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 also 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. 😉
