Blend your worries away...

Like most people these days, I am always a sucker for bargains. That's why I was so excited when I came across this new group on my facebook called Likeacoupon. They give you amazing coupon deals and bargains when you like their page. Simply put, I'm obsessed. A couple weeks ago, likeacoupon presented me with a coupon stacking opportunity that I just could not resist. Stacking the coupons allowed me to get 50% off at Macys! Now, I've had my eyes on this blender for years, but I couldn't seem to pull myself to spend such an exorbitant amount of money on a blender. It's the vita-mix 1710. This beast is normally priced at $699! eek!

However, it was on sell for $599, and then I had my 50% off coupons that brought it down to $300, which was better, but still a little high for my taste. Luckily, I remembered I had a gift card for $125 to macys. This put the grand total below $200, so I took the plunge.

My vita-mix arrived yesterday and I'm so eager to start making soups, sorbets and smoothies. LOVE IT!

**The main reason I wanted this blender is it is supposed to be the queen bee for making green smoothies, which I'm hoping to drink daily :)

Do any of you have one of these?

Breakfast in bed made easy

Say adios to those cumbersome trays that we all use for breakfast in bed. Of course, the notion of breakfast in bed is quite alluring, but as soon as you set that tray over your legs you are plagued with the stress-inducing task of not moving the lower half of your body. Nevertheless, you are set on this being an experience, so you try to relax and enjoy it. You embrace this relaxation full heartedly until the unavoidable moment occurs when you have a little scratch on your leg and you unconsciously reach towards your knee. Before you're able to remember the precarious nature of your lower torso, you see your coffee leap over the mug's rim. Alas, you can't really relax. I mean, come on...Is that really as good as it gets? Well, we can all thank Maria Cichy for a stellar design that will make having breakfast in bed as blissful as we imagine it to be. Check out this design -a table and nightstand in one. How are we all living without this?
