Getting Your Best Friend Back #HillsPet

This post is sponsored by Hill’s. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Hill’s Prescription Diet Metabolic Food, but Our Whiskey Lullaby only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Hill's Pet Nutrition, Inc. is not responsible for the content of this article.


Have you ever had a pet that just couldn't seem to lose weight? When I was a little girl, our family had a cat named Jazzy. My mom had gotten him when I was very young and he quickly became a part of the family. Of course like most cats when they're young, Jazzy was very active and playful. But once he got to be an adult, he turned into one lazy cat. Whenever you wanted to find him, all you had to do was look in a windowsill.


As you can tell in the picture above, Jazzy was one fat cat. And as the years went by, he still got fatter and fatter. My mom tried everything including giving him smaller portions, but nothing seemed to help. It was probably because Jazzy liked to just lie around all day like most cats do. So after eating his food, he did nothing to work it off.

It wasn't until one day at a normal vet appointment did the veterinarian mention to my mom that Jazzy needed to be on a special diet because his weight was going up and up. Did you know that this is a growing problem among pets today? But now there's something to help turn an overweight pet into a lean pet again. Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution provides clinically proven nutrition that naturally activates metabolism to burn calories and regulate appetite. While eating Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution, an overweight animal’s metabolism changes to act more like that of a lean animal. And even after weight loss is achieved, the highly efficient energy metabolism profile is maintained.

If you want to see just how Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution works, then you need to watch this uplifting story about Bear, a dog that was so overweight that lived on a tarp in the living room because he couldn't walk anymore.

Exercising Made Easy with X2 Performance #teamX2

I am an X2 Performance Ambassador. All opinions are my own.


A few weeks ago I was able to start trying out X2 Performance which is a pre-workout supplement. It's supposed to focus on increasing your energy and endurance by working with your body to increase your natural energy production. I completely love this idea because I don't like taking anything that gets me jittery. I can't even drink coffee because I can't stop having heart palpitations after.

This past month I've been using X2 Performance before my workouts which consist of Bollywood style dancing. Although this doesn't sound like a strenuous workout, afterwards you can really feel it. It's honestly my favorite type of exercise because it's so fun. I love dancing to music and I really love learning about new cultures so it's a perfect fit for me.

So before my workouts, I've taken X2 Performance. A few of the things I really like are that it's portable and really easy to carry with you if you happen to workout outside the house. I also love that it's not something that you need to mix. It's already ready for you to drink from the tiny 2oz bottle. And that's another plus because anyone knows how painful it can be to workout after drinking an entire glass of water. Believe me, it's not something I would ever want to do. As for the taste, it's sour so if you loved Warheads growing up, you'll love this stuff.

So how did I do after trying it? Let's just say that my workout didn't make me want to fall down and die afterwards. I'm not completely in shape so after a workout, I am exhausted and the shower water is actually painful. But with X2, I still had energy and the pain was minimal.

If you want to check out X2 for yourself, you can order a trial pack using this link and pay only shipping and handling which is $5.95.

FabKids for Spring Outfits

I am a FabKids Blogger. All opinions are my own.


We're back with another styled outfit for Mary! For April, our FabKids style challenge was to put together an outfit for Mary with a matching pair of shoes. After browsing through the different selections, we finally chose the Tutti Sweet Outfit which included the Drop Waist Fruit Dress and the Fab Soft Legging in pink.


Along with the beautiful outfit that we picked, we were also able to pick out a pair of lovely shoes to match so I chose the Sparkle Flower Flat


Unfortunately this month I couldn't get any beautiful outside shots of Mary in her outfit like I usually do because she has torn some ligaments in her foot and it's been bandaged up for a while. She also can't walk well so I couldn't slip the shoes on for a quick shot.

Overall we were very impressed with this month's outfit plus Mary's new pair of shoes. Before she got hurt, she was wearing them everywhere! So everything is just perfect to us!

If you haven't signed up for FabKids, then you need to check them out. The outfits are adorable and you can mix and match all the pieces as much as you want!

Get a New Waistline with #FitTeaDetox


If you are anything like me, you probably want an easy way to lose weight without a lot of effort.
Growing up I was always very skinny but after having my daughter Mary, I started to gain weight. Now I maintain my weight but it's not a weight I want. And I want to feel good about myself without having to hide my problem areas in certain clothes.

But most of the time, I am just too busy to go take a run or even walk around outside. Going outside during the day means I have to stop everything I am doing for a few hours and that just doesn't happen. I am busy every single day and barely get enough sleep to stay awake as it is so making a few extra hours to workout is not in my books everyday.

But now there's a great new product that is all-natural, gives you energy, boosts your metabolism, aids in digestive health and boosts fat-loss naturally in problem areas. That product is Fit Tea!


FitTea is an all-natural detox tea.  It super charges and boosts your overall immune system and gives you more energy which I think everyone could use more of. Natural teas like FitTea have been used all over the world for thousands of years for weight loss and increased energy which helps anyone with a fitness program.

The ingredients in the loose tea of Fit Tea are Organic Green Tea, Oolong Wu Yi, Organic Rooibos, Ginger, Pomegranate, Guarana, Birch, Stevia, Corn and Honey Powder. These ingredients provide a fast-working and natural detox. These natural ingredients have other benefits besides detox, which includes weight loss, increased energy levels, suppressing the appetite, and natural antioxidants.

FitTea also offers a caffeine-free alternative. The ingredients are Holy basil (Tulsi) spearmint, rosehips, lemon myrtle and linden blossoms. So there's even a product for anyone!

My husband has been using Fit Tea daily for a few weeks and already I can see a difference in his stomach. That has always been his problem area and it's getting smaller so I can't wait to start Fit Tea myself!

If you're interested in Fit Tea, make sure to see what other people think about Fit Tea and their results.
