What I Love This Week

Making a Green Smoothie in the Vitamix

This past week felt like real, live springtime. We fired up the grill, made smoothies, took James to the park a few times, and opened up all the windows to let the fresh air in. I loved every second of it. On Tuesday, my amazing sister-in-law came over to watch James so Daniel and I could go see Us. We treated it like it was the first and last time we’ll ever go to the movies; we played arcade games for half an hour before the show, got a large popcorn, soda, candy, the whole shebang. It was so nice. And it was 3 in the afternoon so there wasn’t a soul in the theater. As for the movie, no spoilers but I liked it, didn’t love it (not like Get Out anyway).

Eureka Blaze 3-in-1 Swivel Lightweight Stick Vacuum and Handheld Vacuum ($29.99)

Since we have so few rugs in our house, I tend to rely on my Swiffer (dry and wet mop) to clean all of my floors. And when I want to vacuum the rugs, I lug my hog of a shop vac up from the basement. But the more mobile James becomes (full-on army crawling), the more I find myself wanting to vacuum more often. Enter: the Eureka Blaze Stick Vacuum. It was $30, has 1500 positive reviews, is corded (corded ones tend to last longer than battery-powered), incredibly lightweight, and allows you to quickly and easily turn it into a handheld vacuum for stairs, sofas, etc. So far, I love it. Having a lightweight vacuum that isn’t a pain to lug around means that I’m much more likely to vacuum frequently (both upstairs and down), and that’s a very good thing.
