I bought myself 3 new fancy toys this summer. I tend to be pretty damn cheap, so this was a big deal for me.
1) After many, many years of borrowing one/going to someone else’s house to serge the tiniest part of an alteration, I finally bought a serger.
A Brother 1034D–delightfully basic, great reviews, great price, differential feed. Loving it so far!
2) We got married 4 years ago. So many of our dear family and friends gave us gift cards to Bed, Bath, and Beyond. They finally turned into this:
(bad pic, but amazing product.)
A Shark Navigator Liftaway Pro.Our house is primarily hardwood with a few area rugs, and this vacuum is perfect. The microfiber pad attachment? Brilliant. I love it.
3) I had an old Garmin eTrex gps that bit the dust 2 years ago. After a lovely conversation with a Garmin rep, I finally–FINALLY–traded the old unit in for a credit toward a Garmin Forerunner 15.
It arrived the same day as a necklace honoring my homeland.
So far, I LOVE the watch. I’ve never had one before, so I can’t comment on missing any of the advanced features that other watches provide. It tracks my distance, pace, calories, HR. Love using the heart rate monitor strap in my cycling classes–makes teaching much more focused!
I am still twirling with excitement over these three things.
do you have any recent purchases that have quickly become must haves?
