More birthday!

July 17, 2008

Last night I got another early birthday gift. This time, it was my MAIN gift.. and it was from Jay. Each December (Christmas) and July (both our anniversary AND my birthday- poor guy) I harangue the man so much about what he got me it’s practically unbearable. I ask for hints, dimensions, weight, etc. until he breaks down. Which isn’t often, usually he’s a rock and won’t give an inch. He gives false hints to throw me off and holds out until the actual DAY to give it to me. But this time I got him! He gave it to me two weeks early, which is a record!! I doubt it’ll ever happen again though, so I should be grateful.

Jay got me something not only useful, but something that looks incredibly attractive in the kitchen and it’s also pink (my favorite color).

What is it, you ask? Well… its a KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer!

Yes, gaze into the beauty.. has it hypnotized you yet?

,,,,

Booyakasha! This thing is fucking crazy. Did I just say the F-word? Yes I did. I’m sure any KitchenAid mixer users will agree that its not only beautiful but powerful. Kinda like me. Wow- I’m corny.

Its the Cook for the Cure model, $50 of each purchase goes to Susan G. Komen, so it’s also a good purchase for others (in many ways- they get a donation, and my family gets more cupcakes). The pink is nicer in person than in the photos, obviously. Now I’ve got no excuse to not make bread… so I’m sure Jay will be wanting banana bread. And alsoΒ  homemade mashed potatoes. I know he wants those. I think that may be the one reason he bought it for me…! Yes, Jay is wonderful, I know. Don’t say it because you’ll inflate his ego and I’ll have to deal with the consequences. I’ve decided to name her Lola.

So lets slap a Cupcake Rehab sticker on this thing and get to work!

OH! And I also wanna say congrats to April of Abby Sweets for winning the May Cupcake Hero Challenge! Your recipe looks (and I’m sure tastes) awesome. Good job! Johnny Cash would even approve, I’m sure. πŸ˜‰

  1. Haha I’ll tell him you said that… or he might read this and see it himself.

    But yes- it really is awesome. I made buttercream tonight and it came out so good I wanted to mail some to Martha.

  2. Its my baby πŸ™‚ And its a good thing I’ve got it too, since my friggin’ hand mixer just bit the dust and I haven’t had a chance to get a new one… :/

  3. all the time i used to read smaller content that also clear their motive,
    and that is also happening with this paragraph which
    I am reading here.

    upon your site and in accession capital to assert that I

    Any way I’ll be subscribing to your feeds and even I achievement you

  5. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  6. Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one!
    It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much
    the same page layout and design. Great choice of colors!

  9. Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Many thanks, However I am having troubles
    with your RSS. I don’t know the reason why
    I cannot join it. Is there anybody having the same RSS issues?
    Anyone who knows the answer can you kindly respond?
    Thanks!!

  10. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  11. This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
