I know it's corny, but I love my mixer!
shh, can you hear it? that whirring noise coming from my countertop? I have waited over two years to hear that noise. it's the quiet power of my new kitchenaid artisan mixer! with all metal construction and the ability to mix 9 cups of flour at a time it will not only survive my childrearing years but it will allow me to cook for my large family faster. bryan knew I longed for this amazing appliance and he so wanted to surprise me with it but that was not in the cards. unfortunately (for him) nobody would answer the phone on that fateful day, so he was forced to cunsult me about the details. it's a good thing he did though, as I was able to find the model i really wanted on ebay much cheaper than what the local stores were asking. i ordered my lovely mixer in empire red... only to be informed the next day that the one i won had been damaged & there were no other red ones in stock!i was given my choice of 10 other colors & an upgrade to 2nd day shipping for the inconvenience. oh yeah, baby! i went with the color i really wanted... persimmon! yup, normally a fan of blue, this vibrant orange captivated me from the get-go, but because it was more unusual than the white, black, & red varieties in the department stores, it was selling on ebay for almost twice what I'd paid for my red one!in the end i got an amazing deal on an unusual color & it arrived just in time for holiday baking! life is good, and pretty tasty now too!
