Good Day

Today was a good day.

It all started last night. I'm in a few health groups on Facebook, and on one of them I jokingly said something like "I've broken two Kitchen Aid blenders by trying to be healthy." Funny, right? I had a few people comment saying to get a Ninja or Magic Bullet etc etc. Someone even mentioned to check Marshalls or TJ Maxx, which is a super great idea. One person also commented and said something like I'm actually a manager at Kitchen Aid, if you want you can message me and see if we can do anything.

I was thinking, eh, why not.? I didn't think anything could be done because one blender is five years old and the other I got earlier this year in the spring. And really the blenders aren't broke, it was the blades at the bottom of the jars. So I PM'd this person, who was an acquaintance. I'd never spoken to him before but I knew of him.

Anyway, he asked for the model number and serial numbers of both and I gave it to him. He got back to me and guess what he said! He said they would give me a new pitcher for my older blender and completely replace the newer one! A whole NEW BLENDER! WHAAAAAT! And for free! I'm still completely floored by this. I just have to send my blender back to them. And that's prepaid as well. I can't even believe all this! So awesome!

So I called, gave him my address and they will be here in a few weeks!

I think I must have thanked him at least 10 times. And he was so nice on the phone and then said Kitchen Aid really likes to take care of their customers. And I agree! First, I can't believe he would reach out on a FB post, and then help me with my blenders, AND the company allows their employees to do that! I'm getting a pitcher for my blender that is 5 years old! If that doesn't say "we love our customers" I don't know what does.

I called and told my mom about this. She has also had a wonderful experience with Kitchen Aid. They replaced her pasta maker when it broke! What a great comapny! Anyway, this thing has totally made my day.

And tonight, I was able to talk to my friend in Peru, Her name is Emily and she absolutely rocks. She said sometime she wants to come to Utah, I hope she does, I would love to meet her in person one day.

Such a good day. And it doesn't even count the normal good everyday things like spending time with my boys.

Great day.



Oh man. Mike makes me laugh. Here are a few things he's said the past few weeks.

I had just looked at the news on TV and it said The Utah Pano Man had died or something like that.
Me: Mike, The Piano Man died.
Mike: Oh. The violinist probably killed him with a G-string.
Me: Uncontrollable laughter
Mike: No, the string on the violin, Emily.

Mike: I went to the store today, so I'm going to reward myself with a Kool-Aid Jammer.
Me: Nice!
Mike: It says Artificial Flavor! That's my favorite flavor!

Me: Hey honey, will you go pick up the pizzas? They are under my name.
Mike: So, is it under Emily or Will?
Me: MICHAEL! Get out!
