decided about two weeks before Christmas that he REALLY wanted to enter into the Vitamix world. Well, this was a surprise to me…. especially since I had already purchased Michael’s Christmas a week earlier!!! I debated it. Those things are PRICEY and while I really wanted to try out the whole “Green Drink” phenomenon, I wasn’t sure if it was really all that it was cracked to be. You see, Michael loves gadgets and since I love Michael…. I bought him one. I returned some of his other gifts that were just “so-so” and surprised Michael with his dream blender on Christmas morning!
