Hey guys! Fall is definitely here, and with the new school year, I tend to think of fall as the time to make changes. I’m not much of a New-Year-Resolution girl, but every year I assess my goals, and when we settle into our cool-weather routine, I find that’s one of the best times to implement them. So I’m really excited to share with you guys that I’ve partnered with Absopure in my personal goal to drink more water. Absopure has set me up with home delivery so that I show you how the program works and – hopefully – inspire you to drink more water as well!
So there’s my big bad cooler, tucked nicely into a small corner. For a while now, we’ve been going through a lot of plastic bottles. The cooler is a great way to reduce waste AND space in the refrigerator, too. My son is only 2 so we had an interesting first day getting him NOT to touch it (it only took one day for him to stop testing me, haha), but my daughter is 4. With her “special cup”, she’s actually pouring water for herself and drinking a couple of cups a day voluntarily. You would think we had been trying to poison her with tap water (not literally, of course – we have very good city water where I live) but the fact that she can be independent and enjoy it on her own terms is helping her to develop a love for water. I could never get her to drink a glass of water before! I think that’s really a critical love, because, for many of us, drinking more water is a chore, isn’t it? So I am so excited to be able to help her start to choose water early on.
See this? This is my daughter, filling up our bottle at ArtPrize last week. Absopure partnered with Spectrum Health to offer free water refills in the Water Share Program. If you stopped at the Hub, the Lounge, the Clubhouse, or the Hospitality Center, you could refill your bottle totally free. We are pretty serious in Michigan about recycling – every carbonated beverage has a bottle deposit on it to encourage recycling. Now, this is not the case (yet, anyway) with plastic water bottles, but none of us like the idea of throwing a plastic bottle in the trash. Being able to refill our bottles is huge here, and I’m so excited that MY brand – Absopure – stepped up and offered this service to ArtPrize guests.
You may have seen my video that I posted on Facebook about ArtPrize – I actually entered a piece for my second year this year! I didn’t win (and I didn’t expect to) but it’s so much fun to just be a part of such a huge event with artists from all callings.
It was really exciting to partner with a brand who loves the ArtPrize event like I do, and who offered their services for everyone here at the event to enjoy. All you had to do was grab a sticker and refill at any of the water share locations around the city.

Happening right now: catch me at ArtPrize in downtown Grand Rapids! I'm at the Club House sharing how to stay hydrated with Absopure while you're seeing art during the event!

So I hope this all shows you how excited I am to be partnering with Absopure going forward. I’ll be sharing some water bottle crafts, ideas to recycle, and more in the coming months. Home (and office!) delivery service is available in Michigan, Greater St. Louis, Central Illinois and the Greater Toledo Area. Not only do they have cooler service like what I shared above, but you can have bottled water delivered (to toss one into your kids’ lunchboxes!) and they also have Keurig and K-Cup service!
I already had a Keurig, so it was SO convenient just to add my favorite K-Cup flavors to my delivery order. (If you don’t currently have a Keuring coffee maker, it’s another lease service they can provide!) If you’re in a local Absopure delivery area, you can get a FREE TRIAL of Absopure’s home and office refreshment services by calling (800) 499-9938, or signing up online for a free 30-day trial. Be sure to tell them you read about it here at Happy Hour Projects!
I’ve had service for 2 weeks now, and I’m seriously thrilled with how much easier it is to drink more water by making it convenient, and that it gets delivered right to my door. Even if you’re not in an Absopure delivery area, Absopure water is sold in every state at most local stores, so be on the lookout for my brand!
Disclosure: I was not paid for this post, but I was compensated with free home delivery from Absopure as part of an ongoing relationship in the Absopure Blogger Program.
