Coordinate-Engraved YETI Tumbler: Meaningful Location + Hardy Cup #Sponsored

I received complimentary product for the purpose of review,

A few weeks ago I was contacted by someone at Personalized Cart who offered me a product of my choice in exchange for an honest review.* She had a couple of suggestions, including jewelry and kitchenware. I knew exactly what I wanted when I saw they had Coordinate-Engraved YETI Tumbler (here).

So, there are two things I'll cover in this post: first, the process and quality of Personalized Cart and, second, the quality of the product that they personalized for this case the YETI tumbler. Sounds fair, right?

I have long wanted a YETI tumbler. And, in fact, when I saw that my husband had purchased one last month, I was envious. Then I realized that he purchased it as a gift for his dad. So, I opted to get this cup for Jake and hope that he shared it with me. 

Personalized Cart also offers the YETI tumbler with initials, with a sugar skull design, with a snowflake design. But I really wanted to get the coordinates of a meaningful location on the cup.

I considered Willemstad, Curaçao where he proposed; a house in Prunedale where we first kissed; the church where we were married. But, in the end, the coordinates I selected were of our friend's house in Monterey. It's where I first met Jake. 

The etching is perfect and shipping was fast! Once ordered, mine arrived in less than a week.

Okay, on to the cup itself. YETI, the brand, has become synonymous with durability and quality. But, while their entire line of goods from coolers to tumblers enjoys a stellar reputation, they are always infamous for being some of the most expensive. I wanted to see if the accolades are well-deserved. So, I put the tumbler through its paces compared to my other favorite insulated tumbler made by a different company.

Though I don't normally nurse a cup of tea or coffee for a full day's work, I wanted to see how long it would stay hot. So, I made two cups of tea and poured one into my other tumbler and one into the YETI. I put the lids on both and took them to work. Even at lunchtime - after 4 hours! - the YETI tea was still hot! And, at the end of the day - so, after 8 hours - it was still more than warm. That's pretty astounding.

I have to say: The YETI's reputation is well-deserved. Yes, it's expensive, but it's definitely a hardy, high-quality cup that's worth every penny of the $30 it costs. And I am thrilled to have one in my cupboard for those days when Jake doesn't take it to work. Then, it's all mine!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce
