Valentine's Day Present To Me

I'm doing it. I'm going to buy a treadmill. And I'm going to do it this weekend (at least the shopping around thing, because you know, not everyone is like Progressive.) Do y'all have any recommendations? I want to buy one in the sub $700 range, and I don't think Craigslist is an option, just because I want a ticketed receipt, warranty, and return policy.

If you or someone you know has a treadmill that fits my price range and likes it, please let me know the make and model. I'll be forever grateful! And bonus points if the treadmill in question folds up. I know L.A. isn't quite N.Y.C., but space is still precious.

P.S. I'm so glad you also like cozy pants. I'm wearing my years-old Juicy snap-pocket velour pants right this second. Oh, so cozy.

P.P.S. The Boyfriend and I saw my elusive next door neighbor tonight (one of the neighbors I said I wanted to meet as part of my New Year's resolutions), and she's so cute! He was all, "You should be friends with her and then we can hook her up with one of my friends." Boys. Always looking out for others.

P.P.P.S. Krista, thanks for asking about the rat situation! No sign of him yet. He took the trap, and well, nothing! I keep checking, with one eye open carefully prying open the closet door, but he's still a no show! I really, really appreciate your concern!
I loved all of your comments from all of you, by the way, on the vermin situation. I would never want to hurt an animal, ANY animal, but I can't be sharing my fruit bowl with rats! Best case scenario, the trap scared him, he took it with him to the nearest recycling center, and went on to lead a politically and socially correct rat life, never to be seen (or heard) from again.

P.P.P.P.S. My second Farm Fresh To You box comes tomorrow! I'm SO beyond excited to see what comes in it! And what I'm going to make! The possibilities are endless!!!

P.P.P.P.P.S. That just reminded me, tonight The Boyfriend and I were at my favorite Italian restaurant in West Hollywood, and the pasta options on the menu are listed as "Pastabilities." Lol. SO queso.

P.P.P.P.P.P.S. Robyn over at Girl On Raw is having an amazing giveaway for some RAW magazines! Go enter! And follow her while you're at it, she's totally amazing.


  1. Hey mama, I cant believe youre gonna get a treadmill! Wow that's big. No pun intended. No help on recommendations, only on dehydrators LOL

  2. I just wrote about my loathing for dreadmills on todays post! LOL! Good luck to you my friend! :)

    P.S. I totally cracked up at all your P.S.'s :)

  3. I have no recommendations, but what a great gift.

    You must have a HUGE apartment because a treadmill would never fit in my home.

  4. Best of luck treadmill shopping!!!! Can't wait to see which one you choose.

  5. Ha, I love all of your PS's, that doesn't sound right... But you know what I mean.

    I love the comment about your pretty girl, stranger neighbor and your hubs wanting you to become friends with her just for the sake of his friends. So funny. Sounds like something my husband would say.

    Good luck shopping for a treadmill.

  6. i think it's great you're getting yourself the treadmill. happy vday to you!

  7. I don't know any specific brands, but just get one with a good incline. It's great being able to watch tv and not get dizzy, while still getting in a crazy workout.

  8. Aw a treadmill, wooo hoo. Have you thought about renting one to begin with to test out the brand you like? I did that years ago and it was a great and economical way to go.

    Also thanks for the shout outs lovely lady :)

  9. AHHH so jealous! Enjoy that thing, girly... I'm sure you can find it in your price range. That would make things so much more convenient...

    Happy V-Day to you and the boy, Erin!


Thanks for your comments! Hope you stop by again soon! XO!
