Who is the new owner of an incredible smoothie maker??!! Um, this girl, right here! Last week, my husband had to make a quick run to his shop, based in Jefferson City, and proposed we eat at a local Mexican restaurant,since he'd won a 50.00 gift certificate in a golf tournament fundraiser. Does he know how to wine and dine a girl, or what? "Hey, baby, I have to run by the shop for material, wanna go get some free chimis"? He knows the way to my heart! Anyway, being the lightweight drinker, I am, or being that our waiter was incredibly impressed with my 3rd grade level Spanish...the tequila in my margaritas got the best of me. And what does Angie do, when fueled by liquor...uh, apparently she goes to Wal-mart(the new one, and how fun is that new circle yield thing they have going on?-no I wasn't driving just enjoying the ride)and buys a really fun blender. How I managed to get home without the husband noticing this fantastic purchase is beyond me...because it wasn't like I was trying to hide the fact I bought it.I mean it's not like I was....shoe shopping or anything. Where I leave them in the trunk until the coast is clear, and sneak them up to the closet with lightning speed, and the stealth of a ninja.
While sometimes he rolls his eyes at my purchases, he's never really complained about my need(compulsion) for kitchen gadgets. After a few nights of smoothies and vanilla milkshakes I think I can safely say, he is liking the blender very well.
