meet my new friend: mr. kitchenaid mixer


for my christmas gift, my sweet sisters and mom all pitched in
and bought me my very own
lovely kitchenaid mixer!!

since it was a special order (i wanted the majestic yellow)
it only arrived yesterday
but it was totally worth the wait!!

i would love to bake these or these this weekend
but my little family will be in portland
visiting my sister in law and eating our hearts out!

hope you lovelies have a lovely weekend!

p.s. if you have any suggestions on what to do, where to eat in portland...
please leave me a comment!

LOVE the yellow. Oh, the things you and that mixer are going to make together (whipped creme is so easy with a stand mixer). Have fun in Portland -- I wish I had suggestions but I've never been there.

We love our mixer. Katie can now operate it on her own. Funny, I barely used it before we had kids, and now we use it almost weekly!

Portland - It's probably a tad early, but I always love walking around when the cherry trees are in bloom on the west side.

I love hearing about weddings, and I must say that turquoise green looks just amazing on you and the bride was beautiful...love the fit of her dress!
