Summertime Sipping with Tervis!

Recently I bought Dino Boy a new water bottle to replace his old bottle that he’s had for years. (Don’t ask how many times he actually washed it). I ended up getting him a Tervis water bottle and he loved it so much that he encouraged me to do a post about it!
If you haven’t heard about Tervis, they’re pretty much the greatest drink containers ever. The container is actually within another container which adds multiple benefits. It helps keep hot drinks hot, cold drinks cold, and since it’s insulated you don’t have to worry about condensation messing up your furniture. 
They’re also dishwasher safe, come with a lifetime warranty and are made in the good ol’ U.S. of A! The best thing though? The designs and infinite products they offer. Want a wine glass tervis? They got it. A John Deere cup, a sippy cup for the toddler, or an octopus? Yeah, they got it. On top of that they have all the professional and college sports teams. Here are some of my favorite designs!

This is the one I got for Dino Boy so he could show his support for his alma matter at work
1st Mate Anchor   - goblet

This is a necessity for summer boating!
Just Ducky My First Tervis™ Sippy Cup with Lid - My First Tervis™ sippy cup 
This one reminds me of Make Way for Ducklings!
Boston Red Sox B - 16oz tumbler
I have to keep one around to remind Dino Boy who the better team is!

My New Summer Beauty Treatment!

It’s finally time to shed all those winter layers and get that skin to shine! Whish Sugar Scrub has been a life saver this season. I love that they use organic ingredients that don’t irritate my sensitive skin while also leaving it smelling amazing and feeling super soft. It doesn’t leave a greasy residue but it still is incredibly moisturizing. I have to exfoliate frequently due to my dry skin and this scrub makes it so easy and refreshing! Try this once a week to fluff away dead skin and you will soon feel baby soft skin that is so rejuvenated!  Head over to Ulta and grab this stuff!! What products do you use to prep for the summer?

Sunday Saying- Presence Not Presents

5 fun date ideas for spring

1. Go for a hike
Regardless of where you live you can always find a beautiful area to discover. Grab those tennis shoes and reconnect while burning calories!

2. Do a beer tasting
It seems that no matter what our month looks like Dino Boy and I somehow always end up spending a day in wine country and while I know he loves wine, I also know he would much rather drink a cold beer. Why not learn more about his favorite drink?
3. Go kayaking
There is something so beautiful and peaceful about being out on the water. With the beautiful weather this is a great spring activity!
4. Go to a baseball game
This is also one of those activities we do a lot and I always love it. While I may not enjoy cheering on the Giants (Go Red Sox!) I do love spending an evening outside with Dino Boy sharing a mutual love for the game.
5. Go to a museum after dark
Discovering museums certainly isn’t just for kids! There are plenty of places now that offer “after dark passes” that allow you to come after 6 pm and enjoy the space with a cocktail and the company of other adults. There is nothing better than learning, drinking and sharing the fun with your partner!

What do you do as a date activity?
