My new KitchenAid Mixer

Holy Crap!  I definitely did not expect to see this under the tree this year or ever.  It's something I've been wanting since I noticed my Nana had one in her kitchen; she only used it when the holiday season rolled around and that's what made it so special.  The holy grail of kitchen artillery now sits upon my counter. Luckily I had a stick of butter conveniently squirrled away in the fridge, which allowed me to make more baked goods and test out my new toy.  As I was baking last week, Scott was dying to run and grab this beauty out of the closet in order to make my life a bit easier.  Patience won out on his end and I mushed on with the old wooden spoon.  Thankfully that spoon is now soley reserved for stirring pasta:)

Cue the music!  Dun dun da da dun da da da da da da dun dun dun…

I feel just as giddy as Max from 2 Broke Girls when Caroline bought her the purple oven.

Oh, and for the record, my cookies came out way better than I could've ever hoped for!
