My Monday through Friday generally looks exactly the same each week. Sure CB and I will pop over to Klyde Warren Park and hit up the food trucks, or try out a new restaurant in Deep Ellum, but for the most part my routine is pretty, well, routine. 

Wake up, let the dogs out, drive in traffic to work, work from 8am-5pm, sit in traffic on the way home, let the dogs out, watch the Rangers game, cook dinner, go to bed. Rise, wash, repeat. 

While I'll admit, I actually do enjoy this new steady life of mine -- no driving 45 minutes to Arlington to see CB anymore! -- it would be nice to make the routine things I do all week a little more special and exciting. Over the past couple of weeks, I let the dogs out when I got home from work, slathered myself in bug spray and had CB join me on our newly decorated porch for a drink. A few nights I made us a cocktail, and a few of the nights I turned our normal ice waters into something a little more sparkling! 

All of these drinks have one main ingredient in common, Canada Dry® Sparkling Seltzer Water. I absolutely love Canada Dry's seltzer water and drink it over ice all the time. It's water, only better and more refreshing, and comes in flavors like Mandarin Orange, which I used in a couple of these recipes.



This one is obviously pretty simple, but just for consistency here's how I made it!





I picked up both the original and mandarin flavored Canada Dry® Sparkling Seltzer Water at Walmart. Here is a coupon to SAVE 50¢ on ONE (1) 12-pack cans of any flavor* Canada Dry® Sparkling Seltzer Water at Walmart. 


The Strangest Sports Across The Globe

Strange things happen in the sports world, every single day. For example, just yesterday I read an article about a Mets player who was traded smack dab in the middle of the baseball game, yet they kept him in the game?! Even worse, the guy apparently cried! There's no crying in baseball!

To take the strange things we see and hear in the sports world one step further, Hart Sport created this infographic that is guaranteed to make you scratch your head. Hart Sport compiled a list of the top 10 strangest sports known to mankind, and I have that list here for you today. 

Sepek Takraw, shown below, looks like a great activity for those looking to break every bone in their body. I think I'll sit the bench this round. 

Quidditch though? That's my jam! Who wants to start a team with me? I call seeker!
