  1. Target gift card? YAY! Hoping I win!

    So glad I met you through this fun blog hop! Living with the parents? Sounds like a very busy life, I can’t wait to read more about your experience!

  2. Stopping by to say hi a bit early!

    I don’t really have any new green tips but we try not to buy paper products other than toilet tissue to help cut down on waste. We would recycle but it is expensive where I live to do so. :(

    Happy blogging!

  3. Oh yea today is April Fool’s day… think I’ma stay in today :P

    But yay! Parteh!! :D

  4. Stopping by to say hi! I’d love to win the target gift card! We recycle like crazy to be “green”!

  5. Woohoo!! Target! I love Target! $10 is just enough to get me started. Fingers crossed. Head on over to visit me! I am giving away a $25 Disney Gift Card with 5 Minutes for Mom!

  6. I love Target… wish we had one close by! So glad to meet you and I am looking forward to reading more of your posts.

    joy & blessings,

  7. Happy UBP!!!
    I try to be green by cutting back on use of things or reusing things like whip cream bowls :)

  8. YAY! TWO more multigenerational families! I have really enjoyed reading some of the posts here, including the one with the question about how we feel about being called seniors – and getting “to know” both of you a little better. Very interesting and fun to read. And tell your folks HELLO from a fellow granny nanny who is “flirting with my senior status” (Meaning I love the senior discounts from the restaurants who think I’m old enough for them but am not so crazy about being called a senior – :) . Boomer is good tho! Thanks for stopping by SandwichINK. I’m looking forward to visiting back!

  9. so nice to meet you from the UBP!

  10. Here from the UBP! Hope you have a great one. I’d love to win your prize… just sayin… :D

  11. We’re not multigenerational here, but I help take care of my grandma who lives on the other side of town.

    I love to use canvas bags for my shopping. I remember them about 90% of the time!

  12. Stopped by from the UBP11! I hope you have a great week :) It seems you definitely have a full house, but what a blessing to share this time of life with your parents!

  13. Thanks for partying with me!

  14. Thanks for coming by to party with us :)

    Let’s see – we’re going greener this year by switching to cloth diapers (made the switch in January)!

  15. Thanks for visiting our site! We are so glad you liked it. Your blog seems very entertaining. We are sure there will be some great post to come! Have fun with the party!

  16. I love Target :) Thanks for stopping by my blog and visiting. We live on our reservation in Washington near my parents and grandfather. We have a large extended family within 2 miles of us which is nice. Many generations are present at each family dinner. :)

  17. Love hearing about multi-generational households – my Grandma lived with us for most of my teen years and it was a great experience.

    We’re trying to be “green” this year by planting our own organic veggie garden. We’re starting small but the hope is in a few years we’ll be able to grow all our own produce during the warm weather months!

  18. Nice to meet you! Let’s party. :)

  19. Hopping over from UBP11! We made the switch to cloth diapers this year too! Our daughter ended up potty training shortly after, but we’ll be ready next time!

  20. Well, I’m guessing by the word “we” that you blog with your wife. Very cool. Can’t wait to read more about your blog and living with in-laws. Should provide some good blog fodder. =)

    I’m #115 http://wovenbywords.blogspot.com/2011/03/2011-ultimate-blog-party.html

  21. Stopping by from the UBP! Blessings to you from NanaHood! Come visit me sometime!

  22. Okay, Im sold! That was a great comment, haha – thanks for stopping by and I can’t wait to read more!

  23. Multigenerational family? Does it count that my oldest two children are old enough to be the parents of my two youngest? :)

  24. Love you blog. I am trying to live green always. My township doesn’t recycle, so I drive my recyclables to the recycling facility

  25. Hello! I’m your UBP11 party guest. I’m Happy to Party with you! I am a new follower and would love for you to come follow back and like us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jeep-Almighty/200866719936819.

  26. Stopping by from UBP’11! We’ve made a lot of green changes over the years and are always looking for ways to improve. I clothed diapered my babies. We use cloth napkins, rags to clean; reusable shopping bags. We recycle, reuse and use up as much as possible.

  27. Hi from UBP11! It’s my first year! and I’m loving it! Nice blog! I followed!

  28. I stay green with my cleaning products, I’ve been guying shaklee for years now.
    My family is so mixed I don’t know where to start: italian, greek, black, caribe, asian, trinidadians and more

  29. Thanks for stopping by on Facebook. It’s great that you are making the multigenerational thing work for you…my sister is strongly considering that so I will have to forward your URL to her!

    For your question, I try whatever I can to be green. I think carefully about my choices and recycle, cook from scratch, grow a garden and buy locally, etc. One of my blogs Jinxy Knows Best is actually dedicated to healthy living with the Earth in mind.

    It’s nice to “meet” you both!

    Thrifty Jinxy

    • Send your sister on by. We don’t have it all figured out – but it’s a safe place to share and get tips – and to LAUGH about it all!
      Party on UBP11!

  30. So happy to have found your site and thank you for visiting mine. Your multi-generational blog is so great. I can’t wait to explore it some more. We try to be green in our house by composting and we just got worms! gross but cool!

  31. Hey! Thanks for visiting my blog via UBP. Cool giveaway on your blog…as for my tip – I try to use as many “green” cleaning items as I can. I find the Seventh Generation brand is awesome and cleans well.
    Great to meet you!

  32. Love the concept for this blog. I can definitely see how the “sandwich” generation needs fresh, funny voices like this.

    I’m not in a multigenerational home, but I do my best to be green. We compost, raise our own chickens, recycle, use no disposable bags, and work close to/from home to save on fuel. Doing our best!

  33. Stopping by UBP! Am loving your blog.

  34. I’m a new twitter follower of yours and I definitely like your blog.
    I go “green” by bringing my own tote bags when I shop anywhere, recycling anything possible and using my bicycle to get around when walking isn’t an option.

  35. Hi Kanesha!

    So nice to connect with you! Hope you enjoy the rest of UBP11.

  36. I grew up in a multigenerational family – we lived in the same house as my Mom’s parents and her sister. It was the best time of my childhood and allowed me a connection to my grandparents that I’d never had otherwise.

    I do have to say it probably wasn’t easy on my parents, though. Thinking our one or more of our parents living with us know is a bit intimidating.

  37. Thanks for stopping by Our Village is a Little Different today with UBP11. I’m following back.

    My father came to America as a child. Whenever new family members came over, they would be taken in, and his sister who was 12 years younger than he was lived with us for 7 years, too. His father was born in Tunisia and raised in Malta. Extended family always lived together. I guess because of that, we always open our homes to each other and love reunions. I even did my home renovation to make sure there was a bed/bath/ sitting room in our downstairs in case we need to take in one of our parents.

    Probably more info than you were looking for, but you caught me on a roll. :)

  38. Very cool blog! I’m following you on Facebook and Twitter to stay in the loop :)

    Our multigenerational family lives very close in proximity, but not in the same house. My kids spend tons of time with both my mom and my husband’s mom on a regular basis. I love that my kids have such a large network of family that they can count on, and who really love them!

  39. To be green we recycle and I try to remember to take my own bags to the grocery store!

  40. Thanks for your sweet comment. Nice to meet you! :)

  41. i don’t know if my mom & i can ever live under the same roof again. :) as for being green, i just opened an etsy shop this week selling journals made with recycled materials! http://www.paperdiva.etsy.com

    happy ubp11!

  42. Stopping by from the party!!
    Thanks for leaving a lovely comment on my blog! :)

  43. Hey,

    stopping by for the Ultimate Blog Party! I haven’t driven a car since I’ve moved to a city. I walk everywhere or take the bus! I also use reusable bags, recycle everything, and try to take really short showers. Finally, I unplug devices that I am not using and try to not turn any lights on until the late afternoon.


  44. Hi Kanesha! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a moment to comment during the UBP! I’ve been so busy I’m only now (after the fact!) blog hopping! Hope you (WE!) won something fabulous! HA! As far as multigenerational living – THIS is the place! Living in Hawaii with people from many different cultures (and the cost of living being out of this world) it’s a totally common thing here! Looking forward to reading more on your blog! Have a great weekend! :)
