I love Diet Coke


Anyone that knows me, knows my slight obsession with Diet Coke. I have at least a sip once a day. I could cut back but then what's the fun in that? 

And according to a recent study, it seems that I am not the only one that loves their Diet Coke. The top 10 of the nation's most sold sodas was recently released and Diet Coke has finally come out over Pepsi. It seems Coke wins, Diet or not.

Sitting at number 1 is Coke, same as 10 years ago. Then right behind it is Diet Coke, beating out Pepsi. 

The trend in the past 10 years seems to be heading more towards Diet sodas and that could be because of the American peoples trend towards diets in general. People are counting calories more and more and especially watching sugar since the rise of Type II diabetes.

Not to mention that Diet Coke has introduced many favors. These include lemon, vanilla, cherry and lime.

No 5 and 6 have also done a flip-flop in the past decade. Dr. Pepper has come out over Sprite in 2010. This could show the declining trend for caffeine free soda. So amny people run around until they can't run anymore today. Multi-tasking their way through the day. Many people, myself included, need that extra caffeine to be able to conitnue through the day. So why drink caffeine free soda when you can have one that could give you a pick me up?

That's why Caffeine Free Diet Coke fell out of the top ten and was replaced by Diet Dr. Pepper. America runs on caffeine.

See here for the full results. I am going to go enjoy my Diet Coke.

Wear No Pants Today and Eat that Cake


So it seems May has a lot of fun,official and unofficial, themed days.

May 5- CONCO DE MAYO! ARRIBA! ARRIBA!
This was yesterday and I hope everyone got to sip a little bit of a margarita to celebrate this holiday.

Now today. May 6.
 National Nurses Day- This day kicks of National Nurses week until it culminates on Flornece Nightingales birthday. So today is a day to honor all the nurses in your life and arpund the world that work hard everyday. 

BEVERAGE DAY
Take a sip of your favorite drink today. Whether it be iced tea, milk or some Diet Coke. You know my Diet Coke is already ready fpr me to enjoy.

NO DIET DAY

Put away those calorite counters. Go out and buy that chocolate cake. No diets today. Let's all be free! After all, if it's no diet day we have to oblidge.

And now for my favorite....

NO PANTS DAY!

That's right. Today is the day where you are supposed to lose the pants and wear your thickest, most repsectable boxers or undergarments. It is meant for humor and freedom and I don't think it's a coincidence it's so close to Cinco de Mayo. Now this is one worth participating in. Think of the look you'll get when you show up to your meeting in boxers.


Today is a super fun day. Everyone might ignore these kinds of undeclared holidays but I think it helps make life fun. Turns it up a bit. So today I know I will be calling my aunt to thank her for being an amazing nurse, while I sip my Diet Coke, eating some cookies all the while not wearing pants.

Enjoy your May 6!

5/1/11


"Let us remember that we can do these things not just because of wealth or power but because of who we are.
One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for All."

Thank you to all the military men and women who continue the fight. God Bless America.

May Day!


No, we aren't crashing and in need of immediate assistance. Today is just the first of May!
Which is super exciting because well, warm weather is coming :) Then comes summer...(Trying not conjure the image of bathing suit season in my head..)

Anyways, it is the first of May. Less than a month until Memorial Day, the unoffical start to the summer and it could not have been a more beautiful day. Hope everyone had a chance to enjoy the gorgeous sunshine today!

And since I did remind myslef how close bathing suit really is I will now be going to run a few miles...
