Zevia Review and Fun Facts!

For the most part, and I'm kind of ashamed to say it...we're soda drinkers, but in this day and age of "clean living" and "clean eating" SODA is a dirty word, right up there with MSG...mmm hmmm, I said it!

But before you get your pitchforks and torches, we drank diet soda *brakes screeching* Ok, ok, we deserve to get torched for that!

I didn't know how much harm artificial sweeteners did to our bodies, and I took it for granted that because it was a "diet" drink, it wasn't as bad as, say, a regular soda laded with mounds of sugar.  But boy, was I wrong, and I'm glad somebody set me straight. Actually, no one set me straight, I just happened upon a FANTASTIC book to rid my body of some unwanted pounds and they highly recommended Zevia. 

I knew nothing of Zevia, or where to purchase it.  So like any other person living in this century and decade, I googled it. I found it close-by (SAHHH-WEET) and I went about my way and purchased some.  That was almost 3 years ago and I am so happy that I found it!

Missing Blogger Alert....Where oh where could she be? - Personal Post

Of course, don't be silly...that's not me in the picture, after all..."I" am the missing blogger!

Where have I been? Well, what it all boils down to is lack of enthusiasm, I have over 10 products in my possession to review, and while I still have a strong passion for testing products and reviewing. I have or had a bad case of writers block, or less than stellar blogger posts enthusiasm or as I like to call it SBPE (I don't call it that at all, I'm just kidding *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*)

First and foremost I want to talk about the AWESOME opportunities blogging has brought into my life! The great and wonderful products I have been able to test out that for the most part I probably wouldn't.  I'm a creature of habit, and it wasn't always this way, I was spontaneous and fun. I've just realized that as I've aged, my habits have also become responsible adults. Therefore buying the latest and greatest gadgets or products is not on my high priority agenda....

Darn you adulthood!

I've decided to stop pressuring myself and stop criticizing and counting how many people read a blog post and who has a prettier blog or who has this or that or why didn't I get offered to try this and that.  And while all that may make me sound petty, that's not it at all.  I don't think blogging is a popularity contest and I'm a firm believer in quality over quantity. Which is why I felt that I had to take a step back from blogging to gather my thoughts and get those creative juices flowing.

It doesn't help that my house is in total chaos because I decided it would be a most excellent idea to gut it and do some "Fall Cleaning" the only thing that was falling was me, after I realized I should have just left well enough alone.

But in true "Me" nature, I always have to do things BIG....like the saying goes, go BIG or go home!

So this is my official announcement.  I'm back and better than ever.  I've been up to so much, besides cleaning like a maniac. I started new things, got into some new ventures and I've tested so many products it's going to make your tail spin (I never understood that saying, but trust me, if you had a tail, it would spin!).

Without further ado, I present to you "Word of Mouth...Lend Me Your Ear 2.0" I'm coming back wittier, and even more sarcastic than ever.  It'll be the most fun ever! I promise *shaking head no* Thank you to those who have stuck around and read my blog posts, for those who looked forward to new ones and to anyone else that I might have helped along the way.  Thank you, and I appreciate each and every one of you! 

Who knows, I might even do a blog overhaul (and if my husband reads this, he'll probably be thinking, how about you finish with your genius "Fall Cleaning" idea first, hahaha, ahhhh, he's such a kidder) But for now, I will be coming back. You can look forward to regular blog posts starting in November, but for now, let's sit back and enjoy the last couple of days of October.
