moved in, replacing nearly all the bulbs. Not only do they save on energy but they last a whole lot longer than halogens or florescents. We even love decorating with LED lights, for the same reasons. We bought ourselves a new Christmas tree (on Halloween no less!) pre-lit with LED bulbs and I love the way they don't get hot but still emit such a clean light.
I'm really finding it hard to believe that it's already the 13th of October. I've been really busy with the blog, our house, Amber's schooling and college entrance requirements; most days I'm lucky to be in bed before midnight only to wake up and start all over again. Which is why I'm looking forward to that extra hour of sleep on November 3rd. That's right it's 'fall back' time - daylight savings.
Coin lithium batteries can be found around most homes in everyday items like remote controls, keyless entry devices for your car, flameless candles and children’s books with sound. If ingested, these coin-sized lithium batteries can cause serious chemical burns in as little as two hours. Yet in a survey conducted by Energizer, 62 percent of parents reported being unaware of the risk associated with coin lithium batteries.
I love candles. I love the way they look when they're lit, the patterns they cast in the room when the night comes rolling in. Even more so I love scented ones that fill the room with smells of baked goodness, fresh crispness or floral beauty. But for all the enjoyment I get out of candles, there's a risk to burning them, especially if you have small children or pets in your home.
Happy almost Thanksgiving! Before we know it, the holidays will be upon us.

It’s hard to believe that in just a few weeks, we will be changing our clocks back from Daylight Saving Time. This year the time change is on November 4 and it also marks the 25th anniversary of the annual Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program. Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are once again working with local fire departments nationwide to raise awareness on the importance of working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in helping to keep families safe in their homes.

Pass it on: Use the Extra Hour to Remind Your Friends, Family and Neighbors to Change Their Smoke Alarm Batteries and Make a Positive Change in Your Community
Daylight-saving time ends Sunday, Nov. 7, and marks the 23rd anniversary of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program, created by Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), which reminds people to check and change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors during the fall time change. This message is simple, and the habit can be lifesaving. Forty percent of fatal fire injuries occur in homes without working smoke alarms, while 23 percent occur in homes in which at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate.*

I love traveling and I love beautiful photographs, and so it just makes sense that I love National Geographic's pictures. They are always vivid and make you feel like you are actually looking through a window to wherever the photographer was standing when they snapped the shutter at that moment.
Twelve photographers from across the country have just been named Category Finalists in the 2010 Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest with National Geographic. They are now one step
They keep going and going; and now you'll know when your rechargeable batteries are ready to use again!
Energizer knows that little (well and big!) children that use battery powered toys can get into mischief when the batteries are drained. But they want to know your story too! So take out those video cameras and have your child explain what kinds of "alternative play" (shaving cream all over the walls, giving the dog a pedicure, maybe taking all the packing peanuts out of the latest delivery box and decorate the living room?) they come up with when their electronic toys run out of juice.
