Jon asked me if I was excited about Mother’s Day this morning. My response was a ho-hum, “Should I be?”
Then I felt bad. I mean, it is a day to celebrate mom’s. I’m a mom. I have a mom. I write a mom-blog. I should be one happy Mother’s Day celebrating fool. So, sorry hubs. Yes, I’m excited.
I’m excited that I get to be the mom of two, soon three, boys. I’m excited that I get to live so close to my own mom, who I have a great relationship with and am so glad gets to be near my children as I (attempt to) raise them. And, let’s be honest, I’m a wee bit excited about panning out some of my mom-chores for the day.
I’m also excited that I about my decision to give away one very awesome gift to my readers in honor of Mother’s Day…
Generally, when I’m approached by companies to do a review it goes a little something like this: What do you want me to review? What is the value of the product and is it worth my time to take photos and do a write up? What’s in it for my readers? What great thing can I give them?
Except recently, I was contacted by a PR company representing Keurig. And although they didn’t have a product for me to give away, they did have a product for me to try and review. And let’s be honest folks, I’m a coffee drinking gal. So naturally (despite my love of securing my readers great goodies), I said yes.
Enter my new best friend: the Special Edition Keurig K60 Brewing System. Seriously. I love. LOVE. LOVE this thing. Like, how did I ever live without it?
I love that I can get a cup of coffee in a minute. You know, for those afternoons when you feel yourself slipping into an afternoon nap…. I love that I can get a cup of freshly brewed iced tea in a minute. You know, for when it’s steamy-hot outside and I have to go wait for the big yellow school bus… And, I love that I can get a cup of hot cocoa at night in one minute. You know, for those moments when I really could house a giant bag of m&m’s, but a cup of chocolatey goodness will really do the trick…
So yes, I accepted the opportunity to brag about Keurig on my blog. It’s a great gift. It’s a great Mother’s Day gift. It’s a great appliance that you don’t need an excuse to buy. Just get it.
Ooh, and I really love the little organizer I found at the Container Store for all of my K-cups that I now find myself buying at the grocery store. So convenient. Had to share. (*note: the link is to the only on-line place I could find the one I have, but there are plenty of others similar to mine if you just google it.)
Now, I started to feel bad when contemplating this review. Am I really going to tell my readers how much I love and use this thing without giving them one of their own? Nah, that just doesn’t seem right.
