exciting news!

ok, it's not biiig news, but for those of you who read my last thursday 13, you know i wished for a kitchenaid mixer for christmas.

well, we were at my mother in law's house for thanksgiving, and we were talking about present ideas, going through the ads, wondering whether or not we really want to get up at 5 am to go get great deals on various electronic items, etc. i told her i was going to go to kohl's at 5 am to get a stand mixer - it was $100 off!!

she said, don't bother, i already have one that i don't use, and you can have it.

!!!!!!!!!!!!

she bought one at a mervyn's clearance last year, and she didn't like it, b/c it is too heavy to pull out every time she needed to mix something, and she doesn't have room on her counter to leave it out.

so she just gave it to me!! 10 speeds and 4 quarts of mixing bad assed-ness!!

she's a wonderful woman.

i already used it twice, to make beer bread and meatloaf on saturday. when i called her and told her, she said, "poor mixer, it's going to wish i never gave it away, it has to do so much work now!"

anyway, i love it! one christmas wish out of the way. oh, and i bought some new cutting boards and i knife set (1/2 off at jc penney!) this weekend, so that's two more off the list...i guess i neeed to make a new list! ;-)
