I bought myself a present!

Hubs has been out of town all week, attending a class at the National Advocacy Center in South Carolina. I've had a week all to myself, it's been good, though I am ready for him to come home this evening.

When he's gone, there's no one to stop my impulsive spending though! Last night I went out and bought a Magic Bullet blender tool.

I've actually been hankering for one of these babies for awhile now. Ever since living with my former roommate, T, I've loved smoothies. We went through a serious smoothie phase, in fact. Nothing in the fridge and freezer but yogurt, juice and frozen fruit for awhile there. With the occasional pumpkin cake. . . 

I digress. I love smoothies, and I'd love to have a freshly blended smoothie for breakfast most days, healthy and delicious! But my blender is a pain to haul out, load up, blend, use a glass and eat it, all before leaving the house. 

My bullet (henceforth known as Bullet Bill) came with four handled mugs, which you use to blend the smoothies right in. Blend. and go!

It's only been 2 days, but I have to say, Bullet Bill gets two thumbs up from me! I had a smoothie for dinner last night, and one for breakfast this morning. Lunch will have a little more protein, but I imagine there are a lot of breakfast smoothies in my future! I like the convenience of only dirtying one dish, and being able to take the mug on the road with me on the way to work.

The website has it listed at 100+ but by going to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and doing some creative coupon using, I was able to get mine for 25-40 bucks for the 17 piece set.

Fully recommended!


  1. This is pretty cool. I like smoothies too, but don't make them often because it's a pain with the blender sometimes. This seems pretty neat.

  2. I want one! :) I would LOVE to have smoothies, or iced coffees each morning and this would make it so much easier. Now I just need to resist the urge to go shopping this weekend...

    How creative did you get with the coupons? I'd love to get one cheap too!

  3. Ok. Yum. I love this thing. Love it. It's only been 3 days, but I've used it every day.
