Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. With three little kids and almost 13 years of marriage, I’m just hoping hubs will come home from work and sing something romantic to me.

“Let’s go Outback to-niiiight!” 

Curbside takeaway=porn for moms. Aim high. (I know. How greedy of me to hope for more after the promise of microwave slippers a few weeks ago. Don’t get all jealous, ladies. It’s not a good look!)

Hey, we can’t ALL live at Downton Abbey. My cook and lady maid are on extended vacay. Listen, we all have to play the hand we’re dealt! (Sometimes you get to frolic upstairs at Downton and eat with 27 silver utensils, sometimes you have to stir soup downstairs, and sometimes you’re stuck in suburgatory!) I’m not an addict. 

With arctic temps and over two feet of snow dumped on us this past weekend, it’s no shock my Valentine and I have our biggest rows over the thermostat. You’d think the muffin top would insulate but nooooo. Irish McFreezypants had to marry a hot blooded Italian who wears t-shirts inside the house in winter and fans himself with all the dramatics of a strange southern debutante with a Boston accent, “I’m sweeeeltahring!”

I’m sorry, Scahlett O’Hah-ra. Jeez. Since I’m shuffling about like a 4 foot kid from A Christmas Story, I’m not sympathetic!

So imagine my delight when I got the chance to review a Honeywell Energy Smart 360 Surround heater—just in time for the most wonderful time of the year! Along with mah gift of extra, energy efficient warmth, I received the following info which, I believe, demonstrates I am NOT the cray cray one in this house!

JUDGE AND JURY, I REST MY CASE!

MMM HMM. That’s what I’m talkin’ about.

I have to say this is a great little ceramic heater. It’s perfect to put under my desk by my feet while I work on my next book read Peep, and in our playroom which is often chilly since it abuts the non-heated garage–and it’s lightweight enough with convenient carrying handle to tote wherever my muffin top desires! It’s super quiet so it will not disturb any important Mario Kart racing, Lord Grantham viewing, or wine slurping. It has a wonderful control panel allowing you to adjust the temperature depending on how Christmas Story-ish you’re feeling, and how energy conscious you are! (Hey super duper green peeps, tada! You can pre-program the thermostat and even see how much energy you’re using with this heater.) This heater packs a punch as it can blast heat all the way around–hence the 360– or you can just use the 180 for a more targeted effect, and has excellent safety features like an overheat protection device, so you don’t burn the joint down! Bonus! (No really. Remember when Italian boy almost burned the house down thawing a pipe last year?)

Here’s what this little beauty looks like in real life—so you can see the scale:

SEE? TOTALLY COMPACT AND UNOBTRUSIVE!

Good news, m’ ladies (and m’ cold lords), you too can have a chance to experience this gem. Honeywell has graciously offered to send a heater to one lucky, soon to be toasty roasty, muffintopmommy reader. All you have to do is leave a comment with your name, and we will have a super official drawing—probably someone under 8 years old will pick a name out of a mixing bowl. You don’t even have to subscribe to mah blog, like me on Facebook, leave a blood sample, follow me on twitter, Pinterest, or the grocery store! (But I surely love when you do— minus the grocery store stalking–I don’t need you seeing the processed snacks in my cart!) Please enter here by next Monday, February, 18th by midnight. South Floridians need not apply. (I’m kidding! I know it gets like 45 down there at 2 in the morning once a year, you lovelies!). Heaters can be shipped to U.S. addresses only.

So what are you waiting for? Even if you don’t win, microwave slippers and a fabulous portable heater? For $59.99, or roughly the price of a Lands’ End sweater, you’re totally in biz. Visit www.kaz.com for more information on this and other Honeywell heaters.

Stay warm, muffintoppers!

*Honeywell did provide me with a free heater for review purposes. All opinions expressed are 100% my own. As usual. Ahem. 

SOMEONE LOOKS LIKE HE COULD USE SOME HEAT!

Would LOVE this. Especially since we ALWAYS loose power. This with the generator would be helpful – we can all huddle around it.

@Kelly, great point. How could I forget that? We lose power in Cow Hampsh all the time!!! Hope you’re staying warm this storm!

ReplyReply

Cool! Or should I say warm? That would have come in handy after shoveling out the driveway the other day.

ReplyReply

@Suzanne, your little friend would’ve shared! After he fell in the snow and proclaimed, “I am JUST so angry. I hate snow!”

ReplyReply

D’oh, that’s quite a face plant!
That heater is way slick — way to go scoring the loot, MTM!

ReplyReply

Any loot that keeps me warm? Yes, puhlease!

ReplyReply

Ooooo! I could use one of those! We are always inadvertantly freezing out the guests who sleep in the bedroom over the garage.

BTW, my kids are so jealous of the snow you had! We got a piddly dusting a few weeks ago. they managed to sled down our driveway and I don’t know what!

Sign me up! Cleveland is chilly too!

That looks like it would be great for the days when I’m sitting in our under insulated family room.

ReplyReply

Could use this in my finished basement, where our only heat comes from the fumes of the furnace!

ReplyReply

I hate to pay for heat! So we could use another space heater to help keep us warm!

ReplyReply

Ooh! I LOVE me some space heaters! We just had to replace our AC/heater, and we went with a heat pump after being told it was more economical. It’s great – except when the temp drops below freezing. Then I’m sitting inside the house with my winter coat on, freezing cold! So I would LOVE this! Think I could strap it to my back to follow me throughout the house? LOL

And btw, when I’m sitting there in a parka? My hubby is sitting in a short sleeve shirt saying “it feels fine to me!” Head smack. :-)

Would make great use of such a heater. Pick me! Pick me!

ReplyReply

I’m waiting for the air conditioner version, only so much central air can do in 100+ heat!

ReplyReply

I’m the logical winner, since I live at 7K feet in Park City, UT, and I have snow in my yard SIX (count ‘em, SIX) months out of the year. Last night it got down to 2 degrees. ‘Nuff said. I’m your girl, Honeywell. :-D

ReplyReply

Love this- I have been looking for one for the home office- where I am ALL DAY, so I don’t have to heat the entire house just for me! Thanks for doing the research and finding a great one- would love this! Geez, DIY, Parenting Anecdotes and now Consumer Reports- what CAN’T you do, Miss MTM?!? ; )

ReplyReply

I couldn’t get another layer on if I tried. That Honeywell space heater would be pure perfection. If I’m not lucky enough to win, then I know what to put on my Valentine’s wish list.

Happy, warm feet. :)

ReplyReply

I want a heater!! My tootsies are freezing!! ;)

ReplyReply

Good grief! Do not interrupt the slurping of the wine! Noooooooo!!

I’m a lurker but I just had to comment on this one. I usually run warm but my hubs, who was born and raised in the south and now is here in MA, runs HOT. Since moving here he’d had to learn about building built after 1970, window AC units, and poorly insulated buildings. We have a mixed gas and electric heated apartment and had to get insulated curtains to keep the bill just under outrageous.

Anyway, hope you’re all dug out from the snow now. Cheers!

Ha! @Kelly And Geoff I love when lurkers comment! Welcome to the bright light! :)
