Easy Energy Drink Combos

This week has been very interesting in my family. You see, I was supposed to be on vacation from work (not blog work, but my day job) and while I still took the week off, I have been so busy! Howard had surgery last Wednesday and then spent 3 and a half days in the hospital. He came home on Saturday and hasn’t been released to work yet. So, I’ve been home with him, changing out his bandage, and making sure he has what he needs, while also working on several different blogging clients’ work and my campaign work, as well as writing blog posts for my own blog. While I did manage to take a nap yesterday, my week has been packed full of activities, one right after another.

Orange Juice Energy Drink

When I woke up today, I just knew that I was going to need a pick-me-up. I stayed up late last night working on the blog and other projects and the boys were up at 4:30 and couldn’t go back to sleep. I have work to be done and I needed to kickstart my day. On top of my busy week and work projects, I also haven’t been feeling well. I’ve had a sore throat and have been feeling a little run down. I picked up a bottle of orange juice on the way home from dropping off Benjamin at Summer Camp and knew exactly what I was going to do with it. I grabbed one of the 5-hour ENERGY® shots from the shipment I had received and made myself a little Orange Juice Energy Drink. I could have gone a little adventurous and mixed a different flavor in, but this was my first attempt at making a combination so I didn’t want to mess it up. Guess what? It was great! With a little bit of Vitamin C and some energy from the shot, I was able to breeze through several projects this morning and even have time to put together this post to share some more combinations with you!
