Under Armour Vacuum Bottle

28 Aug

* Under Armour Stainless Steel 24 oz Vacuum Bottle *

Ok, I am impressed.  My husband just began working for Under Armour.  He is really excited about this brand.  I am excited for him.  And now I am excited for me too.  He surprised me with this new ‘water bottle’ last night after his first day on the job.  He was bragging about how all the employees swear by it; and that the one girl said she had filled her bottle with ice and a drink in the morning and MANY hours later the ice was still in the drink.  It had not melted…practically at all.  He told me he got me the last one they had in the store and that he’d give it to me and wait to get himself one when more stock arrived.  (How sweet)  🙂

So, this morning at 7am I filled my new thermos with ice and a drink and headed out to work.  Now, more than 7 hours later, though my drink was 2/3 gone, my ice is still about 75% in tact.  Unreal!  It is nice to have a truly *cold* beverage for hours.  Great engineering Under Armour!  Bravo!  I can’t wait to try more of your products.

Advertisements – I Gave it a Whirl

27 Aug

Some days, I feel as though all I do is buy cat food. I feed my two finicky felines the canned Natural Balance duck and green pea formula, which I normally buy at Petco. Petco’s prices on litter, treats and toys are higher than both Petsmart and my grocery store, so the only thing I buy at Petco is the food.

The idea of having cat food delivered to my door sent me right to my computer when I received a coupon in the mail.

The site had the right food available, and it was delivered in good condition a day earlier than promised. Thumbs up for that.

Thumbs down on price. The price is equal to what I pay at Petco. Add shipping on top of that and it’s no bargain. (Free shipping is available on orders greater than $49.)

Thumbs down on convenience. I had to sign for my delivery. With my work schedule, that is more inconvenient than going to the store. If the price was right, I could have the package delivered to work, but it would have to be a lot cheaper for it to be worth lugging the package out to my car. (It’s a long-ish walk from my office to the parking garage.)

For me, just doesn’t make sense, but if it works out for you, let us know in the comments!


Myles Pizza Pub in Bowling Green, Ohio

17 Aug

One of my nephews just started at BGSU. I, of course, told him about Myles Pizza Pub and he ordered his first of what I am sure will be many Myles pizzas last night. I am so jealous!  I have not had a Myles Pizza since 1995! Last night, Steven sent me this photo and it looks as amazing as I remember. I am fairly certain that my old college roomie and I personally are responsible for keeping Myles Pizza Pub in Bowling Green, Ohio in business from 1991-1995. We ordered from them at least 2ce a week.  My favorite was just a pepperoni/double cheese pizza.  That’s what it looks like in the picture if my memory serves correct.  But they also had a “breakfast pizza” that actually had scrambled eggs, ham, bacon, etc.  Sounds odd but trust me…A..M..A..Z..I..N..G..

What’s that I sense?  Is there a road trip on the horizon??  Mmmmm…Myles pizza (said in the voice of Homer Simpson of course.)
