Lovely title, huh? I’ll get to that in a bit! 😉
I have the day off from work today, which is fantastic. I even slept in until 9:30am, which felt great! My weekend has been really fun so far and I’m enjoying the beautiful, warm weather we’ve been having.
Friday night after work, Andy and I took the pups for a sweltering hot walk around the neighborhood. There was a slight breeze though, so it was not so bad (and it does not even begin to compare to how hot and humid it is in Georgia! Ohio feels amazing to me right now!). After our walk, I had a package waiting for me from the nice folks at POM Wonderful. They were nice enough to ask me if they could send me some samples of their POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate juice to try and I had no problem saying yes! 🙂
The juice arrived in perfect timing since Andy and I had just come back from a sweaty walk. I immediately opened the package and poured some juice into a cold glass with ice. The POM bottles are simply adorable, I love the unique shape!
I thought the juice tasted great! I am actually not a big juice drinker because I don’t like drinking things that taste to sweet and sugary. So I was suprised by the more tart taste of the 100% Pomegranate juice. It was not too sweet at all and had just the right balance for my taste. Andy enjoyed it as well (he’s more of a juice guy than I am). I also liked the fact that there are no added sugars. They do have quite a bit of calories though, 160 for 8oz. What I have been doing is adding half a bottle of POM (4 oz) to a half glass of water, which is tastes great to me since I don’t like things too sweet.
I would definitely consider buying this product and would recommend it to those who are looking for a juice that is not full of fake ingredients and not overwhelmingly sweet.

Saturday I had to work all day, but luckily I had a fun night to look forward too. My friend Megan and her husband Dan are having a baby (who is due in about a month!). Megan’s baby shower was last weekend and Dan’s was last night. He was having a “Diaper Party” which was at a bar. Basically it’s a fun party with food, drinks, and friends to celebrate the soon to be arrival of their new baby girl (well, really, it’s an excuse to have a party!). Each guest had to bring a package of diapers for Dan and Megan (hence the name “diaper party”) so they’d be stocked for a while when the baby arrives. I love the concept!
My friend Lindsay helped Dan throw the party and she decorated the party room so beautifully with fun baby inspired decor. She even had fun baby games to play, like baby bottle beer chug (which Andy played and lost!). She even had us wear name tags that were baby inspired. Mine was “Boppy” and Andy’s was “Tummy Time”. Some other ones were “Burp” and “Gaga”. I thought she did such a great job planning this!
It was a great night filled with friends, food, and drinks. I sampled a bit of everything (ok, I sampled more than once ;)) and had 2 miller lights since I was driving. Andy indulged in the drinking games while I caught up with my friends. We left around 11pm and called it a night!
Today I cleaned the house (dusted, swiffered, vaccummed, cleaned the bathrooms, etc) and just had some left over veggie pizza from Pizza Friday. Now I am going to run to the store to stock up on some food for the week then take the pups for a walk in the evening. I took the weekend off from the gym and have been enjoying my leisurly walks with Andy and the dogs for exercise and not getting caught up in exercise guilt!
I hope you all are having a great weekend!
