Blog Switch? and Product Review

Hey guys!

Guess who got an awesome package in the mail yesterday?

Looky looky!




As a former pop-aholic, I was beyond excited to find out about the all natural, artificial sweetener-free, zero calorie soda.

I jumped at the chance to give it a whirl…and wanted six of you to be able to try it out with me. Well, the Fed-Ex guy made me one happy camper yesterday afternoon. He actually came right as I was about to sit down and eat my lunch. Perfect timing!

I opted to try the Root Beer flavor first. What did I think?


This is way better than any regular/diet soda. I have completely lost my liking for that stuff…I can just taste the pure corn syrup and chemicals now. It is amazing what changing your eating habits will do to your taste buds.

Even though I no longer like pop, I still missed being able to drink something “fun” occasionally. Enter: Zevia.

This had just the right amount of sweetness and perfectly bubbly and delicious. I think I might have to hide the rest of my package…it’ll be gone before I know it!

Thank you so much Zevia!

(Zevia giveaway winners, be expecting your packages soon!)


Now, I have been doing some thinking about my blog site. I know  that over time, many of you have made the switch from Blogger to Wordpress. I have been looking into possibly making the switch myself. I was wondering if you lovely ladies could help me weigh out the pros and cons of switching over. What are the benefits that Wordpress has that Blogger doesn’t?

The plan for the rest of day includes going to work at the bank for a few hours, another date with Bob, and whipping up something delicious in the kitch for dinner, which includes this:



Love me some fall produce!

speaking of Bob, Biggest Loser is on tonight. I have totally gotten into it this season. Need some exercise motivation? Jillian will take care of that, no probs.

Have a great night!



  1. MMMM! I <3 Zevia!

    Btw, I have been wondering the same thing...I am thinking of switching to WP, but I just havent had sufficient time...

  2. my local health store said they should be getting the root beer flavor asap so you can pretty much imagine my excitement :D

    yay for butternut squash.

  3. Ohhh butternut! It's one of my favorites.. it makes the best fries!

    I just find wordpress is easier to work but who knows!

    and I can't wait for my zevias!

  4. mmm glad you liked the zevia!! can't wait to try it :)

    umm idk much about blogger, but i like wordpress (yea know thats not very helpful/informative)

  5. ps--i literally justtt tried the honey rice puffins and they are like pillows of amazing-ness, i would highhhly recommend them!

  6. i am so excited to try Zevia!
    Thanks again Kristi!!

  7. I switched to wordpress after about 3 weeks on blogger.. HOnestly it took awhile to get used to the whole setup but now I LOVE IT. I kinda feel my blog looks more professional (ehh bad word.. just nicer looking) bc I just had the standard blogger template.. it was a tad boring.
    PLUS wordpress gives you amazing stats on your blog.. daily, weekly graphs etc about who is visiting.. what they are clickin on etc!

  8. Thanks for the great commment and the blogroll add. You are a swwwwweeetheart :)

    Have a lovely nite, enjoy that Zevia. I hosted a Zevia contest and gave away like 100 cans about 6 weeks ago. Too bad I didnt know ya then :)

  9. Hey chica!

    Wordpress has 50 million more features and benefits that blogger. It's so easy to upload pictures, view high tech stats, add cool templates, and more. I highly recommend making the move! And it's a lot easier to comment on other Wordpress sites.

    Can't wait to try the Zevia oh my gosh!! I've never had it before and now you made me so excited about the Root Beer kind-- that's my favorite kind of soda pop!

  10. RUN, not walk, to Wordpress. I'm sorry Blogspot is so annoying, esp for commenters.
    It sometimes takes like 5-8 clicks to get the comment in, and the word verification is annoying too, and with Wordpress, you get to "spy" on your readers with reader stats, lol! MAke the switch, come over to our side! >.<

    LOVE Zevia! I should be doing a review on them soon, too!

  11. I LOVE wordpress, more features!!
    That soda looks amazinggg, and so does that butternut. Yum!

    Enjoy your week girl!
    love ya!

  12. Hey! I have been only using wordpress and honestly, its soo easy to use I would do the switch for sure :)
