Like most of the women I know, my mom is the best cook I know. Even when I copy and do everything the same as her recipes, it still isn't quite the same. That being said I always like to use the same things my mom uses. My mom has a really old mixer that she has had forever. It makes the best rolls, cookies, you name it, it was the best. So I always told my mom that when I grew up/got married that I wanted that mixer. My heart broke a bit the day she told me they don't even make it anymore!
Well, years have passed since that moment and I got over it. I figured I'd never have it and I would move on in life with my adorable cute red kitchen aid. But still....while using said kitchen aid I would still day dream about that old mixer. Then the thought came to me! Hello?! Ebay!!!! And so the search began. A few months back I found THE mixer!! I watched it for a few days and when it came down to crunch time I was ready! I even had my computer open, signed in, and on the bidding page for hours before just so I would be ready. I went to put in my final big and guess what?! I LOST :( Leaving me signed in on the same page made it so when I finally had some activity on the page, I had to log back in losing the sale. I was devastated. Losing something makes you realize how much you really really want it.
Well, I would occasionally check here and there thinking I had lost my chance forever when a few months ago THERE IT WAS!!! And cheaper than the other one! This time I was NOT going to lose! I was out of town during the bidding process so I had my wonderful friend Shauna do my bidding for me and she is a good luck charm! I WON!! And I was ecstatic! Finally after waiting for it to ship it has arrived, in all its glory! It needs a good scrub down but I love it all the same. Here it is!
