Sometimes the path of least resistance is the one I take. I hate to admit it but it is true. And this was my history when it came to my home phone, internet and tv system. The truth is our internet was always going out and causing all our related systems including our home security system to go out as well. Sure we would be woken up at 3 am with our alarm tripped ( because our internet service had cut out) and we would be panicking, the dogs would be barking and the kids would be crying and sure it was annoying and made our neighbors want to strangle us- but still it was easier to just stay with the status quo then to CHANGE to a new internet phone and cable service provider.
And then I switched to Verizon Fios and all I can say is these past six months have taught me several lessons about how a GREAT service provider like FIOS can CHANGE your life and why great decisions require toasting and cocktails to celebrate!
#1 RELIABILITY is EVERYTHING. In our time with FIOS we have not been out at all, aka there have been no 3 am being woken up by an alarm and feeling like your house is on fire outages. This reliability ALONE has made me a believer that FIOS is the provider to choose. And I think that deserves a BLACK CHERRY BOMBSHELL DRINK and a TOAST!
- Frozen black cherries
- 1½ oz. Kentucky bourbon
- 1 oz. SPARKLING ICE Black Raspberry
- Crush cherries into bottom of a glass
- Pour bourbon then SPARKLING ICE over crushed cherries and ice
- Add more cherry for garnish
#2 When it comes to TV viewing LESS IS NOT MORE. Hard to believe but with my old provider I was paying more than I am right now per month and was getting- are you ready- NOT A SINGLE PREMIUM MOVIE CHANNEL. that’s right I could not watch The Affair or The Leftovers because basically I was priced out. With FIOS I get every single premium channel and get ready- it is still CHEAPER than my monthly bill from my old provider. I know it’s mind -blowing. right?! I mean not that all I do is watch TV but it sure is nice to have a wide array of prorams to choose from so that when I do get a free moment to sit down and watch- I can get lost in shows that speak to me and my experiences and indulge in the celebrities like Justin Theroeux ( who is BEYOND brilliant in The Leftovers. And yes I think it’s time for another Toast with a CELEBRITY COLADA
- ½ crushed pineapple
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 1 cup vodka
- 2 cups cold Coco Joy Water
- 2 limes
- Combine pineapple, ice, vodka and Coco Joy Water in a blender and pulse until smooth
- Garnish with limes
#3 The Ability to live stream on every device thanks to the Fios TV To Go
Fios Mobile App in every nook and cranny of your house is HIGHLY underrated. With Fios Not only do we get all our favorite basic and premium channels but we get them streaming live on all of our devices. So I can be watching Girls on our living room flat screen while my son can watch his shows in the family room and my daughter can watch hers in the kitchen and yes we can do this all at the same time. I’m not syaing this is a regular family practice but when we all want to watch three different things and I WANT TO KEEP THE PEACE and just enjoy a cocktail– I can tell you that FIOS is there for me- BIG TIME! which of course cal for another toast with a BEST DRESSED BLUEBERRY
- 4 oz. Blueberry Pomegranate SPARKLING ICE
- 2 oz. Pomegranate Juice
- Pomegranate Seeds
Add a splash of vodka or prosecco for a cocktail modification
- Fill a glass with Blueberry Pomegranate SPARKLING ICE
- Add pomegranate juice
- Top with 5-6 blueberries and a small handful of pomegranate seeds
- Stir to combine
And of course happy husbands – make for happy wives like me. And my happy husband had this to add: “With the Super Bowl coming up I am so glad to have FIOS for its amazing high quality picture which is always in high definition and makes the games really come alive.”
So what are you waiting for- make the switch and TOAST to a NEW way of living with Fios!
