A Love Letter

Dear Vita Mix:
At first I avoided you.  I thought you where too good for me.  I even had my eye on others.  But I always knew you where the best.  After so many frustrating relationships - I would always see you in the background.  You where always there for me and let me know I could trust you.  Trust you in making wonderful smoothies filled with fresh, healthy goodness that would make my body feel awesome and full of energy.  The energy you feel when you know you are with the right blender.  You do not burn up when I decide to throw beets or other random 'unblendable' veggies into the mix.  And you do not leave random chucks.  I trust you with all of my heart and soul and looking forward to a long, wonderful, and exciting relationship. 

Love:
Chloe

When my blender shits the bed, I will get a VitaMix. I know it's worth it. Espcecially becasue I make smooothies almost every day. And our smoothie recipe are so similar. Doesn't the chia seeds make it hard to drink it through the sports bottle spout. Sometimes I can't even get it through a straw because it clumps up.

Good luch this weekend!

Funny, Crazy, but funny post. Maybe we are all a bit crazy though. Ever read some of Joanna Z. blog posts (Fast at Fourty)? She writes with the view point of her dog. I've even been known to write in the view point of my legs and feet. I wish you both best of luck on your new found relationship. And good luck on your race! DS

The way I see it with the ever changing news it’s hard to keep up to date on current facts. Most of these commenter’s aren’t taking into effect the change of the global economy and how much of a different it has on news technologies / medical growth / economic / political issues. But anyways nice read, defiantly enjoyed your post. Found your blog on Google search engines btw... most people always wonder how people are finding them.

I have been holding out on the Vitamix....I need it, I want it. NOW

SSB said...

Love love love my vitamix. It stopped working about a month ago and I almost had a melt down. I finally got around to calling about the warranty and the guy on the phone told me to try it again. It was working fine. I'd been using it on variable speed all the time. And if you do, after about a minute at the same speed it it will overheat. It's designed to work best on high. This week I've been cranking it up on high and wow... I had no idea it could work that fast!

So now I'm back on beet smoothie kick. 1/2 can of whole beets (drained and frozen), 1 frozen banana, 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1 cup milk (might need a little more), 1/2 a lime (rind and all), 3 handfuls of spinach, protein powder. Soooo good.
