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

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Personalized Cart
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 me...in 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!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
