Lookie what I just got in the mail!

I hear a knock at the door and I open it to find the UPS man with this HUGE box in his hand....he hands it to me and asks if I can carry it "it's a little heavy" he says. Oh Pfftttt......really, I can carry this....I say grabbing it from him and smiling through my gritted teeth because indeed it is kinda heavy...what the heck is in there?

I open it and find this inside, I literally jumped for joy and my family came running to figure out what the commotion was. I guess they thought I had opened the door to Publisher's Clearing House, but to me it was even better than a check for money.....because you see, the wonderful people at Crock Pot sent me this:

One of their newer slow cooker models, for little ol' me. They read my blog and saw the Slow Cooking Thursdays and then contacted me to find out if I would be interested in trying one of their newer models. Uhh....are you KIDDING me? Not only interested, literally begging LOL So I want to thank Crock Pot and Merideth specifically, you guys rock :) And I have to thank you my wonderful faithful readers that participate in my Slow Cooking Thursday every week.

I'll be using the crockpot tomorrow and then I'll tell you all about it and you can be sure that I'll be thinking of you all while I play with my new toy. Oh and PLAY I will...I'm more excited than I was when I was pregnant with Nicholas and found out that the base hospital had just started using epidurals. LOL

ps I am loving every second of Christy! I just finished episode 10 and have 11-13 to watch tonight! Woot! What do you think of Tales from Avonlea? I put the entire North and South miniseries on my queue for when I'm done with Christy and the Tudors! Did you ever see it?

That is the COOLEST !! Look at that thing !!! My crock pot died - sadly - while it had a meal in it ! I came to check it after, oh 6 hours or so, and it was STONE COLD !! So now ... the bowl stores my potatoes !! I'll be buying a new crock pot soon ! But I don't really use it much in the summer so I'm kinda waitin' til Fall to go buy a new one ! Can't wait to hear all about this one ... maybe it will be one to consider !

Good Morning Sandra,
Oh my gosh, you lucky woman you. You get to play with a new toy. I know you are very excited about trying it out. I would be too. I do have a question. Do the people send you stuff like that all the time to try things out for them? Just curious here. It looks like a very nice Crock Pot. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Samantha said...

im completely jealous, i have to have one now!! :D

i wonder if kelly will let me buy one...i've always thought it would be rather clever to be able to use the stoneware part in any cooking device, because sometimes....it just...fits.

anyways..

how fun! :D

Sarah said...
