His & Her Valentine’s Cocktails with Zevia #GoodSodaLove

This is a partnered post. All opinions are mine alone.

I was first introduced to Zevia Soda last November during the Wow Summit. I was blown away by the taste!! Since then, our family has gotten hooked on this smarter soda brand, which was born out of hubby’s hometown of Seattle. Zevia uses guilt-free sweeteners like Monk Fruit & Stevia in place of artificial sweeteners and sugar. Zero calories, natural, and great tasting = a trifecta of goodness!

During one of the Wow Summit workshops, the Zevia rep shared tons of knowledge, not only about their zero calorie soda, but fun entertaining recipes too! With 15 soda flavors and counting, there’s endless possibilities you can create. Today I’m sharing two cocktail favorites: Zevia’s Sweet N’ Sassy & our version of a Spiked Rootbeer Float. These make perfect Valentine’s cocktails too!

Orlando has become a windy city! No really, it’s true. We’ve had some abnormally windy and chilly weather here recently. Then throw overnight rain bouts into the mix and our Florida “sunshine” reputation is a distant memory. I have faith it will return, hopefully sooner than later! So, as you can imagine we were not prepared for this weather change and the boys were in need of some winter clothing. 

One Step Ahead recently launched their Cozy Cub Collection, which features comfortable and fun outerwear for kids. The Difference Is In The Details, is how One Step Ahead describes Cozy Cub. The new collection showcases unique features such as grow-with-me sleeves and pants, hidden mitten-clips, pony-tail hats, stay-put pant stirrups and adjustable shoulder straps, just to name a few!

I’m Going to be Interviewing THE Kevin Costner + More Fun News! #McFarlandUSAEvent

McFarland Event

It’s happening….again! I’m headed back to LA for a whirlwind media trip to cover a very special Disney & ABC event! If you’ve been a longtime reader then you may remember my first trip to LA in 2013 to interview Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel, and cover the Hollywood premiere of Disney’s Planes. Considering The Little Mermaid is my all-time favorite Disney princess movie – you can bet I was on cloud nine then! My second trip to LA was last year to cover the premiere of Million Dollar Arm, including interviewing Jon Hamm! That was such a fun experience too!

So as you can imagine, I am over the moon excited to be going for a third time, along with 24 other fabulous bloggers! I will be covering Disney’s lastest film, McFarland, USA starring Kevin Costner, which releases in theaters 2/20. Not only will I have the opportunity to interview Kevin Costner, but the filmmakers, real life inspirations behind the film, and various other cast members! Does that sound awesome, or what?!
