I got it! I got it!


Did you get everything you hoped you would get for Christmas?? If you've been reading my blog for sometime you know that I really wanted a Kitchenaid Artisian Stand Mixer in Gloss Cinnamon...well I got it!! Woo Hoo! Actually, I got it a few weeks before Christmas. I told hubby I needed it before Christmas so that I could do all my Christmas baking. I Love it! It is like an art piece in my kitchen! For Christmas I got some other things for my kitchen that I wanted...like a new stainless steel toaster, new stainless kitchen utensils, and a stainless crock pot. Now to get back to work on redoing our kitchen cabinets! Oh I sure hope to get it finished by spring!!

The very best gift I got didn't cost any money! Our 20 yr old daughter made a dvd of a bunch of photos & videos of us as a family with background music. It is so nice and she did it all on her computer. It brought tears to mine & hubby's eyes! At the end of the dvd it said thanks for all the memories we've shared! Awe! So sweet!

Oh and an update: my last post said we were off to look at a new (used) car for our daughter 3 hours away...well we didn't end up getting it. Hubby determined it wasn't kept up as well as the owner was telling us. So now unless we find a car this week we are off to Dallas next weekend to hopefully find her a Nissan Altima. Seem to be cheaper prices in Dallas. Wish us luck!


So tell me what you got for Christmas.

Isn't it GREAT receiving the things we really want?

Ooooh! Congrats congrats on getting the mixer. How sneaky to need it for Christmas baking. :)
My husband and I live in Germany where kitchenaids are (gulp) like $700. Totally crazy! A mixer has been my dream. Going to have to keep dreaming!

Darlene that is a really nice gift!
Love the warm cinammon color. One of my favorites.
You saw my new Keurig coffee machine...I'm enjoying it.

Hi Darlene, What a great gift you got! You must cook alot. I cook some, but not enough. That's what hubby says anyways!

It must be nice to have all of your Christmas decorations put away and your house back in order. I know I will be vacuuming up glitter forever! I'm planning on taking mine down right after New Years. Talk to you soon! Kristen
