Black Friday! Buy This, Seriously, You'll Thank Me.

If you buy one thing this holiday season, I encourage you to buy this.

What is it?  It's an amazing blender.  Yes it's pricey, but Jess and I don't regret this investment in our health at all.

We use this most mornings to make green smoothies.  There is no other way I would get so many fruits and vegetables in my system.  We mix greens, bananas, berries, sometimes apples, and sometimes other things like chia seeds, or coconut milk in there and blend it up and it's actually really tasty.  The sweetness of the fruits completely covers up any taste of the greens.  

The vitamix is easy to use, it's the most powerful tool I own, (my drill runs off triple a batteries) and it's easy to clean, which means you're actually going to use it.

When we bought it, it had a 30 day money back guarantee, which I told Jess we would absolutely send it back if we weren't using it every day because it's to expensive to just be a counter decoration.  

It also comes with a 7 year warranty.  We've had ours over a year, and had no problems with it, we've even travelled with it.

If you buy today from the link above we get 4-6% of the sale, and it cost you nothing extra.

If you're doing other shopping online and want to help us out.  Please at no extra cost to you, click below on our Amazon Affiliate link and shop as normal!  We will get 4-6% of everything you buy and it will cost you nothing extra.

Engage:  Did you stay up all night and face the crowds?  Did you get anything awesome?  Let us know in the comments.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Blog Friends :)  

Since we live in Hawaii Jess and I are going to make it tradition to hop in the ocean every Thanksgiving.  

Before we were dating we were both in Kona together and went to the beach on Thanksgiving and Jess got such a kick out of it because I'm sure it was snowing in Ohio.  

We're thankful for your readership!  

What are you thankful for this year?  Leave us a comment and let us know, or share with us a unique or your favorite Thanksgiving dish!

Church Goals

Kris Vallaton recently posted this on his facebook page.  I'm not 100% clear on their time line for this, if this is called Vision 2022, because they want everyone to be doing these things by 2022 or what but nonetheless... I found these to be really solid, tangible, specific, good goals, and I wanted to share them with you.
