I am a proud owner of a glorious KitchenAid mixer in the most adorable shade of pink. I lub it!
On Saturday morning, we returned the mixer that my parent's purchased for us, then went to Bed Bath and Beyond (I could live in that store) to decide on what color of mixer I actually wanted.
Mark and I stood in the small appliances section ruminating for a while as to what we should get. Well, truth be told, I stood there obsessing about what the "right" color was. Mark spent his time searching through all of the mixers to see if they even had a pink one available and continued to tell me that I should get the pink one because that's the one that I like better.
I continued to obsess and explained to my darling H that although I do love the pink one, I know that a black one is more sensible. Eventually, he said, not so lovingly I might add, "Just get the pink one, you know that's the one you want! *sigh*". At that point, it was settled. We went in search of a store employee to seek out what turned out to be the only pink KA mixer in the store except for the floor model. We then spent another hour or so perusing the lovely items in the store, and then brought my new toy to it's new home - my kitchen : )
After we set it up, I proceeded to make the most delicious cookies I've ever made. It was totally the power of the KA mixer, which helped me to craft the yummiest cookies evah! They are Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Chip Cookies and they are to die for.
For your personal enjoyment...
