Something wonderful happened!
Have you guessed what it is yet???
Travis and I were out shopping at Short Pump Mall last Saturday and after lunch at Firebirds (love their crabcake salad!) we decided to walk into Williams Sonoma. I originally went inside to look at their pepper grinders because mine broke last week and we walked out with about everything but a pepper grinder!
We got a Vitamix 7500…which was an upgrade from the one I had been hinting about. He said if I was going to spend that much money why not spend a little more and get the best one? Love his logic sometimes! We also got some glass jars for storage and for smoothie drinking (they were on sale 20% off). I got a meat thermometer. I can’t believe that I have NEVER owned one! Lastly, but not least, we got an espresso machine. I’m not as into coffee recently and my boyfriend loves lattes and espresso so we have decided to put the coffee maker in the cabinet for use during dinners and family get-together’s and use the espresso machine on a daily basis.
I’ve been dreaming for months of all the possible smoothie combos with kale, apples, raspberries, spinach, oranges, ginger, fresh herbs, lemons, pineapple and of course bananas…now I can make all the concoctions happen!!
Thank you Travis!!!
