Alright, people -- I'm going to try to update my blog regularly, like I used to. So for the first post of 2008, I'm telling you about my Christmas present. My parents got me a . . . wait for it . . . a KitchenAid 5-quart mixer! YAY! Thanks, mom and dad -- I love you lots!
My mom said she was sorry that it was all she got me. Silly mommy. Of course it's more than I could've asked for! (Now what will my future fiance get me when he wants to propose? HA! Of course, he'll get the copper KitchenAid Professional! Duh!!!)
What did I do to celebrate? I had a christening party for the mixer. Or a blessing. Or whatever it would be called . . . Anyway, I used it for the first time to mix oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough. And I had friends over to help me eat the cookies and play games! I LOVE parties!
Check out the pictures!
Thing I'm thankful for: Besides a new mixer? Clarise -- because she helped me bake the cookies!
