Goodbye Summer..Hello College

Well guys, usually I can’t relate to the “hating Mondays” as everyone else, because I have become pretty accustomed to lazy summer days, but today marks the beginning of my second year of college! It’s hard to believe—but college goes by 10 times faster than high school did! So now posts will have to take a back burner unfortunately, and I will be going back to 1 or 2 posts per week. I know y’all will understand! :-) Meanwhile, if your starting college or just continuing your 9-5 work days, keep in touch, and of course keep visiting the blog!

I figured I’d do a virtual toast to a great fall season ahead with two new drinks I have been enjoying! Cheers!

v8 Splash Smoothies in Tropical Colada was a new buy for me! I love v8 vegetable juice so I thought I would give this a try. It has all the great benefits of regular v8 with an amped up twist—it’s a thicker consistency, free of artificial sweeteners, and comes in Strawberry Banana also! I am not a huge fan of thick drinks, but this wasn’t overly thick and while I was drinking it, I felt like I should be on a beach with some tropical music in the background—in other words, I loved it! (To prove it, I have bought 3 since, and they are not small!) You can find out more about it at the link above. I also tried the Strawberry Banana, but after trying the Tropical flavor, I already had claimed a fav flav! But if you’re a Strawberry Banana fan, no doubt, try it!

Mountain Dew’s Diet Ultraviolet flavor has just recently appeared on store shelves. Although I am trying to veer away from soda in general, how could I pass up this awesome purple color?! Stylish soda, anyone? My thoughts: It was beyond good. I do not like regular flavored Mountain Dew, but this was super infused with bubbly berry goodness. I have a feeling all my fellow berry lovin’ bloggers would feel the same. :-) Sadly, the company is promoting it as a “limited time offer”, so in other words—DO THE DEW!(ASAP)

And I’m off to college round 2!

Good luck with your new school year. I have to say I kinda miss college! Such fun times and I loved the uncertainty of it all when your future is wide open. Enjoy it- you're right, it goes by super fast!

College does go fast! I can't believe I'm in my last year of grad school now. I know this year is just going to fly by!

I love the V8 strawberry-banana smoothie drink, but I've never had the tropical one. I just saw that purple mountain dew at target the other night and wondered about it. Glad to hear it's tasty. Good luck in school and enjoy your second year.

Good luck with college. It definitely does fly by MUCH faster than high school and sadly life after college flies by even faster. I can hardly believe it sometimes when I realize I've now been out of college longer than I was in it.
