We have to go out & create our own adventures. Fred & I decided to head to Lake San Marcos to enjoy the sunny skies & warm weather. It's often hard to pencil in the time to get outside the house. We're usually gawking at our computer screens, monitoring social media or working on some sort of marketing campaign.
This year we made the conscious effort to do more with our free time — although we do love our Netflix binges. We decided to take advantage of the beautiful Southern California afternoon & have a little picnic by the lake with our newly acquired Stanley Brand* gear.

My boyfriend was ultra psyched when I gave him the set of adventure goodies. He was ranting & raving about the quality. He was genuinely excited & that was a joy to witness. He said he could see everything coming in handy during Coachella or another camping excursion to keep hot stuff hot & cold stuff cold.
The Stanley Brand Classic Vacuum Growler is ideal for traveling because it's made with stainless steel rather than glass. We filled our growler with beer for the picnic, but if we were going on an excursion to see the sunrise, this would be perfect for coffee or tea.
We cheered to our adventures, to our future dreams with some La Croix & the Adventure Stainless Steel Shot Glass Set. We have hopes to get an apartment within the next couple months & do some international traveling next year. For now, the shimmering lake, magical mountains, & singing birds will have to do. It's not so bad here, not bad at all!
Southern California is pretty gorgeous & we're next to a whole slew of breweries. I really am a beer girl through & through, so both Fred & I wished the Stanley Brand Adventure Stacking Pint Glass came into our lives earlier. Any glass that will keep your drinks colder for longer is vital.
The pint glass totally would've come in handy at Coachella. We would've placed it in our ice chest to remain cool during the day & keep our beer cold once we poured it in. Until then, this will be added to our growing pint glass collection. At least this one is designed to preserve cold drinks. Yippee! I'm a slow drinker, so this is ridiculously thrilling for me!
Fred & I thoroughly savored our afternoon. As we were finishing up eating our sandwiches, we watched as a ferry pulled up to the dock. Two dads & their two sons cruised out & set up their fishing gear. It was a heartwarming moment seeing the fathers & sons enjoying their time together. If you're looking for the perfect present for the adventurer in your life, Stanley Brand is the way to go. Treat a loved one or treat yourself.
Where was your last adventure? :]
