I love water bottles.  Who doesn’t?  But isn’t it the worst to buy a cool one that looks like it’s going to be awesome and it just isn’t?  And what to do when we run out of water while we’re out?  At the gym, I will drink a min of 2 bottles of water during and after my workout and I find myself filling up the bottle at the water fountain.  Ew. This also happens when I take my kids to the park, out on a hike or at the ball field.   #firstworldproblems  
So as you can easily see, I was very excited when AquaGear® sent me their filtered water bottle to try out!   Yippee!!!  The filter is on the straw.  The bottle is BPA free.  And it is super cute.  


  • It removes up to 99.99% of contaminants in tap water – including chlorine and industrial chemicals
  • The filter is 100% recyclable and replaceable 
  • It filters up to 75 gallons of water (approx 400 refills)
  • The bottle is very durable
Not only do they have these cool filtered bottles, they also have emergency food and supplies.  You must go check out their website.  
Whether I’m going camping or preparing for the zombie apocalypse, I’m gonna keep this brand in mind.

Vacation Part 1 and Fitmark Guest Post

I’m on vacation!!!!!!  My kids and I are staying at my parents house – for 3 weeks!  They live in the coolest little German town called Gruene, home of Gruene Hall – the oldest dance hall in Texas!  It’s really in New Braunfels, which is in between San Antonio and Austin.  If you are ever in the area, you need to get here.  There are 2 rivers to tube on – we will be doing that! – and a ginormous water park called Schlitterbahn.  Yes we will be going there too and yes I spelled it right, even though my computer doesn’t think so.  Anyway, spending the summers at this water park has turned us into water park snobs.  Seriously, it has 3 different campuses, 2 up hill water slides, a simulated surfing attraction,  tube slides, family raft rides, 3 lazy rivers… one with waves, and a LOT more.  New Braunfels also has the cutest park where the spring fed river (the Comal) starts and deer all over the place that will eat out of our hands.  I love it here.  I will share pictures over the next few weeks.  

I’m actually calling this a working vacation.  I get to meet my friends over at HYPERWEAR in Austin for the first time and I will also be taking a weekend trip to New York… by myself!!!!!  in a week for Tye4® Pilates Certification!  I’m pumped about that for sure.  I’ll be sharing my adventures here on the blog.

Oh yeah, if you get a second, cruise on over to FITMARK and read the lastest post I wrote for them…
