Christmas presents....

I very nearly bought myself a kitchenaid mixer the week before Christmas. I make lots of cookies every year to give to all my friends at this time of year and once again I burned out the motor of the hand mixer I had. I just couldn't justify the $400 price tag (in Costco) so I bought another $30 hand mixer. I figured I could buy a new one each year for the next 10 years!

I know at some point I just have to bite the bullet and buy one, but I just couldn't do it at this time :)

Helen - do you live in Ontario? You NEED one of these mixers...and I know where you can get one cheap LOL
The place my mom got mine gives us some pretty decent discounts because we work for the police. So think it over wink.gif

Yes Melissa, I am in Ontario. North of Toronto.

 

My husband tells me that he bought some a few years (3+) ago from a factory outlet somewhere, he can't remember where, which have been used all day, everyday, since he got them, to mix ink!

 

I know I need one!

They have the kitchenaid mixers for much less on amazon every so often. I think I've seen them for less than $300. maybe even $250.

I get in so much trouble when I put on FI's Fox T-shirts. My dad is the Thor rep for our area, and everytime he sees someone with Fox clothing, he takes it away and changes it out for Thor stuff. It's crazy! FI used to have a Fox head in the house, and he had to take it down everytime my parents came over. I still think that Fox has cuter stuff though.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
