My First KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Since Landon and I got married in June of 2002, I have wanted a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. We registered for one at Meier and Frank for our wedding, but when it came time to open the gifts after the honeymoon in Nova Scotia, there wasn't a mixer in the whole pile. Every time we had extra money over the years, other things took priority. Buying a house, remodeling the house, paying for tuition, having two children, paying off our cars, buying our second house, and then there were the trips to Philly, Washington, D.C., and Disneyland.

Finally, with Landon's recent severance, I declared we would each take a slice from the stash to buy whatever it was we wanted. After the past few months and the stress we've been through, it seemed we were each deserving of a small reward. I thought about it long and hard. I really wanted an iPhone. But I also really wanted a KitchenAid Mixer. Hmmm. Dilemma. In the end, with all the breadmaking and cooking I've been up to, I decided on the KitchenAid, while Landon put his slice into savings until the new iPhone comes out July 11th (for $199!). Although the iPhone was tempting (to the point where I wondered where my sense of self-control was), in the end, I decided I actually liked being unplugged during certain times of the day. Certain applications can be a little addicting, after all.

And so I am the proud new owner of a KitchenAid Mixer, which I broke in just this evening mashing potatoes. I'm kind of in love with the colors KitchenAid offers for their Artisan mixers--aren't you? I settled on "ice," one of my favorite shades of blue/green, and close to the color in which I painted our bathroom. I love its vintage look,don't you?

Its a BEAUTIFUL mixer. I almost wish mine would die just so I could buy a new one in a fantastically fun color. I find that my ipod touch works for almost everything an iphone would work for, as long as I'm at home or in a wifi hotspot. I still want an iphone someday though.. some day.

Just stumbled upon your blog. It's a nice read. :)

I have always dreamed of getting one of those mixers. The color you picked is lovely.
