The Definition of Excited

Look what I got in the mail! (Click to enlarge.)

The instructions were to purchase one of these. But with the Black Friday deals on Amazon, I had enough left over to get one of these, too!

I have been without a mixer for three holiday seasons (!) -- I have had to borrow one for baking day. I haven't made oatmeal raisin cookies (one of our favorites) since I burnt the last mixer out. I swore (not really) after borrowing a neighbor's KitchenAid, that I wouldn't buy another mixer until I could afford a KitchenAid myself. I can't wait to get baking. And we already have a fajita and margarita party planned for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Thanks, Mom and Dad!

And Happy Black Friday! (Note: Almost all of my Christmas shopping is done in my jammies at the computer, and I LOVE it!)


  1. OK, I'm jealous!!

    (just kidding, but I'd really love those items too)

    My blender broke when baby dropped on the tile floor!

  2. Congrats! My MIL gave me hers a few years ago. I love, love, love it! Bigger question....what color?:)

  3. My Father in law is who gave me mine, many many years ago... Love it! He got this bizarre color that they couldn't get rid of on clearance, he then turned around and took it to a different Kohl's and even exchanged it for white... to match my kitchen... a very sneaky guy!!!



  4. Grace,

    White! (Since we don't have a house yet, and I don't know what color my kitchen will end up being.)


Thanks for stopping by!
