this is my mixer. it has died. i am so sad.
aaron bought it for me for my birthday after i had graduated from culinary school in 2004. it was pretty special. it was a refurbished one because we didn't have any money for a new one, and even the refurbished one was expensive for us. so it was already on it's last leg, and having it on for an hour straight, like i do sometimes, isn't exactly easy on the machine.
a few months ago i could tell it was dying because the motor sounded horrible. then within the last month, i would have it on the first speed, and it would kick itself up to the third speed, which was a little annoying.
so last week i was making the icing for gavins' cupcakes for school, and it just wouldn't turn on any more. thank goodness i made enough extra for haydens' birthday too, because i now had no mixer.
last night i was taking care of the boys, giving them a shower, and i walked into the kitchen to find a big box on the counter with a big red bow on the top. and look what i got...
isn't it beautiful??? (i am so lame, i know)
aaron TOTALLY surprised me with it. i was thinking i would have to wait until christmas for a new one, and turn down cake orders in the mean time because i had no mixer, and there is NO WAY i can do buttercream by hand.
so it's brand-spanking new with a bigger motor than my last one. and now i have 2 bowls too (which are like $60 to buy seperate) which is awesome.
thank you so much my thoughtful husband!
