Have you registered it yet? I did mine last night and with thier coupon offer I was able to order about $100 worth of K-Cups for $55...makes them about 38 cents a piece instead of 87 cents. That's cheaper than I can get them at Walmart and a MUCH bigger selection.

I got the mini for the office, it's perfect for there. And very portable, so I can take it on vacation.

Shrek just couldn't stand it anymore and told me what he had ordered. It should be here Tuesday. Here's a link to what he ordered:

Entertaining - Swirl Dinnerware

Just the dishes, not all the accessories. I've been looking at these for a couple of years.

Those are beautiful! So earthy and I find spirals have a spiritual feel!

Yes, definitely me. Like I said, I've been looking over them for a couple of years. Shrek ordered them behind my back...he is so sweet! After I told him not to, since they were so much.

>>>clean keyboard>>>>

I've heard the picture of them on the site does not do them justice. I'll post a pic when mine arrive. The color highlights are described as teal and purple...I can't wait. The best part, Shrek ordered them while they were have a special on gift certificates...it will include a certificate for $100 and I already had one for $80...I may be able to get the rad tea set!

Figured you'd have to find a way to get the tea set. Me, I would have liked that more than the plates.

Looking at the price of the tea pot, again...I think I'm going to pass. They have lovely knitwear from Ireland that I would appreciate more. I already have most of the jewelry from there that I like.

GAH! I tried multi-quoting this bit about the Keurig, but...I somehow lost the beginning of it...

A couple of weeks before x-mas, my youngest daughter & I went to Bed, Bath & Beyond (the femine version of a manly Lowes or Home Depot)...some guy was there doing demos of this contraption. Ok, sure, - we want to give it a try too. Daughter got hot chocolate, &, I got glazed donut coffee. I nearly shot my britches when I realized how quickly this thing brewed. Next, I darn near fainted when he quoted the "sale" price.
Needless to say, I came home yammerin' like a loon about this thing to my DH. Of course, he was confused, because, I don't EVER drink coffee(very serious about that too - none...."before") LOL

Anyhow, "Santa" did bring me my new "baby", &, I am sure to break the thing before Feb....I LOVE it! I use it for all kinds of various reasons too...dirty dishes need a hot soak? Keurig...need to get a start on boiling water? Keurig...dare I say it- cup of noodles? Keurig...I have found a million ways to get past the K-cups too...plus, I got the my K-cup, &, not much I'm not brewing. I tell it good morning, kiss it goodnight, give it a loving pat even sometimes...I think Keurig should reimburse me SOMETHING for my lunatic review too!

PS, the sound it makes when it is heating up the water? ...Heavenly!!
