…I said almost.
This was my Christmas gift…
… to myself!
Okay, now wait… it’s not like that. See? I had to act fast!! I’m not known for that, but in this case… I just had to!
This is how it happened…
I was cruising around on Craig’s List (I love that “place”!) looking for something for my oldest son, and low & behold… someone posts this mixer (not actually THIS one – one like it) for only $150 bucks. It said that a little old lady bought it and was only used twice, but you never know these things… even so, $150! So, I emailed them and set a time to get it right away! RIGHT AWAY. I was so worried that someone else would show up with the money before I could get there. I took my big 6′ 31/2″ , 200 lb son with me – just in case. But, it truly was a little old lady that had it, and she just couldn’t use it because of its weight and size. She did, in fact, only use it twice – and you wouldn’t even have known it.
PLuuuuuuss, she threw in a meat grinder attachment!
Honestly, I knew it was a good deal, but I didn’t know how good until I got home and googled the mixers. I thought I had the regular size one, but after going to the Kitchen Aid site… I found out that this is the Pro 6! A five hundred-dollar mixer! Wooohooo! (Happy Dance!)
And guess what? I’ve used the beegeebers out of it already! Christmas cookies, sweet breads, pizza dough, more cookies, waffles, biscotti and even more cookies! I LOVE IT!
I even put together a little box of goodies and sent it to the little lady who sold it to me. I told her it had a good home and was getting LOTS of use! She will be happy about that.
And those of you who know how small my kitchen is… well, it is just planted on the counter and it’s going to stay there! Everyone else will just have to deal with it (me included)!
So… that is how I got my own Christmas gift. No wrapping necessary! Just let me get right to it!
