Hump day shmump day

Happy Hump day folks!  Ah, the curse of the Wednesday.  Your last weekend was so long ago you can barely remember it and your next weekend is still days away.  How does anybody in this world live through a Wednesday?

I'm on survival mode around these parts.  Wednesdays require serious motivation to get me moving.  Especially late, as the last few weeks for me have been:

a.  busy
b.  stressful
c.  trying
d.  all of the above.

Correct answer is... d!  All of the above! 

That's why this week Greg and I decided to mix it up mid week.  We usually wait for Friday or Saturday night to really party it up but this week we made popcorn and Italian sodas and popped in a movie.  It was time to break in the new apartment!  I wanted to do Italian sodas for a couple of reasons- for one, I saw this fabulous Italian cream soda recipe that looked easy enough for even me to manage and secondly I've been dying to try Arrowhead's new line of sparkling water.

Yep, good old trusty Arrowhead has just released their line of sparkling water.  Sparkling bottled water? The greatest part is it's much more affordable than most sparkling water (only $.89 for a liter).  That makes Italian cream sodas which go for $4 or $5 at a restaurant just a buck or so!

Check out Jen's blog for the super easy scoop on how to do this.

The great news about making these Italian sodas is that I discovered how much I liked the plain sparkling water.   My body is on constant overheat (Greg says sleeping next to me is like sleeping next to a bag of coals.  What can I say, I'm a hot woman!) so I drink fluids all day long.  Especially because now that I'm back at the teaching gig I am on my feet and speaking for hours a day.  That throat gets dry!  I try to limit myself to one diet coke a day and plain old water gets seriously boring so that's why I'm converting to sparkling flavored water.

Bonnie for the win!

Now I can't wait to try the flavors- orange, lime, raspberry lime, black cherry and lemon.  Also, they have a very audience focused facebook page where people share how they get through their Wednesdays.  They stories are hilarious!  Rock on, Arrowhead!

  2. OMG that looks so good!

  3. looks like fun!! I hope your Wednesday is not too stressful!

  4. Your hair looks SUPER CUTE in these pictures!

  5. Ooooh I"m going to have to try this!!!!!!!

    I'm going to have to try these for sure. I'm so bad about drinking water because it's so boring, but I do much better when I have flavored water.

  7. I love flavored sparkling water. So good. And now I want an italian cream soda, I have never had one

  8. I've always hated Wednesdays! Those were my designated pajama days in high school. I'd get out of my pajamas and into new pajamas just so I was comfortable on the least comfortable day of the week.

    Your new place looks cute! Hope you enjoy it!

  9. Midweek movies are the best! The drinks look so tasty too!

  10. My husband is the same way! We have to turn the air conditioning up every night because he radiated so much heat. All I have to do is set my hand on his arm and I heat up. It is the weirdest.

  11. PS Your apartment looks dang nice!!
