Let’s reminisce for a second, shall we?! Did you know that over 10 years ago we made our first ever couple tool purchase? It was a Black and Decker jig saw… A few hours after purchasing that baby we got to work cutting off the the peninsula in our kitchen to create an island and a space for a dishwasher, one of the best changes we made to our first house…. and a really good memory that started it all…
(I know your all jealous of my hot posing ability… honestly it is like a sickness, I don’t think I can be normal in front of a camera!)
So, imagine how fun it was for us that in March, Justin and I got the opportunity to go to Phoenix Arizona to meet Black and Decker (and a bunch of other great bloggers) to learn about Black and Decker’s new line of Gas free lawn tools (get ready to drool people, these are cool!), go to a baseball game (which was surprisingly fun, and REALLY hot!) and then visit my sister Noelle who lives in Mesa!….

Now let me admit one thing at the beginning of this post, I need to be perfectly honest. Taking out the trash and mowing the lawn fall firmly in Justin’s domain… Yep that is right, I reserve the right to pass that work off to Justin at all times. But more than that we have always had annoying, old, stinky, lawn care equipment with all sorts of weird quirks and I am NOT a patient women when it comes to starting equipment… I will give it about 5 chances to start, if it doesn’t start and I’ve flooded the engine with oil or gas, then I give up! (or start cursing under me breathe and then give up)
So I admit it, there is one issue that I have with this new line of lawn care- and that is that I no longer have any excuse as to why I can’t mow the lawn. I am not sure my husband will allow that excuse of “I’ve gotta write a blog post”.
I know you weren’t able to come with us to Arizona, so you might be thinking, what is the point of the post? How about a quick review and and an awesome giveaway?! You are definitely going to want to win this one!
