Violet the Vita- MIX!

I got myself a little present!

Any ideas on what it could possibly be?!


Jackson was almost as excited as I was to open it…almost!


If you guessed the most amazing blender known to (wo)mankind – you guessed right!


I recently came across an amazing deal on OpenSky and I have been eyeing these mixers for some time now so I figured just to go for it!


I purchased the Turbo Blend 4500 – This is now priced at $499 – when I purchased it, it was priced for $399 and I had a 50% off coupon so I got it for $200! I saved up a bit and  sold my old juicer to make some room for my new appliance! 

It pretty much the deal of the year!


Oh my goodness, she is gorgeous! I think I need to name her! Maybe Violet the Vita-Mix? Thoughts? Suggestions?

Anyone else out there name their appliances? Only the special ones, obviously!


The only problem is she is such a beast that Violet doesn’t fit under my counter shelves. So I am going to have to store it like this, side to side, but that’s not so bad!


I can’t wait to use this! Ahhhh! I am so excited!


I haven’t even made anything yet but I am already in love!


Blender kisses all around!


The one thing I did do with my new Vita-Mix was clean it! Cleaning this baby is so easy. You just fill it up with water and drop in a few drops of cleaning fluid and turn it on for about 30 seconds. It pretty much cleans itself.

A million times easier than taking apart my old juicer and cleaning it!


It also came with a handy dandy recipe book, which I have already looked through and I can’t wait to try some out!

Can you tell how excited I am for this? I am going to be juicing and blending and pureeing up a storm!


What should my first Vita- Mix creation be? Any suggestions?

    Ooh, let me know what you end up making. I just bought a Vita-Mix from Costco, but I'm so overwhelmed with the options hehe.

    The clean up looks so easy. Totally my kind of appliance. I really like making meals but I don't like cleaning up after them.

    Now THAT is a gift and a half!!! You'll have to let us know how it works out. I've been on the fence with buying one but since I shelled out some $$$ for my Jenn-Air, I'd feel guilty for buying a new one 🙁

    How awesome! What a deal you got.

    I just got a Vitamix 5200. I got a refurbished one to save some $$ but not near the same deal you got.

    I absolutely love it and can't stop making smoothies!
