I found some gorgeous benches for the home for this month’s Houzz ideabook. Benches are great for so many things. You can put them in bedrooms, guest rooms, kitchen, entry ways or even the back porch. So versatile and great design for the rooms.

We have joined the Vitamix club. We’ve been looking into blenders and such as ours broke last year. Everyone kept talking about the Vitamix and I just couldn’t understand why anyone would pay $400 or more for a blender. Then we went to Costco. End of story.
But really. We happened to show up at Costco on a week night when the Vitamix demonstration was going on. I had seem them there before and just ignored them. This time, I did the same. However, Nathan and the girls stood in front of that demonstration for about an hour. They tried everything the guy made with the Vitamix – ice cream, smoothies, dips and even soups. The sales guy was very charismatic and my girls were the perfect audience to help him sell. I thought we should have gotten part of his commission because everything the girls tasted they raved, out loud, about how yummy it was. The guy sold eight Vitamixes in that hour. Two to people who already owned one and got one to upgrade.
Since we’ve had ours, I’ve used it quite a bit. Several times a week. I have been making smoothies and even soup for the family. The girls have no idea I put spinach, carrots and other vegetables in their smoothies. Ha! Ha! Mom wins.
