Blender bottle Review

The Blender Bottle is amazing! It really beats the usual wire whisk! I received the the Blue 28 oz Blender Bottle and the the Polka Dotted Sling for my review. I like to cook, but more so I wanted the Blender Bottle to review for my Protein Shakes.

 I have said in other reviews that I love to run and work out. Well I am now training for the Tough Mudder (Look it up, I know I am crazy!!) so I like to have a protein Shake in the morning and after my work out. The Blender bottle makes it so easy! My husband and I make shakes before bed or in the morning and than I add the shake to the bottle, and add my protein powder and shake. The Wire ball that is in the bottle evenly mixes up all the ingredients and I am set!

The sling is super awesome too! I put the bottle in the sling, and it stays cold for much longer. I dont know about you, but if you have ever had a protein shake, they are GROSS warm! One thing I found too, if my husband uses the bottle and takes it with him, I just the sling inside out so for him it is black (not sure he would want to sport the polka dots). So it works for us both.

I also really enjoyed the 101 Blender Bottle recipe book too. There were so many quick and simple recipes! I really liked the Key Lime Pie recipe..yummy!

Some facts about the bottle are:
  • Dishwasher Safe
  • Large drink/pour spout
  • BPA free
  • Fits in most car drink holders
  • Easy Frip design
  • Easy to clean
Um, SUPER easy to clean! I do not receommend letting your protein shake sit for a say in the Blender Bottle because it is gross (husband is not good at rising things out), but I just rinsed it out with water and NOTHING stuck to it! The bottle reminds me of a teflon pan, it just slides right off!

So if you like to cook, make shakes, etc, this is a great buy for you! Although I hate to think Christmas is coming in a few months this would be a great Christmas gift! Buys yours now!!

Sears Hometown Store Review

I had the great honor of reviewing the Sears store in River Falls,WI. Some may say, "a Sear's in River Falls?" Yes there is a Sears store located by Shopko. The Sears has been in that location for 15 years and is locally owned. They offer a variety of items. They have appliances, snow blowers, lawn tractors, tools, TVs, and more!

I walked in and was immediately greeted with a warm welcome.(Before I announced who I was) While I am not looking for any apppliances, I did find numerous lawn games that were 75% off! They had a variety of items, and a great deal of items on cleareance, one of my favorite things!

The store was VERY clean and well kept. I told my husband I will be very happy if I can fit a stroller through the aisles. That is one thing as a mom that I dislike, going to a store and not being able to even push an umbrella stroller around. I am happy to report there was plenty of space! While the store is small, they have a lot of things in there, and have really organized it well.

I liked the hometown feel, and know that if I was a regular customer they would probably be the store to call me by name and to know all my information.

Sears also offers a rewards program.The rewards card does not need a credit check, and it is good at Lands End, and Kmart too! You will receive 1 point for every eligible $1 you spend. One thing I thought that was super neat when using my card (that I orinally got for Kmart, but found out I can use at Sears!!) when you use the card it asks if you want a copy of your reciept or to have it emailed to you, or both! Way to be green! I think that is a great feature.

Also Sears in River Falls is on Facebook! Please ADD THEM and tell them I sent you! Plus as an added bonus for being a Facebook friend, every Thursday the will post a coupon good for Friday and Saturday. They also post various deals on their page so you can know what is happening in the store!

I highly receommend everyone that is in need of appliances, tools, lawn care items, etc, to check them out! It is a great business, and I love that they are locally owned and so friendly.
