… my delightful husband pretended he didn’t want us spending money on a blender (when I really, really wanted to start making us healthy green smoothies) only to surprise me the night I finished my last credential class with (da da da da!) The Ninja!
He claimed he’s only just decided the day before to get it for me, but I’d given up asking weeks earlier because I just knew he would do it at some point. I thought it would be for my family birthday dinner, but he chose to do it for finishing my final class, which works just as well!
This thing’s awesome! I made us some simple green smoothies tonight: strawberries, blueberries, bananas, and the special green ingredient– spinach! 
We’ll start trying out various recipes soon with more daring greens like kale and chard and dandelion root. Woo-hoo for being healthy!
