oh, you gorgeous lil vixen in your red dress, you....

okay. now am i the only person who thinks this is FLIPPIN FANTASTIC?????????????

i mean, SERIOUSLY??? a jumbo kitchenaid MIXER???? what genius MADE THIS???


i believe i was in Sears or Kohls or ... okay definitely Sears and we're rushingrunningraving madman-and-madwoman trying to hunt down birthday gifts for vlad's two nephews- ..on Saturday... w/the rush of black weekend whatever shopping... in which i wanted no part of... and he tells me the DAY OF the party oops! we need presents! (crap.) -and i run into THIS sexy lady. oh yeah. i mean YOU, you red vixen kitchenaid mixer, you. and i stopped. in a walkway. and took this photo and managed to make well EVERYONE standing within ten feet of me laugh bc i?

yeah. stopped black. weekend. traffic. to take a photo. and when i got weird looks (okay i'm used to them by now, but still, c'mon this is so blatantly obviously cool) i exclaimed, much to my husbands dismay,

"well how could i NOT take a picture of this??? i mean really? this is the shizz, dude! just LOOK AT IT!"

and all the moms just burst out laughing and they shook their heads and some were mumbling, oh, what a crazy girl. or maybe just agreeing with me and giving me the 'i have to laugh at her bc she's just so cooky how can i not?'

and then i proceeded to, yes, approach the mixer, grasp the edge of the lusciously thick metal bowl and peer into the bowels of mixing heaven. it even had a beat attachment on it. now how. genius. IS THAT.

and the man in the photo? yeah. that was my husband. who was all "dude i know you're gonna put that on your blog so KEEP ME OUTTA THIS." but duh. i needed a PERSON in the photo to be a scale so you can really see just how massive and mega this baby really is.

but don't tell him i totally went against his wishes. k? i like not gettin' yelled at.

(and sorry that this isn't really a post persay, and i know i have things that i need to take responsibility for (thanks tweak and mama dawg!!!!) but i am in SUCH a funk today and i don't think anything but this mixer will make me happy and... i didn't want to bring ya'll down. just sayin'. like i tried to use my phone to take pics of what i had to SLUDGE THRU this morning on my lovely two hour commute but the photos would. not. send online, no matter how many times i begged and pleaded. and everything i've tried to accomplish for the day is goin' down the drain in the same way... there is some little glitch in every. single. thang. i try to do today. sigh. i'm just gonna keep my head down for now, folks.)

So sorry your day is sucking. If it makes you feel better we actually had snow flurries here in So Carolina today! Talk about suck. Southern people completely freak out when they see any form of frozen precipitation. The grocery will be packed and all the milk & bread will be gone!
This will cheer you up; I'm making great strides on your scarf! It's 18 inches so far:)

Gemmerzz- it was actually for charity, you put your spare change INSIDE the mixing bowl. i say, blasphemy, but.. to each his own. and it was so awesome in real life. :)
