A Guest Blogger

I had every intention of blogging today about something crafty (my newfound love for Stampin Up!'s watercolor crayons and how beautiful they look on a Martha Stewart stamp set I got at TJ Maxx for $1.99). I was also going to share with you a really embarrassing incident that happened to me on Sunday.

But I have a crop at the Y that I'm hosting tonight and need to get some things together...so I don't have much time. Instead I thought I would share part of an email that I received from my mom today. I'll get to the other stuff later this week.

If anyone was wondering where my (slightly warped) sense of humor comes from....the mystery will be solved after you read this....

(Oh and I didn't tell her I was publishing this so let's just keep this to ourselves....)


Hi Sis,

How was your weekend? What did you guys do? Was it hot..........????

Jim was running late to pick me up one day a couple weekends ago.........so I turned on the TV and started flipping through channels...........I ALWAYS stop at QVC and that was my first mistake...........so the moral to this story when I get to the end..........is .........this is ALL Jim's fault.

Montiel Williams was showing off this blender thing................and what appears one size on TV DOES NOT appear the same size when you get it..........he was blending crap like crazy.............smoothies, soup..............and it was blending in SECONDS.........my blender chugs along with some help from me shaking the darn thing and poking it and eventually the motor starts to smell hot.........so I decided this one from Montiel would be a good idea.........impulse buying it is called...................I spent $173.00............on something I could barely haul up the steps.............it is huge..............it will not even fit under my kitchen cupboard with the lid on............it is the next largest appliance in my tiny kitchen next to the stove and frig...........but man can it blend stuff (it has a motor a 747 would envy)........and since I have spent all of this $$$ I decided I needed to use it for more then just margaritas and the fruity smoothies.............oh..........by the way it came with a cookbook..........thing is most of the ingredients are NOT from western PA..................different seeds and crap I have never heard of and neither has Wal-Mart. But, I found some stuff.........and made a Spinach Kiwi Smoothie.............you should have seen the color of that!!!! Green Slim has nothing on this..........but it tasted pretty good..............I drank/ate it..............now I am determined to eat healthier and use the blender almost every day.......Jim, on the other hand is slightly afraid to come to dinner................as he may be drinking it through a straw.

Anyone having a pool party with frozen drinks should invite me and my new appliance...........I can make frozen drinks in record time.

Love you.
Mom

  1. Hahahahaha! Your mom might wanna look into the deceptively delicious cookbook by jerry seinfeld's wife. It uses veggies that you purée..... It'll give her another use for the blender.

    You can mention that Mark did the all smoothie diet right before we came to Florida!

  4. Oh my bug the apple fell soooo close to the tree. Which btw is another LO I've been working on lol.

    Thanks for sharing and btw there should have been a no eating while reading this warning, no drinking either... especially not smoothies because they are so sticky and can really gum up a keyboard. But I'm safe from the smoothies because my blender is very very small.
