Over the past 24 hours, I’ve realized the following…

A) Realization #1: I no longer like soda.

A few days ago, I received samples of Zevia…


I’ve been wanting to try Zevia, an all natural soda sweetened with stevia, for a while now, but I’ve been avoiding it due to the cost. I know myself all too well, and the last thing I need is to develop an expensive drink habit after breaking up with Coke Zero two years ago. One Zevia every so often would be fine, but when it comes to soda, I don’t do every so often very well. Anyway, I was happy to review the soda for the blog as I do think it’s a healthy alternative to regular soda, but you know what? It didn’t really taste that great. Two years ago, I’m sure I would have guzzled the stuff down and enjoyed every last drop. It’s not that it tasted bad, it’s just that I’ve lost my taste for the sweetened bubbly brew. I’m sure if I kept drinking it, I would grow to love it again, but that’s not a habit I want back in my life. I also received a coupon for a free 6-pack of any flavor of Zevia that I won’t be using. I’ll gladly mail it to one of you. For a chance to win, simply leave a comment below telling me the words your family used for private parts. My parents kept it real, and to this day, I have no problem saying penis or vagina. OK, so sometimes I giggle when I hear the word penis. I won’t lie. 😉

B) Realization #2: I don’t enjoy watching TV. CD DVR’s The Office (So sad Michael is gone!) and The Big Bang Theory (LOVE!) so that we can watch them together every week, but that’s about all the television watching I do. After randomly flipping through channels yesterday afternoon trying to catch up on the latest news, I ended up completely frustrated. I think from now on, I’ll stick to getting my news online. Besides, I’d much rather be reading…

My current to-read stack.

C) Realization #3: If your dress is looking too much like a potato sack, simply wrap a scarf around your waist…
