Happy, Happy Birthday!

Sometimes the stars are aligned and everything just falls into place.  Recently, I celebrated my birthday while driving 9 hours from Columbus to Atlanta to support my husband participate in his first long distance Road Skate.  Before we left home, I opened my one-and-only birthday present--a shiny new Cuisinart Temperature Control Kettle! 

Two things make this an awesome gift:
 1) I mentioned this kettle to my husband months ago after reading a review in a magazine.  I thought my subtle aside was a "hey, listen to this cool thing I read about" conversation, not a "PAY ATTENTION I want this thing for my birthday hint."  He remembers it as the latter--yay for me either way!

2) It is lovely and amazing!  This is the mother of all programmable kettles. 

What makes it so great you ask? 

Well, let me tell you
  • It has temperature settings to heat water for a specific tea types
  • Its cordless so you can refresh your mug two rooms away
  • There is an illuminated water gage that allows you to see exactly how many liters of water are inside (so what if I don't know a liter from a kilometer)
  • It has a Keep Warm feature that allows the johnny-come-late-cup to mosey on down to the kitchen and reap the benefits of another's hard labor
I could go on and on, but no one likes a braggart!

Sharing the love of tea and a thoughtful hubby,
