You can ALMOST have it all...

Today, y'all.... Today is a good day for all my female parts and my ability to procreate in the future.

Remember my little freak out session awhile back regarding my BPA infused favorite Water Bottle? Well, since then... I've been searching for the perfect replacement bottle. One that fit all my requirements... and I had no luck. After reading an article in Runners World about the BPA hoopla... I decided to opt for a stainless steel bottle... something like a Kleen Kanteen. Those bottles are awesome, they even come in huge sizes (one of my requirements... I'm too lazy to be bothered with numerous refills during the day). But... no straw and finger holder! I mean, sure you can get one or the other.... but not both in the same bottle... and that is really, really important.
So the search was still on, until I happened upon this little jewel...


Behold! Nathan Stainless Steel Bottle. Check out this description...

The Steel Flip Straw allow you to access your fluids without unscrewing the cap or tilting the bottle. The patent-pending lid from Nathan finger loop QuickClip attaches the bottle to a belt, shoulder strap, or pack with ease. The wide-mouth, screw-top lid is easy to grip and large enough for easy refilling and cleaning.

Ummm.... Yeah. Is that perfection, or what? Now, it only comes in 700 ml. But, that's okay... i'll gladly sacrifice size for this bottle. The only problem? $25! Jeez. Saving your female bits isn't cheap. I hope to pick one of these up this week.... I'll let know how I like it.

it looks awesome. And $25 is nothing for keeping you safe.

Looks cool, but if you wanna save the $25 I'll gladly give you my female bits...I don't need them anymore! :)

Glad you found one that had what you were looking for!

Amy---I'd love to be pacesetter some week, but I'm going to be out of town for the next 4 days and won't have computer access. Please ask me another week!

We are headed to Atlanta. Wish us luck on finding gas! They still have a shortage.

The first line of this blog entry might win you a pulitzer some day. 25 bucks is a lot, but you will last you forever, right?

Thank goodness you posted this...because I spent a long time a few weeks ago looking for your last post on this in hopes of finding the perfect water bottle and then gave up...so I really needed this update! Hope it's everything you've dreamed of!
