Birthday Present!

I had a special delivery yesterday, in the arms of the man I love. Look what he got me as a birthday/wedding present! WOW!!! You are looking at the KitchenAid Professional 600 Series stand mixer, complete with all-metal attachments, splatter-shield, and securing pins so the bowl doesn't wobble at all. What a wonderful gift!

The truth is, I decided to post this for my friends that have heard me say that this is the one thing I've been most looking forward to getting this summer, hoping to put a whole bunch of Target gift cards from our wedding together to make this purchase. It's the one kitchen appliance I've always wanted! Now my sweetheart made this corny little dream come true!

And the second part to the gift might seem a little strange, but it truly was a gift to me! Brent knows that my frugal self would worry about the cost, so even though you don't typically tell the gift-receiver what was spent on a gift, he shared with me that he was able to purchase this using a gift certificate he had been saving and a bonus check from school for extra work he had done! He also bought it during a promotion so we'll be getting a FREE ice cream maker attachment!! Who-hoo!!

What a blessing my sweetheart is!

Now I better go get ready for the day... I've already been busy as I woke up FOUR HOURS EARLY because working nights sometimes really messes up your schedule. Yuk! But, the day is about to turn around because Brent is taking me to Door County for the day! You might remember my fun weekend there last fall, talked about here. Today we're hoping to see the Cherry Blossoms in bloom, visit a fun state park, and catch some of the quaint shops and antique stores. It should be a wonderful day!

Congrats on finally getting your mixer. My mom had one of these for years growing up and she LOVED it. Got lots of good use out of it, so definitly worth the cost. Enjoy Door Cty. We will miss having you there with us in a month! Enjoy your day.
