I had wanted this mixer for years. Especially during the holidays when I do a lot of baking. Christmas mornings would come and go- and no mixer. My DH said it would take up a lot of space and ..."do you think you'd really use it"?
By Christmas morning, the baking was done and when my mixer wasn't under the tree, I really didn't think too much about it. Santa has always been very generous in his gifts to me.
But each time I wanted to bake-I would say under my breath... "I sure wish I had that mixer". At this stage, when there is something we really want, we usually get it. We may do a little reading, check for an upcoming sale, but we treat ourselves throughout the year and don't always wait for a special occasion. However, I didn't treat myself to the mixer. Maybe it would take up too much counter space, maybe I wouldn't use it that often. Finally... a few years ago my sister and niece gave me this gorgeous machine. It sits out on my counter and I bet I use it a few times a month- no, not every week-but often enough to justify the counter space.
I bring this up because today I ran her hard.
After all it's the holidays and there are goodies to be baked.
Thank you Dee-Dee and Devon.
