This summer it seems we’ve been on the go from trip to camp to another trip to another camp. We’re barely home to eat a meal these days! My husband, Paul, has gone in one direction, the kids in another, and I’m somewhere at working in my home office accompanied by my body guard, er, dog, Nellie. So it was lovely when Paul and I could take a break from the hustle and bustle last week, and go out o dinner by ourselves with no kids around.
We had a really fun dinner at Viva!, which specializes in Argentinian style cuisine. We had empanadas, which are like small, fancy Hot Pockets. We then shared a sausage platter and had some mighty fine mini cupcakes from Gaby’s Atomic Cupcakes. Then we walked around downtown Athens, which is just lovely this time of year since all the UGA students are gone. We stopped at a couple of bars for sparkly drinks, too. Not only did it give us a chance to reconnect and put a bit of sparkle back in our relationship. But it also sparked so cooking and drink ideas for my blog.
Enter to win with #SparkleWithDASANI!
Speaking of sparkly drinks, I’ll be the first one to admit that I really like drinking diet sodas. However, I know I have to limit myself and try to have no more than two a day. While I’ve tried to switch to plain water or herbal iced teas to keep hydrated, it just isn’t the same without that fizz and sparkle. That’s why I like sparkling water like DASANI Sparkling. I recently tried their lemon, lime, apple and berry sparkling water and really enjoy having an alternative sparkly drink instead of diet soda.
To promote their sparkling water, DASANI is running a Sparkling Getaway for you and three friends to Ft. Lauderdale! All you need to do is show them what makes YOU sparkle by using #sparklewithdasani on Instagram or Twitter.
