Birthday Brag!

I am one VERY happy person right now! I received some money for my birthday and I thought I would use it towards my SAB purchase, but then I got an email from eBay about a favorite seller. I have been watching this guy for over a year now, just waiting for the time I could order from him. What did I order??? I am getting a Kitchen Aid Accolade 400 watt stand mixer!!!! I have been asking for a Kitchen Aid mixer for 4 years now. Finally we had the money and opportunity to buy it! I'm SO excited! It should be here within a week, so just in time for Christmas cookies!!! I got the Lemongrass Green one, I am hoping to do my kitchen similar to Rachael Ray's in 30 minutes Meals. Right now our kitchen is a blank slate (actually it needs a complete overhaul!) I figured I could get the mixer in whatever color I wanted and design the kitchen to match! LOL A little backwards maybe, but I've wanted to do my kitchen in those colors since I first saw 30 Minute Meals!



Part 2 to my wonderful birthday...
I had asked my FIL and his friend if they could build me an ink pad/marker/reinker storage unit. They enjoy woodworking and I thought they would like the challenge. Well that was months ago. I've been very patient and hadn't said anything until about 10 before my birthday. I asked how they were coming on the storage unit. And Tony says "Well, maybe for your birthday." I said "Oh good, that's in 10 days ;)" LOL Well I guess they hadn't realized that it was that close to my birthday. Anyway fast forward to Thanksgiving. We get back from going to see Casino Royale (great movie btw!)and my FIL and step MIL are there, they give me my birthday card and in it is a printed picture and a note. They said they were sorry for forgetting my birthday and they wanted me to have what I wanted, so they ordered the storage unit for me!!! I can't believe it! So in about a week I'm getting this....



So this year I have had the best birthday I've had in a LONG time. Now I just need the money to fill the storage unit LOL. Actually, I'm about halfway there!

that looks like an awesome storage unit. I'm in the market for one myself. My husband is carpenter and has been promising to make me one but at this point I'm so tired of waiting, I'd just rather buy it.

You will LOVE your new mixer. I got one a few years ago and it is like having an extra pair of hands in the kitchen. I love that while it is mixing something, I can put things away! Great birthday gifts!

What great birthday presents! You'll love your mixer! I've had mine for a few years and it was a result of watching Martha Stewart! Mine is white diamond and figured it would go with whatever color kitchen I could dream up. I love the color of your's though! It's beautimous! Your ink storage area is great too! Enjoy your gifts!

Happy Birthday! You'll love your mixer. I got one a couple of years ago. I'm getting an ink pad holder close to yours for Christmas, have some friends that are making them! Can't wait, either!
