• Wayfair Saturn Steel Fire Pit Giveaway

    August 12, 2013

    After the Falmouth Road Race yesterday, Mal and I invited Jess and her husband Scott back to our house to hang out. Our afternoon and evening included drinks, dinner, and lots and lots of laughs. Seriously. Jess and Scott are hilarious. At one point, Mal and I both agreed our faces actually hurt from laughing so much!

    Our evening also included trying out our new fire pit that my friends at Wayfair sent me to review.


    Wayfair has all sorts of great fire pits in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles (there are some seriously funky ones) on their website. Mal and I picked the Fireside Escapes Saturn Steel Fire Pit because of its simple design and smaller size. Our backyard isn’t all that big, so we didn’t want a huge fire pit monstrosity taking up half of our backyard. We also liked the shape and low proximity to the ground, so we could invite friends over and all comfortably sit around it.


    Please note the pug in the photo below. He was so sneaky with the kindling.




    He’s so darn cute. Obviously, we couldn’t get mad. It’s Murphy’s world…


    We hung out by the fire pit for quite awhile, telling stories and chatting about life.


    We ended up keeping the “spark guard screen” off the fire pit for the majority of evening—mostly because it made for easy access when we wanted to add more wood.


    Plus, the fire wasn’t really sparking at all.



    Here’s what the fire pit looks like with the spark guard screen on:


    It also makes a great piece of equipment for chasing and trying to trap pugs!


    Scott and Murphy had a grand old time running around the yard with the spark guard screen. The two of them had us laughing so hard!


    High five?


    Denied! Haha!


    I also really liked that the outside rim of the fire pit stayed cool. I wouldn’t want someone to walk by and burn their leg on it or something like that. And, hey, it’s great for putting up and warming your feet!


    Ok, giveaway time!

    I would love to win this because my daughter keeps begging me to get a fire pit for our backyard!


    Amy August 13, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    Yep, I tweeted too!


    Lindsey August 13, 2013 at 6:26 pm

    I would love to win a fire pit! It gets so cold at night here and it would be nice to enjoy a warm evening on my patio without freezing!


    Amy August 13, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    Wonderful addition to our backyard, and so much fun with the kids (and adults) to make s’mores!


    Ali @ WHOLEistically Fit August 13, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    Fall weather has been creeping in and a backyard fire pit will keep our backyard patio rocking for many months to come! 😉 (Plus, I’ve always wanted one and finally have a back yard to use it in!)

    My husband loved having a fire pit growing up, and I’d love for us to have one for our place.


    Courtney August 13, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    I would love a fire pit because I’ve wanted one ever since we got our house almost five years ago. I feel like we’ve become much more outdoorsy lately and it would do wonders for extending our outside time together sitting around relaxing and catching up. Would remind me of summers at Duxbury Beach and the bonfires we used to have!


    Jennifer August 13, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    Oh, I NEED a firepit, because this weekend my husband expressed an interest in using our grill to start a fire (bad idea!). I talked him out of it, but I’m sure it’ll come up again…


    Michelle August 13, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    I want to win it to make smores with my kids!


    LA August 13, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    Would love a cool fire pit like this! We beach camp all year long and this would be perfect!


    Anna August 13, 2013 at 10:23 pm

    We’ve lived in our “new” house for a year now (bought it last summer). Would love to make better use of the outdoor space and this is the perfect thing!


    Kendall August 13, 2013 at 10:44 pm

    I’d love to win one and give it to my parents, who just bought a new house with their dream backyard!


    Renee August 13, 2013 at 11:33 pm

    Yay! I have been wanting to buy a fire pit and this one looks PERFECT!! =)


    Megan August 14, 2013 at 12:05 am

    I need a fire pit. Mine was destroyed in hurricane sandy, and we haven’t gotten around to replacing it yet. :(


    michelle kim August 14, 2013 at 1:41 am

    How cool! I would love to have this for the nice summer nights (and I think it keeps the bugs away?).


    Mary August 14, 2013 at 3:05 am

    Everyone has such good reasons so I guess mine would be that my anniversary is in a couple weeks and this would be a WONDERFUL surprise…my husband, like other boys…LOVES fire:P


    kayla August 14, 2013 at 7:05 am

    i’d love to win this fire pit for my boyfriend so it can replace his tiny, tiny one!


    Jennifer O'Brien August 14, 2013 at 7:47 am

    I would love to sit around this fire pit and make smores with the family on Cape Cod


    Jennifer August 14, 2013 at 8:09 am

    I would love one for our backyard, as we just finished a new patio and that would complete the look! Besides, who doesn’t love to make s’mores?


    Corinne August 14, 2013 at 8:25 am

    I’ve been longing for a fire pit like this! We just bought a house on the North Shore with only a tiny yard, tiny but what a pit like this could really work for!!! So cool!


    Yin August 14, 2013 at 9:14 am

    I’d love to have a fire pit to appreciate my backyard more, taking in the fall season during the nights!


    Cindy August 14, 2013 at 9:52 am

    I have a “milestone” birthday coming in September. This would be great to have at the party to sit around and tell stories about how “young” I am.


    Lexi August 14, 2013 at 10:08 am

    OMG. I’ve been wanting one of these so badly to roast marshmallows. I’m a smore’s addict. It’s just not the same roasting them over our gas grill!


    Stephanie @ Food Fit 4 Real August 14, 2013 at 10:13 am

    We love spending time outside, regardless of the time of year. With two young kids and two dogs, we are in the backyard a LOT. We have always talked about getting a fire pit, not only for the cooler fall nights but to also use for backyard camput outs! Roasting hot dogs and marshmallows over the fire pit would be so much fun!


    Erin August 14, 2013 at 10:21 am

    I’ve been wanting to put in a firepit all summer and this is perfect!


    Erin August 14, 2013 at 10:24 am

    Annnnd tweeted!


    Karli August 14, 2013 at 10:50 am

    I’d love it for summer and fall!


    Shari August 14, 2013 at 10:59 am

    I have always wanted a fire pit.


    Sam August 14, 2013 at 10:59 am

    My husband and I just bought our first home and this would be awesome for our backyard!!


    Amy @ Healthy and Fit for Real August 14, 2013 at 11:17 am

    I would love to have this to sit around on cool fall/summer nights and enjoy a couple of cocktails! :)


    Jess H. August 14, 2013 at 11:51 am

    Hoping there’s still time to enter! I bought a house recently and a fire pit would help me make it more welcoming and homey.


    mel August 14, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    Cool giveaway! My hubby and I were just talking about getting a fire pit…or he wanted to build one (disaster). We would love to win so we could roast marshmellows and drink bourbon cider with friends outside in the fall. :)


    Amanda August 14, 2013 at 1:02 pm

    Our second wedding anniversary is coming up and I was planning to get my husband a fire pit. This would be great!


    Andrea August 14, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    I love s’mores, so this firepit would be perfect!


    Tricia August 14, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    Anything that allows you to spend more time outside!


    Jon August 14, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    I want one!!!!!! Please?


    Jon August 14, 2013 at 3:27 pm
    Stephanie August 14, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    Because we don’t have one and it would be nice to have one :)


    Carissa August 14, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    I would love this for the backyard to spend time with family, a glass of wine, and chat. Seems so relaxing!


    Donna Dee August 15, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    I would love to win the fire pit because our old one was just dropped off at the dump last weekend.


    Joanna August 19, 2013 at 11:34 am

    We have a small backyard in Somerville and often have barbecues, so this looks like it would fit in our yard and make for some fun times. And we could make s’mores!


    Daphne August 19, 2013 at 5:23 pm

    I would love to win the fire pit to enjoy with my new husband on our new balcony. Thanks!


    Chris November 25, 2015 at 1:39 pm
