No Freezing Cold Hands

by Courtney on October 10, 2011

Per your request, here are the details from this weekend’s wedding attire!

Dress: Taylor (purchased at TJ Maxx)

Shoes: Style & Co. (from Macy’s)

Handsome Arm Candy: Jay Horan Winking smile

*****

I’ve been busy with a bunch of things all morning and afternoon, so an actual sit-down lunch has not been in the cards. Rather, I’ve been breaking things up here and there to keep me full and fueled.

First up, a Strawberry Almond smoothie – in my new Tervis Tumbler!

Tervis Tumbler

I received this Tervis tumbler last week through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program and decided to give it a go today. I’ve long had my eye on these in the stores, so I was psyched to finally have one of my own to try out. Tervis tumblers are awesome because:

  • They are basically indestructible
  • They come with a lifetime guarantee
  • They keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot
  • Double-wall insulation keeps away annoying condensation rings (<—the worst!)

I was able to enjoy my smoothie today without the usual freezing cold hands like I usually get, which was great. And also, even though it was in a cup and not a bowl, you best believe that I still ate this baby with a spoon!

A little while later I also ended up snacking on some baby carrots and hommus, as well as one of my muffins I baked up last night.

I’m still not totally sold on them, so I’ve still got to work out a few things before I share. Hopefully soon!

Alrighty folks, time to get back to work.; even though Monday’s are technically now my day off from work, I’m trying to use them wisely and get a lot of other blog and house stuff accomplished.

Catch ya later tonight with a yummy dinner! Smile

Question for the Afternoon:

Have you ever tried out/owned a Tervis tumbler? What do you think?

I drink my smoothies out of a similar cup- so much nicer than drinking out of a regular glass!

I haven’t ever used a Tervis tumbler, but I have some tumblers for my iced drinks. The one I have always gets condensation!

I haven’t heard of Tervis. I do have a tumbler, it’s got the double wall so no condensation/hot hands/cold hands. I got mine from a local coffee shop. My son managed to snap my straw in half and I can’t find a replacement, which is bumming me out.

I got the same tumbler and I love it! I have a similar tumbler from Starbucks that I got for iced coffee, but the Tervis blows it out of the water. I think I’m going to order a top and straw for mine so I can take it on the go.

I just got that Tervis tumbler too! I cannot wait to try it out. It seems like it’s going to be great. I cannot stand when cups leave condenstation rings on my desk at work. So I’m happy to see that this Tervis tumbler doesn’t do that! :)

I own several Tervis tumblers…love them!! And I agree, condensation rings are the worst! When I use a Tervis tumbler, my mom doesn’t have to nag me to use a coaster. ;)

The Trevis tumblers are awesome. I just bought one for my husband with is alma mater mascot (Fresno Bulldogs!) on it and he loves it. They’re so expensive, but it’s totally worth it for the lifetime warranty.

TERVIS!!!!!!! I am so glad the Tervs are getting some face time on your blog!! I grew up watching my grandparents use them and my parents and now my hubby and I have started our collection! It is crazy to see how much the company has grown…now there are whole aisles at Bed Bath and Beyond dedicated to Tervis’. Right now we only have 3…Cleveland Browns, Texas A&M and a “Don’t Mess With Texas” one. I think I will get a breast cancer one this month!

I’m waiting for my tervis tumbler to arrive. To say I’m excited is an understatement! I always look at them in the store and never buy it. Psyched to test it out :)

I have read about Tervis all over. I want to get a bunch for us. In the meantime, I’m getting my brother-in-law some for Christmas. And we’ll see how indestructible they really are if they survive him and their puppy.

I have a Tervis Tumbler and love it! I only use it for smoothies, though. I love your dress from the wedding; you always look so nice in everything! The muffin looks delicious and healthy? ;) Can’t wait to see the recipe!

Yes! I love Tervis Tumblers! Mine has a black and red floral design on it and I got it at Bed Bath & Beyond…it’s made carting my smoothies around so much easier, and just like you, I most definitely still eat them with a spoon too ;)

All of your smoothies sound SO good! But I don’t have any protein powder or xanthum gum. Anything you would recommend to give it an extra boost/thicken it up?

Tervis Tumblers are all the rage in the South (the factory is located in South Florida)! We have at least 20 in our cabinet, including a set that we received for our wedding that say “The Carters”. Love them!

I have a Tervis tumbler and I love it! I also have a lid for it. It is my favorite cup. I use it for hot and cold drinks. So far it has been indestructible. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good cup. I only own 2 right now because they are a little pricey for a cup but totally worth it.

I love my Tervis tumblers! My aunt and uncle live about 10 minutes from the outlet store in Osprey, FL and I always end up buying one or two new ones when I visit.
