Detour Bars - Neopolitan flavor

Detour Bars sent me some of their new Neopolitan flavor to review.  Yall know I don't do chocolate, but now I've got my handy dandy chocolate lover fiance to help me out! ;)
Here's a little bit about Detour Bars from their website first: A triple play of delicious ice cream inspired flavors – a rich milk chocolate soft set layer sandwiched between creamy vanilla and sweet strawberry nougat – melt together in a one-of-a-kind taste experience. Rich in branch chain amino acidsRecover and rebuild powerful muscleComplete source of protein ************************************************ Now, for Jared's review: 10/10! I loved these bars!  They tasted just like Neapolitan ice cream. I took one of these before playing basketball for three hours. Loved the energy. 10/10!

Omega Infusion Water Review

Omega Infusion sent me their 4 flavors of their water to review on my blog. Here's some info from their website: One bottle of Omega Infusion water delivers 80mg of essential omega-3s (EPA/DHA), 200% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C and 80% of four B vitamins.  Omega Infusion’s healthy hydration is available in four deliciously refreshing flavors – Berry, Citrus, Fruit Punch and Orange.
*************************************************** My Review: 10/10! WOW! These were AWESOME. Not only did they taste EXCELLENT, I loved that they filled me up with Omega 3's, because I never eat fish! (it's just too fishy for me..haha) 
It also gave me vitamins as well. 
How can it get any better than that?!?!

What's Been Going on Lately...

Hi Friends!
It's already halfway through February! WAHOOOO!!!! We had a Winter Break from school this past weekend, so I was fortunate enough to spend time with Jared and his family. 
Jared cooked me dinner ALL BY HIMSELF. He made me wait upstairs and work on school planning stuff until he was ready. haha. He did a WONDERFUL job. I ate EVERY single bite.  He made seasoned chicken with veggies and potatoes. MMM! My man can COOK!  :)
He ended the healthy meal with a plate full of strawberries. In the shape of a heart. PRECIOUS! Love him! He's such a sweetheart! 
We had THE BEST time this weekend. I LOVE hanging out with his family. I feel like going to visit them is kinda what people feel like when they're on a diet. You're restricted for SO LONG that when you finally give in to that temptation, you CAN'T GET ENOUGH! Every time I visit, I HATE leaving. I miss them all so much already!  Thankfully, I'll be back to visit for SPRING BREAK!  :)
Here is a fun pictu…
