From Scarves to Mixers


In a cruel twist of fate, we did not get a single flake of snow on Christmas (as the forecast had promised).  The storm went south of us.

But this helped ease the pain.........


A Candy Apple Red KitchenAid mixer.

Yes, I cried.

With a week and a half left of Christmas break, I'll have plenty of time to break it in.

My Pinterest boards are filled with domestic escapades I want to attempt.

And speaking of domestic escapades, here are four pins I've actually made this last month........


1.  //  2.  //  3.  //  4.  

We loved every single recipe!  They will all be repeated in the future!  

The mister even got in on the cooking action.  He banished me from the kitchen to make the bacon wrapped smokies by himself.


So to calm my kitchen controlling nerves, I left the room to peruse Pinterest.

And it's possible that a certain scarf I'd pinned went from my "wish list" to "into my closet".

I really needed it.  It was the only way I could duplicate an outfit I'd pinned........


 scarf  //  outfit

I mean, I had every element of that outfit, except the scarf.  Not to mention Shanna and Sharon had been teasing me with their styled versions.

And when the mister is in the kitchen, you have to find ways to cope.

Online shopping seems to work.

But now that I know the mister is proficient in the kitchen, he might regret showing off his culinary skillz.

He just can't touch my KitchenAid.

  20. Stopping by from the OHP link up. We barely got any snow here south of Oklahoma City and we were promised a blizzard. Being from the North I'm a little sad about it. I got a kitchenaid as well but mine is in Raspberry Ice. Hope you have fun breaking yours in!

  21. Your new KitchenAid is SOOOO pretty! Can't wait to see all the yummies that it produces. And don't worry about buying the leopard scarf. You will get SOOO much wear out of it!

  25. How fun! I can't wait to see all the foods you make with your new mixer! Also, is it bad that my first thought when seeing that picture was "OMG, it's red!"? haha
    And that scarf is adorable, especially with those red pants! ...I'm starting to think I just really like red...
    Glad to see you had a good Christmas!

  26. So awesome! What a great gift - the mixer and the man cooking!! I think I would let him use the mixer too, never know when a cooking man will come in handy. Enjoy your Christmas break! I have to go back to school next Wednesday instead of getting the whole 2 weeks but it's still a nice break. Cheers to the new year :)

  27. Awesome Christmas gift. I have my grandma's vintage mixer. It's that pale butter yellow...though it is getting pretty chipped. Someday maybe I'll get it refinished. She gave me two vintage white glass mixing bowls for it as well.

  28. I want a kitchenaid mixer but my vintage 50's mixer just keeps cranking so I can't justify getting a new one! I was truly disappointed that we didn't get any snow. Have fun on the rest of your Christmas break.
